Yes, definitely, some software that automatically restores censored content, with an option to generate humorous and/or serious alternatives - extra credit for anonymizing the original content by tracking down and scrubbing the tracking db content.  Plus health, happiness, and peace for all!

Now, THAT would be cool!

How about a good but basic standalone bookmark manager. Ideally one that stored its data in a text or xml file.

Architecture (i.e. protocols and formats) to manage bookmarks independent of browser.  Extend with plugins -- even UI so text-mode as well as browser-based operation possible.  Multi-platform too.

Except perhaps for the core, we write plugins contributing different functionality (e.g. UI for management, different browser backend support, etc.) for this NANY smiley

40hz's requirements get fulfilled by architecture + a small number of plugins. Anything extra is icing!

(We can choose to ship different combinations of the core and plugins too.)

Thanks!

Hopefully I'll meet up with an oscilloscope before too long -- may be something simple for starters...

Does this look like it?

I have an old Heathkit scope I bought at the Goodwill.  It works, but has a time-machine glitch in it (the tops of the waveforms tend backwards) and I haven't found a manual to adjust it yet,

I don't suppose there's anything relevant here:

  http://www.vintage-radio.info/heathkit/



Thanks for the links -- some interesting stuff there.  Saw something about BitScope on the xoscope page -- might take a look at that later.

If you want to maximize the use of software, perhaps consideration towards 3D-printing various portions will get you closer to that ideal Wink

Just beginner-level Arduino stuff here -- just connecting LEDs, wires, etc. on breadboards at this stage.

Curious how the following is going to turn out:

  SmartScope

Do you have access to an oscilloscope?

A git repository with code to check for the originally reported vulnerability and (some of the?) subsequently revealed(?) ones...

test script for shellshocker and related vulnerabilities

The Bash vulnerability that is now known as shellshock had an incomplete fix at first. There are currently 4 public and one supposedly non-public vulnerability.

There is a Wikipedia page now:

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shellshock_%28software_bug%29

One of the sections is "Reported Vulnerabilities", under which there are 5 things listed so far.



The "DHCP Proof of concept Shellshock exploit" link that lanux128 posted alluded to definitely increased motivation around here to patch more machines -- though it looks like more patching may be necessary before long.
114  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: ANDROID: What app do you use to read digital books? on: September 28, 2014, 09:39:41 PM
Tried out EPUB3 Reader via f-droid...although it still feels like it's in its early stages it has the following:

Quote
the app allows the user to split the viewport, creating two separate viewing areas, mimicking the familiar interaction with paper books, where, at the same time, the user can read 1) a footnote and the main text, 2) multiple passages from the same book, 3) passages from different books, and 4) the original text with its translation in another language, on facing pages.

In the case of links, a single tap will follow them in the same window panel, while a long tap will split the viewport into two window panels, opening the link target in the second one. This mechanism makes footnotes (internal links) or other supplemental materials (internal or external links) visible at the same time with the referring text passage, exactly like footnotes in paper books.

If the XHTML files inside an EPUB comply with the naming convention described below, the app is capable of automatically showing facing pages in two languages, turning to the previous/next chapter in both panels simultaneously.

Finally, the user can split the viewport for reading two completely unrelated eBooks.

Another nice aspect to it compared to FBReader and Cool Reader was that it seemed to make use of the contained stylesheet more -- I still use the other 2 too though smiley

Regarding the plausibility of Fedora switching the system shell from bash (e.g. to dash), the following tidbit came up:

Quote
I switched a Fedora box to using dash as /bin/sh, and so far have only
logged one bug for something that broke, and it pretty much deserved
to break (BZ #1146733).

via http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2014/09/28/9

No idea whether that's typical...but note that the author may be an employee of RedHat.
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 10:12:52 PM
Arch seems to have taken the position (at least at some point) of not switching:

We are using bash arrays and lots of other bash features, removing them now is simply impossible. bash it is, and will be.

117  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 09:19:25 PM
I just checked a relatively recent version of Linux Mint (17 I think), and /bin/sh symlinked to dash, so my guess is that Ubuntu still uses dash as the system shell.
118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 08:27:01 PM
According to Gentoo's wiki:

Quote
As some sh scripts may have bashisms in them, it is not guaranteed to work out-of-the-box on Gentoo as /bin/sh replacement.

via:  http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Dash

May be if that's still the case, there will be more incentive to make some appropriate changes...

OTOH, there's this:

  https://bugs.gentoo.org/45735?id=45735

with the status RESOLVED CANTFIX
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 08:19:28 PM
I'm not sure what the current status is, but FWIW at some point Ubuntu was using dash as its default system shell:

120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 07:48:28 PM
May be there will be more movement away from using Bash as the default system shell for systems that currently use it.

IIRC, sometime ago Debian switched away from bash as the default system shell to using dash.
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 05:28:37 PM
IIUC, there are at least two more issues that have surfaced from investigating the original issue [1].  The following mentions CVE ids for these (handy to distinguish among issues):

  http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.security.oss.general/13937



On a side note, looks like there's an FF issue that surfaced in a similar time frame...

Update: didn't realize Chrome appears to be affected too.

This looks pretty serious for folks that still use the old Android Browser (or apps that might use some of the contained code):

Just tried it with some success.

Remember those times when somehow you can't get back to your X session, but there's something running in a terminal you'd like to interact with or see?  Looks like this could work -- a quick test suggests it might work sometimes.

On a side-note, AFAICT, this is Linux-only.

That sounds pretty handy!  Thanks for sharing smiley
