Submission + - Oracle begins aggressively pursuing fees for the Java SE

rsilvergun writes: The Register reports that Oracle has begun aggressively pursuing fees for the Java SE product line.

Oracle bought Java with Sun Microsystems in 2010 but only now is its License Management Services (LMS) division chasing down people for payment, we are told by people familiar with the matter.

Oracle had previously sued Google for the use of Java in Android but had lost that case. While that case is being appealed it remains to be seen if the latest push to monetize Java is a response to that loss or part of a broader strategy on Oracle's part.

Submission + - Law firm offers H1B Visa Hiring How-To Guide (youtube.com)

Companies in the United States are required to seek qualified local labor before applying for and receiving an H1B Visa to hire abroad. Slashdotters have always suspected these shenanigans, but here we have documented proof. Have you experienced a job interview where you knew they didn't want to hire you? What recourse do we have in these situations?
Data Storage

Submission + - Simple data transfer for my Family?

rsilvergun writes: As the family tech, I'm often stuck transferring data from old to new computers. These days, the process can take hours, what with gigs of mp3s, avis and jpegs. What I want is disk imaging software that makes autorunning dvds that prompt to extract the image to a folder, and then prompt for each disk in the set. That way I can make them sort out the data instead of me. I've looked at solutions from Acronis, Runtime and even Norton, and every one of them is just too technical. What do /.'ers do when stuck with this chore?

rsilvergun writes: Director Uwe Boll, in a bid to silence critics, has taken 5 of them into the ring. This September five of Boll's critics agreed to enter the ring for the upcomming movie Postal. But what started as a pr stunt seems to have ended badly, with some contestants needing medical attention.
