Clock App - v1.0 Ready to go!
Hey everyone! We just pushed the final commit for the clock app (approved by  +Michael Hall ) to release version 1.0! That's been a long time coming and I am glad to have finally hit the milestone. Thanks to everyone who helped us reach it. It has been an a...

Hands on experience with SIMONA flight simulator at Delft University of Technology. Really interesting to observe the behaviour of a human (well in our case a test subject) while providing only visual cues or roll motion cues.

The aim of the experiment was to understand the effects of roll motion cues on compensatory tracking tasks of pilots.

Had a really fun time! Now to the hard part: analysis and reporting the findings ;-)

I think it is high time Google+ provided support for nested replies. Sure the +mentioning someone works for now, but it gets harder to track a reply as the conversation size grows.

Keukonhof gardens are simply amazing. A must visit place if you ever come to the Netherlands. We spent about 4-5 hours in the garden looks at the different variety of flowers. Beautiful!

I used to frequently visit worldofgnome.org to read up on news related to Gnome Shell. Their posts almost always showed stuff that you normally don't find in other blogs since they build the packages straight from Gnome Git and hence it was new and hot stuff. But after their latest post by +alex diavatis, they have totally lost my respect. I mean seriously some of the arguments he describes in the post linked below is just ridiculous!

I like to specifically focus on some of his points.

1. Ubuntu 13.10 has nothing new to offer since 13.04. That was kinda weird, because 13.04 hadn’t either any exciting to offer over 12.10.

So according to him 12.10 and 13.04 did not offer much over 12.04? Are you freaking serious?

Why don't you go take a look at other credible sources like http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/ubuntu-1210-released-see-whats-new.html and http://www.webupd8.org/2013/04/ubuntu-1304-raring-ringtail-final-beta.html

I agree that Ubuntu 13.10 is not revolutionary but it is very stable and would lead to a much better, stable 14.04 LTS.

2. SteamsOS drops Ubuntu for Debian

You know +Bilal Akhtar is so right. We in the Linux community are more bothered (some delighted and some worried) about the fact that SteamOS is based on Debian rather than Ubuntu. We are idiots!!! Instead of rejoicing at the fact that SteamOS uses the Linux Kernel, we are more concerned that it isn't based on Ubuntu. Seriously *Grow up!!* All this bickering is not helping anyone.

3. Mir and Unity 8 are postponed after 14.04

First of all, no one claimed that 14.04 would be shipping Unity 8. It isn't Canonical's fault that you heard wrong.

As for Mir, they made a QA assessment if XMir is ready to ship in 13.10 and it didnt pass that. And 14.04 LTS is really not the release to be shipping something as huge as XMir. What's wrong with that? When Unity was introduced in 11.04, people complained about it being incomplete and introduced too early. Now Canonical learns from that and delays introducing XMir and everyone complains still.

+Michael Hall Maybe the word isn't right. But more or less all 4 points are valid. End even if I am wrong, then the fault goes back to Canonical. Do things better for communities and individuals. As it was used to be. 

+Nekhelesh Ramananthan 1. I don't exactly understand how I bash the Ubuntu. By giving 3 links, make a joke with Futurama, and saying that I don't consider Ubuntu to be as good as it used to be? 

2. Journalism? We don't do that. About Unity benefit the desktop.. Ok, lets have Unity 8 first ;)

3. Again. There is no alternative. Open Source in Desktop is one way solution. What else Valve could do?  I never said that Valve won't help Linux Desktop in many aspects. I said, that Linux will help Valve more. 
 
Today we had the final demonstration of the flight and simulation course. The objective of the course was to create a F16 simulation using a non-linear F16 model and demonstrate real-time distributed simulation with 4 other groups. So in essence we created a 4 player multiplayer F16 racing game :-)

Incredible! I hope one day I am able to build one of these. I already have one raspberry pi that I use as an IRSSI server that I connect to from my laptop. I guess I have another 29 more to go :-P
 
Wow.

A Raspberry Pi Cluster with 32 Pi's....   A parallel processing (almost) supercomputer for <$2000.

Want.
