A light list this week, but I’ve been on an island in Canada the past week. I can’t see much except water from there.
- Part of the reason I started this Digest was to document things that would otherwise remain buried on mailing lists. So I feel there’s a parallel between this and reporting on police scanners – not the same content, but the same intent.

- SSD Cache Accelerators work. This is not news to anyone who has used swapcache(8), which does just what these hardware products do – in software, free. Here’s where you can pat yourself on the back for being a DragonFly user. (via)
- Desktop 2.0 and the future of the networked operating system. This somewhat wandering article assumes having everything go online is a good thing.
