Filed under
Linux

Filed under
OSS

Looks like a theme for 2006 is beginning to emerge: Intellectual property issues.

The method used by SHELL is straightforward but often creates confusion for new Linux or UNIX users. Therefore, I thought it is time to document it online.

Open source review crucial

Filed under
OSS

The GPL -- perhaps the best known open source software licence -- is being rewritten. The concept of "open source" software was first put forward about 20 years ago by computer programmer Richard Stallman. It began as a philosophical notion that software should be distributed in a form that allows it to be modified by its users.

HowTos

I decided to have a closer look at this mysterious beast and see if I couldn't get it to do something a little more useful. So I hooked it up to everyone's other favourite database, MySql, and knocked out a little database browser. Here's how I did it.
