Even casual Ajax developers will notice the x in Ajax, and realize that it stands for XML. In this article, you'll see how servers can send XML in response to a request. XML is one of the most popular data formats in any programming medium, and offers real advantages for server responses in asynchronous applications.
Technologic continues to reduce the boot time, price, and size of its embedded boards and systems targeting remote sensing and other power-critical applications. Its new $100 ARM9-based TS-7400 board can boot Linux in 1.1 seconds, and is available as part of a tiny WiFi-enabled system.
Why are you paying so much in licensing costs and annual maintenance when you could use PostgreSQL for free, and get community support and upgrades for free as well? This is the question that Neil Matthew and Richard Stones pose to smaller companies regarding their less critical applications.

If you've ever been frustrated with the artificial intelligence (AI) in video games, then you are a prime candidate for Neuro-Evolving Robotic Operatives (N.E.R.O.), a cross-platform combat game where the key to winning is training your own intelligent non-player characters. On the field of play, the only rule is "let the best AI win." I tested my skills with the Linux client, and found N.E.R.O. to be a very different sort of game.
Today we dive into writing custom udev rules. Why would you want to acquire this strange knowledge? Because, believe it or not, computers are not yet perfect, so sometimes we must fix them. USB scanners are notorious examples of needing human intervention to be usable by non-root users. Managing device permissions is something you're bound to bump into sooner or later – the traditional Unix method of user and group permissions no longer works on udev-managed devices. USB devices are moving targets that take on different names if you don't nail them down. If you want to give them friendly, memorable names, you'll need to know how to configure udev.
