Reddit: vi(m) lovers: don't forget about vi-mode for the command-line (bash, zsh)

Friday 6th of October 2017 12:45:02 PM

Since vim seems to be a hot topic these days, I'd like to remind / inform all vim-aficionados that you bash and zsh support "vi mode". For all readline-using programs (bash, mysql, postgresql, gdb, and more, but not zsh), simply edit your ~/.inputrc with

set editing-mode vi

Otherwise, put "set -o vi" somewhere in your ~/.profile. Then enjoy turbo-mode on the command-line!

For more tips on its usage, see (but he incorrectly states that / and ? don't work by default; they do.)

Reddit: Are colemak-people using​ VIM?

Friday 6th of October 2017 11:29:48 AM

I gave it a go, but had to give it up due to complications with hard-to-use keybindings. Found out how to customize them, but it was still a pain to work with a non-qwerty keyboard layout. To complicate things further, I use the Norwegian colemak-layout...

Anyone using colemak and VIM successfully? If so, can you share some insights on how you got around the issues that followed?

Reddit: request your opinion-Should I jump ship from Fedora to Ubuntu

Friday 6th of October 2017 10:43:38 AM

I like Gnome, what do you think? Is there any good reason to switch or any good reason not to? The main difference now between them is apt vs dnf - (and all the choice of packages that entails) any other difference I should consider?

  • Steps toward a privacy-preserving phone
    What kind of cell phone would emerge from a concerted effort to design privacy in from the beginning, using free software as much as possible? Some answers are provided by a crowdfunding campaign launched in August by Purism SPC, which has used two such campaigns successfully in the past to build a business around secure laptops. The Librem 5, with a five-inch screen and radio chip for communicating with cell phone companies, represents Purism's hope to bring the same privacy-enhancing vision to the mobile space, which is much more demanding in its threats, technology components, and user experience. The abuse of mobile phone data has become a matter of worldwide concern. The capture and sale of personal data by apps is so notorious that it has been covered in USA Today; concerns over snooping contribute to the appeal of WhatsApp (which has topped 1.3 billion users) and other encrypted and privacy-conscious apps. But apps are only one attack vector. I got in touch with Todd Weaver, founder and CEO of Purism, to find out what the company is doing to plug the leaks in mobile devices.

Servers: DockerCon Coverage, MongoDB IPO

  • DockerCon EU 17 Panel Debates Docker Container Security
    There are many different security capabilities that are part of the Docker container platform, and there are a number of vendors providing container security offerings. At the DockerCon EU 17 conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, eWEEK moderated a panel of leading vendors—Docker, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Aqua Security, Twistlock and StackRox—to discuss the state of the market. To date, there have been no publicly disclosed data breaches attributed to container usage or flaws. However, that doesn't mean that organizations using containers have not been attacked. In fact, Wei Lien Dang, product manager at StackRox, said one of his firm's financial services customers did have a container-related security incident.

Yesterday the open source company announced it was going to be asking $24 a share for the 8 million Class A shares it was letting loose in its IPO, which had some Wall Street investors scratching their heads and wondering if the brains at Mongo were suffering from some kind of undiagnosed damage. Analysts had been estimating an opening price of between $20-22 per share, and on October 6 the company had estimated an opening price in the range of $18-20.
