KDE 4.7 RC Is Here: GRUB2 Integration, KWin Mobile

dkd903 Re:GRUB integration? (175 comments)

I didn't read TFS thoroughly enough - KDM (which is the login manager) integrates with grub2. Probably it means that you can do some fancy stuff like tell it to reboot to freebsd, windows or osx (if you have multi boot).

Yes. That is true on a Multi-Boot system :-)

Disqus Commenting System Goes Down; Leaves All Blo

dkd903 dkd903 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

dkd903 writes "This is for the first time we are facing issues with the commenting system as nothing loads in the comments area of the blogs. So, as of now all our blogs are pretty comment-less and so are other blogs around the world. You can check the Twitter search page for users who have started expressing their concerns about the Disqus commenting system going down.

Given the fact that many WordPress self hosted blogs and other portals use Disqus (a third party service) as their primary commenting system, it is really worrying to see if users / site administrators should actually use a third party comment system or use the default commenting systems of the respective CMS."
