Homemade GPS jammers raise concerns - Computerworld
Topic: Technology 10:52 am EST, Jan 18, 2003

Information in the article that appears in the current issue of the online hacker magazine Phrack potentially puts at risk GPS devices used for commercial navigation and military operations, authorities said.

The Phrack article provides a detailed guide to building a low-cost, portable GPS jammer out of components that can be easily obtained from electronics supply houses. According to the article, the "onslaught of cheap GPS-based navigation (or hidden tracking devices) has made it necessary for the average citizen to take up the fine art of electronic warfare." Electronics and GPS experts who read the article this week called it technically competent and said amateurs with a certain amount of technical skill could build a GPS jammer from the plans.

Linux Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS)
Topic: Technology 12:45 pm EDT, Oct 24, 2002

The Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS) Project has the goal of providing unparalleled flexibility and extensibility in managing storage. It represents a new approach to logical volume management, as the architecture introduces a plug-in model that allows for easy expansion or customization of various levels of volume management.

This should make its way into the 2.6/3.0 kernel tree. Looks to be far more advanced them the currently LVM (Sistina) that ships with RedHat and other distros.

The comparison of EVMS and other VMs paper is sums up things nicely. And be sure to check out the screenshots.
