My team is hosting a virtual conference in October (maybe it's September). I think it is just for current customers. A user group meeting of sorts.

In any case, I don't know if the presentations themselves will see the public web, but I can certainly share here some of what I learn along the way.

Basically any #freesoftware is fair game, although we don't typically do much with #bsd. What would you like to know about? #java #jenkins #configurationascode #cloud #orchestration #linux.

I guess I need to figure out if it needs to be an application we support. We support a bunch of stuff though, so I wouldn't worry too much about that when suggesting topics.

Im watching the #conference #LinuxSucks2020, great as allways and with the perfect description of the actual #LinuxComunity, yes, the same that made the anti #Stallman mob, the same that allows the forceful "adoption" of #SystemD, the same that allows the inclusion of Rust in the kernel, the same comunity that #Microsoft loves.

Intel Management Engine

"Simply said, that means Intel ME adds another processor on the motherboard to manage the other sub-systems. As a matter of fact, it is more than just a microprocessor: it’s a microcontroller with its own processor, memory, and I/O. Really just like if it was a small computer inside your computer."

...
"By design, Intel ME has access to the other sub-systems of the motherboard. Including the RAM, network devices, and cryptographic engine. And that as long as the motherboard is powered. In addition, it can directly access the network interface using a dedicated link for out-of-band communication, thus even if you monitor traffic with a tool like Wireshark or tcpdump you might not necessarily see the data packet sent by Intel ME."

reCaptcha


W3C has published an extensive list of reCAPTCHA alternatives:

https://www.w3.org/TR/turingtest/

W3C is requesting feedback for the document, if you'd like to make suggestions, please open an issue: https://github.com/w3c/apa/issues

"Google wants you to think reCaptcha is the ONLY tool. That way they can get more user data."

People should start to complain to every site which is using recaptcha, because it is just one of google's data hamstering tools (which fingerprints users, gets device information, ip and many more private data).

There are alternatives, don't use this google service!

"In-Q-Tel, the CIA-contracted venture capital fund, is urging Congress to spend more to thwart Huawei’s dominance."

"In-Q-Tel received nearly $490 million in taxpayer funding during a five-year period ending in 2017, representing more than 98% of its revenue, according to paperwork filed with the IRS." - That's a lot!

There is the setting on diaspora that you can automatically "follow back" if someone adds your profile in order to follow your posts.

I'm wondering, I added a profile here and it added me back automatically, hence there was a notification. But, it said "about an hour ago", although it happened immediately. Why is that? What is the reason for the wrong time there?

LibreCrypt


If you have a LUKS encrypted USB stick - how do you use it on Windows?

There used to be FreeOTFE. "FreeOTFE was initially released by Sarah Dean in 2004, and was the first open source code disk encryption system that provided a modular architecture allowing 3rd parties to implement additional algorithms if needed." This project was abandoned 2011, but in June 2014 a fork of FreeOTFE named LibreCrypt appeared on GitHub.

https://github.com/t-d-k/LibreCrypt

LibreCrypt is the only way to read LUKS volumes on Windows. The user interface is the most friendly of the open-source OTFE applications. Runs on Windows Vista onwards. Portable mode doesn't need to be installed and leaves little trace on 3rd party PCs but administrator rights are needed.

It is still in Beta and has issues (see github site). It's interesting to note that there is no way to use a LUKS encrypted USB on Windows PCs if you don't have administrator rights. As far as I know... Show more...
