Opportunities From the Twilight of Moore's Law

Kakao Re:I am a physicist (148 comments)

The only benefit from recent density improvements was cost reduction as it is possible to get more chips from the same wafer. There is no speed or energy usage improvement.

CentOS Linux 6.0 Released

Kakao Re:Hurray for some stable Linux left in this world (184 comments)

Gnome 2: Move the pointer to the top left. Click once on the appllications menu. Click once on the sub-menu and lastly click on the application laucher. New Gnome 3 Shell: Move the pointer to the top left corner. Move it to the Application link. Click once or more until you hit that link. Now wait... Just a bit more... Once the applications menu appear move the cursor to the right edge of the screen. Click on the menu item once or more until you hit it. Now if you are lucky there will be few items to choose from. Else take a long look at the icons list to find the one you want. If it is not there just scroll down and keep searching.

How To Protect Against Firesheep Attacks

Kakao It is not the server load (208 comments)

It is that it makes pages load slower because browsers do not cache SSL content unless the Cache-Control HTTP header is set to Public. When some of the content in a SSL page, like images, have that header set to Public the browser will show a warning stating that some of the content on that page is not secure frightening the user. So what will a site owner do? 1) Use SSL without browser caching and make the site much slower; 2) Use SSL setting some content as cacheable and risking loosing its users or; 3) Send everything in the open making the ignorant user happier?

Adobe Goes To Flash 10.1, Forgoes Security Fix For 10

Kakao Re:Apple provided APIs (320 comments)

Lastly.... despite what the article summary says here on Slashdot, overall Flash performance is quite a bit better in 10.1, especially on OS X. Do your own benchmarking; you'll see for yourself.

I did. In Linux CPU utilization went from 20% to 80%. I want 10.0 back.

Toyota Experimenting With Joystick Control For Cars

Kakao Re:Force Feedback? (609 comments)

The joystick would not directly control the turn angle but the speed of the turn angle change. Much like in an airplane what is controlled is the speed at which the wings angle is changed and not the wings angle directly.

Substituting ssl certificates served to employees

Kakao Kakao writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Kakao (1626933) writes "I'm in a corporation where the web proxy substitutes the ssl certificates like in a "man in the middle attack" for another certificated by the corporation. Can I say the substitute certificate is a falsified one since the site (e.g. didn't ask to be certified by the corporation? And if the corporation is itself a certificate authority? I know I'm in their intranet and I'm an employee so they have the right to know how I'm using my (their) time but shouldn't this practice be transparent in instead of "we won't tell if nobody notice"? Shouldn't it suffice to know which sites I visit and for how long in instead of peek at the traffic? How much local rules affect this in your country?"
