[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Nokia took an axe to much of its non-Windows software capacity today, leaving all but a core team working on S40, company insiders say. Among the 10,000 casualties officially announced are teams working on Meltemi, Qt and QML. The team imported via the Smarterphone acquisition will work on S40, we understand.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Gwenview is the default image viewer for the KDE desktop. Out of the box it's good looking but nothing obviously exceptional. Except for two things: Phonon and plugins. That combination really does make Gwenview a pretty useful bit of kit. Let's see what it can do.

Subject: What are MySQL Temporary Tables?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I originally planned on writing an article over Common Table Expressions (CTEs) but since MySQL does not currently support CTEs, and there has been much debate as to why they should implement it, I decided not to write an article about it. MySQLs answer to CTEs is Temporary Tables. A temporary table is a base table that is not stored in the databse, but instead exists only while the database session in which it was created is active. In this article we will look further at what a Temporary Table is, how to use them and when it is appropriate to use them.

"The world of IT is a better place when developers respect users instead of trying to enslave them," said blogger Robert Pogson. "We need new user interfaces for new gadgets with tiny screens and no keyboards and no mice, but there's absolutely no reason to radically change a user interface that has been used satisfactorily for decades."

Subject: Linux games: Lone Survivor

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I’ve discovered this Indie game thanks to Humble Indie Bundle Number 5, buying it I’ve got this one as Bonus game, and I must say that it’s been a great, and positive surprise. Lone Survivor is a psychological survival adventure, with art, design, and music by the one-man studio, Superflat Games. The surgical-mask wearing protagonist has survived a disaster and must now face the world’s twisted creatures, as well as the potential unraveling of his own mind.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The open source cloud made waves in the news this week with the results of a RightScale study that claims widespread adoption among enterprises of open source cloud computing services. VMWare and IBM showed their agreement by announcing plans to expand their open source cloud investments. These positive stories offset the shocker that NASA has abandoned OpenStack entirely for Amazon Web Services.

Subject: TTYtter – Tweet via The Command Line Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

When it comes to Twitter, there are three ways to use it: the web interface, a desktop/mobile client, or tweet from the command line (for the real Indiana Jones). The last way, despite its apparent complexity, can become very useful for people who want to reach a higher level of control over their favorite micro-blogging system. If you want to use some scripts, send your tweets automatically, or just get rid of the graphical application, TTYtter is an excellent program to start with.
