Nicely explains that Linus's Law holds true in Heartbleed's case too, and why there weren't enough eyeballs.
 
Yes, that's my cat Sugar in the picture.

Subsctber-only article link, alas
The bug that rattled the Internet last week exposed the paradox that some of the web’s most crucial coding depends on the efforts of volunteers.

So from today, I'll blog at least once a week.
I am declaring this in public, else I am sure I won't follow it :P

Happy New Year folks!

Today, I am sure I have completed two years of being a FOSS jedi, and using Linux.
IIRC, it has been the only resolution that I completed succesfuly :)

I began my journey with Ubuntu on WUBI, then Kubuntu, Fedora, and now I am settled on Arch Linux on my Desktop and Debian on a USB stick (that I use on other machines)

I think I have fully embraced Open Source in these two years. I started out with asking friends to switch to using Free software, and I still continue to do so. Now I have started learning Qt, and do some Junior Jobs for KDE ;)

This year, I cannot involve myself deeply. As this will be my final year at School, I need to prep hard to get into a nice college :)

But, I hope I'll be back with a bang in 2015!

May the source be with you!

I keep pursuing people to switch to Linux because it is Free and Open Source, but what really made me stick to Linux was the fact that I like to tinker with my system.

I like to play around, break stuff, and spend the whole night fixing it. I like to reboot my computer while the system updates are being applied, just to see if that breaks my setup.

That's really what Hacking is all about.

Here is the post of the week:

Facebook, the most popular social network is extensively used by students at my school. Parents object to its use, as it consumes too much time. But we have a legitimate excuse...

+WhatsApp update asks permission to:

"Use the camera at any time without your confirmation"

#prism #nsaiswatching #stopwatchingus #surveillance  
 
Whatsapp new update requires hardware control to "use the camera at any time without your confirmation" and "record audio at any time without your confirmation". Be aware of what you are allowing to be done with the camera and microphone that follows you everywhere, from your bedroom to the bathroom!

Privacy experts and Android experts: Correct me if I am wrong.

+Andy Burne Thanks a lot for the info.
Yeah, I won't go into the tech-absent cave, but I surely will be more cautious and alert regarding the privacy policies, and about what I post (through any 3rd party application) and do my personal chats through GPG encrypted email.
Sadly, that's all one can do.
