Subject: How to enable screen lock in Linux Mint 13 MATE

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

In MATE, the screen lock feature is disabled by default. After being idle for a while, the screen will be dimmed and you can re-activate it by moving the mouse or hit a key. For security reasons, you may want to enable the screen lock feature.

Subject: ProFTPd: Enabling/Disabling TLS Based On User Or Group

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

FTP is a very insecure protocol because all passwords and all data are transferred in clear text. By using TLS, the whole communication can be encrypted, thus making FTP much more secure. While this is a good thing, not all FTP clients support TLS. This article explains how to enable or disable TLS in ProFTPd based on the FTP user or group.

Subject: The Truth About Open Source In The Enterprise

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

When I first got into IT back in the late 90?s as a teen, I was always baffled by the landscape in regards to infrastructure and software. And coming from a Linux background, who could blame me? When I went off to get my secondary education, I chose the vocational route and I chose to certify in Novell and Microsoft because they were the two major players at the time.

Subject: Android 201: Recent AsyncTask Changes

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

Ever since the first time I read the blog post “Painless Threading” over on the Android Developers blog I have used AsyncTasks quite often in my code. Just about any time I have an operation that might slow down the user interface I just throw together an AsyncTask and have it run in the background. The class is extremely easy to use.

7-Zip and p7Zip belong to a family of file compression utilities that are among the best available for Linux/Unix. So you would think that the development communities would offer to Linux users what is available in similar compression apps on the Windows and Mac platforms. Think again!

Subject: The Rapidly Changing Desktop

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

Two years ago, I got into a conversation with another professional about the desktop. I opined that very shortly, the desktop would be our cell phone and there would be no need to put file servers at everyone's desk. This was partially driven by the announcement that morning, at LinuxCon, by Qualcomm, that they were going to put dual-core 1 GHz processors in their next generation cell phones. This professional pooh-poohed the idea as completely unworkable.

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

It comes to us courtesy of Sanko Co., Ltd. of Japan. Measuring just (in mm) 10x98x42, and weighing in at just 39 g (1.4 oz), this computer is really small. But size is not just what this device has going for it – it has its own fair share of connectivity. From the title of this article, you already know that it has an HDMI port. But it also has a: standard USB port, microSD slot, and Mic ports. Add built-in wireless connectivity to the list.
