At some point in your life, you've probably considered looking into your family tree and making sense of it all. If you're the technical guru of the family, you've possibly also considered how you might digitise all the information your family has collected in order to make a neat-looking family tree to pass around to all the relatives.
I'm played around with most of the majors - they all charge far too much and provide far too little in the free versions. I'm tried Gramps, which is at least open-source, but it's clunky, ugly, and doesn't have the databases behind it.
VMware (NYSE: VMW) added more heft to its vision of the software-defined data center with a $30 million investment in Puppet Labs, developer of software for system administrators to automate IT tasks across compute, storage and networking in multivendor, heterogeneous virtual and cloud environments.
The companies also hammered out a strategic partnership under which the two will work together to d
newbie here. I have Family Tree Maker and Legacy Family Tree genealogy programs running in Wine. There is a program called gedstar (I've only found gedstar pro now) that takes a database from either of those and creates a database that can be used by the Android gedstar program so I can take my family history with me.
I would like to have a method that only evaluates a particular class once a day at a specific time. Right now I am running my puppet agent from the cron, but I would like to change it to either run as a daemon, or run more frequently. The barrier with increasing the frequency is that there is one class that takes about 4 minutes to process, and doesn't need to happen very often.
Linux has a few bootloaders to choose from. Usually, Linux administrators leave the distro's default bootloader installed. Sometimes administrators need to use a different one or the distro's installer gives the administrators a choice between bootloaders. Clearly, it helps to know about the different Linux bootloaders.
