  • John Goerzen: Aerial Photos: Our Little House on the Prairie
    This was my first attempt to send up the quadcopter in winter. It's challenging to take good photos of a snowy landscape anyway. Add to that the fact that the camera is flying, and it's cold, which is hard on batteries and motors. I was rather amazed at how well it (...)

  • Mario Lang: deluXbreed #2 is out!
    The third installment of my crossbreed digital mix podcast is out! This time, I am featuring Harder & Louder and tracks from Behind the Machine and the recently released Remixes. Apolloud - Nagazaki Apolloud - Hiroshima SA+AN - Darksiders Im Colapsed - Cleaning 8 Micromakine & Switch (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/17
    my list of IRC channels (& the list of people I'm following on micro-blogging platforms) has a heavy debian bias. a thing I noticed today is that I had read (or at least: seen) messages in 6 languages (English, German, Castilian, Catalan, French, Italian). – thanks guys for the (...)

  • Keith Packard: MST-monitors
    Multi-Stream Transport 4k Monitors and X I'm sure you've seen a 4k monitor on a friends desk running Mac OS X or Windows and are all ready to go get one so that you can use it under Linux. Once you've managed to acquire one, I'm afraid you'll discover that when you plug it (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/16
    today I met with a young friend (attending the final year of technical high school) for coffee. he's exploring free software since one or two years, & he's running debian jessie on his laptop since some time. it's really amazing to see how exciting this travel into the free (...)

  • Raphael Geissert: Editing Debian online with sources.debian.net
    How cool would it be to fix that one bug you just found without having to download a source package? and without leaving your browser? Inspired by github's online code editing, during Debconf 14 I worked on integrating an online editor on debsources (the software behind sources.debian.net). (...)

  • Gustavo Noronha Silva: Web Engines Hackfest 2014

lundi 15 décembre 2014

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/15
    nothing exciting today in my debian life. just yet another nice example of collaboration around an RC bug where the bug submitter, the maintainer & me investigated via the BTS, & the maintainer also got support on IRC from others. – now we just need someone to come up with an (...)

  • Holger Levsen: 20121214-not-everybody-is-equal
    We ain't equal in Debian neither and wishful thinking won't help. "White people think calling them white is racist." - "White people think calling them racist is racist." (Thanks to and via 2damnfeisty and blackgirlsparadise!) Posted here (in this white male community...) as a food (...)

  • Thomas Goirand: Supporting 3 init systems in OpenStack packages
    tl;dr: Providing support for all 3 init systems (sysv-rc, Upstart and systemd) isn't hard, and generating the init scripts / Upstart job / systemd using a template system is a lot easier than I previously thought. As always, when writing this kind of blog post, I do expect that others will not (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/14
    I just got a couple of mails from the BTS. like almost every day, several times per day. now it made me realize how much I like the BTS, & how happy I am that it works so well & even gets new features. – thanks to the BTS maintainers for their continuous work! this posting is (...)

  • Mario Lang: Data-binding MusicXML
    My long-term free software project (Braille Music Compiler) just produced some offspring! xsdcxx-musicxml is now available on GitHub. I used CodeSynthesis XSD to generate a rather complete object model for MusicXML 3.0 documents. Some of the classes needed a bit of manual adjustment, to make (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: RC bugs 2014/49-50
    it's getting harder to find "nice" RC bugs, due to the efforts of various bug hunters & the awesome auto-removal-from-testing feature. – anyway, here's the list of bugs I worked on in the last 2 weeks: #766740 – gamera: "gamera FTBFS on arm64, testsuite failure." sponsor (...)

  • Enrico Zini: html5-sse
    HTML5 Server-sent events I have a Django view that runs a slow script server-side, and streams the script output to Javascript. This is the bit of code that runs the script and turns the output into a stream of events: def stream_output(proc): ''' Take a subprocess.Popen object and (...)

  • Daniel Leidert: Issues with Server4You vServer running Debian Stable (Wheezy)
    I recently acquired a vServer hosted by Server4You and decided to install a Debian Wheezy image. Usually I boot any device in backup mode and first install a fresh Debian copy using debootstrap over the provided image, to have a clean system. In this case I did not and I came across a few (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: rfoaas 0.0.4.20141212
    A new version of rfoaas is now on CRAN. The rfoaas package provides an interface for R to the most excellent FOAAS service -- which provides a modern, scalable and RESTful web service for the frequent need to tell someone to eff off. The FOAAS backend gets updated in spurts, and yesterday a (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/12
    debian is again taking part in the OPW, & this afternoon I happened to read the backlog of the first weekly IRC meeting (in #debian-qa) between the mentors & the mentee for one of the projects. it was great to see that the participant's first patch is already merged & deployed, (...)

  • Jingjie Jiang: Week1
    Down the rabbit hole Starting from this week, my OPW period officially begins. I am thankful and very grateful to this chance. One for the reason I can get an opportunity to contribute to a beneficial, working, meaningful, real-world software. The other seemingly reason is, I can learn much (...)

  • EvolvisForge blog: Tip of the day: don't use –purge when cross-grading
  • Joey Hess: a brainfuck monad
    Inspired by "An ASM Monad", I've built a Haskell monad that produces brainfuck programs. The code for this monad is available on hackage, so cabal install brainfuck-monad. Here's a simple program written using this monad. See if you can guess what it might do: import (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RProtoBuf 0.4.2
    A new release 0.4.2 of RProtoBuf is now on CRAN. RProtoBuf provides R bindings for the Google Protocol Buffers ("Protobuf") data encoding library used and released by Google, and deployed as a language and operating-system agnostic protocol by numerous projects. Murray and Jeroen did almost (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/10
    debian has a bigger role than "just" providing a free operating system to our users (& derivatives), it's also an important player in the free software world at large. a recent indication of this is the composition of the FSF's High Priority Projects Committee: if I'm counting (...)

  • Clint Adams: In Uganda, a popular marbles game is called dool.
    Sophie stood before me. “I'm leaving with that guy,” she gestured. “Yes, I thought that would happen,” I chuckled. She hugged me. The guy, whose name we managed to never utter, did not hug me, though he usually does. They went home together. That was the last time (...)

  • Chris Lamb: Starting IPython automatically from zsh
    Instead of a calculator, I tend to use IPython for those quotidian bits of "mental" arithmetic: In [1]: 17 * 22.2 Out [1]: 377.4 However, I often forget to actually start IPython, resulting in me running the following in my shell: $ 17 * 22.2 zsh: command not found: 17 Whilst I could learn do (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: Wilco!!
    With a bit of luck due to a collegue having a spare ticket, I managed to make it to an awesome Wilco show at The Riviera in Uptown. This concert was part of a set a six shows. Tweedy and the band were fast, and loose, and wonderful, and totally beloved by the home crowd. An truly outstanding (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RcppAnnoy 0.0.4
    A few weeks ago, RcppAnnoy had its initial release 0.0.2 and subsequent update in release 0.0.3. The latter brought Windows support, thanks to a neat pull request by Qiang Kou. RcppAnnoy wraps the small, fast, and lightweight C++ template header library Annoy written by Erik Bernhardsson for (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/9
    today, I again had a pleasant experience around an RC bug, featuring a diligent patch submitter, & a maintainer showing his appreciation for the help. – motivating! this posting is part of GDAC (gregoa's debian advent calendar), a project to show the bright side of debian & (...)

  • Joey Hess: podcasts that don't suck, 2014 edition
    The Memory Palace: This is the way history should be taught, but rarely is. Nate DiMeo takes past events and puts you in the middle of them, in a way that makes you emphathise so much with people from the past. Each episode is a little short story, and they're often only a few minutes long. (...)

  • Wouter Verhelst: Playing with ExtreMon
    Munin is a great tool. If you can script it, you can monitor it with munin. Unfortunately, however, munin is slow; that is, it will take snapshots once every five minutes, and not look at systems in between. If you have a short load spike that takes just a few seconds, chances are pretty high (...)

  • C.J. Adams-Collier: MySQL Meet-up 20141208
    I had an enjoyable time last night at Twitter with local MySQL DBAs and developers. We had an attendee who has no experience with SQL or programming at all. She is interested in organizing her collection of recipes and had heard a rumor that MySQL was a good tool to use for this task. She (...)

  • Enrico Zini: radicale-davdroid
    Radicale and DAVDroid radicale and DAVdroid appeal to me. Let's try to make the whole thing work. A self-signed SSL certificate Generating the certificate: openssl req -nodes -x509 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout cal-key.pem -out cal-cert.pem -days 3650 [...] Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:IT (...)

  • Tanguy Ortolo: Using bsdtar to change an archive format
  • Hideki Yamane: ThinkPad X121e with UFEI boot
  • Thorsten Glaser: The colon in the shell: corrigenda
  • Russ Allbery: wallet 1.2
    wallet is a system for secure credential management and distribution. This release renames the duo object type to duo-pam (since it really only handles PAM integrations) and adds new object types duo-radius, duo-ldap, and duo-rdp to handle other types of Duo Security integrations. It also (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: GDAC 2014/8
    today, a pkg-perl member who was not very active for the last 2 or so years "re-appeared", & together we prepared & uploaded a new package. – always good to see people coming back! this posting is part of GDAC (gregoa's debian advent calendar), a project to show the bright (...)

  • Bernhard R. Link: The Colon in the Shell.
    I was recently asked about some construct in a shell script starting with a colon(:), leading me into a long monologue about it. Afterwards I realized I had forgotten to mention half of the nice things. So here for your amusement some usage for the colon in the shell: To find the meaning of (...)

  • Andrew Pollock: [tech] A geek Dad goes to Kindergarten with a box full of Open Source and some vegetables
    Zoe's Kindergarten encourages parents to come in and spend some time with the kids. I've heard reports of other parents coming in and doing baking with the kids or other activities at various times throughout the year. Zoe and I had both wanted me to come in for something, but it had (...)
