Subject: How to setup a basic firewall in Ubuntu Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The first question you will ask yourself (probably) is "why on earth would I need a firewall? Linux is secure, right?" Right, and I know lots of desktop Linux users that never had to touch the subject or don't know what iptables or Netfilter is. Which is probably just fine, but that doesn't mean Linux is 100% safe from any attacks. Any sufficiently complex software has bugs, and many bugs can be exploited and become a security issue. So in the end it's all about some bored enough cracker to take advantage of some vulnerability (one example that springs to mind is the recently discovered sudo bug). What you will need in this case is a better protection than the default (I know Linux is a tough game to crack, but that doesn't make it impossible) while trying not to change in any way on how you use your computer. Consequently, this article will focus on the casual Ubuntu user that has some knowledge of security and networks (what a vulnerability is, what a port scan is, etc.) that wants to secure his/her system.

Subject: 7 Best Free Alternative Git Clients

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Git is an open source distributed version control system which was originally designed by Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, in 2005 for Linux kernel development. This control system is widely used by the open source community, handling small to extremely large projects with an emphasis on speed and efficiency, but maintaining flexibility, scalability, and guaranteeing data integrity. Git is one of a number of open source revision control systems available for Linux. Other popular tools in this field include Subversion, Bazaar, Mercurial, Monotone, CVS, and SVN. However, Git is frequently regarded by many developers to be the finest version control tool available.

As we earlier reported Ubuntu Dash is getting rid of default useless huge icons (I haven't seen any use of it yet). The update has arrived. We are running Ubuntu 12.04 to keep an eye on the progress and we just noticed updates to Unity which removes those default 8 icons from the Dash and replace them with more useful shortcuts.

Subject: Duck Duck Go! A Privacy Respecting Search Engine with Features Enough to Make You Not Even Care!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

A month or so back I went on one of my little quests to find a piece of software that I don't currently have buttoned down. This time around I was not looking for another handy-dandy media related application nor another operating system. Instead, I was looking for a tool I use daily to find other tools, a Web search engine. I have, in the past, looked for "Google alternatives" but have always found myself back with the nearly unavoidable digital giant. This seemingly inevitable return was, at least partially, due to old habits, market penetration (it's the default just about everywhere!), and also simply because the suite of tools the Google behemoth provides work well, integrate well, and help me to be more productive and have functionality that, in many cases, I can't find anywhere else (Gmail, Google Docs, Google Voice, Google Chat).

Subject: Barnes & Noble faces setback in Microsoft antitrust complaint

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Microsoft may have scored an early victory in its legal tussle with Barnes [he] Noble. The two companies are engaged in parallel battles, one via the Department of Justice, another via United States International Trade Commission. In March 2011, Microsoft accused Barnes & Noble of patent infringement with its NOOK and NOOK Color products[/he] in retaliation, Barnes & Noble made a broad complaint claiming that Microsoft is being an abusive monopoly and that the patents are in any case irrelevant. That antitrust complaint looks likely to be rejected by the ITC, a decision that favors Microsoft.

Subject: Ambigious Fedora 16 LXDE

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Fedora 16 LXDE left quite an ambiguous impression on me. From the performance side, everything is perfect. The system is responsive, quick and stable. Except for the case when I got a kernel panic in Samba mounts, I experienced no instability whatsoever. But on the other hand, the LXDE spin of Fedora 16 out of the box is far less functional than its brothers.

On January 30th, 2012, I started a petition requesting that the U.S. government broaden their use of Free Software and Open Source to save money. I deeply believe that this one step is part of the solution to the problem of the crushing national debt that the United States is currently facing. Will shifting to Free Software completely solve the crisis? No, it will not.

Subject: C development on Linux - Structures - VII.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

We will continue in this part of our tutorial with the complex data types in C, and we will talk about structures. Many modern programming languages offer them, one shape or another, and so does C. As you will see later, structures allow you to manipulate data easier, by allowing you to store different variables of (possibly) different types under one single "roof".
