Time Event
operating temps?
I have a Toshiba Satellite 1115-S123 running SuSE 9 pro and was wondering if anyone here had problems with their laptop running hot? I have omnibook installed so I have full fan support / can edit the temps that trigger the fan levels. At what temps should the fan be triggered to come on?

matt@slacker:/proc/omnibook> cat fan;cat temperature
Fan is on
CPU temperature: 60 C

Open Source Research
My company is looking into intelligent uses of open source software for itself and clients. I have the fun task of becoming very educated about the subject and helping management put together the list of questions for the IP lawyer. I have already done some investigation and know that the GNU GPL is the most popular open source library, and open source software like apache have significant positions on the internet.

Here is some interesting stats. 71.5% of the internet's web servers are Apache based (various versions) and IIS is about 22%. All other web servers combined make up the rest. And of the 71.5% of Apache servers, half are running PHP modules. These facts and others can be found here.

However I need a lot of data. Can people out there give me links to sites with reports, white papers and statistical information about open source issues? I need to know percentages of Linux adoption in various markets. I need to know percentages of companies that use open source in various markets. I need reports about open source license compliance and repercussions of non-compliance. I need to know, other than SourceForge.net, popular open source repositories. I need any and all facts, reports, white papers and even article commentaries about open source, the more the better.

Lastly, please let others know that I am looking for this information. They can email it to jcrow [at] techdiscovery [dot] com or reply here.

Thank you for your assistance!
Keyboard flush!
After 15-odd years of faithful service, my Copam Model M clone is finally starting to fail. The keys are just as wonderfully clicky as ever, but the electronics seem to be failing.

I've ordered a replacement, but I still have a couple days to wait until it arrives. From Xev, I suspect that it is dropping packets, and thus missing KeyRelease events. The effect is that it goes into a wierd state until I thrash it around enough to get it out. There must be a better way.

My question: Is it possible to reset the keyboard's state from the commandline?
This may be a very dumb question.....
Is there a web browser that will display basic graphics and text from a CLI interface in Linux?
