The balloon man

Went for dinner at a local market today. It is a very busy market
especially on a Sunday night. While having dinner I watched 5 men
lettings off bunches of balloons in the air.
At first I thought they were some fun loving people who were making
pure merry. Went closer, only to find out that those muscular men
had taken over the balloon man's cycle and were letting off all
the balloons tied to it! I watched the balloon man's plight, he was
a thin man...

quick puzzle !

One of those days (rant)

Posted 10-19-2014 at 09:50 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Ever have one of those days where you want to grab people, shake them within an inch of their lives, and scream in their face "WWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKE UUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPP!!"??

I'm having one of those days. I read a debate earlier where one side was arguing that RMS has saved us from proprietary control and all that jazz.

Really? It's 2014. 2004 wants its punchline back.

I challenge ANY of you to a simple task. I challenge you to fork a GPL project,...

Chrome OS: What could it mean for Linux?

Posted 07-17-2009 at 02:06 PM by pereb

Last week, Google put an end to the ongoing rumors and officially announced Chrome OS. Marketed as a solution for lower-end PCs and netbooks, Chrome OS is touted as running “within a new windowing system”. What’s interesting, though, is that it will run on top of a Linux kernel. Is Google’s Chrome OS project a step towards legitimizing (in the sense of marketing to the mass public) Linux?

When it comes to operating systems, the public perception is quite narrow. There's Windows,...

The Latest Fad: Open Source?

Posted 07-21-2009 at 04:13 PM by pereb

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I’m a huge fan of open source development, as I’m sure most of you on here are. I’ve never really understood the mindset of, “We want you to buy and use our software, and you’re able to look at it far more objectively than we can much of the time, but we absolutely do NOT want you to be able to implement your potentially ground-breaking ideas into our software! And we’ll fix our own bugs, on our own time, thank you very much!”
