wifi sm?

wifi smwifi sm at //unbehagen. WiFi-SM is an Internet connected wireless device that you can fix on any part of your body. It automatically detects the information from approximately 4,500 news sources worldwide updated continuously and analyses them looking for specific keywords such as death, kill, murder, torture, rape, war, virus etc.. Each time the text of the news contains one of these keywords, your WiFi-SM device is activated through the WiFi network and provides you with an electric impulse. This impulse is calibrated so that you can feel a certain amount of pain, but is completely safe.

mo gnu tco

found yet another rather good article about tco reduction when choosing linux at //ibm. yes, i am in making bizz cases for switching ;-)

while we are mentioning linux and ibm, their new commercial absolutely rocks, see //does he have a name"?.
note that they dont have any m$ windows media listed, though //this site does...?

the //transcript is good too: "Res publica non dominetur"

wheel the mainframes out of there

via /. but real funny; howto //steal some mainframes with confidential information on it.

(black) out windows

if //this is true, every IT manager for a plant should get a linux distro or a bullit, either way bite it! cause if the black out was really due to a bad product and a bad sysop, redmond is in *real* trouble, SOBIG.f trouble it will MSBLAST them right out of the business... (wishfull thinking)

cygwin, power to the desktop

gimpwhy o why.. why didnt i do this before. i installed //cygwin on my windows desktop, added some libs and have the power of linux on my work pc (yes, it is dual boot but i *need* m$ for my work, dont ask..). that was one step towards CLI power. than I read //using remote apps from cygwin and started using X from my small pentium 199 webserver/dns/firewall/databaseserver/dhcp server/etc..

now i can use //the best draw prog from my linux box on my wifi powered laptop, having a good load on both systems! why didnt i do this before, now i can use my X stuff from my laptop as well. xbill! all legal, all GPLicenced software (except my laptop OS Smiling ) without too much trouble.
