This could become a trendy thing in some circles.
Attention Starfleet! You can now communicate like a member of the USS Enterprise with the ThinkGeek exclusive Star Trek TNG Bluetooth ComBadge. ThinkGeek’s website states, “We've had a screen-accurate prop replica ST:TNG badge in our closet for a while. The only thing it was missing was the ability to emit the classic communicator chirp

So anyone here play Star Trek Online? I think Chris said he did a few weeks back, but knowing my memory, that may not be true. Reason I ask is I'd like to create a fleet of Linux users. (in that game, guilds are called fleets)

It's really buggy under Ubuntu 16.04.1 I've seen it has better support under Arch.

Yes Chris plays... He had an entire podcast devoted to it (STOked) which ended after a few years. I would recommend it, however, despite it being a great show, the game dynamics have changed so much since it ended...very little if any of it is still relevant.

Hi,
I'd be interested in hearing about the difference between the different kinds of SSL certificates. You have like those really expensive gazillion dollar Verisign SSL certificates on the one end, and then there's Let's Encrypt on the other end. So Let's Encrypt is easy: there's only encryption, no authentication. But how about the other ones? What's the difference between a $20 per year and a $2000 (or more) per year certifcate?

In this video, I show how to manage your applications and app Jumplists on GTK based Linux Distros using a great menu editor called MenuLibre.

I need some opinions from all of you. This is the current state of my RSS feed plugin in CafeSync. It looks basically the same on the phone btw. What I'm trying to decide is whether to only show the most recent post, or have it show all the posts that are in the RSS.

What do you guys think? Also I'm linking to the main site's RSS feed I'm sure it would be overwhelming.

Are Keyboard Layouts Important?

Myself and others have noticed a recent trend towards manufacturers using non-standard keyboard layouts especially in regions outside of the USA. For example in the UK laptops often have US physical key placements with UK keycaps resulting in the single row/half height enter key and misplacement of the \ key.

Do non-standard keyboard layouts affect which laptops/keyboards you are likely to purchase?

A. Keyboard layout doesn't bother me, I can swap between layouts without issue

B. Non-standard keyboards, such as a US layout with my country's keycaps (eg. a half height enter key on a UK keyboard) would affect my choice of keyboard/laptop

C. I wouldn't buy a laptop/keyboard unless it had my countries standard layout

So I've started a thing, while I look for a new gig. I call it Vague Entertainment's "App A Week" series. Its a community driven programming series, where I test my programming, and design skills by giving myself a week to create a working application. I'm using all Open Source software to create the applications, and distribute the mobile versions on Ubuntu Touch and Android. However, I have to dance with the devil to get it on iOS.

The site is new and were are on the downhill side of "Update week" which happens every 4 weeks. Love to get your opinions, thanks in advance.

Num-Nom was a request from to very special boys that wanted me to make a game. But what can be done in one week? NN-ss6 nn We created a motif, the “number cookies” and the little creature, and several bad guys to face that make the number search more than just math practice.

I'm curious, how many people here play table top rpgs? Like Pathfinder, D&D and the like? And of those how many would like a Ubuntu / Linux first tool to help play the game?

I ask because I'm already working on one, and my non linux using friends are complaining because I'm developing it more for Ubuntu (Using the SDK) than I am for Windows.
no plus ones

me and my sons play DnD 3.5E and they like paper well enough, but they've migrated in their Magic cards to doing "online try-outs." I've tried PCGen and it appears to be a useful D20 java application, but on modestly-powered hardware PCGen seems really slow. Most PC generator apps I've searched for are oriented towards android/mobile, but I have yet to see good NPC generation utilities out there that are useful for quick encounter generation.

A helpful utility for me as a DM would include: domain-appropriate CR-level random encounters with appropriate treasure (these are often two different mobile apps, random treasure for goblins v mummies can be entirely different,e.g.) And a way to quickly create some NPCs with battle stats and spells. Picking spells out for NCPs is terribly tedious. Having well crafted 3x5 cards of situational spells is useful, but that takes a lot of time to craft (not a great time option for a computer programmer with three kids).

Have you tried talking to people in /r/DnD on this topic?

Windows 95 on an Apple Watch isn't exactly practical, but it looks like a fun way to relive the 90s on your wrist.

Anyone here know of a USA based group that refurbishes old computers with Linux to be given to underprivileged people? I've students who are too poor to buy their own laptops and have been refurbishing old laptops that are no longer being used to be given to them.

Obviously I can't keep this up forever without a constant supply of old hardware. Any help is appreciated.
