Gtick - Gnome Metronome

If you are a musician you probably nedded to use a metronome one time or another. It's common to use metronome apps on mobile phones these days but to me, every time I need to practice I'm sitting on my computer chair and having a metronome on my PC has te advantage to sound through bigger and louder speakers than my celphone has.

Gtick is an awesome metronome built for the Gnome environment.

You can define the bar measurement, wich pulse to accentuate, customize the sound and visualize ticks.

It's just an apt-get install away from Debian based distributions.

Rombus - Robotic Echoplaster

This album tells a story where a crew of space warriors from earth are trying to return home. They are stuck with no fuel on an alien planet where they lived for 3 months until they found that they could make fuel through a chemical process involving minerals commonly found on that place, so they started exploiting it. Alien lifeforms noticed that and stopped them with a gas poison called "The Robotic Echoplaster".

Remote backups Linux - Back in time

Back in time is a tool for making snapshots of files & folders that runs on GNU/Linux. It has a frontend for Gnome and KDE.
In Debian you can do the following to install it:

sudo apt-get install backintime-gnome sshfs
sudo adduser <YOURUSER> fuse 
# Now generate your key, use default location and enter a passphrase.
ssh-keygen -t dsa 
# Replace <REMOTE_USER> and <HOST> with appropriate values.
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub <REMOTE_USER>@<HOST>

Following steps are easy enough, excecute backintime-gnome. Configure your remote server and add files and folders. Configure scheduling or launch a backup now. That's it!

Easy, effective and painless ;) that's how it's supposed to be.
