Reddit: Taking my CEH exam tomorrow and more scared than my wedding day by a long shot.

Thursday 30th of July 2015 01:28:21 AM

Any last minute advice before I take my CEH exam? I've spent 2 years, studying any resource I could find. I work as a network/computer/security technician. (2years) I've dropped $500 and I just can't afford to fail. I've also got a 3K pay raise if I pass. Wish me luck if you don't have advice. T-15 hours. Thanks!

Reddit: Tips for how to plan an open source event

Reddit: Purism seems bad, and Intel TPM is everywhere. What free hardware options do we have?

Thursday 30th of July 2015 01:21:36 AM

Purism was covered yesterday in a thread where it was discussed how it doesn't make much progress in the free hardware area, despite big claims. Since it embraces Intel, TPM prevents any sort of Coreboot support. And obviously open firmware is crucial in any free hardware project.

What options do we have? We seem to be going backwards. Many people, me included, are using old laptops like Thinkpad x200 or MacBook 2,1 to be able to run without any binary blobs. But it doesn't seem sustainable in the long run. It is quite frustrating.

Right now, there are only 2 options:

  • Niche stuff like Novena
  • Some Chromebooks, particularly Rockchip offerings

LXer: The Penguin or the Egg: How To Increase Adoption Of Desktop Linux

Wednesday 29th of July 2015 09:27:38 PM
Dual-booting Windows and Linux really sucks. It’s not because I hate Windows, either. It’s because I feel it should be unnecessary. It’s a half-measure that allows a lot of Linux users to play games or get things done.
