When you're working in an organization where statements like "Good ideas can come from anyone" and "Experiment! We learn more from our mistakes than our successes!" are commonplace, does saying "no" create a contradiction that impedes adaptability and inclusivity?
The answer depends on how you say "no" and the things you say "no" to.

The uniq command reports or even deletes repeated lines in a file. In this article, we will discuss uniq through easy to understand examples.
Linux, in keeping with Unix traditions, doesn't have a comprehensive systems management API. Instead, management is done through a variety of special-purpose tools and APIs, all with their own conventions and idiosyncrasies. That makes scripting even simple systems-management tasks difficult and brittle.
After a long wait, Valve pushed earlier a new update of its Debian-based SteamOS gaming operating system to the brewmaster_beta channel with some major improvements.
Support for high DPI monitors has been included in Fedora Workstation for some time now. If you use a monitor with a high enough DPI, Fedora Workstation automatically scales all the elements of the Desktop to a 2:1 ratio, and... Continue Reading →
In a unanimous decision, the justices held that the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which handles all patent appeals, has been using the wrong standard to decide where a patent lawsuit can be brought. Today's Supreme Court ruling in TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods enforces a more strict standard for where cases can be filed. It overturns a looser rule that the Federal Circuit has used since 1990.
After six years as a formal project, OpenStack has survived numerous raids and famines and now finds itself in a not-too-weird space of being boring, on-premises infrastructure. That is, “boring” in the good way of focusing on what users want and fixing existing problems, only chasing shiny objects - cough, PaaS, cough, containers, cough, orchestration - as much as needed.…
TThe COM Express Compact Type 6 “MSC C6C-AL” taps Intel’s Apollo Lake with up to 16GB DDR3L, microSD and optional eMMC, and support for 5x PCIe slots. MSC Technologies continues to round out its line of Intel “Apollo Lake” computer-on-modules with a 95 x95mm COM Express Compact Type 6 MSC C6C-AL.

Nextcloud gives even the smallest businesses a private cloud to call their own.
?Once upon a time, there used to be a very popular app called Stormcloud. And then it was no more. With the developer citing a range of issues including issues with the Yahoo API being used and the lack of time on the part of the developer. Some folks in the Linux community tried resurrecting it by creating a fork called Typhoon. And unfortunately, once again, that did not last for a long time. Now another developer by name Daryl Bennett with the aid of the original developer of Stormcloud has resurrected the app, and now it is called Cumulus.
Ben Hall from Katacoda and Ocelot Uproar gave an awesome talk at OSCON 2017 about another topic near and dear to my heart: documentation! This is a summary of his presentation.
The journey to documentation begins before you think it does, on the very first page of your site. Users look at your website or GitHub—and often the examples and demos you post there—before they read any of your guides.
Too risky, too spammy, too smutty, say devs
Developers of the popular Kodi plug-in Navi-X have pulled the plug on further development, citing the "current legal climate" around its work.…
In this tutorial, I will show you step by step to configure MySQL securely for remote connections with SSL. MySQL is an open source relational database system that works on many Operating Systems including Windows, Linux, MacOS and FreeBSD. It is probably the most popular OpenSource RDBMS and a central component of the LAMP and LEMP Stacks.
?Over the years, Lubuntu and Xubuntu have been two popular flavors that have provided an alternative to a lot of folks who have preferred something other than vanilla Ubuntu with the Unity desktop. Lubuntu and Xubuntu have been the choice of Linux enthusiasts and users who would rather have a lean or lightweight Linux distro or one that will provide the best performance on an old desktop or laptop. But how do these two distros compare, which one would I recommend and why? Let’s read along as I weigh the strengths and weaknesses of these two awesome Ubuntu flavors.

Haskell is a standardized, general-purpose, polymorphically statically typed, lazy, purely functional language, very different from many programming languages. Recent innovations include static polymorphic typing, higher-order functions, user-definable algebraic data types, a module system, and more. It has built-in concurrency and parallelism, debuggers, profilers, rich libraries and an active community, with approximately 5,400 third-party open source libraries and tools.
If you're a homeschool parent or a teacher with a limited budget, Internet-in-a-Box might be just what you've been looking for. Its hardware requirements are very modest—a Raspberry Pi 3, a 64GB microSD card, and a power supply—but it provides access to a wealth of educational resources, even to students without internet access in the most remote areas of the world.
Dnscrypt is a protocol that is used to improve DNS security by authenticating communications between a DNS client and a DNS resolver. DNSCrypt prevents DNS spoofing. It uses cryptographic signatures to verify that responses originate from the chosen DNS resolver and haven’t been tampered with. DNSCrypt is available for multi-platforms including Windows, MacOS, Unix, Android, iOS, Linux and even routers.
In the past three months, I've heard a lot of people talking about what they think tech companies can or should do in order to protect women and minorities and anyone who experiences unlawful treatment like harassment, discrimination, or retaliation. Most of the discussion has centered around promoting diversity and inclusion, which is fantastic and important, but, I believe, slightly misses the point.
Linux, Android, and Blackberry's QNX race for control of car infotainment systems.
Intel has launched its “Euclid” robotics compute module, which runs Ubuntu on an Atom x7-Z8700, and offers a RealSense 3D cam, WiFi, and sensors. When Intel demonstrated its Intel Euclid robotics controller at last August’s Intel Developer Conference, the company gave no indication of its release date or even if it would be more than […]
The development team behind ReactOS, an open source project attempting to create a free computer operating system that's 100% compatible with Windows binaries, announced the release of ReactOS 0.4.5.
Axiomtek’s tough, Linux-ready “eBOX100-312-FL” embedded computer offers a Celeron N3350 SoC, a SATA bay, and 2x mini-PCIe, HDMI, GbE, and USB 3.0 ports. The fanless, 216 x 137.65 x 44mm eBOX100-312-FL is not quite as compact as Axiomtek’s similarly rugged, Bay Trail Atom based eBOX620-841-FL and eBOX625-841-FL computers. Yet, it offers benefits such as a […]
