Bye bye Cyanogen. Nice way to commit suicide.
I just wonder how many previous contributors to cyanogenmod are now looking for ways to block cyanogen OS from using their contributions. 

(I really need to teach SwiftKey auto-complete to distinguish between Cyanogen and Cyanogenmod)

Systemd forks Linux kernel - it is probably a 1st of April "joke", but one of the worst ever. It is too close to reality to be even remotely funny.

PS: interesting how the "article" manages to repeat some of the biggest lies, including the "the Unix way is to have a single repository". 
News and feature lists of Linux and BSD distributions.

Gran reflexión de Jaromil. Está mal preguntar a alguien qué opina de #systemd ya que es considerado trolling.

I bet nearly all of them were from Texas.

Maybe Clarkson should just move there, then he could put on a white hood and joke about "niggers".

oh snap...

Edit: Nuts, one commenter is pretty much invoking the rallying cry of every bloddy revolution in the history of mankind. That some "enlightened" vanguard needs to force everyone else to "see the light". Don't they hear their own damn words?!

Preparing to move away from KDE, it is amazing how little of it I still use.
ktorrent and kmymoney seem to be the two remaining apps. Amarok, which I used a lot on KDE 3.x, I gave up on KDE4. No idea if the album/songs list still refreshes whenever something is changed, but that really broke my usage then. The "semantic desktop" always seemed more like a giant CPU and disk space abuser, and with the transition to baloo and the hiding of the disable functionality, I just gave up on it and now always edit the damn config file to stop the indexer. Both the activities and the plasma widgets never manage to convince me, it is there but I never used any of it, never really had the need for them.
So, after over 10 years using KDE, now I find I don't have much use for it any more. The desktop functionality I use can very easily be replaced with that of XFCE or of a few other lighter desktops, so in the end it seems I won't suffer much when KDE becomes systemd only.

A very nice kickstarter, for raspberry pi and retro gaming fans. And it also includes Kodi, so you can switch to your series or films when you're done gaming!

So, only "authorized" Linux distributions (RedHat and its clone Suse, as well as ubuntu) will be installable in new pcs. Next step - only signed binaries will be allowed in Windows or in these three Linux distributions. After all, you can't be trusted not to watch pirated movies, or to run only "good" programs, or to buy a new computer whenever we decide to make yours obsolete, right?
And for those that say that won't happen in these three remaining distributions, or that you might even be able for some time to run an independent distro, remember that one of systemd's objectives is to have a fully signed and "trusted" (by whom?) system, from the boot manager to the user apps. Pretty soon grub won't be signed, and you'll only have bootd (or whatever systemd's uefi manager is called now), which will only boot a systemd signed kernel, "for your convenience".

Well, it is obvious now what their target is with the "stateless, signed" distribution format they are forcing. You'll only be able to boot with a signed distribution, you'll only be able to run signed, approved binaries, and your specific config will be erased whenever desired by the owners of your computers - the distribution vendors. And you'll have a full "tivoisation" of the PC, and the death of linux as we know it, with a signed and walled potterix as the only allowed alternative to windows.

Making a rudimentary pinhole camera, so you won't burn your eyes
 
Want to watch Friday's solar eclipse without risking your eyes?

Build a viewer with:
-----------------------
1. 2x pieces of stiff white cardboard, like two paper plates. Or, 2x sheets of plain white paper - the kind you use for printing is perfect.

2. A thumbtack or a sharp pin.


Build it:
--------
1. To make a quick version of the pinhole projector, take a sheet of paper and make a very small hole in the middle of it using a pin or a thumbtack. 

2. Make sure that the hole is round and smooth.

3. With your back towards the Sun, hold one piece of paper above your shoulder allowing the Sun to shine on the paper.

4. The second sheet of paper will act as a screen. Hold it at a distance so that an inverted image of the Sun is projected on it through the pinhole.

5. To make the image of the Sun larger, move the screen further away from the pin-holed sheet.

Pedimos apenas pratos do dia, e demorou uma hora para sermos servidos uma açorda salgada, quase sem camarão e sem ovo, e um frango grelhado desenxabido com umas batatas velhas mal fritas e sensaboronas. Serviço ignorante e malcriado. Mesmo pedindo para servir as crianças assim que o frango estivesse pronto, fomos ignorados completamente. A evitar. Actialização - 15/9/2013 - Esta crítica levou a que um dos funcionários, Nuno Caldeirão de seu nome, me insultasse online. Teria feito melhor se tivesse aceite a crítica e melhorado o serviço.

Very nice food, very enjoyable terrace, decent prices. The risotto is great, as is the spaghetti pomodoro, and the traditional sardo sweets.

Muito bom, preços acessíveis, bom serviço, excelente cozinha. O leitão (acabadinho de sair do forno) é uma delícia, e as sobremesas (em particular a mousse) arruínam qualquer ideia de dieta.

Grosse désillusion cette fois. On n'a pas été bienvenues, peut-être pour les enfants? Le service a changé de très bon a Médiocre, et même la cuisine n’était pas aussi bien que les autres fois. On a compris, on y retournera pas.
