Skype for Linux is horrible and we use it at work so I'm kinda stuck with it unfortunately. This last weekend, the Linux client was so bad I couldn't send messages to my co-workers. So I made this program and I've been using it for a week now. It actually works pretty well for my needs. Maybe it will help someone here? :)submitted by /u/programmer_rob
So, I was listening to some music earlier today; everything was going great when all of a sudden my volume started maxing out after each song... Hmm, thats weird. But I soldier on and push through it. A little while later my sound stops working completely.
So I check my sound drivers and they are completely absent! So I check pulseaudio, I checked alsa and everything LOOKED alright. So I check the alsa-restore.service and its not able to start.. Hmm.. I reinstall some alsa modules and restart the computer. Log into my user account and still no dice. So on a lark, I log out of my user account and log into root; low and behold, the sound works perfectly 0.0!
So I make a few changes in the main alsa.conf file and try restarting the alsa-restore.service and it goes through without a hitch. So I log out of root, knowing my sound is working, and back into my user account. Sound isn't working... -.-
So after a little bit of Google-fu and somebody suggests to delete the pulse configuration files, log out and log back in. So I figure that I've already tried everything else I could think of... Why not try this. So I delete the conf files and log out. Upon logging in, magically, my sound is working again!!
TL;DR: Sound wasn't working. Deleted configuration files for pulseaudio, logged out and back in; sound magically works againsubmitted by /u/foreverdante

Hi - this is a cross post from wget (it was suggested I post here).
I'd like to use wget to do the following: 1) Scrape PDFs from a list of websites 2) Run weekly 3) Only download a file if its new (timestampping I assume) 4) If the file is new, keep the old file with the old timestamp appended to the name or something. If at all possible I'd like to keep the name of the website as the folder name but not keep the rest of the folder structure.
Im running it on a windows machine and if someone knows how to do it or can modify the source code Im willing to pay them. Theres a few other tasks that may make this more worth someones time. Pls msg me if you're interested.submitted by /u/andthenext

Little risk for Google in retrial vs Oracle over Android
Even if a jury orders Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google to pay the full $8.8 billion sought by Oracle Corp (ORCL.N) in an upcoming San Francisco copyright trial over the Android operating system, shareholders and analysts say it will likely have little impact on the search giant's bottom line.
