Developers suggest that, if Blue Security had built a distributed P2P network, it could have withstood the type of attack that brought it down, along with Prolexis, Tucows, Typepad and UltraDNS.

I recently did some rearranging of our network setup, in part with the explicit aim of removing user logon access to several of the servers (both for security and for performance reasons).

The answer can be found in the timely confluence of pressures on the different stakeholders, combined with an approach that leverages the existing resources and strengths of the open source community.
My sister Erika's second grade primary school class had a problem: it had four old computers running Microsoft Windows 98, and no educational software for the computers. The computers were used mainly for viewing children's educational Web sites, and playing simple Macromedia Flash games. I decided to introduce free software into her classroom. The results were heart-warming.

As for the new version of the 500 or Cinquecento, scheduled for release in September 2007, Fiat has set up a Web site (www.Fiat500.com) inviting fans of the tiny car to submit ideas for its design.
