I just got sucked into Ken Rockwell’s link-i-rific articles on photography: How to do anything photographic. I find it rare these days that I get totally sucked into a site rather than just skimming the first few paragraphs of a post. Let me just say one thing: dude is prolific.

Wow, this means war. Both the Debian and Ubuntu communities are working on Linux installers that operate within Windows, to help reduce the barriers and speed the adoption of using a free operating system. (0 comments)
