Submission + - Linux Mint 17.3 Officially Released

prisoninmate writes: On the first day of December, Softpedia was the first to announce the availability for download of the Linux Mint 17.3 "Rosa" operating system, despite the fact that no official announcement was made. A few days later, it turned out that the Linux Mint project had a critical hardware issue with their servers, for which the devs apologized, so most of the website and forums were down for at least two days, but luckily the ISO images of Linux Mint 17.3 "Rosa" were hosted on various mirrors around the world. On December 4, 2015, the Linux Mint developers managed to restore everything back, as well as to publish official announcements for both the Linux Mint 17.3 "Rosa" Cinnamon Edition and Linux Mint 17.3 "Rosa" MATE Edition operating systems. Here's what's new!

... or eavesdrop on somebody else's iPhone.

the reason why you can't do this is because Siri communicates in HTTPS, so it is not vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. hence, you cannot eavesdrop on somebody else's iphone

the reason why they could listen to the traffic in the article is because they had access to the root certificate on the iphone itself. you can do this if you have physical access to the phone, but obviously you can't just do this over the air to other people's phones

vim already does exactly this. http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Modeline_magic

it looks like this. (ts = tabstop, sw=shiftwidth) // vim: noai:ts=4:sw=4
      -or- /* vim: noai:ts=4:sw=4
*/
      -or- /* vim: set noai ts=4 sw=4: */
      -or- /* vim: set fdm=expr fde=getline(v\:lnum)=~'{'?'>1'\:'1': */

so using your example: /* MS_VC_INTENT=2; MS_VC_TAB=4 */

if you put on top of your file, // vim: set tabstop=4 shiftwidth=2

then vim will do the correct thing.

how did this get modded up? this is misinformation.

du(1) man page (snow leopard):
          -H Symbolic links on the command line are followed, symbolic links
                          in file hierarchies are not followed.

          -h "Human-readable" output. Use unit suffixes: Byte, Kilobyte,
                          Megabyte, Gigabyte, Terabyte and Petabyte.

df(1) man page (snow leopard):
          -H "Human-readable" output. Use unit suffixes: Byte, Kilobyte,
                          Megabyte, Gigabyte, Terabyte and Petabyte in order to reduce the
                          number of digits to three or less using base 10 for sizes.

          -h "Human-readable" output. Use unit suffixes: Byte, Kilobyte,
                          Megabyte, Gigabyte, Terabyte and Petabyte in order to reduce the
                          number of digits to three or less using base 2 for sizes.

this is exactly same output as man pages fro those two in FreeBSD 6.1

this is man page from debian linux:
              -h, --human-readable
                            print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)

              -H, --si
                            likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024

so it seems to me that behavior of darwin is exactly same as gnu tools.
