Pushing Firefox to the Limit

Filed under
Moz/FF

Sure, you can use the plain vanilla Firefox, but even though Firefox is already a gazillion times easier to use than IE, not to mention more reliable, adding selected extensions increases its power and adds functionality that you didn't even realize you wanted. In my opinion, Firefox extensions are awesome.

Filed under
HowTos

Here are some of the tools to manage rsync easily.

FC6 Xen - no luck here

Filed under
Linux

I first installed Fedora Core 6 in a Parallels Virtual Machine. That was fine, but I quickly realized that I wanted to investigate this more deeply, and especially wanted to look at the Xen integration. So, I created CD's and did the install on "Trusty Old Spare". Yeah.. well, yes, but.. things didn't go so well.

Upgrade to Ubuntu Edgy (6.10) - and a look back on the switch

Filed under
Ubuntu

Try a search on quite a few blogs and you’ll find stories on switching to Linux, but somehow a few months or a year later you see the same person talking a lot about Windows-Software and Windows-Gadgets in a way that makes it clear, that at some point they switched back. So I the past months I was keen on seeing whether I got to that point where I just wanted to “get back to good old Windows” – the short answer: it never came.

Regular Expressions: Tile makes Tcl look good

Filed under
Software

Tile will change the face of computing. Well, maybe. It could; Tile's a Tcl project, though, and Tcl doesn't operate the same as other languages or programs. So, while Tile might have an enormous affect on standard practices for development of graphical user interface (GUI) projects, there are no guarantees.

Red Hat Summit

  • Red Hat Summit Advocates the Power of Participation
    Red Hat hosted its annual Red Hat Summit customer event June 28-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with a theme of harnessing the power of participation. Once again, the DevNation developer event, which is the successor to JBoss World, was co-located with Red Hat Summit. For JBoss, 2016 is a particularly significant year as it marks 10 years since Red Hat acquired it. At DevNation, Red Hat announced the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 release, providing new cloud-enhanced capabilities for Red Hat's flagship middleware platform. JBoss is now also working to help enable Java for the container era, with the launch of the MicroProfile Project, an effort to optimize enterprise Java for a microservices architecture. Java wasn't the only focus of DevNation this year either, as Microsoft took center stage too, announcing the availability of its .NET Core for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2016 events.
