shundhammer/qphotoview: Qt-based photo viewer that concentrates on what photographers need.
I like how salty this guy is about all the "other" Linux image viewers. Gave a shoutout to 'xv' though!

TermiT/Flycut: Clean and simple clipboard manager for developers
See also:
Forked from:

It's just OK, but there's still no way to reliably ignore clipboard input from specific programs (like clipboard managers). Maccy pretty much gets the job done.

Re: We plan to transition from RT to GitHub -
It's interesting to hear people call out their beefs with GitHub, like:
I actually do want credit for my work; but I'm not going to have my (limited) web presence tied to a flashy, for-profit site.

jwz: Palm's App Catalog, part 2 |
Echoes of the App Store?
We still really have no idea what this second-class-citizen app catalog will look like, since they say it won't exist for two to three months. That means it doesn't help those of us who have working apps today that we would like to get into the hands of our users today, but it's a step in the right direction, assuming that getting things into the second-class-citizen catalog is a whole lot easier than getting it into the "real" catalog has been so far. (It won't surprise you to learn that based on their past behavior, I don't think that's a particularly likely assumption. But we'll see.)

But this is all needlessly complicated.

Here's what I want:

A developer makes the executable of their application available on their own web site.
A user visits the developer's web site via the web browser on their phone, and clicks on the link.
A dialog box asks, "Are you sure you want to do this crazy thing?"
The application installs. Done.

That's how it worked on PalmOS. That's how it works on desktop computers! Anything more complicated than that is just stupid.

The CADT Model |
This is, I think, the most common way for my bug reports to open source software projects to ever become closed. I report bugs; they go unread for a year, sometimes two; and then (surprise!) that module is rewritten from scratch -- and the new maintainer can't be bothered to check whether his new version has actually solved any of the known problems that existed in the previous version.

I'm so totally impressed at this Way New Development Paradigm. Let's call it the "Cascade of Attention-Deficit Teenagers" model, or "CADT" for short.

StudioSysAdmins Thread: Aspera vrs OpenSource. |
Comparing Aspera's FASP to open source is also unrealistic. UDT and others do not come with any level of support or guarantee of performance or compatibility. Commercial solutions, however, are relied on by hundreds of companies that need common platforms to predictably and reliably exchange data. The last thing I need is to spend hours on the phone with a customer explaining how to build a binary from source on his Mac running 10.5, then tell him how to use the binary from command line. Been there, done that, ain't gonna happen again.

globus-toolkit/ at globus_6_branch · globus/globus-toolkit |
Why we are ceasing support of the open source Globus Toolkit. In a word, funding. The open source Globus Toolkit, like any software, requires constant effort to answer support requests, apply security patches, and perform other maintenance. This work has long been financed by grants, primarily from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). However, our last such grant ends this fall and, after extensive discussions with funding agencies and Globus Toolkit users, we see little opportunity for further funding for such support activities.
