I urge you to consider leveraging the free resources available and trust you already have the motivation, the people and resources under your employ to create something durable and important for people all over the world. One way to move ahead is by scanning the works of the libraries of Stanford, Oxford, Harvard, the University of Michigan, the New York Public Library and others into the OASIS "OpenDocument" File Format of the OpenOffice desktop office suite. This will guarantee public access to the libraries' contents as well as indirectly promote Google's interests in search.
It deals with reading XML-files using DOM. I will learn more about FPC/Lazarus/XML like SAX-parsing, XPath, XML-RPC and then write some more tutorials - so, perhaps, in the end we will have a collection which can be called "FPC and XML"

A little thing I wrote after reading some biology book, about how software development works, and how we can take advantage of it.
Welcome to this year's 49th issue of DWN, the weekly newsletter for the Debian community. Bruce Byfield released a short introduction into apt-get on NewsForge. Again, developers were advised to close bugs automatically with a changelog entry only in connection with a proper description.

To paraphrase this LA Times story: The RIAA and MPAA got their posteriors handed to them on a platter this year. HR 4077, the PIRATE Act, and INDUCE (among others) all got bogged down in Congress. If this news fills you with holiday cheer, you should donate to Public Knowledge, the D.C.-based nonprofit that made it happen. I've been working with this organization since their formation and can vouch for both their effectiveness in lobbying and that their hearts are in the right places. 'Tis the season for giving. 'Tis also the season for tax-deductible donations.
The New York Stock Exchange announced its new TradeWorks trading system today, though portions of the system have been in place for months. Described as an "Extreme Availability" system by IBM, it includes up to 3,000 -- 650 are already in use on the floor of the NYSE -- custom made wireless handheld devices used by floor brokers. The handhelds talk to Linux-based workstations, which in turn talk to HP servers, and they speak to IBM Z-series mainframes running a DB2 backend.

"The Cybersource Linux vs. Windows TCO Comparison is back and better than ever. In April 2002, Cybersource undertook the first study contrasting the overall Total Cost of Ownership differences between Linux and open source platforms on the one hand, and Windows and Microsoft platforms on the other. We have now updated this report to accommodate the changes in both platforms. We have also extended the model to increase its relevance and accuracy.

In this part I will show you how to speed up Debian by using hdparm, getting sound and video to work, and finally wrapping it up with printing.
Linux advocates have long insisted that open-source development results in better and more secure software. Now they have statistics to back up their claims.
A recent controversial IDC study said that some 62% of the TCO of Linux comes from support, versus only about 50% for Windows, for which support is slightly cheaper. Though you can argue about the validity of the survey's results, no one can deny that Linux would be a more attractive solution if it were cheaper and easier to support. OpenCountry, a small company with big aspirations, is today announcing new software that aims to make that happen.
