Identity Theft

Cyber Crime is the number one consumer complaint of the last 15 years. The issue gets worse every year. Have you ever had a virus or malware on your computer? If so, then you have been hacked. This is not really understood by most consumers. The fact that even the smallest or ostensibly most insignificant malware is actually a breach goes over most of our heads. When thinking about all the ways to keep your information and Identity safe, there must be a conversation in your family about how this is achieved. We will develop tools and sell a product that can your family do just that. Stay tuned for more information from our website. Join us Tuesdays at 7:00pm for our weekly information sessions.

Ubuntu Developer Calling For Users To Let Go Of 32-bit Builds

In recent Linux news, many major Linux Distributions are calling for the end of 32-bit build Linux distros and software.

Most recent is a Developer from Ubuntu, Dimitri John Ledkov.

In a webmail post, Ledkov stated:

Let me resurrect this thread. In the context of what we should be
doing in 18.04 and what to do between now and then.

In 2018:
- it will be over 2 years since 3rd party ISVs stopped supporting
software on i386, or even never had it officially
- e.g. Google Chrome, ZFS, Docker, etc
- with both desktop and server software developed, tested and deployed
on amd64 only

And in 2018, the question will come if we can effectively provide
security support on i386.

Between now and 2018, it would be logical to limit amount of new
installations of i386, because cross-grading between i386->amd64 is
not something we can reliably ship.
We must continue provide the i386 port, to support multiarch and 3rd
party legacy application that are only available as i386 binaries.

Building i386 images is not "for free", it comes at the cost of
utilizing our build farm, QA and validation time. Whilst we have
scalable build-farms, i386 still requires all packages, autopackage
tests, and ISOs to be revalidated across our infrastructure. As well
as take up mirror space & bandwidth.

Thus the question is what can we and what should we do to limit i386
installations before they become unsupportable?

It really does cost distributions time to keep 32-bit hardware around as well as to build it.

Having 32-bit users doubles the burden developers face when testing their distro updates.

Dimitri closed it out by saying.

The key point here is lack of upstream software support and upstream
security support on i386, rather than actual hardware being out of
stock and/or old.

In essence this would mean April 2021 as the sunset for i386 as the
host/base OS architecture. And April 2023 to run legacy i386
applications with security support.

Regards,

Dimitri.

Interesting to see where this goes.

PC Gaming Now!!!

PC gaming had been around for a very long time. But for many it has been a niche. The console has dominated for decades as the platform for your average gamer. Price point is a huge inhibitor. To really get into PC gaming you need at least a GTX 960 which costs about $200 bucks. A nice set of headphones, a decent gaming keyboard and mouse, a decent monitor – here GamingBuff recommends Asus, Acer, AOC and BenQ, Windows license, XBox PC controller, and you’re at at least at $1000. However, while the barrier to entry is high, the rewards are even higher. Your experience will be more complete as you will have access to far more games than what the console provides. You also have a full blown computer at your disposal which can give you access to more content and more productivity than you’d get on the current generation of consoles. If considered were any better, they’d just be computers. The current consoles are locked down computers as they are.

As your horizons expand you will find yourself enriched in a new culture that provides ample opportunity for growth and learning. You will defiantly become more techy and tech savvy.
If you haven’t done so already, get yourself a gaming computer.
