Microsoft's Complete Data Rape, Dump Windows Now! This list is worth sharing again after hearing people complain about Windows 10 wifi network "sharing" through Outlook, Skype, and FB.  Microsoft is demanding people rename their ssid to name_optout if the don't want Windows 10 to share their wifi passwords with all of their contacts.  What's worse is that all of your contacts will then share your password with all of their contacts and basically the whole world.  That's to be expected from an OS that can be described as "maximally evil,"

Microsoft uses Windows 10's “privacy policy” to overtly impose a “right” to look at users' files at any time. Windows 10 full disk encryption gives Microsoft a key. ... We can suppose Microsoft look at users' files for the US government on demand, though the “privacy policy” does not explicit say so. ... The unique “advertising ID” for each user enables other companies to track the browsing of each specific user. ...Windows 10 requires users to give permission for total snooping, including their files, their commands, their text input, and their voice input.

Get out of Windows now.  

You might also join the open wifi campaign.  Don't put a password on your wifi.

I've never had a password on my wifi and have never had a problem in more than a decade of use in houses and apartments.  Publishers want you to be selfish and afraid of your neighbors, but you should be more afraid of publishers than anyone who might be sitting in your bushes.

The government of Aragon (Spain) has published updates of the open source software it uses for 25 eGovernment services. The updates have been available at the repository of Spain’s Centre for Technology Transfer since late last month.

That's the KDE 3.5 branch maintained by the Trinity Desktop Environment.  I'm running their old stable 3.5x branch rather than their newer stable branch.  It's a little heavier than Emacs but light enough for me and has given me better data continuity than KDE proper. I've written up my experiences with it here,

Happy hacking!

Bloomberg Business appears to have joined the 99% consensus on anthropogenic climate change:

http://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2015-whats-warming-the-world/

Adapting to climate change is going to be disruptive, painful, and just plain no fun.  But it will be less disruptive and less painful if we start sooner rather than later.  The deniers are virtually guaranteeing that when we have exhausted all other options, things will get Really Ugly.  That might be fun for those who look forward to End Times, but it will be No Fun At All for the rest of humanity (not to mention all other species, too).
Climate deniers blame natural factors; NASA data proves otherwise

Why would someone want an NSA infested software to run on Linux.?
As many of you know, Microsoft acquired the rights to the popular online video chat service Skype in May of 2011. Since then, many updates have been applied to the Skype program - but only on the Windows platform. Versions of Skype on Linux are left languishing while the Windows version is constantly updated with the latest features. One recent feature is a new file and photo sharing protocol - which now makes it almost impossible to access pic...

Shame on +The Guardian for having Jack Schofield on Staff  He writes add copy for Microsoft as an article then calls his readers, "brainless idiots", "trolls", "clueless", and other things that should not be printed.  How can the Guardian stand having such a rude and dishonest person in print?  He was supposed to be retired but seems to enjoy what he does.  
Jack Schofield, writing for a Bill Gates-funded paper despite claiming to have retired, promotes Microsoft Office and insults all those readers who do not agree with him

20 Years of Delay Because Private Profit  If it costs too much to avoid hurting people and poisoning food sources, it costs too much to make electricity that way.  Mercury pollution is only one of the costs of coal.

A Round up of NSA Antivirus Cracking/Spying Stories  Security can't be bought from a software owner, no matter how "transparent".  Software freedom is the only way to remove malicious features from your computer.  It is too complex a task for individuals and small groups.  A large, cooperative community with software freedom might be able to do it.   
Remarks on the recent revelations about code and communication interceptions targeting insecurity firms and Microsoft's claim that 'transparency' alone would be enough to assure security

This is why I only communicate with open source (especially GPL) software.  Every time I try to tackle proprietary software, my blood pressure rises with the frustration.  The difference has been like night and day.

*A Good Place for Routine and Performance Service* I bought parts and used computers for gnu/linux boxes here five years ago. It's a great place for computer repair, parts. The owner is friendly, low key, and knows what he's doing. Most customers seemed satisfied. The shop also looked like a good place to build a gaming/media rig. It was filled with exotic motherboards, graphics cards, sound systems, etc. The owner is a gamer himself. The owner is a treasure. I would give the place five stars if it were not for tobacco use which may put people off when they walk in. Don't let it. The owner managed to keep the systems clean by walking outside to smoke.
