Modeling/core v0.9pre11 released

    Object-Relational Bridge for python. Make your objects persistent in a
    RDBMS, just by designing how your classes map to an RDBMS schema,
    without having to write a single line of SQL! In this release, the
    constraint on to-many relationship for which an inverse to-one
    relationship had to be defined has been dropped. A caching mechanism is
    now available for models at runtime, improving the general performance
    of the core (refer to appendix A.1 in the User's Guide for details).
    This release also includes some bug fixes, including: the ability to
    fetch raw '?' and '*' in"like" qualifiers, RelationshipManipulation
    methods were misbehaving when manipulating sub-entities (inheritance
    issue). Manipulation of custom data types is now documented (see
    section 9). -- Sébastien. 

OpenRM Scene Graph 1.5.0 implements parallel rendering

    OpenRM is a 2D/3D Scene Graph rendering engine for Linux/Unix/Win32
    layered atop OpenGL. Supports stereoscopy, volume rendering, 2D/3D
    texture mapping, picking, LOD and view-dependent operations, text, and
    image-based data. New in OpenRM Scene Graph 1.5.0 is direct support for
    distributed memory parallel rendering when combined with Chromium
    (chromium.sourceforge.net). This significant work is intended to be
    used by developers who need the utmost in parallel application
    performance, and is designed to drive extremely high resolution tiled
    displays in a distributed memory environment. The "parallel OpenRM" is
    built to be completely independent of all parallel programming
    frameworks, so developers can choose MPI, PVM, etc. to build parallel
    applications and still benefit from a parallel scene graph. 

Druid 3.0 final released

    After a month of beta testing, the 3.0 release is finally out. This is

    section). All the docs have been moved from HTML to PDF to be printed
    and have been revised and improved. Druid is a tool that helps the
    dba/developer to handle database tables. Users can add/modify/delete
    database objects (fields, tables, etc...) using a GUI. When the db
    structure is complete, druid can generate the sql-script and docs in
    various formats.

India Chooses All-Electronic Voting

    MaximusTheGreat writes "While the U.S. debates the merits of e-voting,
    India has decided to have [0]all electronic polls in the next elections
    for its billion strong population. Though India has used e-voting
    partially in previous elections, it will be the first time a Lok Sabha
    (central parliament) election will be held in the country since 1952
    without the use of ballot papers. Election Commission plans to use
    about [1] 800,000 electronic voting machines. Also, taking note from
    India's experience, other commonwealth countries like Malaysia and
    Britain will be [2] sending representatives to India to see the use of

    Bainwol, former chief of staff to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill
    Frist, as chairman & CEO. He replaces Hilary Rosen, who left earlier

IBM Points Out SCO's GPL Software Distribution

    An anonymous reader writes "Cnet is reporting that [0]IBM has launched
    a counterstrike against SCO Group's attack on Linux users, arguing that
    SCO's demands for Unix license payments are undermined by its earlier
    shipment of an open-source Linux product." [1]JayJay.br points out a
    similar but more colorful article on The Register "in which SCO says
    that 'SCO-Caldera [2]does not own the copyrights to JFS (Journaling

What Is The Real Cost of Spam?

    [0]securitas writes "The NY Times has a nice feature about the
    [1]diverging estimates of the costs of spam ([2]Google). The estimates
    vary widely from $10 billion to $87 billion per year for American
    workers, and even more for global costs. Critics say that research
    firms' estimates vastly overstate the actual cost of spam. Public
    institutions like Indiana University have to be sensitive to the First
    Amendment rights of the spammers. And at companies like Nortel
    Networks, security architect Chris Lewis says that the real economic
    burden is the 10 to 15 percent - 5,000 to 10,000 messages a day - of
    the spam that still gets through, which costs the company about $1 in
    lost productivity per message. The costs can be much higher if a top
    executive is upset or mad about spam. "If someone in senior management
    gets spammed," Mr. Lewis said, "it could take 20 or 30 hours of
    everyone's time, up and down the chain." A chart of the [3]per user
    amount of spam and the time spent processing it, as well as the

The Failures Of Desktop Linux

    all. After an earlier, [1]very positive evaluation of SuSE Linux
    Desktop, ZDNet UK has carried out a more in-depth review, [2]running
    the system in a production environment for two weeks, and found it

New Directions In Music Tech At Siggraph

    Cyrrin writes "The 2003 Siggraph [0]conference is under way in San
    Diego, and the Emerging Technologies booth is showcasing several
    noteworthy projects in the field of human-computer interaction in music
    production. First, The Continuator system, from [1]Sony Computer
    Science Laboratory, Paris which learns in real-time the style of a
    performing pianist, taking into account chord structures, rhythm, and
    melody, and then renders a musical performance in a similar style. Next
    is [2]The Augmented Composer Project which uses real-time image
    processing to read the arrangement and orientation of symbolic cards on
    a table to allow a composer to assemble components of a musical phrase.
    Finally, those wizards at the [3]MIT Media Lab bring you Hyperscore, a
    visual composition program which is intended for childen to be able to
    easily create complex and fantastic music sequences. (And it's fun for
    adults too!) Hyperscore is part of the [4]Toy Symphony project and is
    available for download by going to the Musictoys->Hyperscore-> Showcase

Microsoft's Forgotten Mistakes

    Microsoft is sitting on, it's good to be reminded that they do fail. A
    lot. [1]This piece in Seattle Weekly points out some of the many
    failures -- from ActiMates Barney to Microsoft at Work to pending
    disasters in smartphones and interactive TV (despite recent PR-worthy
    announcements). But like most litter, the failures are swept under the
    rug in the hopes people don't remember that many 'new' Microsoft ideas
    are recycled from its own history." Of course, like any big company,
    Microsoft is not a monolith.

Essential .NET, Volume I

    [0]hmobius writes "In a world where developers are baying for
    customers' attentions, very few people can claim to command that of the
    developer. Their blogs may be the only clue to the higher level of
    thinking that they operate at, creating the answers to why and when
    code works in addition to the perennial how. Whether he likes it or
    not, Don Box is one such system-meister. He may dislike writing books,
    but when one comes out, people pay attention and read. His first foray
    into text, Essential COM, was the book to explain how COM worked, and
    his latest, Essential .NET, takes the .NET Framework’s Common Language
    Runtime (CLR), and does exactly the same." Read on for the rest of
    hmobius' review.

YogaCircle.net (New Yoga Slash Site)

    Well this should be a first. A Yoga base Slash site. Check it out, if
    you have any questions or comments let me know. Thanks for the code. 


    Yet another Slash site, Computer Science Daily News. Aims to be a
    resource for Computer Science professionals, researchers, students and
    instructors. Hopefully this fills a niche, computer science
    developments seem to be very decentralized, and hard to find. Slash
    seems to be working out nicely, though I'm still learning the ropes...

Slash on server running Livejournal?

    Maybe this is the wrong venue to ask in, and I'm sorry if it is, but
    this question has been nagging me for about the past week or so. I have
    a personal server running Slackware 8 with a custom-compiled Apache
    1.3.27 (with the appropriate mod_perl) and MySQL 4.0.13. This server is
    currently running the LiveJournal server code and works quite well at
    this. I'm interested in attempting to set up slash for personal use
    (the Livejournal code is running for personal use as well), and herein
    lies the question. Can slash be run on the same server in another
    VirtualHost without having a separate apache installation/process and
    doing some fancy trick with mod_rewrite? Or am I asking too much? I
    will be happy to provide any further info anyone needs through e-mail
    (the e-mail link above is NOT spam-armored at all). 

QubitNews is finally launched!

    debates, polls, forums, etc... Many aspects of your work that cannot
    appear in scientific journals may find a place here. The main feature
    of QubitNews is that it is dynamical: you are wellcome to participate
    and modify the look and feel of this site. You may become an anonymous
    user, site user or an Author. Visit the homepage and consult the
    documents About, FAQ, How-To and GettingStarted. It may be useful,
    helpful and a lot of fun. 

Tuxedo.org Now running Slashcode

    Tuxedo.org is now running Slashcode. I should have done this a couple
    of years ago... Most recent story is Linus Torvalds Comments on SCO
    Lawsuit and Linux. Hope you all enjoy the new site! --Chuck Peters 

Best hosting service for Slash?

    I'm going to be doing some "big things" with Slashcode but am
    interested in going through someone to set up Slashcode and the server,
    so that I can just right in and start building the site. What are the
    best hosting services out there? Will they set up Slash for me? What
    kinds of experiences have people had? 

Dissociated Press goes Slash

    After a bit of poking and prodding, I've converted Dissociated Press to
    Slashcode (2.2.6). Works great! 

So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish!

    All things come to an end and its been a wonderful ride. Today is my
    last day at OSDN and this will be the last thing I will be posting on
    Slashcode. It has been fun working on Slash for the last few years and
    I have enjoyed working with the Slash community (tf32, ACS, vladinator,
    ericdano, and many more that I am forgetting). On Monday I start work
    for MySQL so I will be a bit busy for a while but I expect you will
    still see Slash stuff coming from me in the future. I will continue to
    be in #slash for a while, and you can still always reach me via email.
    The best of luck with you and your sites, it has been great! 


    After much kicking and screaming, yet another Slash Site! The Spotted
    Rabbit with news and events for Sussex County NJ, and Orange County,
    NY. It still looks a lot like basic slash, but I'm new to this, and
    we're working on it! --Ken Hall 

Multiple Instances

    Please indulge a beginner. I currently have slashcode setup on a single
    domain with its own IP address (wwwntm.biz) for testing purposes. Here
    is my dilemma. I am setting up a community similar to yahoo/geocities.
    It will be www.newthoughtcommunity.net and the individual communities
    will be sub-domains of this domain ex;
    community1.newthoughtcommunity.net, community2.newthoughtcommunity.net
    etc Residents of the communities will be set up as users ex;
    http://community1.newthoughtcommunity.net/user2 etc. Directory is:
    /home /newthoughtcommunity /community1 /community2 I know that slash
    can be setup with virtual domains, but can sub domains have there own
    instance. I need each community to have their own slash. Also. When I
    set up a new instance of slash for a virtual domain, do I use the same
    database and administrator with a new virtual user when I run
    DBI::Password? Thank you for any help you can offer John --John Macuga
