    This week I decided to step up from Window Manager Manjaro Openbox and give the latest version of the Desktop Environment in KDE try.  I’m one of those odd people who love minimalist desktops like openbox, xmonad, and i3 but still have a soft spot in their hearts for KDE.  We’re few in number and many with insanity. So I downloaded Manjaro KDE edition and installed it onto my Dell Latitude D630 laptop.  Upon first boot, everything looks professional and nice.  The bootscreen is professional and the desktop has a common theme that is pleasant to look at.   Then I went…

    I’ve been running Manjaro Linux Openbox Edition since about November of 2013.  I haven’t re-installed…since Manjaro rolls with it’s releases…I haven’t needed to re-install.  It’s been as steady as a rock for 2 releases and many months of torture and pain from yours truly. The only other distribution I’ve ever put through its paces like this that remained stable and usable was Salix…which is Slackware based.  Manjaro is Arch based and benefits greatly from the fantastic package manager ‘pacman’.  Oddly enough, Salix has a…

    Hardkernel launched a $30, 60 x 36mm Raspberry-Pi compatible “Odroid-W” wearables oriented SBC, adding eMMC, ADC, RTC, a fuel gauge, and step converters. Hardkernel’s Odroid project developed the Odroid-W (Odroid-Wearable) for a partner’s Internet of Things prototyping platform, after first considering and dismissing its quad-core Odroid-U3 single board computer. The Odroid-U3, which was rated as the third most popular Linux hacker SBC in our recent survey, used too much power for use as an IoT and wearables platform. The Raspberry Pi was more power efficient, but too large. No doubt,…

Until now, game makers have relied primarily on Windows PCs and gaming consoles powered by proprietary alternatives to the Linux OS. However, Linux-based systems specially designed for gaming are on the rise.

    This week I decided to step up from Window Manager Manjaro Openbox and give the latest version of the Desktop Environment in KDE try.  I’m one of those odd people who love minimalist desktops like openbox, xmonad, and i3 but still have a soft spot in their hearts for KDE.  We’re few in number and many with insanity. So I downloaded Manjaro KDE edition and installed it onto my Dell Latitude D630 laptop.  Upon first boot, everything looks professional and nice.  The bootscreen is professional and the desktop has a common theme that is pleasant to look at.   Then I went…

The only other distribution I’ve ever put through its paces like this that remained stable and usable was Salix…which is Slackware based.  Manjaro is Arch based and benefits greatly from the fantastic package manager ‘pacman’.  Oddly enough, Salix has a…

As a result, a maliciously developed app can include an invalid certificate claiming it's Flash, Wallet, or any other app hard coded into Android.

It's got all the usual scary-scary language about doom and gloom, quotes from antivirus peddlers, and it wasn't long until sensationalist Apple site AppleInsider took it all one step further (relevant). So, is this a real security threat, or are we looking at sensationalism run amok? This is the issue in a nutshell.

I did remove the compression feature (as made famous by the CRIME attack; not all protocols or deployments are vulnerable, but we're also aiming for a simpler feature set overall) and made a few other cleanups. While it's very helpful to be in the same room as other hackers to exchange ideas, having everyone pounding on the source at the same…
