Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Hey guys! So I've been using Linux as my main operating system for quite a while now. To be specific I am using ElementaryOS 12.04 Precise Pangolin. Anyway I enjoy playing the game Runescape, most of you will probably have heard of it and the creators don't have an official client so I am using a community made one. However, I have incredible security paranoia and it is really bothering me as I do not know whether the client is safe to use. Also the fact I am using a Webupd8 PPA for Java is annoying because I don't know if that is safe also.
I think I might dual boot Windows 7 and play Runescape on Windows. Will this slow down ElementaryOS or not?submitted by Glazy7
Deadfall Adventures is an action-driven first-person shooter, spiced up with elements from action-adventure games. Become an adventurer, hunt for treasures, explore unknown regions of the world and rescue the damsel in distress from the clutches of enemies, both earthly and not-so-earthly.
The dirty secret IBM, Microsoft, and other self-proclaimed advocates of patent reform don't want you to know is that they are trolls, too. They have large and highly profitable business units using exactly the same tactics as the patent trolls they hate. The reason they hate the trolls is not because of what they do -- after all, IBM and Microsoft were the pioneers of treating patent portfolios as profit centers rather than cost centers. No, the reason they hate the trolls is because the trolls attack them with the weapons they themselves perfected.

Faraday Technology has begun shipping a system-on-chip dev kit aimed at developers of custom SoCs. The “SoCreative! IV” kit’s baseboard is built around Faraday’s A380 SoC, which boasts a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, a Faraday-developed RISC core, and a high speed expansion bus for interfacing with FPGA daughtercards, and comes with Linux 3.3 and Android 4.x BSPs.
I'm looking for any way to synchronize my Android phone with Thunderbird (Lightning extension).
Fast googling tells me that there is no such program which is incredibly strange, considering that Lightning is a popular extension and there are people who don't want to sync their private information through third-party accounts (or even Internet at all). All I want is proven over the years USB connection, which is 100% secure and reliable. So... anyone?
P.S. If there is no such program, I'm starting implementing this thing on my own. If anybody is interested, let's start our project on GitHub.submitted by SolidLiquid2
