"Tamiflu & Relenza: how effective are they?" (http://www.cochrane.org/features/tamiflu-relenza-how-effective-are-they)

+Vincent Racaniello this seems all over the news media. I'd love to hear pro's opinions on future TWiV.

Ha, I took tamiflu and then I got better.  But I suppose I got better because of the 20+ hours of sleep every day, and maybe not the tamiflu.

Git 1.9.1 has been tagged. This is the first maintenance release for Git 1.9 released earlier.
Traditionally, releases numbered with three Dewey-decimal digits were major releases that add new features, while ones with four were maintenance releases with only fixes. This was meant to give us some flexibility to say tha...

Git 2.0?

A quick poll. Do we want to see the next version of Git to be 2.0, or 1.10?

+1 one of the choices.

Note: this is just a poll to see what people want as a datapoint to help me in making a decision, which may or may not match the majority sentiment.

[edit] Now I have learned from this poll enough...

GnuCash stops fetching quotes from Yahoo

Actually, that is Finance::Quote Perl module.

Following an insn for AU blindly, replacing Austraria.pm with USA.pm in
http://www.marshut.com/ipxumx/no-price-updates-anymore.html,
but still using http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv as the value of the URL, managed to get it working again.

Whew.

Sigh... I thought we had such a peaceful and civilized place for a while... Good things do not last forever?

Sure they will. But sometimes they're hidden, don't worry.

So, I have pushed out the topics we have been preparing for the upcoming Git 2.0 on the 'master' branch for a bit wider public consumption today. Which means that we are pretty much committed to make the next one the 2.0 at this point.

Kind of scary, isn't it ;-) ?

Have fun.

Well written.

Says: """Now evaluate GSoC from an OS contributor's point of view:

* Google will pay a student to work full time on my project. Great!
* Maybe the student will turn into a regular contributor, and stick around after GSoC is over. Awesome!
* Maybe I can help the student become a better developer. Sounds good!

but on the other hand...

* It will probably take as much time to mentor the student as it would take me to implement the feature myself.
* I will have to spend that time mentoring (which I may or may not enjoy), rather than coding (which I love).
* The student might turn out to be a dud, who sucks up lots of my time without producing anything.

Note that all of the downsides of mentoring a student have to do with its cost in time. The way to be an awesome GSoC student is to optimize the way you use your mentor's time."""

Yes. I'd say that mentoring would take more than three-times the time it would take for an experienced people to do the job themselves. It takes an effort on the apprentice's side to make it worthwhile.
