You should see if we can get the Prodigy domain names back from AT&T;

they don't appear to be using them anymore. There's enough brainpower


When I first tried to do this it was a matter of politics, and I lost being a nobody.
Now it would be impossible simply because it's owned by the machine, and they probably don't have the ability to get rid of it.

Ah, I see that the new AT&Tigy webmail portal *is* Yahoo. That explains why they look identical.

It was about time.  The only way that AT&T could get around the whole "public utility filtering my email content" debacle was to outsource the actual handling of their high speed internet customers' email to a company that wasn't a public utility.

From Ars Technica:  "Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth has announced that version 11.10 of the popular Linux distribution will be codenamed Oneiric Ocelot. As per Ubuntu's usual six-month schedule, the release is due to arrive in October of this year.

The word "oneiric" describes a dreamlike state. Shuttleworth says that the name Oneiric Ocelot is intended to represent the innovation process, which he characterizes as a confluence of daydream and discipline."

 

 

Please, somebody stop Shuttleworth before he alliterates again.

I've been following Shuttleworth's blog for the last couple of months (hit up the hidden room 'Mark Shuttleworth' here on Uncensored if you want to see it). Right now he's pretty busy conducting a flame war with the GNOME developers while trying to give the appearance that everyone is I'm-ok-you're-ok and it's not actually a flame war.

Meanwhile I really want to get a hold of the prodigy.* domain names, I know it's silly but I still feel like the bunch of us could do a better web portal than most of the crap out there.

Sad, but it does seem that Linux Today and Linux Planet have been on their way out for some time now. Between the incompetent management and the Microsoft ads ... actually it was having Carla at the helm that kept me reading it, but I'm switching back over to LXer as my primary Linux news source.

Today I got rid of bind and dhcpd on my home server, and replaced them with dnsmasq [http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq/doc.html]. Nice lean little program -- really gets the job done with no fuss.

This is a great DNS/DHCP server for a home network, but it would also serve nicely at a branch office.

Little by little I'm simplifying my home setup. I doubt it'll ever get to the point where my family can maintain it if I get hit by a bus, but it's simpler than it used to be. We're all enjoying the benefits of having a file server and in-house VoIP, so those are still in place.

On the other hand, gone are the days when I meticulously put a static IP and a little Dymo label on every computer in the house. And I've ditched nearly every server except the main one and an identical cold spare. Virtualization makes the roomful of machines a thing of the past.

I don't buy into the cloud hype, no. However I am a big fan of the idea of pooling data center resources into virtualization systems and then throwing workload at the "cloud" instead of onto individual servers. It's very efficient and offers a lot of operational advantages.

It is NOT, however, a magic solution to every conceivable problem. And I'm totally NOT on board for the whole public cloud thing. Do you really want to trust your precious data to a bookseller?

yeah, I see the value in randomly loading equipment and all that. I imagine it's really cool to watch and even cooler to implement.

Remeber that thing I wrote I forget what I called it now, but that was my end goal: to have every PC particpate in cpu sharing thus making everybody a member and user of the cloud. Subether, I think that's what that one was.

Speaking of buying into stupid shit.
Actually this has nothing to do with it, but it made me laugh...

btw, the google aprils fool was also pretty nice. I'd like to have this in konjunction with the Kinect and the usual deaf signaling language. Could become pretty fast, plus the real deaf ones could use of some more non deaf having a good reason to learn their language.

And today I found another use for dnsmasq. I needed a very small DNS forwarder to sit inside an environment and answer queries that a global load balancing system wouldn't want to answer itself. One program binary, and one tiny (20 lines) configuration file. This so beat the pants off of trying to set up and customize bind.

And I also discovered that it does TFTP too! The more I use dnsmasq the more I like it.

So, the big news this week [http://goo.gl/iAVD5] is that Oracle is turning OpenOffice into a purely community project, and is discontinuing the "commercial version" (whatever that means).

Details are slim right now. It isn't clear whether they intend to hand the trademark and domain name over to The Document Foundation (aka the LibreOffice people) or do something else. What *is* clear is that after The Document Foundation was formed, *everyone* in the project other than Oracle moved over there.

We should find out soon enough whether Oracle has seen the light and is doing its best to re-harmonize the project, or if they've simply decided to give up on the project altogether. It really doesn't fit with what Oracle wants to do with software anyway (aside from Ellison thinking "I can screw Microsoft with this? cool!).

There are some things I'd like to see OO.o do in the not too distant future. For example, I think with their platform-agnostic toolset, they are uniquely positioned to deliver an open source office-suite-that-works-in-a-browser (with all of the requisite "cloud" buzzwordianism attached to it, of course).
Hopefully once the project is truly out in the open, this kind of development will flourish.

the browser one which seemed to be the one oracle was primarily interested in...

so i finally made the permanent switch to Ubuntu on my main tower. It was the only computer in my house that was running Win7.

Now it's running Ubuntu 10.10 with Win7 in a VM (for my windows programming purposes).

 

 

... it's nice to be home :D
