Paragon Is Working To Get Its nfs3 Filesystem Into the Linux Kernel

Jim Salter writes via Ars Technica: In March of last year, proprietary filesystem vendor Paragon Software unleashed a stream of anti-open source FUD about a Samsung-derived exFAT implementation headed into the Linux kernel. Several months later, Paragon seemed to have seen the error of its ways and began the arduous process of getting its own implementation of Microsoft's NTFS (the default filesystem for all Windows machines) into the kernel as well. Although Paragon is still clearly struggling ...

PSA: Apple Can't Run CSAM Checks On Devices With iCloud Photos Turned Off

Apple's confirmation of the new CSAM change did attempt to make this clear, but perhaps didn't make as good a job of it as it could. With millions upon millions of iPhone users around the world, it's to ...

Learning SPARQL with Wikidata

SPARQL has a lot of similarities to SQL and also is very different. Here I am going to get the English works of Rabindranath Tagore from Wikidata. I will use this as an exercise to learn SPARQL.

Gillmor Gang: Time Delay

Extra Crunch roundup: build a founding team, choose a VC and recruit your board

The Right Humidifier For Any Home

Humidity can majorly impact health and well-being. If your home doesn’t have sufficient humidity, it can aggravate respiratory issues and dry out your skin.

Crypto community slams ‘disastrous’ new amendment to Biden’s big infrastructure bill

Biden’s major bipartisan infrastructure plan struck a rare chord of cooperation between Republicans and Democrats, but changes it proposes to cryptocurrency regulation are tripping up the bill. The administration intends to pay for $28 billion of its planned infrastructure spending by tightening tax compliance within the historically under-regulated arena of digital currency. That’s why cryptocurrency is popping up in a bill that’s mostly about rebuilding bridges and roads. The legislation’s voc...
