Non-Linux FOSS: Persistence of Vision Raytracer (POV-Ray)

LinuxJournal - Mon, 2014, Jan13 - 11:38

Back in the mid-1990s, a college friend (hi Russ!) and I would put our old 8088 computers to work rendering ray-traced images for days—literally. The end result would be, by today's standards, incredibly low resolution and not terribly interesting. Still, the thought of a computer system creating realistic photos from nothing more than math equations was fascinating. more>>

I really don't understand folks who use songs as their ringtones. Isn't it annoying or confusing when the song comes on the radio?

Blu-ray Encryption—Why Most People Pirate Movies

LinuxJournal - Mon, 2014, Jan06 - 12:26

I get a fair amount of e-mail from readers asking how a person could do "questionable" things due to limitations imposed by DRM. Whether it's how to strip DRM from ebooks, how to connect to Usenet or how to decrypt video, I do my best to point folks in the right direction with lots of warnings and disclaimers. The most frustrating DRM by far has been with Blu-ray discs. more>>

The Net as we know it today first became visible to me in March 1994, when I was among several hundred other tech types gathered at Esther Dyson's PC Forum conference in Arizona. more>>
