Using perl -e allows you to specify a script right on the command line. It's a powerful, underused feature even for people who use Perl regularly. Perl's powerful command line options make it a more flexible replacement for sed, awk, and even vi.

Do as I say, not as I do.
If you believed you had been wrongfully accused of phishing, how long would it take you to respond? A day? A week? How about four-and-a-half months? That's the elapsed time between Email Battles' tracking of a phishing scam to a Norwegian website, and the owner's complaint. In the interest of fairness, EB quickly followed-up.

Once upon a time, long long ago, everyone who was anyone in the Kingdom of Linux used SlackWare. Then, along came Red Hat, which many people in the kingdom thought was neater and had a great package manager. So, all the followers of the Great Penguin placed Red fedoras upon their heads and they were happy...
Microsoft joining the tiny committee that will reconcile the comments appended to "no" votes in the ISO voting process. The voting period is almost over, and the apparent goal is to slow down the official adoption of ODF while the Microsoft XML Reference Schema tries to race through Ecma to catch up.
Just found this in Wikipedia. There is a new Firefox extension which allows you to read ODF without downloading the 70-100MB OOo main program, in case you just want to view the document or you are on dial-up and it would take a long time to download the whole OOo package.
Sendmail, Inc. has recently become aware of a security vulnerability in certain versions of sendmail Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) and UNIX and Linux products that contain it. Sendmail was notified by security researchers at ISS that, under some specific timing conditions, this vulnerability may permit a specifically crafted attack to take over the sendmail MTA process, allowing remote attackers to execute commands and run arbitrary programs on the system running the MTA, affecting email delivery, or tampering with other programs and data on this system.
