It’s been a while since I started to talk to people in the financial services ecosystem about our approach towards open source. At first, most of them thinking we were either bold, ahead of our time, or mad would listen to our story but would not really comment: "Let’s see where it goes" or "good luck with your brave intentions." Only after we started to show progress with the delivery of the FinTP Project, did people start to look seriously at what we were doing. That's when FinTP started to stir up interest and we got many inquiries about the project.I’ve already shared the most common questions, like: Why do we do it? Why should we join?

The ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T is a Haswell-based Intel ultrabook that I have found to be quite interesting and will be carrying out a large number of Linux tests (and Windows 8.1 vs. Linux benchmarks) from this laptop that sports Intel Iris Graphics 5100, dual SSDs, and other impressive features.
TinyKeep is an upcoming action RPG with a heavy focus on smart monster AI. We all hate dumb AI in games right? I hope their AI is as smart as they make it out to be!

“Why we don’t all switch to Diaspora I will never understand.”My friend Ross made this remark on Facebook Thursday as introduction to a link to a petition by Demand Progress, a progressive political action site. The petition addresses Facebook and privacy issues, making some rather disturbing accusations. Although the text is short on siting sources, the accusations still ring true. The claim is that every time something is typed into a comment box but then not posted, Facebook keeps a record.

Indeed, ever since Snowden provided reporters with a trove of top secret documents, we've been subjected to all sorts of NSA word games. And the word "collect" has a very special definition, according to the Department of Defense (DoD). A 1982 procedures manual says: "information shall be considered as 'collected' only when it has been received for use by an employee of a DoD intelligence component in the course of his official duties." And "data acquired by electronic means is 'collected' only when it has been processed into intelligible form."

In the world of mail servers, MailScanner is one of the best open source software for virus scanning and spam detection. MailScanner relies on pre-installed anti-virus and anti-spam software to check incoming and outgoing emails for malicious content or patterns of spamming. This makes sure that the mail server does not participate in the distribution of malware and unsolicited spam emails. It also helps preventing the mail server IP from becoming blacklisted, keeping the mail server records clean. This tutorial will focus on setting up MailScanner along with Clam Antivirus and SpamAssassin in a CentOS system. The procedure should work on RHEL as well.
Consistency—a necessity when it comes to any large-scale, open source project. Sharing source code and libraries between the different components of OpenStack is critical to its rapid evolution and fast-paced development. The Oslo program is what holds it all together and brings consistency to OpenStack. We wanted to learn more about Oslo and what is does for OpenStack. So we asked the program lead to share his thoughts.
