8 Insanely Addictive Multi-Platform Open Source Simulation Games

TuxMachines - Mon, 2017-07-24 23:54

Simulation video games (“Sims”) describe a wide range of video games, generally designed to closely emulate real life activities. Examples of this genre include operating a copy of a real-life vehicle, or participating in recreating historical events. Sims differ from other PC games in that their raison d’être isn’t always to entertain, at least not primarily. Simulation games remain popular among gamers, offering players the experience of the real world.

Alexa, but for the Linux terminal?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-07-24 23:38

Hello! I'm working on a project that's Linux-based, and I'm looking for something like Alexa, but which I can interact with via text in the terminal. I've done some searching, but haven't found anything that isn't entirely voice-based.

I'm okay with writing some code to work with APIs, but it has to be able to ultimately work entirely with text in the terminal.

Any suggestions you all can provide would be very much appreciated!

  • Yakkety Yak won’t come back: Linux users, it’s time to upgrade Ubuntu

    If you’re running Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak, released on October 13 2016, Ubuntu developer Canonical warns that now is the time to upgrade to Ubuntu 17.04, known as Zesty Zapus. If you’re running a Linux distribution which is a version of Ubuntu with a different desktop environment, such as Kubuntu or Xubuntu, the same applies to you.

    Support for Yakkety Yak ceased on July 20, which means that version of Ubuntu will no longer receive security patches. However, if you’re running Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, you’ll still receive functionality and security patches until April 2021. That’s because it’s a long term support (LTS) release. Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus will be supported until January 2018.

  • Someone Finally Asks Why Ubuntu Has 3 Terminal Apps…

    I’ve often wondered why Ubuntu ships with several different terminal apps installed by default.

    It’s a minor little quirk, granted, and something few people will notice. But a query that has, from time to time, confused me.

    Naturally I presume there to be some differences between GNOME Terminal, Xterm and UXTerm. But those differences are, to my end-user eyes at least, not especially self-evident.

Security: Security Updates, Memcached Bug, and Bug Bounty Program

TuxMachines - Mon, 2017-07-24 21:02
  • Security updates for Monday
  • 70,000 Memcached Servers Can Be Hacked Using Eight-Month-Old Flaws

    Eight months after three critical vulnerabilities were fixed in the memcached open source caching software, there are over 70,000 caching servers directly exposed on the internet that have yet to be patched. Hackers could execute malicious code on them or steal potentially sensitive data from their caches, security researchers warn.

    Memcached is a software package that implements a high performance caching server for storing chunks of data obtained from database and API calls in RAM. This helps speed up dynamic web applications, making it well suited for large websites and big-data projects.

Firefox Stress-Tested Tabs-Wise

TuxMachines - Mon, 2017-07-24 21:00
  • Firefox 55 is ridiculously good at handling thousands of tabs

    Firefox 55, due for release at the start of August, will feature a series of improvements to the browser’s responsiveness when multiple tabs are open.

    This work is part of something called Quantum Flow, a Mozilla engineering project to fine-tune and tweak the browser’s overall performance.

  • The New Firefox and Ridiculous Numbers of Tabs

    I've got a Firefox profile with 1691 tabs.

    I started trying to write down why, but gave up for now. It was becoming an overly long exploration of product design and the future of the web.
