How to Properly Clean All Your Gadgets Without Ruining Them Gotta chime in here about the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It does an amazing job, but you need to know that it's a micro-abrasive. It's like using Comet. I wouldn't personally use it on electronics of any kind, save corroded contacts (for which it's great). Using a lint-free microfiber cloth (or two), first with diluted white vinegar and then with rubbing alcohol gets rid of nastiness without scratching the crap out of your control surfaces. Eyeglass stores also usually have "lens cleaner" cloths that are lint-free cotton with alcohol on them which you can usually snag for next to nothing. finally, [] has (well, had, they're currently out of stock) keyboard cleaning goop if the compressed air and/alcohol don't get all of your Mountain Dew residue and Cool Ranch Dorito crumbs out from under the spacebar.

Hirzberger Events Digital Wallpaper / Strukt To decorate the office space of Büro Hirzberger in Vienna Strukt realised a digital wallpaper that illuminates the walls. In this self-initiated project Strukt was given complete creative freedom by the client, and developed a system to project video and realtime content undistorted onto any surface. The basic idea was to illuminate the black-and-white striped office wall by mapping the architecture with multiple projectors. The program developed by Strukt is scripted in vvvv and is scaleable to any number of projectors and any architectural shape. Several different visualisations have been realised already, amongst them a Pac Man animation as well as moving stripes, and more are in development. The content could also be made interactive, reacting to people passing the ground-floor offices. The hardware is courtesy of Concept Solutions Vienna.

FileZilla | Legal and Technology Articles and Resources for Librarians, Lawyers and Law Firms WASTE again: Introduction What is "WASTE again"? "WASTE again" enables you to create a decentralized and secure private mesh network using an unsecure network, such as the internet. Once the public encryption keys are exchanged, sending messages, creating groupchats and transferring files is easy and secure. Creating a mesh To create a mesh you need at least two computers with "WASTE again" installed. After exchanging the keys, you simply type in the computers IP address to connect to. At least one computer in your mesh has to be able to accept incoming connections, making it a "public node". Every new node simply has to exchange keys with one of the connected nodes and then connect to it. Example of a centralized network The approach of a centralized server uses one or more servers that manage the dataflow for all the clients. Running WASTE with only one node accepting incoming connections basically is a centralized network but as soon you add more public nodes, it becomes a decentralized mesh. Security

How to Create Your First Web Page Note: If you know anything at all about HTML and CSS, don’t bother reading this, it’s a guide for the uninitiated, technophobes, luddites, computer-illiterates, anyone who is more comfortable with a pen and paper than a keyboard and mouse. If making a web page seems like brain surgery to you, then this is the article for you. What you need to know The only prior knowledge I will assume is that you’ve used a computer before, you’re familiar with using a keyboard and a word processor, and you’ve at least seen a website. The Basics When you visit a website (for example the one you’re reading now), you see a page in your web browser (the program you use to access the internet) , containing text, images and maybe some other things like videos, music etc. In order to display a page correctly, the web browser needs to know about the structure of the page, e.g. What HTML Looks Like HTML uses ‘tags’ to identify different parts of a page. Getting Started Next, the page must contain a HEAD section.

Ubuntu Rescue Remix | The Rescue Remix provides a Free-Libre Open-Source data recovery software toolkit based on Ubuntu Ubuntu BurningIsoHowto Ubuntu is distributed over the Internet as DVD image (.iso) files. The GettingUbuntu page has links to the ISO image files, as well as other methods of getting Ubuntu. Before burning a DVD, it is highly recommended that you verify the md5 sum or sha256 sum (hash) of the .iso file. For instructions, please see HowToMD5SUM and HowToSHA256SUM. For the current list of Official Ubuntu SHA256 hashes, see the SHA256SUMS file for the release you're using under (and optionally the PGP signatures in the SHA256SUMS.gpg file); hashes for the older MD5 algorithm are in the same directory. UbuntuHashes currently has only md5sums. Unlike a regular data file, the ISO file cannot be simply dragged and dropped or copied directly onto a disc. To install Ubuntu from a DVD, you first need to burn the downloaded ISO image onto a DVD. A working DVD burner (i.e. Inexpensive "write once" DVD-Rs are a good choice for burning ISO images.
