Letters to the Editor
1. How come your January issue is on the Web and I still haven't received my December issue? Did it get lost in the mail or am I impatient?
2. Can you put more articles on-line for us paying subscribers? I paid my dues and feel like I am due the flexibility of reading online or on paper, please.
—RSVPAdam Holt firstname.lastname@example.org
1. The December issue was mailed one week late due to a problem at our printers, which set back printing, and therefore mailing, by one week.
The Table of Contents is posted to the WWW and Usenet as soon as an issue is sent to the printer; printing and mailing take another three to four weeks.
2. We are working on putting articles on-line, but our first priority is putting the magazine on paper. If we don't get the magazine on paper, there won't be one on the WWW, either. We are not over-staffed, and right now many of the articles you see already on our site were html-ized by volunteers. Our goal is to have the entire journal on on the WWW, and we are working towards that goal by creating tools that will allow us to work simultaneously on the paper and WWW versions of the articles. But that's another project which competes for time with the all-important process of getting the articles on paper.
We understand that you feel that we owe you having all the articles on-line; but it's not something we offer as part of the subscription, partly because we don't have the resources to provide that service in a timely fashion. We would like to suggest that you compare the WWW service that we provide now, with a full, interactive index, many of our previous articles, and response forms all available, with what we provided a year (and less) ago—no WWW service at all. Please understand that we are growing, and increasing our level of service as we grow, but it takes time.
I'm just writing to give you the current URLs and e-mail addresses for the Hungry Programmers stuff that were mentioned in the Lesstif and Viewkit article in the November issue of LJ.
The URL for the Hungry Programmer's homepage is now http://www.hungry.com:8000/
The URL for the lesstif stuff is now http://www.hungry.com:8000/products/lesstif/
The URL for the lesstif documentation project is now www.hungry.com:8000/products/lesstif/Lessdox/LessTif.html
The URL for the viewkit stuff is now http://www.hungry.com:8000/products/viewkit/
The e-mail address for the hungry programmers is now email@example.com
The address for the mailing list is also different than what was published in the article. It is now firstname.lastname@example.org.
An alert LJ reader, Robert Day, pointed out an error in the Find tutorial published in the December issue. The tutorial provided an incorrect example for using find to locate files with the SUID bit set.
The example was:
find / -perm 4000 -print
As shown earlier in the article, this command would find only files whose permissions are exactly 4000. The correct example is:
find / -perm -4000 -print
Getting Started with DevOps - Including New Data on IT Performance from Puppet Labs 2015 State of DevOps Report
August 27, 2015
12:00 PM CDT
DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
