Recover Data From a dead hard drive using ddrescue
It's starting to look like the greatest enemy to PS3 "security" is the PS3 itself. Thanks to that handy OS named Linux, which conveniently comes prepped for the console, we're already seeing some pretty nifty things being done with the PS3, and now it's being put to good use to siphon data off of those nifty Blu-ray discs. So far nothing more than a straight transfer has been achieved, but it appears the PS3 game file structure is similar to that of the PSP. We're not sure how well on the way this puts us towards the ability to create "backup" discs of PS3 games, but at least it's a start.
Xandros today announced the addition of Xandros Desktop - Professional, a new plug and play desktop product that has been designed to work in any Microsoft/ Linux mixed environment. Xandros believes it provides a "zero learning curve" for users migrating from Windows to Linux.
P.I.M. announced that a new version of its cross-platform desktop filing system for Linux and Windows users is now available for free download.

Web browser company Opera has released another beta version of its popular mobile browser, Opera Mini.
The Xpress Linux project was set forth on October 26, 2006. The Idea was simple, give Windows users a Linux Distribution that is very easy to install, is flexible and advanced at the same time, and it needs to have a Windows style layout. The idea harvested its self into a big process that started with using the reliable and secure Ubuntu Distribution and breaking it apart and building on it to make it even more simplier. What we ended up with was a secure, reliable, and simple distrubution...
Add some sparkle to your Java apps with Quartz, an open source project that offers an extensive set of job scheduling features. This article introduces the Quartz API, starting with a general overview of the framework and concluding with a series of code examples.
The Linux-based Nokia 770 Internet tablet is an intriguing gadget for Linux enthusiasts
and professional embedded developers. Though it lacks personal information manager (PIM) apps one would expect from a palmtop-sized device, it is instead pitched as an “Internet tablet”, providing applications such as Web browser and an e-mail client.
Novell is releasing Basilisk Lizard, its codename for Release Candidate 1 (RC1) of openSUSE 10.2. RC1 is intended to help Novell fix "shipment blockers" and is, says, the last development build before v10.2 of the Linux distro hits the streets in its final version.
In the latest multi-million dollar training simulators, pilots get to shoot the bad guys out of the virtual sky, while infantry men practice driving their vehicles over virtual desert terrain. Today's sophisticated virtual trainers immerse the soldier in ever more realistic combat situations.
A vulnerability has been identified in GNU Tar, which could be exploited by malicious people to conduct directory traversal attacks. This flaw is due to errors in the "extract_archive()" and "extract_mangle()" functions when processing a "GNUTYPE_NAMES" record with a symbolic link, which could be exploited by attackers to overwrite arbitrary files by tricking a user into extracting a specially crafted archive.
A management consultant at Bain wrote me a nice email, that included the following sentence:
"Our team is conducting a benchmarking effort to gather an outside-in view on development performance metrics and best practice approaches to issues of process and organization from companies involved in a variety of software development (and systems integration)."
I didn't understand a thing he wrote.
This shows the stark contrast between the FOSS model and typical commercial business practices. It seems that merit is not even a criterion in the suits' world- TC
If you want to put Linux on an IBM server--no matter what Big Blue brand you are talking about--and you don't want to be hassled by setting it up on the box, then IBM has a bunch of services for you.
Study by tech services company convinced Assemblee Nationale that switch will be cost-effective.
The Novell-Microsoft deal is set to come up against hurdles next year with the head of the Free Software Foundation, Richard M. Stallman, confirming that the organisation would use the terms of the next version of the General Public Licence to prevent Novell from using FSF-copyrighted software.
You've read more than enough already about how Novell and Microsoft signed an agreement that's supposed to help Novell sell Linux to Microsoft customers and help Microsoft customers integrate Linux -- as long as it's Novell Linux -- into their IT environments without fear of patent lawsuits. Part of the yammer was an open letter from Novell's CEO claiming that deal didn't really mean what you thought it did, followed by a statement from Microsoft that said Novell's CEO didn't really mean to say what he said or was wrong about some of it. Or something. Then Mark Shuttleworth jumped into the mess by offering a new, Microsoft-free home for openSUSE developers who didn't want to truck with Novell any longer because of its Microsoft deal.
The Assemblée Nationale, an institution that is meaningful to any freedom-loving, truth and justice-seeking french citizen, chooses Linux, OpenOffice.org and OpenDocument on its desktops. This can be seen as a major victory in France, but although I applause these news, I am, just like many of my fellow citizens involved in the fight for digital freedom and independence quite skeptical on the progress of the Linux Desktop in France.
