  4. There are a few of these either or coming. It's an interesting development.
  5. A very long list... "Here it is: A List of Open Source Learning Management Systems" Quite impressive, really.
  6. ggplot2 in Python. Awesome.
  7. "Rüdiger Kuhlmann, the maintainer of mICQ, had a disagreement with Martin Loschwitz, the maintainer of the Debian mICQ package... Mr. Kuhlmann decided that enough was enough, and he was going to take some action. As of mICQ, the code will, when built for the Debian distribution, print out a message which says some unflattering things about Mr. Loschwitz and encourages use of a different version; the program then exits. In other words, when built for Debian, mICQ thumbs its nose at the user and refuses to run. To help ensure that this code got into the official Debian version, it was written in an obfuscated manner, set to trigger only after February 11, and only if it was not being run by Mr. Loschwitz. For the curious, here is a posting containing the code in question.
  8. Looks awesome.
  9. It's exactly what it sounds like.

  11. "Ghostery is your window into the invisible web – tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons that are included on web pages in order to get an idea of your online behavior. Ghostery tracks over 1,200 trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity."
  12. Somebody reinvented Debian's version numbering system. :)

  15. Another cool looking tool from The King.
  16. Some day, I'm going to want a script that does this. When that day comes, I hope I remember I bookemarked it here.

  20. There should be a better way of finding your R package than searching though a page of short descriptions of all 2800 package.s But there isn't.
