Security, Due Process and Convenience

    [0]teambpsi writes: "CNN is running an article about ISPs' concern over
    [1]having law enforcement present during a court-ordered search. Since
    we are an ISP, I can understand the concern, however, also being a
    privacy freak, I think it adds a certain weight to the decision of
    wether to file the search in the first place. It adds a certain levity.
    I'm not sure what percentage of these search warrants are unnecessary,
    but I think that having due process in place is important. Opinions?"

Sun Works to Converge Linux and Solaris

    [0]Jucius Maximus writes "A new change has appeared in Sun's strategy
    as [1]reported by CNET. Instead of dismissing Linux as inferior, it is
    now trying to integrate elements of Linux into Solaris for easier
    porting of applications. This looks like a step in the right direction
    for Linux acceptance in the professional server market."

Bulkregister Sues Verisign Over Marketing Campaign

    [0]zentec writes "An article at Datacenter wire indicates that
    [1]Bulkregister sued Verisign over their often confusing and pretty
    slimy mailing campaign. The campaign is (of course) targeted to domains
    registered somewhere other than Verisign. The mailings are nothing more
    than domain "slamming", and look like [2]renewal bills rather than a
    solicitation to renew with Verisign. What's particularily slimy is that
    the mailings are for renewals on domains either recently renewed with
    someone else, or for domains expiring between 120 and 180 days!
    Bulkregister is also seeking an immediate injunction against the
    mailings saying that they are an impediment to current contracts with
    their customers." There's also a [3]Reuters article, or see [4]our
    original story. Bulkregister has run [5]their own sleazy marketing
    campaign in the past, and [6]paid the price for it.

    thieves a story from CNET announces that [2]AOL's set-top box plans may
    not allow skipping ads. Broadcasters continue to be afraid of the PVR,
    admitedly with good reason for their current business model. As I point
    out in my essay on [3]the future of TV, PVRs and Advertising, TV ads
    are a terrible bargain for the user, paying us about $1.20 per hour of
    our attention, and something has to change. It's worth noting that they

bash programmable completion 20020514 (Default)

    Since v2.04, bash has allowed you to intelligently program and extend
    its standard completion behavior to achieve complex command lines with
    just a few keystrokes. Imagine typing ssh [Tab] and being able to
    complete on hosts from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts files. Or typing man 3
    str [Tab] and getting a list of all string handling functions in the
    UNIX manual. mount system: [Tab] would complete on all exported
    file-systems from the host called system, while make [Tab] would
    complete on all targets in Makefile. This project was conceived to
    produce programmable completion routines for the most common Linux/UNIX
    commands, reducing the amount of typing sysadmins and programmers need
    to do on a daily basis.

    files, can be set up as the queue in Qmail, and have virtual users'
    configuration files be found using the username/domain for the
    recipient. Multiple checks are available, and there open options on how
    to treat flagged email. There is logging to multiple entities,
    auto-expiration of flagged email, and scoring available so that
    multiple checks require matches that add up before blocking.

    scanned for viruses (through an external scanner). Additionally there
    is an interface for writing scripts to add features or modify frox's
    behavior, and examples are included to limit download file size and to
    transparently direct connections to specific hosts to mirror servers.
    The proxy is written with security in mind, and in the default setup
    runs as a non-root user in a chroot jail. 

gaim 0.58 (Default)

    case-insensitive matches, and automatic exclusion of non-text files. 

GLiv 1.5.2 (Default)

    GLiv is an OpenGL image viewer. Image loading is done through
    Gdk-pixbuf (standalone or bundled with GTK+-2), rendering is done via
    OpenGL, and the graphical user interface uses GTK+ with the GtkGLArea
    widget. If Gdk-pixbuf cannot load your image, it uses ImageMagick to
    convert it to PNG. GLiv is very fast and smooth at rotating, zooming,
    and panning if you have an OpenGL accelerated board.

jpegpixi 0.1 (Default)

    "Jpegpixi" is short for "JPEG pixel interpolator".
    It is a command-line utility which interpolates pixels in JFIF images
    (commonly refered to as "JPEG images"). This is useful to
    correct images from a digital camera with CCD defects. Jpegpixi is
    unique in that it tries to preserve the quality of the JFIF image as
    much as possible. Most graphics programs decode JFIF images when they
    are loaded, and re-encode them when they are saved, which results in an
    overall loss of quality. Jpegpixi, on the other hand, does not decode
    and re-encode the image, but manipulates the encoded image data,
    protecting the quality of the image as much as possible. 

JpGraph 1.6.3 (Stable)

    JpGraph is a OO Graph drawing library for PHP 4.0.2 and above.

    Framework-supported scripting language (such as Python or JavaScript),
    Velocity templates for layout, a repository abstraction layer, optional
    Velocity-parsed content, search engine friendly URLs, and more.

    of actions can be taken on messages depending on the outcome of
    results, including quarantine, deletion and/or notification messages. 

MailScanner 3.14-1 (Default)

    MailScanner is an Email virus scanner and spam tagger. It supports
    sendmail and Exim MTAs, and the Sophos, McAfee, F-Prot, F-Secure,
    CommandAV, InoculateIT, Inoculan 4.x, and Kaspersky anti-virus
    scanners. It supports SpamAssassin for highly successful spam
