Hash: SHA1

Company opens development airport traffic management software 

,----[ Quote ]
| The Swiss company Skysoft has started development of Albatross, a set of open 
| source applications for air traffic controllers. The project's website was 
| unveiled on 16 March.  
| The software will be published under a GNU Public Licence. The company has 
| not yet decided which version of the GPL will be used. 
| The Swiss specialist in air traffic management technology in June will unveil 
| its first open source application, to visualise radar data. This application 
| is based on the company's existing proprietary software. It will run on 
| GNU/Linux based computers, said Claude Levacher, responsible for marketing at 
| Skysoft.    


Sharing, Contributing... and Caching

| This story is part bug hunt, part open-source love-story. The bug was a 
| particularly gnarly, beautiful little bug and I'm going to try to convey some 
| of that to you. But the other half of the story is really the thing here; The 
| Guardian is serious about engaging with the wider technology community - 
| while we work hard to open out our data to the world at large, we also 
| participate by speaking at conferences, sponsoring events, and sometimes in 
| the simplest way of all; contributing code and fixes for the Open Source 
| software that we use.

Computer glitch causes delays at LAX

| Weary international passengers were stuck at Los Angeles International
| Airport for several hours, unable to set foot in the United States after a
| computer failure prevented customs officials from screening arrivals.  
| Over 20,000 international passengers, both Americans and foreigners, sat in
| four airport terminals and in 60 planes starting about 2 p.m. on Saturday,
| when the computer system broke down, said Los Angeles World Airports
| spokesman Paul Haney.
