The LibreOffice suite of tools includes a very powerful database application ─ one that happens to be incredibly user-friendly. These databases can be managed/edited by any user and data can be entered by anyone using a LibreOffice-generated form. These forms are very simple to create and can be attached to existing databases or you can create both a database and a form in one fell swoop.
There are two ways to create LibreOffice Base forms:
There are many memorable quotes attributed to Tim O’Reilly. Which isn’t surprising. He’s been talking for decades about open data, the internet and the direction technology is taking us. Like Arthur C Clarke, much of what he’s predicted, talked about and written has proven incredibly judicious. He popularised the ideas behind ‘Web 2.0’, as well as the incoming wave and impact of social media. He believes in an open government and that the internet will become a global brain of networks and things.
I wrote a post last summer about preventing Chrome from stealing the media buttons (like play, pause, previous track and next track) from OS X. Now that I’m using Linux regularly and I fell in love with Google Play Music All Access, I found that GNOME was stealing the media keys from Chrome.
The fix is quite simple. Press the SUPER key (Windows key or Mac Command key), type settings, and press enter. Click on Keyboard and then on the Shortcuts tab. You should now see something like this.
Well, to jump from your current CMS (or lack thereof) and make the transition to Drupal, you want to know much it costs and exacting what that migration entails. First, there are several factors that have to be taken into an account before any Drupal development company can give you a quote. But, while there isn’t an exact price range for migrating to Drupal, you can do some in-house work to keep your migration costs down and prepare your team for the migration, keeping headaches down too.
Well, this is starting to look sort of like "Jamie's Mostly Raspberry Pi Stuff", but that's not intentional, there's just a lot of interesting things going on with the RPi at the moment, so that's where I seem to be spending a lot of my time right now.
The big news, of course, was the announcement and immediate availability of the Raspberry Pi 2 hardware two weeks ago. The new hardware needs updated software to really make the most of its capabilities, so there was also a new Raspbian and NOOBS release (1.3.12) made at the same time.
Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH proudly announced on February 19, 2015, the immediate availability of version 3.4 of its powerful, open-source, and reliable server virtualization management computer operating system, Proxmox Virtual Environment (VE). The release brings a number of new features and improvements, including NUMA support (non-uniform memory access), ZFS storage plug-in, hotplug support, as well as the latest and greatest ZFS file system.
We’ve reported the other day that the GNOME development team is working hard these days on the forthcoming GNOME 3.16 desktop environment, due for release on March 25, 2015. This will be a major update to the controversial desktop, bringing a number of new features, updated components, as well a bugfixes. GNOME Photos will be part of GNOME 3.16 as the default application for viewing and organizing photos, with the ability to upload them to social networks.
In this post, we have introduced the FrameGraph and the node types that compose it. We then went on to discuss a few examples to illustrate the Framegraph building rules and how the Qt3D engine uses the Framegraph behind the scenes. By now you should have a pretty good overview of the FrameGraph and how it can be used (perhaps to add an early z-fill pass to a forward renderer). Also you should always keep in mind that the FrameGraph is a tool for you to use so that you are not tied down to the provided renderer and materials that Qt3D provides out of the box.
Canonical, through Adam Conrad, announced a few hours ago, February 20, the immediate availability of the Ubuntu 14.04.2 maintenance release for its current LTS (Long Term Support) operating system, the Trusty Tahr, which includes Xubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Kubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.2 LTS, Edubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Mythbuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu Studio 14.04.2 LTS, and Lubuntu 14.04.2 LTS.
Chris Mason has sent in his pull request of the Btrfs file-system changes for the Linux 3.20 (4.0?) kernel.
Btrfs in Linux 3.19 brought RAID 5 / 6 support improvements and for this next kernel release the RAID level 5 and 6 support is still baking. Chris shared that there's some RAID 5/6 clean-ups to fix some long-standing issues in the code and to improve the work on top of Linux 3.19.
