Game of the Day: Heretic

Filed under
Gaming

Penguin Pete: Heretic was a game which was based on the Doom engine and produced in joint cooperation by id and Raven Software. It has many improvements on the Doom games, including an inventory system, the ability to look up and down, a flying power-up, and lots of eye and ear candy effects. In my opinion, it's under appreciated.

Ubuntu and UUID

Filed under
Ubuntu

wolfger.wordpress: Ubuntu mounts devices with something called UUID. I’d never heard of it before, but it “just worked”, so I left it alone. It wasn’t a problem. Until I installed Gutsy Tribe 5 on my other partition. Gutsy decided that it needed to format my swap partition for some odd reason. Formatting it, apparently, gives it a new UUID.

  • Comparing Mobile Subscriber Data Across Different Sources - How accurate is the TomiAhonen Almanac every year?
    You’ll see that last spring I felt the world had 7.6 Billion total mobile subscriptions when machine-to-machine (M2M) connections are included. I felt the world had 7.2 Billion total subscriptions when excluding M2M and just counting those in use by humans. And the most relevant number (bottom line) is the ‘unique’ mobile users, which I felt was an even 5.0 Billion humans in 2015. The chart also has the total handsets-in-use statistic which I felt was 5.6 Billion at the end of 2015. Note that I was literally the first person to report on the distinction of the unique user count vs total subscriptions and I have been urging, nearly begging for the big industry giants to also measure that number. They are slowly joining in that count. Similarly to M2M, we also are now starting to see others report M2M counts. I have yet to see a major mobile statistical provider give a global count of devices in use. That will hopefully come also, soon. But lets examine these three numbers that we now do have other sources, a year later, to see did I know what I was doing.
