N.A.N.Y. 2016 / Re: Idea Thread for NANY 2016

Sorry for the vagueness, what I meant was "without source code".

I appreciate the suggestion, but lately I'm wary of apps for this sort of thing without source.  Still, it's nice to see some development along these lines!

May be such a thing exists already, but if not... :)

Doesn't WinPrivacy Plus do some of that?

Don't know :)

Ah...I see.  Thanks.  Hmm...I happen to have a suitable keyboard...

Hmm...is there a practical way to get one of those on to a physical keyboard?

On a side note, have you found a good place to look for security-related announcements?

All I've located is:

  https://forum.manjar.../index.php?board=6.0

I much prefer something like:

  https://wiki.archlin.../Security_Advisories

where each individual advisory / announcement can be accessed in reverse-chronological order.

According to:

Onion Omega features a MIPS CPU from Qualcomm Atheros and runs Linux (OpenWrt)

From the way that they're marketing it, and the 'interview' process and the reasoning behind that, I don't know if it will get into the hands of someone that would do that.

FWIW, noticed mention of getting the SONY device rooted:

Sounds expensive and risky :)

But the bottom line is that the tactile advantages or being able to physically handle and lay out cards, separate from what's on the computer screen, is non-trivial.  The physicality offers some unique advantages that I have not been able to give up so far.

Where's my immersive VR environment?

But then, i'm not opposed to jotting things in a notebook while traveling and then TRANSFERRING to index cards.

There is something similar to this mentioned in the collect step:

When you get back to your home or office, empty your notes into your to-do list.

At least there's the idea of there being a capture tool that is with you as much as possible -- presumably so it's more likely that things get captured more often -- and the idea of transferring to some other structure at an appropriate opportunity.



Have been thinking that for some things "double entry" can be a feature.

Thanks for sharing.

Some points that appear similar include:

-Creation of external representation soonish (for lessening mind burden?)
-Index card use (required in one, alternative in others)

On first glance, this feels mostly like the collect/capture portion.

Any thoughts on the other 3 portions of Minimal ZTD (process, plan, and do)?

Developer's Corner / ZTD and transitioning to using GTD
« on: November 06, 2015, 07:11 PM »
Started re-reading GTD recently and am finding:

-Appreciation for certain aspects has grown
-Many seemingly important points didn't stick the last time through

So it seems like it's going somewhere useful.

OTOH, last time through, failed to successfully set up fully and maintain a running system, and this time through I get the sense that the book is almost designed to lead one to ask for help for the implementation stage (specifically from... :) ).  This pattern seems to exist elsewhere in other materials, but perhaps that's for another post...

Anyway, after some consideration of transitioning / adoption and looking around, came across ZTD and Minimal ZTD at ZenHabits.  (I found mention of ZenHabits in the forums here, but not ZTD -- please share pointers if any.)

Still working on digesting them, but so far they appear to be close to proper subsets of GTD with Minimal ZTD being close to a proper subset of ZTD.  Started wondering if trying to adopt a series of well-defined subsets of GTD (or other system) might tend to lead to more successful transitioning.

Any thoughts or reflections?



On a side note, considered adding to:

but ended up posting here per mouser's suggestion.

May be so.  FWIW, when I examined the Fluxbox-related downloads, I had a choice between systemd and OpenRC:

Put forth some effort regarding Qubes.

No real success at booting -- tried on two notebooks.  Also tried their alpha Live USB media.

Might try on a desktop at some point.

Didn't know there was some kind of ARM support for Xen.  Sounds neat!

Congratulations!

Odd about the flaky behavior.

BTW, did you choose the systemd option or the OpenRC option?

Living Room / Experience with Bluetooth Remotes?

Am interested in some kind of small remote for controlling devices including smart phones (of the Android persuasion).  Any one have experience with the likes of the following sort?

You need at least 2 NIC's for any piece of router software. One NIC is for the internet signal (WAN), the other NIC is for your network (LAN).

On a side note, have been looking for boards with this sort of thing for a bit now :)

One thing that came up was:

More expensive, but quite nice (note: AMD CPU):

FWIW, have found a few things at the following too:

Windows 10 Free Upgrade Rules Change, Surface Book Vs MacBook Pro And OEM Tensions

that link redirects to a blank page: http://www.forbes.com/forbes/welcome/

Anyone know how the "Windows 10 Free Upgrade Rules Change" ?

Had similar behavior, but when the original link was pasted in the location area and tried again, it worked here.

Perhaps there's some kind of redirect or cookie check?

General Software Discussion / Re: Unique Solution to Pirates
« on: October 24, 2015, 05:21 PM »
I just wanted to point out that i think its a terrible idea for software to do bad things to a user's computer or files if it suspects that it has been pirated.

I tend to lean in this direction too -- are software developers so skilled that these features might not be buggy/problematic sometimes in unexpected damaging ways?

Perhaps it's not worth your time -- I think Qubes is likely to be around for a while though, so may be there'll be other reasons to try it in the future :)
