Looking at multiple aspects…

on the OpenSimulator sim, on the server side but the images you are really interest in are these:

These images of the base avatar, are being viewed in Firestorm Viewer on the same machine running OpenSimulator, from here we will connect with many other sims in cyberspace in the future. For now, this is a singularity 🙂

Server Side, Console view



Software to build…

in the virtual environment called OpenSimulator that we use and program, setup and maintain, you are being introduced to the world behind the places like InWorldz™ and SL® aka Second Life® 

Second Life Your World. Your Imagination.
Go to Second Life? http://www.secondlife.com

Those “places” are “wall gardens” (aka Closed platform) as they are known in the Free Libre, GNU, Open Source communities.

from Wikipedia A closed platform, walled garden or closed ecosystem[1][2] is a software system where the carrier or service provider has control over applications, content, and media, and restricts convenient access to non-approved applications or content. This is in contrast to an open platform, where consumers generally have unrestricted access to applications, content, and much more.

I am leaving you bread crumbs as you follow me through the process of getting the OpenSimulator up and running on a computer right here next to me 🙂

Open Source Bug Lifetime: 10-2016 : Avg 5 Years (See more)


linux-bug-lifetime-2016-10So a bug has a chance of surviving for 5 years on average so far in the Linux code base. Interesting.

Here is a truth

BUGS are $ (aka bucks) Cashola, dinero, yen, etc. So Bugs = $

This is why Bill Gates knew that people will pay you to fix the bugs. Pay you lots of $ to eliminate the problems. Only assholes consciously create bugs 😀 ?

Thus, not every bug should be eliminated and for those, some create more and some eliminate some. Humans are prone to mistakes correct?

Programming can be fun. Some of us are bug hunters, bug makers or bug breakers. Some cowboys breed their own special breed of bugs 😉 *chuckle*

Some of us quietly go about our work without much fan fare or recognition. We are not in the game for that reason. Which one are you?



Build your own search engine

Create Your Own Search Engine with Python

Here’s another beautiful example of the power of Open Source. I thought about building my own search engine. “Work smart, not hard” is something smart developers do. They are lazy. If they can re-use their own code or someone else has done a lot of the heavy lifting, bonus. Re-use the code. Re-cycle the code. Re-purpose the code. So here we go. Using Python and other open source projects we build bigger software using other building blocks of working, functional code. Our efforts can contribute back into the biosphere of the community of developers that work on various pieces of software. Therefore multiplying one anothers’ efforts. A rather magickal practice that magnifies everyone’s ability to affect outcomes, in a positive way for the greatest good of all.


Building on an Open foundation of information, using Open Source Hardware and Software

Like this article/how-to on setting up WordPress and LAMP stack on your Raspberry Pi (aka any system 😉 more about this.

Build first, secure/repair/modify/improve/maintainbest, prepare for the worst case, best outcomes for all to remain truly Open.

Initially in the early days of technology, there were “makers, breakers, creators of code” and in the end are we not all creating life in our own unique way?

I am sharing this knowledge and information with the hopes that it will help someone else, around the globe, somehow and I giving this Openly and Freely to everyone else.



A Home NOC-in-a-Box™

Nextcloud Box – a private cloud and IoT solution for home users

Companies launch Raspberry Pi-based device to enable consumers greater control over their data

Stuttgart, Germany – September 16, 2016 – Nextcloud, Canonical and WDLabs, are today launching the Nextcloud Box, a secure, private, self-hosted cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) platform giving consumers a way to take back control over their personal data. Nextcloud Box makes hosting a personal cloud simple and cost effective whilst maintaining a secure private environment that can be expanded with additional features via apps.

The Nextcloud Box consists of a hard drive and a case, complemented by a Raspberry Pi 2 or a similar credit-card sized computer. The pre-configured, easy-to-use platform handles file storage and syncing, communication and more, requires no maintenance and enables users to install more functionality through apps like Spreed, OpenHab and Collabora Online. The box offers 1TB of storage at the price point of Eur 70. For information on where to buy please visit nextcloud.com/box

This is a start. A company planting a seed using the Raspberry Pi, a small single-board computer. Open source at the heart of this idea and some much more 🙂

Our project, Dreaming About Open Hardware, aka NOC-in-a-Box™ shares a deep kinship of its heritage due to Open Source 🙂


Get to know JACK

JACK :JACK Audio Connection Kit, is what this article is about.

JACK is a Open Source Project, and they say it best.

Have you ever wanted to take the audio output of one piece of software and send it to another? How about taking the output of that same program and send it to two others, then record the result in the first program? Or maybe you’re a programmerwho writes real-time audio and music applications and who is looking for a cross-platform API that enables not only device sharing but also inter-application audio routing, and is incredibly easy to learn and use? If so, JACK may be what you’ve been looking for.

In my particular case I am using this and many other Open Source tools to take full advantage of the technology I have around me.

JACK’s source code is available and is available on Windows, Linux and OS X.
