Subject: Top Open Source Learning Management Systems

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

Open source Learning Management Systems have become extremely popular in recent years, but what does open source mean? Open Source technology is technology where the source code is “open”, that is, the code is available to the public and free to be modified. Improvements can be made by developers and it can be spread or sold to the wider community. So, why should an organization choose an open source Learning Management System as opposed to a homegrown or proprietary Learning Management System?

Subject: GNOME 3 update: 'Connect to Server' lives in GNOME 3.5/3.6, I rant about features being moved and removed, and I fix my GNOME 3.4 problem in Debian Wheezy

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

In my test of the Fedora 18 Alpha release, I was left thinking the "connect to server" feature in the Nautilus file manager disappeared in versions 3.5.x and 3.6.x of the GNOME desktop environment. Thanks to readers, I learned that "connect to server" has moved to a separate application that you call from the shell with the not-so-friendly name "Nautilus-connect-server."

Subject: US patent chief to software patent critics: -- Give it a rest already --

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

Says explosion of smartphone patent litigation is "natural and reasonable." David Kappos, the head of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, offered a strong defense of software patents in a Tuesday address at the Center for American Progress. Kappos touted several provisions of the America Invents Act (AIA), which he argued would allow the patent office to weed out low-quality software and business method patents. Addressing those who claim the patent system is broken, Kappos said, "Give it a rest already. Give the AIA a chance to work. Give it a chance to even get started."

One of the biggest talking points in the run-up to the release of Windows 8 has been the feature that will supposedly lock down the operating system so that it cannot be infected by malware at boot-time.

Subject: Review: Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal a mix of promise, pain

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

Standard releases aren't terribly different from the bi-annual LTS products, though they tend to be slightly less conservative in code offerings. The Ubuntu development community lets off the brakes a little and sticks some shiny back in.Ubuntu 12.10 is no exception, so make no mistake—there's some shiny goodness in this release. We'll get into what makes this a decent desktop and even more decent server release. But there's a little tarnish mixed in, too, and that makes Ubuntu 12.10 less special than previous editions.

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

A previously unknown rootkit is infecting Linux web servers and injecting malicious code into web pages served by infected servers. The rootkit was discovered by a user of security mailing list Full Disclosure, who has posted his observations, including the suspicious kernel module, to the mailing list. The malware adds an iframe to every web page served by the infected system via the nginx proxy – including error pages.

This walk-through explains how to install FTMC, a fork of Kodi, on the Tinker Board under Android. FTMC is notable for providing hardware acceleration and supporting more features on Rockchip mainstream chips, including the RK3288 System on Chip found on the Tinker Board. There’s quite a few steps to get FTMC up and running here, but it’s worth it!

Asus has released a new build of Android for the Asus Tinker Board last week. It’s a fairly minor upgrade. It’s still based on Android 6.0.1 with kernel 3.10.0 but sees a number of fixes. However, there is no Google Play Store. This makes installing and upgrading apps tiresome. Fortunately, there’s a solution.

Subject: How to Change your Android Screen Resolution for the Asus Tinker Board

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

My Tinker Board is hooked up to a Benq 24? monitor running with a 1920×1080 resolution. On this monitor, Android’s icons and font are too chunky for me, wasting screen real estate. Asus’s Android image is configured to use 240 DPI. Here’s a very simple way to make better use of the screen real estate by reducing the DPI, making icons and fonts appear smaller. After some experimentation, I’m pretty satisfied with 160 DPI.
