ostatic.com: It's often difficult to notice when you're in the midst of making history.

Little did I know that their efforts would become known as the world's largest open source development site.

penguinpetes.com: We won't go into what exactly makes one a geek here (hint: it has something to do with knowledge, learning, books, skills, and technology, but not fandom). If you are it, you know it. And if you're looking for it, you know it. So here's some pointers to places where the original geek culture is still alive.

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

Leftovers: KDE

  • Cantor migrating to Phabricator: which tools our contributors must to use
    Projects and software developed by KDE community are going to migrate for a new tool to manage our code, commits, reviews, tasks, and more. This tool is Phabricator and you can visit the instance for KDE projects in this address. Since November 2015 we are migrating Cantor to Phabricator. After our first successful review code some days ago, I decided to write a post about which tools our contributors must to use while the migration process is not finished.
  • Kdenlive's sprint report
    Last week-end, Vincent and me met in Lausanne for a Kdenlive sprint. One of our goal was to merge Gurjot Singh Bhatti's GSoC work on curves for keyframes. This was more work than expected and we spent many hours trying fix the curves and make keyframes behave correctly. Not much time was left for sleep, but we still managed to get outside to make a group (!) picture in the woods above Lausanne.
  • Jekyll 3.x
    I’ve found three different types of transition issues (it is cool to look at these in a project I do not upgrade on a daily basis like Plasma and the rest of the KDE software).
  • kdev-python on Windows: try it!
    I spent the last two or three days playing around with KDE on Windows, with the aim of getting my Python language plugin for KDevelop to run there. In the end, it wasn’t that hard to get this to work — not as hard as I would have expected it to be, anyways.
