How to train your doctor... to use open source

Luis Ibanez, a fellow Opensource.com moderator, gave a talk at the All Things Open conference this year about open source in healthcare. Luis’s story was so interesting—I hope I caught all the numbers he shared—but the moral of the story is that hospitals could save insane amounts of money if they switched to an open system.

How to create a cool terminal dashboard in Linux

Are you looking for new ways to display information in Linux? Is Conky is too mainstream for you? Are you looking for something more geeky and flexible than screenFetch? Then maybe you should consider making a dashboard in your terminal.

Ohio LinuxFest 2014 – A Look At Tomorrow

Linux is more than an alternative operating system. It’s an entire culture of sharing, of learning…and learning how to share. The torch will be passed from graybeards like Jon “Maddog” Hall to the young who are now making their talents known. Guys like Michael Schultheiss and Warren Moore…and I am just breaking my brain trying to remember the java programmer who Randy Noseworthy and I had lunch with. It’s these people that will lead us to Mars, cure diabetes and make cancer an inconvenience and not a death sentence.

Simplifying application development in the cloud

Everett Toews is a Developer Advocate at Rackspace, where he works every day to make OpenStack at large and the Rackspace Cloud specifically easier for both developers and operators to use. He is co-author of the OpenStack Operations Guide from O'Reilly, which we profiled earlier this year. Everett is also a core contributor to the Apache jclouds project, an open source tool designed to make it easier for developers to build applications which are able to reap the benefits of cloud computing while being agnostic to which cloud infrastructure project lies underneath. In this interview, we caught up with Everett to learn more about the Apache jclouds project and get a sneak peak at his talk next week at OpenStack Summit.

Configuring layer-two peer-to-peer VPN using n2n

  • ubuntugeek.com (Posted by gg234 on Oct 31, 2014 4:37 PM EDT)
  • Groups: Linux, Ubuntu
n2n is a layer-two peer-to-peer virtual private network (VPN) which allows users to exploit features typical of P2P applications at network instead of application level. This means that users can gain native IP visibility (e.g. two PCs belonging to the same n2n network can ping each other) and be reachable with the same network IP address regardless of the network where they currently belong. In a nutshell, as OpenVPN moved SSL from application (e.g. used to implement the https protocol) to network protocol, n2n moves P2P from application to network level.

What you need to know about the Drupal vulnerability CVE-2014-3704

Do you use Drupal for your personal website? Does your company use Drupal? Can’t recall the last time it was patched? Well then, as Steve Ragan outlines in this article, it is a safe bet to assume that you’ve already been compromised.

The Wide World of Canonical

I thought perhaps it was a one-off mistake, made by a marketing department flunky who had too much Red Bull while writing a press release. Being the responsible company that Canonical/Ubuntu is, and being the good FOSS community member it portrays itself to be, I assumed they’d fix the error right away and make sure that ludicrous hyperbole was not the order of the day.

Container-loving Linux vendor CoreOS has made its on-premises Docker container registry software available as a standalone product. Previously, CoreOS Enterprise Registry was only available as part of the company's Premium Managed Linux offering, which it describes as "OS as a service."

  • eWEEK; By Sean Michael Kerner (Posted by red5 on Oct 31, 2014 8:22 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
How the Drupal project was able to define the window of vulnerability is thanks in no small part to its community of hosting vendors. Greg Knaddison, director of engineering at Card.com and a member of the Drupal Security Team, explained to eWEEK that several companies that provide hosting focused on Drupal decided to create platform-level protection against this issue that not only mitigated the attacks, but also recorded data about them.
