Even if you don’t have a Windows component installed, it will be present in your WinSXS folder, taking up space. Why the WinSXS Folder Gets too Big The WinSXS folder contains all Windows system components.

The FCC changed course on network neutrality. Here is why you should care. Cross-posted from Netarchitecture.org Wednesday's press reports of the new network neutrality rules proposed by FCC Chairman Wheeler have been met with anger and confusion.

The FCC changed course on network neutrality. Here is why you should care.

According to the Wall Street Journal, "[r]egulators are proposing new rules on Internet traffic that would allow broadband providers to charge companies a premium for access to their fastest lanes. […] [T]he proposal would […] allow providers to give preferential treatment to traffic from some content providers, as long as such arrangements are available on 'commercially reasonable' terms for all interested content companies. Whether the terms are commercially reasonable would be decided by the FCC on a case-by-case basis.

Formatting text - The diaspora* Project. On diaspora* it’s possible to format your text in status messages, comments and conversations using a simplified mark-up system called Markdown.

Formatting text - The diaspora* Project

This page gives an introduction to the codes used to create this formatting. The first thing to note is that you must use two line breaks between paragraphs (except items in a list), otherwise the paragraps will run together. If you really want just one line break between two paragraphs, add two spaces at the end of the first paragraph.

This is where the Preview button comes in really handy. Try some formatting, preview it, work out what isn’t right, fix it, and preview again, until you’re happy! In the examples below, you can copy the text in the grey areas and paste it into the publisher in diaspora* and use the Preview button to try out some formatting. The State of LTE February 2014.
