Ricardo Varas Santana: openSUSE Ambassadors…numbers?
"Alright. Just out of curiosity, I felt like finding out what the numbers show for South America compared to other regions in the Ambassadors Program of openSUSE."
Brent McConnell: Finding the Value in Twitter
"I recently saw survey results from a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll that stated only 15 percent of Americans believe Twitter to be an important new tool for communication and I believe it. Not because it's true but because Twitter can be hard to understand and get the hang of at first."
Federico Mena-Quintero: The openSUSE Boosters Team
"Last week, after the openSUSE Conference, the gentlemen in the following picture hiked through the forests and fields of Franconian Switzerland (don't be deceived, that's actually in Germany), with two purposes:
* Enjoy the local beer and farm food.
* Kickstart a team to grow the openSUSE community.
Allow me to introduce you to the members of the openSUSE Boosters team. All of them have Mexican names."

For Desktop Users

Ghacks/Jack Wallen: Use OpenOffice Impress for flash card learning
"If you are currently taking classes, or are in any situation where você precisa se inscrever em learn a large amount of facts you may have taken it upon yourself (or are wanting) to create flash cards to help you with the learning process. Usually this requires getting flash cards, writing all of your information on them, and then going through the pile over and over again. There is a better, more modern way, to do this. The OpenOffice Impress OpenCards extension allows you to take a bare-bones presentation and use each slide as a flash card. Not only is a great tool for learning, it’s not killing trees AND a stack of files on your PC is going to take up less room than a stack of paper flash cards."
HowtoForge/Falko Timme: Boot Linux Over HTTP With
"This tutorial shows how you can boot Linux over HTTP with All that users need is Internet connectivity and a small program (gpxe) to boot the machine. This gpxe program provides network booting facility. allows you to boot into the following distributions: Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE, and Ubuntu. provides gpxe images for USB sticks, CDs, and also for floppies, i.e., you can boot from a USB sticks, a CD, or a floppy."
Linux Journal/Bruce Byfield: 7 Steps to Better Tables of Contents in Writer
"Like other word processes, Writer makes creating tables of contents (ToCs) quick and easy. Unfortunately, it also works with unaesthetic defaults and allows you to make choices that complicate your work flow rather than improving it."

Jean-Christophe Baptiste: Automatic Backup when inserting a drive
"I bought a 500 GB 2.5″ external disk drive to backup the data of my laptop. It is small, quiet, easy to move and far enough for the important data I want to backup, mostly documents, e-mails or script from work. Being lazy, it happened that I did not backup my data. Yes, it is a shame, but inserting a drive and launching the commands to rsync the discs was preventing me from this best practice. So, I decided to make it automatic. The goal was that the only thing I would have to do would be to insert the drive, and then remove it when it is done."
LinuxPlanet/Juliet Kemp: Advanced Tips for Search-and-Replace in Linux
"In my previous article about regular expressions, I gave some examples of ways in which you can use them on the command line, with various utilities. Regexps can also be used within many text editors (sometimes with a slightly different syntax, but the gist is the same). I'll use Vim and Emacs as examples; for different editors you may need to check the manual for the syntax details."
TuxRadar: Make a Python game in minutes
"While Electronic Arts has done a good job of convincing the world that it takes 100 squibillion dollars to make a modern computer game, the indie scene continues to thrive in a world where people like to try out ideas just for fun, learn for learning's sake and are happy if a finished piece of software comes out at the end of the day."

Para desenvolvedores e programadores Martin: C++, the GPU, and Thrust: Sorting Numbers on the GPU
"Version 1.0 of Thrust was released in May 2009 and is available under the Apache License version 2.0. There is a NOTICE file which also contains the Boost license and a small paragraph by Hewlett-Packard Company. So it appears there is really a mixture of open source licenses applied to the Thrust library. Thrust is completely implemented in header files, so installation for development consists of downloading the zip file and expanding it somewhere."
Friedrich Kossebau: Add a binary filter to okteta
"Welcome to the first in hopefully a row of little tutorials showing how you can yourself add the features you need to Okteta, the KDE 4 hex editor.Although, after writing this one, which took way too much time, I will see how I can make this more economic for me." Day: The Kernel Newbie Corner: "initrd" and "initramfs"--What's Up With That?
"This week, I'm not going to write a formal column so much as just free associate a bit regarding an exchange we had recently on the Kernel Newbies .regarding the ideas of initrd and initramfs, and what they're for and, most importantly, how they differ. And that's where we might get deliberately vague since different people use the terminology differently, so I'll present my view of the terms and the way I use them, whereupon you're free to disagree vehemently."

IBM developerWorks/Jenifer Hopper: Reduce Linux power consumption, Part 2: General and governor-specific settings
"This three-part series is your starting point for tuning your system for power efficiency. In Part 2, follow a step-by-step guide on the general settings of the Linux CPUfreq subsystem and get more details on the five in-kernel governors -- performance, powersave, userspace, ondemand, and conservative -- and their settings."
TechRepublic/Vincent Danen: Get network versatility with SSH tunneling and netcat
"SSH is a versatile protocol and OpenSSH, a versatile tool — so much so, that it can be used for a lot of extremely cool things. Throw in netcat, another Swiss Army Knife networking tool that is even more all-purpose than SSH (in terms of networking capabilities), and you get the network versatility of netcat with the strong encryption and authentication of SSH."

Andreas Schneider: kio_sftp updates

"After running my laptop for some time already on openSUSE Factory, I decided to update my workstation now as well to openSUSE Factory – thus upgrading it to openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 8. Instead of the “old” but still working way of burning a media, booting from it and upgrading my system, I did the “new” way of openSUSE 11.2: Updating in place with “zypper dup”.
Nat Friedman: Outsourcing and design
"If you’ve had lunch with me recently, then you’ve probably heard me rave about my experiences using to outsource various tasks. Here’s how it works: you describe your job, and providers from around the world bid for your business. You can see each bid amount and read reviews from previous employers before awarding the contract. Elance provides an escrow service and some nice tools for managing the workflow and communication with your provider, or you can just email or IM with them if you prefer."

Relatórios Leemhuis: Kernel Log - Main development phase of Linux 2.6.32 completed
"With the first release candidate of Linux 2.6.32, last night, Linus Torvalds completed the main development phase of the next version of Linux on the main development branch. As the kernel hackers already integrate most of a new kernel version's major changes into the source code management system during this phase, called the merge window, 2.6.32-rc1 is already a good indicator of the most important new features due for release with Linux 2.6.32 in early December."

Linux Magazine/Bruce Byfield: A belated report on the mini-summit on women in free software
"According to Stormy Peters, executive director of the GNOME Foundation, the subject of women's lack of involvement in FOSS is not new. "It was just time again to have the conversation," she says. Deobrah Nicholson, FSF membership coordinator, sees things differently, suggesting that reactions to incidences of sexism brought attention to the problem and that "this year, a lot of people saw it for the first time." But, whatever the background, the FSF's mini-summit on women in free software on September 19th may mark the point where the problem of women's low involvement in free software started to be addressed."

SSL trick certificate published
"On the Noisebridge hacker mailing list, security specialist Jacob Appelbaum has published an SSL certificate and pertinent private key that together allow web servers to avoid triggering an alert in vulnerable browsers - irrespective of the domain for which the certificate is submitted.
