That's quite something!

Any one tried Proof of Existence?

Quote
service to anonymously and securely store an online distributed proof of existence for any document. Your documents are NOT stored in our database or in the bitcoin blockchain, so you don't have to worry about your data being accessed by others.

All we store is a cryptographic digest of the file, linked to the time in which you submitted the document. In this way, you can later certify that the data existed at that time. This is the first online service allowing you to publicly prove that you have certain information without revealing the data or yourself, with a decentralized certification based on the bitcoin network.

The key advantages are anonymity, privacy, and getting a decentralized proof which can't be erased or modified by anyone (third parties or governments). Your document's existence is permanently validated by the blockchain even if this site is compromised or down, so you don't depend or need to trust any central authority. All previous data timestamping solutions lack this freedom.

One of my favorite features in programs / applications is the split view...here's a page that discusses it for the program(s) under discussion:

Personal preference is that Ctrl+C behaves as before (context-dependent), FWIW.

On a related note...how does the idea of provided some kind of feedback indicating (via text of some sort -- e.g. some delayed balloon with text) what kind of a copy happened and how it might be changed?  With the ability to turn this off easily ofc smiley

my tablet (res 2560x1600, Octs core, 32GB) and can have infinite sheet size using Papyrus;

Mmm, seems nice!

FWIW, a number of times that I've drawn these sorts of diagrams, I've felt that I run out of space -- and part of the point for me is to be able to take in stuff all at once.  Scrolling or paging is a big no-no for me.  Where's our full-featured VR gear? Wink
84  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Mind Mapping Software - What are the current top players now? on: October 09, 2014, 07:46:57 AM
I haven't had much luck with feel, speed of response, and resolution on tablets so far.  Some day perhaps...

I've been using a small whiteboard for sketching things out and a camera to take pictures for later viewing smiley

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.)

The following seemed to have at least some overlap with what you described:

Thanks!

Hopefully I'll meet up with an oscilloscope before too long -- may be something simple for starters...
92  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Random electronics projects on: September 30, 2014, 04:47:58 AM
Does this look like it?
93  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Random electronics projects on: September 29, 2014, 10:20:01 PM
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
95  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Random electronics projects on: September 29, 2014, 08:01:08 PM
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?
96  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 29, 2014, 07:47:58 AM
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.
98  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).

No idea whether that's typical...but note that the author may be an employee of RedHat.
100  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.
