Mysql Documentation Update; Week 24

  • Free Software Magazine; By Martin Brown (Posted by dcparris on Jun 20, 2006 9:39 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Announcements; Groups: MySQL
Documentation is a vital part of any application, proprietary or free software, as it is often the first way to communicate with users about the application or software and how it should be used. I also think it tends to be one of the areas most taken for granted; most users expect it to be there and often forget just how much effort goes into producing it.

Where's The Memory?

As one example of this phenomenon, the SUSE Linux system that I use for my public Web and e-mail server originally only had 512 MB of RAM. This should have been more than adequate for the lightweight load that I was expecting, but the system tools showed that the box was constantly running low on memory. And even after I bumped it up to a full gigabyte, the system still complained.

Setting up RAID-1 mirroring on a running remote Linux system over ssh session

Setting up RAID-1 mirroring on a running remote Linux system over ssh session RAID -1 allows to create an exact copy of the original drive. Thus, it results into the increased fault tolerance and easy data recovery option for single server. It is true that the best and easy way to setup a RAID 1 is during installation. But if you forget to setup RAID – 1 during installation or if you have added new hard disk after installation, then this how to covers setting up a RAID-1 mirroring on a running remote Linux system over ssh session.

How the Net was Lost - the real story behind Net Neutrality

  • Free Software Magazine; By David Sugar (Posted by fsmdave on Jun 20, 2006 6:23 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
In the beginning, the Internet was a peering arrangement where all nodes were treated equally, and anyone could interconnect from any one node to another. The Internet flourished and grew because nobody was in control of traffic. That millions now are classified as passive consumers already is an affront to the dream of an active community where everyone has opportunity to participate and publish. The remaining struggle over Net Neutrality today is simply one of how small and how privileged a minority will still retain the ability to publish.

Ruby and .NET - how will they taste together?

Wow, big news to start off my new blog. The Gardens Point GP Ruby .NET development team has announced an initial beta version of their system.

At this point, they claim that it can compile Ruby source into verifiable .Net v2.0 assembly, or it can run Ruby code directly in a compile, load and execute cycle. They do warn that their implementation is not yet complete, although it does pass everything in samples/test.rb (I wonder if they're using theRubicon/Rubytests stuff for further testing?).
