The government of Galicia (Spain) has made available three open source solutions over the past year, one for PC classrooms, one for land-management, and a third for computer network enhancement. The tools are available at Galicia’s software repository, and information about the solutions is now also available at Spain’s Centre for Technology Transfer (CTT).

Jaw dropped. Coca Cola really tried?

"Levy says the folks at Coca-Cola thought about converting the vending machines to take a dime. But doubling the price was too much. They wanted something in between.

So they asked the U.S. Treasury to issue a 7.5-cent coin. At one point, the head of Coca-Cola asked President Eisenhower for help."

That wouldn't have been a 7.5 cent coin but a 3/4 dime. 7.5 is too SI for Americans.

Flying from MUC to BOS. With a middleware colleague. Both booked Economy. He gets upgraded to business class. I am stuck in the cattle rows. Flying from BOS to MUC. With another middleware colleague. Both booked Economy. He gets upgraded to business class. I am stuck in the cattle rows. +Lufthansa doesn't like me, I guess ;-) But after 10 years of economy only, it's what I expect anyway. You get what you can afford.

Two #UberPop drivers in jail custody in France. Guess who DOESN'Thelp them? Yep. Uber. That's the "sharing" economy in a nutshell. http://www.europe1.fr/faits-divers/uberpop-deux-chauffeurs-en-garde-a-vue-a-paris-1361708

UPDATE Now it gets confusing. +The Guardian claims two managers from Uber and not drivers were arrested. http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jun/29/uber-managers-detained-france

UPDATE 2 It seems to be two different stories. So 2 drivers and 2 managers in custody.

The CEO of Uber France and the General Manager are under arrest. (other sources have released the names). The articles i just read also make note of the contention that Uber has been paying the fines levied against drivers in France as a way to circumvent the law.

If that last bit is true sure sounds like an invitation to be arrested.

Today Captain Obvious rules the financial markets after Greece had to pull the emergency brakes. And the hardcore austerity proponents claim to be surprised. The one word for that is "duh".

+Tilman Baumann +Simo Sorce well, from the very begginning they knew the government had been elected under the premises of no more outside imposed austerity rules.

Did you guys read what was refused by the EU? And the IMF? Things like increasing taxes on banks and other companies, luxury, spending less on defense.

Things like these were rejected (not welcomed with a "nice, but not enough", rejected...).

Then they imposed raises in purchase tax (which usually companies escape legally and easily but which the consumer has no choice but paying), cuts in the lowest pensions.

I agree that a referendum should be done a month sooner, but so should the ultimatum, two played that game, not just Greece, but only one of those two was duly elected, the other is... well, not acting very democratically.

Meanwhile, the IMF made billions in profit with the Greek loans.

Because separation of state and church doesn't exist in Texas? And the Supreme Court has no power?

Texas attorney general says county clerks can refuse gay couples

(Reuters) - County clerks in Texas who object to gay marriage can refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite last week's landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling requiring states to allow same-sex marriage, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said on Sunday.

+Sakari Maaranen Yes, I try to be brief because all my life I've been accused of prolixity. Plus, people don't read long posts anyway.  ;-)  But perhaps I carried it too far the other way.
