What Linux OS should I get?

Reddit - Fri, 2016-09-23 23:09


I have a task to do on the Linux terminal for university, but Linux isn't my base-OS, and I thought I could just build it on a VM (instead of going to the labs there).

As I will only use it for the terminal and other "small" tasks, I was wondering what would the best Linux OS to get? I'm thinking about something that's really basic and isn't ressource hungry, no need for all the programs a "mother" OS would need (Ubuntu for example). (Like Raspberry Pi's Linux OS is very basic).

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Mobile download storrage for hotspots

Reddit - Fri, 2016-09-23 23:08

The following storry happend to me today: I'm on vacations right now, and my Hotel does not have wifi. So I have to relay on the mobile network, but my data volume is rather small. I wanted to watch some TV shows, and therefore download them. I wanted to do that using wifi, because otherwise it wouldn't drain my data volume. I went to look for some hotspot nearby. I found one, and it worked, but it was slow as hell, and so I only had time to download two shows. This is when I had this Idea: Couldn't we just take a raspberry (3) put a battry on it, and place it near such a hotspot, and then let it download what ever we want? So I could put the device there in the morning, and pick it up in the evening, and then I would have all the files I needed.

What's consuming my bandwidth?

Reddit - Fri, 2016-09-23 21:15

Does anyone know a console program that could tell me what service/process is consuming my bandwidth over a certain period, for example, a day? All the monitoring/statistical programs I've come across can do real-time monitoring of your bandwidth (i.e. speed in/out at the moment) but they can't tell me that nginx has used x GB in the last 24 hours.

NVIDIA's Proposal For A New API Better Than GBM Has Already Made Some Progress

Phoronix - Fri, 2016-09-23 20:26
On the first day of the XDC2016 conference this week in Finland NVIDIA presented over their GBM vs. EGLStreams debate that's been ongoing for months with NVIDIA's lack of GBM API support by their driver being what's preventing the binary blob from working with current-generation Wayland compositors. In that session they called for a new community-driven API to suit the needs of device memory / surface allocation and could succeed the Generic Buffer Manager. By the end of XDC2016, some progress has already been made...

Forum software for small group?

Reddit - Fri, 2016-09-23 18:46

I play in a band of four, and we write our own songs collaboratively. We all have different schedules, so keeping in collaboration throughout the week, or even scheduling times to get together, can be tough. We have been doing this via texting, but it is a mess. I think that having a centralized point for online discussion and collaboration throughout the week would be helpful in making our playing time in person more productive, as well as making scheduling playing times easier on everyone.

A typical week might go like this (using pseudonyms here). Jane has a verse for song but is having trouble coming up with a chorus. She sends out a text with an mp3 attached to see if someone else might have a good idea where to go with it. John has an idea for a chorus, and he sends it back to Jane. Jane likes the idea, but makes some small changes, sending it back to John. Paul, being on a different schedule, checks his messages and also has an idea for the chorus, sending it back to Jane. Jane likes it over John's idea, but she has already invested time into John's idea and replied to John about keeping it. Ringo gets a message of one of the song versions and writes some drum parts for it. Ringo messages Paul saying that he has a work function to attend and needs to reschedule playing time. Paul thinks that Ringo must have messaged the others about rescheduling, so he doesn't inform the other two members. Jane's phone is momentarily dead, so when she finds out about the reschedule, it is too late. When the group finally gets together, Jane has reworked the song the night before with a completely different chorus, and the band spends time forgetting whatever version each member might have already invested time into, learning the new version.

So I'm considering setting up an old pc for centralized discussion and collaboration for the band. Using a forum immediately came to mind, but maybe there is something better suited for a small group. The requirements would be, good formatting for mobile access, ease of use for the other members, file attachments, and sms notification of new posts. Ideally, sms notifications of new posts would only be sent out to a member when that member is not logged in and active, but this is pretty minor.
