No Downloads (local copies): Tech Issue or Legal (IP) Issue?
I'm a new subscriber now accessing LJ via the Texterity app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7+ running android 3.2 (it looks very good... I'm happy.. I don't miss the paper). I'm surprised and unhappy over the realization that downloaded issues aren't preserved, and appear to be deleted once the present session ends. I notice this issue has been raised for many months already, with no apparent substantial response or change. I'd like to get a clarification on what the issue is here. Is this behavior by design purposefully to assert or protect the legal IP rights of either LJ or Texterity? Or, is this inability to locally save issues purely a product of a Version 1.0 (or less?) release? Or, is this restrictive behavior a product of Androids architecture... perhaps necessitated by the needs to preserve compatibilities across several OS versions and hundreds of different hardware devices? Does LJ (I'll separately query Texterity about this) have any issues with me hacking my own kernel/environment to over-ride this behavior?
Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.
