The passing of FiftyOneFifty

It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.

FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Comment about the RPI GPU in com news for November

Just listened to the com news for November. I don't know what's been worse this month, 5150's snoring or ken Fallon's singing :)

About the GPU on the RPI; it's actually a pretty powerful little device. I think the GPU is every bit as powerful as the actual CPU. It supports hardware graphics acceleration as well as audio rendering and I have had CD quality audio playing at the same time as TTS through my OMX code and it never misses a beat. I can't speak for video though of course, but again I suspect it would manage pretty much anything any game can throw at it.

But then the last game I played was Duke Nukem 3D about fifteen years ago :)

It's also possible to split the RAM in different proprtions between the GPU and the CPU

Ken Starks' Indiegogo campaign

I forgot to send Ken the link that was mentioned on the Community News when we were talking about Ahuka's show hpr1639 last month. This was a recording of Ken Starks' talk at Ohio Linux Fest 2014. David Whitman also posted details of the campaign on the HPR mailing list on 2014-11-08.
