After 30 years of a beard (short cropped), I shaved under my mouth leaving large mutton chops. However, I do not shave often so it grows in. Does not itch. It does grow slow. I have known guy that have longer five o'clock shadow than I have in two days.
After much fussing, I managed to get Ubuntu with the Unity desktop installed, and here I am in a FireFox browser posting on CP!
I'll write an article on this soon. You won't believe (or maybe you will) the number of websites and tries that I have gone through to get a desktop up and running. Not that it's actually necessary (or even desired) -- it was more an exercise of "it should be able to do this!"
Get a good (and large, 8GB or >) uSD card
Put Ubuntu 12.04.2 on it
Boot and install ubuntu-desktop (takes about 4 hours)
Also managed to get a 128GB SSD (on USB) mounted. Now I'm trying to move "home" onto the SSD but encountering a few issues.
Fun stuff, goofing around with all this.
That's cool. I've got a couple server processes that I have running on full blown desktop server machines. All they're doing is polling feeds and moving data to a NAS. I've been wondering about scaling down to something like this.
Noob question: How does a BeagleBone compare with something like a Raspberry Pi?
Never heard of it. Can't see the point of it (mind you I only spent 2 mins on the website) and anything which talks about 'The Application Programming eXperience, or APX' should probably be mercilessly destroyed! My APX is going bad-to-average today by the way, how's yours?
I've done a little bit of REST and I thought the idea of it was to simplify things. SOAP was too complicated (it is actually), and this was the answer. Now they want to create a whole new meta-language on top of it?
Well, there's another one I've not heard of. While some parts of it look quite promising, it looks to be a bit overkill to me. My RESTful APIs, nowadays, tend to be a node.js express application picking up the requests and handling them. It's very easy to use. For a moment, I was prepared to be impressed by this but I realised that the versioning they were talking about had absolutely nothing to do with API versioning - which would have been something I would be very interested in.
What do you see as the advantage to REST vs. something like SOAP? Mind you, from what I've been reading, REST is an architecture and SOAP is a protocol, so I think it's a bit like comparing apples and oranges.
But from what I've been reading regarding REST, I just don't get it. Looks like nothing more than HTTP get/post commands.
