Dammit Nimoy, that was a highly illogical thing to do.
Leonard Nimoy, whose portrayal of "Star Trek's" logic-driven, half-human science officer Spock made him an iconic figure to generations, died Friday at 83.

They need to put actual full color HD panels on this and install Compiz on it.

How's that for a "Cube workspace"?

Also, Arch Linux, FTW!

Purely selfishly, I'd rather see this with FitBit, but Jawbone sounds fun too.
Google makes investments in plenty of different companies through their Google Ventures division, and reports are surfacing that they may be on course to m

Story
Introduction
I currently develop server side software for a large pharmaceutical company. My department specializes in Reporting using a web portal and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. My personal role is Server Automation. I came to this job after working in IT for 8 years. Before that I worked as a software developer for 3 years, and before that I worked in IT for 5 years. I have a hard time making up my mind.

I started using Linux personally in the late 90s, and have loved it ever since. I am the owner and creator of Linux Rants. I’m also active in the forums of many technology sites where I can often be found picking a fight. When I’m not online, I’m spending time with my family.
