I've never once made a model rocket. I've always wanted to, but apartfrom "tube with explodey rocket part", I really didn't know where tostart with designing. I recently found an open-source application thatshould help me with my lack of rocket science know-how: OpenRocket.
On Jan 21, 2008, Marie Smith Jones died. Her death was not just a loss of one human being, she was the last speaker of the Eyak language. Eyak was spoken in southern, central Alaska. We permanently lost one color from the mosaic of our limited linguistic diversity. With a language, not only a language dies, but with it a part of a community's history, intellectual and cultural diversity, and cultural identity.
The embedded systems Linux distro, OpenWRT, has taken a step into the 1990s and added native IPv6 support. The release candidate is code-named “Barrier Breaker” and runs the Linux 3.0 kernel. OpenWRT 14.07's IPv6 support will at this point be of only limited end-user interest. However, it's an important move for the future, as a feature that might encourage more consumer kit vendors to implement OpenWRT, and it helps position the OS for Internet of Things applications that are going to need v6 support.
If you have a missing default gateway on your Redhat system you can add new route as per network interface or globally. Defining default gateway using ifcfg files, that is, defining it as per network interface basis takes a precedence over global system wide default gateway configuration defined by /etc/sysconfig/network configuration file.
"The ousting of Eich, the DRM problem -- all those imbroglios have tarnished the image of Firefox," said Google+ blogger Alessandrom Ebersol. So, on one side, "agnostic users left Firefox because they were told its new CEO was a conservative bigot. The folks who care about freedom, privacy and open Internet left Firefox because of the DRM module to play Netflix."
National Instruments unveiled a 2 x 3-inch module that runs real-time Linux on a Xilinx hybrid ARM/FPGA SoC, and can be programmed graphically with LabView. NI’s new “sbRIO-9651? system-on-module (SOM) is aimed at simplifying the design of custom data acquisition and control systems, by offering full compatibility with the NI LabView graphical programming environment. Additionally, the module’s core hardware and software compatibility with NI’s cRIO-9068 “CompactRIO” controller is said to further accelerate custom designs by letting programmers develop and test their software on an off-the-shelf system prior to the availability of custom hardware based on the SOM. To that end, the sbRIO-9651 SOM and cRIO-9068 controller system both use the same Xilinx Zynq-7020 SoC, and run a common “NI Linux Real Time” software stack.
Debian Developer Jon Dowland writes: "It appears I have switched for good. I’ve been meaning to write about this for some time, but I couldn’t quite get the words right. I doubted I could express my frustrations in a constructive, helpful way, even if I think that my experiences are useful and my discoveries valuable, perhaps I would put them across in a way that seemed inciteful rather than insightful. I wasn’t sure anyone cared. Certainly the GNOME community doesn’t seem interested in feedback." What can we say to that?
Flock 2014 will be held in Prague on the 6-9 August [he]#8212[/he] that is less than a month away! In case you don’t know, Flock is a conference for Fedora contributors and users to come together, discuss new ideas, work to make those ideas a reality, and continue to promote the core values of the Fedora community: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First.
In this tutorial I use the hostname server1.example.com with the IP address 192.168.0.100. These settings might differ for you, so you have to replace them where appropriate.
Infinity Runner is a great looking first person action game that involves a lot of running. We give it a try to see how it performs.
Mozilla believes success in the 21st century depends on digital literacy: the skills people need to read, write and participate on the web. Maker Party is all about teaching these skills in a fun, hands-on way. Participants meet up with others at events of all sizes to explore the how and why of building apps and webpages with code, design, media and interactive elements.
We are excited to announce the release of Zorin OS 9 Core and Ultimate. The main focus for Zorin OS 9 has been on stability and the refinement of Zorin OS' wide array of incredible features.

On Indiegogo, DPTechnics is prepping an OpenWRT Linux- and Atheros AR9331-based COM and baseboard combo to create a $35 open source SBC aimed at schools. Belgian father-and-son startup DPTechnics is promoting its new open-spec DPT Board as an educational tool for budding embedded developers. Just as the similarly priced Raspberry Pi has been seeded in U.K. schools, DPTechnics is working with schools in Belgium to integrate the board in their curricula.
