The Lord of the Rings The Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy novel written by J. R. R. Tolkien, later fitted as a trilogy. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien's earlier fantasy book The Hobbit and soon developed into a much larger story. It was written in stages between 1937 and 1949, with much of it being written during World War II. It was originally published in three volumes in 1954 and 1955, and has since been reprinted numerous times and translated into at least 38 different languages, becoming one of the most popular works in twentieth-century literature.

List of largest wikis Wikipedia's distinction shown on the table between a "conservative" and an "inclusive" number of pages originated in 2002 with the replacement of UseModWiki's spontaneous wiki modes with MediaWiki's embedded namespaces. For Wikimedia projects: The conservative number for the Wikipedia excludes redirects, discussion pages, image description pages, user profile pages, templates, help pages, portals, articles without links to other articles, and pages about Wikipedia. This may not be true for other wikis.The conservative number for Wikimedia Commons and Wiktionary excludes "talk" pages, pages about Wikipedia, minimal "stub" pages, redirects, and others that probably don't qualify as content pages. Building Open Source libraries with Android NDK Having scrambled through a NDK documentation and a lot of hit and trials and experimentation, finally I could figure out how could one build (even though partially) Open Source libraries with Android NDK. Some background on how Autotools work: The way autootool and friends work is this: You write a configure.ac file, which is read in by Autoreconf and generates a configure script. Configure script test the build system for headers, libraries etc. and generates a config.h which contains definitions like #define HAVE_XXX 1 and also generates Makefiles after reading in the Makefile.in files which in turn is generated using Automake by reading in Makefile.am.

Wiki software Wiki software (also known as a wiki engine or wiki application) is collaborative software that runs a wiki, i.e., a website that allows users to create and collaboratively edit web pages via a web browser. A wiki system is usually a web application that runs on one or more web servers. The content, including all current and previous revisions, is usually stored in either a file system or a database. Wikis are a type of web content management system, and the most commonly supported off-the-shelf software that web hosting facilities offer. There are currently dozens of actively maintained wiki engines, in a variety of programming languages, including both open source and proprietary applications. These vary widely in their platform support, their support for natural language characters and conventions, and in their assumptions about technical versus social control of editing.
