Bitmessage From the Bitmessage wiki: "Bitmessage is a P2P communications protocol used to send encrypted messages to another person or to many subscribers. It is decentralized and trustless, meaning that you need-not inherently trust any entities like root certificate authorities. Bitmessage may be used independently or with TOR.

Set up Without TOR After launching bitmessage (the name of the bitmessage binary is pybitmessage) for the first time, disregard any popups and: Navigate to the Your Identities tab Hit the New button and create a few new addresses.

jewel/clearskies Glances - An Advanced Real Time System Monitoring Tool for Linux Earlier, we’ve written about many Linux System Monitor Tools that can be used to monitor performance of Linux systems, but we think that, most users prefer the default one that comes with every Linux distributions (top command). The top command is real time task manager in Linux and the most frequently used system monitoring tool in GNU/Linux distributions to find the performance related bottlenecks in system which help us to take corrective actions. It has a nice minimalist interface, comes with few amount of reasonable options that enables us to get a better idea about overall system performance quickly. However, sometimes its very tricky to find an application/process that consuming lots of system resources is a bit difficult under top. Because top command doesn’t have a ability to highlights programs that are eating too much of CPU, RAM, other resources. What is Glances? Glances is a free tool and licensed under GPL to monitory GNU/Linux and FreeBSD operating systems. Glances Features

Wikiquote MegaHAL MegaHAL is a computer conversation simulator, or "chatterbot", created by Jason Hutchens. Background[edit] MegaHAL was and made its debut in the 1998 Loebner Prize Contest. Like many chatterbots, the intent is for MegaHAL to appear as a human fluent in a natural language. As a user types sentences into MegaHAL, MegaHAL will respond with sentences that are sometimes coherent and at other times complete gibberish. In the world of conversation simulators, MegaHAL is based on relatively old technology and could be considered primitive. In 1996, Jason Hutchens entered the Loebner Prize Contest with HeX, a chatterbot based on ELIZA. Distribution[edit] MegaHAL is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Open source communities meet their users needs Image by I have told the story of how FinTP, the first open source application for processing financial transactions, was born. Here, I would like to present a deeper view on how the community is being built, its structure and governance and why I think people should join such communities. I myself am a founding member of two communities, the first being built together with my friends after our first bachelor party, from a desire to preserve our spirit of joy and good vibes. View the complete collection of Beginners in Open Source articles An open source project cannot succeed without a powerful community that supports its development. While it may seem that the transition from the closed community to FINkers United is destined to be smooth, there are many adjustments to be made. Community structure Communities are groups of individuals sharing common interests. Reasons to join the FINkers United community Why would you join an open source community?
