That's what a proper race car looks like! :-)

Well, it looks like one, as opposed to the mainstay body shell of the racing class I'm in, which is... a Mazda 6: http://racepf.com/touring-car-190mm/mazdaspeed-6-regular/

Something weird happened... I made a release of Quadra. :-)

Fifteen years now!
Fifteen years (and a few months) after Quadra 1.0.0 was released, and almost 220,000 downloads of the open source version, there's a new version of Quadra! We're pretty terrifyingly bad maintainers, the last release having be...

+Michael Faille In the GitHub release pages, there's the "Source code (zip)" and "Source code (tar.gz)" buttons, in light grey. Those are automatically generated from git by GitHub, and are equivalent to just using git (it won't run any scripts, it's really just the files, in a zip/tar.gz).

The ones in green, though, are files that I made and uploaded.

With automake, there's a "make distcheck" that will build the source tarball, check that it can be uncompressed and built, all automatically. When it does this, it generates the "configure" script, among other things, so that you do not need to have autoconf or automake on your system (of which autoreconf is a part of).

I might have screwed up, but back in the days, you could do something similar to "rpmbuild tb quadra-1.3.0.tar.gz", and it would just spit out the binary RPM. :)

Is +Cleopatra Von Ludwig one of "those people"? I don't think so, but if I bought an S2000, I fear I might become one! :-)

If only it could carry our two Brompton folding bikes and a small piece of luggage, I'd be totally looking for one! I liked it better than the Gallardo I had driven a few weeks before!

I may be having more Italian.

But it's okay, there's no one on Google+ to find out. ;-)

I'm having crazy thoughts again... Thinking a Noble M600 is really what I want, but that this would do very well. VERY VERY WELL.

+Cleopatra Von Ludwig, I blame you! It's all your fault!

The Riley I finished fitting yesterday looked very nice, but this Corvette Daytona Prototype is stunning! I just put the wing on to see it, even without any decals it looks gorgeous!

If only +Cleopatra Von Ludwig could somehow put Tricksy in her luggage and go there... :-)

I remember clutching the door, thinking to myself, well, clutching the door isn't gonna save my ass if we follow those black tracks! :)

Did someone make an open source Nitix (albeit stripped down of its actual services, more like the Lotus Foundation that now survive, I guess) while I wasn't looking?

If so, that's kind of hilarious, in that perverted way.

Yep, it was pretty clear to me that we (well, credit where credit is due, mostly Avery) were onto the right idea with the image-based Nitix system. Really, iOS is based around the same basic idea as well (image-based core os, "apps" run in a highly restricted chroot). I suspect it'll take a few more years for the rest of the world to realize this, but the days of package-based Linux distributions are IMO numbered. They're a nightmare to QA and properly maintain.

The Ride4Pie happened, at the eleventh hour! +Jody McIntyre kicked me in the ass, and so we headed out: http://www.strava.com/activities/91766151

I got four apple pies (with "sucre à la crème", of course!) and an apple crumble.

The shop was pretty much wiped out after our visit, just a few apple turnovers left...

It's a bit on the small side for what we're doing there (radio car racing), but it works well, and is fairly easy to reach from Central London.
