GRUB for DOS 0.4.3pre1 (Default branch)

GRUB for DOS 0.4.3pre1 (Default branch) – GRUB for DOS is a rebuild of the GNU GRUB boot manager for DOS, and can be run under real mode DOS. It also has many new features. It can be booted through BOOT.INI of Windows (grldr) and kexec of Linux (grub.exe). It can directly boot NTLDR (WindowsNT/2K/XP), IO.SYS (Windows9x/Me) and KERNEL.SYS (FreeDOS). The disk emulation feature is another enhancement over GNU GRUB, and can be used to run legacy DOS/Windows9x systems with floppy or hard disk images. License: GNU General Public License (GPL) Changes: A new option –in-situ for the map command has been added. Two syntactic operators, && and ||, have been implemented. is64bit, errnum, errorcheck, and hiddenflag commands have been added. PXE support has been added. Full NTFS support has been done. A lot of bugs have been fixed. [FreshMeat]

ZFS On Linux – It’s Alive!

This is just lovely. A file system that can take automatic snap shots!
ZFS On Linux - It's Alive! - lymeca writes "LinuxWorld reports that Sun Microsystem's ZFS filesystem has been converted from its incarnation in OpenSolaris to a module capable of running in the Linux user-space filsystem project, FUSE. Because of the license incompatibilities with the Linux kernel, it has not yet been integrated for distribution within the kernel itself. This project, called ZFS on FUSE, aims to enable GNU/Linux users to use ZFS as a process in userspace, bypassing the legal barrier inherent in having the filesystem coded into the Linux kernel itself. Booting from a ZFS partition has been confirmed to work. The performance currently clocks in at about half as fast as XFS, but with all the success the NTFS-3g project has had creating a high performance FUSE implementation of the NTFS filesystem, there's hope that performance tweaking could yield a practical elimination of barriers for GNU/Linux users to make use of all that ZFS has to offer."

LG to supply TV converters for US government program

Very interesting, no more analog TV channles. I wonder if Canada will follow suit.
LG to supply TV converters for US government program - For some, February 17, 2009 is going to be a frustrating day, as it marks the end of the line for American analog television broadcasts. Those with old-school wood-paneled TVs are going to either need to go out and buy a new set or purchase a converter box to be able to view the new digital channels. If I wasn’t already gadget-obsessed, I’d be mad as hell if someone forced me to upgrade my TV and I’d be even more furious once I found out how much it was going to cost me. Luckily, your trusty National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)has a solution.
