Before that I tried to get a gpx track of it for use as guide on the road – but couldn’t find one.
So, I got a map (the Xploreit Map of County Kerry, because it covers the whole route contrary to the OSI Discovery Series Maps where I would have needed three), rented a bike (right near the start of the track at O’Sullivan’s) and got going.
And because of that, here’s now a downloadable gpx track of the Ring of Kerry Cycle Route connecting Killarney with Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Portmagee, Valentia Island, Caherciveen, Killorglin and back:
(The heights and distances are – as always with gps logs – not correct.)
So, after having this problem at some point on Ubuntu and Fedora I did some searching and it turns out the solution is quite simple (as always, you just have to find it ;):
I have a SoundBlaster Audigy SE (CA0106). At some point my sound stopped working. There where no error messages, sound controls said all is fine and even the meters showed something when sound was playing … only the boxes didn’t output anything.
Turns out the (/this?) SoundBlaster doesn’t feed anything to the analog output as soon as the digital output is active.
So you just have to fire up alsamixer, select your SoundBlaster (F6 -> CA0106) and mute the S/PDIF channel (select it and press M). And … voilà … you’ll have sound again.
Since Bibble 5 (which I really enjoy using) doesn’t copy the Makerdata-informations from the original RAW into JPEG-files when exporting – which is quite annoying when posting images online – I wrote the a small script for use with the “Open in application” feature in the batch definition.
It uses Phil Harveys exiftool (http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/) and should work in every *nix-environment.
