The 'Adventure' In Self-Publishing an IT Book

data64 Downloading = reviewing book in book store (156 comments)

I have downloaded a lot of pdf and other files, only to delete them after 5 minutes because it was not what I was looking for or I did not like the style. Think of a download like someone picking up a book in a book store and looking through it. Sometimes it results in a sale, but usually not (at least in my case). One thing missing from comments is how good is the book that the author gave away for free. Can someone who has read it comment on this ? Just because a book has been written does not mean it automatically has to make money.

Apple Censors Consumer Report iPhone4 Discussions

data64 Re:Zapp Brannigan's Reporting Strategy (588 comments)

If I invite people to write on my car freely, and then selectively erase some of the stuff written to leave only the stuff I agree with, that's censorship.

It should be pointed out that according to that definition, deleting spam and obscene posts would also be considered censorship.

Serious Apache Exploit Discovered

data64 Re:Windows only (160 comments)

mod_isapi is a core module of the Apache package that implements the Internet Server extension API. The extension allows Apache to serve Internet Server extensions (ISAPI .dll modules) for Microsoft Windows based hosts.

So are you only vulnerable if you use ISAPI ? It does look like that module is enabled by default though. I wonder why ?
