I find it hard to come up with a course of action that would improve NVIDIA's image among kernel maintainers without giving them what they need. He wants people to want to work with NVIDIA stuff which would obviously require both giving the maintainers what they need and doing stuff they they don't necessarily need but wouldn't mind at all.

Asking this question he doesn't just get suggestions of how to make it easier to run NVIDIA hardware on desktop Linux, but also on what about working with NVIDIA irritates the maintainers; fixing those means more maintainers *using* NVIDIA (and so testing it) if not specifically fixing it.

Sun Unleashes Most Powerful Flare Since 2006 100

Posted by Unknown Lamer
from the solar-flares-carrier-lost dept.
astroengine writes "Early Tuesday morning, the Sun unleashed a powerful X-class flare. The X7 flare is the most energetic explosion to come from the Sun since December 2006. Although the flare was directed away from the Earth, a minor proton storm was detected and some radio communications have been disrupted due to higher-than-normal rates of ionization in the Earth's ionosphere. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the whole event, imaging the flaring site and multi-million degree post-flare plasma."

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
