Gonna try out Solus
Sounds like a really good transitional distro if you're coming from Doze. NVIDIA support  built in and a rolling release. 64-bit only. Lots of comments on it's stability.
full packagelist

Let us know how you like it. It seems to be under heavy development with constant upgrades. Looks to be pretty popular.   :)

I rally against Windows 10, but there's no reason the people here that use it should miss out.
This post is a day old already.
"   The Microsoft Ultimate Game Sale 2017 starts today (until July 10), and games are not only discounted up to 65 percent on Xbox, but also on Windows 10.   "

There's freebies here too.   ;)

No but ever since I was forced to disable adblocker for this page it almost never stops reloading. Any idea what's up with that?

So, they're mining currencies through our bandwidth then?
If you're botted and are using a powerful system, more than likely. The bandwidth usage itself is relatively low, but the cpu usage is constantly high. (Anything over 60 % constant usage, I'd be looking into, if you are just doing daily routine things.)

Wow! Hackers have really changed since I knew any. Back then it was all about the free flow of digital information in EVERYTHING! No surrender, no retreat. Wha happen?  ::)
Those are ' Urban ' definitions, but have generally been (unofficially) adopted in the IT community.
Yeah, people found out how powerful a keyboard could really be, and their motivations changed. Greed, revenge and base human nature set in.
Have you heard about the  new bot-nets ? Instead of DDOSing a target, now they're using them to mine Crypto-Currencies.  ;)

This one affects CentOS / RHEL / Fedora, and only 64 bit systems - so they say.
(Oh, RedHat is also an NSA partner )

Persistance is most likely in in the Grub, (if it''s loading custom modules,) which is the default Boottloader for RHEL.  It's amazing how many organizations don't protect it.  ::)  But then again, you're dealing with a compromised OS to begin with.  (I have no love for these systems, never did.)

"     Today, June 29th 2017, WikiLeaks publishes documents from the OutlawCountry project of the CIA that targets computers running the Linux operating system. OutlawCountry allows for the redirection of all outbound network traffic on the target computer to CIA controlled machines for ex- and infiltration purposes. The malware consists of a kernel module that creates a hidden netfilter table on a Linux target; with knowledge of the table name, an operator can create rules that take precedence over existing netfilter/iptables rules and are concealed from an user or even system administrator.    "

Thank you.  I just wanted to make sure I heard "beagle bone" correctly.

Beagle Bone pie?  Hmmm.  Don't think I'd like it. ::)
LOL   ;)
(Beagle Bone and Pi are actually two different micro-boards, but I thought the joke was funny. )

Good company and interesting topic.  Take Care everyone.   :)

Beagle Bone?
Beagle Bone Pi
(check out the High Performance Computing thread.  ;)   )

Could keep the cubesat in orbit indefinitely versus a few weeks.
That actually wouldn't be very hard to design. CO2 canisters that are commonly used in pellet guns could be used for  thrusters along with a gyro-compass, like is available on Android, for orientation, and an altimeter. A quick one second burst would probably be able to extend the operational time by quite a bit and the canisters wouldn't add much weight at all.  ;)

Can you please edit the Wiki article then?  It gives the reader quite a different impression entirely:
The Altair was a kit that required soldering skills. It wasn't "Plug and Play", hence not commercially viable except to a niche group of DIYers.
The Woz put out a complete, ready to use system.  ;)

What about illegal aliens?  In space, are the aliens illegal or are we? :o  ;D
Heh, heh, heh.    ;D

Again, for all Hoagie's faults, I'm so enjoying his amazing skill at not sounding anything like Noory.
GNS   ;)

A megapixel =  1,000,000 pixels.

Nerd confession ... I love this kind of DIY engineering stuff.   :-\
+19.5  ;)

Dudes and Dudettes,...

A Rodin coil...

Hunh, that looks to be wound as a mobius coil.  :o

Did he finally get live or is it still a replay?
He's live Doc.            BRAAPS.  ;)

I think they drowned.
About Time.  ;)
That was horrible. I think he picked the worst he could find.

That Mike Spent spot is really something.  I don't think anyone has ever ordered me to "be cool" before.
Even the commercials are targeted to teenagers - of the 1960's-70's.  lol.   ;)


Oh dear.  Where is TigerLily?  The room isn't complete without her. :(
Knapp night, or is Dingle-Dave doing submerging artists (last Sunday of the month)?

All ye of little faith.
Shame, shame.  :P
Pseudo-BRAAPS.   ;)
Hi brig.

good evening Folks.  It is so lovely to hear Hoagie and join you.
Good to see you again gabrielle.   BRAAPS.   :)

Glad it's a rerun, I'll actually be able to get the audio since I'm babysitting it for at least another hour.
He's back on live, guys.

Dudes and Dudettes,...

I have arrived...
