Judge Robert Rinder is a criminal barrister. He has a new day time TV show called Judge Rinder on ITV1 HD. This appears to be a British version of the famous Judge Judy. For those people only familiar with Judge Judy, here are some translations. JR: I can smell a fart in a lift = JJ: I'm a truth machine. JR: Porky pies = JJ: Baloney. Curiously the programme finishes by playing the Babylon 5 theme tune.
This brief HOWTO shows how to take a working 32 bit 14.04 installation and convert it into a 64 bit system. You will be able to keep all your programs, settings and data. You start with a 32 bit system that can run 64 bit programs, then convert it to a 64 bit system that can run 32 bit programs.

In this series we will follow various steps to download and install OpenVMS for hobbyist use. Perhaps suprisingly, OpenVMS is still prevalent in commercial environments. I have either used or witnessed it in 75% of my placements.
Barclays Bank Chelmsford had a pop-up business section running in December this year. I stopped to chat to the people from Wakelin's Premium Coffee who were there. Apparently they are local, but do not trade here or have a web site at all. They sold beans or ground beans at £2.50 for a 250g bag. Two bags were purchased (blends, which are not my normal thing): House Blend and Italian Passion.
The Linux Journal online magazine has an excellent article briefly covering using free or cheap software, and relatively cheap or open hardware, to diagnose car fault codes or simply inspect your vehicle's status using its OBD-II port.
