http Torrents

Posted in Linux, Mac OS, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

http torrentsThere are several great BitTorrent applications available online. One of the many that comes to mind is uTorrent. Okay, that sounds great – but how about this – an Online torrent application that does not require installation on your system! The use of httpTorrents gives users the option to download files directly without having to use a BitTorrent client. How cool is that!

Basically, you don’t have to worry about:

  • - No uploading
  • - No blocking
  • - No ratings
  • - No wait

It is always 100% download and guaranteed with fast speed (claims obtained from website). Everyone can use httpTorrents, but in the future the download speed and number of simultaneous downloads will be limited for free users. Those who want to use it more than occasionally will have the option to sign up for a premium account without restrictions. So, why not check it out and experience it yourself now.

Ubuntu 9.10 Now Released

Posted in Business Software, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

ubuntu-910For the long awaiting fans for Ubuntu, you must be pleased to know that Ubuntu 9.10 is now available live for your download.

The new operating system is much faster, smoother and more classic (beautiful). I’m already downloading this version to replace my current Linux operating system. The mention of its optimised boot-up speed and the use of ext4 journalising filesystems is just too tempting to refuse.

Whilst I am blogging on this, my other laptop is already in the process of installing Koala Karmic (Ubuntu 9.10). If you are using Linux, perhaps, this is the best time to switch.

Firstly, in terms of boot up, the performance has shown in some tests, that it took much shorter time. Thanks for the enhanced Upstart script written by Scott James Remnant.

With UbuntuOne integration, Ubuntu users can use the service as a storage server and share files with fellow Ubuntu users. 2GB of storage is given as a default. The service allows synchronisation of files, contacts and Tomboy notes across all Ubuntu computers and the Ubuntu Cloud.

WordPress 2.8.4 Released

Posted in Business Software, Development Software, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Web Apps, Windows

WordPress 2.8.4 has just been released to the public. This version is to patch a vulnerability that was discovered yesterday – a specially crafted URL could be requested that allows an attacker to bypass a security check to verify a user-requested password reset.

As a result, the first account without a key in the database (which is normally the admin), would have its password reset, with the new password emailed to the account owner. Although this does not allow any form of remote access, but it can be quite annoying.

Pidgin 2.5.8 Releases and Fixes Yahoo! Issue

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Web Apps, Windows

When I was using Pidgin a couple of weeks back, I realised that it was almost impossible to log on to Yahoo! account. The first thing that came into my mind was, has my account been hacked? I checked, it seems okay. I did not bother to rectify this connectivity issue with Yahoo! as most of my contacts are from MSN. Only a few days back did I checked the update from Pidgin website that Yahoo! has changed its security protocol that disallowed previous versions of Pidgin to connect; therefore, Pidgin 2.5.8 has been released to rectify this issue.

Amongst the changes were fixes to ICQ crash, MSN crash for users with long buddy lists, Yahoo crash, as well as receiging messages from the web version of MySpace IM and signing on to MySpace IM if users have empty buddy list.

The strong recommendation from the Pidgin developers is: Upgrade to this 2.5.8 version if you have not done so.
