HPR1558: Lunch Breaks

without comments

Back after a year of HPR silence, I'll talk a little about how I like to spend my lunch breaks and how you can explore your workplace. Put down those tater tots, we're going on an adventure! In this episode I'll give some information about my lunch history, ways you can maximise your time, gear you'll need to start short stealth/urban exploration, techniques for finding places to explore, and ways to handle being spotted. If this goes well enough and the audio isn't too garbled, I'll record episodes for the "How I Got Into (GNU) Linux" series. Here are a few links related to the episode. Note that I link to Amazon and Google. I don't necessarily condone or endorse either service, I just didn't know of any better sources for product information.

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
