| Usenet is a worldwide distributed Internet 
| discussion system. It was founded in 1980 to

| predates forums, blogs, instant messaging 
| and P2P networks.

| When you work with large amounts of photos, 
| it can get tiresome to have to manually 
| manage the file and directory structures. To

| managers such as Picasa, DigiKam, and 
| iPhoto. There are several options for Linux,

Presenting squid-deb-proxy! Speed up your update downloads!

,----[ Quote ]
| Squid-deb-proxy is a new package for Ubuntu 
| 10.04, and it's designed to make your life 
| easier and allow faster updates if you 
| manage more than one Ubuntu machine. 
| Conceptually, squid-deb-proxy consists of 
| two pieces, a client and a server. The 
| server package is "squid-deb-proxy" and the 
| client package is "squid-deb-proxy-client". 
| The "squid-deb-proxy" server package is 
| basically a squid caching server, with an 
| out-of-the box configuration that allows it 
| to cache .deb packages and make them 
| accessible to the local area network. The 
| "squid-deb-proxy-client" package is 
| basically an include file to your standard 
| apt configuration that makes apt aware of 
| the squid-deb-proxy.


Redshift Keeps Your Eyes Sharp & Helps You Sleep [Linux]

,----[ Quote ]
| If you spend a lot of time looking at your 
| computer â and if you read this blog Iâm 
| betting you do â you might notice that after 
| a while your eyes start to hurt, and that 
| you have trouble going to sleep at night. 
| Thereâs a good reason for this: your 
| computer screen is essentially a lightbulb, 
| and youâre looking straight into it for 
| hours at a time.
| [...]
| Linux users, it seems, were left out of the 
| fun: F.lux does not work on Linux. Thatâs 
| where Redshift comes in. The program is 
| currently in development, and currently 
| requires the user to have no fear of the 
| command line, but donât worry: itâs not too 
| hard to use.


Four console document converters

,----[ Quote ]
| I have never gotten a resume in OpenOffice 
| format, but when I do, I shall hire that 
| person on the spot. Provided I can read 
| their resume of course, and in that case 
| Iâll probably rely on o3read. Iâve used 
| o3read plenty of times in the past and it 
| always pleases me to see it spin quickly 
| through a document, spitting out the good 
| stuff and tossing the bad stuff down 
| /dev/null. Or wherever it goes.


Scenari â A powerful application to create and publish documents

,----[ Quote ]
| This application is most probably going to 
| be of interest to people working in the 
| education field, as I am, but not only.
| I discovered scenari when one of the 
| developers came for a 3 days workshop at my 
| university.
| I create resources and teach online and have 
| been so far doing very poorly regarding 
| online multimedia documents. Mainly out of 
| ignorance and poor taste for multimedia 
| techy stuff, I have given .pdf online and 
| that was about it..


Serve Up Your Music with Zeya

,----[ Quote ]
| Have you always wanted to set up your own 
| music station to stream your latest music 
| collection to your friends or colleagues? 
| Have you been thinking lately of setting up 
| an always-on music streaming server so that 
| you can just open up your web browser and 
| listen to your favorite tracks? A music 
| server is great in a dormitory, laboratory 
| or office where the file server can double 
| up as the music server! I will show you how 
| using Zeya.

,----[ Quote ]
| Millions of web users rely on PDF files 
| every day to consume a wide variety of text 
| and media content. To enable this, a number 
| of plug-ins exist today which allow users to 
| open PDF files inside their browsers.
