I'm a self taught software developer, system administrator and all-round code-guy.

I've been doing software development, QA, developer support and system and even some graphic design work for as long as I can remember (going back 20 years or so, I think), both on commercial projects as well as open source and free software, and I enjoy both.

Coding is fun, that's why it is worth doing - I hope it never becomes a chore :-)

comment Can't copy PPA package to another series: “same version already building”
Bummer. I personally find RPM and yum, with all their deficiencies, to still be much friendlier to packagers then the hugely complex and problematic deb/apt system.

comment How To Install And Test KDE Plasma 5 On Ubuntu 14.04
I'm not using SDDM, I'm using KDM from 4. Today's update started SDDM on my system, for some reason, but I couldn't log in to any session - at which point I immediately returned to KDM. It is pretty though - I can see myself using it by default on Kubuntu 14.10.

revised btrfs: not enough free disk space, but device not fully used
updated question, noting that the actual configuration is not RAID0, contrary to btrfs-tools output.

comment btrfs: not enough free disk space, but device not fully used
@bain, while the scenario in #170044 looks similar, the output from btrfs fi df is completely different, so the answer in #170044 (that relies on that piece of data) is not applicable here. I was familiar with #170044 and still decided to ask this question.

comment UPNP / DLNA (client) player recommendations?
This doesn't work for me - VLC shows my server, but won't let me browse it.

djmount works fine without root access (no need to sudo). Just create a directory somewhere in your home folder and djmount on that (and also no need for -o allow_other).

BTW - I eventually rebuilt the file system on current Ubuntu stable, which uses 3.11 kernel - and now I no longer have this problem.
