I've been in contact with one of the people behind DRAG, a fantastic looking racing game which will come to Linux next month. The fun fact is that the game engine is custom built under Linux too.
Last July, I wrote about two great uses for the cp command: making a backup of a file, and synchronizing a secondary copy of a folder.
Having discovered these great utilities, I find that they are more verbose than necessary, so I created shortcuts to them in my Bash shell startup script. I thought I’d share these shortcuts in case they are useful to others or could offer inspiration to Bash users who haven’t quite taken on aliases or shell functions.
While graphical user interfaces are very cool, not every program needs to run with
a point-and-click interface. For example, the venerable vi editor ran in
plain-text terminals long before the first GUI.

The Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) project has been updated today to version 3.0, a major release that ends 2017 in style for the open-source compatibility layer capable of running Windows apps and games on Linux-based and UNIX-like operating systems.
Fundamentally, beta testing is a test of a product performed by real users in the real environment. There are a number of names for this type of testing—user acceptance testing (UAT), customer acceptance testing (CAT), customer validation and field testing (common in Europe)—but the basic components are more or less the same. All involve user testing of the front-end user interface (UI) and the user experience (UX) to find and resolve potential issues.

PiCluster is a simple way to manage Docker containers on multiple hosts. It will work on x86 or ARM CPU architectures that can run Docker and Node.js. PiCluster 2.3 will be out soon and I wanted to share the exciting new Elasticsearch integration currently in the dev branch. Traditionally, PiCluster had the ability to store its log output in Elasticsearch. Starting in PiCluster 2.3, node metrics such as disk, cpu, and memory utilization is stored also. With this ability, users can easily view their host metrics over time.
It was almost 20 years ago when the first version of Linux came into the market and since then, this operating system has made its important stature beside Microsoft Windows. Linux has turned out to be one of the most acknowledged and extensively used operating system.

While Linux is considered to be the most secure operating system (ahead of Windows and MacOS), it is still vulnerable to rootkits and other variants of malware. Thus, Linux users need to know how to protect their servers or personal computers from destruction, and the first step they need to take is to protect the filesystem.

As someone who's been known to string a few words together, I know that a well-crafted outline can be a key part of any writing project. Why? A good outline helps you organize your work. It provides a structure for what you're writing as well as a roadmap from beginning to end.
Outlines aren't just for writing, either. They can be a great tool for organizing just about any kind of project.
A review of Microsoft's ugly tactics, which involve coercion and extortion (for businesses to move to Azure and/or for OEMs to preload Microsoft software) while Microsoft-connected patent trolls help hide the "enforcement" element in this whole racket
Oh, yeah, and learning new tricks and protecting stuff, sure
