Bunnie really, really, really, gets it right: http://www.bunniestudios.com/blog/?p=4297
About a year and a half ago, I wrote about a $12 “Gongkai” cell phone (pictured above) that I stumbled across in the markets of Shenzhen, China. My most striking impression was that Chinese entrepreneurs had relatively unfettered access to cutting-edge technology, enabling start-ups to innovate ...

Hey folks, I'm looking for a job.

I'm a sysadmin/programmer, with 14 years of experience. I'd like a job either in Switzerland, or one that allows me to work remotely. I do not have good German at the moment, so being able to work in English is a requirement in the short term. My CV is available here: http://diamond.ichbinn.net/priv/plus-wae5sheB/stephen-shirley-cv.txt

If you know of any jobs that might match what I'm looking for, or even companies worth considering, please let me know.

Thanks :)

A very awkward issue for archives
 
In case you missed the story in 2013, like I did.

[…]For PDFs that were scanned with the named Xerox devices during the last 8 years (2005-2014), it cannot be proven what characters were on the original sheet of paper at the places that are now defined by reused patches. Therefore, these patches have no legal value at all. Please note that it is irrelevant if errors actually occured in a specific scan – the legal value is zero once it is proven that lossy jbig 2 is used.[…]

Upgraded my workstation to Fedora 21. A net gain given the experience of the last week.

Great move and, I hope, part of a broad trend: "Starting in January 2017, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will require all of the researchers it funds to publish in journals that are free for the public to read"
All research that the foundation funds will soon have to be free for everyone.

In related news, Nature will make its articles back to 1869 free to share to be read online but not to be printed or downloaded.

"possibly the largest bank theft the world has seen"
Hackers were apparently able to impersonate bank officials and transfer money.

I didn't realize the xchat IRC client was no longer developed (since 2010), and I just switched to hexchat following the simple steps at http://hexchat.readthedocs.org/en/latest/faq.html

There is a list of the major changes at:
https://hexchat.readthedocs.org/en/latest/changelog.html

First thing I did was to enable a dark theme which I prefer and which fits in with the trend of dark default colors in gnome applications

I'm using hexchat for about a year and it's slightly less horrible than xchat. Sadly, I'm not aware of anything better.
