Colour key – Venn Jordan Pedro
- A person, one, singular.
- You know AMD split their GPU stack, right? #CDNA.
- Take a look at the Me diagram.
- This will be for compute, not RDNA.
- With a focus on compute the need for a Linux person becomes rather essential.
- I hope the end user (gaming) drivers will see performance improvements but I won’t be holding my breath.
- I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping this could lead to more development on the Direct Rendering Infrastructure, and maybe DRI-4.0, because DRI-3.0 is 6 years old.
- I did not know OnlyOffice existed right up until I read this.
- ONLYOFFICE Editors v.5.5 is now available!
- This great Microsoft Office alternative includes the ability to compare documents, a Scale to Fit option to make your spreadsheet fit a printed page, and an easy to use presentation editor.
- Wonderful, it is nice to have another great office solution, and one that is focused on online collaboration, via their own ONLYOFFICE or ownCloud and Nextcloud.
- It even supports old unsupported Linux distros, Ubuntu 12.04 etc.
- I installed the .deb, but there is an AppImage, Snap, Flatpak and TAR.GZ as well.
- OnlyOffice used to be Teamlab office, and its name was changed in 2014.
- Hard freeze will take place in 2021.
- Full freeze mid 2037.
- That’s interesting!
- Instead of a database it calculates your password based on your username, the website and the master password.
- Nailed it! One of the reasons I haven’t used Keepass or Lastpass in a long time is I never can remember my passwords, and the need to sync devices.
- Having a master password from which other passwords are created via compute instead of generating and storing random passwords like the other options is brilliant.
- You can use the web site, or for greater security, a Firefox or Chrome extensions, an Android app, and my favorite, a command line interface.
- Fresh 2007 firewire interface goodness on Linux.
- AKA my $100 interface wrecks yours, loveningly.
- I’ve set up a review system on the webzone.
- Getting an OS to convey information without words is pretty challenging.
- Also, as someone who has railed non stop on that other podcast we do about how video games are best when they convey narrative with no text on screen, I fully support this initiative!
- Proprietary software, whether it be for the non-verbal or the visually impaired can be hundreds to thousands of dollars, and more open source options are needed in this space.
Slice of Pi
- I want an 8GB version, if it’s under $200.
- Should be able to adapt a mpcie > pcie thing, 3D a case and shove a fw card under it.
- Jackbox Mini.
- Like Venn says, if this hits that sweet spot around $200 it could be an inexpensive desktop replacement, and a great option for a beowulf cluster.
- Fully integrated digital signage solution for not a lot of money, considering the alternatives.
- The Xibo Player Open Source Digital Signage Player is a wonderful software option, but requires more time to get it up and running and setting it up on hardware, so if you don’t have the time buy a Linutop.
- There is a new Raspberry Pi Imager program for imaging your microSD card for the Pi.
- This will definitely make it easier and faster to install a distro, whether it be a Raspbian or Ubuntu image on a RasPi.
- The UI is simple and is a lot like using Etcher.
Ubuntu Image (RTheren)
- Something to use the imager with.
