Caboodle Networks Launches Open Source Semantic Web-Based Search ...

Caboodle Networks has launched an open source search engine based upon semantic web standards. This new search engine, Kit, (available for free at http://semantical.org) is ideal for finding digital content and services otherwise poorly suited to discovery by traditional text-retrieval search engines the company claims. Kit can intelligently recommend related digital content such as games, music, images, and video, thereby truly leveraging the value hidden in the “long tail” of published content.

[ED: This will be usable only if we can stop those that want to lock everything up. These same types will wonder later why no one is buying their product. Hence, they offer no other solution than sueing the malefactor non-users or having government imposed charges to subsidize their ownership expenses plus a fair profit. Make sense, provided you own one. - HC]

Average Joe makes a wiki

He's not a geek, but he believes free software is a "great way to create software that the average Joe can use." Brooks proved that point recently, after becoming disgruntled with Wikipedia administrators who kept reverting posts made by Brooks and other Beck fans at the popular community encyclopedia Web site.

AOL Email Tax Fury: 2,000 Recruits Per Hour

The boneheaded idea probably sounded great in committee: If you charge unwanted senders a ransom to bypass your spam filters, you turn them from an enforcement headache to a paying customer. Unfortunately for AOL and Yahoo, the concept hasn't had the same resonance with the public. As a result, opponents are signing up thousands of troops, while AOL's recruiting direct email customers, and Yahoo's heading for the hills. The outcome will be great fodder for a Harvard Business School case study.

SSH Tutorial for Linux

There are a couple of ways that you can access a shell remotely on most Linux/Unix systems. One of the older ways is to use the telnet program, which is available on most network capable operating systems. Accessing a shell account through telnet method though poses a danger in that everything that you send or receive over that telnet session is visible in plain text on your local network, and the local network of the machine you are connecting to. So anyone who can "sniff" the connection inbetween can see your username, password, email that you read and commands that you run. For these reasons you need a more sophisticated program to connect to a remote host.
