PostgreSQL is a great open-source database system, but for keeping track of spatial data think maps , it really needs to run with an extension like PostGIS in order to handle that type of stuff. Not only does PostGIS allow for complex mapping of spatial data, but it also can handle four-dimensional information as well. Good luck to Indiana Jones if he tries to follow a four-dimensional treasure map though.
It's hard enough to keep track of snakes in three dimensions! This month is a well-rounded issue, which is heavy on the Python. If you're not a programmer, or don't want to learn about programming, fear not. We still have a lineup of content sure to please. Oh, and before you think of sending a rubber snake to the Linux Journal office, keep in mind that I'm not afraid of them at all. Now bees? That's another story altogether. He has a passion for open source, and he loves to teach.
He also drinks too much coffee, which often shows in his writing. Linux Journal. November Issue of Linux Journal: Python. Indiana was the Dog's Name My wife is afraid of snakes. Log in now to read this issue. Recent Articles. It's a good time to be alive if you don't work in the establishment media I'm not so sure.
It is this content distribution system which has allowed the possibility of a Russian influence USA election to have become a reality. Everybody is a publisher, and there is little to no verification, or publishing standards to hold a person to. Things are not vetted, they are simply shared.
A significant portion of information is now essentially gossip. Sure there may be some established content creators, but news on a feed somewhere is not required to come from a well established conten. Re: Score: 2. Re:Welp Score: 5 , Interesting. Well organized, freely available information sources about Linux technical topics killed it.
Nowadays it's easier and cheaper to go to one of many free websites with thousands of articles and technical questions answered and indexed, than looking for a solution in an old magazine rack.

It is sad such a thing happened for the people making a living out of it, but it's good for Linux there are so many information sources nowadays. Parent Share twitter facebook linkedin. Re: Score: 2 , Insightful. Of course linux is full of libtards, go back to BSD already.

Too bad Score: 5 , Interesting. It's quite surprising. A bunch of the articles exist to showcase the OS and provide a tool for people in IT departments to advocate within their organisation 'look, bigger-than-us company is using it to solve this problem we have! I'm a bit surprised that companies like RedHat don't find enough of a value in this to be able to bankroll it.
That said, perhaps Linu. Proof that "information wants to be free" makes great financial sense. A damn shame. Score: 5 , Insightful. I always like Linux Journal, it wasn't dumbed down, like so many things are these days. Back in the day Byte, Dr Dobbs, etc. Linux Journal had its place. Byte downwardsspiral Score: 1. Re:A damn shame.
I've been a subscriber for long enough to remember their Monty Python special issue. This is really sad that they couldn't keep it up even in an all digital format. Ah yes, the Monty Python issue. And that came not long after LJ criticised booth babes, then showed the MP guy at a piano, naked. Who was it that left LJ after the abuse they received because of that hypocrisy? Recent issues have seemed pretty good to me. They always talk about something I hadn't heard about, and it's not like there aren't other sources of info out there Re: Score: 2 , Funny.
The publisher's "nonappeasement" decision was an ultimate win for conservatives. The liberal tripe is no longer in print and the lefties running the show are out of work. Score: 4 , Interesting. But if he had made a pro-Trump rant it would have been fine, right? How dare he express opinions you dislike. We should put him in Gitmo for such a grevious crime. Re: A damn shame. Score: 1. He could stick to Linux journalism, instead of alienating some his readership. Re: Score: 2 , Flamebait. It's pretty stupid to be running a business that isn't doing very well and then decide to take political sides on a polarizing situation, either way.
Businesspeople who value the custom will go out of their way not to alienate people needlessly. Political commentary in a magazine about a computer operating system is "needlessly". Time to do it again. Score: 4 , Insightful. In his EOF column Doc Searls wrote: I began writing this column on November 9, , on the balcony of a hotel in Istanbul, while a call to prayer echoed through the streets below.
I wonder how many other people did the same thing. Still complaining about that after all of these years, huh? Didn't have a 'fat pipe' nor a fast one either, back in the day. It's incredible that she was able to keep it going this long And sold with physical media cd or dvd off the stands! Plus all the tech articles it was filled with, that outnumbered the ads. It will be missed.

It was a good run. Best of luck to the people who made it all work and muchas gracias. Larger, not better. Accepting payment in fish? Score: 3. No wonder they went out of business, they shouldn't have accepted payment in fish. Harder to convert to hard currency than bitcoins, too short of a shelf-life.

How could this happen? Score: 2. They died when they stopped doing physical magazin Score: 2. TIL Score: 2. Many of the columns, such as David Taylor's work the shell, are timeless and quite useful. And there are always the Geek Guides. It's heartwarming to know that people read and enjoyed my articles! Thanks for the mention. Sad, but interesting Score: 2. Sad to see such a publication go, but it is interesting that in the FOSS world all comes down to money in the end as well.
Also shows that documentation is the first thing to go in the FOSS universe, no different than in the profit oriented closed source world. So where are all these volunteers who make things happen for the better of the universe? It's nice to see all of these comments.
