One of those days (rant)

Posted 10-19-2014 at 08:50 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Ever have one of those days where you want to grab people, shake them within an inch of their lives, and scream in their face "WWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKE UUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPP!!"??

I'm having one of those days. I read a debate earlier where one side was arguing that RMS has saved us from proprietary control and all that jazz.

Really? It's 2014. 2004 wants its punchline back.

I challenge ANY of you to a simple task. I challenge you to fork a GPL project,...

Chrome OS: What could it mean for Linux?

Posted 07-17-2009 at 01:06 PM by pereb

Last week, Google put an end to the ongoing rumors and officially announced Chrome OS. Marketed as a solution for lower-end PCs and netbooks, Chrome OS is touted as running “within a new windowing system”. What’s interesting, though, is that it will run on top of a Linux kernel. Is Google’s Chrome OS project a step towards legitimizing (in the sense of marketing to the mass public) Linux?

When it comes to operating systems, the public perception is quite narrow. There's Windows,...

The Latest Fad: Open Source?

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

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I’m a huge fan of open source development, as I’m sure most of you on here are. I’ve never really understood the mindset of, “We want you to buy and use our software, and you’re 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 we’ll 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...
