Should Enterprise IT Give Back To Open Source?

UnRDJ Re:But some software is more free than others (312 comments)

everyone who uses free software must give
back changes they make to the code, because that was the deal in the first place.

That's what my little GPL-firmly-believing voice says. Perhaps I'm not fervorish enough for the masses?

Regardless of how one might define "free," I like these stipulations and would release code under them. Call it derpaderpasource software if you want, I'd still feel the same way about the underlying meaning

The Low-Intensity, Brute-Force Zombies Are Back

UnRDJ Post your banlist (203 comments)

I get about 5 of these a day, on a relatively small site. I wrote a small shell script out of sheer boredom that parses hosts.deny and gives me country and hostname info. Here's the output from the past week or so. It seems to confirm that most of these are from public isps overseas.

Microsoft-Novell Relationship Hits the Skids

UnRDJ Re:OK, Let's have a big, hearty chorus, folks! (194 comments)

It's a shame really, I love SuSE as a distro. Yast is probably the most complete centralized gui based configuration tool for linux. Much better in that sense than ubuntu with gnome which is obsessively minimal and redhat who scatters random tools everywhere that all have varying levels of completeness, stability, and support.

$100 Linux Wall-Wart Now Available

UnRDJ Insidious thought (464 comments)

Hide one of these behind a desk somewhere in a computer lab, sneak a cable to the switch or through one of the workstations, and have it connect via rootkit to a remote server somewhere. Then connect to the server and do whatever naughty things you desire. If you were clever you could even disguise it as an AC adapter.

Why Use Virtual Memory In Modern Systems?

UnRDJ Re:You mean physical memory right :-) (983 comments)

Wouldn't it be more like "Why use swap space in modern systems?" then? Or where you trying to point out the fact that virtual memory references all physical memory and swap space, and therefore the title in that context sounds like "why use physical memory in modern systems?" I can't imagine that he was wondering why modern systems have physical RAM.
