Copyright © 2001 Eric S. Raymond As editor of the Jargon File and author of a few other well-known documents of similar nature, I often get email requests from enthusiastic network newbies asking (in effect) "how can I learn to be a wizardly hacker?". Back in 1996 I noticed that there didn't seem to be any other FAQs or web documents that addressed this vital question, so I started this one. A lot of hackers now consider it definitive, and I suppose that means it is.

So you've decided you want to drop off the map and leave Big Brother behind. It's harder than ever in our always-connected world, but if you're ready to plan your big vanishing act, here are a few tips to get you started. If this looks familiar, you're not crazy. Our guide to dropping off the map is a perennial Evil Week favorite. Who hasn't thought about how nice it would be to start fresh somewhere new, preferably with nicer weather and cheaper drinks?

It's time to update the entries in your browser's links toolbar. But with recent estimates putting the size of the internet at well more than 100 million distinct websites, it's getting harder and harder to get a handle on all the great stuff that's out there. That's why we've compiled this list. And unlike some lists you may have seen, which try to name the very "best" websites, but end up just telling you a lot of stuff you already know, we've chosen instead to highlight 50 of our favorite sites that fly under most people's radar.

I have written How-Tos for many of them, but I concentrate on the "why" answers, not the "how". There are lots of places on the internet with step-by-step guides. That isn't my best skill, I know this. When I do attempt to explain how-to, I don't deal with GUIs unless absolutely necessary. Why not? Describing what to point-n-click is harder than just providing the CLI commands.

TDMA is also used as the access technology for Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM). However, GSM implements TDMA in a somewhat different and incompatible way from IS-136. Think of GSM and IS-136 as two different operating systems that work on the same processor, like Windows and Linux both working on an Intel Pentium III. GSM systems use encryption to make phone calls more secure. GSM operates in the 900-MHz and 1800-MHz bands in Europe and Asia and in the 850-MHz and 1900-MHz (sometimes referred to as 1.9-GHz) band in the United States. Cell Phone Bands and Modes"

10 Tech Concepts for 2011 - Technology Terms - Popular Mechanics - StumbleUpon 6 Optogenetics Until now, researchers looking to stimulate specific neurons had to rely on bursts of electricity—an imprecise and difficult-to-control technique. That's why the new field of optogenetics is so exciting. By combining fiberoptics and designer viruses, researchers can now stimulate neurons with a high degree of precision. This could allow, for example, the development of implants that can take over the functions of a brain region that might have been damaged by a wound or stroke. First, the brain is injected with a virus that is engineered to activate specific neurons when light hits them.
