3 Non-Linux sites I like

Filed under
Just talk

- I like to pull in this site because it gives a good rundown of some of the world's most interesting events, such as natural disasters and major political happenings. It's like Headline news. An overview of the world. Most of the time I just read the headlines in my newsreader, but sometimes I want the details.

- Probably self-explanatory, but they publish a daily picture of penguins at Antarctica. And they let the picture come in through the feed, so that's even cooler. Nothing like pictures of cute penguins. There are other sites that show a daily pic of penguins, but they don't show the pic in the feed.

- I like this site because he features news that funny, odd, and sometimes shocking. Kinda like the old Reuter's Oddnews (or whatever it was called), but ...well, uncensored. He lets some posts come through the reader and some others you have to go to the site. But most crack me up. And sometimes the comments are worth the trip.

Slackware Live Edition – on its way to 1.0?

Last week the second Beta of the upcoming Slackware 14.2 was released. My goal was to have a new Beta of my liveslak ready by that time, so that I could provide new ISO images to test the Slackware Beta2 on a live medium. Unfortunately, there was an attack of the flu in my team at work and things got a bit busier than usual. There was a plus side to this: some last moment bug fixes which could be applied to my scripts – the result of having more evenings available to test. Therefore the new release is not labeled “0.5.0” but “0.5.1” Read more
