Considering Legacy UNIX/Linux Issues

LinuxJournal - Thu, 2014, Aug28 - 10:34

Gah, so frustrating! Ten years ago I wrote a rather popular book called Wicked Cool Shell Scripts, and I'm working on a new edition—a Tenth Anniversary release. There are lots of new scripts, entirely new chapters and updates to the older stuff. more>>

Getting Good Vibrations with Linux

LinuxJournal - Tue, 2014, Aug26 - 13:09

Vibrations and wave motions describe many different physical systems. In fact, most systems that dissipate energy do so through waves of one form or another. In this article, I take a look at gvb (Good ViBrations, http://www.pietrobattiston.it/gvb), a Linux application you can use to visualize and model wave motion and vibrations. more>>

IndieBox: for Gamers Who Miss Boxes!

LinuxJournal - Wed, 2014, Aug13 - 11:30

There are lots of cool ideas on the Internet that never really make it out of the "startup" phase. IndieBox has been around only for a few months, but I really, really hope it catches on.

Here's the idea:

  • Every month, you get a Linux/Mac/Windows-compatible Indie game in the mail. more>>

Non-Linux FOSS: a Virtualized Cisco Infrastructure?

LinuxJournal - Mon, 2014, Aug11 - 11:32

We're all familiar with the idea of virtualized computers. Not only are they a great way to better utilize resources in a server room, but they also allow you to create and destroy servers in the blink of an eye. That's perfect for a lab or training environment. Unfortunately, it's always taken a rack of actual hardware to create a training lab for Cisco hardware. more>>

Linux Security Threats on the Rise

LinuxJournal - Fri, 2014, Aug08 - 12:40

Every year, heck...every month, Linux is adopted by more companies and organizations as an important if not primary component of their enterprise platform. And the more serious the hardware platform, the more likely it is to be running Linux. 60% of servers, 70% of Web servers and 95% of all supercomputers are Linux-based! more>>

Android Candy: Oyster—Netflix for Books!

LinuxJournal - Thu, 2014, Aug07 - 13:16

For avid readers who can't find the time to visit their local library or struggle to carry giant tomes of awesomeness around with them, eBooks have become a convenient way to consume books. Whether it's on a Kindle, a Nook or in an app on your phone, eBooks are the ultimate in portability. Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to find the book you want in a format you can read. more>>

Roll Your Own YouTube/Flickr with MediaGoblin

LinuxJournal - Wed, 2014, Aug06 - 09:44

Everyone has wasted an afternoon on YouTube clicking through videos of talking cats, screaming goats and bad-lip-reading renditions of popular movies. Heck, there are plenty of YouTube videos of me doing odd and silly things as well. (Does anyone remember 'Buntu Family Theater?) For important family videos, however, I much prefer to control my own data. more>>

Can We Stop Playing Card Games with Business?

LinuxJournal - Mon, 2014, Aug04 - 10:24

A friend who works in one of the big banks recently told me that any new-fangled approach to identity and payments is going to have a hard time getting traction while credit cards continue to work as well as they do. "Using credit cards is too easy, too normal, too entrenched in Business As Usual", he said. They used to say the same thing about Windows. more>>

Reglue: Opening Up the World to Deserving Kids, One Linux Computer at a Time

LinuxJournal - Tue, 2014, Jul29 - 08:11

They say you never forget your first computer. For some of us, it was a Commodore 64 or an Apple IIe. For others, it was a Pentium 233 running Windows 95. Regardless of the hardware, the fond memories of wonder and excitement are universal. For me, I'll never forget the night my father brought home our first computer, a Tandy 1000. more>>

AttachmentSize Sierra Vista Ubuntu Hour.JPG80.15 KB

The inaugural Sierra Vista Ubuntu Hour was held from 1730-1830 on 24 July 2014 at the Sierra Vista Public Library foyer. There were four Arizona Loco team members in attendance, three of which drove from the Phoenix area to ensure the success of this inaugural event. Two people stopped by and expressed an interest in having Ubuntu installed on their computer. I will accomodate them this next week. A good time was had by all present before, during, and after the Ubuntu Hour.

diff -u: What's New in Kernel Development

LinuxJournal - Wed, 2014, Jul23 - 16:03

Once in a while someone points out a POSIX violation in Linux. Often the answer is to fix the violation, but sometimes Linus Torvalds decides that the POSIX behavior is broken, in which case they keep the Linux behavior, but they might build an additional POSIX compatibility layer, even if that layer is slower and less efficient. more>>
