HPR1557: Encrypting E-mail on Android; Importing Keys

without comments

We have looked at e-mail encryption on both Thunderbird and G-Mail, and that is good, but in 2014 a lot of people use mobile phones and tablets for their e-mail. So it makes sense to look at how we can do this. The solution I am going explore here involves two components, the K-9 Android mail client, and APG, the Android Privacy Guard. I am going to stick to what I know, so if you are looking for help with iPhone or iPad, the best I can do is suggest that you try a Google search. On Android, while many people use Gmail, K-9 is a very popular client for people looking for a more traditional POP3 or IMAP client to handle their e-mail needs. So this should be a good solution for many people. As regards APG, I am not aware that anyone has done an audit of this program. It seems to be the most widely recommended, and is probably OK, but I am making no larger claims for it. - For more go to http://www.zwilnik.com/?page_id=602 Links: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fsck.k9 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.thialfihar.android.apg https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid http://www.zwilnik.com/?page_id=2 https://www.schneier.com/contact.html https://www.gnupg.org/gph/en/manual/x334.html http://www.zwilnik.com/?page_id=602

Podcast #20

without comments

Direct download link: MP3

KDE’s Plasma 5 was launched and a new Raspberry Pi hit the streets, privacy shenanigans courtesy of the UK Parliament, and will Chrome OS or the Apple-IBM tie up prove more disruptive to the tech industry in the long-term? All these stories and more featured in our News segment this show.

Joe gave us his First Impressions of StartOS, whilst Jesse will be looking at RISC OS on the Pi for the next show. And the two of them gave us their hands-on opinion of Google Glass after visiting an Explorer event in London.

In our main segment, we took a look at IceWM, JWM and EDE; three lightweight WMs/DMs, and practical alternatives all, but for whom? And we rounded things off by interviewing Sanel Zukan, the lead developer of the EDE project.

Head on over to our website for full show notes with links to everything we talked about, and for an opportunity to comment.

HPR1556: Screenplay Writing On Linux and Chromebooks

without comments

Writing screenplays for TV or movies is a very precise thing. The industry expects a standardised style and format. ThistleWeb explores a couple of dedicated screenplay writing solutions. Both are dedicated applications that do one job and do it very well. The first is Trelby. It's a GPL cross platform application. It has lots of additional features such as auto completion of character names, summaries and stats. The second application is a cloud service called Raw Scripts. It's a Chrome extension although I think that's just a link to the site. You log in with a Google or Yahoo account. It's like a dedicated Google Docs web app. It does most of the things Trelby does. It also exports to Google if you want. You can share and collaborate with Raw Scripts. It's hosted on their server, although it's AGPL going forward, so it shouldn't be long before you can host it on your own server. I've just started to explore screenplay writing as a writing skillset. Both of these applications make the styling and formating incredibly easy, allowing me to concentrate on the actual story.
