Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann Do what I want

Sesse just gave me the most useful piece of information of this week:

To zoom in/out in Android, you double tap and then drag your finger. All of a sudden, you can use Google Maps in one-handed operation again!

A quick search turned up this gem: Touch mechanics on Android.

Neat.

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

And yes, we all know that that SF decided to wrap crapware around Windows installers ages ago and then made it opt-in after the backlash. Doing so for stale accounts makes sense from their PoV, which makes it all the worse.

And no, I don't know how stale that account actually was, but that's irrelevant in this context either way.

Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann Release Critical Bug report for Week 17

At the current rate, Jessie should release... tomorrow! :)

The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

  • In Total: 1040 (Including 150 bugs affecting key packages)
    • Affecting Jessie: 66 (key packages: 49) That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:
      • Affecting Jessie and unstable: 57 (key packages: 43) Those need someone to find a fix, or to finish the work to upload a fix to unstable:
        • 14 bugs are tagged 'patch'. (key packages: 10) Please help by reviewing the patches, and (if you are a DD) by uploading them.
        • 3 bugs are marked as done, but still affect unstable. (key packages: 0) This can happen due to missing builds on some architectures, for example. Help investigate!
        • 40 bugs are neither tagged patch, nor marked done. (key packages: 33) Help make a first step towards resolution!
      • Affecting Jessie only: 9 (key packages: 6) Those are already fixed in unstable, but the fix still needs to migrate to Jessie. You can help by submitting unblock requests for fixed packages, by investigating why packages do not migrate, or by reviewing submitted unblock requests.
        • 0 bugs are in packages that are unblocked by the release team. (key packages: 0)
        • 9 bugs are in packages that are not unblocked. (key packages: 6)

How do we compare to the Squeeze and Wheezy release cycles?

Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann Visiting Hongkong and Shenzhen

TSDgeos had a good idea:

Lazyweb travel recommodations.

So, dear lazyweb: What are things to do or to avoid in Hongkong and Shenzhen if you have one and a half week of holiday before and after work duties? Any hidden gems to look at? What electronic markets are good? Should I take a boat trip around the waters of Hongkong?

If you have any decent yet affordable sleeping options for 2-3 nights in Hongkong, that would also be interesting as my "proper" hotel stay does not start immediately. Not much in ways of comfort is needed as long as I have a safe place to lock my belongings.

In somewhat related news, this Friday's bug report stats may be early or late as I will be on a plane towards China on Friday.
