Mesa developer Iago Toral explains how the Linux Graphics Stack works.

Great read if you want to learn more about how X / Mesa and the Linux kernel interact with each other.
This post attempts to be a brief and simple introduction to the Linux graphics stack, and as such, it has an introductory nature. I will focus on giving enough context to understand the role that Mesa and 3D drivers in general play in the stack and leave it to follow up posts to dive deeper into ...

Xposed Framework Updated!

Unofficial update from the developer of GravityBox adds support for Android 5.1.1 and improves compatibility with most modules! (Sadly, and ironically, GravityBox itself isn't compatible yet..)

+HP Sells Ubuntu PCs, but Recommends Windows 

ಠ_ಠ
 
HP started selling Ubuntu desktops in Russia, they said they see an opportunity, but they also recommend to don't buy THEIR Ubuntu devices.. Marketing paradox ..or not :)

Seriously though, the whole HP / Canonical partnership could be very promising for Ubuntu on tablets and hybrid devices, that pre-installed OS really matters. 

Anyway, thats the all-in-one desktop if you are interested!

Our Curiosity Mars rover took a slight detour from its planned path for a closer look at a hillside site where an ancient valley had been carved out and refilled. See what was discovered, and pan and zoom to explore images: http://go.nasa.gov/1PvCrpF

An interesting read for Linux SSD users - or anyone who cares about filesystem performance.

(This mount option was introduced in kernel 4.0)

The Magnificent Horsehead Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: Data: Giuseppe Carmine Iaffaldano; Processing: Roberto Colombari

Sculpted by stellar winds and radiation, a magnificent interstellar dust cloud by chance has assumed this recognizable shape. Fittingly named the Horsehead Nebula, it is some 1,500 light-years distant, embedded in the vast Orion cloud complex. About five light-years "tall", the dark cloud is cataloged as Barnard 33 and is visible only because its obscuring dust is silhouetted against the glowing red emission nebula IC 434. Stars are forming within the dark cloud. Contrasting blue reflection nebula NGC 2023, surrounding a hot, young star, is at the lower left. The gorgeous featured image combines both narrowband and broadband images.

To think beauties like this exist out there that aren't even close to reachable by human kind, and that are thousands of years old, yet we are just now seeing this brilliant imagery.

Go full screen on this one, put on your headphones, kick back and enjoy mesmerizing views of our sun.

Over a six-hour period on April 21, 2015, our Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) observed a wing-like prominence eruption from our sun. SDO views the sun in various wavelengths of the extreme ultraviolet, including 171 (shown in gold) and 304 (shown in orange) angstroms.

Introduction
Hobbyist/freelance developer, with my tools of choice being C, Java, AHK, Python and Qt. Love working on embedded systems - using devices like the Raspberry Pi for home and vehicle automation (remote ignition, GPS tracking, car health monitoring).

Some of the software platforms I enjoy using on a daily basis: GNU/Linux distros (Arch Linux, OpenSUSE, CentOS), Android and its derivatives (OmniROM, Paranoid Android), BSDs (FreeBSD, NetBSD, pfSense), Illumos (OpenIndiana, NexentaStor), to name a few.

I love photography as well - currently using a Sony NEX-6 camera to shoot stunning scenic stretches across New Zealand.

I'm also a huge fan of Astronomy and Science in general, and I eagerly follow new advancements, and share them here on G+.

Not surprisingly, my favourite TV shows include: Cosmos, The Big Bang Theory, Andromeda, Star Trek, Stargate, Firely and the like. :)

Friendly staff but terrible food. This is by far the worst Indian food I've had in New Zealand, nay, my whole life. We were a party of 13 and we ordered a wide variety of vegetarian and meat dishes and were all of the opinion that every single dish was bad. The worst was the Dal Tadka, which smelt and tasted like it was stale. Paneer and lamb pieces were few. All the curries were sweet for some reason - they didn't taste like curries at all. No chilli in the chilli chicken. The entrées weren't bad (samosas /pakoras) but they were cold and the pakoras weren't crunchy. The mango lassi was good though, and so was the plain rice and rotis. The staff were friendly and they accommodated our needs so it's unfortunate that the food was bad. Perhaps it might have been catered towards the Kiwi palate, but if you're looking for an authentic Indian experience, stay away from Indian Leaf.

Excellent pizza. A little bit pricey, but worth it.

Best burgers in the North Island! Their vegetarian burger is pretty awesome too.

Their vegetarian pizzas are *the* best in town! Especially the Vegetarian Slingshot (with the Paneer topping) - so delish that even hardcore meat-lovers fall in love with this one!

I ordered some pizza and paid online by debit card, got a confirmation email too. When I went to pick it up, they said that they didn't get the order, because the manager wasn't there today. That in itself was ridiculous, I mean why do you need a manager to manually process online orders? Anyways, they said that they'll start making the pizza immediately, and it'd take about 10 minutes. I went back in 15, only to be told that the manager never received my order, and that I had to sort it out with Dine In. Seriously? The email clearly said that the order was confirmed, and I didn't have to do anything. Of course, Dine In won't answer any calls on a Sunday, and basically I lost my money, I was hungry and angry. I can't even get my money back from the bank because I paid via debit card. So basically I lost my money and you can bet I'm never going to go back there. It's a shame, I really like the food but the manager was less than helpful. If I were the manager, I'd have sorted it out for the customer no matter who's fault it was. Now they've permanently lost a customer, and potentially more, as you can bet I'll be telling all my mates to avoid Mediterranean Food Warehouse.

Music system is really bad. Speakers distort the music when played at loud volume. This was during Bryan Kearney's gig. Totally spoiled the mood.
