Ask Slashdot: Can You Say Something Nice About Systemd?

La Camiseta Something nice (928 comments)

It's not on my FreeBSD servers, so it's got that going for it.

Ask Slashdot: What Web Platform For a Small Municipality?

La Camiseta Re:CMS (161 comments)

Take a look at Drupal and the different distributions that are available for download (pre-defined packages of modules and features known to work together). It looks like they have a distribution right up your alley in OpenPublic (openpublicapp.com).

AT&T Dropping Usenet Netnews; Low-Cost Alternatives?

La Camiseta My 2Â (345 comments)

I would recommend Easynews if you want a web interface to the binaries newsgroups. For retention Giganews can't be beat (>300 days at last count). Google Groups is great for regular text newsgroups.

Portables Without Cameras?

La Camiseta Re:Sounds like you've covered it pretty well (442 comments)

So they don't let you have cameras in a secure environment, but WiFi is OK (and don't give me that whole wpa/wpa2 is secure enough - if it's government or important enough to warrant security that high - then it's important enough to warrant some class-a espionage)? Sounds like our government to me.

How Do You Deal With Pirated Programs At Work?

La Camiseta Re:Software as a Service (958 comments)

You may also want to look at some free, but not foss solutions. I know that Sun's Java Communications Suite is freely available and offers pretty much everything that exchange offers, including a pretty ajax-enabled web interface and an Outlook plugin so that it works just as if it were an Exchange server.

And then there's the foss solutions like Zimbra, etc.

Best FOSS Active Directory Alternative?

La Camiseta Sun Java System Directory Server (409 comments)

It may not be opensourced yet, but Sun has released almost their entire enterprise stack for free for anyone to use, including their DSEE, with unlimited entries. It can synchronize with AD, and they have a good deployment planning guide for synchronizing with AD and there are guides all over the place regarding authenticating Windows off of LDAP servers.

Fast-Booting Text-Editor Operating System?

La Camiseta Use the best tool for the job (660 comments)

You mentioned that you don't want to wait too long for a computer to boot up to to jot down your idea. My recommendation would be to use what's worked for hundreds of years, a pen and paper - pens are fairly nondescript and a nice moleskine along with a decent fountain pen (you can get a decent one for $30-50 that should last as long as you take care of it) makes writing a sheer pleasure.
