The Linux Action Show As you discussed during the howto segment, there is a bit flexibility to setting up your partitions. When setting up partitions for Ubuntu, I recommend the following setup. Choose Try Ubuntu, then run Gparted.If you have two drives attached, you will have two drives available from the pull down menu. Select the one you wish to use for your / and swap.Right click select on the unallocated space, choose new.With the new dialog open, choose the Ext4 file system, Extended partition, and place swap in the label. For the partition size, choose double the amount of your RAM. If you have 2 Gbs of RAM (2048 Mbs), then make the swap 4 Gbs.
The Illusion of Choice It seems like in today’s world there are fewer and fewer people making choices for the greater good. What I mean to say is that everything in our world seems to be able to be consolidated. The media of course is no exception to this trend with only 6 major companies dictating about 90% of the media we have access to. In less than 30 years the number of companies providing us with our media has dropped from 50 to just 6. Proven Tips for Animating Believable Lip Sync November 18, 2013 5:12 pm Mark Masters Whether you’re a student or a professional animator, inevitably the time will come when you’ll need to tackle some sort of dialogue shot. Remix Culture I have not posted on Remix Theory for some time. The reason being that I have been editing along with fellow editors xtine Burrough and Owen Gallagher an upcoming volume on Remix Studies. It has been a lot of intensive work, needless to say but well worthwhile as we believe the remix community will value the many contributions that comprise the volume. We hope to have the book published in the latter half of 2014–at the moment the tentative release date is for early 2015. Here is some information and a link to the official webpage: The Routledge Companion to Remix Studies
Michelle Jenneke 'Creeper' Is Everyone On The Internet Right Now While the innocence of 19-year-old Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke's warm-up routine is debatable, there's no two ways about the slow-motion re-cut of it that went viral last week. Yes, her milkshake brought all the boys to the Web. And now that collective leer has its own avatar: the Creeper. Digitom Productions posted a spoof in which a lad (that's Canadian for "bro," right?) 21 Emotions For Which There Are No English Words [Infographic] Few of us use all--or even most--of the 3,000 English-language words available to us for describing our emotions, but even if we did, most of us would still experience feelings for which there are, apparently, no words. In some cases, though, words do exist to describe those nameless emotions--they're just not English words. Which is a shame, because--as today's infographic by design student Pei-Ying Lin demonstrates, they often define a feeling entirely familiar to us. Lin solicited the list of "unspeakable" words from colleagues at London's Royal College of Art, and found that their definitions in English usually came down to something like, "it is a kind of (emotion A), close to (emotion B), and somehow between (emotion C) and (emotion D)." A couple of other good ones that didn't make this map [via So Bad So Good]:
Visual Effects for Low Budget Filmmaking In filmmaking, sometimes the simplest solution will be the cheapest, most realistic and easiest. This doesn’t happen often…but when it does, embrace it and enjoy it. In a world where CGI seems to always be the first choice…models and miniatures offer realism and immediate feedback in-camera to let you know if you got the shot. There is a rich history of miniatures and practical visual effects in Hollywood and it will always be a major component of filmmaking at every level. In ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’, Steven Spielberg used a model ship in the Mojave Desert of California to double for the Gobi Desert of Mongolia.
Remix culture Read-Only Culture vs. Read/Write Culture The Read Only culture (RO) is the culture we consume more or less passively. The information or product is provided to us by a 'professional' source, the content industry, that possesses an authority on that particular product/information. Analog technologies inherently supported RO culture's business model of production and distribution and limited the role of the consumer to just that, 'consuming'. Digital technology, however, does not have the 'natural' constraints of the analog that preceded it. Johnny Carson Upload Subscription preferences Loading...
