Subject: Open source's secret ally: Moore's Law

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

Linux went from being a cool personal hack in a bedroom to software that would eventually change world just over 21 years ago when Linus sent out his famous "Hello everybody out there using minix" message that invited people to join in. As I noted last month, that open, collaborative approach was really quite new and proved key to the uptake and development of Linux.

Mozilla brings several under-the-hood stability enhancements to the new browser, Java script performance improvements and support for Web Apps; however by far the most notable feature to be bundled in Firefox is the new developer Toolbar and Command Line. Let’s investigate the new release in detail.

Subject: Zimbabwe pushes for open education despite oppression

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

Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia) is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa. For many years, it was regarded as the breadbasket of Africa. But since Zimbabwe gained independence from Britain in 1980, Robert Mugabe has been the leader, and the fate of the country has largely been tied to him and his policies.

Subject: The Mysterious Workings of Wikis: Who Owns What?

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

Most everyone on the Internet reads Wikipedia, whether they rely on it or not, but few understand how wikis work or who owns the content. Understanding content ownership is important, because so many people freely contribute to wikis. If the wiki's owner or contributors decide to revise or move the content, that could lead to a lawsuit.

Subject: Stand Up Workstation

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

Living a sedentary life in front of a sit down type computer workstation is an occupational hazard. It definitely statistically shortens your life. As a software engineer weird back aches belly bulge and other minor health problems despite much exercise have been a chronic problem for me. After thirty years of sitting at a workstation, I have finally changed to a stand up workstation to safeguard my health. It came about almost by accident when I purchased a used steel file cabinet.

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

If you love RPG (role-playing game) and you think that there is no future for these games on Linux this post is for you. In this post I’ll show you 4 NEW RPG games, they are all developed from the scratch to run on our beloved Penguin: Questverse, Hale, Dawn, Flare and Arakion. Just a small warning they are projects in the making, so none of them is still ready to be fully played, but if you like this genre just read on, you’ll not be disappointed.

Subject: How To Synchronize Dropbox and ownCloud on Linux

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

ownCloud supports integration with external filesystems such as FTP, Webdav, Openstack Swift, and SMB servers, and external cloud services like Amazon S3, Google Drive, and Dropbox. Dropbox integration is one of the most-requested features, and at last this is available in ownCloud 4.5, which is scheduled for its official release this week. You can set up your own personal, private cloud that syncs with Dropbox and then share an entire Dropbox, or selected files, from your ownCloud server.

Subject: Console Based Applications

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

Console based applications are light on system resources (very useful on low specified machines), can be faster and more efficient than their graphical counterparts, they do not stop working when X Windows is restarted, and are great for scripting purposes. When designed well, console applications offer a surprisingly powerful way of using a computer effectively. The applications are leaner, faster, easier to maintain, and remove the need to have installed a whole gamut of libraries.

That was a lengthy introduction, but it was necessary. Here is a condensed version: Get a UEFI system with an SSD and an HDD. Install Windows 7 on the SSD. Set the boot device to the HDD. Install Ubuntu 12.04 on the HDD. Reboot. Select Windows 7 or Ubuntu from GRUB’s menu. Have a fun computing.

Subject: Linux-Native Task Management? Check.

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

Task management programs are commonplace in our busy lives, but it seems that every system lacks something. Google Tasks is nice, but it lacks the features of a more robust task management system. Remember the Milk is nice, but it charges for some of its features. Many standalone task management programs are great, but they don't sync between devices.
