Careful with tor and Konqueror

Posted 04-11-2009 at 04:43 PM by xri

After playing with tor + privoxy + tork with Konqueror, y finally decided to remove all three privacy programs and go back to regular use of Konqueror.

Prior to uninstall tork, I reconfigured Konqueror for use without tor.

However, after removing the programs I found that accessing some SSL sites was not possible. Finding information about that was not easy this time.

The browsing settings on Kcontrol had cookies, cache and java disabled. The privacy...

Couldn't log in to my isp home page

Posted 04-11-2009 at 02:49 PM by uinseann

A while back, when trying to log in to my isp home page to look at my email (I try not to download it unless it's important .... which I'm not! so there you go!), I couldn't get in! It let me enter my password etc, then directed me to another page which informed me that my browser was not supported and I needed Internet Explorer, or Firefox! Well, I was using Firefox so what did they mean? I noticed they never mentioned Opera?

I asked my wife, who uses Firefox with that other operating...

CD ripper

I have been trying out a few CD rippers. One or two ripped the songs as "ogg" which is fine for playing them on the computer, but I wanted the songs as mp3 for my player. I know this isn't a problem because I now have programs to convert audio to nearly anything. As for time, it's a lot better if I can just rip straight to mp3. So! after trying a few I ended up with "Ripper X". You can't get much easier than this program. So mission accomplished, my "Joy Division" CD's...

My dual boot setup.

Posted 04-10-2009 at 06:50 PM by rich_c

I was reading a blog earlier this week about not paying MS tax or propping up market share claims by trying to avoid buying hardware with Windows pre-installed. This got me thinking about my dual boot desktop, which hardly ever gets booted into Vista. I've used it occasionally to do a bit of 'testing' but apart from that, there are people in my household who have never used it. This despite there being numerous requests for a Windows partition when I bought this particular PC. If I'd had my...

Still not sure after all this time...

Posted 04-10-2009 at 11:02 AM by and3583

I'm perhaps less of a linux newbie now, I've tried a whole lot of different distros and I'm feeling rather stupid as I found out the p.c. I'm using has hardware issues owing to the thunderstorm and concomitant lightning strike which stopped it running on Windows in the first place. Still, so far its survived 18 months since that time and I'm not complaining.

My beloved Fedora core 8 was the last but one distro I loaded (if the red hat fits...) and it worked fine until I upgraded it...
