> ================================================
> Safari News
> ================================================
> ***"Go On Safari" Tip of the Week Winner--Andrew Shuttleworth, Tokyo PC 
> Users Group
> "Ever since Google has been around, I've thought that I no longer
> needed reference books. 'A quick search is all I need to get the
> answers I want,' I've thought. But having wasted some good time
> searching for a crucial Excel formula or a 'how to' in MS Project, I've
> realized there is very little freely available reference content on the
> Web that comes close to the quality of material published by O'Reilly.
> Subscribing to Safari Bookshelf means that I no longer have to rely on
> search engines to get what I want from my software, as high quality
> material on almost any computer topic I can think of is just a click
> away. Thanks O'Reilly."
> 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 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.
> 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**

> ***Building an Address Book with OpenLDAP
> LDAP's most sensible example is, perhaps, managing contacts throughout
> a company. There aren't many good examples of this, however. Dustin
> Puryear (coordinator for the Baton Rouge Linux User Group) wants to
> change that. In this article, he demonstrates how to build and populate
> a company-wide LDAP address book.

> ***Ten Security Checks for PHP, Part 1
> The same global access that makes web apps useful means that you have
> to keep on top of security. Though it's easy to create sites in PHP,
> it's not immune to sloppy coding. Clancy Malcolm explains how to
> recognize and fix five potential security holes with PHP in the first
> of two articles.

> ***Space-Based Programming
> Distributed applications promise better scalability and reliability,
> but the standard models of building them on Remote Procedure Calls are
> often difficult and slow. Sun and IBM are taking steps to adopt a
> different approach: space-based programming. Bernhard Angerer explores
> this idea and what it could mean for J2EE.
