Free JuiceSSH Pro Upgrades all weekend!

JuiceSSH has just hit 500,000 users and to celebrate we're giving away free upgrades to our Pro pack.

Just visit http://juicessh.com/500k for more information and to get your upgrade!

If you haven't seen JuiceSSH already, it's a free SSH client exclusive to Android with an optional in-app purchasable pro pack that adds a load of functionality. JuiceSSH was first released a year ago, and has since grown to be the #1 SSH client on the Play Store with over 80,000 downloads a month!

Thanks again all for making the Android community such fun to get involved with - we couldn't have done it without you.

A great business and technical summary of whatsapp
 
Good details of how WhatsApp got to over 2 million network connections per machine, impressive work:
"Optimization is dark grungy work suitable only for trolls and engineers.", I love it.

This site (http://htwins.net/scale2/) lets you zoom in and out on the universe, from the smallest possible length (the Planck length, the basic unit cell size of the universe) to the largerst. (The size of the universe itself) It's tremendous fun, and it looks like it's been improved some lately so that it's smoother to play with.

Three things really struck me while playing with it. First is that there is a largest and smallest thing on this scroll that was built by humans: the distance from Voyager I to the Sun on the large side, and a Buckyball on the small side. In a way, this illustrates the full range of human capabilities to probe the large and the small. 

Second is that when you zoom out, you keep seeing more and more structures at each size; but when you zoom in, you'll find yourself scrolling through a very long desert, from the sizes of the smallest known particles (top quarks) down to the Planck scale, where there's simply nothing. This is the realm where we simply don't know what's there: one of the tasks of high-energy physics is to figure that out. We simply don't yet have the ability to even see the stuff, much less build anything. It's quite possible, for example, that we'll discover that at one of these scales the universe's nice, simple, four-dimensional structure will fall apart, and we'll discover that we're actually living (for example) stuck to being within some short distance of a four-dimensional wall that lives in a much bigger universe.

The third thing is that one of the entries is "the total distance the Earth has traveled about the Sun." It's obvious that such a distance exists and could be worked out, but somehow it had never occurred to me before to think about the total odometer reading on the planet. (About 450,000 light-years, or about four times the diameter of the Milky Way, if you're interested)

Also, did you know that the Minecraft world is about the size of Uranus? I didn't know that.

A good example of some of the depth that Red Hat brings to OpenStack

It might be a repo of separate color schemes for different terminal types also as metioned at http://bugs.gnu.org/15992#14
I have already talked about it at g+. For util-linux we don't want to follow the current strange behavior when command-line utils have disabled colors by default, but distributions use shell aliases in profile files to revert...

+Sami Kerola not sure if sub-directories within terminal-colors.d is a good idea. It would be nice to keep it effective for utils, all in one directory means that one readdir() is enough to gather all configuration for the util... so termname should be a suffix, e.g. ls.disable.vt100

Cool, google have added a "breakout" game easter egg to image search. See the bottom of this link.
