FRMK | nègres jaunes et autres créatures imaginaires - {livre}
From a review: "It was first published in Chéval in 1994 and then almost entirely redrawn for publication in book form in 1995. In 2012 it was re-released along with a selection of Alagbé’s short stories as Les Nègres jaunes et autres créatures imaginaires (“The Yellow Negroes and other Imaginary Creatures”), preparing the way for École de la misère in 2013."

The CONFUZZLE wordlist
There are lots of text files that list the words you can use in word games like Scrabble. (Some of them are more accurate than others.) But as far as I know, this is the only one that you can print on 17 double-sided sheets of letter-size paper.

The words in the list come from the excellent, public-domain ENABLE2K word list, compiled by Mendel Cooper. His website is sadly defunct, but the wordlist has become a standard for word games and puzzles.

The file: confuzzle.pdf
LaTeX source: confuzzle.tex
The source wordlist: enable.txt
Why would you want a wordlist on paper instead of a computer file? The same reason you’d want to play word games on a board instead of on a computer. Sometimes, you’d rather face the person you’re playing against than have your face in a laptop.

How the list works
The list only contains words, not their definitions. Still, given that there are over 170,000 words in the list, it takes some effort — beyond just using a 6-point font — to fit them on 34 pages.

This economy of printed space is accomplished through a form of human-readable compression. When many consecutive words in alphabetical order start with the same letters, as they tend to do, they are grouped together like this:

ALLOTYP- e es ic ically ies y
The grouping was chosen by an algorithm, not by a lexicographer, so sometimes words are grouped in odd ways:

NONSOL- ar id ids ution utions
I’ve also marked the differences between ENABLE and the more well-known standard, the Official Tournament and Club Word List 2 (OWL2). These markings are not authoritative, because I don’t have an electronic file of OWL2. I compiled the differences mainly from this National Scrabble Association page.

Locating the code that chose the groupings will, unfortunately, take a bit of hard-drive archaeology. I made the list in 2003, updated it for OWL2 in 2006, and updated it manually in 2011 to incorporate the National Scrabble Association’s errata to OWL2.

Automatic Nightly Backups for Your Android Device to Your Computer | Guysoft's Weblog
Things you will need

A computer running Linux you can ssh to with Rsync installed, or Windows running cygwin with rsync and ssh installed

Your device needs to be rooted – I am afraid that's a requirement for Titanium backup and all programs that back up app data

Titanium backup – You can use the free version for backing up, but for a single-click restore you will need to pay (I bought it and recommended you do even if its the only thing you ever buy on the play store)

rsync backup for Android – This will back up all your photos and data that isn’t part of your apps, if you don’t root but this is all you want to back up, this post might help you too!

Decibel Audio Player Homepage
Decibel Audio Player is a GTK+ open-source (GPL) audio player for GNU/Linux. It is very straightforward to use thanks to a clean and user-friendly interface. It is especially targeted at Gnome and follows the Gnome HIG.
Decibel Audio Player is built around a highly modular structure that lets the user disable completely the features he does not need. A disabled feature uses absolutely no memory and no processor time.
Decibel Audio Player is a real audio player and does not include features that are not meant to be part of an audio player. These features, such as tagging files or burning CDs, generally have a better support in dedicated software. If you are looking for an audio player than can make coffee, then you should stay away from Decibel and give a try to other players (e.g., Amarok, Exaile).
The latest version is 1.08, you can get it from the download page.

Review: 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K Display
I am quite interested in these things, but I am waiting to see how they do for gaming. I am no expert on this, but I assume that a retina display would take more graphics power even if the game is not being run at 5K (I don't think there are any 5K games). So even though this is a powerful machine, I wonder how that balances out against a display that requires more power to run. Maybe this review gets into that. I'll read soon.
