Hey all, I was just wondering whether it would make sense for pulse audio to use the upcomming SCHED_DEADLINE feature to better model the realtime requirements of audio.
It seems like this would be a nice match for getting audio samples in at the right update rate without risking overloading the system which is much easier with the old realtime scheduling.

Congratulations to China for the first soft-landing on the moon after what has been an awfully long pause of lunar ground exploration lasting 37 years!

Looks pretty nice, if I ever use a spreadsheet software instead of just coding calculations I guess it will be this.
 
One of my favorite Google products Google Sheets has been rebuilt from the ground up! It's even faster, supports larger spreadsheets, has a number of new features, and works offline.

Try it out at http://g.co/newsheets.

A friend of mine found this luxury version of a Raspberry Pi case on Kickstarter, it's a bit weird when a case costs nearly twice as much as the computer it houses but hey it looks cool

So this is just totally showing off but it's still some amazing engineering. The SpaceX grasshopper flying to nearly 800 m and then back to a soft touch down all filmed by a hexacopter.

Wow, this really makes me smile :-) It's just a book but the artwork already looks quite amazing and it's great seeing such a positive attitude towards technology in a time like this. It's that gleaming look of wonder and curiosity instead of fear that will let us use our technology for good.
 
Hello Ruby - A Children's Book Teaching Kids To Code

I just donated to this incredibly successful kickstarter campaign. Congrats +Linda Liukas! We keep seeing more and more of these types of materials (Goldieblox anyone?). There is a HUGE hunger (and market) for  accessible materials for kids to learn how to code. When thinking about your projects, start-ups, etc you might want to consider how you would get kids involved, or how you would explain your project to a young person. Then consider how you might transform your knowledge into something creative to pass-on to young people. I feel the more we take it upon ourselves to transform our work into creative teachings the more long term sustainability we'll create for the tech industry.

The Kickstarter-funded book, which aims to teach programming principles to children, reached its $10,000 funding goal within hours of its launch, and 24 hours later had amassed $100,000 in donations. The project hit the $200,000 benchmark Jan. 28, with 24 days to go in the campaign."This is a book to get kids excited about technology and affect the way they perceive technology as they grow up," she says.

The world of programming, Liukas tells Mashable, is perceived as cold, logical and machine-based. But Liukas feels quite differently. She sees in the coding world a universe of creativity and playfulness beyond ones and zeroes.

So I guess the Queen of England was in a present giving mood today, 61 years after his untimely death Alan Turing has finally been pardoned. This is only a symbolic gesture of course but still it gives me hope that progress is indeed possible.

With that I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Wow, this is big news as in few people see it now but it might just be the Ford moment of this century.

This place has terrible service and it's overcrowded beyond any safety margins. Me and two friends let them store our jackets and when I tried to get back only one of them (having all 3 bons) to leave earlier the servicing person refused even when offered a generous tip and I had to walk home in pretty cold weather.

Finally found good coffee after almost a week of on average really bad coffee that was strong but extremely lacking in aroma. The French press for two with blend selection is such a relief and the price is fair too.

Beware there are no power sockets or free wifi at the gate! In this day and age I would consider that an essential part of airport infrastructure more important than all duty free shops and cafés combined so that means 1 star rating.

Only had a raspberry lemonade bit it was certainly delicious. Everything seems to be organic too.

Wonderful park with beautiful small lakes and streams. Great place to relax, the only negative thing I can think of is the sound of the trains going by.

Keeping in mind the low prices (5.20 € for a Schnitzel) and it's really nice on campus location, this place is pretty awesome. Of course you should not expect "Haut Cuisine" but the food was pretty decent and at that price simply unbeatable. They also have a selection of all essential types of beer and other beverages so there is nothing holding you back from spending a very nice evening here.
