Rock Your Webcam Like It's 1995
Many Webcam applications exist for Linux. If you want to play with self-portraits, there's Cheese. If you want to set up a security system in your office, there's Motion. But, if you just want to have some fun, give HasciiCam a try.
HasciiCam does for Webcams what aalib+mplayer does for video files. It renders your live video directly into ASCII. It also has a feature to create a live Web feed of your ASCII video for the whole world to see! HasciiCam might not be the most practical application to use with your Webcam, but if you ever have been fascinated with ASCII art, it might be the most fun. It's most likely packaged with your favorite distro, but if not, the source is available from its Web site: http://dyne.org/software/hasciicam.

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?
