  • Story Type: News Story
In these days of always-on Internet connections, a firewall that protects your network from unauthorized access is indispensable. Though most home routers have some sort of basic firewall capabilities, their rules for incoming and outgoing traffic are often basic and arbitrary. An alternative is to run a Linux-based firewall on old hardware, but configuring this sort of setup is generally not easy. An exception is SmoothWall, a free application you can install on any old machine to convert it to a dedicated hardware firewall. SmoothWall has a friendly interface and more configuration options than standard hardware firewalls.

Rev up your presentations with masks and movement

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Mar 9, 2005 3:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
We all appreciate well-thought-out slide shows that logically step through a topic, especially when they're not dull and boring. When creating presentations, many of us are tempted to toss in every little feature the software supports. Unfortunately, cluttered slides can be hard to follow, and obnoxious design elements look cheap. One good technique to enhance your presentations is to use the GIMP's mask feature to make interesting text and cut-out objects, and make those objects move on an OpenOffice.org Impress slide.
