Downgrading PulseAudio with downgrade.sh

Just upgraded PulseAudio from 9.0-1 => 10.0-2, which was no good, as I was left with no sound.

The bash script downgrade.sh given in Github saved the day. Sound is back. The script is for Arch Linux.

Usage:

downgrade.sh libpulse pulseaudio pulseaudio-bluetooth

From now on I have to use

pacman -Syu --ignore pulseaudio --ignore libpulse --ignore pulseaudio-bluetooth

to not lose the good version and getting the infected version again.

Victoria Kaspi Public Lecture: The Cosmic Gift of Neutron Stars

A very fine introduction by Prof. Dr. Victoria Kaspi to neutron stars, pulsars, magnetars, binary pulsars. Explaining their use in test for general relativity, and detection of gravitational waves.

She also mentions Einstein@Home.

Homepage of Prof. Kaspi is here. A recent (6-Jan-2017) observation by Prof. Kaspi was given by NASA. She was a pupil and Ph.D. candidate under Joseph Taylor (K1JT).
