Comcast Begins Native IPv6 Deployment To End Users

The One KEA Let me know when they support Linux (326 comments)

It looks like the initial deployments will only support recent Windows and recent OS X releases. Let me know when they take the blinders off their tech support people so that Linux folks can set their OpenWRT gateways and Linux servers up with IPv6.

Adobe Patches Second Flash Zero-Day In 9 Days

The One KEA And still no new 64-bit releases (178 comments)

I wonder if Adobe has just given up on its pure 64-bit users (on both Windows and Linux) and decided that they can rot. I haven't seen a new Flash Player Square release mentioned anywhere since the last release came out. What on earth is preventing these people from supporting their 64-bit plugin with security updates?

Linus Renames 2.6.40 Kernel To Linux 3.0, Announces Release Candidate

The One KEA Re:When new numbers meant new features (378 comments)

If you read Linus' thoughts on the subject of numbering, he has stated numerous times that the Linux development process has moved so far beyond "new version = new features" that forcing it back into that paradigm for Linux 3.0 is broken. He believes instead that "new version = some time has passed + some new feature may be included". The fact that Linux 3.0 will be finalized and released very close to the 20th anniversary of the first Linux kernel is just a bonus.

GRUB 1.99 Released With Support For ZFS and BtrFS

The One KEA MOD PARENT UP. (175 comments)

That is both a hilarious joke and a very insightful take on the progression of GRUB; from my perspective, GRUB seems to be getting a little complicated for a bootloader. It's starting to make me nostalgic for LILO and Loadlin...

Adobe Rolls Out Privacy Controls In Flash Player 10.3

The One KEA Re:64-bit (63 comments)

Agreed. The continued silence from Adobe regarding native 64-bit-capable Flash players for ANY platform is a major problem on their part that needs to be fixed - I haven't heard a word about new 64-bit releases for Windows or Mac OS X, much less Linux.

AMD Promises Open Source Graphics Drivers

The One KEA I'll believe it when I see it (264 comments)

$SUBJECT. If AMD really means it, it bodes well for the future - I always hoped that their openness with the Linux community over the x86-64 porting effort wasn't a one-off.

The big question though is whether or not they will try for mainline inclusion, or if they will go with an out-of-tree effort.

I need to use this more often.

I guess it's because I really don't feel the desire to blog that often, so I just don't feel like it. Maybe someday this will actually be updated fairly regularly.

But not now.


The One KEA The One KEA writes  |  more than 11 years ago An update every month. Sounds like a schedule :D

It's easy to get flamed on Slashdot. Gives you a thick skin :D


The One KEA The One KEA writes  |  more than 11 years ago Cool, a journal. Although these days something like this would usually be referred to as a blog.

I doubt I'll ever write very much here, but it is here, so I might as well use it.
