The #Linux #kernel now has a "Code of conduct^h^h^h^hflict" . Got quite a impressive list of "Acked-by"s before going in.

""" This file tries to set the rational basis for our code reviews, gives some advice on how to conduct them, and provides an excalation channel for any kernel developers if they so desire it [ Let's see how this works ] """ – that's from the the merge commit https://git.kernel.org/linus/b0bc65729070b9cbdbb53ff042984a3c545a0e34 The actual commit is https://git.kernel.org/linus/ddbd2b7ad99a418c60397901a0f3c997d030c65e

ogv.js (Theora+Vorbis decoder in javascript) fast enough to decode video and audio on iPhone!  That is awesome.

I still have a very soft spot for Theora in my heart; it is not as complex as the newer-generation formats, and thus easier to encode and decode.

I must confess I still use Theora as my go-to for video streaming. The video encoder quality is very good for such a crappy format. It even beats many commercial H.264-encoders (though of course very far from /good/ H.264-encoders like x264).

Er so stolt over den store framgangen dei grøne har! :D  Spanande tider, å få inn noko nytt blod på Stortinget.  Hugsar kor positivt overraska eg sjølv var då eg sette meg inn i dei grøne for mange år sidan.  Eg kjende meg ikkje heilt heime i korkje venstresida eller høgresida. Tilrår alle å sjekka ut politikken vår på http://www.mdg.no/ . Det er meir enn miljø, meir enn enkeltsaker.  Dessutan har me /ekstremt/ god digitalpolitikk. Me er i sterk vekst, kjem ganske sikkert til å få minst eitt mandat og siktar på å nå sperregrensa(!) som vil gje eit ras av stortingsmandat.

I sent this post out earlier, and I'm answering in it.
 
Thanks for all the feedback on Opera Next for desktop. We are working on improving and re-introducing certain features.

With a new rapid release schedule (release early, release often), you'll see improvements at a faster rate than before. The current version of the tab bar and tab handling is an early implementation. We are currently working on adding more features.
 
To make sure we get it right we need your help. What tab bar/tab handling features do you think are the most essential?

There is resistance to change everywhere, but good arguments and better code should hopefully always win in the end. Now after Debian, I'm only waiting for Ubuntu to do the systemd switch. A common plumbing stack has lots of benefits.
 
In a comment on Chris' blog story that I posted here the other day +Adam Williamson posted something that really needs to be said more often:

"It's actually funny to read all the stuff about red hat, as if we were some kind of borg. I wish I could post the archives of the red hat internal mailing lists from when Lennart first started pushing systemd internally. Do you really think everyone said 'oh, he's @redhat.com so t must be fine"? Heh, no. Red hat does not work that way. Lennart also doesn't work by getting some senior management type on board and then having them ram his idea down everyone else's throat; he works by going into the trenches and convincing people he's right. You think a tech company the size of red hat doesn't have a curmudgeonly sysadmin contingent? All the battles that are being fought now with Debian were fought before with Arch, and before that with fedora, and before THAT within red hat. I have like five strata of the same old 'sysv should be good enough for anyone'stuff in my archives of various mailing lists, and every time, once people actually went and looked with an open mind at what systemd does and why, the majority got behind it."

Yupp, Red Hat is not a single person with a single opinion. In reality most Red Hat engineers were opinionated community members before they joined Red Hat, and they didn't check their opinions at the door. In most cases the discussions on things like systemd internally of Red Hat aren't too distinct in volume, noise or topics from those in the public community...

People have really been nagging me for pictures from the gokarting we did with Opera. I was very happy to be in the final race. In the end, I was ranked 8th of a total of 20. I think that's rather awesome and I never expected to be on the "good side" of the 10 :D

Been waiting to set duckduckgo as default search? Or missing pinned tabs? It's all in the new developer stream of what will become Opera 17 :-)

Jag är inte helt övertygad om att det hjälper saken rett mycket att kalla andra människor lata. Jamförelsen med historie och religionsutbildning kommer formodligen heller inte inspirera.  Dersom jag skulle vara tvunget att arbeta med något som inte har någon uppenbar praktisk funktion, kommer jag nog också tyckas vara ganska lat.

Det finns dessutan andra skandinaviska språk som vil vara mer användbara för östlendingar.
