Subject: Ubuntu 12.10 Adds an Option to Disable Amazon Search Results

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

Ubuntu 12.10 includes a new shopping lens that shows Amazon search results in dash. These results are related to the query you typed in dash while searching for applications, files or other stuff. If a user clicks on these results and makes a purchase from Amazon, Ubuntu gets affiliate revenue which is invested back into Ubuntu development.

The list announcement describes this new file-system as "a new file system carefully designed for the NAND flash memory-based storage devices. We chose a log structure file system approach, but we tried to adapt it to the new form of storage.

Subject: The PyBlosxom blogging software isn't dead, but it's not terribly alive either, plus why I use Ode as my flat-file blogging system of choice

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

PyBlosxom, a very worthy project that took the Perl-based Blosxom and re-did it in Python, has been slow, development-wise, for a long time now. In recent months the project was near death, but a new maintainer is at least watching over what's left. Not that Blosxom is an active, living project, because it isn't.

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

If you've ever been frustrated by the inaccuracy of a television weather report, in particular the graphics, there's always been a way out -- you could go to the National Weather Service website and look at the online radar images pulled straight off the actual radar. If you're fishing, hiking or working outdoors, though, you'll find the graphics don't render all that well on mobile devices.

Subject: Early Inventor Of Streaming Video Wants To Help Fight Off Video Streaming Patent Trolls

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

Of course, patent system apologists will point out that he never patented his own work, and Mattheij answers that the same way many developers I know have answered various patent questions, by noting that what they did was nothing special, and the idea that it deserves patent protection is ridiculous. "I’ve never harped on public recognition for coming up with a way to stream live video to the browser (as far as I know it’s not mentioned in places like wikipedia) because as far as I’m concerned it was a rather trivial affair software wise. Some of the stuff I have built was several orders of magnitude more work and vastly more complex than this. To register a patent for something like that to me is abuse of the patent system. There is no substantial research to invest in, it is just basic plumbing, a re-use or composition if you want of existing elements in a new but obvious form. So, in order to frustrate any further attempts at shake-down of hardworking people by parasitic patent trolls I hereby stake a public claim on the creation of the first streaming webcam software, in March of 1995, to the claim of having the first combination of streaming video and credit card payments for pay-per-view and subscription based access in May of 1995 for a customer that became very well known with the product, and for plug-in free streaming video and audio combined in July of 1996. And I’m willing to stand by that claim and defend it with documentation if challenged."

Subject: An Easy Way To Try Out FreeBSD 10

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

If you have been wanting to try out the FreeBSD 10-CURRENT operating system that's presently under development, there's now an easier way. Rather than needing to install a current FreeBSD release and then upgrade to the "-CURRENT" packages from there, a FreeBSD developer has finally started offering snapshot images of the FreeBSD 10-CURRENT and 9-STABLE versions. Yes, finally ISO snapshots to make it easier to try out the current development state from a clean install.

Hi all, in this post we will create a very basic note taking app. It will store only single note and retrieve it back. In later post we will keep extending it until it become a fully working app. So bear with it as the attempt is to learn android programming not anything else.

Subject: Trying Out The Nouveau Driver Rewrite

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

While Linux 3.7-rc1 hasn't even been released yet as the merge window is still open, the Linux 3.7 kernel is exciting and users of the open-source Nouveau driver will be greeted by the Nouveau DRM driver rewrite / code restructuring. Due to the invasive Nouveau work, some early Nouveau tests under the Linux 3.7 kernel were carried out. The 3.7 results were then compared to the earlier Linux 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6 kernel releases.
