So you think Linux is hard do you? Please, I bet you can use Ubuntu with Unity with ease.

Nope, because the machine was used remotely (under my tv and used for my art repository). If it doesnt get to a working desktop remotely it is effectively dead. I am a developer but also an artist. On days when I have my art hat on I really can't be messing with software.

I've read code like this. I, ahem, may also have written code like this on occasion.

Now, if only people managed it properly, I'd be perfectly happy.
Summary:Black Duck Software and North Bridge's survey found open-source software in businesses everywhere, but few are managing it worth a darn.

I'm not really interested in cars at all, but still there is something about a DeLorean, even without the flux-capacitor.
The original DeLorean factory in Northern Ireland may be long gone but you can still buy a factory fresh example of the most iconic gull-winged doored car of all time. XCAR went to Houston to find out more.

And, I might add, I use NGINX myself for my web sites.
Summary:NGINX wants to become your web server -- whether you need a simple web page service or a complex web application delivery system.

nginx is my preferred static webserver. Although I'm (unfortunately) more inclined to use something like S3 for static content.

I see Dental Hygienist on the best jobs list, but mine is pretty grumpy most of the time.

Ironically, the apple was actually a banana by some biblical scholars. She gave him a banana could be real bible porno.

+Caleb Cushing I know the New star wars is considered Canon and old is Legend. Sucks for sure. I know Darth bane tried unlocking the secrets of immorality and failed. Revan is a sweet character for sure based off swkotor and tor series but mask could have been just a new thing. I guess we will wait and see

Introduction
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has been writing about technology and the business of technology since CP/M-80 was the cutting edge, PC operating system; 300bps was a fast Internet connection; WordStar was the state of the art word processor; and we liked it!

Steven was also the first writer to notice this little thing called the Web and he thought it just might be important some day. Who knew!? :-)
