  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Computer security

    I offered on an earlier thread to write a brief discussion of computer security. Here it is. I've made it simple to follow. I can't see how anyone could read this and end up not understanding what it says. Some computers have their hard drive encrypted (which means scrambled with a password). If...

  1. What Linux looks like this month

    Well, on this laptop anyhow. I thought I'd put a screen capture into a thread. I have it in mind that there's a lot of timidity about giving Linux a try and that a thread talking through the pros and cons might stiffen the occasional sinew. Laptop Screen shared on ZimageZ by spot...

  2. Facebook

    I've never noticed Facebook particularly, but last night I was talked into signing up. I had no friends overnight. I now have two. It's the most intrusive site I've ever seen. It wants to know who I know. It tells me who other people know, some of whom I'm familiar with. It wants to tell all...

  9. Choosing an operating system 2011 - revisiting the question

    This is, I suppose, another Linux vs Microsoft thread. I'm hoping we can all step back a pace and not express a preference. What would be more useful is observations and reasons. There is one absolute fact: whatever you're used to is easier than something you've no experience of. If you go to...
