Reddit: Got my dads laptop to finally work.

57 min 31 sec ago

A Macbook 2,1 with Libreboot and Debian unstable installed. It works pretty well with xfce and 4 GB of ram. I am pretty happy with how well it works for an older computer.

Reddit: Forensic delete

59 min 4 sec ago

Hey has anyone written a version of rm that writes over things 7 times before marking them deleted? I know it wouldn't be too difficult to write a script that does this. But I'd rather not try to reinvent the wheel. I want to use this new version of rm on my private email server.

Reddit: Is WINE good enough for gaming?

1 hour 58 min ago

~~Months ago, back around April, I jumped ship to Linux, eventually having to jump back to it literally for nothing but game support. I loved Linux from the start, but majority of game developers don’t, unfortunately. Anyway, I’m here to ask if WINE can run (recent) things well without much issues and such? Like ReDoom, for example. ~~

EDIT: I’m an idiot and I just remembered about passthrough on VM’s.

Reddit: What is the ethical difference between DRM encryption and security(SSL and PGP) encryption.

3 hours 10 min ago

Around these parts we love or PGP and SSL, but hate that confounded DRM. I am the same, but if I were asked by the MPAA why we can have encryption, but they can't what would I say. What is the fundamental difference between them in the eyes of the free software community.

Reddit: Archiving LinuxJournal?

5 hours 18 min ago

I'm no good at really scripting things of this sort, but I had an idea and wanted feedback on feasibility.

Is there perhaps an easy way to download or somehow archive LinuxJournal? My idea is to download the articles in some sort of simple, static HTML format and post them to S3 - making a website that mimics LinuxJournal, but is simply a static archive.

I'm familiar enough with AWS and web hosting that I think I could make this work, but I'm not a web dev guru and don't really know how to download to the point of making a site that would require minimal manual interaction before posting to a web-browsable AWS bucket.

Feel free to yuck it up if this is a ridiculous idea, but it's been floating around in my head for a few weeks - and LJ has been such a great resource for me, I figure it's worth a shot bringing it up to the community.
