Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).

Configure your mailserver with a "smarthost" option, have it deliver using Authenticated SMTP (with your Comcast account's username and password hardcoded, yes) over SSL on 465, or if you can't do SSL, use 587.

The Network Diagnostic Test was able to see performance problems on my cablemodem connection that Ookla's speedtests did not.
Unfortunately, the number of ridiculous hoops you need to go through to let an unsigned Java applet run an arbitrary network I/O makes it much less useful.

"Open Source Hardware" ?
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. — Inigo Montoya
The Rockchip 3066 appears to use ARM's proprietary Mali T-series graphics. No, thanks.
Quote from the dev lead on the Mali graphics:
"I really do understand your frustration and I'm sorry that this makes life harder for you and similar developers. We are genuinely not against Open Source, as I hope I've tried to explain. I myself spent a long time working on the Linux kernel in the past and I wish I could give you a simple answer. Unfortunately, it is a genuinely complex problem, with a lot of trade-offs and judgements to be made as well as economic and legal issues. Ultimately I cannot easily reduce this to an answer here, and probably not to one that will satisfy you. Rest assured that you are not being ignored. However, as a relatively small company with a business model that is Partner driven, the resources that we have, need to be applied to projects in ways that meet Partner requirements."
—(2014-09) ARM Still Not Doing Open Drivers
From the Kickstarter page, the computer they are trying to fund is going to be based around a Rockchip 3066 SoC.
Will this have the same proprietary blob required to function / use video like the various Broadcom (Videocore in Raspberry Pi) / Marvell chips are stuck with?
If so, it's not actually Free/Open hardware, because that mystery embedded RTOS can do anything to my system at any time. If Mozilla and/or Matchstick are working with Rockchip (or whomever Rockchip licenses their cores from) to fully document the toolchain, I'd be delighted. (I'm not holding my breath.)
I don't just want a Free and open-source graphics device driver, I want the full documented toolchain for everything on the chip.

The accomplished Swartz co-authored the now widely-used RSS 1.0 specification at age 14, was one of the three co-owners of the popular social news site Reddit, and completed a fellowship at Harvard’s Ethics Center Lab on Institutional Corruption. In 2010, he founded DemandProgress.org, a “campaign against the Internet censorship bills SOPA/PIPA.”""

GNU was an interesting philosophy when it was started, but it's not as if it was the only open source ideology or that other open source movements wouldn't have taken hold.
I really don't think it would have.
I think without both GPL, and GNU (especially Readline and GCC), programmers would still be trading pirate copies of compilers from Borland, Microsoft, and Watcom the way people pirate Photoshop today.
MySQL is only GPL because Monty wanted to use Readline initially.
Objective C compilers were only GPL because RMS refused a request from Jobs to let NeXT make a proprietary fork.
To see what people were doing with "open source ideology", look at how well the BSD / MIT licenses served X11, in the pre-Linux era. Every vendor shipped horribly incompatible versions of things.
Look at how people treat OpenSSH. How many people accept money for shipping it, vs. how many people sending money upstream, or patches.
Yes, he sure as hell could use a spin doctor to phrase his statements in a more palatable way. But his position is key, and without it, we'd still be in the "bad old days".
They're expecting 16 under event name "Slashdot". Still standing by for the shirts to arrive, but the lady I exchanged emails with did confirm she got my shipping address.
Linus Torvalds - 3:19 PM - Public
Ok, since I publicly called the guy a f*cking moron, I guess I should also publicly follow up: it does seem Romney was joking.
I'm guessing that it was probably an electrical fault. A reactor cooling pump trip and secondary pumps could be powered from the same electrical buses since they are not considered safeguards equipment
Dude, you always won at SCRAM didn't you?

1. smartctl -AH
Get an initial baseline report.
2. mke2fs -c -c
Perform a read/write test on the drive.
3. smartctl -AH
Get a final report to compare to the initial report.
"mke2fs -c -c" is running badblocks -s -w for you.
If you want more to stare at, you can also add -v , or specify your own test patterns with (multiple) -t options. ( -t 0xCAFEBABE -t 0xDEADBEEF or whatever)
Badblocks does fill a full disk with the pattern, then read it all back confirming no changes.
This does miss flaky devices that, for example are writing over other parts of themselves. (Fake USB flash drives that misreport their size have been known to do this.)
Not sure what a good test would be... first thing that comes to mind is:
- openssl enc -rc4 -nosalt -K 0 -iv 0 <
/dev/zero > /dev/sdXX
- openssl enc -d -rc4 -nosalt -K 0 -iv 0 <
/dev/sdXX | tr -d '\0' | wc -c (should return '0' w/o errors)
