Sorry for being 50 Shades of Wrong

I was at the wonderful FOSDEM this weekend just gone and met up with many fine folk (as always) unfortunately there were also many people I didn’t manage to catch up with. On the Sunday I attended a talk on The Tumbleweed Factory given by openSUSE’s very own Release Manager, Coolo. I made a statement about this talk, and have been challenged on that statement - I’m glad that I was challenged by one of our community members, because they were quite right to do so.

Pixel Limits With The Intel 945GME

He picked up his code machine gun and blasted away o/

He mentioned to me that his management had asked the SIG to formulate a plan for where they wanted to see their project in five years, and how they aimed to get there.

Storytelling with Storytlr

I thought it would be wise to document how I installed Storytlr as I feel the official documentation doesn’t list everything. The basic requirements to get storytlr working are – Apache, MySQL, PHP5 (with php5-tidy, and php5-mcrypt). So once you have the basic system requirements met, the next step is to download the latest stable release from here and extract the tarball in your target directory. So in your virtual host file make sure you have enabled AllowOverride
