Submission + - Small asteroid burns up over Atlantic Ocean

The Bad Astronomer writes: On Feb. 6, an asteroid roughly 6 meters across burned up over the Atlantic Ocean, exploding like a 10 kiloton bomb. Although this was the largest event since the Chelyabinsk superbolide in 2013 (which injured 1000+ people), there were no witnesses. It happened 1000 km off the coast of Brazil, and was reported by the military, though it's unclear how they detected it.

Comment fix it for who? (Score 5, Insightful) 97

Make a twitter for newbies and a news feed if you want, I like my hand curated news sources as they are.

It isn't broken for me.

A bigger fix would be to make twitter a proper platform like it was, not a semi closed app

tqft@tqft-hurd:~$ uname -a
GNU tqft-hurd 0.6 GNU-Mach 1.4+git20150409-486/Hurd-0.6 i686-AT386 GNU

qemu-img Not kvm-img as on the documentation on debian which apparently doesn't recognise that as a valid command or program (I looked via synaptic as well).

Running xfce, apparently gnome and kde don't work yet.

Yet to do a proper reboot.

Download dvd iso, follow commands (except as above), click as per usual debian install. Done

Sorry for the clickbait. Just a write up from a book coming out soon.

I think I just like how the story won't die.

Before wiping your laptop after backing up your /home remember /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and possibly modprobe.conf

The filesystem was getting flaky and dropped out while I was using it. Paved the linux partitions and now resinstalling.
Next up wifi with broadcom.
re above: Missed the soundcard setup. Done now.
