What was once i2t back back in the day and then OutRider is now Systhread and they (he?) are pumping out a lot of content for Linux and Unix heads. First off, a rsync script and then a Perl Daemon. Take a look at systhread, a reinvigorated version of two old net sites, i2t and OutRider (or the OutRider Computing Journal). Apparently Jay Fink went all out and bought a FQDN for Systhread and has kicked off with 2 simple - yet very interesting stories, on using rsync and writing a daemon in Perl. Have fun.

The free and open source software world offers many different licenses, and this richness has both advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, developers differ in what they want to let others do with their code, and consequently need different licenses. On the other, many licenses do not allow anyone to use the code to which they apply inside products governed by other licenses (cross-license sharing). But this problem may be solved by a special kind of license -- a metalicense.
