L4L hosts a Live Chat with the KmyMoney folks

Filed under
Software

Come one, come all! On 27 June, 2005 at 9:30 pm CST, Lobby4Linux is proud to sponsor a Live Chat with some of the DevTeam of KmyMoney. This personal finance application is quickly becoming the “Quicken Killer” for Linux. We at Lobby4Linux have used this application extensively and find it to be not only complete, but pretty to look at not at all difficult to use. The DevTeam of KmyMoney deserve a rousing round of applause for their hard work. Lobby4Linux is happy to host these gentlemen and give them a chance to give us a peek under the hood and behind the curtain of this wonderful application. Please take the time to register at Lobby4Linux.com so you don’t have to wait in line come Monday. We expect a large turnout and we hope to see you there. Remember, this Monday, 9:30 PM CST at Lobby4Linux.com. The chat board is powered by X7 Chat and can accomodate everyone who is interested.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to a technical glitch within our PHP page, the confirmation email you receive when you register will have a blank “from” line. Many email clients see this and immediately deposit it in the junk or trash folder. If you do not see a confirmation email from L4L upon registration, check these folders. We are working to get this fixed as fast as possible.

I would also like to take this time to announce a new staff member of Lobby4Linux.com. Mr Tracy Kuhlman, AKA “Okie” has assumed the duties as Linux Technical Representative. Okie’s broad knowledge of Linux and his ability to communicate on the new user level make him a valuable asset to Lobby4Linux and we are proud to call him a TeamMember. If you get a chance, email him, Okie at Lobby4Linux dottt kom and say hi. Pardon the spam-trap email address. It’s a sad state of affairs when one must butcher the language in order to make a point. Wait a minute…I do that several times a week in writing my blog. Never mind.

Please take the time and drop by Monday night for our Live Chat with the DevGuys from KmyMoney and give Okie a shout when you get time. Both of those things will be appreciated.

Black Hat 2014: Open Source Could Solve Medical Device Security

On the topic of source code liability, Greer suggests that eventually software developers, including medical device development companies, will be responsible for the trouble their software causes (or fails to prevent). I think it’s fair to say that it is impossible to guarantee a totally secure system. You cannot prove a negative statement after all. Given enough time, most systems can be breached. So where does this potential liability end? What if my company has sloppy coding standards, no code reviews, or I use a third-party software library that has a vulnerability? Should hacking be considered foreseeable misuse? Read more

Does government finally grok open source?

Yes, the government -- one U.S. federal government employee told me that government IT tends to be "stove-piped," with people "even working within the same building" not having much of a clue what their peers are doing, which is not exactly the open source way. That's changing. One way to see this shift is in government policies. For the U.S. federal government, there is now a "default to open," a dramatic reversal on long-standing practices of spending heavily with a core of proprietary technology vendors. Read more

The OS LinuX Desktop

Reader Oliver wanted to make his Linux Mint desktop look as much like a Mac as possible so others would find it easy to use. Given some of our previous Linux featured desktops, we know it wasn't tough, but the end-result still looks great. Here's how it's all set up. Read more

A Linux Desktop Designed for You

Desktop environments for Linux are not released ready-made. Behind each is a set of assumptions about what a desktop should be, and how users should interact with them. Increasingly, too, each environment has a history -- some of which are many years old. As you shop around for a desktop, these assumptions are worth taking note of. Often, they can reveal tendencies that you might not discover without several days of probing and working with the desktop. Read more
