longtime GNOME 3 hater relents

What did it? F26 on a touchscreen Dell XPS 13. Admittedly, MATE not up to snuff on this config.....

Fucking amazing: who knew that touchscreen support would also make the trackpad support better (qualitatively).

Now I know why all the hacker types are raving about the new xps with i7 8550U.

Eat your heat out macbook (pro/air) with 1-2 ports, trending towards zero. DIE, you weak thing with wack screen aspect ratios and lame video/cpu hardware.

xps has a better keyboard too, in addition to all the above.

Help! I am technical/data lead on a project that is out of control! We are in the middle of sampling Game of Thrones piracy, and at this point are testing a new methodology that more accurately maps Russia, India, and China. It is performing well but saturating our home networks and is running out of computational resources.

If any hackers in a geo-postive place for bittorrent have a spare linux server on fat bandwidth and want to be part of a cool UC Berkeley research project for no money, please ping me via email. We can credit you for your assistance. No, we cannot host this at UC Berkeley. I'd need ssh access or a site-local C++ guru, with sources hosted on github and a fullstack based on F24/25/26.

I'm laughing out loud for even posting this. Any genius ideas appreciated. The ideal plan would be to clone our exisiting SF/sonic.net setup in either Germany or Singapore, Toronto, Prague, etc.

Some of the existing results can be found on:

(40GB data / week uncompressed, significant and super weird-ip activity that may look like a virus every other hour, etc. I believe AWS is out as this network protocol violates TOS, plus getting that data off that platform would be................... hella expensive)

Hello G+! I am racking my brains trying to find a web citation about best practices in FLOSS development. As I remember it, this went beyond the usual license fetishes, and addressed notions of development community, users, etc. There were sub-topics like release schedules, maintainers, public development lists, bug reporting, etc? Ring any bells??  It outlined a more systematic criteria to characterize successful open source development projects from abandonware, etc.

House of Cards Season 2 Day Zero

transcribed ADK + BDK commentary

Vast Improvement over S1 last 6 episodes. S201 may be one of the finest serial hours. WTF!!
 
Some new form, a long-form of 12 hours inclusive. Not necessarily episodic as much as atmospheric.

Abigail keeps thinking, this should be HBO. Keeps thinking of HBO logo as appearing in opening. Why? What is quality TV? What is viewing? Why is Comcast+TimeWarner merger announced day before internet melts due to House of Cards Season 2 being released?

Plotting is delightful. Robin Wright doubles down. Spacey playing for keeps. Fanfic vs. basing on UK original, means S02 plotting and characters freed from original: this season is gonna be much more interesting.

More advanced forms of placement. Dunkin Donuts. Samsung, Apple, Blackberry influences from S01 commentary.

Fincher and visual aesthetic. Hella nice. Some of the themes,  angles, setups, slow tracking shots starting from wide shots usually the grammar of film. Evolution of digital production. Loving it.

DEEP. DARK. WE LIKE-Y
