The Latest Fad: Open Source?

Posted 07-21-2009 at 03:13 PM by pereb

Im sure it comes as no surprise that Im a huge fan of open source development, as Im sure most of you on here are. Ive never really understood the mindset of, We want you to buy and use our software, and youre able to look at it far more objectively than we can much of the time, but we absolutely do NOT want you to be able to implement your potentially ground-breaking ideas into our software! And well fix our own bugs, on our own time, thank you very much!

Preplogic

Posted 09-16-2009 at 08:13 AM by lnarea

Does anyone have experience with Preplogic for A+? I'm looking for a certification training company to help me train for my A+ certification. I have heard good things about Preplogic as far as their PMP training from other reviews but I don't know anything about their A+ training. Training is always expensive and I just want to make sure I'm putting my money to a good use. Does anyone have any experience with Preplogic and their A+ program that can help me out?

I work as a level...

Restraining the madness: Python + SSH + pymssql = happy DBA

I routinely get requests from management like "I need a list of the urls and the sizes of databases for our <product_name> sites!" This, I can tell you, is NOT something I want to figure out by hand (not with 300 production databases and a slew of training, demo, test, etc... databases as well). No, there is a better, more relaxed way...a way that includes plenty of time for me to check my e-mail, go get a cup of coffee, and chat with my co-workers...

A bit of architectural...

Google Wave vs. Raindrop

Posted 11-04-2009 at 08:55 AM by lnarea

Google would have us believe that Wave was the solution to all of our social networking needs. However as the beta invites started going out, people began to realize that it was nothing of the sort. It's just not ready to replace facebook, twitter and the others. Its not even ready to replace basic e-mail. If you ask me, it's just a solution waiting for a problem. Is Google ahead of the times or just falling out of touch?



Okay, so enter Mozilla Raindrop. First thing...

Book Collection

Updated 10-26-2013 at 09:26 PM by rocket357 (Update books I own)

I've been busy assembling a good library of computing books (stuff that directly interests me, of course...so you won't find Java or such in this list), and I would like to get some input (in the event I've overlooked critical "must-have" books). I don't own all of these (yet), but I've been buying them left and right as I can afford it (I usually buy one or two each payperiod, used on Amazon...as long as the book is readable and not too banged up, I'm game). The (not-yet-complete) list...
