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?

"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?
