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

Trust is still a major issue for many IT pros when it comes to the cloud, but by holding back, you could be hurting your company in the name of protecting it.

Subject: OpenStreetMap study shows around 192,000 active users

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

Fewer than half of all registered OpenStreetMap (OSM) users have contributed to the open source project's mapping data according to a new study by researchers at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. Of the mapping platform's 500,000 registered members, approximately 38% had contributed data at least once. The study, which examined activity of registered OSM users up to December 2011, found that more than 24,000 users (about 5% of the total) had contributed at least 1,000 edited nodes.

Subject: Look what Stella brought to CentOS 6.3

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

If you are familiar with CentOS, you know that out of the box, it is not really designed as a desktop distribution. Stella changes all that, as it is primarily aimed at desktop users, while retaining the core enterprise features and capabilities of CentOS.

July has turned out to be a pretty packed month. The Community Edition has been extremely well received in the community. Developers have already created some very interesting modifications to LunaSysMgr that have enhanced the user experience on TouchPads. We also officially announced the release of Enyo 2.0 at OSCON and have been picked up by xTuple to be their front end framework. The Developer relations team attended Open Web Camp in San Jose, Throne of JS in Toronto and GothamJS in NY. Head on over to our developer blog to read more about these events.

Subject: How to fix your discrete GPU temperatures

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

During summer sessions, computer hardware is getting seriously hot and needs our attention. The most common problem causing artefacts into your screen is due to overheated graphics cards. Either passive (without fan) or active (with fan) cooling, the optimum results stem from the best fit between your GPU processor’s surface and its heatsink. Thus many heatsinks are nickel-plated with a copper base block, or fully copper-plated if you pay some extra money.

Subject: Compare two images easily with Geeqie

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

In my entomological work I often need to compare two images of bugs side-by-side. Comparisons are surprisingly hard to do with either of the image viewers I normally use, namely Eye of Gnome and Ristretto. First I open two instances of the viewer and adjust their window sizes and positions for easy side-by-side comparison. I then open one image in one viewer window, and the other image in the other window. If I want to zoom in or out, or pan across the images, I have to do this independently in each viewer window. If I don't save this two-instance arrangement on a dedicated workspace using 'Save session on exit', I'll have to repeat the setting-up next time.

Subject: Understanding the SysRq Key – The Magic Key To Control Linux

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

Linux do(es) crash. It is not so frequent, but it happens. You know what to do when an application refuses to obey, but if everything fails, the last solution is using the supreme power on Linux: the magic SysRq key. By using this key with a combination of “Alt” and another letter, you will be able to make your computer respond no matter what. It was already evoked, but a little explanation does not hurt, and the more you know, the more prepared you will be when facing a real problem. Also, understanding the individual effect is always better than just repeating a combo learned by heart.
