Starting work on a simple PDF Viewer using the +Enlightenment libraries. Looking for a good application name. Any ideas?

+Will Hill​ Thanks! That's useful. Though personally I only use Gnome. Until now I was using Chromium to open multiple PDFs in tabs but it always felt like an overkill to use browser for that purpose. I just tested qpdfreader and it's working really well.

I agree about the excellent choices that come with free software and the fact that a lot of them are very old.

In reality a 4.0 kernel version really means that desktop end users will be wondering why they aren't getting this "new kernel" not realizing it isn't a major jump.

Quick note.
Last week I posted that all official Bodhi announcements are going to be posted directly on the Bodhi site from now on. Today I am here to say that while blogger was a great starting platform for me to get started writing wit...

Second piece in my series about developing #opensource communities based on my experience with +Bodhi Linux .
Many hands make light work as they say. More importantly though – many hands come with many minds. An FOSS project consists of a lot more than just ...

Successfully threaded the back end in Exterminator this evening. Working with threading + GUIs in #python would be a good tutorial me thinks

It is amazing how many people completely ignore the Quick Start guide that opens by default when you load +Bodhi Linux and then post on the forums saying they could not find information about things the Quick Start covers.

My favourite startup trick is to delete ~/.e first before running a new version ;)

Let me know when you get an email from your ISP saying you're approaching 1TB of uploads. Fuduntu broke the bank on a lot of people's bandwidth.

First post on the new blog. Going to be doing a series of pieces about the creation, management, and growing pains of creating a new open source project based on my experience with +Bodhi Linux 
It was a little over four years that I was bitten by the bug for the Enlightenment desktop. It was fast, it was customizable, it was beautiful, but ...

Would just like to share how disgusted I am with my experience dealing with Fox Lake Toyota. I am in the market for a new car and Fox Lake advertised a fantastic price on a used Prius V 2012. Even though it was nearly three hours from my front door to Fox Lake Toyota, the price was right and on May 23rd I scheduled to come in Monday the 26th for a test drive with Amanda Astorino. The morning of the 26th I received a confirmation email from Amanda to confirm my appointment. After my wife and I packed up our three month old and drove all the way to Fox Lake, I was informed the Prius I had come to see had been sold two days previously on Saturday the 24th! The solution I was offered? To look at a different car that was $5,000 more and had three times as many miles on it. This is not acceptable. I would not have driven to Fox Lake had I been informed the car I wanted to see was no longer available. Fox Lake Toyota cost my wife and I each six hours worth of time round trip, not to mention the gas and tolls it cost to travel during that time. My clients would have to pay several hundred dollars for this much of my time and I do not appreciate having it wasted by Fox Lake's incompetence. It blows my mind that you are incapable of keeping track of inventory properly. If this is how prospective customers are treated I can not even begin to imagine how poorly Fox Lake Toyota treats people after they collect their money. This experience has left such a bad taste in my mouth that a Prius has gone from my top choice of new car, to being removed from my list entirely. I intend to encourage whoever will listen to avoid Toyota USA dealers when looking for a new car so they can avoid the headache I went through this weekend.
