When I read that Adobe was going to withdraw it’s stand alone flash player support for Gnu/Linux, felt a little bit strange, though it was with the exception of chrome/chromium browser.

As per a blog entry by Adobe: “Adobe has been working closely with Google to develop a single modern API for hosting plugins within the browser (one which could replace the current Netscape plugin API being used by the Flash Player). The PPAPI, code-named “Pepper” aims to provide a layer between the plugin and browser that abstracts away differences between browser and operating system implementations”. So from it is pretty clear that how Google is going to market their Chrome browser for Gnu/Linux, if you are using a Gnu/Linux distribution and you want to see Flash content, it looks like you’re left with just one choice, and that’s to embrace Google Chrome. Yet there left something for…

GNU Image Manipulation Program, otherwise known as GIMP, is a free, powerful open source photo editing program for Mac, Windows, and Linux that is considered an excellent alternative to expensive image editing programs like Adobe Photoshop. GIMP can perform basic image editing tasks such as resizing, editing, cropping photos, and format conversion. It has a number of built-in advanced features like layering, masking, and the ability to create animated images and desktop icon in addition to countless user submitted plugins that help to ensure an ongoing feature-rich experience.

“Numerous digital photo imperfections can be easily compensated for using GIMP. Fix perspective distortion caused by lens tilt simply choosing the corrective mode in the transform tools,” note developers. “Eliminate lens’ barrel distortion and vignetting with a powerful filter but a simple interface.”

Channel mixer, barrel distortion, perspective transform and colorize are but a few of the many ways GIMP allows you to enhance your images and affords you the…

Where to start

As I spend more time engrossing into the world of DevOps there’s been a number of occasions where something has not felt right with the relationship between operations and development. Within the team at work we will be hiring developers to work on the integration back with the development team, improving the build process, re-factoring the code to make it quicker to code / build / deploy All of which is good stuff.

However we fore mostly run a service, that is the main reason for the existence of the group. Without the correct support framework we will not be offering a service but instead offering a really fancy technology exercise so we can say we do X or Y or Z and I worry that is the route we are destined for.

Can Developers do Sysadmin tasks?

Of course they can, why couldn’t they, in the…

Fifty Plants that Changed the Course of History

by Bill Laws

Before opening this book I started thinking about which plants might be covered…

The potato?       Bamboo?     The cocoa plant?

Once you start pondering the subject it’s amazing how many plants you can come up with that have had a significant impact on the way we eat, how we live, and how our world in general looks today.

Did you know the mulberry tree had an impact on trade relations between China and the western world?

How about the tobacco plant…? Or white willow?

Some of the plants mentioned in Fifty Plants that Changed the Course of History may not have played such a big role as, say, the rubber tree. Or poppies for opium. Nonetheless, the writer’s choice does seem logical. He includes a variety of historical and botanical information, so I intended to read it from…
