TuxMachines: Why I won’t use Dropbox’s Project Infinite if it’s not open source

2 hours 37 min ago

Why not Dropbox? Because the open source community can’t see the Dropbox source code, there is no way to know what Dropbox does to my stuff. Experts should be able to audit Dropbox source code to ensure there are no security vulnerabilities, that there are no back doors.

I am not comfortable with the idea that my data could be subject to scanning and privacy-invading laws that otherwise don’t apply to my local data.

LXer: How to Show All Users in MySQL

Saturday 28th of May 2016 06:33:39 AM
This is a common question most beginner MySQL users ask. We notice it all over the internet and on our blog too. It’s frequently asked because there are other MySQL commands for displaying information about the database, for example: SHOW DATABASES will list out all the databases, SHOW TABLES will display all the tables in your MySQL database etc. It’s not unusual for people to assume that there should be a “SHOW USERS” command in MySQL. Well, there isn’t one. Luckily there’s a way to list MySQL users and in this tutorial we’ll explain how do that.
