Looking for help to bring a new app to the world

Aloha folks,

For those programmers, packagers, etc... who might be looking to help on a new project, maybe you will find this interesting.

I am working on bringing a new locally installable app for beekeeping to the world. I am not a programmer, I won't even pretend to be, but I know beekeeping, I know networking, servers and installation issues, etc as a network tech/admin for the past about 15 years.

There have been a few new introductions come out that are web based, but they are not open source nor are they available for download to run on one's own server.

Web based apps are fine perhaps for hobbyists, but for beekeepers with a large number of hives and especially those in business, there are certain risks inherent in web based apps that are much better solved by a locally installed app.

I am working to put together a very inclusive local app that accommodates a variety of hive types and management methods as many beekeepers are incorporating a variety of hive types instead of relying only one one as has been seen in the past.

Ideally, I am hoping to get the result of a web facing server app that a local business can install and run on one machine at home or on their own server so that their employees where-ever they might bee can access it as well.

It will need to be designed in the vein as a firefox or libreoffice, etc in that there will need to be a way to install it to Windows, Linux, even Apple machines.

If you are interested in helping make this happen, please contact me at bigbear at bbe-tech.com

ArcticFox 27.9.19 release

Code has been fixed to support newer compilers. On Linux, currently, the highest supported compiler remains gcc 6.5, more recent versions do compile now with this release, but fail to link afterwards with errors on very standard symbols. Help appreciated! On NetBSD gcc 7 now works fine instead. Read more

FreeDOS 1.3 RC2

We are moving toward the FreeDOS 1.3 release. FreeDOS 1.3 Release Candidate 2 is now available for download. Please help us test this new version! A big feature in FreeDOS 1.3 will be booting into a LiveCD version of FreeDOS. You can test this by downloading FD13-LiveCD.zip, which contains FD13LIVE.ISO. This media is similar to the LegacyCD. However instead of relying on the BIOS floppy disk emulation, it uses SYSLINUX and MEMDISK to boot an emulated floppy disk. Along side support to perform a Plain and Full installation FreeDOS, this media is also able to run FreeDOS live from RAM or CD (depending on computer system and hardware) without installation to an internal hard disk drive. You can also download FreeDOS 1.3 RC2 in "Full" and "Lite" versions, and a "Legacy" CDROM version that is set up to let the CDROM boot on older hardware. Most users should try the LiveCD version.

Best Linux log file management and monitoring tools

In most Linux distros, system administrators would keep an eye on log files from time to time in production environments, in order to get a glimpse at the health of the system, the running state of applications, potential memory issues, events with high priority…This will help them improve the overall system performance and to proactively avoid future problems which might affect the users and their applications. Viewing and analyzing the log files is no easy task if done without using the appropriate tools and utilities. In this article, we will be looking at some of the best log file monitoring and management applications that are in use today. Read more
