Cut Yourself a Tasty Slice of Gnome-Pie App Launcher

Filed under
Software

Gnome-Pie could be one of the best user interfaces for accessing menus on any Linux desktop.

It is a radial visual application that keeps your hands on the keyboard or the mouse to quickly launch any application. Launching frequently used programs could not be easier or more fun.

Gnome-Pie brings functional eye candy to the menu interface of any Linux desktop environment. Much like the launcher add-on Synapse I reviewed recently, you can use it to either supplement or ignore the built-in Linux menu system.

Using OpenBSD as a FreeBSD Router

  • Using OpenBSD as a FreeBSD Router
    In 2004, whilst at Netsight, I started looking at using OpenBSD for routing. We were using big Cisco 5505 switches with Route Switch Modules in to provide routing. The problem was, they soon became quite slow. They were great if you wanted to do very simple routing, and they could do Layer 3 switching in silicon on the linecards. But as soon as you started to do access lists then they had to route the packets on the main CPU. Not only that, but Cisco’s ACL syntax quickly became very cumbersome as you had no way of doing any kind of macros or variables in the language.
