If you need to shorten the long periods of silence in an audio file automatically, you can use “sox”, the swiss army knife of audio stuff.
sox input.wav output.wav silence -l 1 0.1 1% -1 2.0 1% \
&& ffmpeg -i output.wav -codec:a libmp3lame -qscale:a 2 output.mp3

On 25th May, after 2 years of hard work from the historical fork announce, Devuan Jessie stable has been released! This is a long term support release so it will be maintained until 2020.
This blog was running on Debian Wheezy until now, but this is the time to upgrade to Devuan!
We want linux FREE, simple, and stupid! Now Devuan is the new GNU+Linux universal distribution as Debian was infected by systemd.
