Subject: Use head and tail to read text files

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

There are many commands to view text files. The most used one is "cat" which is the most suitable to read small text files, "more" and "less" can be good options for large files. But if you are just interested in the beginning or the end of a large file, "head" and "tail" may be very handy for you.

Subject: Letting the baby dance: New copyright rules for the digital age

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

When Stephanie Lenz in Pennsylvania put a video on YouTube of her 18-month-old son bopping to Prince’s song “Let’s Go Crazy” she did not expect a lawsuit. But four months and 28 views later, the musician’s recording company, Universal, howled that the 29-second “performance” infringed its copyright and demanded that YouTube take it down. That was in 2007. Since then computers, smartphones and the internet have made copyright law look even more obsolete. But the response so far has been not to update the laws but to widen their scope and stiffen the penalties. In January websites including Wikipedia briefly shut down in protest against tough anti-piracy laws promoted by the entertainment industry in America and elsewhere. Now the tide is turning. For many politicians, property rights for media moguls are taking second place to attempts to boost growth by making life easier for technology companies. Ordinary users like Ms Lenz are getting a look-in, too.

Subject: This Guy Holds Patents On Popcorn Chicken, Steak-Umms And Dozens Of Other Cuts Of Meat

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

Back in May, we were one of the first to write about some people claiming to have figured out a new cut of steak, and trying to patent that cut. The story got a lot of attention in a lot of places, as many people (reasonably) think that patenting a cut of meat seems particularly crazy. The good folks over at Planet Money just recently decided to explore the question of meat cut patents. They talk to Tony Mata, the "inventor" of that new meat cut, dubbed the Las Vegas steak, but the... er... "meat" of the conversation actually involves talking to his mentor, Gene Gagliardi, the "inventor" of the Steak-Umm, KFC's popcorn chicken and, according to this video, Popeyes' "Rip'n Chick'n", which Gagliardi calls "Fing'r Pick'n Chick'n" and for which he holds US Patent 5,346,711 on a "Method of making an animal muscle strip product."

Subject: This week at LWN: Look and feel lawsuits, the second time around

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

The thicket of lawsuits surrounding the mobile industry has grown to the point that it is hard for any individual action to stand out. If any case has managed to make itself visible in that crowd anyway, it is the battle between Apple and Samsung currently being fought in the US. The first stage of that battle has just been resolved, heavily in Apple's favor. It will be some time before this story truly reaches its end, but some of the more interesting implications for the industry, and for free software, can already be seen.

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

The WordPress developers have released an update to their open source publishing platform that closes important security holes. Version 3.4.2 of WordPress addresses two privilege escalation vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited by a malicious user to bypass certain security restrictions. WordPress is often a target for attackers and ensuring it is secure protects not only the published content but the readers of the content.

Subject: The GPL-Licensed Half-Life Engine Is Still Going

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

Continuing to advance as an open-source project is a game engine that's written from scratch with an aim of being compatible with the original Half-Life "Gold Source" engine. This GPL-licensed engine is already working with many original Valve games and mods. A Phoronix reader wrote in this morning to bring up Xash3D, which is self-described as a "Custom Gold Source Engine build from a scratch." The Xash3D engine isn't brand new but has been around for a while now and is continuing to mature -- it should already work for almost any existing single-player Half-Life mod without having any compatibility issues. The multi-player code to the Xash3D engine is also incomplete at the moment.

Lately we’ve been treated to (or bombarded by) a slew of articles and blog posts proclaiming the failure and/or the death of Linux on the desktop. I could describe what I really think of these articles but my language would be a bit more colorful than would be appropriate. Suffice it to say it’s all bunk as far as I am concerned.

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

I had the opportunity to test drive a friend's Asus (Google) Nexus 7, the latest entry into the tablet space. It has an attractive price point, a clear display and most of the tools that you would expect from a tablet. But despite this, there are some serious limitations that might have you think twice about adopting this device as your go to tablet.
