Why not RT?

I’m going to say something to you that you might not like.So be prepared!People don’t help spread the word.An old friend the other day said he was sad that my outliners are gone.I thought this really sucks, because I’m working on the outliner every day now. It’s the current thing I’m doing. I’m writing about it on my blog. Yet no one knows.I hear all the time people wish I would do another outliner.And those people are weird too. Because it’s pretty clear they don’t actually mean what they say, because when I send them a link to LO2, they don’t use it. So what was that all about? I have always tried to help friends promote their work. But I think most people don’t do that.Why? Try an experiment. Next time you’re going to Like something on Twitter, instead RT it. What really do you have to lose? Or on Facebook, share

Misuse of Creative Commons-licensed photo leads to public apology

The photo in question, seen here, was used on a promotional poster. Photo by Niccolò Caranti, CC BY-SA 4.0.
At the end of last April, Niccolò Caranti (Jaqen) noticed one of his photos being used on a poster promoting an upcoming festival where Italian journalist Federico Rampini would be speaking.
In many cases, this is not an issue. Caranti, a Wikimedia Commons administrator, uploads his photos to the site under free Creative Commons licenses. This particular photo was licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0, which essentially says that anyone anywhere is free to use the image for any purpose provided they attribute the photographer and release it under the same or a similar license.
Here, however, the organizers of the festival did not credit Caranti or note what license the photo was being shared under in any of the hundreds of posters published and distributed.
Put another way, as he told us, “I’m happy to

Your OpenStreetMap server in 120GB

1. Install Ubuntu 14.04 server.
Remember to enable the firewall:
costales@maps:~$ sudo ufw allow http

costales@maps:~$ sudo ufw allow ssh

costales@maps:~$ sudo ufw enable

2. Check that you have all locales right:costales@maps:~$ localeIf some of them are empty, add them to /etc/environment, in my case LC_ALL & LANGUAGE:costales@maps:~$ cat /etc/environment

3. Install the server from a PPA:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kakrueger/openstreetmap

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-tile osmctools

4. Import a map: We’ll drop so many data for allow the smallest database, then space in hard disk 😉

4.1 Download from here in pbf. For example, europe-latest.osm.pbf:

costales@maps:~$ wget http://download.geofabrik.de/europe-latest.osm.pbf

4.2 Do it small, we’ll keep only the roads:

costales@maps:~$ osmconvert europe-latest.osm.pbf -o=europe.o5m

costales@maps:~$ osmfilter europe.o5m –drop-author –drop-version –keep=”highway=cycleway” –keep=”highway=path” –keep=”highway=footway” –keep=”highway=track” –keep=”highway=service” –keep=”highway=pedestrian” –keep=”highway=unclassified” –keep=”highway=residential” –keep=”highway=tertiary” –keep=”highway=secondary” –keep=”highway=primary” –keep=”highway=trunk” –keep=”highway=motorway” –keep=”highway=” –drop-tags=”alt_name” –drop-tags=”source” –drop-tags=”maxspeed” –drop-tags=”created_by” –drop-tags=”wheelchair*” -o=europe_tmp.o5m

costales@maps:~$ osmconvert europe_tmp.o5m -o=europe_end.pbf

costales@maps:~$ rm europe-latest.osm.pbf europe.o5m europe_tmp.o5m

4.3 Import it into the database:

costales@maps:~$ osm2pgsql –drop –slim -C 1700 –number-processes 2 europe_end.pbf

1700 is the GB of RAM and 2 the CPUs.

5. Set it as complete

Releasing UniDoc, a PDF toolkit for golang

July 12, 2016 at 14:15

Today we are releasing UniDoc version 1.0, a comprehensive open source PDF toolkit written in Go.


At FoxyUtils we have been using various libraries for PDF manipulation
over the years and never been completely happy with what we have used. In the last couple of years we
have been migrating our code-base to Golang and have completed porting of our
existing python code. In order to use the same libraries as used in python we had to to shell out and call
external APIs. As a result we have been developing a PDF toolkit in Go and
we are pleased to announce that our baby has been born and is ready for the prime time. FoxyUtils.com has been
updated to entirely use the new library for the following services:

UniDoc is starting out as a PDF toolkit for Go, but will be expanding to a general document
processing libraries with support to read
