troy-at-kde.livejournal: Now yesterday I decided that in order to get some of the KDE 4 build deps up to date, I would go through the Feisty->Gutsy update using the official instructions posted on their website (which I conveniently found via the /topic in #kubuntu). The actual upgrade process seemed to go smoothly, and it removed some old packages and programs that I never used anyway. All is well until I reboot.

ktvu.com: Without an explanation, an Alameda County Superior Court judge ordered a 24-hour delay Monday in the long-waited trial of Han Reiser for the murder of his estranged wife, Nina.
ruminations: I have been using open source software for quite some time, so I have a list of programs I want to have on my system. lso lazy. Or -as a colleague once explained- extremely efficient. I don’t want to spend a lot of time or energy on installing the software. The more set-and-forget, the more I like it.

computerworld: With the BIOS business in a long-term decline, Phoenix is aiming for a rebirth as a vendor of technology that, instead of enabling Windows, starts to compete with it.
nbc11.com: Convicting a defendant of charges that he murdered a person whose body hasn't been found is a challenging but not overwhelming task, prosecutor Paul Hora said as he prepared to deliver his opening statements in the trial of Hans Reiser Monday.
linux.com: When you listen to digital music, your software or hardware player usually shows information about the current song, which it gets from MP3 tags or Ogg Vorbis comments. Most ripping software supports acquiring this metadata from the CDDB or FreeDB services based on a CD's disc ID. But you can also can fill in and edit metadata with tools such as EasyTag and Picard.
iTWire: It is not uncommon for those who write about Linux or other FOSS software to be inundated with feedback from users. At times that feedback is a bit unbalanced, a trifle raw and, occasionally, plain silly.
googleblog.blogspot: Despite all of the very interesting speculation over the last few months, we're not announcing a Gphone. However, we think what we are announcing -- the Open Handset Alliance and Android -- is more significant and ambitious than a single phone.
ITtoolbox Blogs: The age old "discussions" that float around the internet in regards to Linux and windows security are contentious ones. It all seems to boil down to Linux people saying that Linux is more secure and windows people saying that it is not. In this case the windows guys are right, with exceptions.
hackfud.net: The Open Document Foundation has nothing to do with the Open Document Format. Really, they should change their name. For one thing, it’s confusing and diluting the acronym for the Open Document Format. Another thing is, they, appear to be very, very confused about what they are doing.
iTWire: Network monitoring and intrusion detection are integral parts of network security. This becomes even more important when introducing wireless access, because now there’s an openly available entry point into your network. Here’s how to build monitoring in from the onset along with some great open-source tools.

abhay-techzone.blogspot: I have a three years old desktop with AMD 2400+ CPU, 640 MB RAM on a Via KM400 motherboard. I love my desktop as it helps me in experimenting with the latest and the greatest software and distribution releases. Currently I have OpenSUSE 10.3 on it. Its a fairly old computer so I could not try the latest eye candy on it, I am referring to compiz-fusion.
geekybits.blogspot: In July I wrote a post which has been quite popular called: Turning Ubuntu's Brown Eyes Blue. This post was about changing themes in Ubuntu, getting away from the orange and brown colours and using mostly blue. Things have changed quite a bit since July and changing themes in the new Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) is a little bit different, therefore I thought I would offer some fresh advice.
What is needed here is a celebrity distro match, battle to the death. And in the blue corner, weighing in at 70lbs, wearing knobbly knees and a tank top, master of the inane, lord or pointlessness, it's Faaaaaaaanboy! And in the orangy corner, weighing in at 71.123984775lbs, taking into account a floating point error, compiled 1 second faster, the spark of the unholy distro...'buntu basher masher.

linux.com: If you're using TiddlyWiki as your note-taking tool, you ought to give TiddlySnip a try. The idea behind this Firefox extension is simple: it allows you to add the currently viewed Web page or selected text snippet to your TiddlyWiki as a new tiddler. But TiddlySnip adds a few clever twists to this basic idea, which turn the Firefox/TiddlyWiki combo into a powerful and extremely useful tool.
