Apache 2.0 released

  View Printable Version 
NewsThe first "General Availability" release of Apache 2.0 is out. Its version is 2.0.35. The Apache Web server is supported on all sorts of Unix-types (FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Linux etc.), BeOS, Windows, Netware and OS/2. Apache 1.3.x has formally been regarded as beta on Windows-platforms, but this has changed with the GA release of 2.0, and it could easily pave the way for even higher penetration of Apache web servers on the net.

The Robin Hoods of the net

  View Printable Version 
NewsIt happens all the time. Corporations and authorities are edging and nudging the small people off of the internet, and someone appears from the fog and fights back. Who are these people, where do they come from and why do they do it?

And maybe most important of all; what would have happened if they hadn't stood up and faced the music from the shit-spewing corporate fan?

The story is over at Extremetech.com. And while you're over there, check out the opinion-article "Having a Brazil moment".

NewsA new teaser/trailer for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, is available online.

Apparently the link is overloaded (/.'ed) and produces a "Referral Denied" when contacted. You might want to try again in a couple of days, or attempt to paste the address into an empty browser window address bar.

2Gb USB storage on a keychain

  View Printable Version 
NewsJMTek is supposedly going to show a keychain USB drive with a capacity of 2 Gb. The drive is to be shown at CeBit in Hannover March 13 to 20 this year.

As with the 1 Gb version, the keychain drive needs no driver when used in Windows 2000, XP or Linux 2.4.x. Also on display will be a version for extreme physical conditions and one that can be used as a bootdisk.

The JMTek homepage does not mention this new drive at all. They probably want to avoid the Osborne Effect (in which a vendor advertises stuff long before it is available, making sales of current products for all practical purposes stop).

If you visit CeBit and spend little enough time in Münchnerhalle (and thus are able to walk in a straight line), pop over to Hall 2, stand A48 or C24 to stare at something you want.

Metadata - what is it, and what good does it?

  View Printable Version 
NewsThis story is a bit old, I know, but I think it will interest some of you anyway. Metadata is the next big thing coming for modern OSes (some have it allready, at least to a degree), and you should know about the pitfalls and goodies that accompany it to be able to nag about it! :)

Also, check out the tale of a BeOS refugee and Metadata and Encapsulation for some more bus litterature... :)
