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.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
