Subject: Screenshot of my new Xfce 4.8 desktop in Debian Wheezy, plus a list of tweaks I've made in the last day

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

After a few weeks in GNOME 3, which I actually like, I decided to give Xfce 4.8 a try as the desktop environment on my recently upgraded Debian Wheezy laptop. After a full day in Xfce, I've finally stopped mousing into the "hot corner," GNOME Shell-style, and I'm getting used to moving among my virtual desktops and various applications the old-fashioned way.

Subject: Dell’s to sell Ubuntu ultrabooks this fall, Project Sputnik graduates from beta

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

Dell plans to start selling a limited number of laptops running Ubuntu Linux this fall. The first will be a Dell XPS 13 ultrabook aimed at developers and running Ubuntu 12.04. For the past few months the company has been running an exploratory project based on the idea. It’s called Project Sputnik, and Dell already offers a disk image that you can download and install on an XPS 13 laptop. Dell also recently announced a beta program that would allow developers to sign up for an opportunity to purchase discounted XPS 13 models with Ubuntu pre-loaded.

Geeks are known to be obsessive about things. At times that tendency can go overboard, resulting in them looking rather silly and foolish.

Subject: More on screencasting with ffmpeg

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

With the academic year approaching, coming up with a resolution to my screencast file-size problems has taken on renewed urgency. To reiterate, a recent major hardware upgrade on my computer led to a twofold increase in the size of screencast video files I produce on this machine--which in turn led to upload problems at my course web site. It looks like the resolution may well be provided by ffmpeg.

Subject: Can the Terms of the GPL Prevent GNU/Linux being used for War?

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

There's been a lot of noise on the internet recently about the fact that the Windows-based software being used in the remote control system of drones use by the American military has been hit by a virus and this has caused the Department of Defense (DOD) to use GNU/Linux which is a more secure option. This has, predictably, caused raised eyebrows and demands by some that any military organisation should be prevented from using GNU/Linux in offensive weapons systems. The use of Drones in Afghanistan is a highly controversial issue but it is not the purpose of this article to debate the morality and ethics of deploying drones in an area of asymetrical conflict but rather to explore if it is actually possible to use the terms of the GPL to legally prevent the deployment of software or operating systems by any government's military.

Subject: Monitoring via IPMI

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

Today I’ll talk about a very important type of monitoring that is rarely discussed (perhaps because not so many people are privileged to work with hardware that supports this technology: IPMI). The Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) is a standard used to manage a computer system and monitor its operation. Its development was led by Intel and is today supported by more than 200 hardware manufacturers. Its operation is independent of an operating system, which allows administrators to remotely manage the hardware resources even before any OS starts. For example, we can monitor through IPMI system temperatures, voltages, fans (FAN), power supplies, chassis intrusion, etc..For the ones that wants to go deeper in IPMI specifics, I suggest reading the website of Intel
