My name is Jordi Carrillo and I come from Barcelona, Catalonia, although now I’m living and working in Los Angeles, California. I’m a heavy user of Linux, mostly Debian Sid/Ubuntu Linux distro and Fedora. In this page I’m going to talk about myself, my projects and my Linux experiences.

    Hi Jordi,

    I’m the owner of rsync.net – an offsite data storage / offsite backup
    provider. We’ve been in business for a while now, and have repeatedly
    sent customers to your rsync HOWTO at wordpress.

    One goal I have had with this company is to give back to the open source
    and free software community. With that in mind, we created a 50% discount
    plan, and extended it to all .edu and open source contributors:


    As we regularly use your document, we thought it made sense to offer the
    discount to you. If our product is something you can use, please use that
    alternate form to sign up.

    If not, please keep us in mind in the future – I think you will find our
    business philosophy:


    and especially our Warrant Canary:


    very refreshing. Thanks again for the writing you do and the
    documentation you have made available.

    John Kozubik
    rsync.net, Inc.

    Thank you for the useful and concise howto http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=224748 explaining how to capture sound with ALSA. I was surprised, it couldn’t really be any easier! : )

    You do good work; thanks for contributing to the Online Open source Community.

    Jordi he llegit els teus posts al web d’ubuntu i crec que t’agradaria saber que fa poc s’ha format un LoCo (local comunity) team català dins la comunitat ubuntu.

    Pots veure’ns a https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CatalanTeam

    Quants més siguem més ens divertirem !!

  5. Thanks for your help (2007) on alsa and friends. I will be back to check around your interesting site.

    Hi Jordi,

    Found your page on arecord and I have a question. I want to record a week’s worth of atmospheric sound. I have a 2 TB external hard drive where I want to store the recordings. I’m a beginner with Linux so I hope I can explain this correctly. I’ve installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Windows 7 computer and mounted the external hdd successfully when running on Ubuntu. For taking the recordings I’m using a script that uses the arecord function. However, even after copying the script onto the external hdd and running it from there, I can’t get it to store data in the external hdd itself. All the recordings get stored in the home folder instead. Would you know why this is happening? How can I store the recordings on the external hdd? Is there a path I need to specify on the script?
