Softpedia's article about Exton|OS 150211

After releasing the first GNU/Linux distribution with Linux 3.18 kernel a couple of days after its launch back in December 2014, Arne Exton did it again, as he just announced today on Twitter that the his Exton|OS with MATE has been updated to version 150211 and includes a custom 3.19.0-5-exton kernel package based on the upstream Linux kernel 3.19.

Slackware-14.1-Squid 3.4.11 Native ACL URL Filtering

Posted 02-11-2015 at 10:54 PM by arniekat
Updated 02-11-2015 at 11:44 PM by arniekat

Squid is a Caching Proxy Server that reduces bandwidth, improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages so you have a faster Web Experience. Normally, if you wish to do URL Filtering, in other words, blocking by Web Address, you should use SquidGuard or UfdbGuard or DansGuardian to do so since they are specifically made to do URL Filtering more efficiently than the native Squid ACL.

Dell UltraSharp UZ2315H Computer Monitor, 23-inch

Dell UltraSharp UZ2315H Computer Monitor, 23-inch

My old monitor, a 2003 Dell 15-inch 4:3 flat-screen E151FPb, started having white-out failures, which were becoming more and more frequent, sometimes minutes apart. Powering it off and on always fixed the problem, but sometimes I had to wait minutes before the power on. So I decided to replace it with the subject monitor.

Data Limits in 2015?

Posted 02-11-2015 at 08:57 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
