Submission + - Data Centers Breathe Easier with Less Oxygen

danbert8 writes: PC World has an article about an interesting new idea for datacenter fire protection. What better protection is there than prevention? From the article:

Air is composed of about 21 percent oxygen, 78 percent nitrogen and 1 percent of other gases. Fire needs the oxygen to burn, and lower percentages of oxygen makes it more difficult or impossible for fire to start.

Submission + - Is GAIM doomed to beta forever?

danbert8 writes: "How long should a user be expected to wait for a final release for F/OSS software that is being actively developed? Or at least some progress updates?

I have been a GAIM user for years and 2.0 seemed like a breath of fresh air. But it has now gone through 5 betas in over a year. New features have been added, yet I find it no more stable now in beta 5 than it was in beta 2. Gaim's homepage http://gaim.sourceforge.net/ lists some news, and the new Planet Gaim http://gaim.sourceforge.net/planet/ has some additional insights, but neither has been posted on since November."
