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.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
