It's Autumn in St. Louis, my favorite time of year in Missouri. Coats are getting progressively thicker as the temperature drops, trees are changing their leaves in a final show of brilliant color before their skeletons show, and darkness is starting to scare away the sun a bit earlier every day.
Calc and other spreadsheets have few advantages over a word processor when you are just making a list. In fact, unless you have a spreadsheet template set up so that cells have word wrap and hyphenation, you might be better off using a word processor if all you have is half a dozen items on the list. However, as the number of list items creeps up into the hundreds and beyond into the lower fringes of database territory, the different ways that you can manipulate lists in spreadsheets starts to give them a distinct advantages.
Eagle-eyed Ubuntu 6.10 users may have noticed that their favorite new version of this popular Linux distribution has an old friend: Firefox.
The origins of LDAP begin with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) based in Geneva. ITU began setting email standards which required a directory of names (and other information) that could be accessed across networks in a hierarchical fashion not dissimilar to DNS. The result of their work resulted in the X.500 series of standards which defined DAP (Directory Access Protocol), the protocol for accessing a networked directory service.
Somebody recently noted that, what with all the bombing and killing and tyrannical madness going on in the world, how can we waste all this time talking about free software? Surely there's more important stuff to worry about? Well, they’re absolutely right that there are bigger problems in the world. When I get a chance to do something more direct about it, I plan to. So far, it looks like voting is about it, though.
It is almost a common knowledge that Bill Gates had a certain vision when he co-founded Microsoft: a computer in every home that can be easily operated. Pity that this vision seemed to have had a hidden implication that every of these computers would have to run Microsoft's operating system. Nevertheless, the vision of widespread and pretty much ubiquitous digital empowerment is largely coming true.
While most operating system vendors struggle to meet their target delivery dates, Canonical is working hard at keeping its promises. Ubuntu this week released the latest version of its latest Linux distribution, code-named the Edgy Eft, and officially called Ubuntu 6.10. The release follows the last Ubuntu release, Dapper Drake, by only four months.
Suppose there was a software category so ubiquitous that virtually everyone used it and anyone could get the software for free. Suppose, also, that the software was highly standards-based, so much so that it did not require any patented or proprietary technologies to work. That software would be a perfect candidate for open source, right?
Sure, you can use the plain vanilla Firefox, but even though Firefox is already a gazillion times easier to use than IE, not to mention more reliable, adding selected extensions increases its power and adds functionality that you didn't even realize you wanted. In my opinion, Firefox extensions are awesome.
The database giant has yet to prove its Linux credibility, and may not even be such an attractive choice for support, according to customers and observers

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. plans to make chips integrating its x86 with a graphics processor on a single piece of silicon by early 2009. The announcement came as AMD completed its $5.4 billion merger with graphics chip manufacturer ATI Technologies Inc. on Wednesday.
If you rely on free virus protection programs to protect that stuff, you could end up with a false sense of security.

It is very easy to install OpenBSD/vax on the SIMH VAX simulator. All you need is a reasonably fast machine, enough disk space for a 1.5GB disk image and the floppy39.fs from your CD-ROM set. Assuming you're going to run SIMH on an OpenBSD system, install the emulators/simh package from ports.
Another step towards the 1.0 release of Wine has been done. Wine 0.9.24 has been released today. Wine is a compatibility layer to run Windows programs on GNU/Linux.
