VLC is not working properly on my system (Ubuntu 15.10). I have posted the details to VLC's forum: https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=130608

I have also posted it in Ask Ubuntu http://askubuntu.com/questions/731047/very-unstable-video-playback-on-ubuntu-15-10/731564

Logs and error messages are attached.

Any ideas what's causing this? How can it be fixed?

Thanks +Simos Xenitellis. I have already reported it: https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/16614

VLC guys think it is an Intel issue.

However in the meantime running VLC using vlc --avcodec-hw=vaapi fixes the problem.

In the meantime I will use the other players. There's another more critical bug related to Chrome that freezes the whole system. I guess I have to report that to freedesktop anyway.

Also do you by any change know the difference between xv, gl, gl3, etc in SMPlayer?

Cheers,
Behrang

Sublime Text is one of the most popular text editors for developers out there, but over the last year concerns mounted that the project was dead as development of the next version stalled completely.

This week, though, the app has come back to life with the release of a new update for Sublime Text 3. The release today brings a number of major bug fixes, introduces a new sublime-syntax and speeds up file loading. #programming

Dear Google Mail Team,

  I've said very nice things about your spam filter in the past, but I'm afraid I am going to have to take it all back. I'm currently going through the spam for the last week, and have gone through about a third of it.

Something you did recently has been an unmitigated disaster. Of the roughly 1000 spam threads I've gone through so far, right now 228 threads were incorrectly marked as spam.

That's not the 0.1% false positive rate you tried to make such a big deal about last week. No. That's over 20% of my spambox being real emails with patches and pull requests.  Almost a quarter!

I don't know how to even describe the level of brokenness in those kinds of spam numbers. There were a few pages of email (I've got it set up so it shows me 50 threads per page) where more than half of the "spam" wasn't.

Quite frankly, that sucks. It's not acceptable. Whatever you started doing a few days ago is completely and utterly broken.

It's actually at the point where I'm noticing missing messages in the email conversations I see, because gmail has been marking emails in the middle of the conversation as spam. Things that people replied to and that contained patches and problem descriptions.

They didn't try to sell me a bigger penis or tell me about how somebody is cheating on me. Really.

You dun goofed. Badly. Get your shit together, because a 20% error rate for spam detection is making your spam filter useless.

[ Edit: looks like it started four days ago. As of July 13, it looks like a big swath of lkml has been marked as spam for me. ]

[ Edit 2: final numbers: out of around 3000 spam threads, I had to mark 1190 threads as "not spam". So the numbers actually got worse: about 30% of my spam-box wasn't actually spam. It started around 1pm on Monday, July 13th. The problem really is that clear, that I can tell pretty much when it started ]

[ Edit 3: it wasn't just patches, and it's not just lkml. There were things like Junio's recent git v2.5.0-rc2 announcement etc. The new gmail spam filter hates any mailing list emails, apparently. In the time I wrote the last note, I got seven more emails marked as spam, two of which weren't. ]

"Directly proving their existence will not only give us a complete experimental confirmation of Einstein's theories but will be an important step towards the Holy Grail of physics: merging our theories of gravity with our understanding of the quantum world in a grand unified theory of matter."

I wish I knew Physics much much more. Sigh. #physics #science
Every single one of Albert Einstein's prediction about space-time have been observed, except one: gravitational waves.

For decades signs of gravitational waves have been sought without success. On Thursday, scientists believe the first clear evidence will be revealed #physics #science

As a programmer, I like to see Ubuntu phones, or at least Ubuntu tablets, that have 16GB of RAM or more.

Then I can develop Java apps, use Docker, run VMs, etc. on the same device.

Tablet-wise, something like Surface Pro 4 but with Ubuntu.

Mobile-wise, nobody has done that before.

A mobile phone with 3-4GB of RAM is not very practical in desktop mode when connected to a monitor for software development, CAD/CAM, 3D design and animation, etc.
