Theresistornetwork: The Resistor Network: A Testament to X11 Backwards Compatibility (Andrew Rossignol)

I recently scored a Hewlett Packard 1670A Deep Memory Logic Analyzer and I finally had a chance to fire it up. This unit dates back to 1992 and is packed with all sorts of interesting options for connecting peripherals to it. One particular feature that caught my eye was the option to connect to an X Server.HP 1670A Logic Analyzer Here is the inter...

Friendica as OpenID server

First version, almost functional, of "openidserver" Friendica plugin:
use your profile url as openid! :-)

It use JanRain PHP openid libs, it's an adaption of example server.
It seems to work as basic openid server.

What don't works (yet):
- Login. You have to be already logged in Friendica when you try to login into some service with friendica profile url
- Extra data. The server will not send extra data (email, url,..) to clients. Needs an UI to select if send them or not (and which)..
- List of associates sites (and UI to delete association)

Boingboing: Renault ships a brickable car with battery DRM that you're not allowed to own (Cory Doctorow)

You can't buy a battery for the new Renault Zoe. Instead, you have to rent it. And if you stop making payments, the battery's #DRM will prevent you from recharging it.

well the thing "if you stop paying then the battery won't charge" it's not geeky stuff. I think people understand it better than philosophy things like "own your data" & co

Last breaking news!

Domain come back from the death.
Don't ask me how, black magic things, I don't ask anything.

I had already registered "", I'll keep it for something else (maybe a Red server? mmh..)

The good news is I don't have to change anything to my server, I don't have to "relocate" my friendica profile, I can keep my not-so-used email :-)

So, I'm back, I'm fine.

The bad news is nobody won the "domain name competition",
but if you'd like to have an account on, send me a private message: you could find me in a good mood :-)

I have to register a new domain name for this server, as is expired and gone.
I don't have any ideas ATM. I don't want to register "kirgroup" again, under another TLD.
Write some ideas in comments! To the chosen an account under new domain name on friendica, owncloud and email! :-)

Devo registrare un nuovo nome di dominio da usare con questo server, visto che è andato.
Al momento non ho idee. Non voglio registrare di nuovo "kirgroup" ma sotto un diverso TLD (.net o qualcosa del genere).
Lasciate le vostre idee nei commenti! All'autore dell'idea scelta (o dell'idea che ispirerà la scelta) un account friendica/owncloud/email col suo nome sotto il nuovo dominio! :-)

I've registered .. when ready, I'll update my server. Hopefully, friendica will keep to work: I've wrote a patch to "migrate" a server between domain names .
Hope it will work :-)

I don't know if this message will be delivered.

My domain ( is expired and my register don't replies to my emails (from a while now, my first attempt to update my domain was a month ago..)

I'll try to recover from this, but I'm afraid I'll have to change my domain name...

@Arto my domain is already expired (I think you can write me mainly because of dns caching on your server, and also thanks to contact polling on friendica). The real question is "why they didn't renew my domain?", but now the question is "what i'll do? a new domain? or f**k off everything, I'll let expire also this vm and goodbye?". By now I'm going to sleep.

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters

Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!

Certo linux usa opengl ma se guardi la tua immagine dice"directx-9 blablabla compatibile" ed i giochi disponibili per linux sono con opengl. Chiaro che se devi comperare una scheda grafica sulla confezione viene riportata directx9 o 10 o quello che è, mica ci scrivono linux compatibile, ehhh noi siamo dei barboni :-D
Anche i 5 gb sono pochini, sicuramente steam ti avvertirà che considera poco lo spazio disponibile, meglio prevede dai 100 gb in sù (non perchè steam occupi molto spazio, ma i giochi sì)

Docebo, ovvero "open source all'italiana"

Docebo era una piattaforma di e-Learning (LMS, Learning Management System) scritta in PHP e pubblicizzata come "La piattaforma di e-learning italiana open source".

Per vari motivi, mi sono trovato a lavorare con la versione 3.qualcosa del suddetto software. Per gli stessi vari motivi, mi sono trovato a dover modificare il codice per aggiungere funzionalità o sistemare quello che non funzionava a dovere.

Ora, come in ogni buon progetto open ci si aspetta di trovare un bel repository del codice, un bug tracking di qualche tipo e la possibilità di inviare patch. Tutto questo era completamente impossibile con Docebo. Il codice era disponibile solo sottoforma di zippone. Devi aggiornare e vuoi sapere cos'è cambiato? Cavoli tuoi.
Il bug tracking era gestito tramite forum, dove l'utente più attivo a rispondere e risolvere era esterno al team di sviluppo, del quale solo l'ideatore rispondeva, ma di solito col tono "l'ho fatto io, ho ragione io, tu che vuoi?".
Di patch nemmeno a parlarne.

Purtroppo per me, a un certo punto l'investimento... show more

Cmq il nuovo progetto open, mio malgrado, usa sempre il forum per gestire bug e patch.. e svn per il codice...
