Even though there isn’t any active development on this (last update: 2005-07-09), this is still the best virtual desktop manager I’ve found for Windows. A couple quirks, but so far I’m happy with it. It lets me set up the same keys I use on Mac/Solaris for virtual desktop switching, will switch backgrounds, and even has a text popup of the desktop name when you switch. Its missing some features, but it covers the basics, which is good enough for me.
Word arrives from The Electronic Frontier Foundation that a crack team of researchers – including the Foundation’s own Seth Schoen – have discovered a gaping security flaw in everyday disk encryption technologies, including Microsoft’s BitLocker as well as TrueCrypt, dm-crypt, and Apple’s FileVault.
Granted, it’s possible, but it involves accessing the key from memory during a rather short window.
Holy shit! Didn’t see this one coming (especially since Solaris 10 comes with PostgreSQL, not MySQL).
I think this is good news – Sun has been doing a lot of open, progressive work (OpenOffice & OpenSolaris) and I think MySQL (and its users) will benefit from the acquisition.
But the biggest news of the day is… we’re putting a billion dollars behind the M in LAMP. If you’re an industry insider, you’ll know what that means – we’re acquiring MySQL AB, the company behind MySQL, the world’s most popular open source database.
