Russian prison tattoos
More than simple decoration, the images symbolically proclaim the wearer's background and rank within the complex social system of the jailed. E.g. each point on the star represents a year in prison.
Pirate Bay financed by neo-Nazi
Carl Lundström is alleged to own 40 per cent of The Pirate Bay - the largest share - and gave it servers and bandwidth to get going.
Lundström was linked to a gang of skinheads that attacked Latin American tourists in Stockholm in the mid-1980s. Over the years, Lundström has switched his support from Keep Sweden Swedish to the far-right headbangers party New Democracy - but was thrown out for being too right wing. He's currently bankrolling 100 candidates for the Swedish equivalent of the BNP.

rsync, I love ye
If you want to keep multiple copies of your site synchronized, check out rsync. Instead of uploading/downloading everything each backup, rsync makes a file-check and only transfers those items that have changed.
It's that easy.
rsync -av -e ssh --delete /home/michael/public_html email@example.com:/public_html/
Lenny and Ibex on ORF ON
Two recent Linux-articles I wrote for futurezone.orf.at. The picture above was taken at Cafe Rüdigerhof in Vienna.
Debian 5.0 "Lenny" erschienen
Die fünfte Auflage der GNU/Linux-Distribution Debian überzeugt mit Stabilität, Sicherheit und freier Software. Ein ausgereiftes Paketmanagement sorgt für maßgeschneiderte Lösungen vom Desktop- bis zum Servereinsatz. Die Entwicklergemeinde von Debian, das auch als Grundlage für das populäre Ubuntu Linux dient, setzt dabei auf ausgiebige Qualitätssicherung statt brandaktuelle Software.
Die neueste Version der populären Linux-Distribution Ubuntu zielt vor allem darauf ab, das Betriebssystem für den Einsatz auf Mobilcomputern attraktiver zu machen. Auch bei Sicherheit und Administration hat das System, das nun unter dem Zeichen des Steinbocks steht, viel zu bieten.
Vienna RUNCH store resize and "bitchy" Alien
Went to the RUNCH Comics store on Kaiserstraße today, to get my monthly fix of PREVIEWS-sensory-overload-Magazine. They've resized again, according to the owner all those MARVEL-Comics don't sell anymore. People now prefer buying complete series in a trade paperback or hardcover, instead of opting for the 20-pages serialized stuff. Most of his customers seem to be Anime-loving 14-year olds anyway. And Magic, the card-trading-game, is apparently dead. :(
Last.fm: All your data are belong to RIAA
Last.fm has hit out at an uncorroborated report that alleged the music streaming website passed user data over to the Recording Industry Ass. of America (RIAA).
....'Whole story made up,' claims co-founder.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
..."(Some people assert that many hackers have a mild form of autism or Asperger's Syndrome, and are actually missing some of the brain circuitry that lubricates "normal" human social interaction. This may or may not be true. If you are not a hacker yourself, it may help you cope with our eccentricities if you think of us as being brain-damaged. Go right ahead. We won't care; we like being whatever it is we are, and generally have a healthy skepticism about clinical labels.)"
