New Projects - Fresh from the Labs
Projects at a Glance
I'm dying to cover this project, but installing it is proving to be a pain! It sounds great though: “LiarLiar is a voice-stress analysis tool for Linux. Voice-stress analysis, an alternative to the polygraph as a method for lie detection, is already widely used in police and insurance fraud investigations. LiarLiar's main purpose is to detect stress in a person's voice. Higher stress levels can be an indication that the person is not being truthful.” I'm having problems with library requirements, and I can't reach the developers. If anyone out there can help get this working, please send me an e-mail!
I ran out of space this month, but I hope to cover this next time. Any creative writers should check this project out. “Storybook is a free (open-source) novel-writing tool for creative writers, novelists and authors which will help you to keep an overview of multiple plot lines while writing books, novels or other written works.” It can store all the information about your characters and locations in one place, as well as manage chapters, scenes, characters and locations.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
