Michael aka. Darkstar let us know that he recently set up a small Wiki which focuses on reverse-engineering of (old) games. So far, they don't have a lot of information, but lets hope that it will change soon.
Why do you keep using the operating system that you're using right now? I'm sure that you have a number of answers to that question, and they're going to be different for each user. Some people may like the visual appeal, the hardware support, the simplicity, or anything else for that matter. No answer is wrong, because the connection that you make with the OS is unique, and sometimes unexplainable.
This howto will illustrate a way to install and configure Subversion and websvn on a Debian server. With Subversion you have a powerful version control system for your software development, and websvn is an easy-to-use webinterface to your SVN repositories written in PHP.
After six weeks and registering almost twelve thousand nominations, the Open Source CMS Award finalists have been revealed.
When I was investigating the Abilene/Internet2 network sometime back, I found its "network weather map," which graphically shows the load on network segments, to be an interesting tool. I thought something similar could be helpful on our network. Today, we're using Weathermap4RRD to show a high-level graphical representation of our network.
Ask me what is one of the most useful feature on the net which will remain popular for times immemorial, come what may, and I will without an iota of doubt tell you that it is maps. A one of a kind book I have come across in recent times is the Google Maps Applications with PHP and Ajax from Novice to Professional.
So you’ve got yourself a fancy Linux install now and you want to know a bit more about your hard drive? Here are a few simple commands that can show you what you have, and where it is.
Articles like this one are so misguided. ComputerWorld shows mud on its face while pretending they're subject matter experts. I'll show you below how this article was written by a ignorant journalist.
Open source seems to present a number of obstacles to those making technical purchasing decisions in those businesses that are classified non-profit. The interesting facet of this discussion, however, is that the same business needs exist in not-for-profit institutions as it does in for-profit ones. This article attempts to survey some of those issues facing open source in the not-for-profit sector of the business world.
Hard drives radically changed the way the world stores data. Hard drives have come a long way since debuting 50 years ago this week. Do they still have room to shrink?
I'm scared by Debian etch. It'll probably become the worst Debian release ever. It's going to hurt our reputation.
Mark Shuttleworth is polishing his image: Reuter's has a story which says «Millionaire cosmonaut takes on Microsoft», and Mark's own blog addresses the Debian/Ubuntu conflictual relationship: «Conflicting goals create tension in communities». I couldn't possibly trust these sayings.
Time to get on with the move. Giving up Windows is like kicking a drug habit. It’s easier to take the path of least resistance and keep using. If quitting proprietary software was a twelve step program—although, let’s not push the analogy too far.

By now, if you haven't seen Compiz and Xgl in action, you probably have heard of it. You may even be wanting to set it up yourself. If so, this guide is here for you.
Unix and Linux clients can do quite well on a Windows network. Microsoft, in fact, released its own Services for Unix, which provides some basic cross-compatibility features for Unix clients accessing Windows servers. Other, more robust interoperability solutions are also available for various network services. Fortunately, Unix has been using TCP/IP for longer than Windows, so the two operating systems at least have a networking protocol in common.
Is there an alternative for original Microsoft Windows to substitute the pirated Microsoft Windows and Office on your office computers?
Kennards Hire is ready to replace Windows server with Linux at 90 branches, to accompany 400 desktops already running the open source operating system.
Today, Wi-Fi access points everywhere, and users becoming increasingly more sophisticated in their wireless network knowledge. One good tool for discovering Wi-Fi access points is a command-line utility called Kismet. It can help with a range of issues, from diagnosing Wi-Fi interference problems to finding a particular network in a sea of airborne bits.
