Linux From Scratch 7.1 Published

h2k1 Re:Everyone should do a LFS install at least once (94 comments)

Ten years ago i was an enthusiast of lfs, and i even made a Makefile for automated build of lfs... It was an extremely fun thing to do, and opened my eyes and made me understand that Slackware was the only prebuild distro that anyone should ever need for home use.

Should Google Earth be censored?

h2k1 h2k1 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

h2k1 writes "BBC is telling that the Pentagon has told Google Earth to remove imagery from militaty bases. Besides that, they show a timeline with some security events related to Google Earth. On the other hand, there are stories about scientific utility to Google Earth.

How could we get the most precise information of the world on this program without someone linking this to posing threats, or in another way, what amount of new information had Google Earth brought to us that was previously inexistent?"
