It's brand new, so if you're concerned, might run on a separate drive for awhile

Hmmm, seems GNOME shell's latest update broke my extensions. According to my tweak tool, the new shell is just too new. Reverted back for good measure--I can more about those extensions than the latest GNOME shell to be honest. My GNOME experience lacks without them.

Been having some luck hacking on ath10k firmware lately.  First, we are officially putting the firmware binaries on our web page, and have a modified 3.14.0+ kernel (source) that takes advantage of our firmware modifications.  For anyone interested, check out:  http://www.candelatech.com/vsta.php
and
http://www.candelatech.com/lf_wifi_ac.php

That second one is related more to our commercial offerings, but it does have a partial buglist which may prove useful.

We will update these as we make more progress, and I plan to spam social media (tm) instead of the mailing lists, so check the pages or check here for more updates.

Today's improvements include tx-rate reporting properly back up the stack, and much improved performance of VIF management due to fixing tx-credits issue in firmware (and backing out the hack needed for standard firmware).

An appeals court has ruled that a blogger is a member of the media for the purposes of defamation law — another decision that helps support the idea of protecting acts of journalism, rather than just specific people who are defined as professional journalists

Good for them, but i doubt they did it for the good of their people (since neither are known for that). More likely just anti US move.

If she hit my spouse, then showed this lack of respect...driving in the future would be the LEAST of her worries.

I'd make it my life's mission to ruin her life in every way legal and even a few gray areas for good measure.

Example: New job? Cool, here's a copy of this article for your boss and other employees. New partner? Same. Other more devious ideas come to mind.

Poor Kimberley Davis. The 21-year-old Australian woman was livid when she slammed into a bicyclist while texting late last year, putting dents in her car. The victim suffered a spinal fracture and would spend the next three months in a hospital, b...

Introduction

Matt Hartley was a co-founder of the ever popular and once iTunes front page featured podcast, Weezy and The Swish. These days, Matt works diligently as a consultant for Earth Networks (WeatherBug), proprietor of the largest privately owned weather station network on the planet. In between his duties at WeatherBug, Matt writes on Linux and Open Source projects for QuinStreet. For those looking to connect with Matt, he can be found on TwitterYouTube and Friend​​​​​​​​​​feed.

In addition to everything above, Matt works on a joint project with his wife called The Home Makeover Diva and provides volunteer services as an assisting project ​​​​​​​​​​coordinator for the WebcamStudio project. Matt also maintains this Website and everything that goes with it.

Previous to his online career, Matt maintained a successful computer repair business. Most of his clients were high-end, big spending home users that were tired of half-baked solutions from his competition. Matt retired from his computer repair business a few years ago as to pursue new interests on the Web.

Ubuntu/Linux

My experience with various desktop Linux distributions dates back to early releases of Red Hat, but really took off with early versions of Knoppix. From there, I traveled to Linspire 4.0-5.0, SimplyMepis 3.1, Debian and then finally settled on Ubuntu. Most recently I made the permanent switch to Linux Mint.

My problem solving and troubleshooting dates back to solving a Flash/Audio issue on Linspire 4.5 with a minor piece of code. Since then, I’ve offered up scripts, work-a-rounds and other ways to make the Linux experience as painless for new users as possible.

These days, I spend my time answering questions, writing articles and providing common sense solutions to problems that crop up for the casual Linux enthusiast. I’ve shared tips on selecting software, peripherals among other items of interest to ease the transition for newer Linux users.
