Erfinder von E-Mail in München ausgezeichnet - news.ORF.atJeden Tag wird sie millionenfach versendet und hat die Menschheit damit ein wenig näher zusammengebracht: die E-Mail. Ihr Erfinder Raymond Samuel Tomlinson ist zum 40-jährigen Jubiläum der elektronischen Nachricht heute in München mit dem Kulturpreis der Eduard-Rhein-Stiftung geehrt worden. Der Anlass: 1971, also genau vor 40 Jahren, wurde die erste elektronische Post von Tomlinson verschickt. Vor vier Jahrzehnten legte der US-Amerikaner Tomlinson den Grundstein für die heute alltägliche Form der Kommunikation. Damals schickte er die erste elektronische Post an einen Computer im Nachbarzimmer. Dafür entwickelte Tomlinson ein eindeutiges Adressformat, das ein unscheinbares Zeichen enthält: das @. Es trennte schon damals den Benutzernamen vom Namen des Rechners.
Learn Linux, 302 (Mixed environments): InternationalizationIf you work in a mixed environment in which non-English characters are used, you need to understand character codes and code pages as they relate to your locale. You also need to understand Linux and Windows environments differ when interpreting name spaces. Although Samba supports internationalization, if you work with older Windows clients , Samba 2.x versions, or otherwise need to use a specific character set other than Unicode, you’ll need to do a bit of configuration tuning. Depending upon the environment’s locale in use, building and patching conversion libraries may also be necessary. In this article, learn how to handle internationalization in your Linux environment.
Functional thinking: Coupling and composition, Part 2Programmers accustomed to using the building blocks of object orientation (inheritance, polymorphism, and so on) can become blind both to its shortcomings and to alternatives. Functional programming uses different building blocks to achieve reuse, based on more general-purpose concepts like list transformations and portable code. This installment of Functional thinking compares coupling via inheritance with composition as reuse mechanisms, and pinpoints one of the key differences between imperative and functional programming.
The Laundruino « möp, möp!My washing machine is located in the basement. Unfortunately, the time data displayed on the front panel is always inaccurate. So instead of constantly running down the stairs and checking if the laundry is done, I decided to connect the washing machine to my LAN and extend it’s features by a simple http server. This is what I needed for it: * 1 arduino uno * 1 ethernet shield * 1 opto-coupler (CNY17) * 1 perfboard * 1 resistor (150 Ohm)

Court Order Seeks Email Data of WikiLeaks Volunteer Jacob Appelbaum - WSJ.comThe U.S. government has obtained a controversial type of secret court order to force Google Inc. and small Internet provider Sonic.net Inc. to turn over information from the email accounts of WikiLeaks volunteer Jacob Appelbaum, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. … The government’s request included the email addresses of people Mr. Appelbaum corresponded with the past two years, but not the full emails. Both Google and Sonic pressed for the right to inform Mr. Appelbaum of the secret court orders, according to people familiar with the investigation. Google declined to comment. Mr. Appelbaum, 28 years old, hasn’t been charged with wrongdoing.

Has IBM kicked OpenOffice.org to the curb?After all, it was IBM that stood to benefit the most from OpenOffice.org joining the ASF. IBM is still making Lotus Symphony and are marketing this OpenOffice.org-based suite as a business desktop application. Because of this vested interest, Big Blue should be much happier keeping OpenOffice.org with the ASF than The Document Foundation. Why? Because now that OpenOffice.org is part of the ASF, the OpenOffice.org office suite is licensed under the Apache Software License (ASL) v2. This means IBM and any other Apache OpenOffice.org project member can innovate the OpenOffice.org source code for their own purposes and not be obligated to give back to the mainline OpenOffice.org code, since the ASL is a non-copyleft license. […] Okay, so given that IBM should have a lot to gain from an active Apache-licensed OpenOffice.org, where’s the money?
