Has anyone worked with netatalk? I'm wondering if I can utilize linux, netatalk, and kerberos, to share netapp storage to OS/X machines using AFP?   #netatalk   #netapp   #afp

In my experience NFS was always the path of least resistance. Why would you want to add so many layers of complexity? What's your goal?

CLICK THIS LINK (the video below is a dead link): Rubik's Cube: A question, waiting to be answered

Google, hands down, has my favorite advertisements...the Pakistani/Indian Search Story, for example.

This one is great!! And, although it's Google, they're really just "advertising" for a better future and the excitement involved in discovering, creating, answering questions, and how generations build the future.

Side note: My highschool math teacher was way into puzzles, Rubik's cubes of all sorts, and fractals. I owe a lot to him, teaching me math doesn't totally suck...it's actually beautiful, fascinating, and can even be fun.

Pakistani Musicians Play Amazing Version of Dave Brubeck’s Jazz Classic, “Take Five” http://cultr.me/SMAzD0” 
How's this for fusion? Here we have The Sachal Studios Orchestra, based in Lahore, Pakistan, playing an innovative cover of 'Take Five,' the jazz standard written by Paul Desmond and performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1959.

+Accounting Xero's (Cloud - hehe - accounting) #skytypers  advertisement over head in San Francisco...

I only saw it at the end and didn't see the plane delivering such a well crafted smoke message. I then noticed they repeatedly retyped this in a huge circle around the city. #awesome

Band releases their album as a Linux kernel module
http://adafru.it/djB

Cycles Per Instruction have released their album as a Linux kernel module… via bandcamp:

Cycles Per Instruction combines free improvised performance with software programs that the band wrote to create sound in novel ways. When all is said and done, the computer ends up being a 4th improvising member of the band, fed by data and expressing sound via algorithms.
From their GitHub repository:

Welcome to the most unnecessarily complicated netcat album release format yet.

In this repository, you will be able to compile your own kernel module, create a /dev/netcat device and redirect its output into an audio player (tested with mplayer and play from SoX as well).

This repository contains the album’s track data in source files, that (for complexity’s sake) came from .ogg files that were encoded from .wav files that were created from .mp3 files that were encoded from the mastered .wav files which were generated from ProTools final mix .wav files that were created from 24-track analog tape.

If complexity isn’t your thing, you can go to our webpage and follow the links to a digital download or a cassette tape of our album.

Here's a good story:

I accidentally wiped a Windows 7 partition when installing Ubuntu 14.04 beta for a neighbor friend of mine...whoops :P

I then setup Ubuntu. Logged in to Chrome, Chrome synced and my neighbor was hardly aware the computer was different. Sure, no more iTunes....you use Rhythmbox...etc. But, it's as if only 5% of the computer experience changed, even though the majority of the computer itself changed.

This is the perfect argument for a Chromebook! For people who do 95%+ of their computing in the browser and sync with Chrome, why have Windows as your OS?...no real reason. #thatisall  

Thanks +Google Chrome

One of my favorite places to stop at and have some tasters with a friend. Always a fun time and almost always something new to try and learn about. Informative and friendly staff. Nice vibe, lots of natural light.

Fantastic whole chicken...yummm! Great tomato salad and good broccoli. Very happy and friendly staff. Didn't get multiple desserts, but I did take a pint of their vanilla custard ice cream to go :-D Also, a nice end to a Coit Tower --> Filbert Steps --> Levi's Plaza --> Fog City outing.

Small outdoor area, nice to stand or sit and chat. I went for a meetup so the food was specific to that event but it was good stuff. Nothing too special as far as beer selection. Nice place, would go back.

Great beer selection. A little overpriced, but convenient to be able to get a great beer with a decent burger. Happy they moved in the neighborhood. They have ~10 beers on tap and MANY bottles to choose from. ... Unfortunately, this location has now closed.

On the smaller side, but I've never not been able to find what I need. Good location if you like exercise and live on the other side of the hill. The more TJs the better. Friendly and helpful staff. Indoor parking garage, yes!

Went to a meetup here. Nice place, interesting to walk around. I enjoyed the artwork and there was plenty of space to have fun and work. I would recommend this place for meetups or other smaller-medium gatherings.

Night life was a lot of fun. Been twice. I did realize I like the "Underwater Forest" better during the day, with plenty of lighting, compared to the night. Well worth coming for day and night experiences.
