The AMD Athlon XP 1900+

  View Printable Version 
HardwareAMD let out it's newest CPU offering in October, the Athlon XP 1900+. It ticks at 1600Mhz, but as we all know by now, this does not necessarily mean anything in particular when it comes to processing speed. In fact, in a test done by Tom's Hardware, it let the Intel Pentium 4 @ 2000MHz behind in the dust. All the details on both the Pentium 4 / AMD Athlon benchmarks and a torough discussion on this new AMD CPU is here.

Using Windows NT/2000 authentication on Apache

  View Printable Version 
WindowsBy Tor Willy Austerslått

As you might know, the Apache web-server is no stranger to Win32 platforms. The current offering is version 1.3.20, packed in a nice MSI-file for the Windows Installer service. So, at least installing the thing is a no-brainer. Configuring it to get something done might not necessarily be.

TechNotes: Fixing SuSE 7.3

  View Printable Version 
GNU/Linux"Those who read this week's .comment column on LinuxPlanet.com learned of the difficulty that I and some others have encountered in installing, configuring, and using SuSE Linux 7.3. These problems are not universal, but for a substantial number of users they render a nonfunctioning or barely functioning system.

As it turns out, at least two significant problems can be relatively easily solved, even by users who have little Linux experience. A third problem is not a critical issue but still one for which a solution remains elusive."

The article is at LinuxPlanet.com

NetworkingThis article is an excerpt from the highly informative Navas Cable Modem/DSL Tuning Guide.

The text here describes how a cable modem downlink can be affected when the uplink saturates. This - in effect - is why most cable ISP's deny any use of public servers on their subscriber lines.

US: DeCSS is free speech

  View Printable Version 
NewsA court in sunny California has ruled that publishing source code for the DVD de-scrambler "DeCSS", falls into the category of free speech. This was what Jon Johansen did last year, subsequently finding trenchcoat clad men with moustaches and well-kept handguns outside his door.

Read about it on The Register. There is also a piece on this at ZDNet News.

MicroDrive MP3 Player You Talk To

  View Printable Version 
HardwareThe e.Digital MXP 100 comes with a choice of 340MB, 512MB, and 1GB MicroDrives and is about 25% larger than a Rio 500 flash portable. That makes it small enough to conveniently fit in a pocket, something you can't do with a jukebox player like Creative's Nomad Jukebox. The Nomad is three times larger than the MXP 100 and quite a bit heavier.

Red Hat ext3 journaling file system

  View Printable Version 
WhitepapersIn Red Hat Linux 7.2, Red Hat provides its first officially supported journaling file system: ext3. The ext3 file system is a set of incremental enhancements to the robust ext2 file system that provide several advantages. This paper summarizes some of those advantages (first in general terms and then more specifically), explains what Red Hat has done to test the ext3 file system, and (for advanced users only) touches on tuning.

Other journaling file systems are being written for Linux; this paper does not address them in any way and is not intended to compare ext3 to any other journaling file system.

Wrong book - no flight

  View Printable Version 
NewsIf a sufficiently high number of airport security people are having a bad hair day, and your reading material looks remotely similar to anything Mohammed Atta might have read during the last 30 years, this can happen.

There's just no end to what "trained professionals" can get away with. At least in the land of the free (and hysterical).
