> resource for developers serious about writing secure code for Unix

> companion covers a wide range of topics, including safe initialization,
> access control, input validation, symmetric and public key
> cryptography, cryptographic hashes and MACs, authentication and key

> iTunes Music Store. With humor and authority, "New York Times"
> technology columnist J. D. Biersdorfer lays bare an astonishing

> most important languages for anyone in the software industry to know.
> But it's next to impossible to memorize all aspects of UML. Clear and
> concise, "UML Pocket Reference" will become your UML dictionary. You'll
> never again be stymied by an unfamiliar UML symbol, a line-ending you
> don't recognize, or the use of an unfamiliar diagram type.
> http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/umlpr/
> A sample excerpt, "Use Case Diagrams." is available online:
> http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/umlpr/chapter/index.html

> Safari News
> ================================================
> ***"Go On Safari" Tip of the Week Winner--Claudia Bousquet, Manager 
> Worcester Macromedia User Group
> "I was recently trying to find the answer to a simple question about a
> function within one of my design software packages. After a frustrating
> struggle with the "help" feature, I remembered that I had just signed
> up for Safari. I went online and within two minutes I had found my
> answer. I wish I had started there in the first place!"
> Your group can also participate in this introductory program just for
> user group members. To "Go on Safari," any of your members who sign up
> for our Safari 14-day free trial can send comments on their
> experiences, or tips and tricks for how they used Safari  (it only
> needs to be 2 sentences long, but it may be longer) to
> safari_talk at oreilly.com.  (Please include your UG name in the email.)
> Every week someone will be chosen from the tips or comments submitted
> to receive fun stuff from O'Reilly (T-shirts, book bags, or other
> surprises). If a member of your user group is selected, your group
> receives free gifts, too. Whatever the individual member receives, your
> UG will get one, too, to give away at your next meeting, or use however
> you see fit. Recipients--and their comments--will be announced in the
> User Group Newsletter.
> **Please use this special UG URL to sign up for the 14-day trial**

> ***An O'Reilly Focus on System Administration System administrators find 
> their responsibilities lying somewhere
> between deity and janitor. Having the right tools and resources at hand
> can make deity status easier to attain. O'Reilly author and system
> administrator Rob Flickenger has collected our best books, columns, and
> articles in this "Focus on System Administration."
> http://networking.oreilly.com/sysadmin/?CMP=NLC-86L47I806826
> ***25 Years of Animal Magnetism
> Join us in celebrating our 25th anniversary.
> http://www.oreilly.com/25anniversary/
> We've heard lots of wonderful stories and reflections from our readers.
> Take this haiku, for example: "Animals on front / Information on inside
> / Makes heart go boom boom." If you haven't already, send us your
> thoughts. We're all ears.

> Open Source
> ---------------------
> ***State of the Onion 2003
> In this full-length transcript of Larry Wall's annual report on the
> state of Perl, Larry talks about being unreasonable, unwilling, and
> impossible.  http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2003/07/16/soto2003.html
> ***The Essence of OpenBSD
> A thousand open source projects quietly produce excellent code under
> the radar. What goes on in these projects? How do new people join? What
> motivation is there? Cameron Laird and George Peter Staplin interview
> several core OpenBSD developers.
> http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2003/07/17/openbsd_core_team.html
> ---------------------
> Java
> ---------------------
> ***Putting XML in LDAP with LDAPHttp  XML is great for transferring 
> information, but it really falls down as
> a searchable store. Mapping XML into a relational database is, well,
> tricky. Jon Roberts demonstrates that a directory database (LDAP, for
> example) makes a nice compromise while building a weblog commentary
> system.  http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2003/07/16/ldaphttp.html
> ---------------------
> .NET
> ---------------------
> ***SLT Performance in .NET
> The Microsoft .NET Framework brings with it many new tools and
> improvements for developers. Among them is a very rich and powerful set
> of XML classes that allow the developer to tap into XML and XSLT in
> their applications. Before the Microsoft .NET Framework was released,
> Microsoft published the XML SDK, now in version 4.0. Which raises the
> question: how do these two engines compare to each other in
> performance? Dan Furmin shows you the results of his performance
> comparison.
> http://www.ondotnet.com/pub/a/dotnet/2003/07/14/xsltperf.html
> ---------------------
> ---------------------
> ***An XML Fragment Reader
> Despite many potential uses of XML using fragments of XML text, not
> complete documents, XML parsers require complete documents to do their
> jobs properly. This article develops an XML fragment reading class for
> Java.  http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2003/07/16/fragmentreader.html
> ---------------------
> Mac
> ---------------------
> ***In Sync with CVS
> Apple's Backup and iSync applications are great for Dot-Mac
> subscribers, but some folks prefer to "roll their own" when
> synchronizing data among machines. The open source tool, CVS, is a good
> solution for "do it yourself" types. James Duncan Davidson shows you
> how to set it up.
