Submission + - Massive Disruption Of PayPal Subscription Service

hausmasta writes: "Since August 30, there are massive problems with PayPal subscriptions. The atomatic renewal of subscriptions stopped that day, causing headaches for lots of web site owners that rely on this kind of revenue. The problem is global, as this thread in the PayPal Developer Community shows. PayPal hasn't shown any reaction yet, so it is unclear whether they are working on it or even, if they are aware of the problem.

Submission + - The Perfect Desktop - Debian Etch (Debian 4.0)

hausmasta writes: "With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. In this tutorial I will show people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Debian Etch in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop, i.e. that has all software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that runs also on older hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
