Linux gives me confidence

,----[ Quote ]
| This something I never had with windows. 
| Confidence in my operating system. What do 
| I mean by this? Well let me explain. Just 
| recently I was doing a remote upgrade of 
| Ubuntu Jaunty to Ubuntu Karmic. Everything 
| was going along as easily as a hot knife 
| through butter. Configuration files were 
| changed, packages were downloaded and were 
| in the process of being installed. Then it 
| happened.
| Halfway through the upgrade. At the most 
| sensitive part where the packages were 
| being installed. The computer was 
| rebooted. This could easily happen to 
| anyone if there is a power glitch and you 
| are not using an UPS. In this case, if you 
| remember I was connected remotely, the end 
| user decided to reboot the computer. After 
| I had specifically told them not to touch 
| it. I don't blame them. These sort of 
| things happen.

| requests to make available some of the

| Naturally we're happy to share with you 
| all, so we've put this page online where 
| we'll upload artwork as it's requested.



Contest To Hack Brazilian Voting Machines

,----[ Quote ]
| "Brazilian elections went electronic many
| years ago, with very fast results but a few
| complaints from losers, of course. Next month,
| 10 teams that accepted the challenge will have
| access to hardware and software (Google
| translation; original in Portuguese) for the
| amount of time they requested (from one hour
| to four days). Some will try to break the
| vote's secrecy and some will try to throw in
| malicious code to change the entered votes
| without leaving traces."
