Synergy, Screen Savers and Security
My employer requires me to use a password-locked screen saver on my Windows 7 laptop, so I was surprised and confused last week when I unlocked my system to see a 'security violation' notification; my confusion became acute when I check my Windows configura...

New Linux installs - What Are YOUR "Must Have" Apps?
I think that every Linux user has their own list of "favorite" apps which, for whatever reason, aren't included in the default distribution. Some of our choices may be driven by work responsibilities, while others make the list for usability...and it seems ...

I spend a healthy chunk of my typical work day analyzing network packet captures.  My primary tool is Wireshark , which humbly presents itself as "The World's Most Popular Network Protocol Analyzer."  (Seriously - if you aren't using Wireshark, go download ...

I can't count the number of times I've listened to someone talking in a tech/geek/nerd discussion and thought, "Dang, they should be a presenter!"  Yeah, yeah, I know, the most common fear is that of public speaking....forget that, folks.  You can do this.  It's an awesome experience, whether one presents at a small local meeting or a national conference.

Ask around; there's probably a User Group of some description in your area, and I can almost guarantee that they'll have an opportunity for you to present a topic.

All I can say is - go for it.
ICON UK and MWLUG are accepting session abstracts. Local user groups (DCLUG, NELUG, ATLUG) are always on the prowl for presenters so you are going to have to do a little abstract writing if you want to do some speakin'. Yesterday I said I would tell you how to write a good session abstract.

Android-x86 and VirtualBox - A Potent Combination
For a "network guy", mobile devices can be really frustrating for one simple reason - unless you jailbreak the device, it can be rather difficult (if not impossible) to dive under the hood and get an idea of how the devices behave at the network layer.  Unl...

Wow - the anchor is right on top of things...as soon as the tremor passed, he's right back to throwing the story to the guy onsite at the USGS.  Well done.

#SpeakerU - Speaker Coaching: It's Worth The Time
OK, so, you've been selected to speak at a conference.  You've spent hours building your slides, you've gone through your outline a dozen times, and you've even jotted down particular words (or turns of phrase) you want to use.  There's only one problem - y...
