Subject: Tools To Password Protect Folder In Linux

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

Most of the time, having a password protected user is all you need to keep your files private and protected from prying eyes. There are those few times when you need to allow access to your account to another person, sometimes there are folders or files you would like to keep away from being accessed. Now we can password protect folder with several handy tools. In the Windows world, these tools are quite easily available for Windows but today we will look at a few options available for the Linux user.

Subject: Remembering Vernon Adams

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

VernonLWN reports on the sad death of Vernon Adams, designer of the Oxygen font and author of the invaluable how to use Font Forge guide.VDG Artist Thomas Pfeiffer writes:The name Vernon Adams might not ring any bells for you, but if you have used Plasma in the recent past, you know at least one of his works: The Oxygen font, which was Plasma's default user interface font for a long time.Vernon did excellent work on the font, and we'd still be using it as our default today if a tragic car accident had not rendered him unable to continue his work (sadly nobody else took it up, either). Sadly, Vernon has now passed away.Vernon Adams will always be remembered by the Free Software community for his tireless work for freedom in font design, and we hope he will inspire countless font designers to come.?

Subject: Stupid Patent Of The Month: Elsevier Patents Online Peer Review

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

On August 30, 2016, the Patent Office issued U.S. Patent No. 9,430,468, titled; "Online peer review and method." The owner of this patent is none other than Elsevier, the giant academic publisher. When it first applied for the patent, Elsevier sought very broad claims that could have covered a wide range of online peer review. Fortunately, by the time the patent actually issued, its claims had been narrowed significantly. So, as a practical matter, the patent will be difficult to enforce. But we still think the patent is stupid, invalid, and an indictment of the system.
