StarOffice 6.0 beta is here

  View Printable Version 

StarOffice 6.0 beta is available for download from Sun's website. What???The biggest change from version 5.2 is that all the different applications have been split up in smaller programs (instead of one large wad of code) and the support for XML file formats. This fact is clearly referenced on Sun's website.

Personally, I just hope I'll be able to print from it and that it doesn't crash every time I switch to Opera or Poco. Even if it's beta :-)

SecurityOver at Daily Daemon News, Sean Lewis writes:

ToorCon 2001"This past weekend I gave a very well-received talk to people at ToorCon 2001 in San Diego, CA about BSD security fundamentals - this HTML-ized version of my presentation is a great security primer for a new BSD user and also has a few tips and tricks for an experienced user as well - many people found the listing of suggested list of ports tree applications useful in sifting out good security applications, others liked the description of features such as kernel securelevels.

The UUXII

GNU/LinuxAnnouncing The Unofficial Unsupported Ximianized ISO Images (or UUXII for people who like acronyms)
* What are the UUXIIs?
The UUXIIs are Unofficial Unsupported Ximianized ISO Images of GNU/Linux distributions. That means we took the standard ISO images, took out the original GNOME packages, and put the Ximian GNOME packages on there instead, so you can install the distribution complete with Ximian GNOME from the same CDs, in one operation, from the standard distribution installer. Newsforge has the full story. The correct link to the image site is uuxii.cofradia.org

HFNetChk - windows security tool

  View Printable Version 
WindowsStaying up to date on Windows security patches can be a royal pain. Just as important is knowing what patches you already have on all of your systems. I have already mentioned this tool in the (long) security article Patching and securing IIS4. The tool refers to an XML database (online?) in order to tell you the patches that are available for the following:

  • Windows NT 4.0
  • Windows 2000
  • All system services, including Internet Information Server 4.0 and 5.0
  • SQL Server 7.0 and 2000 (including Microsoft Data Engine)
  • Internet Explorer 5.01 and later
HFNetChk was created by Shavlik Technologies together with Microsoft. Details and download locations are available in Q303215.

Win2k: one laptop, several networks

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAre you using a laptop (with Win2k) on several networks? And only some of them have a dhcp server? Then you should know about 'netsh'. With a command like netsh interface ip set address "LAN" static ip- address netmask gateway metric, you can set the tcp/ip parameters on the interface named "LAN". Difficult, you say? Just put it in a .bat file then. Check out Knowledge Base-article Q242468 for everything about netsh.

MaximumLinux.org: Mac-On-Linux

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxMOL (Mac-on-Linux) is an open source project that lets Linux PPC users run the Mac OS on Linux. The project has been around in some form since 1997 and although I had heard of it before I really never even gave it much thought until I installed Yellow Dog Linux on my PowerBook Ti. Read the full article.

Furbeowulf Cluster Computing

  View Printable Version 
NewsFrom Trygve.com: "When Linux was first ported to the Furby platform, it suffered from significant stability and performance problems, which gave the Furby an unfortunate reputation as being unsuitable for enterprise-level computing. The conversion of the IRS and NASA computing facilities to Furby-based platforms towards the end of 1999 was seen by many as premature and may have contributed to the problems experienced by those departments during 2000 which did nothing to improve the Furby's image in corporate America. To be fair, however, it should be noted that Furbys placed in IRS telephone support positions received no more complaints than their human counterparts and studies showed that they provided a comparable level of accuracy in their answers to taxpayer questions".

Worth a visit, just for the pictures alone. Go there now!
