+ - Multi-threaded SSH/SCP->

Submitted by neo
neo writes: Chris Rapier has presented a paper describing how to dramatically increase the speed of SCP networks. It appears that because SCP relies on a single thread in SSH, the crypto can sometimes be the bottleneck instead of the wire speed. Their new implementation (HPN-SSH) takes advantage of multi-threaded capable systems dramatically increasing the speed of securely copying files. They are currently looking for potential users with very high bandwidth to test the upper limits of the system.

Submitted by
neo writes: "Drupal is a free software package that allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage and organize a wide variety of content on a website. The newest version cleans up the administration interface and the user community support is huge. It you're looking for an open, LAMP solution, Drupal is a great find and a great time to try it out. It's greatest strength is it's use of "taxonomy" to tag content for extremely flexible sorting and manipulation of content."
It's funny.  Laugh.

+ - Quit Your Job Day - the international holiday

Submitted by
neo writes: "Looks like it's time to quit your job! From the website:
The goal of Quit Your Job Day is to reverse the advantage perpetuated by an elitist class who profit from your actions without making any personal investment in you as an individual. If you don't know who profits from your hard work, I assure you that they care very little about you."

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
