How to disclose data for double-blind review and make it archived open data upon acceptance

H

Openness in science is key to fostering progress via transparency, reproducibility and replicability. While open access and open data are two fundamental pillars in open science, it is open data that builds the core for excellence in evidence-based research. This is why I have striven for years to bring open science practices, including open access and open data, to software engineering research...

NetworkManager on Slackware 13.37

N

I found a very easy solution for having NetworkManager installed on Slackware Linux, even without using dirty tricks as I did with Slackware 13.0. How? Take a look at rworkman’s packages for XFCE 4.8.0 😉 In the extra/packages you will find packages for NetworkManager, both the system and the applet. I would also install the packages in the packages/*arch*/deps/ folder, since there are some...

As assignment for Data Structures and Algorithms course, we had to work with a modified version of the quicksort algorithm. It came obvious that for modifying a qsort you need to implement it It is difficult to find a clear quicksort algorithm implemented, so I wrote it.

Network Manager on Slackware 13.0, the dirty and easy way

N

I love to be back to Slackware, my very first distribution. However, there are a couple of things that I’m missing from the other more comfortable distributions. From among them, I totally miss Network Manager. I saw many people asking in forums on how to install Network Manager in Slackware 13.0. There is Wicd, already present in Slackware “repositories”.
