Reddit: Security question

Monday 14th of November 2016 03:23:35 PM

I have recently installed Linux mint as main OS. If I leave a hdd unmounted, would that make it harder to be hacked? Reason I ask is I have USB hdd with stored passwords (encrypted partition). In Windows I used to disconnect WiFi, connect hdd, copy password, disconnect hdd, paste password, then reconnect to WiFi! Paranoid I know lol. I know nothing is un- hackable, just wandering how much harder it would be to hack an unmounted, encrypted space on the drive. Thanks

Monday 14th of November 2016 03:00:16 PM

Greenfield buildouts are wonderful and we love them. We get to start from scratch and don't have to worry about compatibility with existing servers and applications, and don't have to struggle with preserving and migrating data. Greenfields are nice and clean and not messy. Greenfields are fun.

TuxMachines: Why We Embraced Open Source For Our Database Needs After A Decade Working With Proprietary Solutions

Monday 14th of November 2016 11:51:51 AM

After investigating our open source options and due diligence, we picked MariaDB as Teleplan’s new replacement e-TRAC database partner. With MariaDB, we realized significant performance improvements.

For example, whereas running one particular daily report would take up to 15 seconds to run on Oracle Enterprise, with MariaDB it was running in under a second. We did not have the in-house expertise to work on improving the Oracle performance and found this aspect much easier with MariaDB. We also received excellent support both in terms of value and responsiveness and that, coupled with a highly competitive cost, makes MariaDB a great overall package for our e-TRAC needs.

TuxMachines: How Capital One is embracing open source

Monday 14th of November 2016 11:23:06 AM

I eventually found out that my friends was fed up, the company wouldn't allow him to contribute to open source. Wow. Even in Silicon Valley.

It made me think about how lucky we are at Capital One when it comes to open source. When you think of a financial institution or a bank, transparency and open source software might not be the first thing that you think of, especially with recent scandals. And for many years, the financial sector has used mostly closed source, proprietary software. This was the case for a variety of reasons, including lack of trust in open source software, the need for SLA support, regulations, and to protect intellectual property.

TuxMachines: A Portable, Accurate, Low-Cost, Open Source Air Particle Counter

Monday 14th of November 2016 11:19:04 AM

If you live in a city with poor air quality you may be aware that particulates are one of the chief contributors to the problem. Tiny particles of soot from combustion, less than 10μm across, hence commonly referred to as PM10. These are hazardous because they can accumulate deep in the lungs, wherein all kinds of nasties can be caused.

There are commercial sensors available to detect and quantify these particles, but they are neither inexpensive nor open source. [Rundong] tells us about a project that aims to change that situation, the MyPart, which is described as a portable, accurate, low-cost, open source air particle counter. There is a GitHub repository for the project as well as a series of Instructables covering the build in detail. It comes from a team of members of the Hybrid Ecologies Lab at UC Berkeley, USA.

  • Building MySQL DBaaS on OpenStack And Ceph Clouds
    With a properly configured OpenStack deployment and Red Hat Ceph storage backend, DBaaS clients merely go to a self-service interface and request the number and configuration of databases they require. OpenStack dynamically provisions the required storage capacity from the appropriate Ceph storage pool. No more manual placement of these database instances on MySQL clusters of various shapes and sizes. This manual exercise was a bit like playing the old Tetris game, trying to fit new database instances into fixed-sized clusters, followed by moving or rearranging them to new clusters when they outgrew available capacity.

7 cool little open source projects that stood out in 2016

In the early days of the open source movement, a lot of the attention was on operating systems, and later on large content management systems. These days, containers are mentioned regularly even in mainstream news outlets. The big tech stories are great, but they miss the other great activity in the niches of the open source space. I've rounded up seven interesting lesser-known projects from the past year. You can see more articles about projects like this in my Nooks and Crannies column. Read more
