copying multiple DVDs

I'd like to build a Linux machine that will simultaneously burn several 
(say, 10) DVDs from an original ISO file. It is our DVD, so no copyright 
issue is involved here.

I find burning from a single burner too slow, if I want to burn, say, 
100 copies quickly.

What I have in mind is to connect 10 burners to one machine. Then, to 
have 10 instances of K3B (or some similar disk-burning software, K3B is 
best though...) running, each instance using 1 of the 10 burners.

Is this at all possible? The PCs I've seen have at most 4 SATA ports, 
and one of these is for the hard drive. That leaves only 3 for 3 burners.

If I connect a DVD burner to SATA ports 2, 3, and 4 (#1 is used by the 
hard disk), will this idea work?

How do I connect more than 4 SATA drives to a PC?

Thanks in advance,

Obet Verzola

PS. To the curious: I work with farmers and we have a training video for 
farmers that we produce on demand, and sometimes we need to do so quickly.

We need more.

Open source software security and the openssl bug

Is it really that big of a deal that people should stop using open source?

It was a stupid bug and people learned a lot today.

Open source software is used in critical infrastructure today. Billions are being spent on open source development and it's not just for hobbyists anymore.

I remember the days when I was told I commuted career suicide when I went open source.

The only proprietary software I use nowadays are the firmware on this phone and my laptop and the websites I read. So I am biased. Yeah Whatever.

Thanks for the feedback! Actually, I was hoping it to be more relevant
as a community :) For example, I have a manpower-related question that
I posted there, because it's still Linux-relevant and it can't be
answered so easily by Google || Bing || Yahoo ;)

My buddies and I are looking for summer interns to process lots of
text files. I just realized that school schedules are done already, so
I maybe too late :(

What do you think is the availability & depth of skills in schools now?

Any recommendations for me to go to?

============================================================
An intense technology company is looking for a Junior Linux System
Administrator for its Metro Manila office. The role of a Junior Linux
System Administrator is responsible for maintaining and analyzing
large datasets on Linux servers.

The primary operating system for the Linux servers is CentOS, but
there will be Ubuntu workstations as well.

Expectations include:
- The most important skill set is to be able to process text files,
using basic Unix tools like gawk, sed, grep, uniq, sort, vi, and the
like. Python or other language programmers are very welcome too.
Potential candidates who do not know what regex is, please do not
apply.
- College degrees in Computer Engineering or Science are nice, but not
required, but l33t skills are.
- Manage the inventory of files, including shell scripting development
to automate operational tasks (bash vs csh vs sh vs ksh philosophy is
appreciated).
- Monitor the server health, automating the system health, and
performing maintenance jobs as needed.
- Manage assigned projects and complete them on schedule.
- Ability to work independently and remotely; attention to detail will
be greatly appreciated.

The Junior Linux System Administrator job can be a summer internship
program, or a full-time employment experience. The compensation
package will be commensurate with the Junior Linux System
Administrator skills, talent, and experience. Interested candidates
may send their CVs to BigData.vacancies@... Only shortlisted
candidates will be notified.

[off-topic] PLUG-Misc?

Sorry for the off-topic question, and I don't mean to be disrespectful
at any sort, but is plug-misc still alive? Or relevant?

WiFi Captive Portal with Random Temporary Guest Passwords

Hello PLUGgers!


I'm looking for a FOSS (or inexpensive) linux-based solution on the subject matter.  There's a coffee shop I went to before where their WiFi was accessible via a randomly generated "guest" password that is printed on the bottom part of their POS receipt.

I'd like to implement a similar solution to a private WiFi hotspot where each guest user will be given a randomly generated passwords that they can use for the day (expires after 12 hours).

Fixing open sourced proprietary code for porting to Linux

I must be missing something. Learning from formerly closed code might just need a special mind set or training? I learn a lot but I mostly have to rewrite to "clean" them up or just redesign and reimplement from scratch. I have a deep inferiority complex towards the software engineering elite in the closed Kingdoms but I am not expecting this.

What's your experience guys?

Are they open sourcing fugly code on purpose?
