This week has passed away Knightscope K5, a police robot that patrolled a mall in the city of Washington. He ended his miserable life by throwing himself into a fountain and now investigates what might have happened. From here I want to honor the memory of this robot who had no opportunities in his life to prove his bravery. A drunkard beat him up earlier and maybe could not overcome that humiliation.
If you have a board in a forgotten drawer please take it out sometime. Give it a ride, give it a beer, greet it once in a while...
Well, let's review what happened this week in the Pi World and I'm going to put a little color to everything around us...

The default installation is configured to download the packages from a remote server that is sometimes saturated. The best thing is to call the closest mirror and that can be done with the netselect-apt package, which can be installed as usual:
sudo apt install -y netselect-apt
Now we invoke it with sudo netselect-apt version, where version is the version we currently have (jessie, stretch).
Notice that this solution does not support Raspbian, as it has its own mirrors and this application will not update your /etc/apt/sources.list. Although you can introduce it by hand. For Spain we could write:
# Comment the current mirror
sudo sed -i '/deb http:\/\/m/s/^/#/' /etc/apt/sources.list
# Add the Spain mirror to /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://ftp.cica.es/mirrors/Linux/raspbian/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
I leave you the link with all the mirrors below.

Fate has wanted me to cross in my way geographic information systems again, to which I have dedicated much of my professional career. Today is the day that I have published an article on this subject in the issue this month on ODROID Magazine with which you can enjoy this and other topics of interest. In the meantime you download it comfortably, we'll be reviewing the best of the weekly panorama in this crazy Pi World. Here we go!

When Apache can't find a url or the user does not have permissions to see a certain page (403), add a signature at the bottom of the page with information about the installed version as you can see in the image that heads the article.
To hide it, edit the file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, execute the following and restart the daemon:
sudo sh -c 'echo "ServerSignature Off\nServerTokens Prod" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf'
sudo systemctl restart apache2

I leave you a quick tip about Raspbian I read in the official forum:
It is possible to activate the SSH daemon creating an empty file in /boot called ssh after burning the operating system. Now when you start your distro for the first time, SSH will be activated and the file will be deleted automatically.
