Posted in Utilities, Windows

TrueCrypt

Have you ever wonder if you data is ever secured? From my experience, in least 50% of the people I know who uses Windows XP operating system, there is high possibility that certain partition of their hard-disk drive can be accessible from the network despite users did not (or intended to) share the folder on the network.

With security flaws unknown, users must be understand the need to encrypt data so that prying eyes have no use of the information even they managed to get hold of the data. They will need decryption to be able to read the information. As such, I introduce you TrueCrypt 4.2.

SUSE Linux 10.1 RC 1

Posted in Linux, Site News

Suse

For SuSE and SUSE Linux lovers, I believe you guys must be glad that Open Source SUSE Linux 10.1 Release Candidate (RC) 1 is finally out for public. Personally, I have been a SUSE Linux user for most of the time. I started off with SUSE 8.2 initally, after recommendation from my friend. At that time, SUSE had not gone open source, so the support by Novell is excellent. SuSE 9.3 was their last release before Novell decides that SUSE will be released to the open source community.
