    • Unix MenHow to Leverage Cybersecurity With Linux Systems

      On the other hand, we can see that corporations prefer to use Linux systems more. One of the reasons for this is Linux offers a great range of cybersecurity opportunities and other benefits for businesses. If you are a business owner or an IT specialist in a company, you should try the Linux system to see how it can accelerate your cybersecurity compliance process.

      Linux is preferable in terms of cybersecurity solutions in corporations. Among other benefits, most companies use Linux for its credit on cybersecurity. Although Linux is a bit more trustable when compared to Windows it can not provide total cybersecurity in corporations. Businesses must take other precautions to avoid unwanted breaches or attacks. Blending the appropriate cybersecurity solution with Linux can skyrocket business quality and cyber safety.

        If you use hundreds of tabs and are reluctant to close them, like ever, then there’s a way to keep them as open as long as possible. Even if you close your browser or shut down your laptop, the browsers can pull up those tabs again for you.

        This is usually done via built-in settings in popular web browsers. And they are different for each of them.

          If you want to add a clock to your Ubuntu desktop (or the desktop of any Linux distro using GNOME Shell) install the Desktop Clock GNOME extension.

          This super simple, typographic timepiece puts the current time and date on your desktop.

          Naturally, you can position the clock anywhere on your desktop, and tweak the typography to suit your tastes. It inherits your system font by default, and puts the time and date on separate lines, but you can choose to have it in a single line, and use any font that you want.

          And what “you want” is the point here: this is a highly customisable widget for your desktop. You can pick a custom font, increase or decrease the font size, change font colour (including its opacity), and tweak the text shadow to make your timepiece pop (or set a totally transparent colour for no drop-shadow effect at all).

Instead you would only have to worry about applying security updates and as a result have a solid DAW experience.

        Back in April, I announced the availability of gopass in the Fedora repositories. In the last few months, though, gopass had multiple releases, many of which arrived in Fedora 38 but not Fedora 37. Since Fedora 38 will be released in a few months, most users are not using it, and therefore those releases are not directly benefitting those users. The reason for the delayed update for Fedora 37 is that the dependencies of gopass changed in the course of those updates, and the Fedora process makes updating packages with many dependencies changes more painful than it could be.

        The good news is that the update of gopass to 1.15.1 arrived in the Fedora 37 repositories.

      • ArduinoThis clever clock displays the time in magnetic fields | Arduino Blog

        You’ve probably seen videos of people moving magnets near iron dust, which results in the dust aligning itself to the patterns created by the magnetic fields. Magnetic viewing film works the same way, but with the dust in an oil suspension sitting in the gap between two sheets of transparent plastic. By moving that film over magnets, one can see the magnetic fields almost like they’re on an LCD panel. Moritz v. Sivers took advantage of that fact to build a clock that displays the time on magnetic viewing film.

        Sivers did this by putting a small sheet of magnetic viewing film in a 3D-printed frame over four wheels. They arranged numbers around the circumference of those four wheels, a bit like an analog clock face. The numbers are made of magnetic foil, so their magnetic fields appear on the viewing film as the wheels rotate. Four boxes stenciled onto the viewing film indicate which numbers make up the current time, so reading this magnet clock is as easy as any digital clock.

          If there’s anything that Santa and his elves ought to know, it’s how to make a list. After all, they’re reading lists that children send in, and Santa maintains his very famous list. Another thing we know is that Santa and his elves are quite multilingual.

          So one day one of the elfs decided that, rather than hand typing out a list of gifts based on the data they received (requiring elves that spoke all the world’s languages), they’d take advantage of the power of Unicode’s CLDR (Common Linguistic Data Repository). This is Unicode’s lesser-known project. As luck would have it, Raku has a module providing access to the data, called Intl::CLDR. One elf decided that he could probably use some of the data in it to automate their list formatting.

      • (Software) Repair info on EnergyGuide labels: Conservancy replies to FTC's request - Conservancy Blog - Software Freedom Conservancy

        Software Freedom Conservancy has today submitted its reply to the FTC's request for comments on how repair information should be displayed on EnergyGuide labels. In particular, SFC has recommended that the FTC mandate a "Software Repair Instructions" section on the EnergyGuide labels that are already required on a variety of home appliances, including televisions, refrigerators, clothes washers, and dishwashers. This would not be a new notice requirement for most manufacturers, since it (currently) only requires manufacturers to provide the notice when they already had obligations under copyleft licenses to offer source code already. This merely changes the prominence of such notices, so that users can more easily see which products contain copylefted software (and thus software repair instructions) or not. This is important because many manufacturers make efforts to deemphasize or obscure their offers (if they have them at all), which prevents consumers from learning that they have rights with respect to their software.

        We are very happy to see the FTC requesting comments on how repair information for home appliances can be better provided to purchasers of these products. While the FTC's EnergyGuide labeling program started out as a way for purchasers to better assess how much energy each appliance would likely use, and approximately how much that would cost them, the FTC has been taking a more holistic view of how appliance purchases impact the world, not just in terms of how much energy they consume while operating, but also how much energy is required to manufacture them and, consequently, how we can reduce the number of appliances going into landfills, reducing the number of new appliances that need to be manufactured. Free and open source software provides many answers to these repair and longevity questions, and we hope that appliance purchasers will be made more aware of this through the FTC's updated labeling requirements.

      • Conservancy submits comments to FTC for free software labeling - Software Freedom Conservancy

        As one of his first official acts as Director of Compliance, Denver Gingerich submitted a comment to the FTC on behalf of SFC proposing adding software Right to Repair instructions for copyleft software on appliances. In conversations with various Right to Repair organizations, we brainstormed how to submit to the new FTC request for comment for the EnergyGuide labeling system. Based on these discussions, we found that there is no organization or governing body requiring repair instruction labeling for software. Given how many modern electronics and appliances rely on copylefted free software, SFC recommended adding software repair instructions that include labeling that there is copyleft software on the device and including specific links to the source code and repair instructions on the manufacturer's website. These are already required by the license, but are often buried deep in a manual somewhere. Adding these instructions would extend the rights afforded by copyleft software to all users of hardware that rely on it.

This has much relevance to high technology, where it makes sense for those not in the knows to loot from those who are; looting knowledge is much easier than the many hours and much reading and experimentation it takes to figure out how these computer things work. Therefore, help vampires. Digital goods on account of their ease of storage will also be prone to looting.
