+Duncan Mac-Vicar Prett This is very very mice and I like it. Good thing for new customers!

One more (last) question: Your channels are child channels (thus synced from yum repo)?

Of course +Fedora Project  and +openSUSE  Go packages are incompatible (go- vs golang-). Talking to each other is more expensive than sharing work.
(btw openSUSE's Go package is from April 2010, Fedora's is April 2013).

I just packaged it for openSUSE: http://software.opensuse.org/package/syncthing

"Syncthing replaces Dropbox and BitTorrent Sync with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it's transmitted over the Internet."

If it is not opensource you should not really classify it as zero-knowledge.

Ever wonder what it would look like to patch the Linux Kernel without restarting it?  Here is a demo video showing the newly developed kGraft -- which does exactly that.

Did +systemd had a feature to reload a service if a configuration file changed? what was it named?

Well, you can created .path unit to watch for file (PathModified=). When file change, you will need .service with "systemctl reload you-original.service".
Without intermediary you can only start service on file change, not reload.

Just replaced my +Raspbmc  (+XBMC) 256MB +Raspberry Pi with a 512MB running +Arch Linux. In addition to that I was able to configure Mopidy with +Spotify, which I can access/control with any MPD client. I am using GMPC on +GNOME, MPDroid from +Android for the music and Yatse for XBMC itself.
With +Spotify and the fact that we used +XBMC almost exclusively with  the TValacarta plugin to watch spanish programs and children series, I basically cut the need for the NAS (which anyway died a week ago).
As the +Raspberry Pi is connected to the Bluray player (with 5.1 speakers) via the analog output and the AUX analog input, I may explore using an external USB card to improve the sound quality. But right now it is good enough.

Oh, systemd is broken by design. The Andrew S. Tanenbaum's of the current decade?

In theory he is right. The same was said by Tanenbaum, and he was also right.
But in practice we are not seeing crashes all the time, or at least the trade-off seems to be worth it.
Still he exaggerates the size and complexity. Most of the systemd tools are separate binaries or services.

What is left inside adds some complexity but with useful features. That complexity may lead to crashes, but at least I have never experienced one.

Heute habe ich seine Rechnung bekommen (271€), für die Arbeit vom 12.11.12, wo sein Facharbeiter zum dritten mal versucht hat eine Ablaufrinne zu reparieren. Ich habe eine neue Eilochbatterie bekommen. Nach zwei Stunden habe ich wieder Wasser in dem Topf gefunden, der darunter steht. Am Anfang waren wir nicht ganz überzeugt, er wieder zu anzurufen, da er schon zwei mal versucht hatte die Ablaufrinne zu reparieren. Da es mit drei Versuchen trotzdem nicht geklappt hat finde ich unglaublich. Viermal darum zu bitten geht wirklich nicht. Ich bin am nächten Tag zweimal zu Obi (zweimal, weil ich keine Ahnung von Röhren habe) und habe zwei Dichtungsringe und ein Abflussrohr- Ersatzteil gekauft (alles 5€). Eine Stunde ahnungslose Arbeit von meiner Seite und seitdem läuft kein Wasser mehr. Wenn man mit drei Besuchen eine einfache Ablaufrinne nicht reparieren kann, muss man überlegen ob man den richtigen Beruf hat.

One of our favorite restaurants. Great seafood. The place is very original, as it goes over the beach into the water. The service is very good. You start to think you want more bread and the waiters will read your mind and come with more.

The service in this hotel is top-quality. When we arrived everything was prepared including children beds. At breakfast, our own table already had children seats setup. The building is nicely decorated and the rooms are beautiful. Free Wi-Fi. The only con was the area. It is 10 minutes distance to the center, but the street is like the Bronx of Brno, with lot of people just standing everywhere doing nothing and did not feel nice or safe to walk. However, the hotel is secure and has closed parking, including individual garages. As we only stayed one night, the area was not much of an issue.
