1976 was a good year for text editors. At MIT, Richard Stallman and Guy Steele wrote the first version of Emacs. And over at Berkeley, Bill Joy wrote vi. It’s reductionist to say that these two editors were each built around one big idea, but what the hell, let’s be reductionist. Because what stands out in 2014, looking at modern editors like Sublime Text and Atom, is how Emacs’ big idea has been thoroughly learned — and how vi’s big idea hasn’t.

In my last article, I looked at NumPY and some of its uses in numerical simulations. Although NumPY does provide some really robust building blocks, it is a bit lacking in more sophisticated tools. SciPY is one of the many Python modules that build on NumPY's.

The Heartbleed bug has cast a bright and not entirely flattering light on the open-source movement's incentive model. When a crucial and ubiquitous piece of security code like OpenSSL - left vulnerable for two years by the Heartbleed flaw - can be accessed by all the world's programming muscle, but only has one full-time developer and generates less than $2,000 in donations a year, clearly something is amiss.

The open-source OpenSSL cryptographic library is being patched for a pair of security flaws, one of which has been in the code for at least four years.OpenSSL, of course, is the source of the now infamous Heartbleed vulnerability, first disclosed on April 7. While Heartbleed has had a wide-ranging impact that has left hundreds of millions of users vulnerable, the newly patched issues are not quite as dramatic.

When I walked into Carroll Hall, for a moment I felt like I was back in college... and at the World’s Best Slumber Party. There were tables full of salty snacks, stacks of sleeping bags, and the chatter of excited young women. But, unlike the sleepovers of my youth, talk was about Python, HTML, and Ruby. These were young women interested in learning to code.

For years now, every time the net neutrality debate starts getting really confusing, Tim Lee comes along and puts it all into useful perspective. Six years ago, there was his exceptionally useful position paper on net neutrality for the Cato Institute. A couple years ago, he wrote another great piece for National Affairs magazine that deftly explained why the internet wasn't competitive and why that's a problem. Now working for Vox, he's put together a great piece that explains the technical difference between the interconnection fights and the net neutrality battle -- but also explains how the end result is basically the same.

Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is a versatile disk management system that can easily be used in Linux or similar operating systems. traditional partitions are created in fixed sizes, and resizing them is a tedious process. On the other hand, LVM creates and manages "logical" volumes off of physical hard disks, and provides administrators the flexibility […]Continue reading...The post How to use LVM in Linux appeared first on Xmodulo.Related FAQs:How to create a Linux LVM partitionHow to build a network attached storage (NAS) server with OpenfilerHow to run fdisk in non-interactive batch modeHow to create an encrypted disk partition on LinuxHow to change a XenServer’s local storage repository from LVM to EXT

DRM and the laws that back it up actively undermine our computer security. On this Day Against DRM, the first one since we learned about the US government’s efforts to sabotage the integrity of our cryptography and security technology, it's more important than ever to consider how the unintended consequences of copyright enforcement make us all less safe.

I do a lot of work on open source, but my most valuable contributions haven't been code. Writing a patch is the easiest part of open source. The truly hard stuff is all of the rest: bug trackers, mailing lists, documentation, and other management tasks. Here's some things I've learned along the way.
