The Wages of Online Disrespect

It’s already been proven that our anonymity online is a myth. Even with tools like Tor and anything else short of a high quality VPN, finding who we are and where we live requires just a little bit of work. The Internet is forever, up until the movement for “the right to be forgotten” came about. But even with that, none of us are really safe from discovery if someone wants to find us.

Be an inspiration, not an impostor

Major Hayden is a man of considerable skill. In addition to his job at Rackspace, he spends time developing open source projects, maintaining packages for Fedora, and making sure icanhazip.com is up and running. He has a stack of certifications and has even gone so far as presenting his resume as a man page. Yet for all his undeniable credentials, he sometimes struggles with a feeling of I don't belong here. It's a feeling that's far too common in open source projects. Yet, given enough eyeballs, maybe all impostor syndromes are shallow. Major Hayden will be presenting his talk at Texas Linux Fest this week: Be an inspiration, not an impostor. read more

Everyone changes lightbulbs in an open organization

  • Story Type: News Story
At a previous organization, I had a good relationship with the administration staff. I purchased large amounts of goods, and that staff helped my team with our purchase orders. In turn, we'd help the staff with other tasks—such as changing burnt-out lighting tubes in the office. One day, another member of the organization was visiting when a call for me came in. It was my good friend from the front desk, asking me to help her change one of those lighting tubes. read more

Steam Machines won’t have a “suspend” function

One of the most underrated features of the latest generation of consoles is the abiltiy to "suspend" the console rather than turning it off completely. Both the Xbox One (since launch) and PS4 (since March) let users put the system into a low-power "rest" mode that provides for a much quicker startup when getting back into the suspended game, saving up to 30 seconds (or more) each time you start up.

Linux Mangaka Koe Screenshot Tour

After the success releasing Nyu with a lot of passion, we decided to start creating Koe witch reached the final stage yesterday! Koe is based on Kubuntu 14.04 with vanilla KDE 4.13.3 core libs containing Manga drawing, viewing, Anime playback and as well subtitle programs out-of-the-box. We beg for your patience at booting, the system has no boot-logo (to look more intuitive with the KDE desktop), but positively it ships some customization to fit the way as a complete beautiful operating system made just for you! Note: We may release an update until end year with a correction at the missed installer `quit' message (it does not affect the installation) and application menu mouse hover closing.
