Might be interesting for those of you using i3 as a window manager :D
Hey everyone,

today I'd like to share a project I'm working on with you.
It's purpose is basically to add some theme support to i3.

It does that by patching the style of the current i3 config with the style of another one, meaning, it replaces everything matching some patterns in the current config file with the matches of a new one.
That enables it to replace all colour definitions such as client.* and the colors block by something else ideally completely changing the look of your desktop.
It also takes care of adding used variables (e.g. if the new config does something like client.focused $colour1 $colour2 it adds the colour definitions to the config as well)

It's still in a very early stage, so make sure you keep a backup of your config files somewhere safe. Until now it only supports the main i3 config file, it isn't able to patch your i3status config or whatever but it is planned to add more general support for replacing some config files.

More information can be found in the readme and the linked documentation.

If anyone is interested, it would be great to have some testers giving me some feedback (be it positive or negative).

And if some python geniuses are here, this is my first bigger python project, so any notes about coding style etc. are welcome, too!

Aaand my Nexus 5 is broken :/ The evil thing about it: it would work - if only the power button would work. Now it's in a constant reboot loop because the power button seems to be constantly pressed. It's not that it's stuck (I already opened the phone and took a look at the power button) but it behaves as if it was constantly being pressed.
Any ideas how to fix it? (other than replacing the power button, I can't do that myself, as I have zero experience with resoldering stuff and I don't feel like getting it repaired, it already has a cracked screen and the USB port likes to kick out the charging cable)
Or does someone know a relatively cheap developer friendly phone, at about 5" screen size, at least 2GB RAM and a Snapdragon CPU (or another developer friendly chipset)? It doesn't have to be high end, but it should be able to run Android without lags. I was thinking about a LG G3, any other suggestions?

Java is secure they said...
That's especially interesting for everyone running a Java based web service.
I tried the provided POC code with a default installation of jenkins and it was indeed exploitable remotely. That's VERY bad. A quick fix for jenkins would be to block all traffic on high ports (it seems jenkins uses a random port > 30,000 for its CLI service).

Oh the irony...
Since yesterday, this article keeps hogging the top of my g+ feed as "recommended for you".

Happy birthday, +Matt Flaming!
I hereby grant you 20 of my precious fucks to give! I heard your "Give-A-Fuck-O-Meter" counts -20 so I thought that would be a good opportunity to pay your debts.

Smart guy...
Blocked me some time ago after I told him that only because MS may invest into CM all the Windows malware won't come to android (yes, he shared an article about the MS investment and stated how worried he's about all the malware).

Now he's seeking help at our PA community with a beginners problem, which I could easily help him solve. But, damn!! He blocked me, so I can't comment and tell him how to fix it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank you Cyanogen for FUCKING UP my Nexus 6 with your update. I know it was my choice to flash it, but some responsibility should be taken on the part of your Shamu developer for not warning about problems with that Nightly and 5.1. I expect more from a real company like yours, & I'm extremely let down by the Cyanogen brand now. Shame on you!

Something I've been working on. Materialising catlog.
One screenshot is taken with a DPI of 320 and the other one with 480 (default).
Do you think the search box should be moved to the action bar or stay at that position? I think it'd be a bit small with default DPI settings, but I'm curious how others think about that.

When I'm done I'll create a pull request of course, so the author will be able to update his app.๏ปฟ
