I think I may be done …

I am sorry to hear that, Scott. I can understand your feelings and have to say I feel in similar ways. I have wound down my participation over several years now, mainly because I saw the same deficiencies as you describe here. I never understood why a community that was subscribing to the CoC was so willing to take divisions and divisive actions as normal way of operating.

I hope our paths will cross again in the future on other exciting FLOSS projects.

ScottK might have something to say ...

I don’t have a lot more to say about the Ubuntu Community Council’s decision, backed up by the SABDFL, to, in secret, with no consultation with the rest of the leadership of the Kubuntu community (i.e. the Kubuntu Council) remove Jonathan Riddell than I’ve already said to them in the series of emails I’ve just made public.

Since I got involved in Ubuntu development in 2006, I’ve known we had a SABDFL.  I’ve never particularly liked it, but I understood it.  SABDFL created and funded both Canonical and Ubuntu.  His sand box, his rules.  Fair enough.  What I didn’t know until this week though was that we had more than one.

I invite people to re-read the Code of Conduct and consider how that relates to how the Ubuntu Community Council has handled their dispute with Jonathan Riddell.  I think their actions in no way comport to either the letter…

New recommended feature for missions at Empire Avenue

There is a new feature “recommended” for missions at Empire Avenue. However, the most cursory test already fails. I only selected “Empire Avenue” as my interest in networks, and expected to see only missions related to Empire avenue. However, it does not do the job.

Why is there again a feature that does not deliver what it seems to suppose to. The conclusion must be, Empire Avenue has never left alpha state.

Empire Avenue even more broken

Now no other profile than the own one by the ticker who requested it can be retrieved. This makes the whole API useless… Not sure why to have an API like this

Empire Avenue API broken again

And the Empire Avenue API is broken again. The profile info request used to allow a list of 100 tickers and would respond with the 100 responses in one call. However, apparently since today, there is no list anymore, just one ticker. With this it would take 720 hours to retrieve the info for each ticker available on Empire Avenue. So, it does not make sense to write any application using the API anymore. Why bother anymore with Empire Avenue… Empire Avenue is dead!

Massport, Boston Fire Conduct Fire Drill On Logan Airport Runway

CBS Boston

[worldnow id=9295649 width=385 height=288 type=video]

BOSTON (CBS) — The Massachusetts Port Authority conducted a drill Wednesday morning involving smoke and fire on the runway.

The drill involved what appeared to be a plane on fire. Boston Logan Airport tweeted the smoke and fire was part of a drill.

Heavy black smoke could be seen drifting over the airfield.

“It seems rather insensitive and inappropriate to me,” said Lynn Ellison from Beverly as she waited for her daughter’s flight to touch down.

Several people also took to Twitter and Boston Logan Airport’s Facebook page to complain about the poor timing. (Continued…)

“That is ridiculous. Have some respect. People died 12 years ago on flights originating out of your airport. How dare you,” one person wrote.

Another asked why authorities would schedule the drill on a day when travelers are already “on…

Suicide Watch Week 2: Lessons Learned

CBS Philly

By Justin Boylan

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Before we fly through my week 2 picks like a 53-play first half, let’s step back and learn some lessons from week 1 that could help us survive moving forward.

1. Picking against the Raiders is wise, but picking against the Jaguars is downright genius. (And what do you know, the two play each other this weekend. I’m not recommending this game because picking it means having to actually watch it. No thanks.)

2. I love Chip Kelly.

3. The Patriots offense, which was built to utilize their two mismatch-machine tight ends, might be in trouble in the first few weeks without those aforementioned tight ends (and now without Shane Vereen). Until Gronk comes back, I would avoid the potential trap.

4. The color red is doing Andy Reid no favors.

5. The 49ers forgive Anquan Boldin for Super Bowl XLVII. Also, Colin Kaepernick…
