Seattle Times has a new Website


http://seattletimes.com
 
The Seattle Times is one of the few remaining independently owned Newspapers in the USA, owned by the  Blethen family
http://kuow.org/post/frank-blethen-seattle-times-accidental-publisher
 
It contains regional (Pacific Northwest) and USA national news. 
 
I work there.  Other than being overworked,  it is an awesome place.  (APPLY FOR THE SENIOR LINUX SYS ADMIN JOB THERE I NEED GOOD HELP)
 
Please check out our new website (link above) and mobile apps.
If you like them please pass on the information.
If there is something you think can be improved, let us know.
If you have an idea for it also let us know.
 
The Tech section is hidden behind the Business subheader  (I've already complained).  If you agree, please let them know.
 
We are a smaller company than you would imagine by seeing our Newspaper or our Website and every comment gets read and intelligent arguments get read and get attention.
 
thanks,
Meryll Larkin

SnoCo Makers

FYI:  

We are starting up a "meetup" in Snohomish County for a MakerSpace,
hopefully leading to a real makerspace for projects:
http://www.meetup.com/SnoCo-Makers/

If you are in SnoCo (or north KingCo), consider joining.    If you know
of available spaces (already in use for this, or potential), let me know.

librreoffice and pdf?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 28 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	is there anybody in the linux community who can clue me in
	on how to print a pdf file without a few heaps  of short, fat,
	black lines?

	I used libreoffice to get my fancy Brother color+mono printer 
	to output C code {or plain-text}.  anything pdf,   nada.
	libreoffice gets increasing complex and I am lost.  I *did*
	use the pdftohtml utility; that output text and where was 
	graphics:: garbage.

	thanks in advance,

	gary

timer app?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 28 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	guys,

	is there any "timer" application that I can set to notify me 
	every, say, 3600 or 4500 [ or any N ].   my  system admin flew
	last summer and installed fedora-20.  it's among the poorer
	excuses for a linux distro { IMHO }....  I'm more used to the
	ubuntu flavor.  I remember some app that allowed me to notify
	me every [interval].  graphically.  

	ive tried korganizer of course but I am missing at least one 
	PIM  suite that I can't get installed, the Akonadi suite [??],
	or *some* dependency, but I'm drawing a blank.

	I could hack something in C, but if I'm away from my desk when
	the program rang its BEL, blah blah, blah...  .

	tx much,

	gary,
	  whose shoulder is starting to fall off

	ps: I remember using a who/where/what/????/  that had a ~/.dot 
	file and popped up a gtk+ rectangle.  "yum" says "huh?"... .

Intel Edison events

FYI, 2 upcoming events from Intel, at SoDo MakerSpace.
Apparently a handful of Edison dev boards will be given out.

It appears Edison runs Linux, at least Yocto 1.6.

And in addition to Mac/Win, Intel provides Linux tools.
