To attend a wedding in Burkina Faso in February, I booked plane tickets today.
I won't complain that the return ticket went from 745 to 779 overnight while I was waiting for my salary, I always expect such increases.
What I really do not understand is why adding another flight makes the total price cheaper!
Here are 2 Air France prices:
22 February CDG 16h10 -> OUA 20h45 Flight 730 1 March OUA 23h25 -> CDG 05h50 Flight 735 Total price: EUR 864
22 February LHR 12h50 -> CDG 15h00 Flight 1281 22 February CDG 16h10 -> OUA 20h45 Flight 730 1 March OUA 23h25 -> CDG 05h50 Flight 735 2 MArch CDG 07h30 -> LHR 07h50 Flight 1080 Total price: EUR 779
Does someone have an explanation ? The prices are different on other days but always cheaper if I add flights between Paris and London
Mandriva 2010 RC2 is about to be released, so here are some news about latest changes I did this week.
First, the partitioning wizard was updated.
During the last ten years it looked like this:
Only the custom partitioning was graphical.
Now it looks like this:
There are several known issues. First there is only one resizable Windows partition per disk, while I should change the one which has a slider when you click on another one. Another one is that I can not have the indicator aligned on top so there is no clear way to see where an option starts, so I temporarily added ugly separators
Other known issues are the color based on filesystem type so the new one is same color as existing ext* ones, no possibility to view content of a partition when clicking on it, and no information on partitions without label. I should fix all of this before 2010 final.
Another change, still related to partitionning: ext4 is now default FS!
I wanted to comment on blog post this morning. It is hosted on blogs.gnome.org, which requires me to login or create an account. I tried to create an account but it refused because my email is invalid. Google helped me to find that to request a blog we need a gtk.org, gimp.org or gnome.org email alias so I guess this is the same.
What is the point of having a blog where only a few people can comment on ?
Regarding the blog post itself, I wonder how it was installed. It looks like this is the proprietary version as it as usb support. Virtualbox now works fine without usbfs support so I guess some service is wrongly mounting it. And at the wrong place.
Update: as Pavel wrote in a comment, this would be a choice of the author of this specific blog, not the platform. I still think this choice is very wrong.
