​Linus Torvalds takes a break from Linux
Torvalds looked at himself in the mirror, and he wasn't happy. He realized "it wasn't actually funny or a good sign that I was hoping to just skip the yearly kernel summit entirely, and on the other hand realizing that I really had been ignoring some fairly deep-seated feelings in the community."


Torvalds will be back. "This is not some kind of 'I'm burnt out, I need to just go away' break. I'm not feeling like I don't want to continue maintaining Linux. Quite the reverse. I very much *do* want to continue to do this project that I've been working on for almost three decades."

On FB, Pocketbook published a video announcing a black Inkpad 3. That is, no changes, except that the colour is black.

I'd rather get something resembling the shape of Inkpad 2: Wide bezels, comfortable to hold in any direction, wide page keys. When a gadget has no place where to rest the thumb without touching the screen, it has a flawed design.

Try to put library libgstlibav.dll at lib\gstreamer-1.0\ from this archive
Read this thread from here.
It worked for me, and YouTube plays videos using HTML5 fine for me with Windows XP SP3.
I added some info at end of that topic. It maybe useful

download this and unpack newer versions on top of it:
There is one additional library libgstlibav.dll at lib\gstreamer-1.0\ at this archive.
Without this dll all other builds won't play video!
I copied it to all different builds and now they play youtube video fine!
I cheked dll dependences and found that at builds for WinXP you uses dsengine.dll v5.6.2,
but it requires Direct3DCreate9Ex function at d3d9.dll -this dll doesn't implement this function at WinXP
...and MFGetService function at MF.dll -there is no such dll at WinXP
At WinXP it is impossible, but I don't know, maybe there is no troubles with working...
I found dsengine.dll v5.6.1 for WinXP. It was build with depends of libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll,
I cheked all dependences for it and then I replace these dlls at your last WinXP build for tests.
Is it possible to do MSE working at ?
EnableMediaSource =YES/NO -It shows MSE not working before this changes and after...
.   -there are placed gstreamer-1.0 official binaries for Windows.
I have checked it should work with Otter browser at WinXP too, but it have some other dll-dependencies. I try to complain it...

I even could easily read the opera mail storage, index it and search it without many configurations (except for the folder, of course)!
It would be very nice if Otter could import Opera's mail, yes. When Otter started, it was able to import Opera's bookmarks. This was done right, and it would be nice to continue this way as far as possible.

In general, somebody should volunteer to program the module up. I don't know any programming myself and unfortunately it is not in my plans to learn programming, so I cannot volunteer for it.

In your case it sounds like a simple false positive.
This much I could figure out myself on that very instant. The fun fact is that we get notified about the positive, false or otherwise, but not about the policy that everything you attempt to upload gets automatically scanned. Admittedly I have not read the user agreement, but I am quite sure there is nothing about that pre-censorship is the norm there.

And I don't believe Google News is a useful or profitable thing anyway, so I'd be fine if Google scrapped the thing entirely.

Not sure what specifically could have been copyrighted in my video
In your case it sounds like a simple false positive. It probably thought the fan was from some noirish film or something.

Compare movie studios taking down their own freaking trailers for containing "copyrighted material." There's no human involvement in these matters, or if there is they have like 5-10 seconds to judge plus a directive to err on the side of caution, making the end result the same.
