Classification TOP SECRET//COMINT-GAMMA//ORCON/REL TO USA, FVEY

Ich für meinen Teil finde es schon köstlich, die persönlichen Gespräche von Regierungsmitgliedern fast wörtlich mitzulesen und Top-Secret Dokumente hier zu zitieren.  ;-). Roher O-Ton ist einfach besser als weichwaschende, von Konjunktiven strotzdende Zeitungsartikel.

Quellenkritik: Könnte alles erfunden sein, aber hätte Merkel es dann nicht dementiert?

Eurozone Crisis: Merkel Uncertain on Solution to Greek Problems, Would Press U.S. and UK (TS//SI-G//OC/REL TO USA, FVEY)

(TS//SI-G//OC/REL TO USA, FVEY) Discussing the Greek financial crisis with her personal assistant on 11 October, German Chancellor Angela Merkel professed to be at a loss as to which option--another haircut or a transfer union--would be best for addressing the situation. (The term "haircut" refers to the losses that private investors would incur on the current net value of their Greek bond holdings.) Merkel's fear was that Athens would be unable to overcome its problems even with an additional haircut, since it would not be able to handle the remaining debt. Furthermore, she doubted that sending financial experts to Greece would be of much help in bringing the financial system there under control. ...

Ein bisschen gemeinsames Auf-die-Schultern-klopfen darf sein - wenn auch weit im Nachhinein. Wir bei +insign gmbh  programmieren nun mal schneller als wir Marketingtexte schreiben.

So I've (finally) released my take on a generic Arduino Android bluetooth controller. It lets you program a user interface and interaction right on your Arduino, which is then rendered in the generic Android controller app. You can add and update buttons, sliders, text fields, even charts. Or read phone sensors, such as gyro sensors (I made a neat little phone-motion-controlled RC car out of it in no time).

Check it out at https://bitbucket.org/bachi76/arduino-bluetooth-controller - feedback welcome.
An Android remote control app for Arduino projects. It receives its commands and UI etc. from the Arduino via bluetooth. The Arduino C/C++ source is added too.

+Barton George , as you suggested in the Dell forum I tried to contact Dell pro support regarding a M3800 DE / Ubuntu question. The answer: "We do not support Ubuntu here in the technical team and have no contact to the Sputnik team, try to contact them via the forum" - see email below.

What the heck? I assumed Dell does officially support the DE edition, also in Europe? Can you please advise?

Sehr geehrter Herr Bachmann,
 
leider muss ich Sie mit Fragen zu Ubuntu an das Sputnik-Team verweisen. Bitte kontaktieren Sie das Team über die entsprechende Webseite bzw. Forum. Hier im techn. Support wird dieses Projekt nicht unterstützt. Wir haben keinerlei Kontakt zu diesem Team.

+Barton George , I am still waiting for an answer from you. On your blog you encourage us to ask for DELL pro support, while DELL pro support repeats that they do not offer Ubuntu support. Which statement is correct?

Diese Trollfabrik als Teil von Putins zumindest zu Beginn noch erfolgreichen Propagandaschlacht ist schon lange bekannt. Klar, haben sie sie immer geleugnet.

Ich baue heute Abend zusammen mit dem +Martin Bachmann​ eine Fernsteuerung für unsere Walter Meier Thermix TM15, welche das Ferienhaus in #Brambrüesch beheizt! Ab 19:00 in unseren insign Labs bei der +insign gmbh​!

Zutaten:
* Arduino
* GSMShied2
* Diverse Sensoren und Relais
* Know-how

Ziel:
* Per SMS die Heizung in den Frostschutz-Modus schalten.
* Per SMS die Heizung wieder einschalten.
* Per SMS die aktuelle Temperatur und Luftfeuchtigkeit abfragen.
* ...und wofür die Zeit und der Ehrgeiz sonst noch ausreichen :)

HowTo: Upgrade from 14.04 LTS to 15.04

After I couldn't get any definitive advise on how to do distro upgrades on the M3800 I just went ahead - and in turn broke my system (kernel panic at boot). Took me a while to find the issue, here's what I found out.

The problem lies in two dkms packages that have BUILD EXCLUSIVE flags. This prevents them from being built with new kernels. During the update, you'll get errors like this:

"E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/casper-memdisk failed with return 1"

And if you restart after the failed upgrade, you end up with a dark screen and the blinking shift key, indicating kernel panic.

Solution:

Boot into the boot menu (press shift when booting), start from the previous kernel. Then:

sudo dpkg -P oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms
sudo dpkg -P casper-memdisk
sudo apt-get install -f linux-image-3.19.0-20-generic
sudo update-grub

Maybe more is needed, e.g. reinstall the packages (haven't tested sound yet). Feedback welcome.

I hope Dell can solve this rather annoying problem with updates for other users (cc +Barton George )

A little follow up on my adventure to reach 15.04:

it turns out that there was no bootloader option for the recovery partition on my m3800. I could see the partition in the UEFI interface though and point it to what looked like the right .EFI file, but this didn't work. So that option was apparently off the table.

Instead I put a fresh 15.04 iso on a USB stick and booted from that. But even this was not totally smooth. At first the USB stick I had, a SanDisk U3, didn't allow me to complete the boot. At some point I got a strange message reporting that DELL Recovery could only be performed on DELL hardware (well, yes, duh...), even though I wasn't attempting to do a recovery. Perhaps this is a catch-all error message for failed boot? Anyway, after a change of USB stick and also the discovery that the machine wouldn't boot off an image made either with Universal USB Installer, or with UNetbootin, I eventually wrote an image with Ubuntu's Startup Disk Creator that worked.

I wasn't given the option to upgrade my broken 14.10 to 15.04 by the installer, so I elected to wipe 14.04 partition, but keep my DIAGS and apparently useless recovery partitions. I should also note that the Ubuntu installer hung for what felt like ages at the "preparing to install Ubuntu" stage. It was probably only 15 minutes, but far too long for comfort. Once past that stage everything went smoothly and so far I've had no problems with 15.04.

Lousy service: 50 min waiting after the order, on a normal Monday noon, no sorry, just shrugging: "we have so many guests". The restaurant was 2/3 empty.
