Is it just me...

WebSite

Is it just me or is tuxmachines.org slowing down?

Not the stories or reviews, but downloading any page or story. At work its worse than at home but in the last 2-3 weeks, slow city.

Any one else finding this?

Most, if not all, other sites I've bookmarked just flash onto the screen in seconds. tuxmachines.org at work takes about 1 minute and about 45 seconds at home.

Just an observation, no critisism implied.

New theme...

The new theme looks great.

Unfortunatly still slow. Won't stop me from visiting though.

Cheers,

re: slow?

I think the google ads are slowing things down a bit, and visitors are increasing. My pipe is being stretched to its limits I'm afraid. But I can't afford to move. I received two whole donations in the last year and no one is clicking the google ads.

I wonder if the new theme is slowing it down some as well? I'll change back when I have the time in the next few days and see if that help.

Edit: How's this theme? I think it's one of the lightest available for drupal.

Security News

  • Report: Linux security must be upgraded to protect future tech
    The summit was used to expose a number of flaws in Linux's design that make it increasingly unsuitable to power modern devices. Linux is the operating system that runs most of the modern world. It is behind everything from web servers and supercomputers to mobile phones. Increasingly, it's also being used to run connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including products like cars and intelligent robots.
  • security things in Linux v4.6
    Hector Marco-Gisbert removed a long-standing limitation to mmap ASLR on 32-bit x86, where setting an unlimited stack (e.g. “ulimit -s unlimited“) would turn off mmap ASLR (which provided a way to bypass ASLR when executing setuid processes). Given that ASLR entropy can now be controlled directly (see the v4.5 post), and that the cases where this created an actual problem are very rare, means that if a system sees collisions between unlimited stack and mmap ASLR, they can just adjust the 32-bit ASLR entropy instead.
