My 2nd desktop is largely reserved for video editing. As it often the issue with video editing, storage space is getting scarce. The sata hard drive has 320 GB, and it's getting full. Time to purchase a new hard disk drive...

2011 - Has Internet TV really moved forward, can you really cut the cable?

Filed under
Just talk

Back in 2008 I wrote a blog post about the state of Internet TV at the time, which was fairly well received. nearly 4 years on its time to re-assess the state of Internet TV.

Since 2008 when Internet based TV was really just starting the landscape has really changed, gone in a large proportion of the examples I gave they were very much Windows focussed. However the device landscape itself has changed hugely since 2008. Mainly due to the iPad and Android platforms, what is available has become platform agnostic, which has made the whole concept of cutting the cable and going internet only far easier.

As a Linux user is this easier or harder than it was in 2008?

ChromeOS in VirtualBox

Took a little break tonight from compiling 64bit PCLinuxOS packages. I took a peek at ChromeOS in Virtualbox. Pretty much the Chrome browser with a login screen and additional settings. Wanna play with ChromeOS in Virtualbox then you can get a vanilla image from the link below.

That crazy puppy. He's such a nutball. Tonight he caught some kind of big *ss bug that started squawking when Fred chomped down on it and he ran all around the yard to try and get away from it. But it was in his mouth. It took him about 3 laps to figure it out. lol It was hilarious.

weirdness: puppy & wd-40

I have this puppy and I discovered a couple of weeks ago that he is terrified of WD-40. Then I forgot his intense fear and used it again this evening. So, weird. Why would a little puppy be so scared of WD-40?

What next?

Linux was an exciting journey till now. I used Ubuntu Hardy from its inception till the start of New year 2011. The "learning" part was not so great, as i later understood it, and assumed that it was meant for closing the windows and opening the door towards Linux-ification of the world. After pursuit of (slightly) bigger adventures, now I am high and dry.

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.2.3 MR

LibreELEC 8.2.3 is released to change our embedded pastebin provider from sprunge.us (RIP) to ix.io (working) so users can continue to submit logs to the forums through a URL without copy/pasting text or direct uploading log files. This is our preferred way to receive and read your log files so if you are not familiar with using the paste function please read this wiki article to find out how. The 8.2.3 release also solves an issue with continuity errors on USB DVB adaptors that has been troubling some 8.2 users for some time; kudos to user @jahutchi for tracking down the problem kernel commit. We also address a long-running crashing issue with Intel BayTrail hardware that needed some users to force max_cstate in kernel boot parameters, and for bonus credit users with an Intel NUC equipped with an LED can fiddle with the colours, as we backported the LED driver from our master branch.

Linux 4.15 Expected To Be Released Today, But It Might Be 4.15-rc9

After going through release candidates the past eight weeks, the Linux 4.15 kernel is expected to be released later today by Linus Torvalds. Normally after RC7, the kernel is baked, but all the changes last week due to the fallout from Spectre/Meltdown led to RC8. But this past week, the pace of change has continued with many fixes still coming in. We'll likely see Linux 4.15.0 out today as Torvalds commented last week, but it wouldn't really be surprising if overtime is extended and instead we get 4.15-rc9 due to all of the changes this week and ongoing work still happening around Spectre and Meltdown mitigation.
