L4L hosts a Live Chat with the KmyMoney folks

Filed under
Software

Come one, come all! On 27 June, 2005 at 9:30 pm CST, Lobby4Linux is proud to sponsor a Live Chat with some of the DevTeam of KmyMoney. This personal finance application is quickly becoming the “Quicken Killer” for Linux. We at Lobby4Linux have used this application extensively and find it to be not only complete, but pretty to look at not at all difficult to use. The DevTeam of KmyMoney deserve a rousing round of applause for their hard work. Lobby4Linux is happy to host these gentlemen and give them a chance to give us a peek under the hood and behind the curtain of this wonderful application. Please take the time to register at Lobby4Linux.com so you don’t have to wait in line come Monday. We expect a large turnout and we hope to see you there. Remember, this Monday, 9:30 PM CST at Lobby4Linux.com. The chat board is powered by X7 Chat and can accomodate everyone who is interested.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to a technical glitch within our PHP page, the confirmation email you receive when you register will have a blank “from” line. Many email clients see this and immediately deposit it in the junk or trash folder. If you do not see a confirmation email from L4L upon registration, check these folders. We are working to get this fixed as fast as possible.

I would also like to take this time to announce a new staff member of Lobby4Linux.com. Mr Tracy Kuhlman, AKA “Okie” has assumed the duties as Linux Technical Representative. Okie’s broad knowledge of Linux and his ability to communicate on the new user level make him a valuable asset to Lobby4Linux and we are proud to call him a TeamMember. If you get a chance, email him, Okie at Lobby4Linux dottt kom and say hi. Pardon the spam-trap email address. It’s a sad state of affairs when one must butcher the language in order to make a point. Wait a minute…I do that several times a week in writing my blog. Never mind.

Please take the time and drop by Monday night for our Live Chat with the DevGuys from KmyMoney and give Okie a shout when you get time. Both of those things will be appreciated.

It became a hub for containers by spearheading the Open Container Project and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, and it has pushed to make APIs self-standardizing. Now, it's kicked off yet another industry-wide open source initiative: the Fast Data Project (Fd.io). The idea of "an I/O services framework for the next wave of network and storage software" (per the Foundation) may not sound as vital as protecting core Internet infrastructure or making it simpler for Web server admins to support HTTPS. But on closer inspection, FD.io is in line with the Foundation's ambitions to nurture the future Web.

Education and Open Access

  • UNICEF Seeks World-Changing Open Source Technologies
    United Nations to fund startups to develop open source tech to improve the lives of vulnerable children and civilians
  • UCLA just open-sourced a powerful new image-detection algorithm
    Image recognition has become increasingly critical in applications ranging from smartphones to driverless cars, and on Wednesday UCLA opened up to the public a new algorithm that promises big gains. The Phase Stretch Transform algorithm is a physics-inspired computational approach to processing images and information that can help computers "see" features of objects that aren't visible using standard imaging techniques. It could be used to detect an LED lamp's internal structure, for example -- something that would be obscured to conventional techniques by the brightness of its light. It can also distinguish distant stars that would normally be invisible in astronomical images, UCLA said.

  • Open-Source Textbooks Gain in Push for College Affordability
    The standard textbook for Fundamentals of General Chemistry I at the University of Connecticut has a list price of $303. For students who use the version professor Edward Neth is preparing for the fall semester, the cost will be zero. An early adopter of open source textbooks, Neth said he turned to the new technology out of frustration with spiraling prices of commercial textbooks. "It's seeing the costs go up every semester and almost feeling powerless," Neth said.

Development News

  • New SourceForge Owners Start Trust Repair
    SourceForge Media announced the termination notice with a promise of other policy changes coming soon. DevShare was an opt-in revenue-sharing program for developers that was started in 2013. The program attempted to give open source software developers a monetizing stream by bundling selected software titles with the free downloads. It garnered negative reactions because projects hosted on SourceForge could bundle adware with project installers.

  • Data analysis of GitHub contributions reveals unexpected gender bias
    With more than 12 million users, GitHub is one of the largest online communities for collaborating on development projects. Now a team of researchers has done an exhaustive analysis of millions of GitHub pull requests for open source projects, trying to discover whether the contributions of women were accepted less often than the contributions of men. What they discovered was that women's contributions were actually accepted more often than men's—but only if the women had gender-neutral profiles. Women whose GitHub profiles revealed their genders had a much harder time.
