  • Enterprise Networking Planet; By Charlie Schluting (Posted by tuxchick on Nov 24, 2005 12:52 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial
In the olden days, there were Class A, B and C networks. These could only be divided up into equal parts, so VLSM, or Variable Length Subnet Masks , were introduced. The old Class C was a /24, B was a /16, and A was a /8. (Check out Understanding IP Addresses if you're not clear on what that means.) That's all you need to know about Classes. They don't exist anymore.

Open document formats and the path to world domination

Microsoft's never ending fight to remain relevant while defeating nasty attacks upon its bulwark, which unnecessarily distracts this valiant company from more worthy tasks such as getting a lock on the Internet nearly matching its hold on both the PC desktop and most of the Office type applications. Woe unto them that do not recognize how unworthy they are to desire the fruits that this company so assiduously picked off so many dead, dying, decaying and those still living but consigned to a similar fate. Companies that hold any shred of property (IP or otherwise) that Microsoft desired, becomes theirs. Be warned ODF will suffer the same fate. Though the path may be long and the dead will strewn alongside our skewed path. Be fearful you lackeys, open source, free types we shall not rest until your are gone or if we are forced to we will compromise if we must. But until then: the world belongs to us and anything you own too is ours. Just kidding, I think.

EFF's Sony Complaint - as text

  • Groklaw; By Pamela Jones (Posted by tuxchick on Nov 24, 2005 8:55 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
The EFF complaint asks that Sony BMG be required to fix the damage to victims' computers, and it says the EULA is unconscionable, listing specific things the Plaintiffs allege are unconscionable in the EULA that accompanies both XCP and MediaMax. When you read the list, I think you will agree it's hard to argue with EFF that this list is anything a reasonable man would agree to without duress, and as you read them, ask yourself: What do they have to do with copyright rights?
