Rip Off

Link number two is a complete rip-off of my article (that got featured on tuxmachines) a while back.

It's all the same stuff, worded the same, just in a different position.

Real article:

re: Rip Off

According to Stallman, it's all about Freedom, so relax, it's not plagiarism, it's just "sharing".

re: rip off

well, I knew there wasn't anything new there.

oh man, you'd be surprised (or maybe not) how many blogs are ripping others off. About 20% of the links I check out in a day sound tooo familiar. If I google some of the text, many times I'll find it.

And a lot of sites recycle articles, just give them a new title. Heck forbes ran one today that sounded like a killer until I realized it was a recycle from bmighty that was a recycle from computerworld.

it's a lot of work just running an aggregator site. Big Grin

Chromium and Firefox: New Features

  • Chromebook Owners Will Soon Be Able to Monitor CPU and RAM Usage in Real-Time
    Chromium evangelist François Beaufort announced today that Google's Chrome OS engineers have managed to implement a new feature that will let Chromebook owners monitor the CPU usage, RAM, and zRam statistics in real-time. The feature was implemented in the Chrome Canary experimental channel and can be easily enabled by opening the Google Chrome web browser and accessing the chrome://flags/#sys-internals flag. There you'll be able to monitor your Chromebook's hardware and see what's eating your memory or CPU during heavy workloads, all in real-time. "Chrome OS users can monitor in real-time their CPU usage, memory and zRam statistics thanks to the new internal page chrome://sys-internals in the latest Canary," said François Beaufort in a Google+ post. "For that, enable the experimental chrome://flags/#sys-internals flag, restart Chrome, and enjoy watching real-time resource consumption."

The ISS just got its own Linux supercomputer
