Going on holidays in La Palma ensures that you have stunning views everywhere.
When you make a timelapse, you take a lot of pictures, glueing that together to create a movie/film.
You can also take a few vertical lines from each picture, to create a timelapse picture (with the toilet rooftop being the least interesting feature though.)
Thanks Zevv, (do you have code to show?)
www.ohm2013.org – need I say more.
Right now i’m preparing/testing all that I promised to the people I camp with.
The end of the list is close, last shoppings will be done tomorrow.
On Tuesday we’ll move towards the holy grounds, set up a tent and possibly try to get some work done as volunteer.
In the evening a whisky-tasting event is afoot that will have to be populated, after which we can crawl to our sleeping bags to get up right in time for The Grande Opening Event.
Looking forward to it
In case you’re going as well, hope to see you there!

Update: I hope the timelapse video’s will be online again one day at http://sierag.nl/ohm2013/
So I added a stich from a tower [Doornse Kaap] in the forest that looks out to various sites in the area, in good weather conditions you can easily spot the DOM tower of Utrecht and the Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren in Amersfoort with the naked eye. [but not with the bad camera I used ]

Been to the dutch National Park Hoge Veluwe, where I pondered the view for a bit, and decided it was worth a new photo stitch [click, click, click, click, click, etc].

If you can afford to spend somewhere between 1 and 10k dollards, please do, every bit helps!
Read about it here on another great site, with another angle:
Thanks, it really is a good site.
Today I installed a raspberrypi as home player using the Music Player Daemon [mpd] again, instead of that old laptop, I might save some power.
Here’s what I did. [post moved to page]
Nice, I play spotify premium streaming audio using mopidy on debian now
I approximately did this:
I got debian debian-6.0.7-i386-netinst
[I have to add though that this configuration can almost be applied to ubuntu as well,
note that I use root access, so you may apply "sudo" where you like it, I can't be bothered, as I will explain later, so read on]
Next I dumped that on a 4Gb USB apparatus that I had laying abouts, with the tool: unetbootin-windows-583
[Linux users can probably dump that using a default available tool that comes with their favourable installation, but do contemplate the fact that it is only a lengthy lot of 0 and 1 combinations. With this I mean the dumping of the iso contents as well as your favourable software installation you use on your computing device]
Installed that…. [read more (post moved) here]
There has been a test site for a pretty good text to speech engine available for years from AT&T.
Here’s a script that lets you speak something from the command line:
