^ The airport itself, rail and highway infrastructure, all will be obsolete when it opens (should it ever happen). Maybe we can sell the airport to North Korea, they are already using old Berlin wagons in their underground system anyway.

The project is already a running joke.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

It seems to be all the fault of Rainer Schwarz. The decision by the authorities not to allow the half-arsed interim plan to go ahead was responsible and decisive i.e. what you expect of Germans.

Greece ran itself irresponsibly and then looked to others to fix the mess when it all went disastrously wrong. The so-called fiasco is a fiasco but the blame is on the shoulders of one man. Germany has not asked other countries to bail it out.

The article strikes me as smug. Are Bloomberg's Jewish owners still bitter about Germany?

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I just installed OpenBsd(first time) in an old computer I picked up. I was browsing through their site, reading mauals etc, and I came across their artwork page. They have theme songs for each release. How cool is that? I'm a fan now  http://www.openbsd.org/lyrics.html  cool

http://www.openbsd.org/songs/song54.ogg (this one is my favourite big_smile)

^ I love OpenBSD smile

I've just re-installed it to my external HDD & I'm going to do it "properly" this time and try to use the base software as much as possible.

Their commitment to code-correctness and quality control for the base packages is most laudable.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

My interest in OpenBSD went after I learned that if you need to update packages between releases you have to patch them yourself. That's beyond my abilities at the moment.

Have you tried version 5.7 yet?

It supports my Haswell-based laptop.

^ No. How's 3D acceleration and vaapi video decoding, plus OpenGL/mesa performance? Without my HD4400's full potential the desktop is useless. How's power saving (pstate support, TLP equivalent)? And what about EFI/GPT support? Sorry for the questions, but google results on this topic contradict each other quite often.

And here's this day's breakfast reading: On Hurd, Linux and the (mis)adventures of cross-compiling a GNU Hurd toolchain, best technical piece I have read so far this month.

No UEFI support but I'm working on that one (FreeBSD does support EFI so it should at least be possible).

Hardware acceleration is fully supported on my HD4600 (version 2.21 of the Intel driver so it's not quite as good as Arch).

Haswell pstate is supported AFAIK.

You could always tweak the kernel if I'm wrong about this.

EDIT: The changes made by TLP could be made manually -- see sysctl(8)

There's something totally awesome ctypes for bash. Call any function from  a shared library directly from Bash. I'm totally going to use that in scripts. Finally, I can produce segfaults in Bash smile

By the way, here's an AUR package wink

I'd consider following the opt-outs if you potentially will have a windows 10 computer in your network.

Yeah, from what I have read so far Windows 10 is not suitable for use on a personal computer anymore; with all the spying bullshit it does (some of it impossible to opt-out from) it's been degraded to a terminal into the Microsoft cloud.

Professionally working for a client on a confidential basis has to contractually forbid the use of Windows 10 in the future wink

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Oh wait ... here's a para that rings a bunch of bells:

While you’re at it, consider keeping Google off your Wi-Fi network as well. It’s unclear whether the Wi-Fi Sense opt-out kludge will also let users opt-out of having their wireless network name indexed by Google, which requires the inclusion of the phrase “_nomap” in the Wi-Fi network name. The Register seems to think Windows 10 upgraders can avoid each by including both “_nomap” and “_optout” in the Wi-Fi network name, but this article at How-To Geek says users will need to choose the lesser of two evils.

I think I'd rather be a bird these days ... ummmm tagless!   roll
