This is a recording of the presentation I gave to the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group (OCLUG) on September 2 about their Django-based web site. I covered the server and virtualhost configuration for OCLUG, and two new features recently added to the site. I also presented some general information about how Django handles requests and discussed some of the code for the new features.
This is a recording of the second Kernel Walkthrough given by Bart Trojanowski for the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group. This time Bart covers the x86 boot process in Linux. He gives a presentation with Q+A in the first hour. In the second hour he walks thorough the Linux C and assembly code itself.
We were generously hosted again by TheCodeFactory, a local hotbed of high-tech startup companies.
Special thanks again to Richard Guy Briggs for help with this recording.
The game and level designers at Nintendo truly brilliant every now and then. When looking for a way to make the New Super Mario Brothers on Nintendo DS more challenging I decided to try playing it with only one of the two primary buttons given to maneuver the little rotund plumber about. I figured that by only jumping and never pressing the dash button that I might be able to beat the game but that most of the secrets would be out of reach.
In fact, all the levels can be completed, 98% of the coins collected and 83% of the secret level exits accessed without ever pressing dash. And the game is much harder (it really was too easy to start with.)
I just came from a presentation purported to be about a stackable filesystem from Samsung called SynergyFS. The talk was more of a hardware sales pitch with no technical details, and technology that "can't be released under the GPL because if we give it to you you can give it to anyone else."
Samsung definitely doesn't get Linux and Open Source and deserves to remain on the "to avoid" list when purchasing new hardware.
