Our living room occasionally suffers from scope creep. DVDs, Bluerays, audio CDs, blank CDs/DVDs, and burned media tend to get strewn about parts of our living room. It starts out clean, but over several months things start to look less organized as more gets added. So when I came across one of my favourite CDs, the AC/DC Who Made Who CD, I decided it was time to sit down and figure out a work flow for ripping audio CDs.
One of the tasks I've been meaning to get to for a long while is to automatically generate information about a system and inject that information into a mysql database so it could be used later for printing things like specification sheets or injecting into our point-of-sale database. I finally got around to the simple job of trimming data generated by shell/cli software using a combination of cat, grep, and cut.
