"What's coming & new in software design?"
This is a topic that I have to do a half hour presentation on. It's a very broad topic, so there's obviously no way that I can cover everything. But I do want to make sure that I cover some of the more interesting topics.
(Other topics that students had to do were "SCRUM/Agile/Lean Development", "Incremental Design", and "Test-driven Development")
So, /g/, what are some interesting points I should be sure to study (and then present) to my class? Anything that excites you? Anything that you think is going in the wrong direction?

>But not always. Ubuntu, a widely used and influential GNU/Linux distribution, has installed surveillance code. When the user searches her own local files for a string using the Ubuntu desktop, Ubuntu sends that string to one of Canonical's servers. (Canonical is the company that develops Ubuntu.)
>This is just like the first surveillance practice I learned about in Windows. My late friend Fravia told me that when he searched for a string in the files of his Windows system, it sent a packet to some server, which was detected by his firewall. Given that first example I paid attention and learned about the propensity of "reputable" proprietary software to be malware. Perhaps it is no coincidence that Ubuntu sends the same information.
Why are you still using that piece of shit?

Right so NZBMatrix was shut down, the alternatives I have tried have been utterly shit, so I decided to create my own usenet indexer for use on my private network. I installed ubuntu 12.04 server edition on a spare computer I have lying around the house (core 2 quad, gt520, 6gb ram, just in case it mattered)
I installed newznab, mysql, apache, all that wonderful shit but when running the update_binaries.php file it doesn't seem to add any headers, which means when i run update_releases.php it doesn't find any headers to make any releases out of them.
Basically I'm wondering if anyone else has run into any issues when creating a usenet indexing server, specifically when adding releases into the database?
