Cinematte for sale
Posted by: gunne on Friday, October 13, 2006 - 22:31
Submitted by gunne
Nova Design is selling off it's Cinematte Business.

Short about Cinematte:
Cinematte was created in 1995 as part of the Amiga (a computer popular in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s for desktop video) software package, ImageFX. Cinematte was one of the first true digital bluescreening software packages for compositing actors, and other subjects, photographed against a blue (or other compatible solid color) background into another photograph, film or video. While many applications on all platforms attempt to provide methods of realistic compositing, Cinematte is one of the few that can do this easily and realistically using the same methods pioneered in Hollywood features.

Submitted by ironfist
HPCWire is reporting that Terra Soft Solutions has been contracted by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc to build the world's first running Cell supercomputer with Playstation 3-boards. They have built a large datacenter with room for 2400 1U servers. Terra Soft will be managing two clusters for Sony, dubbed E.coli and Amoeba. E.coli will serve as a test system for software development, optimization, and testing. Amoeba will be the production system, and it will be utilized by universities and the Department of Energy laboratories for life sciences research.
Both clusters will run the new Yellow Dog Linux 5.0 for Cell.

IT Manager's Journal has a more in-depth article about the cluster and the company behind it.

Mozilla Critical Exploit Fake
Posted by: ironfist on Wednesday, October 04, 2006 - 19:18
Submitted by ironfist
The critical exploit informed you about, a few days ago was just a fake. The two "hackers" Mischa Spiegelmock and Andrew Wbeelsoi has admitted it was all just a joke. The exploit can only be used to crash the webbrowser, not take over the entire machine.
Mozilla Foundation has been working very hard with this and never managed to reproduce the problem. They now know why..

First Swede Convicted of Filesharing Cleared
Posted by: ironfist on Monday, October 02, 2006 - 17:47
Submitted by ironfist
Swedish appeal court Svea Hovrätt cleared a 29-year old man from Västerås today. He was convicted in a lower court for uploading the Swedish movie Hip Hip Hora. The lower court ruled he did not have any financial gain in the filesharing and convicted him to a fine of 16000 SEK. Today he was cleared after appeal to a higher court. The court didn't accept the evidence provided by Swedish Anti Piracy Authority as beeing enough. All they had was screenshots with IP-addresses. Filesharing have never ever led to jail in Sweden and therefore the police may not do a house search. This means they can't seize any computers.

This means that even more evidence is needed to convict the one million Swedish fileshares. The Swedish Pirate Party welcomes the court's decision. The Pirate Party got 0.6% (34918) of the votes in the Swedish Parliament Election two weeks ago.

Critical Flaw in Firefox
Posted by: ironfist on Sunday, October 01, 2006 - 18:06
Submitted by ironfist
ZDNet carries an article about two hackers claiming a zero-day flaw in Mozilla Firefox. This flaw was shown at the ToorCon Hacker Conference and it was triggered through a website with malicious JavaScript code. The code made it possible to take over the machine. Since it's JavaScript-based it is platform independent and is claimed to work on Windows, MacOS X and Linux.
The hackers claim to know of 30 unpatched flaws in Mozilla Firefox.

Update: This is all just a fake!

SGI Kills Off Irix Unix and MIPS Machines
Posted by: ironfist on Sunday, September 24, 2006 - 08:39
Submitted by ironfist
Silicon Graphics have decided to put their IRIX UNIX and all their MIPS servers to an end of life. They will take orders until December 29 this year and the goal is to have them delivered by March, next year.
SGI were one of the early adopters of the Intel Itanium architecture, but they had big problems with it. It was way too slow compared to their MIPS technology and was evolving too slow. SGI took a big hit on this and filed for bankrupcy protection in May this year. This week their reorganization plan was approved by U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

The new organization will focus entirely on the Intel Itanium architecture and Linux.

The Unix Guardian has a great article about this and also the history from the start in 1982 at Stanford University.

From the article;
"Connect at the Library, with prizes in several age categories, requires contestants to use library facilities such as wireless Internet, microfilm and resource books to find the answers to a series of questions on local lure, history and a hodgepodge of general knowledge.
The idea for the contest was spawned by Rockmere summer residents Bill and Raquel Velasco Buck after utilizing the library's wireless Internet to manage business affairs during their stay."
