    The verdict of the first known lawsuit involving the use of a firearm against a civilian's unmanned aerial vehicle – UAV, or, as most refer to it, drone – was made public this week, potentially setting a precedent for these kinds of cases. It looks like you pretty much can't shoot somebody else's drone out of the sky in public.Motherboard spoke with Eric Joe, the owner of the hexacopter that his neighbor shot down with a shotgun last November. Now that the details of the case are available, it seems like a pretty open-and-shut case. The drone was still flying over Joe's family's property…

  • How to schedule background jobs using crontab

    Linux Commando
    Peter Leung
    29 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    The cron daemon is a great user tool to automate tasks that don't require human intervention. Users pre-specify jobs to run in the background at particular times, for example, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2am. To use cron, each user creates his own crontab ('cron table') file. The command to examine one's crontab file is crontab -l. $ crontab -l MAILTO=commandolinux@gmail.com 0 2 * * 1,3,5 /home/peter/backups/backupWP.sh 2>&1 The MAILTO line specifies the email address to which cron sends the output of command execution.

  • Responsive Design and Fluid Grids with these Lightweight Frameworks

    Frazer Kline
    5 Jul 2015 | 9:05 am
    My favorite three responsive web design frameworks are Bootstrap, Foundation and Gumby, in that order. But sadly, development of Gumby has recently ceased. And these frameworks aren't necessarily the right solution for every project. For example, if you want to rapidly create a responsive design in the shortest possible time, you should consider a lightweight framework.

    5 Jul 2015 | 7:10 am
    If you use Linux and wanted to play Dota 2 but have been discouraged by the limited graphics performance of integrated Intel HD graphics card, this post is for you. Intel HD 3000 is an integrated graphics card that came with Sandybridge processors. By default it is barely able to run Dota 2. With following settings, you should be able to play Dota 2 at an average speed of 30 FPS or above. The trick is to lower the graphics settings to make the game run faster. If you have newer processors you should get even better performance.

    So the Ubuntu Community Council has asked Jonathan Riddell to step down as a leader in the Kubuntu community. The reasoning for this can be broadly summarized as “poor conduct”. Some members of the community have concluded that this is something of a hatchet job from the Community Council, that Jonathan’s insistence to get answers to tough questions (e.g. licensing, donations) has resulted in the Community Council booting him out. I don’t believe this is true. Just because the Community Council has not provided an extensive docket of evidence behind their decision does not equate to…

And it certainly is not because the stuff they make stinks (it really doesn't).The reason is simply that I have become too reliant on Google – on one (singular) company – for everything that I do in the digital realm. That fact scares the holy bejeebers out of me. Email, documents, contacts, schedules, pictures, back-ups, audio files of me saying the word "bubble" over and over…

  • Rebasing Ubuntu on Android?

    18 Jun 2015 | 9:20 pm
    NOTE: Before you read this, I want to clear up some confusion. This post shares an idea that is designed purely for some intellectual fun and discussion. I am not proposing we actually do this, nor advocating for this. So, don’t read too much into these words… The Ubuntu phone is evolving step by step. The team has worked their socks off to build a convergent user interface, toolkit, and full SDK. The phone exposes an exciting new concept, scopes, that while intriguing in their current form, after some refinement (which the team are already working on) could redefine how we use…

    So the Ubuntu Community Council has asked Jonathan Riddell to step down as a leader in the Kubuntu community. The reasoning for this can be broadly summarized as “poor conduct”. Some members of the community have concluded that this is something of a hatchet job from the Community Council, that Jonathan’s insistence to get answers to tough questions (e.g. licensing, donations) has resulted in the Community Council booting him out. I don’t believe this is true. Just because the Community Council has not provided an extensive docket of evidence behind their decision does not equate to…

"Despite the high court's inaction on the case, the Google-Oracle legal flap is far from resolved.

Now you have to first go and register in these wallets, if the wallet was popular, why would they offer discounts? They are offering the discounts to capture customers, hence you have to register…

  • Yotaphone says bye-bye to Android, switches to Sailfish

    4 Jul 2015 | 6:04 am
    Update: there's a denial, which in turn is also being questioned. Conclusion: nope, not happening. Russian manufacturer Yota, well known for its Yotaphone dual screen phones, has announced that its next devices will no longer operate using Android but Sailfish, an alternative developed by former Nokia engineers at Jolla. Interesting, if not a bit of an odd decision. One has to wonder what prompted this decision, because even though I like Sailfish for what it represents, it's far from a true alternative to Android or iOS. Maybe Yota knows something about Sailfish 2.0 we don't? I'm intrigued.

    3 Jul 2015 | 11:56 am
    Recently there has a been a lot of debate wether Safari is the new IE, or Apple simply is building a user-centric web, but I think that removes focus from the real problem. The problem isn't Safari. It's a somewhat modern browser that in the eyes of some might lack some important features, but overall is still pretty good and modern. The real problem is Apple's lack of browser-choice in iOS, and that's a problem for several reasons. When Apple allows other browsers (not just wrappers!), email clients, mapping services, etc. to be set as default by iOS users, we're going to see a whole bunch…

    Samsung's partnership with members of the Linux Foundation appears to be bearing fruit. The partnership's mobile operating system -- dubbed Tizen -- is Linux-based. Samsung's initial Tizen phone rollout was rocky: The company's highly anticipated Samsung Z launch in Russia was quickly canceled last year, and the company blamed concerns about the ecosystem for the delay. Unfortunately, in many cases, ecosystem development presents a "chicken and egg" problem: Developers won't build apps until you have users, and users won't select your product until you have apps. read more

    Google Drive is an instrument that is used by many. Of course, there are many alternatives to it like Dropbox or Yandex.Drive, but nevertheless many prefer a Google-backed solution. One of the reasons for me was an ability to have several services under one "roof", one account.Google released clients for its Drive for many platforms: Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS and so on. Unfortunately, an official Linux client is still a missing part of the puzzle. That is why developers worked to create unofficial clients for Google Drive.Grive was a solution for many.

    Public addresses are assigned by InterNIC and consist of class-based network IDs or blocks of CIDR-based addresses (called CIDR blocks) that are guaranteed to be globally unique to the Internet. When the public addresses are assigned, routes are programmed into the routers of the Internet so that traffic to the assigned public addresses can reach their locations. Traffic to destination public addresses are reachable on the Internet. For example, when an organization is assigned a CIDR block in the form of a network ID and subnet mask, that [network ID, subnet mask] pair also exists as a route…

  • Double asterisk brings double expedience to pathname expansion

    Peter Leung
    9 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    If you are a Linux command-line user, most likely, you are familiar with the use of the single asterisk ('*') in pathname expansion (aka globbing). How the asterisk behaves is standardized across all shells (bash, zsh, tcsh, etc). For example, the ls * command lists the files and the immediate sub-directories of the current directory. $ ls *The single asterisk, however, is not recursive: it does not traverse beyond the target directory. You may use the find command to generate a recursive listing of pathnames. A simpler solution is the use of the double asterisk ('**').Unlike the single…

If you have to repeat the install on multiple machines, this quickly becomes tedious. Instead of manually editing the file, I run a text manipulation command such as sed or awk to make the required changes. Then, I script the procedure by inserting the commands in a bash script file. The scripting of configuration changes serves multiple purposes:It is a permanent record of the…

    Being in the right Linux group expedites many system administration tasks, and will save you time.

  • How to schedule background jobs using crontab

    The cron daemon is a great user tool to automate tasks that don't require human intervention.
