In recently-aired plans by telephone companies, content providers who are willing to pay extra would get their content delivered at a higher bandwidth. While it's easy to wax indignant over telephone companies' presumptuousness in deciding what packets should travel at what times, it's harder to step back and take in the economic issues driving the proposed change. And there are technical questions about it as well. On Digg.com

As open source software becomes more and more prevalent in the everyday life or more and more people, many are quick to point to it as evidence of the success of a new way of developing software. However, before there even was an open source community, there was the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and the Free Software movement. Today, the FSF is as active as ever, promoting their ideals and goals. One group has formed itself around these Free Software ideals, and expanded to include the idea of Free Culture as well. This group has found a home at Libervis.com and the associated Libervis Network, founded by Daniel Orsolic. Recently Daniel took some time to sit down with us and discuss his group's history, future, and share some of his own views and opinions on free Software and Free Culture.
Open source: Although it is still merely rumor, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison explains why buying JBoss would make sense.

My preaching the joys of Mac to all my coworkers has claimed another victim; John, who I share my office with, purchase a shiny new 20" iMac G5 two days ago. John asked me for a way to get some files off his old Windows PC without booting Windows, because his Windows install is very flaky, and doesn't like to boot anymore. I developed the following procedure using a Ubuntu Live CD.

Using more than one hard drive to achieve better performance and fault tolerance is very common. Less well known is that it's also possible to aggregate more than one network interface into a single logical interface. In Linux, this is handled by the bonding driver. Benefits of doing this are much the same as the benefits of aggregating discs using RAID: if one device dies, your server carries on working and by using two devices in parallel, performance can be improved.
Even as the hype and hoopla surrounding the release of Internet Explorer 7.0 continues to circulate online, it is Firefox, which is quietly doing a great job and is in fact generating more interest that anything that is on the anvil from Redmond at the moment.
