Thirteen months after Intel debuted its “Bay Trail” SoCs, we’re still seeing new boards based on it emerge, as in the case of this Aaeon COM Express module. Although Taiwan-based Aaeon pre-announced the “COM-BT” computer-on-module last October, as part of Intel’s big Bay Trail sytem-on-chip rollout, the module is just now becoming available for production shipments. It conforms to PICMG’s COM Express Type 6 “compact” form-factor specs, measuring 95 x 95mm, and offers a choice of 0 to 60°C or -40 to 85°C temperature operation.

There’s just one teeny-tiny little problem. For the last several years, Yahoo has been obtaining its search results from Bing, owned by Microsoft, with no indication this will change. I’m not exactly sure how the Microsoft/Yahoo deal works, but you can be sure that some money goes to Redmond each and every time a search is done via the web portal, something that many FOSS supporters might find unacceptable.

Alert readers will know that I'm working on a major revision to my popular Wicked Cool Shell Scripts book to come out later this year. Although most of the scripts in this now ten-year-old book still are current and valuable, a few definitely are obsolete or have been supplanted by new technology or utilities.

The man who in every sense sits at the nerve centre of SUSE Linux has no airs about him. At 38, Vojt?ch Pavlík is disarmingly frank and often seems a bit embarrassed to talk about his achievements, which are many and varied. He is every bit a nerd, but can be candid, though precise. As director of SUSE Labs, it would be no exaggeration to call him the company's kernel guru. Both recent innovations that have come from SUSE - patching a live kernel, technology called kGraft, and creating a means for booting openSUSE on machines locked down with secure boot, have been his babies.

For the past six years, I’ve been privileged to work among people who have dedicated their personal and professional lives to advancing the causes of fair, local, organic, and sustainable agriculture at the Rural Advancement Foundation International, a nonprofit organization based in Pittsboro, North Carolina. While my colleagues and I care deeply about how our food is grown, we care just as much about those who grow our food. Our mission is to cultivate markets, policies, and communities that sustain thriving, socially just, and environmentally sound family farms. We directly assist individual farmers who rely on our staff of experienced farm advocates, and we work at the local, national, and international levels for a more just and sustainable food system for all.

Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On OpenSUSE 13.2This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.

Docker has broken a record in the speed in which it moved from being a disruptive technology to a commodity. The speed of adoption and popularity of Docker brings with it lots of confusion. In this post I wanted to focus on a trend of commentary that has been gaining popularity that I’ve started to hear more often recently from users who just started using Docker: whether it makes sense to use OpenStack if they’ve already chosen to use Docker.
