Linus Torvald’s talk at Google, about Git, a distributed version control system. I screen-captured his slides, and they are available for download or for [view](http://docs.google.com/viewer?url=/assets/files/LinusOnGitAtGoogle.pdf).

If you have NetBeans 6.0 and you want to use the bundled JRuby, you might as well get 6.0.1 if you want NetBeans to handle updating the JRuby Gems for you (after changing the permissions of the JRuby gems directory of course, see below). NetBeans 6.0 has an OutOfMemory stack problem when trying to update the gems. The latest available Rails for JRuby Gems is 1.2.5 I believe (the bleeding edge as of this date is 2.0.2).

Wherever I travelled, after uploading my photos to Flickr for example, they could all be laid out on a map to show where I took a photo. I mean precisely where I took the photo!
Ok, so you have a computer with all your photos, videos, and audio that sits in your computer room. You have a Playstation 3 in your living room hooked up to your gorgeous 1080p LCD TV. How do you enable all this content to be played from your computer in the back room all the way in your living room? Through streaming of course.
