What is Heads all about?

Heads is a GNU/Linux liveCD distribution aimed at people who like the aspect of controlling their privacy and anonymity on the Internet. You might have heard of Tails as a similar GNU/Linux distribution. heads was born as an answer to Tails, since Tails is using systemd as an init system and also contains non-free software.

Slackware, Unix, PLASMA and Nethack: A discussion-based retrospective of the 1980s to the 2010s - Pt II

Updated 10-14-2019 at 05:05 PM by Lysander666

Earlier this month I conducted a discussion with a close companion and programmer who I will call M. M has been programming since the 1980s and has been using a host of different languages and operating systems since. Going from CP/M and Unix-based systems at work and home in the 1980s to Slackware in the 1990s and the 2000s, this discussion maps out his experiences and opinions on the world of free and proprietary software, parts of which will hopefully be of some interest. He is not, as far as...

Blog? Ah well - how about firejail?

Updated 03-20-2016 at 08:38 PM by KGIII (Added categories, of course.)

I don't actually have anything to add at this time but I am a bit curious as to what this looks like. It looks to be a bit more feature-rich than the journal at Slashdot, so there's that.

I suppose I should put something pertinent here and I guess it's a good a time as any to mention that I've found firejail to be a neat thing and it's actually kind of powerful. There are some neat things you can do with it - some limits to impose and isolation features that have the power to not...

HOWTO: Set up Modsecurity on Debian 7

There are many places online that explain how to install and perform initial set up for modsecurity on Apache. However, I haven't found anywhere that shows how to do it with the standard Debian packages and that respects the normal apt update process. The caveat here is that like a lot of standard Debian packages, the packages included in wheezy lag upstream by a few versions.
