Deluge â An Awesome But Unappreciated Cross-Platform BitTorrent Client

,----[ Quote ]
| By now, most MakeUseOf readers should know 
| all about BitTorrent, the most popular peer-
| to-peer technology on the web. Weâve talked 
| about the protocol more than once, and even 
| released the Big Book of Bittorrentâa great 
| place to start if you find bittorrent too 
| confusing for your use.
| There are thousands of BitTorrent clients on 
| the market; that is, thousands of 
| applications you can use to download files 
| using BitTorrent technology. If youâre 
| curious which BitTorrent program is the 
| best, everyone has their own favorite â but 
| today, weâre going to profile what I believe 
| is an underappreciated piece of software: 
| Deluge.


(+) Best of Both Worlds: Windows Genealogy Programs on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Luckily, most any of today's Linux 
| workstation products can run most any 
| Windows program, including all the common 
| genealogy programs (The Master Genealogist, 
| Legacy Family Tree, Ancestral Quest, Family 
| Tree Maker, etc.). Anyone who uses Linux 
| does not need to feel left out.
| Several Windows emulators or virtualization 
| products are available for Linux users. In 
| fact, WINE (which stands for "WINE Is Not an 
| Emulator) is very popular. WINE has the 
| advantage of running Windows programs 
| without purchasing a copy of Windows. WINE 
| is available free of charge at 
| http://www.winehq.org.

| The Gloobus team posted the following video

| i'd share it here as so many of you follow 
| the Gloobus project.


A marvelous comic book archive viewer

,----[ Quote ]
| Many of us enjoyed comic books in our teen 
| years. Some of us have never outgrown them. 
| While some people read an issue and toss it 
| (or put it in a polypropylene bag to sell in 
| 20 years), others like to keep their art 
| archived and online. To help manage such 
| collections, Bradley Swartout has created 
| CBViewer, a program that lets you view 
| compressed comic book archives.
