David Carver401Alright, thought I'd share my "Everyday" circle.  This contains people that use G+ frequently.  It is has a wide variety of topics, and content.  It is a grab bag full of posts and people I find interesting.  Some post pretty frequently, others post less often.Topics cover tech, video games, food and drink, beer, adult material, and much more.  Many people here have graduated from my "Following" circle to my "Everyday" circle, which is my top circle.  If you are here.  Congrats.  You only have down wards to go. :)2012-11-19 21:46:36157404CC G+
Yvan Da Silva4,840Hi everyone,As many of you already know, I have a nice circle called "ReadThis", the name says it all. From time to time I go check what that circle is doing because I know they do great posts, have absolutely brilliant minds and have caught my attention at a moment or another.You don't have to do anything special to get in, this circle is in constant movement. People get in, some people get out etc. Depending on their posts, comments and activity. If you are new to Google+ then this is definitively a circle you might consider. You do not have to add them all, you can actually select which people you want to follow!

When you do this the first time, it looks like a simple oversight - left-overs from some debugging perhaps. But when you "fix" it by hiding it, it's very clearly deliberate.

Netgear, Cisco, quick question please? What exactly does it take to actually care about your customers instead of actively trying to screw them?

We're apparently the only people around who have random videos of our kids doing various things shot with random phones or cameras that don't always get the rotation right. 

Because I just went through several different video players until I found one that allowed me to rotate the video to be right side up.

smplayer for the win.

But that's after trying too many alternatives.

Even VLC, that does pretty much anything and has an overly fancy video geometry thing that allows you to rotate the video by an arbitrary amount gets it completely wrong. Not only does it make it unnecessarily hard to actually do a simple 90° rotation (because obviously you want an analog input thing that makes it possible to rotate by something like 82°, but no obvious way to just fix a vertical video?), but then it keeps the end result within the original aspect ratio box soth... more »

Q: How can you tell when a kernel maintainer is European?

A: He describes some of the changes as written by "Alexandre Belloni, Jean-Jacques Hiblot and other French people".

.. because clearly it's too hard to keep track of all those French people that presumable nobody cares about anyway.

There is a real downside to working with a walking desk that the industry hasn't fully acknowledged. 

When you aren't sitting down, the cat cannot jump up onto your lap and lie there enjoying her human heat-source.  So instead, said cat will jump up on the desk and try to annoy you into picking her up by covering the monitor or batting at the cursor on the screen.

This makes the merge window "interesting". At least I haven't bought into the touch-screen crazy - another "improvment" to technology that people clearly didn't think all the way through wrt cat ownership.

One of my pet peeves (and yes, I've got a lot of them) is how my grocery store that carries high-quality groceries also is all crazy about homeopathy. Apparently there s a sad overlap between "I like my foods not overly processed" and "I am a big moron when it comes to medicine".

Guys, Homeopathy is a scam. And when even the manufacturers know that and try to make their products actually do something by adding real medicine into it, you have to ask yourself just how stupid you have to be to believe these jokers/scammers.

And brought it into the house.


And promptly let it go.

Of course.

Now the shrew sits behind our washing machine.

Now I need to place an order from http://www.swedishfoodshop.com/. Unfortunately they only have Röda Ulven, which is a pretty mediocre brand. But they have tunnbröd so it can be consumed like it was meant to.

As almost all reviewers of surströmming, this author seems to make the mistake of thinking that you just cut a piece of fish off and eat it. It's not how it's done, and yes that would be quite stomach-turning.

I'm combining elements from two very different projects I started..

In +Subsurface, I originally used XML as the save file format, because while it is probably the worst format ever designed, it's what other projects used, and subsurface wasn't originally really capable enough to stand on its own.

Now, I did the best that I could with XML, and I suspect the subsurface XML is about as pretty and human-readable as you can make that crap, but it really doesn't scale as a file format, and it's generally a complete disaster. 

So me and +Dirk Hohndel (who maintains subsurface, I long since gave up that role) have been idly talking about better save formats for months now. But binary formats are evil and generally not extensible, and besides, you want replication and network transparency, plus the ability to combine dives from many different sources. Binaryb... more »

Whee, Netgear, you kind of suck.

So I have had a Netgear N600 (WNDR3700v2) for a while, and yesterday I made the mistake of upgrading its firmware. With all the router stuff in the news, I thought I should do it. Because newer is better, right?

The "upgrade" brought back the bad old days in the configuration setup interface, but hey, I remember those days, so I didn't mind too much.  It was prettier for a while, but I can take ugly when I look at that interface maybe once a year.

But then, several hours later, I start getting emails about my WiFi thermostats no longer phoning home. Unrelated? I don't think so (but see edit). 

And sadly, Netgear has removed the old firmware version that had the prettier configuration interface, and that used to actually work. Oops.

Are there any good routers that just work? And no, I'm noti... more »

Why, AT&T, why?

So Daniela broke her phone yesterday (it's a Nexus 4 we got her last year, there's something wrong with the screen, we'll see if we can RMA it back to Google).

No biggy, in the meantime she can just use another phone - for some unfathomable reason it turns out that we have a couple of extra Android phones just lying about. So let's give her the S4 that nobody is using. Right?

So we switch the SIM-card, and everything is fine. We've done this before. Sometimes you have to call AT&T and give the new IMEI, because AT&T tracks whether you can do LTE and whatever. Annoying, and I don't see why AT&T should care what equipment you have, but there you have it.. An annoying cellphone carrier? Who knew?

So this time, we do it because the whole AT&T visual voicemail thing (do we want it? I don't think so, but... more »

I have a zombie shuffling desk!

So normal people call it a "walking desk", but quite frankly, I have a hard time typing (or particularly using the mouse with any precision) at any speed setting over one mile per hour, so it really is more of a zombie shuffling thing than actually walking.

But even that should be better than sitting all day long, right?

Wish me luck. Or at least persistence.

The guitar strumming is either kitschy or just annoying, and the choice of pictures is very random and a bit creepy.

So I really should not find it kind of endearing how google tries to do these things. But dammit, it's kind of cute. Toilet paper kitten and all.

Snapsvisor med engelsk fonetik?

Jag vet att det finns häften med snapsvisor med engelsk fonetik, för jag hittade ett för ett par år sedan ("Hell and gore" för Helan Går). Kan någon hitta en kopia på webben? Jag har glömt var jag hittade dem..

Vi har finsk jul med grannarna, med de har lite svårt med sångerna..

Subsurface 4.0 has been released, our first version based on #Qt.
We're very happy with the improved UI and especially with the amazing help that we have gotten from the Qt developer community in migrating to Qt.
Lots of changes, many cool new features. Please take a look at the announcement below for details.

This is sad.

With all the posturing Google has done over the NSA stuff, and having encouraged people to sign the petition to require a warrant for email snooping (which I heartily agree with), this just makes Google look hypocritical.

I'm doing penance for my evil google maps ways..

I wanted to fix the location for the dive shop we used in Palau, because Tova and Navot were very good at getting us diving, And that was despite the typhoon that decided to visit the same week (you may have heard of typhoon Haiyan - yes, the very one that hit the Philippines a few days later).

But either MapMaker has changed (I know I have moved markers in the past), or it depends on details of the locale: I couldn't just move the marker. So I ended up having to delete the old incorrectly placed entry entirely, and creating a new one.

So now I'm doing penance for deleting their entry, and trying to publicize the new one.

I just went through my photos from the last dive trip.

Let's just say I have hit a new low. The only thing uglier I have ever seen is the occasional Movember mug-shot here on G+. 

I think I'll leave the photography to the professionals, and just sticking to what I do best underwater: float around upside down.

+Fedora Project: is there some basic reason why you never regenerate the install images?

Right now the F19 install images use some ancient 3.9-based kernel. Which means that they may boot on most machines, but it's missing wireless ID's for new laptops etc, so making it useful is unnecessarily painful.

Philips: your LED lights suck.

I've replaced most of the lights in our house with LED's, because I detest those nasty CFL's. 

And in general, things are working out pretty well. I'm particularly pleased with the 6" EcoSmart recessed lights you can get at Home Depot (not a bulb replacement - it replaces the whole trim kit).

But today I've been walking around changing out the Philips bulbs that are just a couple of years old. "40,000 hours" my ass. Sure, they still "work" - but actual light output is maybe a quarter of what it was when new.

I'm hoping the new Cree bulbs are better. Cree is the manufacturer for the LED module for the EcoSmart recessed lights, so I have some reason to be hopeful that a couple of years down the line I won't curse at them.

You'll see much better photos if you go to +Dirk Hohndel's set of pictures, but I thought I'd post these just to show the scale of things.

There really isn't any perspective trickery. And this wasn't a particularly big specimen.

I'm preparing the end of the merge window (done the pulls, done the tag, doing allmodconfig etc sanity testing), but while waiting for the compiles to finish, here's a shout-out to the scuba shop that got us wet over the weekend and this morning..

In particular, we had two boats where me and +Dirk Hohndel were the only two paying customers, and a lot of dive shops tend to cancel the whole thing when they don't make their minimum requirements. Which kind of sucks if you do this kind of "let's dive for an extended weekend before a conference" kind of thing.

But not Jim&crew. We got the full ten dives in. We missed one yesterday due to a broken compressor on the boat, but they made up for it this morning by missing the reef and giving us an extra five-minute quickie dive over sand ;)

I'm sure Dirk will have pictures. Me, I'll have the... more »

Damn. I already named 3.12 after the less-than-gifted squirrel that didn't seem to understand that he should run away from the car.

But if I had seen this hard-hitting news-report earlier, we'd have had a different kernel name.

Update: as most of you noticed, the death of my SSD didn't much slow me down. But for those of you worried, I got my SSD back online with a secure erase cycle (so no data, but at least I have a working fast disk again).

So I'm back to merging using my desktop. The main difference being that now I can do full allmodconfig builds again to verify what I pull from you guys. I did that on the laptop too. Once. The difference between 19 minutes and a bit over an hour is quite noticeable.

2013-09-11 02:41:45 (136 comments, 47 reshares, 400 +1s)

Hey, peeps.

My main desktop SSD just gave up the ghost. This is not a huge disaster, in that git is distributed and even if I can't make it come back, I lost perhaps three pull requests that I hadn't pushed out yet because I batch those things up and do things like full module builds etc.

But timing-wise it's inconvenient because we're still in the merge window, and I pretty much had all my pending pulls done. So if you're one of those three or four people who had sent me a pull request in the last day or two, and you don't see it on git.kernel.org, it's probably on my dead harddisk.

I'll re-do the ones I find in my mailbox archives (I'm using my laptop as my desktop replacement now) and push those out. But I get too much email, and since I already archived the pull requests I did, maybe I can't find them in the mess that is my email... more »

Hello everybody out there using Linux -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, even if it's big and professional) for 486+ AT clones and just about anything else out there under the sun. This has been brewing since april 1991, and is still not ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in Linux 3.11-rc7.

I originally ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), but others have taken over user space and things still seem to work. This implies that I'll get the final 3.11 release within a week, and I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)

I have a "Finland" section in google news, so I know all about the bear cub that danced Gangnam Style in Finland. Thank you Google for the hard-hitting journalism.

However, I find myself really wishing for an anti-filter. So +Google, can you please add a setting to filter out any news story that has the words "Princess Diana" in it?

You know what? I don't think you need to even expose this as a personalized setting. Be radical, and just decide unilaterally to improve the quality of news, ok?

Headache: looking at intel CPU numbers.

Christ. How can a company with so many good engineers have so many crazy marketing people? Their parties must be lots of fun, but you guys need to sober up before you start coming up with CPU numbering schemes. 

I thought Intel had mandatory drug testing? Or is that just for the engineers?

It's almost exactly one year since I got my Nexus 7, and talked here on G+ about how much I like it as a form factor. 

And it turns out that of the various tech toys I have, the Nexus 7 held up well too - a year later, it's still my favorite form-factor for tablets. Because despite the absolutely gorgeous screen on the Nexus 10, I find myself using the smaller tablet simply because the ten inch form factor is too large to carry around or hold in one hand for any extensive time.

So hey, I have the new higher-resolution Nexus 7 on order, and am repeating the "refresh the UPS tracker" from one year ago.  I will never learn.

Our cat remains deficient.

We're taking care of a neighbors kitten while they are gone for a few days, so I naturally decide to see how Minky (our cat) would react to it. 

I hold the kitten in my hands while I sit down on the floor, and Minky, loving cat that she is, comes to sit in my lap. All the while not noticing this squirming kitten at all. WTF Minky?

In the meantime, the kitten is getting "excited", and wriggling more. Claws out, paws flailing. Minky, meanwhile, is totally oblivious, and just tries to get a comfortable spot in my lap.

Finally the kitten hisses and bats at Minky, and that's the point when our deficient cat notices that there's something going on, jumps out of my lap and pees herself in fright.

I don't think I'll try to introduce the two any more. It's just a few days.

How do you know you're a douchenozzle?

If your news network reports that the Finnish social security provider sent the British royalty the standard maternity box (with various useful things in it for new parents), you'd be reporting on some government people being cute.

And if your news network makes the headline all about the condoms that maternity package happens to contain (among all the baby clothes, bedding, etc), you're a douchenozzle.
