Thanks for sharing this.

I don't do banking via Android apps either.

104  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: BitPay introduces "BitAuth" - New authentication technology on: July 02, 2014, 05:17:01 AM
Hmm, I thought this kind of scheme might be useful in providing a small number of authentication "tokens" (possibly down to one) for reuse across many systems -- but without some of the downsides of existing systems which claim to provide a sort of single-sign-on system.

Dangerously ambiguous label could lead people to mistakenly wipe their hard drive

...

Driver Manager didn’t handle missing firmwares correctly

Corrupted APT sources when / partition wasn’t formatted

All level 1 updates were added

See the post for more details.

Ha ha!  Good one Thmbsup

Thanks -- I think that's almost the same as what I found at github:

The file sizes are quite close.

Am I the only reader here who is utterly confused by this entire thread?

Unlikely.

FWIW, although it required noticeable effort to read for me (he he, getting old), I found the content understandable and interesting.

Not unusual to use the following at least once a day:

Android
arandr
bash
df
dwb
emerge
fluxbox
grep
less
linux (the kernel smiley )
mupdf
nix-env / nixpkgs
pacman / pacaur
sakura
slim
sudo
vim
VirtualBox
wget
X.org

Oops...have I leaked out of bounds, both numerically and OS-wise? Wink

Thanks for sharing.

I failed to locate much more regarding this so I'm left wondering about specifics.  Did you have any luck?

Update: The following looked more detailed:

Don't have experience myself, but found the following:

There's a bit in it comparing wireless charging to using the ordinary means.

Another option, if the USB port on your device supports OTG (USB On The Go), is an OTG flash drive like this one.  It has a micro USB male plug in addition to the regular USB A plug and supports USB 3.0 on the PC side.  You can also buy OTG cables for less than $10 that allow you to plug any USB flash drive into the Android device.

I use this approach sometimes -- on some devices root isn't needed to get this to work.



Am also a FileExpert user smiley

What sort of non-ASCII stuff would you want it to handle?

At least CJK-ish things.

40hz and other interested parties,

I was going to start another thread on the following (and may be I still will Wink), but if you'd like another fun rabbit hole that happens to use KDE, perhaps NixOS would be interesting to check out.  It appears to support XFCE (as well as other things), but KDE appears to be more the default.



I've been using its package manager, Nix, on top of Gentoo mostly with happy results, but am also testing NixOS via VirtualBox.

124  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: NIX: KDE anyone? First thoughts. on: June 13, 2014, 12:54:48 AM
BTW, aren't there also the Window Manager -> Keyboard and Window Manager Tweaks -> Accessibility -> Key used to grab and move windows sections?  Perhaps there are other nooks that contain keyboard-related things...IIRC, it's no better in most other non-XFCE things.



I wonder why more desktop environments/managers/etc. don't go for using the Windows key to stay out of application key usage territory...seems like such a nice solution.

Had some success building Vault 3.

May be there's an easier way, but here it consisted of:

1. Download the source and extract it
2. In Eclipse, File -> Import -> General -> Existing Projects into Workspace -- removed check from paid version and chose to copy projects into workspace (note the error)
3. Visit the Vault 3 tree's Properties -> Java Build Path -> Libraries tab and note down all of the missing jar files
4. Open a terminal and navigate to the CommonCode directory in the workspace, then build CommonCode.jar by issuing the 'ant' command.  The result should be CommonCode.jar in the deploy subdirectory.
5. Use an appropriate search engine (and check your local file system) to obtain/locate local copies of the other missing jars
6. Update the Libraries tab from an earlier step regarding the now-should-not-be-missing jar locations (for CommonCode.jar select the location corresponding to the result of the previous step)
7. Have an appropriate (real or virtual) device ready, and choose Run from the Run menu (and if necessary specify Android Application or some such).



Below are details regarding the jars:
