[clug] Uni of Glasgow Haskell Course


Saw this and thought it might be of interest to the list. A free online 
course offered by Future Learn which seems to be the UK's answer to the 
US based Moocs. Took one of their courses a couple of years ago and now 
I get email news letters about up coming courses including the one that 
contained the announcement for this course .The course itself is run by 
the University of Glasgow - the Glasgow in the Glasgow Haskell Compiler. 
Course details can be found at...

Functional Programming in Haskell: Supercharge Your Coding

Get an introduction to Haskell, the increasingly popular functional 
programming language, with this University of Glasgow course.

Replying to my original post:

I switched my parents over to a 25/5 plan on iiNet. Some speeds now:

* Downloading HD video from youtube using youtube-dl: 2.2 MB/s
* Downloading a tarball from my Linode host (New Jersey?): 2.1 MB/s
* Apt-get update using us.archive.ubuntu.com: 1.9 MB/s
* Wget of
http://download.skype.com/linux/skype-ubuntu-precise_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb: 2.15MB/s
* Wget of http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/test/100meg.test: 2.8 MB/s

In my opinion these are in the right ball park. Live and learn. Your
mileage may vary :)

[clug] Open Data Democracy

Does the Australian Electoral Commission publish
 the raw votes data for each electorate?

ie: This preference pattern scored this many votes.

So other implementations of the counting algorithm can be run against it?

[clug] ntfs-3g anyone?

I am having issues with a 2.5" USB disk.

1)
on fedora 19 I get these log messages when mounting the fs
	ntfs-3g[13859]: Version 2013.1.13 integrated FUSE 27
	ntfs-3g[13859]: Mounted /dev/sdj1 (Read-Write, label "Seagate-4TB", NTFS 3.1)
	ntfs-3g[13859]: Cmdline options: rw,nodev,nosuid,uid=500,gid=500,dmask=0077,fmask=0177,uhelper=udisks2
	ntfs-3g[13859]: Mount options: rw,nodev,nosuid,uhelper=udisks2,allow_other,nonempty,relatime,default_permissions,fsname=/dev/sdj1,blkdev,blksize=4096
	ntfs-3g[13859]: Global ownership and permissions enforced, configuration type 1
The mount is now accessible.

On f22 I get
	ntfs-3g[29109]: Version 2016.2.22 integrated FUSE 27
	ntfs-3g[29109]: Mounted /dev/sdm1 (Read-Write, label "Seagate-4TB", NTFS 3.1)

	ntfs-3g[29109]: Global ownership and permissions enforced, configuration type 1
The mount point is not accessible, what I get is
	$ ls -l /run/media/eyal/
	ls: cannot access /run/media/eyal/Seagate-4TB: Transport endpoint is not connected
	total 0
	d????????? ? ? ? ?            ? Seagate-4TB

If I mount manually
	$ sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sdm1 /usb
I see
	ntfs-3g[29335]: Version 2016.2.22 integrated FUSE 27
	ntfs-3g[29335]: Mounted /dev/sdm1 (Read-Write, label "Seagate-4TB", NTFS 3.1)
