W3C Rejected Appeal on Web DRM. EFF Resigns from W3C

Tue, 2017-09-19 21:59

EME aka Web DRM as supported W3C and others has the very real potential of Locking Linux out of the web, especially true in the Linux Desktop Space, and double true for the Fully Free Software version of Linux or Linux running on lesser used platforms like powerPC or ARM (rPi)

The primary use case for Linux today is Web Based technology, either serving or Browsing. The W3C plays (or played) and integral role in that. Whether you are creating a site that will be served by Linux, or using a Linux desktop to consume web applications the HTML5 Standard is critical to using Linux on the Web.

Recently the W3C rejected the final and last appeal by EFF over this issue, EME and Web DRM will now be a part of HTML5 Standard with none of the supported modifications or proposals submitted by the EFF to support Software Freedom, Security Research or User Freedom.

What aliases do you have that add options to common commands?

Tue, 2017-09-19 18:52


alias grep='grep --color=auto' alias ls='ls --color=auto --group-directories-first -N' alias ll='ls -l' alias la='ls -A' alias lf='ls -F' alias l.='ls -d .*' alias lh='ls -lh' alias lr='ls -R' alias l='ls' alias mkdir='mkdir -p' # technically not aliases but they do the same thing export LESS="-RM" export MAKEFLAGS=-j8

I almost never use the majority of those ls aliases. Idk why I even have some of them.

m3u like Youtube Playlist

Tue, 2017-09-19 18:51

Hi Is there any way to store multiple youtube links and play them as a list, just like m3u playlist?

I want to store and add more youtube links overtime to my lists, so I can play those lists later on without visiting in linux.

(I am no good for writing scripts. Sorry)

Managing and running commands on 20 Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 workstations

Tue, 2017-09-19 17:33

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a free or opensource software that would allow me to manage a couple of Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 workstation systems. At a minimum, I'm trying to find something that would allow me to write a single Terminal command and run it remotely on all managed ubuntu workstations from a management interface.

Does such a package exist for Ubuntu Desktop?
