Proofreading for illusions with grep and AWK

Saturday 18th of June 2016 01:25:21 PM
Lexical illusions are very hard to find when proofreading. The most common lexical illusion is a duplicated word, as in this well-known example: "A lexical illusion: many people are not aware that the the brain will automatically ignore a second instance of the word 'the' when it starts a new line." But if you let grep and AWK do the proofreading — problem solved!

5 reasons why VirtualBox has a place in the data center

Friday 17th of June 2016 11:58:45 AM
When you consider virtualization platforms, two probably come to mind: VMware and Hyper-V. There's a good reason why — both platforms are excellent. VMware vSphere ESXi and Hyper-V are type-1 (or bare-metal) hypervisors, meaning they don't require a standard operating system to run on. These platforms are great for large-scale virtualization where you want to dedicate all system resources to the virtual machines.

  • AMD RX 480 released, AMD will possibly open up Radeon Software
    The next generation of AMD GPU's have launched, and it begins with the AMD RX 480. Benchmarks are now out there along with plenty of info.

  • Fedora 24 upgrade
    Fedora 24 was released last week, so of course I had to upgrade my machines. As has become the norm, there weren’t any serious issues, but I hit a few annoyances this time around. The first was due to packages in the RPMFusion repos not being signed. This isn’t Fedora’s fault, as RPMFusion is a completely separate project. And it was temporary: by the time I upgraded my laptop on Sunday night, the packages had all been signed.
  • Fedora Flock 2016
    I’ve been working on a shirt design for this year’s Fedora Flock in Krakow, Poland and figured that I’d share what I’ve put together! I’m also including some of my earlier attempts at the design as well to show my thought process as well. Ps. for those who may not be familiar with landmarks and iconic images of Krakow (and yes, I too am one of you too… much research was needed!) here’s a list of some of the imagery that I tied to incorporate in the designs.
  • A F24 user story
    Honestly, nothing from the features in the announcement of the Fedora 24 release didn't manage to excite me intro upgrading my desktop from an old, out-of-support Fedora. It's main task is to edit digital photography and for some years a Linux solution is decent at it.
