Subject: Firebird SQL Project Newsletter, Issue 3

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In the editorial for the 3d issue of Firebird SQL newsletter we'd like to draw your attention to the upcoming Firebird 3. Firebird Project needs more testers for Firebird 3, and even if you are short in time, you can help Firebird with very simple quick test - download Firebird 3, make backup backup/restore of your current Firebird database and try to work with it.

Subject: Liberate the Debian Administrator’s Handbook

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The Debian Administrator’s Handbook has been written by two Debian developers who are keen to share their knowledge. Accessible to all, this book teaches the essentials to anyone who wants to become an effective and independent Debian GNU/Linux administrator.It covers all the topics that a competent Linux administrator should master, from the installation and the update of the system, up to the creation of packages and the compilation of the kernel, but also monitoring, backup and migration, without forgetting advanced topics like SELinux setup to secure services, automated installations, or virtualization with Xen, KVM or LXC.

Google tried retail once with a Google branded Nexus One phone and failed miserably, but instead of learning from that experience, it's going to try another shot at retail -- this time selling Android tablets. What makes it think it will get different results?

FUD is a lot like commodity open source software. It just keeps moving up the stack. A decade ago, the FUD was all about operating systems and database software. Now? It's migrated up to the cloud stack. FUD may be mobile, but it hasn't gotten any prettier.

Firefox developers are considering making web plugins like Adobe Flash an opt-in feature.

The new version comes with a huge list of bug fixes but also a small yet useful feature which completes the Ubuntu Software Center Unity integration: when you click the install button, the application icon "flies" from the Ubuntu Software Center to the Unity launcher using an animation. Also, the launcher icon wiggles when the installation finishes.
