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]: 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]: Mounted /dev/sdm1 (Read-Write, label "Seagate-4TB", NTFS 3.1)

[clug] Gargoyle interactive fiction player

I found this application via Ubuntu Software Centre. It reads a wide 
range of interactive fiction file formats.

I have been using Gargoyle to play games from the Interactive Fiction 
Database.

Re: [clug] Fwd: Re: ideas for CLUG talk on 23rd of June?

    N.B. Randall is able to give us a talk  this coming Thursday
(23rd June) on his implementation of OpenStack to host OwnCloud (which
I understand he has converted over to NextCloud).

Who will be available to help with opening the room and setting up the
projector? (Bob, will you be available?)  

I can bring plastic cups for any drinks that people bring.

Thanks,

George.

[clug] 'Monument' photo/video storage: how to build one at home?

Monument Labs Inc [still fundraising, I believe]
<http://getmonument.com/howitworks.html>

This is an ARM device running some Linux variant, but with some extra software or maybe smartphone Apps.
It’s got WiFi, an SD-card and 2 USB ports to connect drives.

I’m trying to reconcile the cost of the unit (>US$100) with the the Raspberry Pi. Are the specs different enough?
[Does come with a power supply, I’m guessing]

Questions:
 - does anyone do something this at home/work currently?
   - what platforms would work?

 - One of the indexes they create is ‘faces' (+ date/time, camera).
    - Is there good Opensource to identify faces in photos?
      Does anyone use any of this software?

regards
steve

[clug] Nextcloud (the OwnCloud fork) 9 released

Anyone planning to switch from OwnCloud to Nextcloud?

Nextcloud forked OwnCloud a few weeks ago and just released their own
version 9 which is a drop-in upgrade to OwnCloud.

So why NextCloud? It is started by Frank Karlitschek and others from the
original OwnCloud team. They plan to make the entire thing, including
all of the "Enterprise" extensions open source:

[clug] firefox started rewriting http->https?

In the last few days I have a problem where the browser goes to https:// when I request http://.
This is very disruptive, for example http://www.bom.gov.au/ was working but https gets no response.
Other sites may accept https.

The first case was when I accessed my own server (at home) from my workstation, So requesting
	http://192.1683.7
goes to https:...
The server had no updates for a while so I doubt it is the source of the change.

This is firefox 47.0. I tested it on an ubuntu vm (same ff version) and there it works fine,
so I wonder what changed. I removed my proxy and disabled all add-ons to no avail.

Any ideas?
