Reddit: non hierarchical file browser?

Tuesday 27th of January 2015 11:59:45 PM

I have for some time desired to have a file browser that does not display files in their nested fasion. But one that is more friendly to a creative endeavour.

I would like to have a system by which each file in the system would have a meta tag in which an arbitrary number of tags could be listed.

When searching for a file instead of remembering the file path or the file name (in other words you don't have to know what you are looking for) the whole of the file system can be navigated from the inclusion or exclusion of tags.

A brief example would be if I were working on a project and I was starting from theme ie SPACE I could view all content that was related. Images, books, text and pdf documents, videos, browser history pages, and from there I could prune that down. Like eleminate the text items. Or planets or w/e.

Building and managing the tag system would be/is a bear but does a system like this exist? Alternatively where would an ambitious chap start learning about building something like this?

TuxMachines: Can or Can’t?

Tuesday 27th of January 2015 11:48:11 PM

What I love about open source is that it’s a “can” world by default. You can do anything you think needs doing and nobody will tell you that you can’t. (They may not take your patch but they won’t tell you that you can’t create it!)

It’s often easier to define things by what they are not or what we can’t do. And the danger of that is you create a culture of “can’t”. Any one who has raised kids or animals knows this. “No, don’t jump.” You can’t jump on people. “No, off the sofa.” You can’t be on the furniture. “No, don’t lick!” You can’t slobber on me. And hopefully when you realize it, you can fix it. “You can have this stuffed animal (instead of my favorite shoe). Good dog!”

TuxMachines: Open-source development of Pirate Bay replacement could make site immune to police takedown

Tuesday 27th of January 2015 09:42:38 PM

Online torrent repository IsoHunt has launched a $100,000 (£66,000) competition to encourage open-source development of The Old Pirate Bay, the popular torrent site set up in the wake of The Pirate Bay's shutdown.

The unprecedented move to offer prize money will mean that an open-source community will be responsible for developing the site rather than a closed team, therefore making the site more difficult to take down.

Don't Use Ubuntu, Use Mint - or elementary

7 reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn"

When we laid out our featured article on things you need to do after installing Ubuntu 14.10, we shared a few little issues we have had with the latest Ubuntu release. Well things got worse, and I decided to try something else for a change. I've been using elementary OS Freya as my daily driver since then. And I have to say, I'm mighty impressed so far. And the fact that Freya is still very much in beta makes the whole affair all the more interesting. A list of reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 at the moment. Read more
