Doesn't seem to work with Android 6.0? On a Nexus 6, the app is there running, but it has no effect...

Disabling filter translucent navbar does the trick, but the filter is not applied in the navbar.

But uninstalling and installing again fixes completely the problem, now Twilight works as usual... 😁😁

Regards!!

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!

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!

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/

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.

Very good food, worth it, and excellent service.

Very impressive, even though the current caldera is only a "smaller one"! You can see some remains of the bigger caldera on the first part of the walk from the entrance of the park, as well as a massive solidified lava flow. There isn't much activity at all in the caldera, just some fumaroles (this isn't an Hawaiian volcano, if you see lava at Vesuvius, it's time for prayers!). Rather dusty and rocky, good shoes recommended, but I've seen people doing it in sandals, might just be less comfortable. Guides are available, included in the entry, can be nice to answer questions, such as " what are those metal cables?". Entry is €10, but there are other costs, such as parking (€6 nearest the top, can be full). There seems to be many access options, from coaches starting in Naples and other cities, to big all-terrain buses, starting from near Pompeii (I believe), as well as shuttles from lower parkings.

Recently reopened (June 2015), quite nice, a bit emotional for an Alfisti... :-) Visited it in about an hour, but could take longer if done "properly" (we arrived near closing time). Not readily accessible by public transportation, €20 by taxi to get there from the Rho Fiera train station, and about €30 (they charge extra for despatched taxis) on the way back!

Nothing amazing, but a nice dinner for the price, in a charming setting. Ask for the wine list, for some reason, if you just ask for wine, you get the house wine, but they have some nice bottles of local wine!
