Linux Journal Issue #183/July 2009

Linux is definitely going mobile, from phones to e-readers. Find out more inside about Android, the Kindle 2, the Western Digital MyBook II, The Bug, and Indamixx (a portable recording studio). And if you've gone mobile and you been wanting more Emacs in your life then check out Conkeror. Also in this issue: parsing command line options with getopt, checking your Ruby code with metric_fu, and building a secure Squid proxy. All this and more, and all you have to do is get your hot sweaty hands on the latest copy of Linux Journal.

Misspelled project name on this page

while the project name "Conkeror" is spelled correctly in the article about it, it is spelled incorrectly with "qu" instead of "k" on the introduction on this page. Would be cool if you could fix that.
