Dendrochronology :: dating of tree rings,  generally annual
Dendrochronology :: dating of tree rings,  generally annual
"Growth rings are the result of new growth in the vascular cambium, a layer of cells near the bark that is classified as a lateral meristem. This growth in diameter is known as secondary growth. Visible rings result from the change in growth speed through the seasons of the year, thus one ring usually marks the passage of one year in the life of the tree. Adequate moisture and a long growing season result in a wide ring. A drought year may result in a very narrow one. Alternating poor and favorable conditions, such as mid summer droughts, can result in several rings forming in a given year. Missing rings are rare in oak and elm trees -- the only recorded instance of a missing ring in oak trees occurred in the year 1816, also known as the Year Without a Summer. Trees from the same region will tend to develop the same patterns of ring widths for a given period. These patterns can be compared and matched ring for ring with trees growing in the same geographical zone and under similar... more... - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Use Toothpaste To Polish Silver
"Next time you need to clean silver cutlery or jewelry, reach for toothpaste instead of expensive silver polish. Snapguide user Shayne shares this simple technique for cleaning old silver. All you need to do is rub the toothpaste on like soap, and rub it off with a paper towel. The results are pretty remarkable. She adds that tartar control toothpaste will work best, since it contains the most hydrated silica, but anything in your medicine cabinet should do a decent job." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Oracle Makes More Moves To Kill Open Source MySQL - http://techcrunch.com/2012...
Oracle Makes More Moves To Kill Open Source MySQL
"Oracle is holding back test cases in the latest release of MySQL. It’s a move that has all the markings of the company’s continued efforts to further close up the open source software and alienate the MySQL developer community. The issue stems back to a recent discovery that the latest MySQL release has bug fixes but without a single one having any test cases associated with it. That creates all sorts of problems for developers who have no assurance that the problem is actually fixed. It’s pretty clear that Oracle is trying to make it as difficult as possible to use MySQL. The result is a wave of unsettlement in the developer community about what Oracle considers open and what it sees as closed." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Goobuntu :: Google's in-house desktop Ubuntu Linux
"Ubuntu Linux is Google's desktop of choice and it's called Goobuntu. But almost no one outside of Google knew exactly what was in it or what roles Ubuntu Linux plays on Google's campus, until now. Today, August 29th, Thomas Bushnell, the tech lead of the group that manages and distributes Linux to Google's corporate desktops unveiled Goobuntu from behind Google's curtain at LinuxCon, the Linux Foundation's annual North American technical conference, First things first, can you download Goobuntu to run it yourself? Well yes and no. Bushnell explained that “Goobuntu is simply a light skin over standard Ubuntu.” In particular, Google uses the latest long term support (LTS) of Ubuntu. That means that if you download a copy of the latest version of Ubuntu, 12.04.1, you will, for most practical purposes, be running Goobuntu. Google uses the LTS versions because the two-years between releases is much more workable than the every six-month cycle of ordinary Ubuntu releases. Besides, Google also tries to update and replace its hardware every two-years so that syncs nicely as well." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Adobe Pulls Flash Player From Google Store - http://allthingsd.com/2012081...
Adobe Pulls Flash Player From Google Store
"Adobe’s capitulation on mobile Flash, which began last year with the announcement it would be scrapping further mobile Flash Player development, got real today with the official abandonment of the player on Google’s Android mobile OS. Early this morning, Adobe dropped the Flash Player browser plugin from the Google Play store. While pre-Jelly Bean versions of Android can continue to run Flash if it’s installed, and Jelly Bean devices can install it via workaround, Adobe recommends against doing so, as it doesn’t plan to offer security updates and bug fixes for existing versions of Flash for Android after September 2013, and attempting to run the plugin on Jelly Bean may result in “unpredictable behavior.” The removal of Flash from Google Play comes as Adobe refocuses its mobile video efforts around HTML5, something the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs suggested it do years ago." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Why Flash failed on Android, and what it means for Adobe
"The performance and battery life issues were probably the most vexing ones Adobe had to contend with. Flash was designed to run on desktop x86 systems. The lower-power ARM chips that made smartphones great also hindered Flash’s performance. Getting its plug-in to work on ARM devices was like hammering a square peg into a round hole. Adobe did it, but it was a mess. You’ve probably watched plenty of videos on your mobile device, and they worked fine. That’s because ARM devices have hardware video decoding for H.264 video. Virtually all the HTML5 video you’ve ever come across is just an embedded H.264 video in an MP4 wrapper. Phones are very good at decoding this kind of file without draining the battery. Flash could never compete with this kind of built-in performance." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

"The problem is that github is most emphatically not git. If a person using git (and therefore send-email) wants to collaborate with someone using github, one of the two of them has to give in and use an interface they deliberately decided not to use. There’s no way around it: github does not supplement git, github replaces git. Deciding whether to use github versus just git is an either/or proposition. Two products with nearly identical functionality: one is open-source, and the other is closed-source and depends on the other. Not a hard choice. The github engineers quite clearly see github as a product built on git (the technology) rather than a product operating within git (the protocol). They do not improve or contribute to git itself, but focus instead on improving github in ways that make it harder and harder to use continue using stock git while collaborating with people using github, despite the functionality being fundamentally the same. “We think you should use github for... more... - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Gina Trapani :: This Is How I Work
"On my phones and tablet, I spend most of my time in Gmail, Twitter, and Foursquare. I love Instapaper for reading, Evernote for recipes, and because I'm directionally challenged, I couldn't live without Google Maps, especially with navigation on Android. I code Java and PHP in Eclipse, a powerful, open source IDE. TextMate is my favorite text editor. Git is my version control system of choice. GitHub is the best thing that ever happened to all of my open source coding projects. For podcasting video and/or audio, I use a Countryman E6 earset, a Logitech HD Webcam C510, and Skype with the Ecamm Call Recorder. Our listeners can livestream the shows and chat in IRC as we go. Textual is my favorite IRC client for that. When I'm not coding or podcasting, I'm on the web. Chrome is my primary browser, especially since it works so well on Android and syncs between devices. On Chrome on my Mac, I've pinned Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Voice tabs. On the desktop, I spend a lot of time at... more... - Adriano from Bookmarklet
