More than 225 developers attended the second Vancouver PHP Conference at the University of British Columbia's Downtown Campus in Vancouver Canada this week. Organized by the Vancouver PHP Users Group, the conference attracted many of the best-known names in the PHP world. The result was a well-rounded conference that shows what an experienced group of volunteer organizers can accomplish.
These are a collection of my links pointing to free online magazines dedicated to Linux and Open Source. If you look around, a lot of effort is being expended, many of those on a voluntary basis to keep alive the spirit of Linux, Open source and Freedom.
As I prepare to do an audit of my own firewall rules, I'd like to remind everyone that this is a must-do annual exercise for your networks. When I do this, I start with some basic questions:
One of the best applications to be found in Linux is Amarok. The program is similar to Apple’s iTunes, except Amarok can actually do a lot of things better. Recently the Amarok team has released version 1.4.5 of Amarok. This version will be the last in the 1.x series and Lunapark6 also got a chance to ask Mark Kretschmann some questions.
This tutorial describes how to scan emails for image spam with FuzzyOCR. FuzzyOCR is a plugin for SpamAssassin which is aimed at unsolicited bulk mail containing images as the main content carrier.
Since the death of Mandrake we have only used Mandriva Linux once or twice a year, but with the first beta now out for 2007.1 we decided to give it another go.

For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel north to Sweden to meet a developer and promotion guru who is charting a course toward success, someone who should not be crossed in a dojo - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Inge Wallin.
The Inkscape team has just released version 0.45, and it includes initial support for SVG filters. The first one implemented is Gaussian Blur. Raquel Ravanini was quick to try it in KMahjongg tiles.
