Live Stream Your Pets with Linux and YouTube!

Anyone who reads Linux Journal knows about my fascination with birdwatching. I've created my own weatherproof video cameras with a Raspberry Pi.

Creating an Application-Based Terminal Session

One of my first exposures to computers in a work environment was using a Wyse terminal to access a console-based application for data entry.
