What are good command line HTTP clients? Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 25 2015 @ 07:24 PM EDT
Contributed by: fk

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts is a very famous quote from Aristotle, a Greek philosopher and scientist. This quote is particularly pertinent to Linux. In my view, one of Linux's biggest strengths is its synergy. The usefulness of Linux doesn't derive only from the huge raft of open source (command line) utilities. Instead, it's the synergy generated by using them together, sometimes in conjunction with larger applications.

First Steps with OpenELEC on the Raspberry Pi 2 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 29 2015 @ 01:13 PM EST
Contributed by: fk

OpenELEC uses very little system resources for processor or memory. There's no need to use any special customization tips to get good performance with the RPi2. There's also no need to overclock the machine, reduce the resolution of videos, or use a different skin (although I really like the Amber skin).

Raspberry Pi 2: Raspbian (ARMv6) v Linaro (ARMv7) Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, March 09 2015 @ 02:03 PM EST
Contributed by: fk

The Raspberry Pi Foundation make it pretty clear that Raspbian is the recommended operating system for the Raspberry Pi series of computers. Most of the Foundation's documentation and support directs users to Raspbian. The downloads section of their website does list other operating system images. But there are many more images available, and one really piqued my curiosity; a Ubuntu 14.10 / Linaro 15.01 "developer" image. Unlike Raspbian, this image is compiled for ARMv7/armhf.

Learn the Art of Computer Programming With These Great Free Beginner Books Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, February 01 2015 @ 02:32 PM EST
Contributed by: fk

Learning to code still remains a buzz. The problem facing any budding new programmer is how to start. Questions abound. What's the best programming language for a beginner? What's the best way to learn? A beginner might be tempted by reading books titled 'teach yourself [insert programming language] in 24 hours'. But don't be in such a rush. In my opinion, it is best to first get interested in programming, then seek out some experienced coders and discuss and discuss, and learn programming by doing, practising with lots of practical examples and the aid of an excellent introductory book.
