Hi Guys!

I need to edit a book, that will be a dictionary. A real one. The issue is that I need some sort of tool or settings that provides for me differently formatted columns. But here is the catch: one of the columns is must be an IPA transscript from arabic, with a predefined table.

Question one: How can I define different language settings within a column, not only formats?
Question two: IPA transcripting - is it possible to define chars preset and use on the fly conversion?

PS: The template is gonna be 4 columns within the approx 4k words dictionary.
Any idea?

Thanks.

I have met a security question that bothering me a little bit, and can be a necessary thing in several cases. Here is what happened. My friend kids are wanted to use my laptop for copying stuff, and I allowed it, but after followed what they are wanted to do - really fallen into my mind that the USB is a serious attack possibility that makes me worrying. Moreover if I put out my laptop on events, and let people plug things onto my machine, eg. I follow "sharing is the best" principle, they can steal almost anything - with a simple keyboard emulator loaded with automated payload, and done. I know that everybody needs 15 minutes of fame, but this can be done under 15 seconds...with USB3 I think needs less. Is there any chance to elevate the security on Fedora, and set extra policy on USB ports, or restrict/control accesses when I leave the machine on the booth unattended until I talk with others? Do you think guys that would be an worthy topic, and tutorial how to stop unwanted tampering? Do we have such article? What are the necessary to-do's suggestions before I put out my laptop on the booth? Thanks.

Hi everyone - I do some translation work, but I need an editor that is capable to automagically replace chars with predefined ones to make IPA transscript - phonetic conversion. Is there any such app that is possible to make such? TIA.

I think I have a strange love for simple things. When I have tried to flash multiple format of images to sd cards and other devices - I wanted to have simple app - that even my grandma can use - click over here, select there, and done. Today I have found and Appimage packaged http://resin.io app called Echer. It's really nothing fancy, just flashing images that the user select, and for the whole app the appimage solution gives no extra dependency, headache. Just click - installed. Yet, still marked as beta, but works for me. Cleanly, since I have it. Here you go, FOSS bonbon for today. Check it if you love simple things.

My new toy, if I would like to know simply from commandline without typing like a machinegun 2 miles of commands and parameters. The app called "climate" - and it has an extended list for various sysadmin stuffs, stats, and more. It's not packaged yet, but the github is available for install.

This is just nuts. If you are science guy with a computer, skilled with coding - you can be pretty happy with this. Maybe some of them can be useful for us too. Check licences. https://techcrunch.com/2017/03/02/nasa-released-a-ton-of-software-for-free-and-heres-some-you-should-try/
