Sorry for the crappy audio, this is not something I regularly do, so I don't have a decent mic around.

This looks like a great use case for the low-cost #ZTEOPEN

Hi guys, we are happy to announce the Linux Remote Control for #FirefoxOS .

The #lrc is an application that turns your Firefox OS into a remote control for your GNU/Linux.

Remembering that it is a beta test phase and in some instabilities can occur, but we're working to fix the bugs and release a stable version.

Download, use, enjoy and rate.
Thank you.

+Michael Boyle Could you be a little more specific?, what happens when you run 'sstail -l -n 3 -u https://www.archlinux.org/feeds/news/' in your terminal? What is the output?

RESOLVED

I am experiencing a small, but annoying issue, where when using 'nconfig', I am not able to use any extended keys (Arrow keys, F1-F12 keys), because e.g. when pressing arrow down, it does not go down, but simply prints '^[[B' (arrow down), '^[[A' (arrow up) etc.  

My vconsole.conf:
KEYMAP=uk

$ echo $TERM 
$ xterm

This DOES NOT happen in ViM, where it is the problem for most people. 
In vim, nano, man page viewer, mc etc. the arrow keys work as they should. 

Any ideas?

SOLVED

Apparently some colour aliases can confuse zsh into printing ASCII characters of the keys pressed, instead of performing the requested action, although it seems to only affect a limited number of ncurses-based tools, like e.g. nconfig.

#GNOMEShell  isn't worth it. 
I complained about the sluggish 2D performance of the +NVIDIA driver under GNOME Shell, thinking it's NVidia's fault - next I tried the iGPU (HD 4600) with the "SNA" acceleration method and while I saw noticeable improvement, it was still rather sluggish, so I tried the old "UXA" acceleration method, which improved it further, but still not quite to my liking.

So I tried AwesomeWM and i3 and did not experience the sluggish performance.
As such, I've came to the conclusion that it's really on the GNOME side, installed #KDE and sure enough, everything is buttery smooth (even when I enabled ALL desktop effects, I experienced no slowdown) and guess what - It even works flawlessly with the NVidia blob.
So GNOME, you're definitely lost me as a user (and I've given you more than enough chances).

I am not saying that Gnome is not sluggish for you.. just said it was not for me. The changes to Nautilus did improve it's speed. Sure they removed some features but then it is not hard to do as you did and install another. It was long overdue for Nautilus to get an overhaul.

+Matej Ľach.. You are using Linux. Attitude is quite common here. Just take a look at Linus ;) .. just kidding.. but I don't find it that alarming. Not everyone have the stamina to be as awesome as Aaron Seigo. They could do better but it not as you pay them anything.

I think Gnome are on the right track but maybe not there yet. It takes time to develop something like this.

*For Galaxy Nexus GSM (maguro) users only*

Since I am compiling these builds for myself anyway, I may as well share them with the community. 
These are daily builds of CyanogenMod 10.2 (Android 4.3) straight from their source without any modifications whatsoever. 
I'll attempt to test every build to make sure that it is working properly, but nevertheless I have to insert the usual disclaimer, that if you brick you device, you're on your own.

*THESE BUILDS ARE UNSTABLE - use at you own risk!*

+Linus Torvalds Any opinions on the Rust programming language? 
(http://www.rust-lang.org
If you haven't tried it yet, I think that you should!
I sincerely think that you'd like it. :-)
A systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents almost all crashes, and eliminates data races.

My opinion is that APIs should NOT be copyrightable under any circumstances, because they are the essence of today's app ecosystem and rich internet services. Practically every application you use today makes some API calls, whether it is to display your timeline, or to to render your GUI window etc. Now, if APIs were to be allowed to fail under copyright, then you could potentially have a situation where if a service wants to block certain competitors from effectively using their APIs, they may be able to do that now under the pre-text of copyright.

Imagine if now, you could not import playlists from a competing application, because now they are able to claim copyright on certain parts of it their API you may need and target you specifically. End result? You application will be less competitive in the marketplace and you may fail, even if you product is very good.

This issue gets even worse with programming languages, because for example many of the dynamic ones have a print() function. Let's say that one of them was able to now claim as their own creation that fails under copyright.
Can you imagine what a headache that would be for the other languages?

Also, probably a lot of music services, have a function, such as 'play()', what if one was able to claim copyright on it, forcing others to change their function to '__i_am_a_very_silly-play()' in order to avoid infringement, making their API less intuitive to work with for the developers, therefore resulting in less apps for their particular service and therefore less market value, even if their service is as good, if not better than those who was able to claim copyright on 'play()'? I am not even talking about breaking all the apps that use the older 'play()' etc. etc.

Now, some may argue that perhaps a more specific form of API should be copyrightable, such as the Java API, but in reality, every programming language under the sun has a somewhat similar API, because quite frankly, they are not all that different in their fundamentals and if you independently came up with YOUR OWN implementation of Java, that does not infringe on anything, but its API-compatible, than you're smart and should not be punished for it. 

Also, Android really helped Java to get out of the enterprise spectrum and back into the public view, so there's that aspect of it. 

However, I am not familiar with all the specifics of this particular case and so my opinions should just be taken for what their are - opinions, not facts.

There's an interesting article in the current edition of LWN about birdfont, which is a new project that aims to make editing some common font types easier. 

Article: http://lwn.net/Articles/566055/
Homepage: http://birdfont.org/

I've put together a quick & dirty PKGBUILD:

BirdFont is a free font editor that lets you create vector graphics and export TTF, EOT & SVG fonts.

+Matej Ľach I think the word is not having a wide variety. it works for me perfectly.
I actually love it.
Most of my work is development related so all i need is a development environment and documentation. 
That works perfect for me. but I do get your point.

So, as some of you may know, I had a little GNOME rant recently and switched to #KDE
I am not yet done setting everything up, but here's a sort of WIP screenshot.
