  1. Looks as though Google has decided that copy-and-paste may be flawed when it comes to writing EULAs for their products: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7597699.stm
  2. I saw that this morning. Unless they fix their license agreement, it won't even make it onto my computer.
  3. I rather liked the comic. It was sufficiently technical while being still easy to read.
  4. And, naturally, they don't have the linux version ready...
  5. Daniel0: dos2unix takes care of that.
  6. It uses the same rendering engine as Safari, so I think you're safe there.
  7. I must admit, after reading the comic and learning more about the new ideas implemented in the Chrome browser, I am intrigued. I stand before you a changed man. Well. Not quite, but I'm interested, anyway. I think the part I'm most looking forward to is the separate memory space for each tab - hopefully their claim of less memory bloat is realized. As a few have already mentioned, though, I won't be ready to make the move until I see a way to analyze the DOM, watch JS execution, and analyze requests and responses a la Firebug, and streamline the pages I look at a la AdBlock Plus. And, of course, until it stabilizes.
  8. That is incredibly false. Here is a description of one record label's radio licensing policy.
  9. I am unimpressed and unconcerned. It may be a decent product, but I very much doubt that it will get to be a force of any kind in the near future.
  10. I learn best when I haven't deflated my wallet in the process. In all seriousness, though, I find that books on programming, especially books on such specific topics, are a waste of time. You can probably get the same (or better) information from a good tutorial, or by reading the manual. Books on theory, on the other hand, are an excellent purchase - any programming book I buy is not going to be riddled with code unless it's pseudo-code.
  11. Any additional layers come with a stability and security risk. If you have something running in the graphical environment, and the desktop crashes (as X likes to do on occasion), then you lose any and all processes that were spawned within it. And if you forget to lock the screen when you leave, someone can just walk in and do whatever they like. Also, the "I know how to use Gnome" argument is weak in this situation. Most production servers are certainly not going to be running a graphical environment (for the above two reasons, as well as the added resource drain that most graphical environments are), and when you get into a situation where it's not running the graphical environment, you're going to be crippled. You should learn how to use the command-line tools, for a few reasons. You get more control and power, more informative error messages, and once you learn them, you will never be unable to perform a task because of a missing graphical environment or one you don't know.
  12. Character recognition is actually pretty easy, but if the image has no identifiers to indicate that it's something important, then the bots won't know to look at it. I dare say that you're pretty safe.
  13. I named my machines after places in Greek mythology. General server: parthenon Workstation: olympus Laptop: atlantis What pattern do you use to name your machines?
  14. I've worked with Greek gods, Disney characters, Star Wars characters, and boring purpose descriptions - never comic characters, though. I think I might have to use that next time.
  15. I had no complaints with them in the two instances I worked with them - the only problem I had was with their username scheme. (They use more-or-less random strings of characters.)
