Discord With Discourse

by Hawke Robinson — last modified Dec 02, 2016 02:04 PM

The people at Discourse.org should be embarrassed, if not downright ashamed, with their product and founder. Do not use the Discourse forum product or services. I can now recommend people instead consider using NodeBB, NOT Discourse.

Did Google Make a Chrome OS VPN Technology Decision Because of my paper?

by Hawke Robinson — last modified Aug 05, 2016 12:29 AM

I stumbled across something that might indicate that Google (correctly in my view), stubbornly refused to include one of the most popular VPN (Virtual Private Network) technologies, the Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), because of all the flaws published in my research paper by the SANS Institute, and in a discussion with a Google Chrome OS volunteer developer directly linked to my paper as the reason why they refuse to implement this very popular technology that is in just about every other operating system...

I have gladly used Kmail for more than a dozen years. When KDE4 started pushing Kmail2, I lived with the growing pains of transition. But enough already. It has been years and years, and Kmail2 just gets more and more broken with each release!
