I have never seen a bunch of Linux users get so excited over a bug in a development branch before.
Umm, sendmail's process is called 'sendmail', postfix has no process called 'smtpd'.
That sound you just heard in the distance? The puckering of a million Linux fanboys' butts.
The framers of the constitution could not possibly have anticipated a world with such a thing as this "murder".
A whole article on their CDN boxes and not one mention of the OS. I'm surprised. It's FreeBSD.
The OS doing the heavy lifting (serving the actual video, up to 1/3 of the traffic on the net during peak hours) is FreeBSD.
Ummm, that's from March 2008. That's over five and a half years ago.
I can't imagine by what state of mental confusion would lead you to that conclusion, but it must be terrifying and uncomfortable.
I wonder how they will track non-paternity. People with random fathers pop up everywhere in studies like this, at a rate of something like 10-15%.
Any company that I've ever worked for that had money to spend did tape backups and stored them in a vault offsite. Tapes get verified as they're written, and don't have parts that fail like hard drives do. They have a 30-year shelf life, and you'll always be able to find a way to read them in the future. Go to ebay, buy a used LTO3 or LTO4 drive, (400GB and 800GB uncompressed, respectively). Tapes are about $25/ea for LTO3. Then put a backup somewhere safe.
Pretty sure that rock and roll didn't make guys unable to get laid.
Open source? Check. Multi-user? Check. Secure? Only as secure as the box it's on, and the boxes that people use to access it, just like everything else. Linux based? Check.
Gnupg and a flat text file.
I moved from Linux to FreeBSD on the desktop something like 10 years ago. The same arguments apply as used to apply in the Linux vs. Windows debate. FreeBSD is more secure than Linux (but is that because it's less of a target?) Linux has better Flash support (with its attendant security holes.) FreeBSD has the ports system and ZFS though, and the system is cleaner, better integrated, easier to maintain, and I simply like it better. Use whatever OS you want for whatever you use it for. For me FreeBSD beats Linux any day.
You can already do this with ZFS. It's called L2ARC.
It's not the fax machine that dies hard, it's the universe of paper documents that dies hard. What simpler, more reliable, more secure, and more point-to-point mechanism is there for transferring a piece of paper from one place to another?
