JumpBox Info

What is a JumpBox

JumpBoxes are
virtual computers that make installing and managing server based
software dramatically easier. All that's required is one of our supported virtualization platforms
and you can have a server based application running in minutes on Mac
OS X, Windows or Linux. This provides considerable time savings over
manual installation while also being very easy.

The applications we distribute are created
by a broad array of developers and solve many different problems.
JumpBox doesn't develop the applications, we simply package them in a
clean, simple and easy to use format. This JumpBox bundles the Open
Source application MediaWiki.

Our goal is to make server based software as easy to install and use as
desktop software and in the process expose this great software to many
more people. With a JumpBox, what previously took a skilled technician
hours or days to install and configure now requires considerably less
technical skill and takes just minutes.

JumpBoxes are great for trying new applications,
development, experimentation and for production usage in many
situations. Plus the JumpBox advantage doesn't end with installation.
We also provide useful features like integrated backup/restore that
makes protecting your data easy. Support for the JumpBox runtime is
also available with the purchase of a JumpBox Assurance plan.

I tried going to HP's website to find out about getting a blade server running Linux, but it was just more effort than it's worth.

Vista is Slow

So slow, with no other programs open I clicked on the recycle bin to empty it, it was six seconds before the dialog box opened, then another 22 seconds before it emptied the four files inside it. Vista is just too slow.

How Kevin Martin Got Over A Million People To Look At A Woman's Naked Buttocks

Since taking over the FCC, Kevin Martin has supposedly been against regulations -- except in two areas: the cable industry and "indecency." He's been a strong proponent of cracking down on whatever he considers indecent programming, and much of his support for a la carte cable is based on how it might block indecent content. The latest crackdown on indecency has a number of people shaking their heads. It involves fining ABC affiliates $1.43 million for a brief clip of the TV show "NYPD Blue," that aired in February of 2003, and included images of a naked woman from behind. ...

By now, most people would have forgotten about it... unless, of course, the FCC were to bring the clip back into the news, getting someone to put it on YouTube, and driving well over a million viewers to watch the video since the fine was announced.

I think I would consider this clip more funny than indecent; in fact its not indecent in the slightest. Kevin Martin needs to get a life.

Coal Ash Is More Radioactive than Nuclear Waste

Coal, meanwhile, is believed responsible for a host of more quotidian problems, such as mining accidents, acid rain and greenhouse gas emissions. But it isn't supposed to spawn three-eyed fish like Blinky.

Over the past few decades, however, a series of studies has called these stereotypes into question. Among the surprising conclusions: the waste produced by coal plants is actually more radioactive than that generated by their nuclear counterparts. In fact, fly ash—a by-product from burning coal for power—contains up to 100 times more radiation than nuclear waste.

At issue is coal's content of uranium and thorium, both radioactive elements. They occur in such trace amounts in natural, or "whole," coal that they aren't a problem. But when coal is burned into fly ash, uranium and thorium are concentrated at up to 10 times their original levels.

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany have found a genetic factor that affects our ability to learn from our errors. The scientists demonstrated that men carrying the A1 mutation, which reduces the amount of dopamine D2 receptors in the brain, are less successful at learning to avoid mistakes than men who do not carry this genetic mutation. This finding has the potential to improve our understanding of the causes of addictive and compulsive behaviors.

Afghan Student to Die for Blasphemy

An Afghanistan court has sentenced a university student in Kabul to death for blasphemy for distributing anti-Islamic material among fellow students. Pervez Kambux, 23, was arrested in October and was expelled from the journalism program at Balkh University, ... The report said the majority of judges in Afghanistan from lower courts up through the Supreme Court are Islamic mullahs or other religious appointees.
Last year, the government hurriedly flew a man who had converted to Christianity out of the country to Italy when demonstrators called for his execution, the report said.

Investors, "Beware" of Record Companies

"The Motley Fool investment Web site warns investors to beware
of 'Sony, BMG, Warner Music Group, Vivendi Universal, and EMI.' In an
article entitled 'We're All Thieves to the RIAA,' a Motley Fool
columnist, referring to the RIAA's pronouncement in early December in Atlantic v. Howell,
that the copies which Mr. Howell had ripped from his CDs to MP3s in a
shared files folder on his computer were 'unauthorized,' writer Alyce
Lomax said 'a good sign of a dying industry that investors might want
to avoid is when it would rather litigate than innovate, signaling a
potential destroyer of value.'"

Sears Installs Spyware

Sears is now another store I will never shop at again.

Gandalf_the_Beardy writes in with news that's been around a while but is getting more attention lately. Last month Benjamin Googins, a security researcher at CA, determined that Sears Holding Corp. installed ComScore spyware without adequate disclosure.
Sears said, yes we tell people about tracking their browsing. On Jan. 1 spyware researcher Ben Edelman weighed in, noting that Sears' notice occurs on page 10 of a 54-page privacy statement,
and twits Sears because its installation identifies the software as "VoiceFive" and later claims it's coming from a company called "TMRG, Inc." even though a packet sniffer confirms the software belongs to ComScore, adding "These confusing name-changes fit the trend among spyware vendors."
