How to use PuTTY with github on Windows

How to use PuTTY with github on Windows

To make things easier, we can tell git to use the PuTTY tools rather than the built in ssh client. The PuTTY tools include an identity manager and an SSH replacement.

Follow these four steps:

  1. Download and install PuTTY using the MSI installer package from the PuTTY download page. Alternately, you can just get the "PLink" and "Pageant" executables from the same page and save them somewhere in your path.

  2. Add a new user or system environment variable:

  • Press Windows+R and enter sysdm.cpl


Converting Audio into Different Formats / Sample Rates

Minimal example: transcode from MP3 to WMA:
ffmpeg -i input.mp3 output.wma

You can get the list of supported formats with:
ffmpeg -formats

Convert WAV to MP3, mix down to mono (use 1 audio channel), set bit rate to 64 kbps and sample rate to 22050 Hz:

Create an orphan branch in a repo.
cd repository
git checkout --orphan orphan_name
git rm -rf .
rm '.gitignore'
echo "#Title of Readme" >
git add
git commit -a -m "Initial Commit"
git push origin orphan_name
You can’t perform that action at this time.
