Google ending support for Linux 32bit Chrome browser in March 2016
http://betanews.com/2015/11/30/google-k … bit-linux/

i read it this morning and immediately felt annoyed about the way the article is written.
nothing against posting it here, the news itself is interesting enough.
but:
the mild incopetence displayed by saying ubuntu plus chrome is secure, without mentioning that there's dozens of other linux-based ways to be (more) secure.
and then this:

Is Google making a mistake here? Absolutely not. Quite frankly, it is shocking that the company has supported 32-bit Linux this long. Look, yes, Linux-based operating systems can breathe new life into old hardware, but computers without 64-bit processors are way beyond their expiration date.

shocking is the ignorance of a rich kid who cannot see beyond his own toes and thinks that every 32 bit system is obsolete, and the insult to peoples living in countries with a smaller gross national product than his own.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Having said that, I really wish steam would come up with a 64 bit version of its software. It's just plain annoying that anytime it needs to sync data it wants to lock my entire network stack up while it's syncing. I have plenty of hardware. It's just the 32 bit libraries showing their age.

That little disclaimer wasn't for anything you said pvsage smile I posted a link about a violent game coming to Linux the other day here..
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=10&p=15 and in hindsight, wish I hadn't. I think a couple members felt I was promoting it. I wasn't and actually find it's production reprehensible.

@ohnonot,

I completely agree and what you quoted wasn't even the most 'ignorant' paragraph, the one which follows is the part that stuck in my craw..

Author not named wrote:

If you are clinging to such old hardware, it is time to move on -- you can get a more powerful machine for a few hundred bucks nowadays. With that said, if you insist on holding onto your existing obsolete hardware, you have an alternative; the Chromium browser -- on which Chrome is based -- will continue to support 32-bit for the time being.

Now that's^ not only offensive but really does show an unqualified ignorance on the subject he professes to know roll

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^ Seen the film so many times I got 9/9.  Not proud of it. neutral

I know most people love the Oompa Loompas, but I must have been just the wrong age when I first saw the movie, because they always creep me out.  You know, the way some people are creeped out by moe gijinka or pastel horses.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^^I got 6/9 and I've never seen the film or heard the song (before taking the test). Fill in: "We'll begin with a --in." Reminds me of those overly simplified multiple choice tests I used to hate when I was at school.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Test your networking security:

https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

I'm feeling smug:

YOUR computer has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN NOT TO RESPOND (that's very cool!) which represents advanced computer and port stealthing capabilities. A machine configured in this fashion is well hardened to Internet NetBIOS attack and intrusion.
[...]
All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^Yes the same.
(#! Waldorf with much stuff installed, and an attempt made some time ago to "punch a hole" in the router for Transmission.)
I guess compared with Windows we're relatively safe...

i did it too.
the common ports test tells me that my port 80 is open - no surprise since my web server hangs on the same router.
however, it also complains about me being pingable, and recommends "to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests" - i wonder if doing so would hamper my web server in any way?

I am far from expert here but I believe it is considered good practice to allow ICMP requests.
