It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

Not the #1 we might want


According to the Harvard study said Arizona had the highest instance of illegal corruption -- "private gains in the form of cash or gifts by a government official, in exchange for providing specific benefits to private individuals or groups" -- when surveying nearly 1,000 reporters.

To determine the most corrupt states, the authors had reporters rank the instances they see illegal corruption in the different branches of government on a one (least) to five (most) scale. Arizona did not fare well in any ranking, especially the executive and legislative branches, where reporters said they see "very high" instances of corruption.

The most legally corrupt state was Kentucky

Legally corrupt?  Is that a thing?

Sure. Legally corrupt simply means that there’s no laws against the sort of bribery^wlobbying in question.

rnsgit: Command-line tool to help version songs with git

rnsgit is a Ruby command-line program to assist in using Renoise song files with git.

A Renoise song file is a zip file holding all the stuff. The stuff is a mix of text (notable Song.xml) and binary data (i.e. samples).

If you try using git with the xrns file itself git ends up making a copy of that file each time you commit a change.

It would be better to track the unzipped contents. To do that you would need to manually extract those files each time you wanted to record a change. If you decided to change branches or roll back to an earlier version you would have to manually rezip them to get the proper xrns file.

You can do all this by hand, but it’s tedious.

`rnsgit` was created to help. It’s basically a wrapper around calls to `git` and `7z`. You must have both those programs installed to use `rnsgit`.

The code is early. It seems to work. Please see the README for details on usage.

Haskell as a Javascript MVC framework

http://tonyday567.github.io/blog/mvc-todo/


#Haskell  
It's a bit rough around the edges, but I've found the mvc-todo project to be quite fun so far. It contains a coding of the todoMVC standardized app using haskell via ghcjs. The resulting todo list page looks just like all the others1, but hidden in this boring are some tiny slices of awesomeness ...

I give this bookstore double thumbs-up on everything, but this only makes sense if you know what kind of place this is. It sells used books and magazines, with a strong focus on The West. I would have liked to see a larger collection of sci-fi and graphic novels, but that's just a matter of personal taste. I was really amazed at the range of Western items, plus the collection of cookbook's children's books, and history items. If by some chance you're looking for a VHS tape of something you may just find it here, too. The owner is very nice; offered my wife and I some cold drinking water. BTW, there's no A/C in the store, so if you go in the summer it will be warm. There are fans, and I didn't mind the heat, but just so you know. I've been to a fair number of used-book stores, and many of them are just collections of whatever other people don't want. Reader's Oasis, however, has a much more curated feel. Note: If you don't already know, the owner is a naturalist. When I stopped in he was wearing nothing more that a big hat, an big grin, and a partial loincloth. I say more power to him, and I don't care what he wears (or doesn't ) but it's probably not what you usually see at a book store.

Horrible. Avoid. Overpriced and they serve junk. On the bright side you get a lot of that junk, but it's so poorly done it's almost laughable. They have no idea how to make a Ceaser Salad (hint: do not use vinaigrette); the shrimp cocktail is served pre-smothered in sauce; the linguini is a awash in over-salted cream sauce, drowning the flavor of the assorted bits of seafood. The crab cakes are mealy and weak. There are many other restaurants in the same area; hard to imagine they could be worse.
