Today is one of those dates that’s fun to type. Anyway!
- KernelTrap has a summarization of the recent Tux3/Hammer discussion between Matthew Dillon and Daniel Phillips. Read for the summary, stay for the mind-boggling filesystem design detail.
- Philip Paeps has a note on his blog on how to use one-time passwords, good for when you are traveling and know you won’t be connecting from secure locations. He does it on FreeBSD, but it works on DragonFly too.Â (update: site seems to be down.Â Darn.Â Look at opiepasswd(1) in the meantime.)
- This article titled “Copyright, Fraud and Window Taxes (No, not that Windows)” talks about how people generally don’t mind copying; what makes them mad is attribution. e.g. Someone copying your works doesn’t bother people unless the copier claims the work is his or her own. This is not an unfamiliar concept, folks. (via)
