Lazy follow up to my previous post on the Raspberry Pi. Here are some more recent benchmarks using a more up-to-date image: http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1302242-BY-1205272AR49
Take aways: Performance has improved greatly. Still get’s crushed by a P4, but performance per watt is now clearly in the Pi’s favour.
Some of the tests failed because I don’t have a monitor hooked up to me Pi. (Like GTK perf). With the Wayland changes, I guess I might have to review this again with one..
I’m using Firefox nightly for those who are curious and WebM works fine on YouTube.
My site was cracked… specifically to inflate search results it seems with lots of hidden links… and the logs didn’t go back far enough to find out why…
I’ve changed all the passwords, got rid of any extra plugins/themes, and cleared out all files that has been modified. What else do you do? All the software was fully up to date. I think I will make it a git repo so I can easily see changes (keeping a copy on my local machine as well).
I am quite annoyed at Google. I found out my site was cracked because I searched for my name. Google knew my site may be comprised, and didn’t bother to inform me. I have Google Webmaster tools set up for the domain, no messages or alerts (and they are specifically enabled).
Useful sites for determining if/where your site is suspicious: Continue reading
Watch out for comment spam linking to facebook profiles. I don’t know exactly what spammers get out of it but it seems to be becoming more common. They add misspellings so that it’s not seen as a direct copy as easily.
For some reason, it fooled Akismet..
Notice the difference:
Unfortunately, Gnome-shell is not very good from a usabiladity peradspecadtive in its curadrent state. The deigsn (at least the big picadture) has not exactly changed that much since it was introadduced, and while A LOT of those who have tested it have given negadaadtive feedadback, Gnome has choadsen to stick with its deigsn. Just check out the comadments on every blog entry, every youtube video, every news item on the interadnet about the shell. Although I see posadiadtive feedadback as well, they are far between. That Gnome-shell have not taken this feedadback into conadsidaderadaadtion is just arroadgant and a big “fuck you” to the loyal Gnome usera0base.Its sad that Ubuntu felt they had to make their own shell, howadever, its even more sad that Gnome-shell have not lisadtened to the criadtique of the curadrent state of affairs.If I peradsonadally have to choose between Gnome-shell (as it is now) and Unity, I will go with Unity. I am sorry, but the curadrent way of switchading between tasks are just not acceptadable in Gnome-shell.

Unfortunately, Gnome-shell is not very good from a usability perspective in its current state. The design (at least the big picture) has not exactly changed that much since it was introduced, and while A LOT of those who have tested it have given negative feedback, Gnome has chosen to stick with its design. Just check out the comments on every blog entry, every youtube video, every news item on the internet about the shell. Although I see positive feedback as well, they are far between. That Gnome-shell have not taken this feedback into consideration is just arrogant and a big “fuck you” to the loyal Gnome user base.
Its sad that Ubuntu felt they had to make their own shell, however, its even more sad that Gnome-shell have not listened to the critique of the current state of affairs.
If I personally have to choose between Gnome-shell (as it is now) and Unity, I will go with Unity. I am sorry, but the current way of switching between tasks are just not acceptable in Gnome-shell.
