Farewell, Mr. Nimoy. May you boldly go to where YHWH is.

#LeonardNimoy #MrSpock #StarTrek
Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los ...

Building Scala Hygienically with Pants... +K.D.P. Ross​ will perhaps join me in noting the irony of a language with a complex type system having to depend on a Python tool, of all things, to get reproducible builds with known dependencies.

Awesome presentation by +Mark Chu-Carroll

On this topic I'd highly recommend Charlie Stross' Missile Gap, featuring a homage to Kafka in a character named Gregor Samsa

Oh, Lenovo...
 
Lenovo's new laptops include a program "Superfish" that makes all HTTPS browsing unsafe: https://eff.org/r.ym9y The company's clueless and factually inaccurate response, “at no time were consumers vulnerable—we stand by this today” will further damage their brand.
News broke last night that Lenovo has been shipping laptops with a horrifically dangerous piece of software called Superfish, which tampers with Windows' cryptographic security to perform man-in-the-middle attacks against the user's browsing.

+William Leemans yeah. But some flaws are oversight and some are intentionally put there. Big difference

I know they're not anti Google, but their claim on software and intellectual property is part excuses.

Where's my kernel sources +Xiao Mi​? And some other manufacturers are rolling out Lollipop already, you've only rolled out the +Xiaomi MIUI​ 6 OTA to Singapore ROM users now (still Kit Kat but hopefully without the buggy memory usage)

Bring on Linux 4.0 -- vote #2 !
 
So, I made noises some time ago about how I don't want another 2.6.39 where the numbers are big enough that you can't really distinguish them.

We're slowly getting up there again, with 3.20 being imminent, and I'm once more close to running out of fingers and toes.

I was making noises about just moving to 4.0 some time ago. But let's see what people think.

So - continue with v3.20, because bigger numbers are sexy, or just move to v4.0 and reset the numbers to something smaller?

Pulling this job without Steve's RDF leaves you cooked, eh...
 
Tim Cook sat down to dismiss all current "things called smartwatches" today, but then listed off the life changing things the Apple Watch will do, all of which Android Wear devices already do.

#android   #androidwear   #applewatch   #apple   #timcook  
You know why we spend so much time talking sh*t about Apple? It's not because of the products they make. Nope, that's not the reason. I think most reasonable human beings can admit that Apple makes really nice stuff (I personally own plenty of their products). The reason we take constant jabs at ...

Apt-get's handling of broken mirrors is much less usable than yum/dnf's, and hasn't been fixed since 2010 ...

+Michel Alexandre Salim yup, at work. I'm developing a "scaffolding" to inject 64-bit hooks into a very popular 32-bit game, to help fix that game's memory leaks by extracting its data structure into an in-memory SQLite database...

When I've finally made an MVP (Min. Viable Prod.), I'm gonna release everything as open source.

Went downhill in recent years. Too crowded and there's nothing to do but eat. Bad parking availability too. Nearby Kemang Village is much better.

Delightful hors d'oeuvres, though the tenderloin was... lacking in tenderness

The most authentic Spanish restaurant in Jakarta by far, serving a wide range of pintxos and tapas, as well as larger dishes such as paella. Came for brunch and would have to go back with a larger group to cover more of the menu!

Overpriced, badly prepared (though decently plated) food and drink, overly loud music with thumping bass reminiscent of a cheap club. This place banks only on its location on top of Jakarta's tallest building. If you're not an impressionable yuppie, avoid this place.

This mall has thrived amidst the ever-changing whims of Jakarta's upper-middle classes for over two decades - and no surprise, catering to most tastes, with everything from secluded bookstores to elegant boutiques to food outlets and cinemas
