Identi.ca Updates for 2010-04-09

  • @jwildeboer I’d bet most fs projects don’t want to become monetizable, actually, but wouldn’t mind if they did. #
  • Can anyone !fedora confirm that the proper way to use kvm here is qemu-kvm? If so, I get instant reboot after a few seconds on my amd turion #
  • !fedora Instant *host*domain* reboot…. #
  • @gbraad also when starting with virt-manager, I decided to try out the command precisely because I was trying to find out what happened. #
  • @matthewbooth !libvirt (as presented) is a pile of shit. I identified qemu-kvm as the command used but both produce instant reboot !fedora #
  • @matthewbooth UI-wise it’s a pile of shit, it may be good under the hood, but it exposes very little or is heavily under-documented. #
  • @gbraad I have no solution so far, and I haven’t found anyone with a similar issue. #
  • qemu-kvm -m 512MB -hda file.img -cdrom /dev/sr0 -boot d == instant reboot on *host*domain* in this AMD Turion X2 !fedora 12 domain #
  • @JMF1957: sim, e natural que gostem do modelo de negocio do iPay, encaixa-lhes como uma luva. Mas nao serve para os prosumidores 😉 #
  • @floschie: there is no defense but apologism towards #swpat extortionism, which is a great part of #IBM’s income. #
  • O discurso da deputada brasileira Cidinha Campos aplica-se, sem qualquer sombra de duvida, ao ressentimento mudo que sente o povo portugues. #
  • Eu ja so lhes chamo pombos … #
  • @floschie: why are you defending the enforcement of #swpat by known #swpat extortioner called #IBM ? Focus on the REAL issue please :[ #
  • Yes, Mueller is crying us a river but defending #IBM on THIS issue is defending #swpat. I don’t even care about the other company. #
  • @floschie: you focus on the unimportant. #MSFT is just as bad as #IBM as far as #swpat are involved. read the known Forbes article of 2002. #
  • ♺ @floschie: Good stuff, thx. Agree with you on that “patent madness” ♺ @codepope: You may want to read my take at http://bit.ly/bQOtuO #ibm #
  • Reviewing the 21st week ultrasound taking today, with some 3D segments. Cool *boy* comin’ right up! 🙂 #
  • s/taking/taken/ #
  • If U believe “in dubio pro reo” then U should be aware that in the case of patents, U go to court to prove your innocence in infringement #
  • ♺ @jwildeboer: So which rating agency is NOT US based? Anyone else sees a pattern? Dollar is losing, US rating corps shoot on euro? #

  • @pedromelo: \o/ fixe, isso e q e preciso 🙂 #
  • ♺ @pedromelo: Best-practices are good; breast-practices are better #
  • @jmcesteves:@wikileaks matters but their current "extortion" of funds is making them loose value. Almost sorry for having donated. #

  • @floschie OTOH you’re looking awfully apologetic towards an aggressive company brandishing their “mines” in the face of competitors. #swpat #
  • Even if they’re not exactly repeating «Patently Absurd» http://tr.im/URxO the implicit threat is quite clear. Of course IBM now backs off… #

  • @support @heryshoe looks #spammy! #
  • #swpat Is IBM deciding to show how useless are patent promises by suing? http://tr.im/UFHG Is this true? #
  • @glynmoody they’re proving just how valuable are all those useless patent promises #swpat 🙂 #
  • .oO( not at all valuable ) #
  • Eagerly expecting the new OTRS::ITSM (supposed to land by the end of March) with Change Management Process and PINK Verify certification. #
  • @igama estás a estudar ITIL Foundation V3? #
  • @support @willexceltesol is definitely #spammy (and with a quite evident bug in their software). #
  • Excelente 🙂 ♺ @GabrielfSilva: A couve de Bruxelas: http://bit.ly/aitzyz #
  • @jwildeboer I half-agree, IBM is merely not attacking free software in general more than they usually do. #
  • @jwildeboer What they do is prove how worthless patent promises are (even without being bought by another company). #
  • @jwildeboer so if you build a commercial free software you’re provoking the established commercial patent promisers? #
  • @jwildeboer hardware is software (except in materials) and, each time more rearely, sometimes unchangeable. #
  • @jwildeboer with the current minefield, what you’re saying is that there can’t be no commercial free software, and that’s just natural. #
  • @jwildeboer oh, I haven’t been surprised about this eventuality ever since I read those promises. #
  • @jwildeboer and, BTW, Red Hat’s promise is not much better, sadly. #
  • @jwildeboer Red Hat may know that the instant they break it they loose a lot of goodwill and valuable human resources, but it may not matter #
  • But what if they’re bought by someone who doesn’t care? #
  • @jwildeboer You’re screwed if you have a patent infringement case either willfully or not. This *must* be criticised. #
  • @pedromelo confiar nos certificados dos browsers é que é um risco, isto é 🙂 #
  • #WTF uma televisão exigir o formato Betacam Digital para enviar um vídeo para produção, e com montes de considerandos arcaicos *sigh* #
  • ♺ @mind_booster: Liked "Amazon Kindle #DRM Strikes Again: You Don’t Really Own Your eBooks | Techdirt" http://ff.im/iCFnK #
  • ♺ @slashdot: Groklaw Will Be Archived At Library of Congress http://bit.ly/cWHln6 #
  • #Supernatural’s last season and on the brink of the end. Why do they still waste time with filler episodes? Shitty end coming right for us! #

  • @bugabundo gude moaning #
  • Alguém sabe como funciona a publicade institucional na RTP? Estou a ter alguma dificuldade em obter informação… #
  • @lopo obrigado, mas eu queria algo para ler e estudar as opções, não uma voz do outro lado que pode estar certa ou errada 🙂 #
  • @lopo mas será grande o suficiente para isto? http://tr.im/UA2x #
  • ♺ @jwildeboer: the iPay is already hacked, if you believe this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgHNayVtHkQ #
  • @support @simplehitz looks #spammy #
  • @charlesschulz:I loved it, and it’s only possible to make new stories thanks to the story’s copyright status 🙂 #
  • interesting, #elementary bubbles work well with statusnet but NOT with twitter… wonder what’s the difference? #

OMNewRotate 0.5.7 is out!

After about 11 months since the previous release, I’ve just released omnewrotate 0.5.7 (after short lived 0.5.5 and 0.5.6 as I found out a dangling patch in SHR-Unstable’s recipe and did a mistake on the 0.5.6 release) which integrates Tim Abell’s init script change and the aforementioned patch.

As I’m running SHR-Unstable, your mileage may vary but it’s likely it will work 🙂

As usual, the download links are at the project’s Google Code site for omnewrotate (see the featured downloads section):

Enjoy!

  • @freemor: thanks to a friend with a multimeter and a generic charger I found out it was the power cord instead. my !olpc is working 🙂 #
  • @forteller I hope it’s not half as memory hungry as in current releases, or it’ll be the death of it in mobile usage #
  • ♺ @glynmoody: MS Fails the Standards Test http://bit.ly/9oZlV5 coming from someone who played a big part in ISO process, this is big #ooxml #
