The ffmpeg command is pretty rad. I’ve written about it before, but now I’m using it to rip the audio out of video podcasts that don’t need video. Extracting an mp3 from video that doesn’t need any video means I can have way more on my iPhone. So here goes:
ffmpeg -i randopodcast.flv -vcodec mpeg2video randopodcast.m2v -acodec copy randopodcast.mp3
The video is pretty irrelevant for what we’re trying to do, but it’s great to have smaller files and more of ’em!

As part of my presentations at LOPSA-East(the pdf slides of this one is here) earlier this year, I wanted to demonstrate how quickly you can get a proof-of-concept of Munki running on a recent Mac OS without Server. I had always used Greg Neagle’s awesome intro articles for MacTech(especially part 2,) which were created back in 10.6 days(simpler times, amirite?) This video takes you through the setup of a Munki repo, and goes on to demonstrate not only basic Munki interaction and functionality, but if you setup MunkiWebAdmin and the reporting scripts on your clients in addition, it does a quick tour of that interface.

Pardon the length, lack of sound and meme’s sprinkled throughout, but I hope it’s of use to someone!

Following an argument I recently had over iPhone security I thought I would post easy to access links that any fanboy can get to regarding the full disk encryption of the iPhone 3gs. En garde, I’ll let you try my Wu-Tang style.
MacWorld put up the most awesome video ever, from a number of speakers that will be at the show. I don’t know how I missed the request for a little video but I didn’t even enter anything. Which is fine, ’cause anything I would have thought of wouldn’t have been nearly as awesome as all of these clips. Awesome going guys!
