What about multi-headed PCs?

I have 3x (1280x1024) displays plugged in a horizontal configuration.

I guess that makes me a 3840 x 1024 display user.

re: multi-headed

teehee. I think that falls under Other.

Wow, cool.

1024x768 maxed out :'(

Well at the moment I am stuck on my laptop, with a monitor max of 1024x768. Crying

Still better than the first laptop my dad got, win95 stuck at 800x600 (that brings back memories)

(then again I like it coz I am traveling a lot with it so need the portability in my system as a priority)

Makes me sad though being a student and I have 4 house mates with flat screen desktops ranging from 1280x1024 to 1600x1200.
Can't believe the best one £100 21" wide screen lcd monitor from ebay in perfect condition.

Then again I am thinking about making a nice gaming rig with the moneys I hope to get from finding a summer job, mmmm... a custom built linux box, still I could just dip into my student overdraft Wink

My latest LCD Monitor is 1680 x 1050. Absolutely love it.

re: Resolution

i would!!

re:re: Resolution

Well, with these 57 year-old eyes, it was a priority.

BlueBorne Vulnerability Is Patched in All Supported Ubuntu Releases, Update Now

Canonical released today new kernel updates for all of its supported Ubuntu Linux releases, patching recently discovered security vulnerabilities, including the infamous BlueBorne that exposes billions of Bluetooth devices. The BlueBorne vulnerability (CVE-2017-1000251) appears to affect all supported Ubuntu versions, including Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) up to 16.04.3, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) up to 14.04.5, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) up to 12.04.5.

Security: Updates, 2017 Linux Security Summit, Software Updates for Embedded Linux and More

  • Security updates for Tuesday
  • The 2017 Linux Security Summit
    The past Thursday and Friday was the 2017 Linux Security Summit, and once again I think it was a great success. A round of thanks to James Morris for leading the effort, the program committee for selecting a solid set of talks (we saw a big increase in submissions this year), the presenters, the attendees, the Linux Foundation, and our sponsor - thank you all! Unfortunately we don't have recordings of the talks, but I've included my notes on each of the presentations below. I've also included links to the slides, but not all of the slides were available at the time of writing; check the LSS 2017 slide archive for updates.
  • Key Considerations for Software Updates for Embedded Linux and IoT
    The Mirai botnet attack that enslaved poorly secured connected embedded devices is yet another tangible example of the importance of security before bringing your embedded devices online. A new strain of Mirai has caused network outages to about a million Deutsche Telekom customers due to poorly secured routers. Many of these embedded devices run a variant of embedded Linux; typically, the distribution size is around 16MB today. Unfortunately, the Linux kernel, although very widely used, is far from immune to critical security vulnerabilities as well. In fact, in a presentation at Linux Security Summit 2016, Kees Cook highlighted two examples of critical security vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel: one being present in kernel versions from 2.6.1 all the way to 3.15, the other from 3.4 to 3.14. He also showed that a myriad of high severity vulnerabilities are continuously being found and addressed—more than 30 in his data set.
