有無搞錯,Woody 是牛仔電影中的人物?

開放系統世界是國內的一本Linux和開源雜誌,由國家背景的賽迪集團編寫,以月刊形式發行,每期100頁左右,從業界到end user的使用都有涵蓋,內容算是豐富。以前在高登等電腦商場都可以買到,但現在我不太清楚。

2004年3月刊有一篇題為"Debian及其社區發展"的文章,筆者為楊鵬和李洋,文章大致可讀。不過其中的一段可以令大家在沉悶的一天開懷:

“其實,就像Windows 95的代號是Chicago,Windows
XP的代號是Whistler一樣,Debian各個版本也有非常奇怪的代號。[…]
Debian從1.1到3.0的版本代號都非常有趣,例如,Debian
1.1叫Buzz,1.2叫Rex,2.0叫Hamm,2.2叫Potato,3.0叫Woody。據說這些名字都出自於電影裡面人物的姓名,目前使用的Woody就是某部牛仔電影中的人物。”

All work and no play…

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. What work I have done this week, too much. Looked into Nukes from the Jboss project, tried different plugins of Eclipse: vim plugin, subversion plugin, black sun editor plugin, finally got to try out the Innodb engine in MySQL, discovered a cool GPL’d data modelling tool called DBDesigner4 which can reverse engineer databases, configured ODBC for PostgreSQL by using the PostgreSQL ODBC driver, psqlodbc and unixODBC, dug into Torque to see how it works with Innodb, and set up PhpWiki for our team. Oh my god!

friends of friends of friends of friends…

Orkut is the new kid on the block, at least to me. Orkut being a
friends-of-friends network, it can only be joined by invitation only,
so you can only wait for someone to invite you or beg someone to send
an invitation to you if you want to play with it. This sounds nothing
until you read everybody is talking about it in their blog and you have
been left out and still cannot see the real picture, and this is where
the curiosity begins.

Just one word, cool.
