Internode switches on SourceForge mirror

Free downloads for subscribers

National ISP Internode has launched an Australian mirror of the SourceForge open source software repository and development portal.

SourceForge.net provides free hosting to open source software development projects with resources for managing projects, issues, communications and code.

Internode's 4.7 terabytes of SourceForge mirror is unmetered for Internode customers.

With SourceForge Internode claims a total amount of mirrored content on its servers of more than 32 terabytes.

Technical leader for content services at Internode Kingsley Foreman said unmetered access SourceForge data is a boon for the local open source community.

"We see this as an important enhancement for Australia's open source community by providing high-performance access to SourceForge that eclipses its previous local footprint," Foreman said.

"Increasingly, future software will come from the international collaboration that emerges from the open source community, so Internode is pleased to make it even easier for this to happen."

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
