TL/DR: I am going by car on route Riga-Warsaw-Dresden-Debconf15-Lyon-Genoa-Venice-Vienna-Riga and I can take passengers along the way too.

TV shows

Posted by: aigarius 9 months, 1 week ago

A big part of a person can be glimpsed by others via shared experiences. For many years a typical part of my life has been watchin an episode or two of some TV series while preparing and eating dinner every evening and a couple more for brunch on weekends. And some TV series I actually binge-watched on purpose. So, what I have seen over the years can be interesting for others, also after a few years you start to forget things, so it will also be useful for myself later on.

Care to second

Posted by: aigarius 10 months, 2 weeks ago

Systemd discussions are back! Wait, don't run away, it is not as bad as it sounds! Noone is seriosly proposing to change the init system back a few weeks before the freeze. In fact none of the proposals so far would have any effect on jessie release. So, please relax and put the pitchforks down.

Distributing third party applications via Docker?

Posted by: aigarius in debconf14, debian, Debian-planet, docker, games, idea, programming, systemd, 11 months, 1 week ago

Recently the discussions around how to distribute third party applications for "Linux" has become a new topic of the hour and for a good reason - Linux is becoming mainstream outside of free software world. While having each distribution have a perfectly packaged, version-controlled and natively compiled version of each application installable from a per-distribution repository in a simple and fully secured manner is a great solution for popular free software applications, this model is slightly less ideal for less popular apps and for non-free software applications. In these scenarios the developers of the software would want to do the packaging into some form, distribute that to end-users (either directly or trough some other channels, such as app stores) and have just one version that would work on any Linux distribution and keep working for a long while.

Wireless photo workflow

Posted by: aigarius in Debian-planet, hardware, idea, photo, travel 1 year, 5 months ago

For a while now I've been looking for ways to improve my photo workflow - to simplify and speed up the process. Now I've gotten a new toy to help that along - a Panasonic FlashAir SD card with WiFi connectivity. I was pretty sure that build-in workflows of some more automated solutions would not be a perfect fit for me, so I got this card which has a more manual workflow and a reasonable API, so I could write my own.

Photo migration from Flickr to Google Plus

Posted by: aigarius in Debian-planet, floss, hack, photo, programming, python, 1 year, 5 months ago

I've been with Flickr since 2005 now, posting a lot of my photos there, so that other poeple from the events, that I usually take photos of, could enjoy them. But lately I've become annoyed with it. It is very slow to uplaod to and even worse to get photos out of it - there is no large shiny button to Download a set of photos, like I noticed in G+. So I decided to try and copy my photos over. I am not abandoning or deleting my Flickr account yet, but we'll see.

Kā ir jāpārtaisa Rīgas Satiksmes e-talona sistēma

Posted by: aigarius 1 year, 6 months ago

Esmu mazliet paceļojis pa pasauli un esmu redzējis vairākas sistēmas sabiedriskā transporta apmaksai un katru reizi atgriežoties Latvijā un Rīgā mani pārņem tāds mikslis ar sajūtām, kurā ir iespraucies gan optimisms par to, ka mums ir bezkontakta e-talonu sistēma, gan bezcerīgums par to cik tizli tā ir pie mums realizēa salīdzinot ar to kāda ir pasaules labakā prakse un kā tas vispār varētu ideālā izskatīties.
