Subject: I thought SpiderOak could replace Dropbox, but that didn't work for me

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

I was prepared to embrace SpiderOak as a more secure, better-suited-to-me backup/syncing service than Dropbox. I thought I'd like the ability to sync any directory/folder, and not just items under /dropbox.

Subject: Build A Serious Multimedia Production Workstation With Arch Linux

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

Pretty much any Linux distribution makes a satisfactory multimedia production PC. But some are better than others, and my favorite is Arch Linux. Audio, video, and graphics are all CPU-intensive, so I want my processor cycles doing actual work rather than shoving a lardy operating system around. With Arch we get a stable, lean, clean operating system, an active developer and user community and good, up-to-date packages.

Subject: Manage Google Docs With LibreOffice

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

LibreOffice has an excellent extension which allows a user do exactly the same. You can access the files on Google Docs from within LibreOffice, download a local version, work on it, and keep it synced with Google Docs. At the same time you can create new files and 'upload' them to Google Docs from within LibreOffice.

This tutorial explains how you can mount host devices/partitions/directories in an OpenVZ container with bind mounts.

Subject: Firefox 14 tabs no longer sneak a peek at users' privates

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

Mozilla has plugged a privacy-related security hole in Firefox 13 and released a fixed version of its web browser. The flaw allowed the software's speed-dial-alike "new tab" feature to take snapshots of supposedly secure HTTPS sessions. Punters sounded the alarm over the feature that, for example, revealed online bank account details or private messages in webmail sessions to the next user of a shared PC.

Subject: Here's The Proposal The FCC Says Doesn't Exist To Move Network Diagnostics To Proprietary Servers

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

We recently wrote about some concerns by Vint Cerf and others that the FCC was considering a proposal to move some of their network diagnostics efforts -- which are a really good thing -- from the open M-Labs solution to proprietary servers run by the telcos. As we noted, the telcos denied that this was happening -- and Henning Schulzrinne, the CTO of the FCC, showed up in our comments to strongly deny that such a proposal existed.

Subject: Raspberry Pi makers won’t ever sell a PC case, recommend the Pibow for now

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

The Raspberry Pi is often described as an inexpensive, low-power computer. But really, at this point it’s pretty much a low power motherboard, memory, and processor.For $35 you can pick up a Raspberry Pi with a 700 MHz ARM11 processor and 256MB of RAM, but it doesn’t include any storage space… or a protective case.

Subject: Patent troll takes last shot at owning - interactive web - but falls short

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

Judge Leonard Davis, who oversaw the case, issued an order (PDF) today that puts a final stop on attempts by Eolas and its owner, Michael Doyle, to claim it owns technology that's critical to running any "interactive" site on the web. That means Eolas can't use its 5,838,906 patent, or a successor patent, No. 7,599,985, to sue anyone, unless it manages to overturn this verdict on appeal.
