Cumulus Weather App for Linux Desktop

LXer - 1 hour 38 min ago
?Once upon a time, there used to be a very popular app called Stormcloud. And then it was no more. With the developer citing a range of issues including issues with the Yahoo API being used and the lack of time on the part of the developer. Some folks in the Linux community tried resurrecting it by creating a fork called Typhoon. And unfortunately, once again, that did not last for a long time. Now another developer by name Daryl Bennett with the aid of the original developer of Stormcloud has resurrected the app, and now it is called Cumulus.

Reddit: Strange Dlume behavior, links redirecting to certain IP ranges.

Linuxinsight - 2 hours 43 min ago

I was looking for a good contact manager that was independent of the email client. Tried Dlume and any link added to a WWW pages field instead tries to open an IP address. Yesterday when I first any link I tried to add was redirecting to an IP in the range belonging to the Navy Network Information Center (NNIC). Today when I tried the same links it's redirecting to IP ranges belonging to Drexel University. I can imagine no reason whatsoever it should be redirecting this way to any raw IP address given that the address string shouldn't be anything more than a command line parameter to my browser. So the IP address should never even appear as a string in my browser address bar.

Reddit: Installing Whonix VM Inside A Tails USB?

Is it possible? Has anyone tried it? So, boot from USB>Tails>Whonix VM.

Other than potential Tor over Tor, why would this not work?

What size RAM and processor would you need? Any foreseeable problems?
