Run Python Script in Background at Startup

No Comments

The easiest way to do this is to run the script using crontab, but I would advise testing you script well first as you could make a script that causes problems.

$ crontab -e

and add the line:

@reboot /home/vivek/bin/python_script.py

Save and close, and then run

# update-rc.d cron defaults

Once you reboot the script will start automatically.

Fuji Xerox DocuCentre-III 3007 Default Password

3 Comments

The default username and password for the Fuji Xerox DocuCentre-III 3007 is as follows:

Username: 11111
Password: x-admin

When accessing the web interface of the Fuji Xerox DocuCentre-III 3007 if you attempt to change any settings you will be prompted for this username and password. The default that the copier is set to is in my experience not clearly identified in the manual.

When accessing the administrator menus on the copier the code 11111 is used.

Why ConvertXtoDVD is the Best

No Comments


Lots of people out there ask what the best tool for convert those movie files you have on your computer to a playable DVD, well lets cut to the chase I think it’s ConvertXtoDVD. Now lots of people are going to say there are other programs out there that are free or better but if you want just point and click conversion then ConvertXtoDVD is the way to go.

Now I’ll be honest if I was burning a DVD that contained multi videos, say something of an Episodic nature I like more control over the menus produced so I might use something Like NeroVision, however the price you would pay for that is basically NeroVision is slow and doesn’t handle everything. The main and primary reasons I like ConvertXtoDVD is that it handles MKV files, and supports Subtitles.
