Article Roundup

A bit of nostalgia, and a cool community of *nix hackers in the truest sense - The SDF public access Unix system celebrated it's 20th anniversary last month. SDF runs on a cluster of NetBSD/Alpha machines, maintains a text-mode BBS and one of the few remaining gopher servers (users have access to their own gopher-space). Basic shell accounts are free, but you can upgrade your experience with some minimal dues.

A fascinating article on anti-forensics, how criminals and black-hats are foiling standard computer forensic techniques. Law Enforcement is already changing their tactics.

Keeping the flame-wars alive. How a Vim User Converts to Emacs.

A Windows guy tries Ubuntu.
