  • Nickelodeon's Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide chronicles the wacky adventures of Ned Bigby (Devon Werkheiser) and his best friends Jennifer Mosely (Lindsey Shaw) better known as Moze, and Simon Nelson-Cook a.k.a., Cookie (Daniel Curtis Lee) at James K. Polk Middle School. Ned breaks the fourth wall to share tips and tricks on navigating middle school or junior high hurdles.

    Each 22-minute episode contained two 11-minute shorts, both of which deal with a subject about school life, each containing a primary plot and a secondary plot.

  • As noted above, processes can ignore, block, or catch all signals except SIGSTOP and SIGKILL. If a process catches a signal, it means that it includes code that will take appropriate action when the signal is received. If the signal is not caught by the process, the kernel will take default action for the signal.
  • You’re a big fan of Survivor, and like being dropped into an unfamiliar environment and having to figure out all over again how to do the things you need to survive
  • A good password has the problem of being difficult to remember. And sometimes you might need to get in to a system where the root password is long forgotten (or left with the system administrator before you).
    Luckily there are ways of getting access to systems without having the password. This is of course in a sense also a security risk. That's why you should always be aware that having unattended physical access to a computer system means the same as having root access to the operating system. Unless the information on a system is encrypted, it's only as save as the room it's in.
  • You have to read this paper! Microsoft – A History of Anticompetitive Behavior and Consumer Harm [PDF], and it's from the European Committee for Interoperable Systems, or ECIS. ECIS has written it in support of the EU Commission's recent preliminary findings, on January 15, 2009, that Microsoft violated antitrust law by tying IE to Windows.

    It is, to the best of my knowledge, the first time that the issue of Microsoft's patent threats against Linux have been framed in a context of anticompetitive conduct

  • This is a short tutorial on how to add a custom Google site search to the Firefox search bar. For illustration purposes, the example I will use is a Google search of (which is, in my opinion, one of the best resources for Ubuntu and Linux support). I am using Firefox 3.0 on Ubuntu, but the steps should be the same for any Linux distribution. The process is basically the same for other operating systems, but some variables may be slightly different (such as the location of the Mozilla configuration folder).
