shell-fm url format

what is the station url format in shell-fm?

using the nice and fantastic shell-fm player, the last-fm player in your beloved terminal,
you might wanna know which channels you can listen to and preferably in which
format you have to enter them.

All I found over the interwebz are here:


Hehe, meanwhile crawling through the omniscient dump, I just found another friendly
cli player lastbash (homepage) and wikipedia article. neat.

can haz this channels e.g.:

lastbash "lastfm://globaltags/jungle"
lastbash "lastfm://globaltags/glitch"
lastbash "lastfm://user/phaidros7/neighbours"
lastbash "lastfm://artist/Salmonella Dub/similarartists"

now: fun!

locale foo

locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory

now and then this happenes to me on a new machine. usually I just set

root@gargamel:~# cat /etc/profile.d/locale 
export LANGUAGE = "en_US.UTF-8"
export LC_ALL = "en_US.UTF-8"
export LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"

still it complains about missing default locale. so we hafta do this:

localedef -v -c -i en_US -f UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8 

because usually en_US is probably defined.
we r done. we give back to the connected funk-haeusers!

little bash helper: mkcd

mkcd - mkdir & cd directly into it

phaidros@42:~/ #$ echo 'mkcd() { mkdir -p "$@" && cd $_; }' >> ~/.bashrc
phaidros@42:~/ #$ . ~/.bashrc
phaidros@42:~/ #$ mkcd /path/to/a/new/folder/
phaidros@42:/path/to/a/new/folder/#$ echo "Well done :) !"

Little, easy, damn useful.
