Using the iPod shuffle (v2) with Linux
The iPod shuffle (v2).
I received an iPod shuffle for my birthday this year. This is a nice piece of
hardware. Its main characteristics that make it attractive are its very small
size and weight, and its ability to play AAC (LP), which sounds way better

All my computers at home run debian Linux, from my old indigo2 to the pc I
am using to write this site. I immediately started to look for informations
about using the iPod shuffle with Linux.
After some surfing, it was clear I needed a solution tailored to my precise
needs: complete automation. This is how I started writing pieces of scripts
for all tasks like encoding to aac, chosing music files randomly, etc...
After a while it became an evidence I had to gather all pieces into a single
tool. This is how fysh was born.
The script: fysh
fysh is a small perl script I wrote to handle all the tasks associated
with my iPod shuffle. It does now have its page on its own
