What does "meh" mean?

re: meh

Usually it means like: "I don't know" or "I don't care" or "whatever" or "<shrugs>" ...something like that. In this case it probably means: I'm not impressed or it don't matter or it's okay.

re: Theme

I like it. Maybe a tad to simplistic/clean - but it loads fast. On a slightly different topic - who's Jose Rangel and why does he get the footer on every page?

re: jose

Cuz he made the penguin logo and header background for me that I've been using for ..how many years? He was a great graphic artist, made lots of wallpapers and stuff and posted them on kde-look.org, but then he just disappeared one day. poof...

you're always logged in, you could try one of the other themes listed on your account settings page if this one is too simplistic for your tastes. The one I had up this morning was kinda okay too, but I really like the clean look of this one for default I think.

re: new theme

The new theme should be called "whitefungus" since it seems to grow on ya.

Only "thing" that really bugs me is the difference between a "new link" and a "visited link".

For me (and my middle aged eyes) the difference between dark blue and black is very hard to tell apart.

re: visited links

Is that any better for ya Skip?

re: links

Yes - thanks for the quick theme mod work.

//unless you're just yanking my chain and didn't make any changes - but want me to THINK you made changes - so now I'm confused am I really seeing a change or should I just think I'm seeing a change. - it's budget prep month here so my minds firmly mired in bean counting muck.

re: links

lolol naw, I lightened the links and darkened the visited so they'd contrast against each other little more.

re: visited

Can you tell the difference now? Big Grin

I couldn't wait for you to come back to see it. Tongue

But I'll fudge around with em see if I can come up with something.

Your theme?

If anyone is missing a theme they used to use now, please let me know and I'll try to get it reinstalled. Thanks.

The First Vivid-Based Ubuntu Touch Image Has Been Released

As I have previously announced, the Ubuntu Touch development branch is based on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, while the Ubuntu RTM branch is still using Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn as code base, because it has already received stability improvements and will by default on the first Ubuntu powered Meizu phone. Currently, all the new features are implemented on the Ubuntu-Devel branch, the RTM one receiving only fixes. Read more

Security-Minded Qubes OS Will Satisfy Your Yen for Xen

It has advanced far beyond the primitive proof of concept demonstrated more than four years ago. Release 2 (beta), which arrived in late September, is a powerful desktop OS. Qubes succeeds in seamless integrating security by isolation into the user experience. However, comparing Qubes to a typical Linux distro is akin to comparing the Linux OS to Unix. Read more

Sad News! ;-)

So, XP is dead, “7” is dying, “8” is a zombie, and “10” is vapourware with nowhere to call home. M$ continues layoffs. POOF! It all falls down. In the meantime Google and the OEMs will crank out many millions of ChromeBooks. Canonical, Linpus, RedHat, Suse… and the OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux PCs. Several OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux thin clients. Android/Linux will reverberate with another billion or so units of small cheap computers(tablets, smartphones). This looks like good news to me. Read more

Android creator Andy Rubin is leaving Google

The move is, perhaps, not a total surprise. Last March, Rubin left the Android group and was replaced by Sundar Pichai. His latest project, as detailed in a lengthy New York Times report in December, was creating robots for a project outside of the company's Google X lab, something that dovetailed with Google's shopping spree of robotics companies. In 2012, there were also rumors abound that Rubin planned to leave for a stealth-mode startup called CloudCar, though they were vehemently denied. Read more
