I agree with the previous comment about asking your company for permission to release the fixes. But if that is not practical, it's easy enough for you to write up a description of the bug and was was needed to resolve it and then circulate this information. If someone else then resolves it by writing their own code, you are safe from copyright liability.
That being said, watch out for NDAs that you may have signed - be cautious if you think someone else may gain a competitive advantage over your former company if you release this information.
The PoE splitters you see on Ebay do not work on standard 802.1af PoE. The standard supplies -48v (I think the newer one is -56v). It is not 12v. While you still could build a DC power supply to provide the 5v that USB requires, it's not as easy as hooking up a few wires.
This is not a Bring Your Own Device policy, as you are not bringing your device.
This is a you buy yourself a device according to our standards policy. It's time to say no and either use a computer that they provide, or move on to a new contract.
SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.
In cases where a project is no longer actively being maintained, SourceForge has in some cases established a mirror of releases that are hosted elsewhere. This was done for GIMP-Win.
Editor's note: Gimp is actively being maintained and the definition of "mirror" is quite misleading here as a modified binary is no longer a verbatim copy. Download statistics for Gimp on Windows show SourceForge as offering over 1,000 downloads per day of the Gimp software. In an official response to this incident, the official Gimp project team reminds users to use official download methods. Slashdotters may remember the last time news like this surfaced (2013) when the Gimp team decided to move downloads from SourceForge to their own FTP service.
Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for Windows via its official Downloads page.
Note: SourceForge and Slashdot share a corporate parent.
In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.
