I wanted to know which access point my RPi is connected to and its IP address, and so i wrote a little clever program that lets me know just that.  This python program looks up its SSID and IP address then sends you message on twitter. You can use crontab to run this program on start up.

Set up start and stop time: Youtube video

How to set up start and stop time for a YouTube Video
Problem: You would like to start and stop at a specific time within a youtube video Solution: We will modify the url to youtube to start and stop youtube video.
Step 1: Grab video url 
-Here is my example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwTXwJg6_VE
Step 2: Modify video url to start and stop time
-From url above we will remove the following: [watch?] & replace [=]   with [/]
-Here is the end result:https://www.youtube.com/v/GwTXwJg6_VE
Step 3: Add your start and end time, but wait it has to be in seconds;
-I want to start the video at 1:07 and end at 4:19 -Lets convert this to seconds:  -Next step maybe elementary math: Warning! -Start time: 1:07 min --> (1 min)*(60 sec) + 7 sec = 67 seconds -End time: 4:19 min --> (4 min)*(60 sec) + 19 sec = 259 second
Step 4: Modify url
-Take the url from step 2--> https://www.youtube.com/v/GwTXwJg6_VE
at the end you will append [?start=67&end=259]
-The result will be https://www.yout…
