Back in 2009 Logitech introduced the Unifying Receiver, a great way to connect multiple wireless mice and keyboards to one single RF receiver on your PC.

The Unifying receiver is uniquely paired to your mice and keyboard. When you buy your devices, they are already paired to the accompanying receiver. They work out of the box on any GNU/Linux system.

I’ve recently been involved in a project with a customer to set up their development team to use LiveCode on Debian workstations.

Mon projet d’autonomie télévisuelle à la maison avance et a franchi une étape importante cette semaine: notre compte de câble (service Illico) de Vidéotron est officiellement fermé :) Un enregistreur numérique conçu à partir de logiciels libres et de composantes informatiques ordinaires remplace maintenant la boîte noire fournie par cette entreprise québécoise.

One of the major advantages of free software is that the community protects users from malicious software. Now Ubuntu GNU/Linux has become a counterexample. What should we do?
