HackMy...phase II

For those of you who don't know, Hackmy... forums started out as a "advanced" forum for users of PCLinuxOS.

HackMy has moved to a new host and has a whole new look and goal though.

Hackmy is now open to users of Linux, ANY distro.

In order for users to get the best help with the distro of their choice, the admins at HackMy... felt it was best to get a feel for what other distros do and how they work.

So now, HackMy...Forums offers insight and assistance to Linux users far and wide.

You say your main distro forum won't let you discuss things like how to activate or use the Root account? Come on down, we have folks who have no problem discussing the pros and cons, as well as the How To's of making that happen.

You say your favorite distro forum discourages discussion of "advanced" topics? Bring it on over.

The folks at HackMy... forums are distro inclusive, yet distro separated. They are most concerned with Linux first and the million and one ways ( or more ) to Hack different solutions in it.

Now, this doesn't mean the HackMy...forums are encouraging users to abandon their local favorite ditro forum wholesale. You will still likely get the best distro specific assistance for your distro in their official forums and the admins at HackMy want to encourage that.

However, for the topics that said main distro forum says "not here please" and you ask "If not here, then where?" perhaps, HackMy... forums are the exact where, you are looking for.

Give Hackmy a shot and a shout at http://hackmy.pclosbe.org

  • Smartphones with fingerprint scanners under screen to hit market this year
    The majority of fingerprint scanners can be found either on the back of a smartphone or on the front, embedded in the home button. But it looks like that status quo is soon about to change. According to a report from The Investor, CrucialTec, a manufacturer of fingerprint modules based in South Korea, will launch its on-screen fingerprint scanning solution that allows you to unlock your device by placing a finger on the screen sometime this year. This means that we can expect to see the first smartphones featuring the new fingerprint technology hit the market in 2017. Unfortunately, CrucialTec did not reveal an exact time frame or the smartphone manufacturers it is currently working with.
