Things not making the cut while moving this time:

- the manual for the Amiga version of the F16 Falcon game which was desperately needed because its difficulty was mind-boggling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falcon_%28video_game_series%29

- a C programming course published via Videotext on Austrian TV back in the pre-Internet era (I ordered the printed version once it was finished), nice bit about C gaining traction in the introduction text... edit: looks like there's an archive of the Teletext Computerbox online at http://teletext.orf.at/computerbox/index.htm albeit without the C programming course.

- a manual for version III of the painting program back in the day, Deluxe Paint. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deluxe_Paint

Skip this unless you're in for a rather depressing read, not that any of it is at all surprising.

Watching security fail in enterprise IT in real-time. At least that what comes to mind, looking at the "bad ciphers are less used on weekends" part of the 2nd graph "Next 7 (excludes top 5)".

As follow-up to the recent 'tcp ports above 65535 actually do work, in a way' post (see https://plus.google.com/+WolfgangKarall/posts/1M6roM1sW9B ), it's also to note that

a) telnet on Solaris likes them ports no matter how high (or at least I stopped at 458752000000000251203 when trying) and

b) postfix on the other hand doesn't, smtp exits with 1 when encountering such a high port and afterwards the qmgr delays for transport_retry_time (default: 60s) until processing any more mails, which might fill up the queue rather nicely.

Hmm, so in the mobile app +Google+​​​ now wants me to open the slide-out menu, choose People, then the Following tab, then the circle I want, then go into the top-right menu and choose Posts from circle, just to read posts from a certain circle?

Am I missing something or is this a bad joke?

Thanks to the Debian Wiki for mentioning the 'LogLevel' setting in a plain config file that can be changed during runtime while all other 'debug systemd' documentation (official or not) seems only to mention the kernel parameters.

Well, I guess some folks are obsessed with rebooting their machines.
Introduction. systemd is a system and service manager for Linux. systemd is compatible with SysV and LSB init scripts. It can work as a drop-in replacement for sysvinit. Systemd. Provides aggressive parallelization capabilities; Uses socket and D-Bus activation for starting services ...

Update: This actually works OK with Firefox, but Chrome is missing songs, is this some ploy to get me to install the Chrome add-on?

Update 2: songs missing in FF too, but not that many, and at least the album I'm interested in at the moment is complete.

I'm so glad I don't really depend on cloud services, because when you do, you're always in for some unsuspected fun.

Google Music doesn't show all the songs of the couple of albums I uploaded, nor the one album I actually bought there. At least not in the web interface, I can see all the songs on my Android device connected to the service.

Finding the files on the Android device is another challenge, because it's hidden in /data/data/com.google.android.music/files/music on my device (yay for lsof). And then, the files stored there are having generic names without ID3 tags.

Thanks for making it easy to download one of the albums and put it on my kids' MP3 player so they can listen to it on a car trip today.

Humans, like they know anything. ;) I'll see if I can find time, but it's low priority, since I don't really use the service anyway.

Hi,

does anyone know a way to trigger the same action as pressing 'W' in the video menus does (i.e. fetch metadata for the selected item)?

I'd like to add that as the last step to an export-to-video style user job.

Sorry about that +Wolfgang Karall, I meant to further explain that second link. I believe the "themoviedb.org" script is in the same location as the tvdb.org script  just named differently. I do not currently have a mythtv setup running so I cannot check.
