Source: LibreOffice the better Office
It is just the proverbial hiccup, they say- but when hiccups are repetitive, it is a sign of acid reflux, my dear sir. Edited from the original post on 13 Nov, 2016. It was written in haste and ang…
We’ve all done it before. We’re typing fast and then realize that we had the Caps Lock key on and the case on our text is bACKWARDS. That’s easy to change in Microsoft Word, but what if you use the…
I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.8.0-18-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest kernel 4.8.0-rc8 released 160926.
Install kernel 4.8.0-18-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.6) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9).

People liked the city, the venue (FIT BUT campus is really, really nice), the parties, and catering during the conference. TDF board even lifted Red Hat to the highest sponsorship level for the amount of work we did for the conference. The only major bummer we had was no online streaming. It’s quite easy to set it up with the university’s built-in video recording system, but the university didn’t allow it in the end. Nevertheless, we treated online streaming as nice-to-have.
