Changing the "From" address field in /usr/bin/mail

Blog categories: 

Today I needed to send a mail to a mailing list, which I joined using an old mail address, which turned into an alias only address a while ago. I hence needed to send a single mail to the list with this old address and did not want to add it as an identity to my mail application - it simply wasn’t worth the effort.

Timecode 4

A hundred times, I wished to have some application, that inserts a visual timecode into a movie or image sequence, e. g. for embedding timecode  blender sequences or delay measurements or whatever. After some browsing, I found no application fitting my needs and therefore started to write my own, using Trolltech’s Qt3.X of past time. Now, I upgraded to Qt4.X, migrated the old application towards it and added some further functionality (e. g. dragging of the timecode box, etc).

I moved the project to sourceforge once and now moved it to github - just to keep on moving. The application is not super-sophisticated, but it works :) Anyhow, if you experience problems with it, please drop me a note.
