uname -a). It is unclear why those patches are necessary since the ARMv7 Armada 385 CPU has been supported in Linux since at least 4.2-rc1, but it is common for OpenWRT ports to ship patches to the kernel, either to backport missing functionality or perform some optimization. There has been some pressure from backers to petition Turris to "speedup the process of upstreaming Omnia support to OpenWrt". It could be that the team is too busy with delivering the devices already ordered to complete that process at this point. The software is available on the CZ-NIC GitHub repository and the actual Linux patches can be found here and here. CZ.NIC also operates a private GitLab instance where more software is available. There is technically no reason why you wouldn't be able to run your own distribution on the Omnia router: OpenWRT development snapshots should be able to run on the Omnia hardware and some people have installed Debian on Omnia. It may require some customization (e.g. the kernel) to make sure the Omnia hardware is correctly supported. Most people seem to prefer to run TurrisOS because of the extra features. The hardware itself is also free and open for the most part. There is a binary blob needed for the 5GHz wireless card, which seems to be the only proprietary component on the board. The schematics of the device are available through the Omnia wiki, but oddly not in the GitHub repository like the rest of the software.

What does happiness signify to you, I asked him, if it isn t based on wealth and comfort? Happiness for me is a combination of feeling good about myself and having love, he said. And to feel good about myself, I have to do things that convince me I deserve it. ( ) The point is, even though it s sad to see people being foolish, there s no use giving up. Nothing good can come of giving up. That just means you lose completely, right away.Richard Stallman on the 30th anniversary of the GNU Manifesto. It s amazing to think that a broken printer lead to the creation of the Free Software movement which, many years later, would give me a professional career, an education, and incredible friends around the world. Which reminds me I still keep the sticker Richard personally handed at the end of his first talk in Per , back in August 2003: Bonus: Enjoy The Free Software Song by The GNU/Stallmans.
( ) a crazy story about Mel nearly dying in a crash on Dead Man s Curve on Hollywood Boulevard and about the moment two weeks later when Bugs Bunny emerged from Mel s coma before Mel did. In fact, according to neurosurgeon Louis Conway who attended to Mel at the time, it seemed as though Bugs Bunny was trying to save his life.The audacious rescue plan that might have saved space shuttle Columbia
But imagine an alternate timeline for the Columbia mission in which NASA quickly realized just how devastating the foam strike had been. Could the Columbia astronauts have been safely retrieved from orbit?Ocean Gravity: Riding sea currents

Phoblographer: It looks like many of these images have artificial lighting in them. What s your gear setup, and how do you introduce so much light into the scene from your car? Lever: About 9 months ago, I affixed a Mola beauty dish onto the roof rack of my 75 Volvo and juice it with a profoto bi-tube. This takes a bit of practice, as making a turn changes the light completely, which I always try to keep balanced. The Canon 5D3 with a 24mm f1.4 is set up on a tripod. The strobe has allowed me to capture more detail as well as creating a somewhat surreal feel to the sets.The Invisible Woman: A conversation with Bj rk
Pitchfork: The world has a difficult time with the female auteur. B: I have nothing against Kanye West. Help me with this I m not dissing him this is about how people talk about him. With the last album he did, he got all the best beatmakers on the planet at the time to make beats for him. A lot of the time, he wasn t even there. Yet no one would question his authorship for a second. If whatever I m saying to you now helps women, I m up for saying it. For example, I did 80% of the beats on Vespertine and it took me three years to work on that album, because it was all microbeats it was like doing a huge embroidery piece. Matmos came in the last two weeks and added percussion on top of the songs, but they didn t do any of the main parts, and they are credited everywhere as having done the whole album. [Matmos ] Drew [Daniel] is a close friend of mine, and in every single interview he did, he corrected it. And they don t even listen to him. It really is strange.In Defense of the Selfie Stick
When you ask someone to take a picture of you, technically, they are the photographer, and they own the copyright of your picture. ( ) All of a sudden, your backpacking adventure in Europe requires you to pack a stack of legal contracts. Now your exchange goes from Can you take a picture of us? to Can you take a picture of us, making sure that the church is on the top right corner, and also, I am going to need you to sign this paper .I don t know what s with the selfie stick hate. Let people have fun, it doesn t hurt. If anything, it prevents them from asking you to take their photo, and if we already established you are the kind of people not a big fan of strangers, all the better, right? Why Top Tech CEOs Want Employees With Liberal Arts Degrees
Both Yi and Sheer recognize that the scientific method is valuable, with its emphasis on logic and reason, especially when dealing with data or engineering problems. But they believe this approach can sometimes be limiting. When I collaborate with people who have a strictly technical background, says Yi, the perspective I find most lacking is an understanding of what motivates people and how to balance multiple factors that are at work outside the realm of technology.Interesting food for thought, specially if you know an engineer that ditches the arts as of little value for personal growth in their careers/life.
