Running apps and heart rate monitors for Android

I'm planning to get a new Android phone and would like to get a heart
rate monitor to use with it. Does anyone have recommendations on heart
rate monitors, device compatibility, or running/fitness apps
(preferably free as in freedom)?

I use a keepass database synced to my owncloud instance.  I used to
store that on a truecrypt volume, but for varying reasons (before it
was EOL) I took that part out of the mix.

Hardware donations for library

I'm working on a project to get some Linux machines set up for the
Rossville Public Library with some programming tools and possibly open
source media editing. I was wondering if anyone on the list might have
some hardware they would be interested in donating or if anyone knows
of a project that helps to get hardware with open source software into
places like libraries. Also, I'm considering a crowdfunding campaign,
what would you recommend for something like that? I appreciate any
suggestions or contributions, thanks.

Onionshare and Vokoscreen

This onion looks sweet. (Maybe Vidalia?)

It would be fun to do a screencast showing a live gigabit file transfer between two 
ordinary houses (or apartments) in Chatt. You could likely transfer 10 GB in less 
than five minutes -- if you had Core i7 computers on both sides. 


Here is the screencasting software that might work well for that task. 


http://www.kohaupt-online.de/hp/ 


If only there were someone from MAKE magazine in Chugalug who could write up 
a blog post about such an experiment. If only.... 


phil 


Oooh, it would be hilarious to show such a file transfer with an insert video of Windows 7 
booting up on a 2008 or 2009 computer. The 10 GB file transfer might complete before 
Windows 7 reaches the desktop.

Rack full of Linux servers/VMs goes without saying, so we're on-topic.

Dave's Garage - Moving Sale

From: Dave Brockman 
------------------------------------------------------
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

The house finally sold, we're finally moving.  I still have things I
do not wish to move.  Some of you want those things.  Your last chance
to see those items will be Friday evening or Saturday morning, before
they are packed by movers and packed away into storage (and then
secondary move, and wait for me to find time to sort again).

Known to exist:
10/100 unmanaged switches (Intellinet/3Com/AT)
Dell 740 Optiplex units (I believe all are dual-core XP COA included)
Cheap SOHO "Routers" of various flavors (Netgear/DLink/Linksys)
23" 2 Post Rack
Couple of CRT Monitors
Tiny 17" LCD Monitor (makes a nice server rack head-end in a pinch)

If you've been here before, you know literally anything could fall out
of a box and into your vehicle.  Or the whole box.  Anything listed
above is available for free to a good^W^W^W^W new home, donations of
Mojo and other lunchables accepted.

Anything worth more than a burrito is most likely available for
negotiation for cash, BTC (dust included) or barter.  I like shiny
fast network thingies.

Ed, it's really time for you to come pick up your Packard-Hell LP and
HP LC Netserver.  I've been holding them long enough for you... :)

Also to note, as we are cleaning out the garage, I will also be
packing up the bar.  Bourbon and Scotch have been known to fall into
glasses over ice cubes during such events.  We'll say the bar hours
will be from 6-9pm on Friday.  Pizza is also known to mysteriously
arrive during such events, if there are hungry folks to eat it. Reply
via unicast if you need contact information, directions, etc.

Program to download transactions from bank websites

From: James Nylen 
------------------------------------------------------
I've written a program to... you guessed it... download transactions and
balances from bank websites.  Most of the bank websites I have seen are
just atrocious in terms of code and design, and I wanted a system to unify
my accounts.

Here's the code and documentation:

https://github.com/nylen/node-banker

I'd like to start releasing more software, so what are some good ways to
publicize your work?

I use this program with GnuCash (free accounting software) and a GnuCash
web interface that I wrote:

https://github.com/nylen/gnucash-django

This combination doesn't do everything I want, but it is still really
useful to me.  If you find any of this useful, great - please use it and
post issues to GitHub.

The transaction downloader is written in Node.js, which I like anyway, but
it's a practical choice too since a lot of these bank websites require
JavaScript to function properly.  So I think this code is also a decent
example of how to scrape pages using a headless browser.

FYI:Linux and Software Defined Radio

From: Rod 
------------------------------------------------------
Been during research lately into linux and ham radio support.
There have been more than few good linux distros with a ham focus over the  
years.
At least two puppies, a few ubuntu respins, etc.

Just found Kali Linux which seems to be picking were up Backtrack Linux  
left off.
Kali Linux has an SDR metapackage that is worth looking into.
It includes their own fork of Debian's gnuradio which updates to the  
latests sources. As well as GQRX which support several USB SDR dongles.
Including a $20 TV dongle that can be used as a broad spectrum scanner  
that can be used for all kinds of cool stuff.
http://www.rtl-sdr.com/about-rtl-sdr/

While Kali Linux should be in any serious linux users toolkit, I'm not  
sure if a distro that runs as root by default is the best choice for some  
of my fellow hams. Especially the many who are xp refugees mourning the  
loss of their dead os. Though it has some good ideas for the start of a  
new HAM Shack OS.

Vancouver Public Library rated number one in the world

From: Phil Shapiro 
------------------------------------------------------


Naturally, my main focus in moving Chatt library into the international spotlight would be its strong 
embrace of open source.

Subject: [Chugalug] Vancouver Public Library rated number one in the world 



Hi chugalug community, 

Here's some interesting news to think about. 


http://tinyurl.com/l6xp5bg 


Chatt's library has such strong leadership that it's conceivable that the Chatt library could 
rise to be number one in the world -- especially with the way it has formed partnerships with 
groups around town. 


I don't know all the indicia they use to measure "best library in the world," but I do know the Chatt library is firing on all cylinders these days. 


If you're interested in ideas for moving the Chatt library in that direction, kindly contact me 
off-list -- and we can continue a small group conversation off list and involve Chatt library staff 
as their time permits. 


Yes, it's admittedly a "squishy" concept to be rated number one library in the world. 
But it truly is an attainable goal for Chatt -- and would spotlight the city in a great way if 
that were to happen. 


phil

Please refer to the Renesys blog for more accurate information.

Actually, please open your hosts file and add
127.0.0.1	www.wired.com
127.0.0.1	wired.com

If you were intelligent enough to find this list, you are intelligent
enough to find a better source of reading material.

For those not following this in other circles, the general consensus
of actual network operators is that all the instances Renesys reported
on were not globally affecting (most of the "hijacked" announcements
were covered by other announcements, and massive amounts of traffic
were *not* diverted).

Regards,

dtb
