Glxgears is a very simple benchmarking tool for your graphics card.
Running glxgears with no vsync (vertical synchronization) is a great simple way to do a very simple benchmark of your graphical situation when you are testing out drivers on your linux system.
You just run the command: vblank_mode=0 glxgears
Easy way to see current graphics driver in use in Xorg: egrep -i " connected|card detect|primary dev|Setting driver" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Appending MOV files efficiently can be a challenge. The only "safe" and easy way without destroying the video or the sound is done by using Avidemux which is a free video editing tool for Linux.
Here is my modified image-convert bash script used for the appending all .MOV files in a folder and have the full video ready for editing in the Avidemux graphical user interface (GUI).
