Fragmentation is not killing Linux  View Printable Version 
Monday, March 25 2013 @ 09:05 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

LinuxThere are thousands of charities. Aids Research, Cancer Research, the British Heart Foundation. This fragmentation is killing our chances of actually curing Cancer. If you funnel all the money from Aids prevention, Comic Relief, Leukaemia and so forth there is no doubt in my mind we’d have cured Cancer by now. If we coerce the scientists working on making Shampoo into curing Cancer we’d have an even better shot. We might even save more lives in the long run. Don’t question how useful Shampoo scientists are to curing Cancer, just accept they are scientists and trust me.

A fresh new KMix  View Printable Version 
Friday, March 22 2013 @ 08:01 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEKMix is KDE’s forgotten redheaded stepchild.

It is old, has been maintained my Christian Esken since early 2001, and has grown organically. Through no fault of Christian’s or anyone else’s, it is buggy, messy, and nobody else wants to help fix it, or at least has the constitution to do so.

First 5 Minutes Troubleshooting A Server  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 12 2013 @ 04:51 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoBack when our team was dealing with operations, optimization and scalability at our previous company, we had our fair share of troubleshooting poorly performing applications and infrastructures of various sizes, often large (think CNN or the World Bank). Tight deadlines, “exotic” technical stacks and lack of information usually made for memorable experiences.

The cause of the issues was rarely obvious: here are a few things we usually got started with.

GlusterFS: First impressions  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 05 2013 @ 05:45 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsGlusterFS is a distributed file system which is supposed to scale to large storage sizes. Besides file distribution it also offers “RAID” like features: if you have two GlusterFS servers you can either stripe the data on both of them, or mirror them. Or, if you got more servers, you can even create more complex setups with a mixture of striping and mirroring. The client protocol is very similar to NFS, and thus clients can GlusterFS servers via GlusterFS-Fuse or directly via NFS.

A month with Dell's Project Sputnik  View Printable Version 
Thursday, February 28 2013 @ 04:51 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HardwareI ordered the new Project Sputnik laptop from Dell to replace my six-year-old MacBook. It’s basically the most-tricked-out version of the XPS 13, running Ubuntu 12.04 instead of Windows 8. I won’t get into why I dislike Apple’s OS, but I run Linux on my desktop and on any server machine I login to, and I enjoy a consistent experience. The most appealing part about Project Sputnik, as opposed to installing Linux on any ol’ Windows laptop (or a MacBook, for that matter), is that it includes a Dell-managed PPA for the hardware. In theory, this means that Dell is committed to making sure that the laptop’s hardware “just works”.

Vim After 11 Years  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, February 20 2013 @ 09:19 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsAt some point over a decade ago I received my first real Unix account on Northeastern CCS’s computing infrastructure. I realized that my primary method of development — editing files in BBEdit and uploading them via FTP — wouldn’t scale for college-level projects, so I decided to learn how to efficiently edit files on a remote host. I used Pico for a while but became annoyed at its lack of syntax highlighting, so I used the only other editor I remembered bumping into: Vim.

What you can learn from the monster LibreOffice project  View Printable Version 
Saturday, February 16 2013 @ 08:04 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsA large legacy code base is a challenge for any team to embrace and improve. So how well does a distributed team of volunteers address the problem?

A talk at FOSDEM shed light on how the large and diverse team assembled by The Document Foundation (TDF) is approaching the huge LibreOffice code base left in the wake of Oracle's withdrawal from OpenOffice.org. The result is not only an impressive sequence of on-time releases, but also a range of development innovation. In particular, the "bi-bisect" technique they've developed could be a great approach for others faced with large, complex code bases.

Hairy Tales to be ported to Linux if enough interest is shown  View Printable Version 
Sunday, February 03 2013 @ 04:17 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesHairy Tales, the first game fully developed by Arges studio, is an Action/Puzzler built with Unity3D. It is already available for Win/Mac on Desura.

After many requests on Steam Greenlight for a Linux port the developers replied that it's all a matter of upgrading the game engine to version 4, but they are not sure if it's worth the cost.

What Is BlackBerry-Py?  View Printable Version 
Monday, January 28 2013 @ 11:08 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThis project is focused on building up an environment to let anyone write Python apps for the PlayBook and BB10 devices. As of PlayBook OS 2.0, a full Python 3.2 interpreter is included in the system, and is currently accessible to developers. We're building a community framework on top of this runtime to allow the development of complete, "native" PlayBook and BB10 applications using Python!
