  • The seduction of the new

    I don't know about the Windows or Mac users' reactions, but the Linux user's always makes me smile as I recognize an attitude I see regularly and to some extent share. Free software users are always ready to upgrade, although their obsession is only partly rational.

  • On Being Ripped Off

    Given I had paid a lot of money for the Kaspersky Crystal Pure protection quite recently (and I think it was on an automatic renewal) I feel pretty ripped off. Am I being reasonable, or is it my fault for changing the operating system?

  • Inside SparkFun's Fellowship of the Things video series

We somehow got permission to build an Internet of Things-dedicated apartment inside SparkFun HQ to use as a demo area for the projects, and so far it's been a huge success!

    Use strong password

    If you use SSH to connect to your system disable password authentication and use SSH Keys.

    If you choose to ignore the above – use a strong password for your root user – avoid dictionary words

    Change default SSH port

  • Building a new cloud security model

    When working with cloud providers it is important to establish what responsibilities you retain for security and what is managed by the provider. Dependent on the nature of the service, the line of responsibility shifts. For IaaS providers, the customer is responsible for the operating system up; however, for SaaS providers, the customer is responsible for privileged users. This has a major impact on the security controls we implement to shore up our end of the bargain.

  • GALPon MiniNo 2015 Screenshot Tour
  • Fedora 23 Is Now Under Its Final Freeze [Ed: older]
  • Fedora 23 pushed back for one week

    Rather than the full Five Things in Fedora This Week, I’ve just got one — as you may have seen by now, while we hoped to sign off on the Fedora 23 final release yesterday for availability next week, the quality assurance team found a number of issues that still needed to be addressed first. Fedora always releases on Tuesday (it makes the logistics a lot easier), so with the delay, the planned release date is now November 3rd, 2015.

    This extra week will both give time to get fixes in place, and to make sure those are fully tested. (We wouldn’t want to give you a Fedora OS with rushed fixes which might be incomplete or even cause other problems.)

  • Gyft’s Giyom Lebleu: Following Linux ‘The Most Likely Path for Bitcoin’ (Interview)

    So, to compare it to Linux, some people say Bitcoin is starting to follow that path. It started as a personal project and then nobody thought that it was going to be serious, then it became serious and everyone said “Linux is going to kill Windows” and “Bitcoin is going to kill Fed Money” and in the end that is not quite what happened to Linux.

    Linux on the desktop never really caught on [with the mainstream user]. But now, everyone is using Linux. If you have an Android phone, you are using Linux. You could even say anyone using a website is using Linux. So everyone is using the technology and using the community and the software that it is based on. I think that is the most likely path for Bitcoin.

  • Crownstone – the smart power outlet

    KDE and ownCloud developer Jos Poortvliet speaks to the DoBots creator about their latest smart home tech

    [...]

    Anne: Many are simple: fridges, televisions. Others are harder – we’ve got trouble with the difference between LCD- and TFT-based monitors, for example. Our algorithm is about 93% accurate right now and we’re working on making it better before we put it on Github. Did I mention that everything we do is open source?
