  • I don't disagree that the problems are 90+% rooted in management. And I agree air-gap technology is fairly effective and under-utilized. But those who have worked on Tempest systems also know it's ...
  • There have been such movies. At least two of these are "foreign" relative to the respective president: http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/genres-movies/action/10-best-president-assassination-movies/ ...
  • Not to get too conspiratorial but all institutions view the restoration and maintenance of public reassurance as their first priority. But, yeah, passwords are a problem. I'm not wild about ...
  • They planned to release a movie (The Interview) that apparently satirized N. Korea and its leadership. Personally, I am not convinced that this was the real motive for this hack. Sony is not an ...
  • Yes, I think the specific choice of distro isn't a big deal. More important to: 1. Ensure whatever distro you use is up-to-date with security patches. 2. Use a mainstream browser and keep that ...
  • Early versions of Cinnamon were rather slow and buggy. But the developers have really got it together now. The latest incarnations are fast on a modern CPU, very solid, and a pleasure to use. I'm ...
  • Be very careful. I love IrfanView but sadly it's not properly color managed. Yes, there is an option to apply a display profile. However, if you enable it and save the image, the saved copy will ...
  • Interesting question. I doubt that resolution is a huge factor in power consumption. Hi-res displays are likely based on newer and more efficient designs. Display brightness and other power saving ...
  • A hostname is typically supplied by the sending server via the SMTP HELO command and is easily spoofed. The receiving server might cross-check that hostname with a reverse lookup on the sending ...
  • That may be true and probably is. But the "paypal@ e .paypal.ca" address in the from line doesn't tell you anything about the legitimacy of the message.
  • I don't use PayPal but I apply the same basic rule to any/all emails with links to sensitive accounts (bank, credit cards, brokerage, etc). I always use my own bookmarks and this greatly reduces ...
  • Faststone is very nice but it's not fully color managed and that makes it less than excellent for any serious photographer, IMO. I'd suggest: * Fast Picture Viewer or * Fast RAW Viewer
  • Absolutely not. The from address can contain anything and hasn't been validated. If you analyze the headers, you can probably figure out what server the email originated from and you can see who ...
  • No problems with 4.5 here.
  • I'm as disenchanted as anyone with all of the nonsense that passes for journalism these days. However, Kevin Turner, Microsoft COO has gone public and said they will be introducing "new business ...
  • In some cases, yes. I have invested a lot of time learning CS6 and I really don't want to throw that away. I'm fairly committed to TurboTax and am not aware of any comparable Linux offering. I also ...
  • Some remarks from Microsoft: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/12/11/no_more_free_windows_its_all_about_the_services_guys/ I didn't like or want Windows 8 and I'm not impressed by the Windows 10 ...
  • Probably not. I don't believe Benghazi was a response to a movie either although some tried to convince us it was.
  • Maybe, eventually. Perhaps it's all a good thing. These ingenious hackers have shown us that security drives a need for perfection in software development. If we can figure out how to do that, all ...
