Linux

Maybe you have a smart lock or connected light bulbs, but if you really want to move closer to true home automation, you need a smart-home hub. Without one, you can’t do something like set up a nighttime scenario, where your thermostat lowers, front door locks, and lights turn off at bedtime.

Linux

The PICO-IMX6UL is the first product we know to adopt the i.MX6 UltraLite SoC announced last week by Freescale. Like its siblings, it runs Linux 3.x or Yocto, but it lacks their Android and Ubuntu support. Like the other PICO-IMX6 modules, the PICO-IMX6UL measures 36 x 25mm and plugs into TechNexion’s PICO-DWARF carrier board (shown farther below), thereby converting the COM into a sandwich-style SBC.

Five different ways to handle leap seconds with NTP

Filed under
Development
Linux
Red Hat

A leap second is an adjustment that is once in a while applied to the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) to keep it close to the mean solar time. The concept is similar to that of leap day, but instead of adding a 29th day to February to keep the calendar synchronized with Earth’s orbit around the Sun, an extra second 23:59:60 is added to the last day of June or December to keep the time of the day synchronized with the Earth’s rotation relative to the Sun. The mean solar day is about 2 milliseconds longer than 24 hours and in long term it’s getting longer as the Moon is constantly slowing down the Earth’s rotation.

Ubuntu: Didier Roche's Interviews Series and Resurgence of Ubuntu Touch

  • Welcome To The (Ubuntu) Bionic Age: Behind communitheme: interviewing Aaron
    I’m Aaron Papin and I’m from Trinidad and Tobago. I work at an IT consultancy that specializes in open-source solutions for SMBs. I’m a technician, but I also work in designing and deploying websites and even on ads from time to time. It’s pretty freeform and fun. I knew of Linux for years, but I only dove in after a hard drive failure a couple years ago. Because why not at that point? It didn’t take me long to start using it mostly full time (games). Even though I’ve worked on my own themes in the past, I’m still pretty new to the Linux community. Hobby-wise, I really like TV, cooking, video games and keeping fit when I’m not on an “extended break”.
