The FreeBSD Foundation Is Soliciting Project Proposals

MythicalMan I'm proud I gave them a hundred bucks! (58 comments)

I'm a busy software developer working for a big company, so I don't have much time to contribute for Open Source and open knowledge projects. Supporting the FreeBSD Foundation, Wikimedia and similar initiatives seems to be a good way to pay for their valuable work. I make a donation every year and invite all /. readers to do the same.

Thousands of Publicly Accessible Printers Searchable On Google

MythicalMan HP Printers don't run Oracle's (Sun) JVM (192 comments)

The article leads the reader to believe that the VM running on HP LaserJet printer is an old version of Sun's -- now Oracle -- JVM. That's no true. HP Printers run ChaiVM, a clean-room implementation written based on the published specification. Moreover HP has historically recommended their customers to NOT expose printers to the public Internet. The embedded web server is an administration tool, not a fully-fledged HTTP server, and was not designed to be used that way.

Disclaimer: Even though I work for HP and had access to the LJ firmware internals in the recent past, I'm NOT speaking on behalf of HP.

Why Use GTK+?

MythicalMan Is this a joke? (356 comments)

How can someone dare to call that poor advertising piece an "article"? There is no useful information in the text that can not be obtained at or after five minutes of web searching.

And they rated it "intermediate". Spare me the "low" ones...
