I notice that diafol is a bit quiet this year when it comes to the Six Nations. Can't imagine why :) Saying that has probably just guaranteed a butt-kicking by Ireland for England now (actually don't mean that, think it will be a really tough and close game though). Ditto when it comes to France v Wales this afternoon, depending as usual on which French team turns up.

According to the [Daily Mirror](http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/technology-science/technology/charlie-hebdo-isis-flag-death-4946579), a number of official websites connected to French municipalities were hacked at the end of last week to coincide with the Charlie Hebdo massacre and the hostage taking at the Jewish supermarket. The newspaper reported that the home screens of websites belonging to the towns of Jouy-le-Moutier, Piscop, Goussainville, Val D'Oise and Ezanville (all surrounding Paris) were defaced with a Jihadist ISIS black flag and a message which translates as "The Islamic State Stay Inchallah, Free Palestine, Death to France, Death to Charlie." The hacker concerned declares himself to be an Algerian using the name …

Anybody else going to be glued to it this year? First result already in: Wales 23 : 15 Ireland Italy were very good, Wales rather indifferent. Great to see Italy attacking and playing with width. They may take a few unexpected scalps this season. Well, they did last year too, but anyway... Next up: France v England Should be very interesting, with Ireland v Scotland tomorrow too. Grand Slam hopes for F/E/I may be crushed this weekend, although the Championship may still be up for grabs if somebody slips. I'll be hoping for a Welsh win. :| Big ask. ![17e78ae607a315d5cccad60591a50154](/attachments/large/0/17e78ae607a315d5cccad60591a50154.png …

Hi, my name is Stéphane, i'm french, i live in France in a beautiful place (see the link below) called Vercors, i'm a christian, i play bass in a reggae band, and i love programming... I'm interested for quite some time to Python but it is only fairly recently that I decided to hang in my discovery and my learning (non-professional, staff only) of this language. Beside that, I use a lot Php (and of course html, css, javascript), so I think I could be interested in sites development with Python ... But I'm not yet to this point! Photos …

Tech employees are starting to take matters into their own hands, with some apparently not above kidnapping. Our story begins in southwestern France, at a soon-to-be-closed Sony plant where employees had suffered numerous layoffs. Frustrated with the aggressive pace of the layoffs, and the seeming arrogance among Sony execs in doling out the pink slips, Sony workers “detained” Sony France chief executive Serge Foucher overnight to convince him to negotiate better terms for plant employees once the Sony site closes down in April. Shades of “9-to-5”, right? But Dabney Coleman and Dolly Parton were nowhere to be found as Serge …

Not only do the French have a different word for everything, they also have a strong Open Source leadership position. The French have done much to foster the growth and acceptance of Open Source software--especially Linux. The [URL="http://www.mandriva.com"]Mandriva Linux [/URL]distribution was born and raised in France (now in its 10th year), the French government offers tax incentives to encourage more Open Source development, and more 175,000 memory sticks with Open Source software were given to Parisian high school students last year. More USB sticks will be distributed each year as an ongoing step to alleviate costs associated with the purchase …

A proposal from the [URL="http://www.premier-ministre.gouv.fr/en/"]French Ministry of Culture[/URL] could hit online music and movie piracy very hard with a very big stick if it goes ahead. In addition to the existing law, introduced only last year, which made unauthorised file-sharing a criminal offence carrying a 30,000 Euro fine and up to six months in prison, the new proposals seek to kick pirates off the Internet altogether. Along with other measures such as the watermarking of digital content, the Ministry of Culture plans include the controversial concepts of monitoring and tracking the movement of those watermarked files and the people who …

The French parliament is now going to dump Windows in favour of open-source. More specifically, Linux. The planned switch date is June 2007, with over 1000 parliament workers switching. No word yet on what Linux distribution they're going to use, or what email client -- one thing is for sure: they're going to use Firefox as their web browser. At the moment, a number of the computers run Linux, using Apache as their web server, and a content-management system being run with [URL="http://www.mamboserver.com/"]Mambo[/URL]. "The study showed that open-source software will from now on offer functionality adapted to the needs of …

Launched September 5, 1977, the Voyager 1 spacecraft has crossed the Termination Shock* of our solar system, and has entered a new region of space at extreme distances from our sun. According to researchers at the University of Maryland, Voyager made this transition December 16, 2004, and it took researchers several months to track the latest data and confirm that the explorer made the transition. Voyager will need to travel through the Heliosheath*, pass through the Heliopause*, and then it will be in pure interstellar space, and completely out of the solar system. As of mid-July, Voyager 1 was 8.9 …
