Since the last week I’ve been getting my feet wet with Flex 2, a programmatic way to create Flash applications. And I’m thoroughly impressed by it!

There's a critique of my recent posts on Ubuntu over on adamw's blog titled "What is it?". I know that most, if not all, the distributions can get similar tasks done. Remember, however, that this is just a personal blog.
Today’s first session was a keynote by Adele Goldberg entitled “Premise: eLearning does not Belong in Public Schools”. I would describe her talk as disturbing and challenging but hopeful. The condition of public schools in the United States is troubling. The next session I attended was an overview of SQLAlchemy by Mark Ramm.
The first day of the annual Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting in Brusssels was very busy for the KDE team: attending talks by other talented hackers, hosting KDE related talks in the developer room, representing KDE at the booth, mingling with other hackers, bug hunting and work on new features. KDE had a strong presence this year, at least twice as many KDE people attended including a very strong showing from the Amarok developers. Speakers in the KDE developer room included Jos van den Oever, Stephan Laurient, Flavio and Sander Koning.
This tutorial shows how to implement SPF (Sender Policy Framework) in a Postfix 2.x installation. The Sender Policy Framework is an open standard specifying a technical method to prevent sender address forgery.
The vrms program will analyze the set of currently-installed packages on a Debian GNU/Linux system, and report all of the packages from the non-free tree which are currently installed.
Today was a day full of meetings so I have been on this machine pretty much non-stop. It is even nearing one AM and I’m still here.. what a day.
Another of those bizarre raves about Ubuntu. It’s a perfect example of the genre, really. The guy installs the distro, installs some updates, runs Firefox, reboots, and concludes it’s the best thing he’s ever seen.
A current mania is to exile yourself for a certain period of time into the rival desktop environment, to see how bad (or not) you would feel: a KDE fan would use GNOME, while a GNOME guy would use KDE. I have undertaken the challenge myself, and it wasn't bad at all.
After getting Windows Media Video (WMV) to successfully play within Firefox on Ubuntu 7.04, I attempted to achieve the same functionality within Suse 10.2. I pretty much succeeded.
It's been a long road to recovery, but after years of mediocre releases, and months of delays in the development process, FreeBSD is finally back on its feet with 6.2-RELEASE. Though it is an excellent operating system, it can never hope to compete with commercial GNU/Linux distributions for desktop computers.
The basic set of GNOME panel apps ranges from the practical, such as clocks and system monitors, to the mildly amusing, but apparently too traditional to dispense with, such as Fish. However, in the last few years, an increasing number of GNOME applications are being designed to fit into the panel.
I’ve always wanted to become better at 3D modeling ever since both my senior project as well as after finding out how cool graphics are going to be in desktop applications like Windows DreamScene as well as Beryl, but getting a 3D modeler for less than $300 is pretty tricky.
After collecting some 1,800 new product and service ideas from IT users and customers using an online "suggestion box," Dell Inc. has announced that it's taking the user suggestions seriously and will soon debut and sell a new line of certified, user-ready Linux-loaded desktop and laptop computers.
Sudo is a simple program which allows the administrator to give regular users extra permissions to execute the commands they would normally not be allowed to use. Thanks to sudo, we can execute commands that are usually restricted to the root account. In order to use sudo you need to configure it properly. This FAQ is supposed to help you with this task.
If you always wanted to fly but were held back by the expense and risks of flying real airplanes, you may want to give X-Plane a try. It is one of most advanced flight simulator software packages for personal computers and includes complete scenery of the planets Earth and Mars.
Ahh, today was a lot of fun at FOSDEM 2007 Smiling In the morning, I first went to the talk about software patents, then the One Laptop Per Child talk (really nifty stuff) and then the liberating java one. Then I wandered around a while at the KDE booth waiting for the afternoon talks to start.
It's come to many's attention you have claimed again and again, that Linux violates Microsoft's intellectual property. Not only that, but it's been reported Microsoft has convinced businesses to pay for a Linux patent that you can't provide.
This will be short and sweet. In this article we will be looking at the impact of CONFIG_NO_HZ/Dynamic Ticks, which will be found in the Linux 2.6.21 kernel. The end-user benefit is cooler-running processors and increased power savings.
