Ask Slashdot: An Open Source PC Music Studio?
Our music studio only records live sound (no MIDI). We use CCRMA on Fedora20. It has a ton of stuff you might find useful. We use it for the RT prempt capabilities so musicians can auto-punch-in/out during recording without have to go back and time-shift tracks later.
Our "sound card" is a pair of Echo Audiofire 12's for the 24 mics around the studio.
Dell Releases Ubuntu-Powered Cloud Servers
Why buy Linux from a traditionally Windows-only integrator with little Linux experience? There's plenty of very skilled Linux hardware integrators out there. I'm a shill for my favorite, Silicon Mechanics.
UK Seeks Stronger Partnership In Space Technology With India
I think you're forgetting the pleasure cyborgs in Blade Runner.
New Video of Apple's Enormous iDataCenter
Some day all the processing power and storage in that place will fit on something you can hold in your hand. Let's hear from the /. futurist nerds why this will/will not be the case.
Wine 1.2 Released
I'm not even going to check the website. Pretty much everything worth running already works, except Quickbooks. That's the game killer for real desktop adoption. I completely understand why it's nearly impossible to make it happen, but It would sure be nice if Quickbooks completely worked.
In the last 24 hours, I've consumed ...
As someone who's constantly training for marathons and triathlons I find that I'm frequently at a calorie deficit. Even if I constantly chug olive oil and almond butter I still need to fill in the gaps with 5 or 6 meals per day plus junk food. You have no idea how hard it is to cram 4k+ calories into every available orifice!
Launching Frequently Key To NASA Success
The first thing that occurs to me is that it probably takes more than a week to gather all the fuel to launch a satellite into orbit, you insensitive clod.
Iran Slows Internet Access Before Student Protests
Clearly if I'm getting a frist psot on /. then they've gotten to us to!
Palm Pre Reviewed
I still haven't heard anything about IMAP/SSL and XMPP/SSL support. How does the calendar sync? Please be iCal or CalDAV. I'm going to wait for an emulator to be released before buying this phone so I can at least verify they have adequate software for email and chat.
Ten Features To Love About Android 1.5
I've been waiting for an android thread! Before I go buy one...
1. Does it have an IMAP client that supports IDLE?
2. Do the IMAP and SMTP protocols support SSL/TLS from personal CAs?
3. Does the email client support identities (like thunderbird)?
4. Can I use my own Openfire XMPP server with my personal CA?
5. Can I use my own iCal/CalDAV server for my calendar? Is there another app besides google's calendar?
Those are my criteria for buying a new phone. Who's got the answers?
Will Wright Leaves EA/Maxis For Stupid Fun Club
Reminds me of Daikatana for some reason. Someone breaking away on their own with an open-ended, ambitious project that may or may not actually produce anything.
Strange Glitches In Games
If you popped the disk out of the drive and walked a little way to make it access the disk to load more terrain it would instead generate miles of random tiles. Some of the tiles were endless stacks of chests. You could open those chests and get tons of gold. Works all the way up through Ultima 4. I never played any after that.
Open Source Shooter Nexuiz 2.5 Released
I get violently motion sick when I play FPS games, but I can't stop playing this one. It's screaming fast and really fun. I think what makes it desirable to play is that it lacks the polish of the commercial titles but plays incredibly fast on my dated hardware. What it really comes down to is well designed maps and textures (for me).
Google Voice Fixes Security Flaw, Almost
What does it take to get into Grand Central? I've been signing up over and over for a year now.
Linux Kernel 2.6.29 Released
The most important feature is the new mascot, Tuz. FTFA:
As everybody knows, only important fixes will be merged into the mainline kernel at this late stage of the development cycle. One of the fixes merged by Linus on March 17 was a high-resolution SVG image of "Tuz," the mascot of the 2009 linux.conf.au conference. Tuz, in his new home at Documentation/logo.svg, serves to remind the world of the difficulties faced by the Tasmanian devil and how the linux.conf.au attendees supported the effort to save this species from extinction.
How Steam Revived a Dead Game
Since I abandoned Windows 2 years ago I haven't really played any games. Does UT3 run on Linux or do I need Cedega?
FOSS Multicast Document Sharing?
Use openfire and a Jabber client like Psi/Gajim/Pidgin.
Use Alfresco for document sharing.
Lenovo Removes Linux Option For Home Buyers
On Dell's website, all the Ubuntu models have a note: Ubuntu 8.04 with DVD Playback. What does that mean? That they installed the unlicensed work-around for you or is there some licensed linux DVD decoder?
