Another Linux Migration - MS Can't Be Liking This.

That headline is designed to grab your attention. Sensationalistic as it may be, it also happens to be true, if what you mean by 'terrorize' is to provoke fear.

Due to concern over the effect of Stephan Gregoire’s injury in yesterday’s practice session and how it may affect our participation in the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 27, we thought it would be helpful to clarify the qualifying procedure for the race and explain why there is little reason for concern regarding our participation as a result of this incident.

Rolling the Cheese

So when I read about Microsoft's General Counsel Brad Smith telling Fortune magazine about the 235 Microsoft patents upon which Linux is supposedly infringing, my first question was why? My next question was, why now? The timing of this bit of FUD has me very curious. As in comedy, timing can be very important in business. So why is it that, after trying this exact same line of FUD in 2004, Microsoft is trying again?

Programming Flex 2

  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups:
I've been doing a fair amount of documenting on Flash related technologies and have considered dabbling in ActionScript (if you know JavaScript, you have at least a leg up on learning ActionScript) so I thought it was time to stretch into the arena of Flex 2. I found the concept of Flex to be a bit confusing at first. After all, if Flex builds Flash applications and Flash CS3 Professional builds Flash applications, why use one over the other? Since ActionScript is the scripting language underneath both development platforms, what's the difference? Naive questions I know, but they're answered in Programming Flex 2.

A month on the command line, Day 15: I get POP into mutt

With the help of My First Mutt, I figured out how to import POP mail into mutt: To browse a POP3 mailbox, just hit c to change mailboxes. Then, instead of typing the name of a local mailbox, you can enter the location of your POP3 server. This is much like typing the URL for a page in a web-browser: pop://

Remembering Progeny

Two weeks ago, I heard that Progeny Linux Systems of Indianapolis had closed its doors for the last time. The end was a long-time coming – in fact, six years longer than I predicted. All the same, I paused last week for a bit of nostalgia. Working for the company in 2000-01 gave me my first sense of my potential and gave me a sense of self-worth at a time when I badly needed it.
