In the world created by Alan Wolfson, New York is even smaller... to a mind-blowing degree. The 62-year-old artist creates handmade miniature sculptures of Manhattan street scenes, down to the finest of detail and complete with complex interior views and lighting effects. For scale: A $1 bill lies on the pavement to show how intricate Alan Wolfson creations are. New York in a box: Peepworld shows the grotty and grubby streets of New York in the 1970s. Room with a view: A detail of Times Square Hotel Room (1982, 13in x 18in x 20in) shows not only the neon and vice of the outside world, but the lonely life of a writer Canal Street Pizza: Some of Wolfson's work is taken straight from real life and real locations. Just don't mention Gulliver's Travels.

Malicious Linux Commands - From (This article was originally published in Ubuntu Forums but was removed there. Ubuntuguide feels that knowledge about these risks is more important than any misguided attempts to "protect the public" by hiding their potential dangers or protect the (K)Ubuntu/Linux image. The original article has therefore been re-created (and subsequently edited) here.) ATTENTION: It is worthwhile to have some basic awareness about malicious commands in Linux. It is also worthwhile to always enable a Kubuntu screensaver or Ubuntu screensaver with a password so that a casual passerby is not able to maliciously execute one of these commands from your keyboard while you are away from your computer.
