I prefer to think of Zimbra as an albatross around the neck of whatever parent company happens to own it at any given time.

And quite frankly, people who push "open core" software deserve to fail.
Zimbra helped themselves to the work of hundreds of other developers who built the open source underpinnings of their product: Cyrus IMAP, MySQL, Postfix, OpenLDAP, etc. etc. etc. Then they release their software as a *barely* functional open source tier, but if you want it to do anything useful you have to pay for the expensive version.

Let's face it: anyone stupid enough to overpay for email and groupware is going to buy Exchange. Open source fans are going to want *true* open source.
I happen to prefer Citadel. And everyone else is simply dumping their email into Teh Cloud (tm).

"Open core" neatly combines the worst of both open source and proprietary software. It is my sincere hope that Zimbra continues to languish, eventually becoming unfunded and abandoned like Hula/Bongo.

For years now, Bongo has had little fits and spurts of development, but nothing significant. It seems that Alex Hudson has finally decided the project is dead because the web site stopped functioning earlier this year, and it doesn't look like there's anyone hanging out in #bongo anymore. A few people drop by to say hi to each other but they don't talk about Bongo.

Hopefully they've realized that there's really no point :)

So, lately, I've been getting into video editing a little, using something called Lightworks.

I was having a difficult time figuring out why my dissolves looked so shitty, until I learned that you can't use all of your source video if you want the dissolves to work. You have to set an out-point to about a second or so earlier, and the in-point similarly (for the other video to which you are dissolving) so the effect has something with which to work.

Learning that, I see that it does a fantastic job of creating dissolves.

This means I can make a proper intro and outro for these videos I'm trying to make (Let's Play stuff).

http://blog.safecast.org/ a japanese community collecting radiation maps.

They have a (new) measurement kit named 'bGeigie-nano' consisting of an arduino, gps & wifi radios:

while 450$ may sound much for a kit, compare it with commercialy available radiation meters:

Going to the TAPR/ARRL Digital Communications Conference (tapr.org/dcc) tomorrow. Super excited for this.

Among the speakers is Erik Westgard, who will present "Applications and Infrastructure for Marathon Support." It may be a variation on this presentation (http://www.slideshare.net/ny9d/network1q), which mentions in passing (on slide 11) how
Citadel is used for coordination and communication, including text mode over packet.

I think this is insanely amusing. I would love to run a BBS over HF radio. Just because.

Anyway, fiscal year realities mean that work is not paying for me to attend after all, but the LT said I could just go on my own (which I'd already planned to do) and take a pass day instead of taking chargeable leave. So that's something.

Bruce Perens will also be speaking this weekend. It should be terribly interesting.

Hey Sig, say hi to Erik for me.  I wondered why he did not stop by my office with some gear for the Twin Cities Marathon today, but I suppose he forgot he was busy.  I agree, he is a super amusing, but also good at getting things done and building a quirky community.  Yes, the Citadel usage is real (I have some first hand knowledge in that area).  I wish I could go the the DCC some day.   If only it could come back to Minnesota, but the last time was back in '94.

entertaining read. I like at most:

 

Dave Cridland writes:

"You're correct in your assertion that framed data would mean clean binary transfers, but that isn't a goal of XMPP - anyone shipping binary data directly through XMPP is simply doing something inefficient. If you do want to ship large binary objects, it's more efficient to send them either via email, or send a URL via XMPP, and ship the data by a more suitable protocol."

 

Binary, Email and efficient in one sentence, that could only be said by an XML-Zealot.

Gads.

Shipping binary information via e-mail, described as 'efficient'?

Screwing around with my Pi a little more.

It has a very nice graphics card in it, so I want to compile omxplayer so I can fart around with the graphics capabilities from source.

I probably should have stuck with g++ instead of trying to move to clang, though. I don't think clang likes the standard library currently installed.
