Protect Google Chrome against Logjam Vulnerability
Determine if you're vulnerable to the Logjam Attack - go to  https://weakdh.org/  with your chrome browser and see if you get a blue bar (good) or a red one (bad). When I tried this Firefox was OK, Google Chrome was not. I fixed this by editing /usr/bin/goo...

Install Pipelight on Fedora 21
IMPORTANT - Pipelight works as a Firefox plugin but doesn't work for Chrome. So we're going to be basing this on Firefox only.

Some Helpful Links - but there's a caveat - stay away from the DarkPlayer Pipelight Repo - it will cause you to descend into dependency hell!

OBI drops outbound calls - setup sysloging to help figure it out
My OBI-100 drops outbound calls usually right at 16 minutes. First thing I noticed there was some stale config on the OBI device. When I thought Google Voice (free) was going away I paid for another VOIP provider. Today I noticed there was some stale config...

OBITalk dashboard that allows for simple setup. I now have setup 2 VOIP providers - Vestalink and Google Voice. 

Strictly speaking no real need for both of them but about 1 year back Google Voice said they were going to no longer support the XMPP protocol that OBI uses to talk to GV. Because of that I went out and signed up for Vestalink. Then, as luck would have it, GV changed their stance. So now I have two providers. 

The default one I can just dial the 10 numbers or I can dial **1 and the 10 numbers. For GV I can dial **2 and the 10 numbers. 
OBi Attendant Announcement. What Happens Next. Press 1 to continue this call. The call will be sent to the PHONE port of the OBi and rung the attached telephone. Press 2 to make a new call. If “Use PIN” authentication is enabled and the user enters a matching PIN, the OBi Attendant will ...

The Samsung BD-P1600 Blu Ray player streams Netflix albeit with one restriction - you either need a direct  (wired) Ethernet connection or if you want to use WiFi you need a Samsung Wifi "dongle". But OK - this player is about 3 or 4 years old and it used t...
