CourtListener.com Now Supports Oral Arguments from the Second Circuit

We are happy to share that as of today, oral argument recordings from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals are finally available on CourtListener.com. This means that you can search these recordings, create email alerts for them, listen to them on our site, and even include them in custom podcasts. Of course, we also provide enhanced versions of these recordings for download, and for developers or researchers they’re also available as bulk data or via our APIs.
Before today, we were unable to provide these features for the Second Circuit because they didn’t post their oral argument recordings on their website, so we’re thrilled that they’ve begun doing so. At this point, only the Tenth and Eleventh Circuits do not post their oral argument recordings, but we are hopeful that they will follow the lead of the other circuits and begin doing so soon.

Elementary OS Loki 0.4 Stable Release

After a little over a year of development, elementary is proud to announce the stable release of elementary OS Loki!Loki is the newest version of elementary OS, a design-oriented and open source Linux-based operating system for desktops and laptops. It succeeds Freya which was released in April of 2015.The previous release of elementary OS was downloaded about 1.2 million times, with 73% of those downloads coming from closed source OSes. elementary founder, Daniel Foré reports,Rather than competing directly with existing open source projects, elementary seeks to grow the market share for open source software in general. And as we’ve seen with previous releases, that’s exactly what we’re doing.We’ve closed about 1,000 issue reports and implemented over 20 blueprints. Altogether, these represent stability and security improvements, better internationalization, new features and options, and much more.We’ve also made progress on our mission to create Open Source jobs. We’ve paid out about $8,700

Rkt reaches 1.14.0

Earlier this year we released rkt, the container engine by CoreOS, in its first stable version, and since then the project development has continued apace. Release after release, rkt keeps proceeding towards its goal of providing a stable and minimal container runtime. Here, we will take a small tour of the project’s status and some of its more notable changes since 1.0.
The rkt journey so far
Many users have shown how they care about rkt by providing invaluable feedback and use cases, as well as proposing new features. Based on this feedback, we have several noteworthy changes to highlight. Those are just a small selection among all the changes that we track in the changelogs accompanying every release.
On the standardization front, the Open Container Initiative (OCI) is progressing towards its 1.0 release, and work is well underway in rkt to fully support this important milestone. We’ve started preliminary work on handling

Getting started with Raspberry Pi – Building a Digital Photo Frame

What you can do with a tiny $35 computer and how I built a digital photo frame

In early 2012 an intriguing single-board computer with a weird name hit the market. For the low price of $35, you could get a fully functioning computer that could run a real operating system.

It was called the Raspberry Pi and it was the brainchild of a UK charity called the Raspberry Pi Foundation. They saw the need for an affordable computer after seeing a consistent drop in students applying to study computer science.

Well it turns out this tiny and cheap fully-functional computer had a much larger audience than anticipated. Multiple models have been created since, including the $5 Pi Zero, and over 9 million Raspberry Pis have been sold.

This is a long post so I more than likely made some errors along the way. Feel free to let me
