There is a new KDE Slimbook available as from today. The KDE Slimbook II comes with CPUs that are 15% faster and RAM that is also faster than the prior version by 33%. The dual hard drive bay gives you room for a second hard disk, and its bigger multi-touch touchpad supports gestures and clicks.

The larger antennas give you better WiFi reception and a wider range and, to top it all, for a short period of time, you can buy it cheaper than the KDE Slimbook I.

Oh, there's a meetup about at today. I could go there after work.

I'll be in next week for work. Is there any event/meeting I cannot miss?

Want to try out Plasma Mobile? We have an ISO you can use. Try it using VirtualBox, QEMU or a real device and send us feedback.

Note that this image is prepared for x86-64-based devices, so it probably will NOT work on your phone (unless you have a very special phone). Remember: This is preview software, so it is not ready for production yet and we can guarantee things WILL break.

Thanks, after the courses I'll try to read books indeed! I'm not ready to understand the German part yet :-)

I'm looking at resources to learn German, thanks!

I want to learn since I was 14. However I never had the strength to put myself 100% on this.

But here I am, trying again! Do you have any resource to suggest? I'm listening at "Deutsch - warum night?" podcast by Deutsche Welle, but I also have Assimil's book.

TIL: you can setup undertow to print full HTTP requests/responses in server.log. very useful when you cannot use mitmproxy/wireshark

More on the Intel ME: researchers at F-Secure have revealed another weakness in Intel's management firmware that could allow an attacker with brief physical access to PCs to gain persistent remote access to the system:

Check out Plasma 5.12 LTS - look forward to a beautiful unified desktop, amazingly attractive widgets and more speed and stability.

What do you reply to your friends when they say "I don't care if Google/Facebook/X knows everything about me as they are the same as meddler neighbours".

How's even possible people are so used to sell their life details? And for free too?

Downloading and executing arbitrary (and likely non-free) programs in your web browser was a bad idea before Meltdown/Spectre; that hasn't changed.
