Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

A small OSX centric app' to help a newborn sleep...

shush.sh

This is a noise generator for newborn babies to listen to sooth them to sleep.
See more about it here:-

White noise machine - Wikipedia

It is invoked as:-
Usage:- [./]shush.sh <time in seconds from 18 to 2700> [sensitivity [Hh|Mm|Ll]]<CR>
'Sensitivity' defaults to [M]edium if omitted.

It has been developed on this MBP, OSX 10.12.2 and works in 'bash', 'dash' and 'sh' modes.

It has been tested on this machine and CygWin(64). As it is OSX centric I have been unable to fully test on Linux. CygWin(64) is SSLLOOWW.

When run it cycles approx 9 second noise bursts until the allocated time is reached, then, it cycles a recording mode to detect if baby is crying or not.
If baby wakes up and starts crying then the recording is read to see if it in the limits of the sensitivity selected.
If it is it then cycles the playback of a different noise sample for the run time bursts allocated.

To quit just press Ctrl-C whilst any noise burst is playing.

There are NO extra dependencies required only a virgin install of Linux, CygWin or OSX is needed.

I won't hold my breathe with the reliability of QuickTime Player as coding for it could be broken by any future OS change, but fingers crossed.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# !/usr/local/bin/dash
# shush.sh
# Usage:- [./]shush.sh <time in seconds from 18 to 2700> [sensitivity [Hh|Mm|Ll]] <CR>
