during the transition to KDE framework on archlinux somehow the kio-slave for the fish protocol seems to have got lost.

while i've read some nasty comments much earlier, that 'fish' was a nasty hack, not a protocol, and should just die, i like it a lot. up / download speed isn't as good as when using SFTP, but it's much quicker when editing many small text files remotely, which i often do.

i used to be able to drop files from konqueror with a remote SSH / fish connection into kate and edit them. now i get an error message that the kio-slave for 'fish' couldn't be found...

i hope this is a temporary thing during the transistion, or is it, +Andrea Scarpino ? since the same thing happens when i connect konqueror via SFTP i tend to think it will be solved eventually.

very interesting from a web design / CSS point:
Responsive Pixels. 5 May, 2013 Pixels are easy to understand and visualise but using them can make it harder to create responsive designs. They also don't scale well in ancient browsers. Ems solve those problems but they are difficult to visualise and cumbersome to use without a calculator.

nice idea, but only on the very first sight:

apparently the old opera browser is making a comeback, or is being reinvented, or something. i used to like it a lot, and it's coming with the 'blink' engine (same as chromium), which is a good thing, too:

haven't installed it yet, seems a bit too empty for now, from the features description.

re. addons, i find all i need for FF as well as chrome, and this vivaldi thing is supposed to support chrome addons, eventually, but not just yet.

the new "black death" ?

if it's mother nature acting on her own, the laws of karma, or some nefarious plot of bilderberger / jewish kabala / NWO elite, this certainly looks bad. mostly for the people in africa at the momnt, but this could easily explode further i'm afraid.

but then, there's too many people on this planet anyway, aren't there?

jaiho, let's have another war!
It was not even a year ago when we were bombarded with messaging that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is a Supreme Evil and Grave Threat, and that military action against his regime was both a moral and strategic imperative. Now the Obama administration and American political class is celebrating the one-year anniversary of the failed “Bomb Assad!” campaign by starting a new campaign to bomb those fighting against Assad – the very same side the ...
