MEPIS updates for a fee? Get over it!

Filed under
Linux

Ace NewsForge reporter Tina Gasperson recently wrote a story about how MEPIS reseller Technalign Inc. has decided "to implement a serial number system for the retail version that will prevent unauthorized users from downloading free updates from Technalign's repository servers."

I am sure many of you will agree with me if I tell you that regular expressions are an integral part of all Posix operating systems. So what exactly are regular expressions ?

Battle of the Ajax Mail Packages

Filed under
Software

Traditionally, there have been two paths to choose from when considering mail servers. The Redmond path or the path of the penguin. Recently, the e-mail landscape has changed dramatically. For one thing, rich client tools such as Gmail and Yahoo Mail have shown the promise of Ajax. I'm sure there are many die-hard Linux folks out there who are silently saying, "who cares?"

Filed under
Software

If you are an old school Linux or Unix user, you probably remember the System Administrator's Tool for Scanning Networks (SATAN). In 1995, SATAN brought browser-based network auditing to the world. Despite its initial splash, SATAN fell to the wayside due to lack of updates.
