  • 6 open source tools for data journalists

    Note: This post was originally published on July 29, 2014 at Opensource.com. When I was in journalism school back in the late 1980s, gathering data for a story usually involved hours of poring over printed documents or microfiche. A lot has changed since then. While printed resources are still useful, more and more information is available to journalists on the web. That’s helped fuel a boom in what’s come to be known as data journalism. At its most basic, data journalism is the act of finding and telling stories using data—like census data, crime statistics, demographics, and more.

  • A pile of reasons why GNOME should be Debian jessie’s default desktop environment

    7 Aug 2014 | 2:58 pm
    GNOME has, for some reason or another, always been the default desktop environment in Debian since the installer is able to install a full desktop environment by default. Release after release, Debian has been shipping different versions of GNOME, first based on the venerable 1.2/1.4 series, then moving to the time-based GNOME 2.x series, and finally to the newly designed 3.4 series for the last stable release, Debian 7 ‘wheezy’. During the final stages of wheezy’s development, it was pointed out that the first install CD image would not longer hold all of the required packages to…

    I've been in A Coruña for this year's GUADEC since Tuesday night, and it rocked. I did a late registration after my first week at Collabora, which is sponsoring my stay here. I came one day early to participate, as Debian's representative, at the yearly GNOME Advisory Board meeting, for the first time. It was a positive experience, which helped me get a grasp of the “big picture” of what the GNOME Foundation does. I also had the pleasure of visiting Igalia's awesome offices in the city, and puting faces to many names during the meeting. I presented an overview of Debian's relation to…
  • Season of change

    15 Jul 2012 | 1:45 pm
    It feels like I'm sitting in a roller-coaster wagon. There's probably too much change going on for me to assimilate naturally. In particular: I just wrapped up (well, mostly) one of the toughest Uni semestres. I had to deal with lots of very time consuming assignments, and then the usual round of final exams. Even if this semester I got the best marks in my journey (or shall we say Via Crucis) through University, I still managed to fail one exam, for the Advanced Networks subject, which is quite annoying, given I got high marks (even the highest in one case) in other subjects I really don't…
  • GNOME 3.4 in wheezy

    3 Jun 2012 | 12:47 am
    Users of Debian sid will have noticed: the final (and interesting) bits of GNOME 3.4 have landed and if all looks as good as it does now, they should migrate to wheezy in about a week. 3.2 → 3.4 hasn't been as complicated as the previous horrible transition, but still had some complications due to Cogl/Clutter incompatibilities. Other than that, our major problem has been manpower, but this isn't new for many other Debian teams. We've also seen new incarnations of “Linux-only technology is now mandatory” which makes our lives a bit more miserable due to kfreebsd-* and hurd-i386, but for…
  • GNOME 3.4

    29 Mar 2012 | 2:50 pm
    The GNOME project released today GNOME 3.4, the second major update to the GNOME 3 platform. Congrats! I know there's lots of polish and improvements to some of the major rough edges in GNOME 3.2, but I think that of all changes in this release, Epiphany really stands out, as you can see in blog posts by Xan and Diego. Work to bring GNOME 3.4 to Debian wheezy users has been underway for a few weeks already, and some bits and pieces have been hitting unstable since the tarballs were released a pair of days ago. We still need more base work to be done before some exciting components like GNOME…

It took the idea behind Lego to teach computer programming by playing first-generation computer games. Kano launched on Kickstarter in November 2013. More than 13,000 people from some 50 countries raised $1.5 million in 30 days. Barely one year later, Kano is getting ready to deliver 18,000 preordered kits purchased for $129 each. The idea behind Kano Blocks came from the then 6-year-old son of cofounder Saul Klein.

As a result, the bikes tend to collect in a few places, which is a drag for users and a costly problem for the operators, who “rebalance” the system using trucks that take bikes from full stations to empty ones.

    Duplicate files may seem harmless to many computer users. If only users knew that these files causes more trouble than good. They eat up hard disk space and system resources, further slowing down your computer. Before you will even know, your large 1 TB or more hard disk space gets filled up. All of these unneeded files causes chaos and increases disorganization in your computer system. Recently, I started facing this inevitable issue myself.

  • Six Advantages of Choosing Linux over Windows

    27 Aug 2014 | 4:08 pm
    Linux is a computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distribution. It has many advantages over Windows and some of which are listed below.1. Cost: Linux is a freely available operating system whereas Microsoft products are available for a hefty sum. Linux can be installed on many computers but Microsoft licenses are allowed to be installed only on a single computer. 2. Security: The internet is highly useful for each of us, but it is vulnerable to virus attacks. The security aspect of Linux is much stronger than that of the Windows.

I was in awe that you could get a "free" operating system without having to pay for it. The system didn't hold my attention long because there were not a lot of applications for it that were similar to the Windows programs I was accustomed to. Along comes Fedora and in 2004 I picked up a book called Linux for Non Geeks by No Starch Press which included a copy of Fedora.

  • 6 open source tools for data journalists

    Scott Nesbitt
    27 Aug 2014 | 3:16 am
    Note: This post was originally published on July 29, 2014 at Opensource.com. When I was in journalism school back in the late 1980s, gathering data for a story usually involved hours of poring over printed documents or microfiche. A lot has changed since then. While printed resources are still useful, more and more information is available to journalists on the web. That’s helped fuel a boom in what’s come to be known as data journalism. At its most basic, data journalism is the act of finding and telling stories using data—like census data, crime statistics, demographics, and more.

Although the tech press hailed Keep as a potential killer of Evernote (arguably the most popular note taking tool around), it’s not quite that. And many people have been staying away from Keep out of fear that it goes the way to such Google services as Google Notebook, iGoogle, and Google Reader. Enter…

    In Linux , It's a security concern for us  to allow anyone  to reboot the server using  Ctrl-Alt-Del keys. It is always recommended in production boxes that one should disable reboot uisng Ctrl-Alt-Del keys.   In this article we will discuss how can we disable reboot via above keys in RHEL & CentOS   For RHEL 5.X & CentOS 5.X To prevent the init process from handling Ctrl-Alt-Del, edit the file  '/etc/inittab' comment the line which begins with 'ca::ctrlaltdel:'  as shown below : [root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/inittab # Trap…

    badblocks is the command or utility in linux like operating system which can scan or test our hard disk and external drive for bad sectors. Bad sectors or bad blocks is the space of the disk which can't be used due to the permanent damage or OS is unable to access it.  Badblocks  command will detect all bad blocks(bad sectors)  on our hard disk and save them in a text file so that we can use it with e2fsck to configure  Operating System(OS) to not store our data on these damaged sectors.

  • XDebug your IDE

    With most languages, when you develop you get the (wonderfully helpful) option of setting breakpoints, stepping through your code, adding watches and inspecting the overall state at any specific point in time. PHP differs in that, being a scripted language hosted in another process (eg Apache) it normally doesn't offer that. Here's how to enable your IDE to do get all the nifty features. For starters, in case I wasn't clear before - you really need an IDE for PHP for the following; and once you start delving into more complex code you really cannot work without one. I'm currently using…
  • Managing Windows server DNS records from Linux commandline

    I've been in the process of automating the creation of Apache VirtualHosts from the command line for some time now. What always annoyed me, was that after the vHost was generated, I had to manually add the DNS entry on our Windows server. Well…. No more! After some talking with our IT guys, they told me of the (windows) command line tool for managing DNS entries ( dnscmd ), which lead me on a search for an equivalent Linux tool. I was happy enough to dig up the nsupdate tool, and after even more digging up, to find how to properly use it. The thing that amazed me the most was that it was…
  • CentOS 7, Active Directory and Samba

    After playing around with CentOS 7, I was amazed at how simple things that are traditionally annoying as heck are - if you get the config right, of course. One of these is getting a Linux share viewable on Windows clients, with Active Directory authentication and authorization, which I'm going to describe in this post. I'm not going to assume anything other than a vanilla installation of CentOS 7 - so we'll be joining the domain first. If you Google around, you'll find tons of articles, with tons of configuration to do... thankfully that's all in the past now. What you'll need to follow this…

    CentOS 7 is out, and it brings some much needed features for web developers! For starters, MySQL is replaced by MariaDB (much better performance for InnoDB, and a better client), and PHP is 5.4 out of the box. In addition, multitudes of tweaks have been made to the system, making it more responsive. The following is a guide (with screenshots) for installing a basic LAMP stack with the new OS, on an empty machine (in this case, a virtual machine), using the NetInstall image (Minimal is not yet available, but being worked on). Getting the image First off, grab a copy of the image either via…
  • Why is my system CPU so high?

    nand
    6 Mar 2014 | 3:02 pm
    Had some performance issues with a client, recently. The server is an absolute beast, and should be able to easily handle the single website hosted on it. Alas, pages took forever to load (D7). A simple top showed that load was at about 60, and CPU utilization was at 10% for user and ... 95% for system. Wait what? There are two things that are odd here. The first is, that even though the normal culprit for high system CPU usage ( the I/O ) was low ( checked using iostat ), most of the CPU went into kernel tasks. I used strace to look into a process and find out what the reason for that delay…
