oh dear... Sterrenbeelden Element Lucht (Luchtteken) Aquarius
Element Lucht: Denken Bij het element lucht horen de sterrenbeelden: Waterman, Tweeling en Weegschaal Luchttypes kunnen zijn zoals de lucht en de wind: licht en wendbaar. Ze zijn actief, beweeglijk en snel van begrip. Ze vinden het prettig om feiten en gegevens te verbinden. Het accent ligt op abstract denken, theoretiseren en het werken met ideeën. Ze kunnen vernieuwers van het denken zijn..
Luchttekens proberen alles wat ze meemaken zo objectief mogelijk te benaderen, zijn communicatief ingesteld. Ze vinden het prettig om de dingen met andere mensen te bespreken. Luchttekens zijn flexibel, maar de keerzijde is dat ze niet altijd even standvastig zijn. Ze lopen het gevaar de dingen te veel logisch te willen verklaren en verstandelijk benaderen, waardoor ze soms koel en gevoelloos kunnen overkomen. Luchttypes hebben wat moeite met gevoelens, omdat deze niet logisch te verklaren zijn. Ze kunnen moeite hebben met het relativeren van de eigen wensen, verlangens en emoties.
Luchttypes zijn nieuwsgierig, snel en in veel dingen geïnteresseerd. Ze hebben graag mensen om zich heen en houden van gezelligheid. Toch hechten ze zich niet echt (snel) aan iets of iemand. Dit komt door hun drang naar onafhankelijkheid en vrijheid. Ze houden niet van problemen en sombere stemmingen; deze gaan ze liever uit de weg. Dit met het idee dat het zich vanzelf wel oplost.
Het bewustzijn van de Luchtmens is gericht op het samenbrengen van verschillende situaties, voorbeelden en denkbeelden. Uit deze samensmelting vormt het luchttekens hun beeld van de werkelijkheid en hoe ze moeten leven. Soms heeft dit niets te maken met de reële of echte werkelijkheid, maar het is het gewoon hun werkelijkheid. Luchttypes kunnen sterk zijn in het op elkaar afstemmen en organiseren van activiteiten met de meest uiteenlopende menstypes.
Communicatie en contacten zijn voor luchttekens erg belangrijk. Ze hebben een drang om met anderen te praten, discussiëren en ideeën uit te wisselen. Er kan een tendens bestaan om te veel nadruk te leggen op contacten en kennisuitwisseling. Maar de positieve kant van dit gegeven is dat ze hierdoor vaak goed zijn in de handel en verkoop; zijn het echte handelsmensen.

we have all these nice tools we can enjoy and make our lives a little bit easier... however... they are all different tools with different interfaces and often you have to start another application to access the feature you want.
Now imagine you could access all these tools with 1 single keystroke? Like... lets say function key 12.
So imagine we hit F12 and this instantly opens-up a window. The cursor is positioned on the only input field available in that window, ready to type or even paste something from the clipboard. Now imagine that this field is linked to a multitude of functions that vary from simple searches to starting macros or applications with arguments... <DEMO>

Opteron dual core socket F or AM2
SIS chipset : SiS756
dual channel DDR2-667 (333MHz)
Silicon Integrated Systems confirmed that the new generation of AMD Socket AM2 central processing units (CPUs) include embedded dual-channel DDR2 memory controller PC2-5300 (DDR2 667MHz) memory and 1000MHz HyperTransport bus speed, something which was expected to face a boost to 1333MHz. AMD Socket AM2 processors will include the Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 and Sempron series microprocessors, the chipset company indicated.
M2 will be accompanied by updated AMD processors with an on-board memory controller that supports DDR 2 SDRAM. It's expected to be accompanied by Socket F, for the company's Opteron 2xx and 8xx server processor lines, and Socket S1 for notebook systems. ®
Socket F is expected to debut in 2006 as the interconnect for future dual-core AMD Opteon 2xx and 8xx server processors, all with 'Pacifica' virtualisation technology and probably AMD's 'Presidio' security system. Like Socket M, the desktop and Opteron 1xx interconnect, Socket F will support DDR 2 SDRAM, certainly clocked to 533MHz and 667MHz, and possibly up to 800MHz.
new type of Opteron, the "Rev F" models, code-named Santa Rosa, Brent Kerby, AMD's Opteron product marketing manager said. It will include Pacifica, a virtualization technology that makes it easier to run multiple operating systems simultaneously in separate partitions called virtual machines and Presidio, a technology to improve security.

New devellopment around MIT license.
I don't know how it is called anymore... MIT/X11/Expat licence. I have send this mail to opensource.org after browsing the GNU (in)compatible licenses AT http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses
"The MIT license listed on the OSI website (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php) is an identical match to the expat license (http://www.jclark.com/xml/copying.txt). While the MIT license is more closely linked to the very similar X11 license (http://www.x.org/Downloads_terms.html) or MIT X Window System License. What is up with the freedom the OSI takes in naming its approved licenses? Or do i misunderstand and confuse the licenses myself?"
I guess OSI is correct but then again... that means "MIT license" != "MIT X Window System License" (or X11). Maybe the creation of the slightly different version was a later devellopment and became the MIT/Expat License?
" though about modding your comment down. But then I though it would be better to actually respond to what you posted. Why? I guess I just have a certain sympathy for trolls today-trolls deserve attention too!
>>E always was and still is a gross hack. Who is going to usethis crappy wm when the future of the linux desktop lies on OpenGL ? The software/fake/hack-alike drop shadows look nice in E17 but all they are is a hack. I am not impressed by the architecture, or the complete lack of opengl support and disregard as to the direction the linux desktop is taking.<<
I take it from your post that you have actually never used any of the E17 stuff no? Because if you had you would know that E17 offers the use of opengl rendering for all of it's rendering operations. Aside from the fact the E17 includes the fastest software rendering libraries to be found anywhere in *nix Land, which means those who don't have the good fortune to be running a opengl-supported video card still have access to the latest next-gen graphics, which is the hallmark of all things E, E is capabale of fully utilizing opengl supported hardware for all rendering.
As to being a hack....hmmm... Well the refactoring work which has gone into E17 over the past 3 years makes me think that 'hack' is somewhat compleltely offbase. None of the other existing wm/dm's have had such excruciating attention paid to every aspect of the API which has formed the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries. In fact many people have been quite frequently discouraged by the apparent glacial rate of progress happeing in E17- if Rasterman and co. had been content to simply make a 'hack' in E17 everyone would have had something usable, in a hackish kind of way, 2 and 1/2 years ago. But we are all patiently waiting for E17 as a wm to fully materialize-the EFL libraries, when E17 is production, will probably be some of the most mature libraries ever introduced with the introduction of new new wm/dm.
'Hack' is a word which describe a quick 'fix' to a problem, one which generally does not fully address a problem, one that often only addresses the symptoms, but one which enables someone to overcome a problem or limitation quickly and cheaply- albeit the price to be paid is architectural- and this price is usually much larger in the long run. Of course 'hack' hqas many other connotations, but I imagine most software hackers can ressonate with what I just impromptu wrote.
If you had followed E17, as a project, since it first began-even from the sidelines (like me!), you would know that Rasterman and co. have scrapped their work and started afresh multiple times over the last 3 years. I played around with E17 first about 2 years ago and everysthing has changed so much in intervening time that there is only superficial similiarity between E177 circa 2003 and what Rasterman is now developing. If one was to have a legit critique against Rastermans approach it would be to take fault with his penchant for perfectionism-something which one normally does not associate with 'hacks'. The relentless perfectionism has led to whole sale dumping of already developed software and continuous rewrites in a quest for some kind of elusive holy-grail of kick-ass X11 graphics.
Oh and if you ever manage to write anything as powerful and quick as imlib, which is pretty much the definition of software rendering in *nix land, please come back and post details about your project. I 'am sure we would all love to see your contributions. ;)
Where I will give you a little bit of credit is your pointing to the fact that E17 has made it's desgin decisions completely independent of the developments ongoing within the xorg community and the new libraries(cairo /glitz /libpixman etc.) being developed at freedesktop.org. This has triggered some concerns for me personally, because I really would like to see a set of technologies become more widely adopted amongst all of the desktop environments and I sometimes feel discouraged when the talent pool is seemingly watered down by each and everyone doing their own damned thing. But then again Rasterman and co. are offering EFL to the entire development community-look this is what we got, this is what it can do, please consider using it in your quest for next-gen graphics.
From this vantage point I cannot fault Rasterman and co. for going the route they have gone. In fact I have always wondered how X would be if that had been Rastermans project the entire time ;) The funny thing is E17 can do *today*, in it's current pre-alpha state, what gtk+/cairo/glitz/Xegl or Qt/arthur promises to do in 1-2 years-and all this without a fundamental re-architecting of the entire X platform. I suspect E17 will be released sometime in the next 12-18 months (Rasterman feel free to suprise and release it sooner ! ;)) And I honestly hope that the other wm/dm developers make liberal use of the painstaking hardwork that went into creating the EFL. They would be foolish not to do so."
XEN for Windows addicts.
http://xen.terrabox.com/index.php/democd%201.2%20README%20-%20about "The Windows XP port is nearly finished. It's running user space applications and is generally in pretty good shape thanks to some hard work by the team over the summer. Of course, there are issues with releasing this code to others. We should be able to release the source and binaries to anyone that has signed the Microsoft academic source license, which these days has very reasonable terms. We are in discussions with Microsoft about the possibility of being able to make binary releases to a larger user community. Obviously, there are issues with product activation in this environment which need to be thought through."
http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenFaq#head-bb579ddda3999d87064a36b7d847fad8e39440ae "1.4. Does Xen support Microsoft Windows? Unfortunately we do not currently support Windows; the paravirtualized approach we use to get such high performance has not been usable directly for Windows to date. However recently announced hardware support from Intel and AMD will allow us to transparently support Windows XP & 2003 Server in the near future. We are working on this and intend to have support available by the time the new processors are available."
"Intel Corp., AMD's biggest rival, has already launched a dual-core version of its Pentium processor. It began shipping the chip, called the Pentium Extreme Edition 840 (Pentium EE), in April, and a second chip, called the Pentium D, is due later this month."
Naturally occurring standards
The phrase "de facto standard" can denote anything from proprietary tyranny to a healthy, vibrant, market. What makes a standard viable without the formal blessing of a standards organization? Should you use such informal standards, or ignore them?

Grr... searching for non-viral license like LGPL but for programs. Got to MPL but even that sucks. And the concept of a non-viral license does not seem to be such a good idea either!
I want people to have complete freedom over a programm and make mony, re-distribute, change, make derivatives, include, etc... I don't want to give the ability to re-license, take away credits and let them mask that free software is used or included!
-- UPDATE -- MIT it is!
"Mozilla can include LGPL code (but not GPL code) so that shouldn't be an important factor in your decision.
LGPL would require anyone who changes your library to publish their changes, MPL would allow some kinds of proprietary changes. In both cases someone could use the library from proprietary code so the end result could be the same.
The two licenses handle patent/IP issues differently if that's an issue for you."
You are clearly a troll, but your post is a good springboard for two important memes.
1. GPL is a vaccine against proprietary vendor lock-in. It ensures that once code has been released for public use, it is not extinguished by proprietary extensions that render the original obsolete. This benefits all players, from free software purveyors to large commercial companies. Ask IBM. 2. The BSD license allows you to do whatever you like, for good or for ill. It is, as my .sig points out, a nonviral guarantee of *your* freedom to restrict the freedoms of everyone else. In this way, it's more like a freedom annhilator than a freedom virus.
The more people who are vaccinated against a contagious disease, the fewer people will catch it. GPL is definitely a vaccine rather than a virus."
"RE: GPL==Vaccine, GPL!=Virus
You are forced with a choice between full rights for whoever takes the extension proprietary or "all rights except the right to restrict the rights of others" for everyone. Let's be generous and assume that the right to restrict the rights for others is 99% of the value of the set of rights. Let's set the value of the rights at one dollar, and restrict ourselves to the U.S. Population, which we'll estimate at 240,000,000.
The party who gets the full rights gets $0.99 and everyone else gets nothing, for a total of $0.99 worth of rights.
In a GPL world, everyone (including the party who wanted to take it proprietary) gets $.01 worth of rights. By my calculations, this comes to $2,400,000.00 worth of rights distributed, at one penny per person worth of rights preserved.
See where I'm going with this? In fact, I believe I've just gone there. QED baby, QED. :)"
According to sources, Apple earlier today declared build 8A428 of Tiger 'gold master,' the final development stage. Companies typically release the 'GM' candidate to manfuacturing for duplication and packaging.
Earlier this week, Apple release a "FC" (final candidate) build to developers and other partners to test the operating system for any last minute "showstoppers."
Something you know: (password, PIN, mothers maiden name, etc.) This is the one we are all familiar with, you know your password and theoretically, no one else does, so by giving your password you can verify that you are who you say you are.
Something you have: (smart card, RSA token, dongle, etc.) This is where there is something you posess that is somehow keyed to you and uniquely yours. Think hotel key. The way you tell your hotel room that you are the resident of that room is by presenting something you have, your hotel key. Theoretically, no one else would have that key, so it suffices to verify who you are.
Something you are: (finger print, voice print, iris, retina, facial structure, hand structure, etc.) This is the wide world of biometrics. Again, pretty simple, your fingerprint is uniquely yours, and by presenting it, you can verify that you are who you say you are.
Insecure: Linux has three role-based security mechanisms and mandatory access controls (SE-Linux is just the one included), three ACL mechanisms (Trustees, POSIX ACLs and SGI's XFS security mechanisms), an EAL4 rating with an EAL5 possibly underway, USB or dongle system locking, support for cryptographic and "trusted" hardware, support for IPSec, a very impressive packet filtering system (layers 2, 3 and 7), capabilities and that's just the kernel. If you want to include the rest of the system, you've stack guards, SSL/TLS, Kerberos 5, rootkit detectors, binary modification detectors, TCP wrappers, bayesian intrusion detection systems, root jails, virtualization (which allows you to compartmentalize, and therefore can be used for security), MD5 passwords for the shadow suite, one-time password systems, public key encryption and a host of validation & security auditing tools (TARA, SARA, NMap, Nessus, BASS, etc)
Unscalable: The Linux kernel supports "pure" SMP systems that are respectably large. For larger system, bproc and OpenMOSIX permit scaling up to about 65534 nodes with each node taking perhaps 64 processors. To my way of thinking, that's pretty damn scalable. Actually, as bproc and OpenMOSIX use different migration systems, it may be possible to build a grid of grids, where you've a Beowulf cluster of MOSIX clusters of 64-way SMP nodes. This gives you a theoretical capacity of 274,861,129,984 processors. Microsoft is planning to add clustering, in the future. Let me know when it compares. Linux also supports NUMA, Distributed Shared Memory, Active Ports/Active Messages, gigabit MPI, high-speed network filesystems (Lustre!) abd other key components for scaling. See "first few entries in top 500 supercomputers" for further information.
Prone to forking: There are many Linux distributions, tailored to people's needs, but only one real "kernel". There are many Windows kernels (the 3.x tree, the 9x tree, the NT tree, the 200x tree, Windows CE, Longhorn) but the distributions are basically the same components. Who is creating more of a fork - the tailor who makes clothes that fit from standard material, or the tailor who uses the closest material to hand, regardless of what it is?
