Reddit: Ubqiuti Networks still violating the GPL

Wednesday 9th of September 2015 07:05:38 PM

Update in case anyone is interested on

I was applying for a job at this company when I learned about this. They claimed the issue was fixed but request for source to specific binaries went unmet despite efforts made to create an appearance of compliance. Hopefully this is useful to someone searching for updates.

LXer: Google Fiber: Making the Competition Better

Tuesday 8th of September 2015 12:40:18 PM
The bean counters at Time Warner and Comcast lost their friggin’ minds, not just in Kansas City but in Austin as well. Time Warner began rolling out plans that automatically doubled a residential customer’s speeds, with absolutely no cost to the consumer. Not only was Time Warner promising this in Austin, even little Podunk towns like Taylor, fifty miles away, were getting the deal.

Reddit: Has there been a time when the Linux Kernel Maintainers *had* to break User Space?

Monday 7th of September 2015 12:31:03 PM

Or.. technically break something IN User Space.
Someone recently posted about Linus' rant at a Kernel Maintainer for introducing a patch that would really break things (as well as being bad code).
It made me wonder if there have been times when the existing code had been determined to be bad and the fix would ultimately break other existing programs, but still had to be done.

Reddit: Purism pledged 90K to their own librem 13 campaign

Monday 7th of September 2015 12:08:40 PM

Look at this: Then look at the live link:

There are only 4 extra people on the live version, at the time of writing. They are, according to those pages: Caroline T, Lawrence D, Morgan H and Todd W

3 of them pledged after the 90K surge. The first one before that is Todd Weaver, the CEO of Purism.


Surely, this violates the principles of a crowd funding campaign? The Purism CEO is cheating by pledging so much to his own campaign, surely?

Surely, this is unfair to other crowd funding campaigns?

Data indicates that Android picked up global market share from iOS last month

Tracking mobile web traffic, NetMarketShare computes the market share for mobile operating systems. Based on the data from last month, Android was able to widen its gap over iOS globally. Considering that the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus weren't launched until September 25th, the recently released phones accounted for a miniscule part of the data. The new models won't have a major effect on the results until the figures for this month are released. Read more

RapidDisk / RapidCache 3.4 now available.

RapidDisk is an advanced Linux RAM Disk which consists of a collection of modules and an administration tool. Features include: Dynamically allocate RAM as block device. Use them as stand alone disk drives or even map them as caching nodes to slower local disk drives. I pushed 3.4 into the mainline earlier this morning. Changes include:
  • Added ability to autoload RapidDisk volumes during module insertion.
  • Fixed bug in RapidDisk (volatile) volume size definition across 32 to 64 bit types.
  • Making use of BIT() macro in the driver.
  • Removed RapidDisk-NV support. It was redundant with the recently kernel integrated pmem code.
You can pull it from the git, yum, ZYpp & apt repos or download it from the SourceForge project page. To stay updated, you can follow the RapidDisk Google+ page.
