Forgetful penguins love Tasque

Filed under
Software

Do you forget stuff? Do you wonder where the heck you put the keys when they're in your right hand? Do you get in the shower with your socks still on? Do you ever get to the bus stop, and realize you can't recall if you've put on pants? We're the only ones? Really? Damn.

We're willing to bet you can still benefit from Tasque, even if you just need reminders about the things normal people put on their to-do lists.

There are a few other to-do list applications in Linux, but most lack the finesse that Tasque is already bringing to the table. Tasque is a newcomer (it got its start at last year's Hackweek), and seems well on its way to becoming a big player.

Tasque (pronounced "Task") is a unified frontend for a number of backends. Honest to god, we don't mean anything obscene by that. What we mean is, it's a very standard graphical interface that works with a number of to-do and database types to make your to-do list dynamic.In our case, the backend we used was Remember the Milk. We could have used Evolution, or SQLite, but we like Remember the Milk.

re: Tasque

Seems like a hard to install, redundant (i.e. useless) app.

Especially since they use an ONLINE "To-Do" manager as the backend. Why bother with "Tasque" when all you need is a browser to connect to your "task manager" at Remember the Milk? To make it even more useless, there's already Firefox Plug-ins for Remember the Milk.

So maybe the first to-do on Tasque's task list is to find a market that's not already being done to death (and doesn't require compile from source to install - or depend on someone else's web application to work).

Android Leftovers

IT runs on the cloud, and the cloud runs on Linux. Any questions?

A recent survey by the Uptime Institute of 1,000 IT executives found that 50 percent of senior enterprise IT executives expect the majority of IT workloads to reside off-premise in cloud or colocation sites in the future. Of those surveyed, 23 percent expect the shift to happen next year, and 70 percent expect that shift to occur within the next four years. Read more

  • Updating code can mean fewer security headaches
    Organizations with high rates of code deployments spend half as much time fixing security issues as organizations without such frequent code updates, according to a newly released study. In its latest annual state-of-the-developer report, Devops software provider Puppet found that by better integrating security objectives into daily work, teams in "high-performing organizations" build more secure systems. The report, which surveyed 4,600 technical professionals worldwide, defines high IT performers as offering on-demand, multiple code deploys per day, with lead times for changes of less than one hour. Puppet has been publishing its annual report for five years.
  • Over half of world's top domains weak against email spoofing
    Over half of the world's most popular online services have misconfigured servers which could place users at risk from spoof emails, researchers have warned.
