Feedburner is annoying!!!

I know a lot of folks use feedburner 'cause they either don't have feed software available to them or they like the way feedburner keeps track of who's subscribed and who looks at what when where... But for me their new links are pissing me off!!!

Look at this link:

line?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:
+linuxjournalcom+(Linux+Journal+-+The+Original+Magazine+of+the+Linux+Community)

At least half of these links are unnecessary and sometimes over 2/3, depending upon the actual link. This is bullshit. So, I spend 1/2 my day editing links now so that they look and act normal:

I was so annoyed earlier that I almost posted a "no more feedburner links at tuxmachines!" Big Grin

I wonder if sites have any control over this?

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
