Subject: Here we go again. TPP Incentivizes ISPs to Police the Internet.

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

The draft chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement on Intellectual Property insists that signatories provide legal incentives for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to privately enforce copyright protection rules. The TPP wants service providers to undertake the financial and administrative burdens of becoming copyright cops, serving a copyright maximalist agenda while disregarding the consequences for Internet freedom and innovation.

Subject: Time for a clean up with BleachBit!

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

BleachBit is a general purpose cleaning application that covers almost every application or component of your system that stores any kind of data, taking hard disk space and risking the unintended sharing of personal data over the internet. The application is unfortunately still using gtk2, but other than that it is completely simple to understand and use in daily basis.

Subject: Sage, A Great Mathematical Tool For Linux

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

When it comes to solving Maths equation in Linux, we have previously discussed GeoGebra, a software for geometry and 2D graphs. However, if you are looking for a more powerful tools, you should give Sage a try. We’ve all heard of Matlab or Magma, but Sage offers an open source alternative to those two, and is, to my opinion, simpler to use.

The 1st of September is just around the corner. Nowadays, one of the most popular purchases for the pupils and students are computers. Being it Linux Desktop or Laptop, you still have an option to install your own operating system on it, specifically to help your child, or maybe yourself, to prepare the homework. There are several Linux-based OSes, which fall into this category, and the most well-known of them is Edubuntu.

Subject: Best Linux Applications For Learning Foreign Languages

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

If you’re learning a foreign language, there is always the need to go beyond the standard textbooks and listening materials. Resources like CDs,DVDs, and even movies in that particular language help you become a good listener and communicator. Also, these days, there are plenty of software available that help you learn better and faster. On Linux too, there are many such applications that can push you further in your linguistic endeavors without you having to pay a single penny. Here is a list of the best ones.

Subject: Virtualization With Xen On CentOS 6.3 (x86_64) (Paravirtualization & Hardware Virtualization)

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

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen (version 4.1.x) on a CentOS 6.3 (x86_64) system. Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other.

Subject: The Sysadmin's Toolbox: sar

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

As someone who's been working as a system administrator for a number of years, it's easy to take tools for granted that I've used for a long time and assume everyone has heard of them. Of course, new sysadmins get into the field every day, and even seasoned sysadmins don't all use the same tools. With that in mind, I decided to write a few columns where I highlight some common-but-easy-to-overlook tools that make life as a sysadmin (and really, any Linux user) easier. I start the series with a classic troubleshooting tool: sar.

Know what is happening in “real time” on your systems is in my opinion the basis to use and optimize your OS. On ArchLinux or better on GNU/Linux in general the top command can help us, this is a very useful system monitor that is really easy to use, and that can also allows us to understand why our OS suffers and which process use most resources. The command to be run on the terminal is:$ topLet’s see now every single row of this output to explain all the information found within the screen.

Blender is such a highly specialized and powerful rendering app that at least two Linux distros are built around it. This cross-platform 3D graphics application matches features and performance of the leading commercial equivalent software packages. Professional-strength rendering software is not a tool for tinkerers.

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

OK, LibreOffice is free for the download, and you can install it on as many different machines as you choose. But a free price and a free license aren’t much good if the software doesn’t have the features you want. Happily, that’s usually not a concern with LibreOffice or its predecessor, OpenOffice.

Subject: The Foreman's Aha Moment in Apple v. Samsung Was Based on Misunderstanding Prior Art ~pj

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

The foreman in the Apple v. Samsung trial has now done an interview with Bloomberg News, giving him an opportunity to answer some of the criticisms of the verdict. It's a [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9cnQcTC2JY]video on YouTube[/url], titled "Apple Jury Foreman: Here's How We Reached a Verdict", and while he answers the criticisms, he describes how the jury, under his instructions, decided that the Samsung prior art didn't invalidate an Apple patent. In doing so, I think he has revealed the biggest mistake of all made by the jury, one so large I don't believe it can be ignored. At a minimum, Apple shouldn't want to win like this. His aha moment, as he calls it, and assuming what he says on the video is accurate, was based on a misunderstanding of what constitutes prior art. In discussing the first patent on the list, he says they got into a discussion about the prior art that was presented at trial. Here's why they discounted it:
