The Scream Aliens Hear From the Earth

b1ufox Sound without Medium?? (223 comments)

Isn't it that sound cannot travel in vacuum? It needs a medium to travel. Is this some other kind of sound which travels without a medium? Or Is it that the summary of the article is not correct?

b1ufox writes "Well, many of us love Linux and its really good compatibility with a lot of hardware devices. Webcams are no exceptions.Imagine writing a device driver for an unsupported webcam.What would you do?

Meet Michel Xhaard, a 60 year old physician by profession who is responsible for writing single handedly writing drivers for 235 low cost USB webcams!!!.

And surprisingly he did so without any help from big corporations.All on his own as a hobby.

More about Michel and can be found here http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=39 291."

b1ufox writes "Distrowatch.com's weekly news reportedly brought into light Freespire and its tactics to increase its popularity in the Linux Distribution market swamped by likes of Ubuntu, Suse and Fedora.

The whole story on Disrtowatch can be read at http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20060904#f reespire.

From the news article —

Upon investigation, it turned out that both linspire.com and nvu.com had been deceivingly redirecting visitors to the Freespire page on DistroWatch and that the default home page of Firefox in the latest build of Freespire had also been set to the same page. As a result, Linspire has become the largest referrer of DistroWatch.com this month and the company has been responsible for a considerable number of extra hits on the Freespire page at DistroWatch."

b1ufox writes "Version Control systems are very important when it comes to working with more than one code forks at a time. It saves you time and effort plus avoids developers from working on the same code.

Subversion is a Free version control system which is not only powerful but also robust and secure.

Differences between Subversion and other existing version control systems like CVS are worth reading here http://www.szabgab.com/subversion_vs_xyz.html.

An elaborative and easy to understand HowTo is also available here http://polishlinux.org/apps/subversion-howto/ ,which gives some important features of svn,its usefulness and a complete description of how to use svn."
