  • Fedora 24, SourceForge’s Dilemma & More…

    It’s baseball season, and in baseball about this time of year talk turns to trades. Well, I’ve been traded for one game…er, review. That means that although I’ve downloaded and installed Fedora 24 on our test machine, I can’t really give it a full review here. However, I’ll make sure to point you to the review as soon as it goes up “on another network,” as Johnny Carson used to say. All I can tell you now is that so far it seems to do what it does well.

Reddit: Can you provide me a sound sample from your Logitech C920 webcam?

Sunday 26th of June 2016 04:54:50 AM

I searched on YouTube but I could only find audio samples from Windows. I would like to know how the built-in microphone sounds on Linux (raw sound), if you own this webcam could you please provide me an audio sample?

It would be very helpful, since I'm considering buying a webcam to use its microphone.

Reddit: Well-documented open source project employing C++?

Sunday 26th of June 2016 12:14:11 AM

I have been learning C++ recently just for fun, but my issue is that coding isn't particularly a passion of mine (as of yet). However, I am still interested in learning it.

I feel a great way to learn it would be to contribute to an open source project that's looking for help and is documented enough so that if I wanted to write code I could figure out where everything is (without having to annotate all of the libraries of the project myself to figure out how to implement a feature).

Obviously because this is /r/linux and I work exclusively on Linux I would expect this to be a Linux program. Any suggestions?

The Internet Without Connection, Free Endless OS For Emerging Markets

There are four billion people on the planet without PCs or access to affordable personal computers. That figure should surely be tempered with some contextualization i.e. not everybody actually wants to have an Internet connection and many traditional, native or bucolic ways of live do still exist on the planet. Regardless, there are a batch of global initiatives in existence which seek to give computer access to every man, woman and especially child. Endless OS is one such project. The free operating system has been designed explicitly to work in the expensive or restrictive Internet data conditions that often exist in emerging markets where fabulously affordable broadband has yet to arrive. The software itself is built to provide useful information and educational content, with or without an Internet connection. Read more
