Found this recently at my favorite USB store in Akihabara. Yes, it's a crazy thing, and breaks all of the USB spec rules, and the text on the back says that you are on your own if you use this thing.

Which of course is why I bought it :)

Congratulations to +Chris Mason and +Jonathan Corbet. Jon has just been re-elected for another term as vice-chair of the Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board, and Chris has been elected to his first term as chair. I'm thrilled to have such solid leadership for the TAB, and am looking forward to the coming year.

Chris inherits the chair from me after I decided to step back from the chair role. It has been a very full year and a half, which I have enjoyed, but I also got myself a little overloaded.

Give a 30 minute talk all about how the kernel uses git, and everyone focuses on the 20 seconds where you mention you use quilt instead of git for the stable releases :)

Great video, about a community event that's still going strong today.

What's the German word for "the feeling you have when you complain about something, and it is pointed out to you that it was merely a copy of the same thing you did in the past"?  Surely there is one...

Here's a description of how user namespaces work and how to create them for unprivileged containers.  The reason I'm doing it is to create architecture emulation containers I can administer without being root, but they can serve all sorts of use cases

http://blog.hansenpartnership.com/unprivileged-build-containers/
A while ago, a goal I set myself was to be able to maintain my build and test environments for architecture emulation containers without having to do any of the tasks as root and without creating any suid binaries to do this. One of the big problems here is that distributions get annoyed (and ...

Lots of great information about how Hacking Team got taken down.  The footnotes are extensive and the whole document is worth reading for those who are interested in both how this type of thing happens, and for those who want to try to protect their own networks.

+Darren Hart , +Olof Johansson , here's the "lightweight" OS X hypervisor I've used to run Linux on top of OS X.  Works really well, and yes, does support virtio.

Supporting virtio is easier than emulating hardware, unless you've already got an emulator like qemu written for you. I'm not sure I'd call qemu lightweight though.

And developers wonder why users get mad at GNOME upgrades:

$ gnome-terminal --geometry=120x30
Option "--geometry" is no longer supported in this version of gnome-terminal.
$ gnome-terminal --help-all | grep geometry
  --geometry=GEOMETRY             Set the window size; for example: 80x24, or 80x24+200+200 (COLSxROWS+X+Y)
$ gnome-terminal --version
GNOME Terminal 3.20.0

{sigh}

Back to terminology for me...

Oh man, I haven't had to deal with a public relations GNOME thing in awhile.. I've missed it. Feel free to direct your flames/comments in my direction. :)

+Marc MERLIN posted a bunch of snowboard pictures this week that showed all of the long lift lines that he had to wait through in order to get good runs on fresh powder in the middle of the week at Tahoe. Up here in the Pacific Northwest, we too have "lines" to get good powder, here's what we had to deal with today at Mt. Baker.

Yeah...you don't go to a place like Northstar or Squaw on a Saturday at peak season. The lift tickets are expensive enough to justify a Wednesday sick-out (or whatever white lie you wish to tell!) to avoid the crush of humanity.

Seattle in the winter isn't always grey and wet, we've been having tons of sun lately, feels very odd.

Of course, if you mention it, you will jinx it, and the rains will return, but that means more snow in the mountains, a good thing...

Nice capture Greg...
though you could have moved the skyline to lower third or higher third for better visual effect.
