Tech News:


Los Angeles County voting to shift from inkblots to open source


As of 2013, it offered more high-tech jobs than other major markets in the country, including Silicon Valley and New York City. Come election time, however, its residents cast their votes by marking inkblots on ballots that resemble Scantron forms.

LA County is finally in the process of developing an open source voting system, purported to be a flexible, intuitive replacement of the incumbent method.

Under the new system, slated for public use in 2020, voters will indicate their choices on a touchscreen-operated tablet, after which a machine at the voting booth will print and process their paper ballots to be tallied. This is a leap from the ink-based system, which has remained unchanged since its adoption in 2003.


Microsoft to Linux users: Explain yourself


Redmond wants to know Linux better so it can build monitoring tools for penguinistas

“A significant number of Virtual Machines on Azure today are running Linux workloads,” writes Khailid Mouss, a senior program manager for the Azure Compute Runtime. To help those folks Redmond has therefore created “new monitoring capabilities we have just released (currently in Preview) for Linux virtual machines running on Azure.”

“We are NOT trying to sell you anything, we just want you understand your pains in this area,” writes Microsoftie Satya Vel (who does his own emphases).


It’s alive! Microsoft to let Live Writer live on as open source


Devoted followers, including some within Microsoft, get their wish, as eight-year-old blogging tool will survive

Microsoft will breathe life into Windows Live Writer by open sourcing the eight-year-old blog-publishing tool, a company manager said earlier this week.

“We are going to open-source Live Writer, so don’t worry,” tweeted Scott Hanselman, a principal program and community manager for Microsoft. Hanselman, who has long advocated taking Live Writer open-source, was responding to a question about the future of Live Writer in Windows 10.


FreeBSD breaks piping ls(1) output


Link goes to the commit email for the change that broke ls piping, read next in thread for the informative bits.

Not really news but hillarious. It appears to be a problem with libxo being icapable of displaying file names in encodings current locate cannot handle.


Security corner


The bug is in QEMU’s virtual Floppy Disk Controller (FDC). This vulnerable FDC code is used in numerous virtualization platforms and appliances, notably Xen, KVM, VirtualBox, and the native QEMU client.
