I agree with +Patrick Archibald. I really am not thrilled with this news.

Wow! A new release of +VectorLinux. Honestly, I thought this distro was dead. Very happy to see a new release and it appears the project is going strong.

They only have the Gold Standard and the VLocity (64 bits)? Not the Home Office and Light ones from before (yet, at least).
Nevertheless the distro is polished, has a Slackware heart... godspeed!

Okay, so in more detail, here is what I dislike about this statement: It actually discourages change. Let's assume that currently, 99% of capitalists are bloodsuckers. We want that to change.
Now let's say a decent human being, who agrees that this situation sucks, decides to do something about it. What's the first thing one can do to change the situation? Do it better!
So that person plans to start their own company, where employees, customers, society and the environment are treated with utmost respect.
Then that person reads that all capitalists are automatically bloodsuckers. They don't want to be a bloodsucker, so they decide to better not start a company.
The situation stays as it is.
Absolute statements don't allow anyone or anything to be different, which I think isn't good.

I'm thinking about trying these out on the Monkey. I've had them forever but to be honest, I'm not sure why I ever purchased them. I had tape on them at one time.

The only issue I'm finding is that my normal riser bar brake levers aren't going to work.

YES!! 
By a 2-1 vote on Friday, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled against Tab Bonidy, a licensed gun owner who said the restrictions violated his Second Amendment right to bear arms. Circuit Judge David Ebel said the right to carry firearms does not apply to federal buildings such as post offices, and that while it was a "closer question" he would not second-guess the Postal Service's extending the ban to its parking lots.

Most are old enough to remember where the phrase "going postal" originated. :/

While sitting at the coffee shop, a few bicyclists in their spandex felt they needed to tell me what being a "real" bicyclist is like. They told me that a real bicyclist wears spandex for better aerodynamics and rides a road bike. Well, I said, since you gave me your opinion, even though I didn't ask for it, I'll give you mine. A bicyclist is anyone that loves bikes and loves riding them. I commute on a Surly Karate Monkey that's made of steel and set up as a single speed. I also wear cargo shorts, t-shirts, and a bike helmet. If you "weekend warriors" would like to join me on a ride, you're more than welcome. No response from the "real bicyclists" as they rode off.

Seriously, folks, ride what you want and wear anything that you want. All I care about is that you ride and have fun while you do it. :-)

They were behind me in line to buy coffee. They sat next to me outside on the sidewalk and after a few minutes, asked me about my Surly Karate Monkey. They said that it looked uncomfortable and then they started in with their little speech. I seriously think they were joking more than anything but I got annoyed enough that I felt the need to return with my own snobby remarks.

Anyone running DragonFly BSD or have you tried it in the past? What's the installation like? Is the installation more like FreeBSD or something more like PC-BSD?

Cool.
I would love to see a fully integrated open-source/free/cheap "own-cloud" solution, ie. one that included an email server capable of push email.

Hands down, the best coffee shop in Belleville. There are other coffee shops in town but they don't even compare. The owner and employees are the friendliest people around, they have Vegan options for frozen yogurt, they serve homemade breakfast sandwiches with, again, Vegan options, and the coffee is locally roasted, organic, and single-sourced. This is a downtown treasure that my family and I LOVE supporting (almost on a daily basis).

Old Town Coffee Tea & Spice is exactly what my wife and I have been looking for since we moved to the DC Metro area almost two years ago. We love good coffee and the selection here is wonderful. Whole bean, many choices, very affordable and the staff is very helpful. It's located in Old Town, Alexandria, which is a very nice bonus since I'm always looking for excuses to go there. We will be going back again and again and telling all of our coffee drinking friends about this place.

I love Irish Pubs (good Irish Pubs) and O'Connell's didn't disappoint. My wife and I are new to the area, having just moved here from Indianapolis and love finding new places where we can hang out and have a good beer. Located in Old Town Alexandria, this pub fits right in with the "old charm" of the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly, the decor is wonderful (dark woods everywhere - looks very Irish), the food is very good (but as a Vegan, I would like to see more options). My favorite, and only real option, is the hummus/veggie platter, which, is very good. For $8, you get enough to feed more than one person. They have a great beer selection on tap but I would like to see more local selections. At the time of our visit, there was just one local beer on tap. Also, it would be nice to have wireless connectivity available. This would be a great place to come for a beer early in the afternoon and get a bit of client work done. Overall, I highly recommend O'Connell's and I am absolutely positive that my wife and I will be back again and again. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the lack of Vegan food options and the lack of wireless connectivity.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. Regarding the food, I'm a Vegan and there really wasn't anything for me but my wife and kids found some great options. The shopping is the part of the visit that we enjoyed the most. We just moved to the area and we were looking for some local art to hang on the walls. We met some great local artists and purchased some great art. We are really looking forward to our next visit. The Eastern Market is definitely a gem in a great city!

4 months back, I was in the market for a new web host. I had tried many of the larger hosts but none of them really impressed me. I experienced many outages with no explanation as to why the outages even happened. I decided to start looking at some of the smaller companies hoping for a better experience. I moved my site to IQnection and I couldn't be happier. Great customer service and my sites run great. In the 4 months that I've been with them there has only been one outage and, as it turns out, the problem wasn't even with their equipment. Customers were updated regarding the issue via social media until the issue was resolved. That is exactly the kind of service that I was looking for. If you're in the market for a new web host, I would definitely give them a try. They are very affordable and offer some great plans.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. While there, we decided to try brunch at Tunnicliff's Tavern just across the street. Our visit didn't disappoint. Great food, excellent and friendly service, great atmosphere and some great beer on tap. The only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is that there weren't many choices for local beer. Add a few more local selections and there wouldn't be a reason to eat or drink at any other pub/tavern in the neighborhood. All in all, an excellent visit and we can't wait to drop in again.
