Who knows about (LLNL) Visit?

https://wci.llnl.gov/codes/visit/home.html

In particular, who has run build_visit.sh... is there an IRC channel? 
Something a little more interactive than the mailing lists? (I admit, I 
haven't spent much time checking them out... yet.)

rhyme source code fot linux?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 27 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	guys,

	a zillion years ago when I was still hacking Everything in freebsd,
	I had a rhyme tarball that compiled into /usr/local/bin/rhyme.
	now I find the source missing some stuff.  while several hours of
	deep-hacking might do the trick, my shoulder is giving me severe
	grief such that I dont want to  risk looking for a
	ubuntu-friendly source.  [yes, I found a website ... etc.  it's 
	just that I never use anything in "the "cloud"; I do as much as
	possible here on thought.org.

	nutshell:  is there a rhyme {w/ source} for kde?

	tia,

	gary

	ps:  yeah, I  know that *they* know me down to my shirt size.
	it's just the principle![bar]

Reminder: Cascadia IT Conference Fri & Sat. Open welcome reception Thurs (tomorrow!) eve


http://casitconf.org is Friday and Saturday, but Thursday evening at Hotel Deca, from 6:30-9pm we have our welcome reception that is ALSO the monthly http://sasag.org meeting. The reception will be held in the Governor's Room.

You don't need to be registered LOPSA member to attend, and our Thurs evening reception is sponsored by http://siliconmechanics.com, so there will be food and mingling.

Unlike our normal monthly meetings, there won't be a tech talk. But some of our internationally famous (and some less famous ones too!) speakers will be present at the reception and you can talk with them about things system & network admin and devops.

Most Linux users do some amount of system administration, if only for their own systems. But if you do system administration professionally, or think you might want to this is a great place to be, with the perfect people to meet.

Paul

wicd debaucle on arch

Dear everyone,

Is there anyone that has had problems with wicd on Arch Linux?  I have 
looked around the web and there are forums filled with suggestions on how 
to fix it, but nothing that helps.  The problem is as follows:

I just started using xfce which uses wicd; before that I had simply stuck 
to dhcpcd and wpa_supplicant in the terminal.  A number of things now 
happen that I don't know how to account for:

1.) when I start up xfce, it gives me an error to the affect that wicd is 
unable to connect to dbus,

2.) the icon on the taskbar is a little exclamation point intended to 
show that the internet connection isn't working, even though if I have 
dhcpcd.service up and running, my internet connection is working,

3.) when I try to start wicd with systemctl, it fails; when I try to start 
it without systemctl, ostensibly it is working, but it still won't connect 
to the internet,

4.) daemon.log enters the following:
Starting WICD Network Manager... 
Started WICD Network Manager.
wicd.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
Unit wicd.service entered failed state. 
wicd.service holdoff time over, scheduling restart.
Cannot add dependency job for unit wicd.socket, ignoring: Unit wicd.socket failed to load: No 
such file or directory.
Stopping WICD Network Manager...

5.) all of this makes me think there is something wrong with the 
wicd.service file or something, but I am not totally sure.

Has anyone had these problems?  Does anyone know how to fix this?  Can 
anyone even tell with what little info I've given?  Let me know if you 
need more to go on and I will gladly provide what information will help.

In the Arch Linux forums, it was suggested that wicd be uninstalled and 
reinstalled to fix the problem.  This does fix the problem temporarily, 
but then it eventually comes back, so it really only treats a symptom, 
not the ailment.

Thanks in advance.

all best,
Lucas

d3?

Is anyone interested in d3js? I've taken Mike Bostock's _Les Miserables_ demo 
and adapted it to a sliding data window concept (yes, this is related to my 
CUDA master plan in some way or another).

There were a few interesting lessons learnt:

* objectifying links
* incrementally dropping and adding links/nodes
* retaining the previously computed positions of retained nodes
* exactly what the coupling is between svg and d3 (not much)
* getting the nodes (circles) back "on top" so that they'll get focus
