Wikipedia License Hacking

Charles Miller:

Most invocations of GNU/FSF licenses (including Wikipedia’s) permit distribution under any later version of the given license, so…The Wikimedia Foundation prevailed upon the Free Software Foundation to release a new version of the FDL specifically giving Wikipedia (and wikipedia-like “Massive Multiauthor Collaboration Sites”) a time-limited option to switch to the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license.

Drobo and Time Machine

Erik Barzeski:

One thing that’s somewhat annoying: the Drobo, when it gets nearly full, will insist that I change a drive. It’ll turn the light(s) yellow and everything. Can’t it be told that it’s a Time Machine drive and that Time Machine will automatically remove old data to make room for new data?
