You can stop reading if OpenBSD and Linux doesn't mean much to you.

In case you are wondering how to install OpenBSD in a KVM based Virtual Machine from a headless {Debian,Ubuntu} Linux server. Do the following:

$ sudo apt-get install genisoimage growisofs
$ echo 'set tty com0' > boot.conf
$ growisofs -M install54.iso -l -R -graft-points /etc/boot.conf=boot.conf
$ virt-install -n <vm-name> --ram=<1024> --vcpus=<1> \
  --cpu host --os-variant=openbsd4 \
  --accelerate --hvm --cdrom </path/to/openbsd.iso> \
  --network bridge:br0,model=virtio \
  --disk path=</dev/vgX/vm-name?>,bus=virtio,size=<X in GB> \
  --graphics none

This took me a while to figure out because most people just assume the host has X installed.

Hangouts 2.1 for Android: SMS improvements and a homescreen widget

Today we’re launching the newest version of Hangouts for Android, rolling out to the Play store (http://goo.gl/6Sv8V) over the next few days. Highlights include:

- Merged conversations: SMS and Hangout conversations with the same recipient are now combined into a single conversation. You can control whether you want to send a message via Hangouts or SMS with the flip of a switch, and different message types will be easy to tell apart in the conversation. Of course, you can always merge and unmerge conversations if you’d like.

- Simplified contact list: now there’s two main sections in contacts — People you Hangout With, and Phone Contacts — making it simpler to navigate, and easier to use for SMS.

- Homescreen widget: add the Hangouts widget to your homescreen for quick access to your recent conversations.

- Performance improvements: today’s update includes better quality video calls, as well as improved SMS and MMS reliability.

The new version will be available in the Play store (http://goo.gl/6Sv8V) this week, so download or update and let us know what you think!

The "Miura fold"; a method in which a sheet is folded to minimize storage area while maximizing surface area. This technique is used on the solar panels on satellites.

The photos from your phone, now one click away

Unless you’re a budding Ansel Adams, odds are you take most of your photos using your phone. And whether it’s photos of your hiking trip or a night out, sending photos to friends and family just got easier. Starting today, you can save time and insert your Auto Backup photos from your phone into Gmail messages on the web using the new Insert Photo button: https://goo.gl/hXpcWl

I can't +1 some of the comments in the original thread hard enough.

I know there's currently great music out there. Unfortunately, very few of it makes its way into the mainstream these days. The record/publishing/tour companies blame piracy where the truth is that promoting mediocre acts then toss them out and do it all over again is much more profitable than dealing with the (often) uncontrollable geniuses.

It's always been true but they've mastered how to package and sell the same crap over and over again scamming everyone along the way - artists and consumers. It clearly got more traction during the napster's days where greedy took over by masterfully spreading FUD about what would come up next.
 
You know it's true...
For Generation Y, music is just what you listen to. For Xers, it defines who we are

Most of everything, all of the time, is shit. The 90's had some serious dross!

The number of people with instruments/skills is higher than ever, the channel is changing.

Subscription services put the listener in charge like never before.

Musicians will never make money like they did on CD, and there will never be the hegemony of taste that radio and the labels required.

Pomplamoose, Lake Street Drive, Straight No Chaser, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Artic Monkeys, that list is from memory without opening a browser or spotify. All great acts that the record companies had nothing to do with finding.

Access is better, reproduction is better, access to the back catalogue is better. I'm excited, the kids are coming and it's gonna be great!

We're recording less early 90's metal, but I think we'll get over it. :)

Born in the 1950s, these temples of commerce were symbols of the US consumer culture – but many are now dying out. Jonathan Glancey takes a look.
