This is one of the best xwindows/xorg windows managers ever made. I use this on all my work stations because of its awesome features which include.

* Configurable window tabs.
* Iconbar (for minimized/iconified windows)
* Wheel scroll changes workspace
* Configurable titlebar (placement of buttons, new buttons etc)
* KDE support
* New native integrated keygrabber
* Maximize over slit option
* Partial GNOME support
* Extended Window Manager Hints support
* Slit dockap ordering
* Other minor features

The feature that I use most often are the window tabs, which allow grouping and fast switching like the TabMix Plus extension for FireFox. And the key binding configuration, which is relatively easy to use. Once you have fluxbox configured, it will drastically increase your productivity.

Filed under:

We're pretty sure that he meant "boombox", but regardless, this funky little hack from music enthusiast Gregor Dauth will be making him a lot of new friends at the next break-dancing competition. For this feat of audiophile-DIY, Dauth gutted an old Grundig tape machine, added four 150-watt speakers, installed an amp he purchased on eBay, and flashed it all up with some blue fiber-optic lighting. The end-result? More ass-shaking low-end then you could possibly want.

AMD 64 2000+ vs Intel’s Atom: AMD’s 8-watt processor outperforms Intels Atom

Intel's Atom processor and AMD's 64 2000+ were pitted against each other. And the results were for once in favor of AMD.
In our Munich lab’s duel of the energy-savers, the AMD Athlon 64 2000+ beats the Intel Atom 230 in energy consumption and processing power. Each of the systems was based on a desktop platform. The Achilles heel of the Intel system is its old system platform with the 945GC chipset, while AMD offers a more modern 780G platform. The energy-saving solution from AMD offers more possibilities: it has three times as many SATA ports, possesses better onboard graphics performance, and can also support two monitors. Unlike the Intel solution, an HD resolution (1920x1200) with high picture quality is possible through DVI/HDMI ports. And early information suggests that the AMD Athlon 64 2000+ should cost close to $90.

ISPs Inserting Ads Into Your Pages

ISPs Inserting Ads Into Your Pages - TheWoozle writes "Some ISPs are resorting to a new tactic to increase revenue: inserting advertisements into web pages requested by their end users. They use a transparent web proxy (such as this one) to insert javascript and/or HTML with the ads into pages returned to users. Neither the content provides nor the end-users have been notified that this is taking place, and I'm sure that they weren't asked for permission either."

Firefox Extensions Waiting to Be Exploited

With anything that is open source, bugs and exploits will be found. However, this makes it easy for developers to patch these issues. As they know the code that is causing the problem, and usually the hacker will provide a patch for them that just needs to be reviewed. However, this is a real concern for myself, since I use over 10 FireFox extension.
Firefox Extensions Waiting to Be Exploited - Do you think you are safe with Firefox? In general, I would agree with you. But at the same time, I would also point out that there is a fairly sizable security concern that may be addressed, as effectively as some security experts might like. It's called the Firefox extension. [WArp2Search]
