Using Ansible for deploying serverless applications | Opensource.com
Most people think of Ansible as a souped-up version of "SSH in a 'for' loop," and that's true for simple use cases. But really Ansible is about tasks, not about SSH. For a lot of use cases, we connect via SSH but also support things like Windows Remote Management (WinRM) for Windows machines, different protocols for network devices, and the HTTPS APIs that are the lingua franca of cloud services.

Learn how to use mtPaint: Make pixel art and animated GIFs | Opensource.com
There's no shortage of software that can create pixel art, but most applications are either grossly over-featured, meant for photography or graphic design, or underdeveloped, because they are meant for children or for basic graphical tasks. -==- What makes mtPaint great is that it specializes in pixel art, has a tiny footprint—the application is about 391k, compiled (assuming Gtk is installed separately)—and it is designed to run efficiently on specs as low as 200MHz CPU with 16MB of available RAM.

The Linux Backdoor Attempt of 2003
Today I want to write about another incident, in 2003, in which someone tried to backdoor the Linux kernel. This one was definitely an attempt to insert a backdoor. But we don’t know who it was that made the attempt—and we probably never will. -==- Back in 2003 Linux used a system called BitKeeper to store the master copy of the Linux source code. If a developer wanted to propose a modification to the Linux code, they would submit their proposed change, and it would go through an organized approval process to decide whether the change would be accepted into the master code. Every change to the master code would come with a short explanation, which always included a pointer to the record of its approval.

Auf der Suche nach dem freien Inhalt | iRights.info
Ob selbstgebaute Homepage, Weblog oder Miet-Paket eines kommerziellen Providers: meist genügen einige Mausklicks, um ein eigenes Angebot ins World Wide Web zu stellen. Wenn es aber um die Inhalte der Sites geht, beginnen oft die Probleme. Erst Fotos und Grafiken lassen die Webseiten interessant aussehen, und auch ein gut geschriebener Text schmückt das eigene Angebot. Doch wenn man das nicht alles selber machen will (oder kann), stellt sich die Frage: Welche Texte, Fotos und Grafiken darf man überhaupt verwenden?
