OSWeekly: Certainly another reason to consider when buying your Ubuntu PCs from System76 over Dell, it seems to me. Having dealt with Dell 'support' in the past, it's clear. It is the over-sized anchor on an already sinking ship.

richardfcrawley.wordpress: Much has been written about David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” action and time management system (GTD). Many websites have come into existence to help people organize their lives, projects, and time around GTD methodology. This installment of Lesser Known Applications for Linux provides approaches to getting things done.
kernelTRAP: "It took me quite a while to realize the real root cause of the VAIO - and probably many other machines - suspend/resume regressions, which were unearthed by the dyntick / clockevents patches," Thomas Gleixner explained regarding two patches for fixing suspend issues that Andrew Morton experienced with his VAIO laptop.

In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: A security fix developed for KDM, covering KDE 3.3.0 to 3.5.7. A KioBrowser data engine, HDD monitor applet, and general layout work in Plasma. More refinements in Parley (formerly KVocTrain).
useopensource.blogspot: I was on the Novell campus a few weeks ago attending the Utah Open Source Conference. One of the days I went to the Novell cafeteria for lunch. While I was filling my plate with food, a young man next to me asked, "So do you work here?". I replied with "No, I'm here attending the open source conference." A few seconds later I was hit with a question that I was not prepared to answer.

nzherald: For someone whose job suddenly disappeared on him, Auckland software developer Vik Olliver is on a high. Apart from his employment misfortune, good things have been happening to Olliver, a stalwart of the open source software community in New Zealand.
thelinuxmovement.blogspot: Awn has lots of cool new hover effects being created so I will demonstrate them all here including the cpu monitor applet.
linux-blog.org: Just a quick tip on how to remove the root user from the PCLinuxOS login screen. This should work for most if not all KDE based distributions.
liquidat: The Fedora development branch got a set of new packages: NetworkManager was updated to a development snapshot of version 0.7, and KDE 4 base packages found their way into the repository.
cinematical.com: In a two-part interview with TV Guide, George Lucas talked some more about those two Star Wars TV series he currently has in the works.

tech.blorge.com: Nicholas Negroponte has publicly expressed his disappointment at the lack of orders for his low-cost computer for poor children. The situation has become so dire that Negroponte will announce a "Give one, get one" promotion in the US and Canada.
realistanew.com: We’ve fixed the Intel driver so compiz+video works there unless you have a 965 (x3000 or x3100). If you have one of those compiz will refuse to start now. That is actually how we are dealing with most of the driver and/or hardware problems right now. We’re just blacklisting cards that have been known to have problems.
kernelTRAP: Jens Axboe detailed the changes in his linux-2.6-block.git tree that he plans to merge into the upcoming 2.6.24 kernel. Among the changes where the necessary updates to enable SG chaining which is used for large IO commands, "the goal of sg chaining is to allow support for very large sgtables, without requiring that they be allocated from one contigious piece of memory."

ubuntu tutorials: Today’s post is a quickie, and more along the lines of a “package of the day”, but I thought it would be interesting to share. The time command in Linux will offer you system resource summaries and total time taken to complete the job requested.
ruminations: The first and last line of defense is the use of common sanity. Unfortunately, there is no way to install that, not with #pkg-add-r comsanity or with #make install comsanity. It would be nice -from a sysadmin’s perspective or when you are the one in the family that everyone calls when there is a screwup.
