Linux: Suspend and Resume

A recent thread on the lkml explored the current state of suspend and resume in the Linux kernel. Nigel Cunningham responded to a patch for uswsusp exclaiming, "guys! Why can't you see yet that all this uswsusp business is sheer lunacy?" He went on to reiterate his concerns that the important logic involved in suspending will take place in the kernel, and that trying to move it to userspace won't work.

Zimbra calls itself a "leader in open source messaging and collaboration," but does it live up to the name? I spent some time evaluating the suite, and while Zimbra isn't perfect, it's a decent collaboration suite that is well worth looking at if you don't already have something in place.

The Pet Peevo with TiVo

I'm sorry to see that my blog entry on recent controversies over freedom turned into a thread about TiVo. But since TiVo seems to be such a hot button, I would like to address that issue directly. I made the point in the discussion that TiVo did not license its hardware under the GPL (duh, GPL is a software license, after all), or even a GPL-like license. So all the fuss about what rights you have with respect to TiVo hardware is nonsense.

IPv6 For Real

IPv6 still seems like one of those “oh, maybe someday” things to do. But I think the sooner it gets rolled out the better. There are more advantages than just having a bigger address pool. So I shamelessly promote my own three-part series on why bother, how to read and understand IPv6 addresses, and finally how to use it IRL (in real life.)

1. Under the Hood with IPv6
2. Understand IPv6 Addresses
3. Getting Around IPv6
