Anyone see the lovely new changes to Flickr? 

It looks as though MM got a look at Windoze8 and loved it so much she had to have her very own site that looked just like it.

Yahoo! now owns both Flickr and Tumblr. They ought to call up Pat Sajak and buy the missing vowels.

He already sold all his vowels to the parent company, that's why there are none left for them.

https links do not work with the text client and the "U" option.
I figured IE would be a squirt or nerf gun.

Every room is the bash facebook room right?
Remember that idea that facebook was created by the goberment to get information on people and get people to
give up their personal information willingly?

G+ is more than just "Google employees."  People who don't "get" G+ or who think it's a wasteland are just those who expect it to behave like Facebook.  Seriously?  Who wants another Facebook?  One is already too many.

Subject: Wanted: Open Source Cloud

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

Three of my clients have been asking me for a while now, if it was possible to "give some people access to the local nas", via their dsl.

I think that is beyond stupid for several reasons, so I try to propose a dedicated server with some open source cloud software, hence I am asking for your advice.

  • The clients all know each other, they have their offices in the same building, they already share printers and meeting rooms.
  • All of them need to share stuff for inhouse employees who work on building sites, etc.
  • All of them need to share lots of 50-100mb pdfs with sub contractors. (They are architects and need to share building plans)
  • Some of them need to share stuff with partner companies.
  • Most of the files are project related.

The software should be easy to use and one of their more tech savvy employees should be able to operate it, set permissions, create project based shares, etc. It should be a bit like dropbox, some things should be accessible without authorization, some things should be locked by passwords.

Any thoughts or hints?

As you are probably expecting the next 100 answers to be "OwnCloud" please identify why that's not a solution?

Just wanted to know if there were any alternatives to check out, wether I should have a look into OpenNebula or OpenStack or some such thing.

Or if anyone could tell me about hosted solutions. OwnCloud is high up on the list, since there are apps for every major mobile OS.

At my previous job, we used Google extensively.

They provide storage, email, a very nice way to collaberate on writing documents that can be turned into PDFs, and so on. You can choose to share what you want from the storage.

But it isn't open-source. Well, their APIs are open source, but their technology itself isn't. If you can't get to the internet, you can't use them. But if you're talking about cloud solutions, you're already going to need constant access to the internet, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Stuck on a moronic phone call and looking for something to keep me awake, I just perused the entirety of this blog:

http://usedtobeapizzahut.blogspot.com/

A lovely and scenic tour of establishments in buildings that used to be Pizza Huts. The iconic roof humps and trapezoidal windows truly are magnificent accomplishments of architecture.

Ugh, my stomach does not agree with that kind of architecture. Luckily, we have enough "real deal" italians all over the country so we are spared by the Hut.

I saw that site, it reminded me of how several Red Barn restaurants were changed into Adult World.

Combine the two and have an adult pizza shop!

Would an adult pizza shop be a pizza place where they served stuff other than plain and pepperoni?

They specialize in hot sausage, of course.
