I am pleased to announce the release of apt-offline - 1.6

This release is mostly a bug fix release, which every user should upgrade to. It also fixes a major bug in the way we limited the validation of GPG integrity, for the APT repository lists (Thank you Paul Wise).

Also, In the last release,  we migrated from custom magic library to the python shipped ctype python-magic library. That allowed some bugs to creep, and hopefully now, all those bugs should be fixed. A big thanks to Roland Summers for his bug reports and continuous feedback.

Dear Lazy Web,

I have  an HP Envy J104TS laptop. Recently I saw an interesting message in the kernel log.

[99360.969652] [Firmware Bug]: battery: (dis)charge rate invalid.

Does anybody know what firmware is it referring to here ? I don't think the current set of firmwares shiped by linux are involved in battery related information. Is it the BIOS ?

Linux has improved many many things over the last couple of years. Of the many improvements, the one that I've started leveraging the most today, are Control Groups.

In the past, when there was a need to build a prototype for a solution, we needed hardware.

We are almost at the end of 2014. While 2014 has been a year with many mixed experiences, I think it does warrant one blog entry ;-)

Recently, I've again started spending more time on Linux products / solutions, than spending time focused on a specfic subsystem. This change has been good. It has allowed me to re-cap all the advancements that have happened in the Linux world, umm... in the last 5 years.
