The Electronic Text Center | University of Virginia Library University of Virginia Library > Our Organization > The Electronic Text Center The Electronic Text Center (1992-2007), known to many as “Etext,” served the University community’s teaching and research needs in the areas of humanities text encoding for fifteen years. Many of the resources once available on Etext are now available via VIRGO, the Library’s online catalog and the primary access point for all U.Va. Library digital texts and images. In the course of migrating thousands of texts from Etext to VIRGO, we determined that certain resources were not eligible for inclusion, most often due to copyright issues. If you have questions about the location of older resources, please send your inquiry to Virgo Feedback. ▶ How to encrypt (almost) anything It's all too easy to neglect data security, especially for a small business. While bigger organizations have IT departments, service contracts, and enterprise hardware, smaller companies frequently rely on consumer software, which lacks the same sort of always-on security functionality. But that doesn’t mean that your data is unimportant, or that it has to be at risk. Encryption is a great way to keep valuable data safe—whether you’re transmitting it over the Internet, backing it up on a server, or just carrying it through airport security on your laptop. But first, a word about passwords Any discussion about encryption needs to start with a different topic: password strength. A strong password should be at least 10 characters, though 12 is better. If you’re unsure about whether your password is good enough, run it through Microsoft’s free password checker. Encrypt your entire hard drive 1. 2. The easiest way to see if your computer has a TPM chip is simply to attempt to enable BitLocker.

::[FSFLA]:: GNU Linux-libre project Download | News | How | SVN | Other downloads | Artwork Linux, the kernel developed and distributed by Linus Torvalds et al, contains non-Free Software, i.e., software that does not respect your essential freedoms, and it induces you to install additional non-Free Software that it doesn't contain. GNU Linux-libre is a project to maintain and publish 100% Free distributions of Linux, suitable for use in Free System Distributions, removing software that is included without source code, with obfuscated or obscured source code, under non-Free Software licenses, that do not permit you to change the software so that it does what you wish, and that induces or requires you to install additional pieces of non-Free Software. Our releases can be easily adopted by 100% Free GNU/Linux distros, as well as by their users, by distros that want to enable their users to choose freedom, and by users of those that don't. 2014-03-31 - GNU Linux-libre 3.14-gnu: “Freedom Pi” 2014-01-20 - GNU Linux-libre 3.13-gnu

How to protect your PC from Prism surveillance Thursday afternoon, a bombshell dropped: Two leading reports claimed that the U.S. government has been spying on emails, searches, Skype calls, and other electronic communications used by Americans for the last several years, via a program known as PRISM. According to the reports, the Web’s largest names—AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Skype, PalTalk, Yahoo, and YouTube—participated, perhaps unwittingly. (Dropbox will reportedly be added as well.) The report claims that the National Security Agency had “direct access” to servers owned by those companies. Most, if not all, of those companies have denied participating in PRISM, although it’s unclear whether they were unaware of the NSA’s spying, or simply turned a blind eye. According to The Guardian and The Washington Post , the data covered included: “email, video and voice chat, videos, photos, voice-over-IP chats, file transfers, social networking details, and more.” So what can you do?
