Recommended for You

There is a part on the Youtube home page which recommends some videos based on what you already watched.

I’m still trying to understand what kind of link there can be.

Google日本語入力がオープンソースになりました

前からGoogle日本語入力ソフトが気になっていましたが、残念ながらLinux版がなくて試せませんでした。今日はChromium OSのためにオープンソースになったそうです。それでLinux版も出てきました。
さっきインストールして、今使ってみています。Primeみたいに予測入力システムになっています。元のGoogle日本語入力の辞書はインターネット上から生成されたそうですがオープンソース版は別の辞書を使用しているそうです。もっと入力しないとPrimeとAnthyとどう違うか、どれが一番使い安いか分かりませんな〜。
とにかくその入力ソフトがibus上で働くので、ibusも必要です。

Important milestone for Iceweasel in Debian

I just uploaded a pre-release of Iceweasel 3.6.4 to experimental. This is an important milestone for several reasons:

  • Last time I was able to push a pre-release was almost 2 years ago. This means the keeping up with upstream is mostly done. This also means I should be ready to create a 3.7alpha5 package when upstream releases it.
  • It includes a new feature: Out of Process Plugins. This means plugins instances are sandboxed and if they crash, they won’t take the browser down with them (finally). In this release, only the Adobe flash plugin is sandboxed, but it should be enough for the vast majority of plugin induced crashes.
  • Upstream is particularly interested in feedback from Debian (experimental) users for this pre-release, as they usually don’t get much feedback from their own linux pre-release builds except from the test suite.
