F*cking programming

Filed under
Humor

codeulate.com: Yesterday I stumbled onto a delightful tool from Google Labs: Code Search. Turns out Google is now crawling through source code. Granted access to billions of lines of code and the awesome power of Google’s search technology, I did what any rational, thinking programmer would do: I typed in some profanity and hit enter.

The Case of Ultumix or How NOT to Remaster PCLinuxOS

Filed under
PCLOS

opensourcelearning.info: One of the core principles of open source development is “freedom”. As such, there are few limitations for developers and end users to take the work of others and move it into a direction they deem better. This has led to a proliferation of Linux distributions, remasters and scores of applications that sometimes are hard to distinguish from other distributions, remasters or applications.

Larry Dignan: When former Delta Airlines chief operating officer James Whitehurst takes over as CEO of Red Hat on New Year’s Day he’ll face the worst kind of doubters–the quiet ones. But Whitehurst could very well take Red Hat to the next level.

My (daughter’s) OLPC laptop has arrived

Filed under
OLPC

blogs.zdnet: My–actually my daughter’s–XO laptop from the One Laptop Per Child Project has arrived and a few things were striking: Its size (built for kids), the software interface, which is very intuitive, and the realization that this tool is designed for children–not adults. In other words, dad needs to step aside and see how the XO does with the kids.

Review: The Linux Powered Sandisk Sansa Connect PMP

Filed under
Hardware

Raiden's Realm: The Sandisk "Sansa Connect" MP3 player is more than just your typical mobile music player. It's a complete multimedia experience the likes of which I haven't seen in a while. While some would say that it won't beat Apple's iPod, I really beg to differ.

Pardus 2007.3: the same ol' Windows mocker

Filed under
Linux

beranger: I considered Pardus to be a very promising distro, but then I noticed how they screwed up the whole security concept. Even the most recent three reviews (on Linux.com, by Susan Linton; on LinuxPlanet, by Dan Lynch; on Raiden.net, by Steve Lake) fail to discuss anything security-related. OK, so I thought I should check myself what's the deal with Pardus 2007.3.

Matthew Szulik resigns as Red Hat CEO, is replaced by an airline COO

Filed under
Linux

Matt Asay: Wow. If there was ever an industry that has little to nothing to teach the software industry, it's the airline industry. And yet that is precisely what Red Hat has done: Matthew Szulik, its long-time CEO, has resigned to be replaced by Jim Whitehurst, former COO of Delta Airlines, the paragon of disruptive and agile thinking.

96Boards SBC showcases Mediatek’s deca-core Helio X20

MediaTek launched the fastest open-spec SBC to date with a 96Boards development board that runs Android on its deca-core Cortex-A53 and -A72 Helio X20 SoC. The “Helio X20 Development Board” is MediaTek’s first 96Boards form-factor single-board computer, and the most powerful open-spec hacker SBC to date. Although we’ve seen some fast 64-bit SoCs among 96Boards SBCs, such as the HiKey, based on an octa-core, Cortex-A53 HiSilicon Kirin 6220, the Helio X20 Development Board offers an even more powerful Helio X20 system-on-chip processor.

  • LibreOffice 5.1.4 Released with Over 130 Fixes
    The first release candidate represented 123 fixes. Some include a fix for a crash in Impress when setting a background image. This occurred with several popular formats in Windows and Linux. Caolán McNamara submitted the patches to fix this in the 5.1 and 5.2 branches. David Tardon fixed a bug where certain presentations hung Impress for extended periods to indefinitely by checking for preconditions earlier. Laurent Balland-Poirier submitted the patches to fix a user-defined cell misinterpretation when using semicolon inside quotes.
  • Open source. Open science. Open Ocean. Oceanography for Everyone and the OpenCTD
    Nearly four years ago, Kersey Sturdivant and I launched a bold, ambitious, and, frankly, naive crowdfunding initiative to build the first low-cost, open-source CTD, a core scientific instrument that measures salinity, temperature, and depth in a water column. It was a dream born from the frustration of declining science funding, the expense of scientific equipment, and the promise of the Maker movement. After thousands of hours spent learning the skills necessary to build these devices, hundreds of conversations with experts, collaborators, and potential users around the world, dozens of iterations (some transformed into full prototypes, others that exist solely as software), and one research cruise on Lake Superior to test the housing and depth and temperature probes, the OpenCTD has arrived.
