In a previous post, I talked about new features and performance of java 1.7. Java 7 has now been released a while ago and Java 8 is coming. Java 1.8 is planned to be released on the 9th of September 2013. I'm going to present the main new features of the Java 8 (JDK8). I will show some code examples and run some simple benchmarks to compare it with its predecessor Java 1.6 and Java 1.7.

I'm using gnome-shell since it was released along gnome 3.0 in April 2011. I know lot of people don't like it but I do. However I do need to add a few things to make it more enjoyable and to be fair more usable for work. So here is a post to give you the tips and extensions you need.

A company I work for is using webex for audio/video conferencing. Webex say they support linux and more specifically Ubuntu 10x, Red Hat (5/6), Open SuSE (11.3/11.4) and Fedora (13/14) with Firefox 3.x, 4.x, 5.x. As I am using Arch Linux and I don't want to use a virtual machine, I have been trying to get it to work on it. As we all know, any linux distributions is pretty much the same thing so if it works on 1 distribution it should be possible to get it to work on any other. So let's see how to get webex to work on Linux in general and Arch Linux in particular.

This post is just a few commands in order to control pulseaudio from command line. The main purpose for me is to set the default input device as I have two and the one I use is not the one being set as default automatically.

When you use pulseaudio and you increase the volume, it will increase the front volume but also the PCM value leading to crackling sound when reaching value above 80%. Here is how to change this behaviour.
