Reddit: What's consuming my bandwidth?

Friday 23rd of September 2016 07:15:46 PM

Does anyone know a console program that could tell me what service/process is consuming my bandwidth over a certain period, for example, a day? All the monitoring/statistical programs I've come across can do real-time monitoring of your bandwidth (i.e. speed in/out at the moment) but they can't tell me that nginx has used x GB in the last 24 hours.

Phoronix: NVIDIA's Proposal For A New API Better Than GBM Has Already Made Some Progress

Friday 23rd of September 2016 06:26:39 PM
On the first day of the XDC2016 conference this week in Finland NVIDIA presented over their GBM vs. EGLStreams debate that's been ongoing for months with NVIDIA's lack of GBM API support by their driver being what's preventing the binary blob from working with current-generation Wayland compositors. In that session they called for a new community-driven API to suit the needs of device memory / surface allocation and could succeed the Generic Buffer Manager. By the end of XDC2016, some progress has already been made...

Reddit: Forum software for small group?

Friday 23rd of September 2016 04:46:23 PM

I play in a band of four, and we write our own songs collaboratively. We all have different schedules, so keeping in collaboration throughout the week, or even scheduling times to get together, can be tough. We have been doing this via texting, but it is a mess. I think that having a centralized point for online discussion and collaboration throughout the week would be helpful in making our playing time in person more productive, as well as making scheduling playing times easier on everyone.

A typical week might go like this (using pseudonyms here). Jane has a verse for song but is having trouble coming up with a chorus. She sends out a text with an mp3 attached to see if someone else might have a good idea where to go with it. John has an idea for a chorus, and he sends it back to Jane. Jane likes the idea, but makes some small changes, sending it back to John. Paul, being on a different schedule, checks his messages and also has an idea for the chorus, sending it back to Jane. Jane likes it over John's idea, but she has already invested time into John's idea and replied to John about keeping it. Ringo gets a message of one of the song versions and writes some drum parts for it. Ringo messages Paul saying that he has a work function to attend and needs to reschedule playing time. Paul thinks that Ringo must have messaged the others about rescheduling, so he doesn't inform the other two members. Jane's phone is momentarily dead, so when she finds out about the reschedule, it is too late. When the group finally gets together, Jane has reworked the song the night before with a completely different chorus, and the band spends time forgetting whatever version each member might have already invested time into, learning the new version.

So I'm considering setting up an old pc for centralized discussion and collaboration for the band. Using a forum immediately came to mind, but maybe there is something better suited for a small group. The requirements would be, good formatting for mobile access, ease of use for the other members, file attachments, and sms notification of new posts. Ideally, sms notifications of new posts would only be sent out to a member when that member is not logged in and active, but this is pretty minor.

Reddit: Seagate NAS OS 3.x AZERTY Keyboard mode...

Friday 23rd of September 2016 04:31:30 PM

Hey guys, We've been trying to figure this out for the past couple of days and seagate has been absolutely no help on the issue. We need to change the keyboard layout on the server itself so that when we arent SSH'd into the server, we can type without a print out of a AZERTY keyboard...

I found under /usr/shares/kmap/ there is a fr.kmap file, but that is the only one that I see under there. Is there somewhere we can get a qwerty kmap file that we can dump in there so we can load a different layout and not want to pull our hair out when we have to log into the server directly?
Thanks, SilverSix311

Android Leftovers

A short critique of Stallmanism

I like Stallman and tend to agree with him often: regarding software, or other politics. This article tries to constructively criticize some parts of the free software movement's ideology, which I collectively refer to as "Stallmanism" (only as pun). It is not an attempt at a personal attack on Stallman, and by reading further you will probably see my politics are very far from that: I coined the term Stallmanism simply because he is at the center of the movement and himself a primary source of the ideas I am critiquing.

Google may unveil merged Android and Chrome OS, dubbed Andromeda, at event

If you thought Google’s October 4 event — where the firm is rumored to launch two smartphones, Google Home, Daydream VR, Chromecast Ultra, and Wi-Fi Routers — wasn’t packed enough, think again. It has been a long time coming, but Google may finally offer a peak at Andromeda, an operating system that sees the merger of Android and Chrome OS. Andromeda is the code name for the long-rumored merger, and Android Police says it have been sitting on a rumor that Google may demo the OS in October. What made the company share it now? A tweet from Hiroshi Lockheimer, senior vice president of Android, Chrome OS, and Google Play at Google. Read more
