PuppEX Tahr NEWS 150112
A new version of PuppEX Tahr 32 bit is ready. Most important changes: I've changed kernel from 3.14.20 to 3.18.2-PAE-puppex (latest) and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "modern" enough. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.1 and Google Chrome. Just to make it possible to watch Netflix movies. With PAE compiled into the kernel PuppEX now can address up to 64GB of RAM.

LOC hilarity

In a discussion on openbsd's tech@ mailing list, it was determined that ntpd-4.2.8 contained approximately 190k lines of code...a count that came up after the 8 vulnerabilities in ntpd were recently announced.

(DISCLAIMER: lines of code are difficult to count fairly, especially comparing one product to another, but this gives a rough "ballpark" idea of LOC).

Let's see if I can put this in perspective. ntpd checks and sets the time on a machine. In a nutshell,...

Another New Toy to Play With

Posted 01-08-2015 at 04:36 AM by brianL

Well, a refurbished one. Although it looks good enough to be new.
A Lenovo Thinkpad T410. With an i5-520 CPU, 8 GB RAM, and a 320 GB HDD, all for £219. Seems like good value for money to me, considering I paid about £199 for a new eee pc 1001ha a few years ago. The T410 has Windows 7 Professional installed, and the C:\ drive (/dev/sda2) is sandwiched between a system partition and a recovery partition. I resized C:\, tried to install Slackware, but had a problem with lilo. So I tried again...
