PHP - delete huge directory

PHP is huge helper on Linux systems. You have probably tried to find multiple solutions to delete large directory, created usually by automatic script (temp directory etc). Hereby we are publishing a solution, which can easily delete directory of nearly unlimited files inside. This solution delete files slowly, pausing itself for 3 seconds, where server load is higher than 6 (you can change it anytime). We use this tool pretty often, since it does not hang our heavy-load servers.


$d = dir($mdir);
while (false !== ($entry = $d->read())) {
   // echo $entry."\n";
    if ($cnt>1000) {
        echo "Sleep 3\n";
    if ($cnt==100) {
        $load = sys_getloadavg();
        if ($load[0] > 6) {
            echo "Load ".$load[0].", Sleep 3\n";

Emoji in the movie: Smilies are coming to life! :)

Do you text? Chatting? Are you writing to social networks? Yes, sure! And are you using emoji icons? So it is obvious! Now, imagine that emoji icons, or smilies, are living creatures that live in the world of applications. You cannot imagine? It does not matter! New movie will help you - Emoji: The Movie! Smilies are coming to life! :)

In August 2017, Falcon introduced into cinemas all over the world a completely new animated film called Emoji: The Movie. This movie will take you for the first time in the history inside your cell phone. You think, that there is none? So you'd be surprised!

Waiting for a message

The text message app hides an enormous city called Textopolis in which your favourite emoji live in the hope that they will once come to your message. Every emoji has only one expression, except for a smile named Gene, who just does not want to reconcile it! He wants to be normal - have one clearly defined expression! And so he decides to solve his problem. Normally he will be helped by the HI-5 emoji (high hand slamming) and the notorious hacker Jailbreak.

Can you guess the password?

The three of the smilies are going to take a cell phone route to the cloud to find the code that the Gen can repair. But go through mobile apps it's not a walk through a pink garden - it's a jungle! And so the heroes will get to the world of Candy Crush, where they will be a part of the game. Or they will jam in a variation on the Just Dance - dance game, which they'll have to get out of here. Additionally, there are antivirus programs that do not know mercy and there is a lot of coded obstacles between them.

To make things worse...

The whole mobile phone will be at great risk at one point. The owner wants to reinstall it, that means destroying the peaceful life of the smileys! Only our three can save the entire digital universe before it is erased for good. It is a very challenging task, during which they have to save their universe and still find the cure for Gene to become a normal emoji!

How does it all end? You have to find out for yourself!



Android Auto

Operating your mobile while driving is a bad habit that can (quite rightly) cause a number of unfortunate consequences, especially if you are sitting at that time on the driver's site. On the other hand, these smart machines help us greatly and save our time, for example, when we need reliable navigation that is not available to us from the passenger seat. With new technologies such as Android Auto, connecting these two worlds is even simpler, more efficient and hopefully even safer than ever before. And we do not need even a luxury car that just got out of the line. Just a little smarter mobile will be enough.

While self-handling cars are in development as well as robust testing, massive use is, however not at the table. And there we should focus to other, more accessible innovations, which makes it easier for humanity to improve its travel enjoyment.

To help with this task, the Apple and Google have introduced a sophisticated system that allows easy transfer of selected smartphone features directly to your car's dashboard. Initially, these features featured only in selected advanced models of cars, but today we have a phone that supports Android 5.0 and higher (respectively iPhone 5 and later).

There is no point in denying, the first to launch on its integrated system was Apple. Apple has introduced his CarPlay in 2013, and real use was made one year earlier than in competition - Ferrari FF was the lucky first car using it. The on-board computer, paired with iPhones, has offered a wide range of features, including a Siri assistant that can read messages or navigate among others.

Smartphones - is it a good deal?

It's basically simple, the main job will be on your cellphone, which through free-of-charge Android Auto applications will project or transfer the environment and selected features of your phone to your dashboard display. Everything, of course, adjusted and enlarged for easier handling and manipulation, so as not to distract the driver's attention. The main function includes well-known basic features - navigation, call handling, notes, Google Play Music, and smart assistant that Android users can know under the name of Google Now. Just connect via a standard microUSB and it is.

If your car has the best years behind you and its only functional deck is a windscreen that has two screen wipers, you will not even miss it. Google's goal is to make Android Cars useable in all conditions without a compatible car. In this case, just attach the mobile phone to the holder, run the application, and instead of the steering wheel display, look at the smaller screen of your mobile. It's not the same, but it works well and the offer is pretty clear in these circumstances.

What does Microsoft say about this technological game, which two years ago explored with very similar plans? Hard to say. There is not much to hear about Windows in cars.


Of course, the primary offer of the features mentioned above is of course Google's own, but over time, more compatible third-party applications may appear. For example, you can now use your favourite Spotify streaming service. Remarkably the notes that you can conveniently set up for a specific time as a reminder. These tasks are saved at the same time on the phone, so you will not miss them even when you are out of the car. For new models of selected cars, Google also develops an Android version of Auto that will be able to control other systems such as air conditioning or seat heating.

An important component of the application is also the ability to use voice controls to make it easier to send messages, for example, where Google already offers a proven dictation system in many local languages. Otherwise, when you connect your phone via Bluetooth or a 3.5mm jack cable, you can play navigation instructions directly through car speakers. And such scraps should only grow.


The key element is, of course, still a smartphone. The better the phone and the better connection to the internet, the better everything goes. That is what you need to think about. An overview of the cars currently supported by Android Auto can be found at the official website - Ford, Mercedes, Honda, KIA and Škoda.


Six Easy Tips for Faster Android

Almost every phone works out of the box nicely and smoothly. Over time, however, it slows down until it gets to the border when the user is angrier from it than to make him happy. The exception is not even the most powerful mobiles - even with the ones that happen to be "wobbly" over time, and the owners just remember how they were once lightning fast. Even the most powerful hardware will not be able to withstand the stack of applications and services that the user installs.

Snapping a phone may have many reasons that can be affected, eliminated, or even solved. However, many users lack awareness of the possible causes and how to keep the phone or tablets in good shape.

Possible causes of slow Android

  • Operating system editing - Although the phone has the highest possible technical specifications, the software sometimes lags and brakes otherwise the high-end device. It's no secret that "pure Android" in the way users Nexus phones and tablets know it is just faster than the system the manufacturer has "enhanced" to the graphic superstructure.
  • Little space in the storage - the internal phone / tablet memory that the manufacturer has equipped with is essentially SSD. As such, it is faster than a memory card, but it is a rule that there should be no significant or even complete filling of space. This ultimately leads to a prolongation of access time and, therefore, a slowdown in system, file operations, and overall responses.
  • Application caching - So-called "cache" files create applications to run more smoothly and faster. However, since many programs do not clean their cache, they remain unused in the device memory. This results in space filling and subsequent slowdown of the system.
  • Programs alone - Running programs and their services, which consume a significant percentage or even most of the resources, can become slower systems. Typical shortcuts include some live wallpapers, widgets, and graphical themes. For the high-end phone, it still does not have to be a major problem, but for mid-range devices the performance may be noticeable.
  • Other factors - there are a number of other factors that we will not discuss individually. Here are some tips to improve your mobile phone response and increase system speed. While you may not be able to re-animate an aging smartphone from an aging smartphone, the results of a few-minute effort may be noticeable and visible at first glance.

Install an alternative launcher

Launcher is an application that takes care of a variety of features including, for example, display and all desktop / home screen, application list, animation, graphic themes, and more. Launcher is just the first thing you find when you start the system. Most manufacturers put their own solutions on phones and tablets on the graphical design. Therefore, the environment in which the user is working varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

While default launchers provide a variety of "widgets", they also often consume unnecessary system resources. The reason is a number of features that many users never use, but the launcher is contained in them. Instead of the default launcher, you can install an alternative - basically, it's a launcher application like any other, and it's up to the user to stay with the solution delivered by the manufacturer, or to try another product.

The offer is very broad - Just choose! Whenever you can go back to the original launcher - just change it in the system settings. This is not about replacing the original application, but adding more.

The most popular launchers include Nova, Apex, ADW, Go Launcher, but there are really many alternatives. There is also an original Google Launcher that you can meet at Nexus.

Get rid of live wallpapers and unnecessary widgets!

Also, so-called "live wallpapers" displaying animation on the background of the desktop, or responding to the user's touches, consume system resources. Yes, we recognize that some wallpapers are graphically very successful, but purely from the logic of things just to animation, the phone will need more resources than to draw a static or no image. In some cases, the slowdown is very noticeable - especially if the wallpaper is poorly optimized. We understand that giving up "cool animation" will not be easy for everyone, but you will not give anything. For a good thing, you just have to sacrifice something.

Similarly, there are widgets, a "gadget", displaying some information on the home screen - typically the current weather, meteorological forecast, date and time, or the latest news. Here you have to realize what this widget actually does - usually, in a set interval, contacting a server on the Internet, downloading data from it, which it then processes and displays. Even simple behaviour requires some computing power. Of course, there is a difference if you have one or two widgets on your home screen, or if your desktop literally cracks under the influx of information. The higher performance recipe is simple: remove all the widgets you do not use, including those that have been "pulled out" by the manufacturer of your phone.

Clean application cache!

As we mentioned in the list of possible causes of slow Android, one of the culprits can be the growing cache of applications. We therefore definitely recommend its (best regular) cleanup, which can be done manually through the system settings (Application section, Clear cache button), but with a large number of installed programs it would be a lengthy process.

But there is also a simpler way of using tools that offer buffering of all programs at once. The choice is once again very wide - you can try for example App Cache Cleaner - 1Tap Clean, a more comprehensive Clean Master Phone Boost, the world of computers certified by CCleaner from Piriform, or Cache Cleaner+.

The result of cleaning should be not only to free up space in the phone's internal memory but also to speed up the running of the affected applications. Some programs also offer automatic cache deletion on set days and times, so after the initial setup, the user does not have to worry about anything.

Exit running applications

Some apps or their services run so-called "in the background". They do so either to make them faster to the user, or because they are waiting for some input or downloading data from the Internet. On the one hand, such a behaviour has its own positive side, but on the other hand, of course, it causes not only increased battery consumption but also slowing down the system. Synchronization in progress can be significantly signposted to busy memory as well as processor load, ultimately resulting in a slower response of the entire OS.

In the first place, therefore we recommend to go through the settings of all installed programs and focus on all automatic functions - mainly data synchronization with the Internet, triggering some operations in a certain interval, and the like. Typical behaviour is for social network clients, news aggregators, RSS readers, and similar programs. Always think about whether you need necessarily to the application itself withdrew posts (or warned them), or whether they make do with an update at start-up.

Another way to rotate with running programs is to end them through the system settings. In the Applications section, go to the Run tab, click on the program you selected, and exit the process by clicking Stop. But be aware that many programs have so-called "watchdogs" („watch-dog stand"), guarded by undesirable end and start the process or application again. In this case, you may want to either visit the application's settings or uninstall the program.

Install the memory card

Most phones and tablets support expanded often insufficient internal memory by an external memory card. In addition to gaining extra space, installing the microSD card is also beneficial for another reason: more free space is left in the internal memory. As we said above, the device's internal memory is essentially SSD, and it just does not prove it if you fill it up to the edge. It is always best to leave at least 10% to 20% of free space for the system to work with memory optimally and without delay. A useful tool to find out which folders are the most space is DiskUsage.

When you buy a memory card, we definitely recommend that you focus on the fastest, i.e. the highest baud rate. Here you will recognize the so-called "class", which is usually referred to as "Class". For optimum experience, we recommend not installing cards with a "Class" of less than 6, but better Class 10.

Perform root and install an alternate ROM

While this slow mobile phone solution is one of the more complex, it can, in particular, produce the most fruit on older devices. Rotating the device will give you access to features that you would not otherwise get, so you can do virtually anything you think about. For example, you can remove unnecessary system applications and install advanced memory, processor, graphics, and other resources. However, we must point out that some manufacturers and service providers in some cases consider root to be a violation of the warranty conditions.

An alternative ROM with "cleaner" Android than the manufacturer can (but does not necessarily have to) provide a significantly better response and higher device speed. Selection is, especially for the more popular devices rather broad - begins native firmware, with minor modifications, and ends practically pure system in the form in which it knows the owners of Nexus phones and tablets. The system without the graphical overlay and the applications delivered by the manufacturer usually runs on the same device much faster, but of course does not provide all the features.


WARNING! Are your personal information safe?

The world is still getting out of cyberchaos, after a recent global attack, world counts the damage, experts are revealing security holes. At the same time, they are looking for solutions that would prevent similar problems in the future.

Sometimes, however, there is no need for global cyberattack, to be yourself at risk. In the digital age, on the one hand, we are "enjoying" completely new technologies and devices that change our lives and provide us with new and new opportunities, increasing every day. On the other hand, we also have to count on the growing number of risks related to our security, not to mention that the possibilities of abuse of our digital identities are increasingly sophisticated.

Sometimes, it is enough to call an unknown company with information about your person and data about your working or personal life. Who does they have contact from? Where this information is known about you? How does anyone plan to use it? And cannot anyone come to them, anyone with the intentions that are not good at all? And we have a problem.

What threats are there in the digital world?

Another factor that makes the issue of security important is the form of data. In the digital era, our personal data is not only more easily accessible and easy to exploit, but it also creates new types of data that many people think about us and whose abuse can deeply affect the different spheres of our privacy. Once it was the address, today it's the IP address, once it was the name, today its nickname in the discussion, the email account, we link our accounts from different social networks, many times we have joined private and work accounts, we share information across applications. And add biometric data to this effect - today, quite normal data processing, characteristics that allow or confirm the unique identification of a natural person. We will also be affected by various changes in the future, the opening of banking services for third parties or electronic healthcare. And there is also the boom of virtual reality and avatar that will be ours in the digital world.

And if you still think that the threat of personal data does not concern you - for example, it's just about collecting information about you as readers, website users. According to the definition of personal data, cookies may also be files that websites use to distinguish users. What about that? A solution aimed at stricter rules for the protection of our personal data is already in the world and is called GDPR.

New rules of the universe

The GDPR abbreviates the General Data Protection Regulation, alias the new EU Privacy Directive. It will make significant changes and will not only concern every business, institution, body operating in the EU and working with personal data but also those through whom these personal data only "flow". Accordingly, the GDPR must take effect for all who employ people to record data about students, graduates, applicants, external collaborators, contractors or partner organizations.

The GDPR has been adopted by the European Parliament and replaces the 1995 directive. So, personal data has also been protected so far, but the new regulation reacts to the completely new world that has emerged over the last two decades. Once we did not know what different data we would be able to find out and what we would share with Instagram or Snapchat, we did not buy in big on our mobile, we did not crack data on smart clocks or wearables of devices, there were no services like Uber or Airbnb, we did not have a GPS mobile phone yet, we did not post our location, photos, contacts ... Using the technology, we opened up a whole new universe and set new traffic rules.

Where is the border between privacy and openness?

As the GDPR enters into act in May 2018, all businesses have the last time to deal with the obligations that the regulation brings and respond to them in their own practice. In the case of many who regularly record the data of many people, preparing for new protection requirements will mean months of intense work.

However, GDPR's intention is not only to direct companies to obligations and citizens, on the contrary, without the obligation to protect. At the same time, trying to find a balance between the right of the individual to privacy and the right of everyone to freedom of access to information. You can legitimately ask yourself, "Why should anyone collect, use, and archive data about me?" According to a more recent survey conducted among our customers, up to 2/3 of them would share information about themselves if they get in turn, a more relevant, personalized service provided exactly according to their needs. Similar results are also presented by surveys of other companies within and outside the EU. That's what it is.

Many useful information, findings, and knowledge are the result of processing huge amounts of personal data. Their use, therefore, can bring benefits for us all - for example, in the public administration, where the analysis of collected information on the lives of the inhabitants could provide better, more accessible and addressable services more promptly, the direct impacts we can imagine in the field of environment or transport. And in health care, where more effective, more adequate and more accurate treatment could be provided by disposing and evaluating the amount of data. For example, it will cut off searching in encyclopaedias, time losses and, in particular, health treatment type of trial-error.

However, it is important to know who, how, and which data to collect, access, how they will be stored, encrypted, anonymized, and for what purpose they will be used. The GDPR Regulation opens these questions precisely and provides answers in order to balance both personal and public interest, and to focus on security issues, individuals' privacy claims and open data themes, which will become more and more challenging with ongoing digitization.


Facebook opens its Stories brand

Social networking gives the publishers a new space for content. However, users have not got used to Stories yet.
Facebook pages get new ways to spread their content. The world's largest social network has decided to access the Stories format, firstly used in Snapchat's chat application. This special photo albums, which disappears automatically after 24 hours, will be able to create pages through the mobile app next month. Unlike ordinary users, however, they will not gain access to a feature that Stories will automatically post on both Facebook and Instagram. He is a subsidiary of the first social network, and that format is quite well on it.

There will be no promotion of individual stories, according to Marketingland.com, a spokesman for the company. At the same time, the Web points to the fact that they do not need Stories de facto or any promotion at the moment. Disappearing photo albums are created only by few Facebook users. So any new Story is in a special feed, where new creations of this format are displayed, practically unimaginable. Regarding the location of this feed, Stories are paradoxically one of the first elements that Facebook will see when it comes to launching Facebook. In this respect, Stories have a specific marketing potential. In addition, Techcrunch also outlined how such a multimedia format could be used by brands. He expects to see much more "behind the scenes" of running a company or preparing regular campaigns. In this case, the user will see how a particular ad has been filmed - which in its final form will find the (paid) placement directly in the listing of regular Facebook user posts.

But an important question remains, how many of them really click on Stories, even if the posts of this format are the first thing people will see. When Stories are left blank for most of the time, users with this format have virtually no chance to get acquainted with and become accustomed to their consumption. The exact figures on how many people actually use and view this feature have not yet been published by Facebook, but there are some estimates that will make it hard to compare with Instagram or Snapchat.

"Only eight of my 2,800 facebook friends have posted their 'story' over the past 24 hours. And three of these were simultaneously published on Instagram, "says Techcrunch editor. The experience of the author of this article remains similar, with the fact that 200 of his contacts do not use this feature at the time of article writing. On the contrary, Instagram reports other numbers, directly through its official statistics. Stories use it for 250 million users out of a total of 800 million people who run the app at least once a month. To stimulate a similar interest in Stories is now also trying Facebook. Given that there is not much room for other sponsored content in the newsfeed, the effort to advertise even this relatively outdated format makes it all the more meaningful.


UTP cable (Unshielded Twisted Pair)

In the early 1980s, the first personal computers were launched on the market. All users were thrilled with their own computer on the table. After a while, however, they knew they needed to communicate with others. There has been a rapid development of networks. In many cases, several organizations have used several technologies at a time. This, along with the other cabling used in the building for the transmission of the telephone, the industrial television, has created a clutter of cables. Any changes and maintenance were very costly.

Therefore, a universal cabling system based on a twisted pair was created. Structured cabling features are designed to deliver a wide range of applications.

At present, the most widely used transmission medium in the LAN is a twisted pair called UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair). The basic parameter of this cable is the 100 ohm impedance. In Europe, however, a shielded modification of this cable is used - shielding is carried out at the level of the whole bundle, thus it is a protective film under the plastic cable wrapper. The designation is dependent on the manufacturer for this modification. Some manufacturers call it STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) or FTP (Foiled Twisted Pair). It does not matter what the label is, but it is necessary to realize that these modern cables have the same impedance as UTP cables - 100 ohm. These cables are not identical to conventional STP cables with a 150 ohm impedance and usually have individual shielded pairs. UTP cables can be used for a wide range of currently-used technologies - Ethernet Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, Token Ring and ATM. A topology that is twisted by a twisted pair is a star. The common designation for twisted pair networks is structured cabling. The basics of the 10Base-T standard, which is the modification of Ethernet for UTP cables, was laid by SynOptics, now part of Nortel Networks.

UTP specification

  • CAT 3 - for cables up to 16 MHz with transfer rates up to 10 MbpsExamples of applications: 10Base-T, 100Base-T4, 4Mb / s Annex
  • CAT 4 - for cables up to 20 MHz with transfer rates up to 16 Mbps Examples: 16 Mb / s Token ring
  • CAT 5 - for up to 100 MHz cables with transmission speeds of up to 100 Mbps Examples: 100Base-TX, ATM
  • CAT 5E - for cables up to 100 MHz with transfer rates up to 100 Mbps Examples: Gigabit Ethernet, D + class management: up to 100 MHz, new parameters added.
  • CAT 6 - CAT 6 specification is currently in use, this category will be measured up to 250 MHz. The test parameters are the same as CAT 5E. The operating range is 200 MHz.

Definition of generic cabling for four classes of line:

  • Class A line: Specified up to 100 KHz
  • Class B lines: Specified up to 1 MHz
  • Class C routing: Specified up to 16 MHz
  • Class D guides: Specified up to 100 MHz

Relationship between categories and class depending on channel length

Cable type Class A Class B Class C Class D Class D + Class E

CAT 3 2 Km 200 m 100 m - - -

CAT 4 3 Km 260 m 150 m - - -

CAT 5E 3 Km 260 m 160 m 100 m 100 m -

CAT 6 3 Km 260 m 160 m 100 m 100 m 100 m

Channel lengths include interconnection cables with a maximum length of 10 m.

Recently, the most common transmission medium in Ethernet LAN networks was the coaxial cable (in Token Ring twinned networks). The advantage was the price and ease of execution. Disadvantages are susceptibility to failure and technological limitations (number of nodes, speed). The typical coaxial cable topology is the bus.

In LAN networks, fiber optic cables are used to bridle longer distances. For shorter distances (about 260 m to 2 km depending on technology) multimode (or multidirectional) for larger singlemod (or single-mode) distances. Like UTP cables, optical cables can be used for the full range of up-to-date technologies. Optical cables are also used to connect buildings where it is necessary to connect the outdoor environment, even at relatively short distances. Optical cables will provide galvanic isolation of potential and will not destroy the infrastructure in the event of a lightning strike. A typical coaxial cable topology is a star.

There are places where optic connections can not be used. This could be due to the excessive cost of cable laying or even the impossibility of laying cables. In that case, wireless technologies are used. These have been developed over time to be used as an alternative to local networks based on cable systems. The disadvantage is the price and the relatively low speed so far. This, on the contrary, does not hinder the use of wireless networks to connect to the Internet - here it achieves more than an interesting price / performance ratio.

For long distances, leased data circuits are operated by one of the service providers (usually a telecom operator).

Plug the UTP cable

For the correct UTP cable connection, it is most important to stick to the standards, and these are two TIA / EIA-T568A and TIA / EIA-T568B. Both are equivalent and have the same transmission parameters.

To connect a 100Mb network, you need a UTP cable (twisted pair) that will have RJ-45 connectors. When using a 4-pair cable, the individual pairs are used as shown in the figure. Only two pairs (green and orange) are used for data transmission. A blue pair can be used to run a telephone line while the brown pair is left as a reserve. So, in fact, we only need a cable with two pairs (possibly shielded).

It is also possible to see how individual RJ-45 connectors are numbered (connector and socket). It follows from the description that if we only have a pair with two pairs, we only connect the contacts 1,2 and 3,6.

But if we want to have 100Mb network we need to connect all 4 pairs of cable.

Here are a few important points that should be followed:

  • Cable pairs should break as little as possible. the CAT 5 cable should not be broken over 13mm in length.
  • For the connection of a straight cable to connect a network card to a hub, the same standard applies to both ends of the cable. A different standard must be used at each end to connect the crossover cable to connect two network cards.
  • The cable bend should not be made with a radius less than 4 times the diameter of the cable. For CAT 5 this means that the bend has a minimum radius of 2.5 cm.
  • The maximum tensile load on the cable is 110N.
  • The quality of the link determines the least quality part of the string.

Cybercrime has overtaken the traditional one already in 2015!

Today, we will look at English ONS statistics showing cybercrime overtaking the traditional, device plans capable of detecting mobile tracking, the vulnerability of Apple systems and much more.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has seen an important milestone. According to the Cyber Crime Assessment 2016, more cybercrime was reported in 2015 than traditional (47%). It is not clear how are the other countries suffering from cybercrime, because in many of them computer crime is not as well recorded as in the UK. The Office of National Statistics (ONS) has begun to report cybercrime in 2015, with an estimated 2.46 million incidents.

There are, among other things, criminal teams targeting banks in the UK, which paradoxically have more security demands (tokens, OTPs) than those in America. Criminal teams using bankers such as Dridex and Dyre attack your computer with which you access internet banking and use false forms of banking to use, changing the target account and amount in the background, and then hiding this unauthorized payment from your account statement. Banks in England are very familiar with these malware, so they are targeting the English people to make full use of their potential.

Under the European Union General Data Protection Regulation, which will enter into force on May 25, 2018, companies doing business in the European Union even have to report basically every successful attack.

The report should open the eyes to the security forces to prepare for this trend. There will be a need for cyber crime teams, which should have sufficient knowledge of the issues and information technologies to effectively help victims of cybercrime.


Best Linux distribution with MATE

If you like a classic desktop, MATE is a clear choice for you. But what kind of distribution do you choose? Linux Mint and Ubuntu MATE are very similar at first glance. Today we look at the differences.

GNOME 2 was first released fourteen years ago, but many still do not let it go, and the Windows XP desktop looks like an ideal. Although the GNOME project has already left the second generation of the environment, GNOME 2 lives as MATE. Of course, the new features do not attract much, but the environment is constantly updated and maintained to keep up with the times. One example is the transition to GTK + 3, which has already been completed.

MATE can be found in the repositories of a number of distributions, but only two larger distributions - Ubuntu MATE and Linux Mint. Their developers also play a major part in the development of the environment. In the next paragraphs, we compare the side by side and try to crown the classic desktop king. We will compare the latest release of Ubuntu MATE 16.04 and Linux Mint 18. We will simplify them as Ubuntu and Mint.

Supported platforms

While Mint only supports classic x86 and x86-64 architectures, Ubuntu also offers the PowerPC support used by Apple's old computers. If you have any such device, it is Ubuntu's ideal way to revive it. Ubuntu also supports ARMv7 - mainly Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. We will now compare the most commonly used 64-bit version.

Installation and System Requirements

Both distributions are used by a classic installer from Ubuntu, which is no surprise. You set the time zone, keyboard layout, main user account, and so on. Both distributions also allow you to set your home directory encryption and install third-party add-ons like Flash, codecs, etc. Ubuntu is easy to install, does not offer.

As for the size of the installation media, Ubuntu has about 1.6 GB and Mint about 200 MB more. This is also proportional to the disk space required for installation. In the case of Ubuntu it is 8.6 GB, in the case of Mintu 10.4 GB. After installing Ubuntu, it took 4.4 GB and Mint 5.2 GB. Most users will not worry about this difference. Post-boot memory consumption was between 390-400 MB.

Ubuntu has TLP installed and activated by default to save up to about 30% of the battery, thanks to its advanced power management, thus prolonging its stamina. In Mintu, you can install TLP from official repositories, or you do not need to configure it. So if Ubuntu does not last longer than Mint, there's no magic in it, nor is it Mint's fault.

Packages and updates

Both Mint and Ubuntu use the standard Ubuntu package (currently 16.04) and should run 99% of Ubuntu repositories and packages for them. This is also related to the benefits of all distributions built on Ubuntu - if you have a problem, you will most likely go out of solution. Or ask a forum or Ask Ubuntu where thousands of people are willing to help.

The major difference is in the promotion and release cycle. Ubuntu MATE is followed by the Ubuntu system, with a release every two years with extended support (beware, only three years!) And every six months with new packages and nine months of support. You can choose whether you prefer stability or new software. New kernels are also backed into the LTS release.

The big version of Mint is only released every two years, and it also builds on LTS Ubuntu releases. Support is in this case full five years. In addition, each half-year comes with a decimal version that brings an updated version of the environment, a new kernel (optional) and sometimes new features and a couple of updated programs. But the packet base itself will not change over the next five years.

There is probably no clear answer to what is better. However, if you choose Mint, you have to count on a package / software version for at least two years. With Ubuntu, you can start using LTS and decide to upgrade to new releases with new packages. We are just in the period when the LTS is still fresh, so you do not have to make a decision right between the stability and the up-to-date software.

Appearance and default configuration

Mint bets on its traditional gray-green appearance, Ubuntu turns black-green. Of course, you can change the look. The layout of the interface differs significantly. Ubuntu is faithful to the original GNOME 2 layout, where you have an application menu and a notification area and a list of open windows below. Mint has only one lower bar that contains all of that.

The Ubuntu application offer is simple to use. Mint uses a much more sophisticated MATE menu, which has the advantage of searching and running applications quickly. With the MATE menu it does not look very good and it is not sure whether it will last for the future. In any case, MATE can be configured very well in both distributions, and you can combine and position the panels as you want. So, by default, I would not choose the distribution.

Let's also add that both distributions contain good welcome screens that introduce distribution, help with driver installation, first steps, etc. They also point to relevant resources and community support. Though it's a trifle, but newcomers will make it easier to use.

Software and its management

We will not discuss the default program report here. On the one hand, it is similar and, on the other hand, there is nothing easier than uninstalling or installing the program. Let's take a look at what tools are available for package management.

Mint has been using its own application catalog for some time, partly based on the Ubuntu Software Center. It provides quite a bit of information about programs (including screenshots), user ratings, searches, etc. The impact is a bit spoiled by not a very fast response and occasional instability, but it is not critical. For advanced users, Mint has a familiar Synaptic tool that can do more advanced things with each package.

Ubuntu is surprised in this respect. It does not offer any classical application catalog or package manager. Instead, it has its own Software Boutique tool, which offers around hundred of the best apps, of course categorized. This is not just software from official repositories. If you choose to install foreign software, Software Boutique will do everything you need, add a repository, etc. Excellent thing, especially for Linux beginners. If you want to have access to a complete menu of software, you have to install another tool - Software Boutique offers several. Or use a terminal, of course. Installation of downloaded packages will be provided by GDebi.


As you might have guessed, there are no bigger differences between distributions. Ubuntu MATE and Linux Mint are well-tuned distributions that you will not usually have problems with, and well-advised users. Which is right for you? This can not be answered unequivocally. It depends on personal and preferences and areas that are important to you. Increased attention is paid to the release and support cycle.

If I had to go to one side, I would choose Ubuntu MATE. The reason is very active developers, relatively active community and also more supported platforms. The distribution is fairly young, so hopefully the drive will last for the developers. Because it is an official Ubuntu derivative, the distribution is also subject to partial control of Canonical and is more predictable. On the other hand, at Mint, the MATE version is the second in the order of the more famous Cinnamon.


Secure your home with a simple webcam

Having a good security lock on your doorstep, if you're often out of the house, is a matter of course, but even the safest security lock can be broken using the right technique or the rough force, and it is therefore appropriate to insure yourself with another layer of security with a tracking layer.

One option is to install a professional security system - cameras, touch sensors, alarm. The security price should always be proportional to the value of the secured property. The dear security system is therefore definitely the right choice for warehouses full of expensive electronics, banks and family homes full of old paintings and jewels after the grandmother. For the average household, the security of a desktop or laptop computer and a simple webcam can be purchased for a few dollars.

Live watching

There are countless apps running on Linux that allow you to stream video on-line or shoot at regular intervals, and upload your captured images to a Web site via the FTP protocol. A very nice application with many features is WebcamStudio for GNU / Linux. In addition to the classic features, such as online streaming and regular capture, lets you use a connected iPhone or MiniDV as a webcam and many more, an imaginary icing on the cake, it is possible to add information about the currently playing song in Rhytmbox or use some of the many creative filters, but this is far from the subject of this article.

Motion Detection

However, because you can not and do not want to spend a whole day watching your home with a webcam or browsing hundreds of pictures, you can use motion detection to create a so-called photopost.

For our purposes, that is, to create a photopost, the Motion program, which is a few of the latest versions of the Ubuntu Linux distribution, is well served in the basic set. If it is not, you can get it with a simple command.

sudo apt-get install motion

To set the motion program, a classic configuration file with the .conf extension is used, for which you create a special directory in the home folder and copy it from the original location using commands

mkdir .motion

sudo cp /etc/motion/motion.conf ~/.motion/motion.conf

You can then edit it in a text editor such as nano.

sudo nano ~/.motion/motion.conf

Although at first glance the motion program seems to be very simple, it runs without a graphical interface at the command line, the configuration options are really rich. Motion can run in so-called daemon mode, default is set to off if you turn on the daemon mode, so you will write the daemon on the configuration file, the motion will run in the above-mentioned mode and it will start immediately after the system starts.

The Width and Height variables are used to adjust the width and height of the image. It is in pixels and the default value is 320px for both variables.

Framerate, as the name suggests, indicates the recording speed. The value is set in seconds and is set to 2 fps at 2 frames per second.

The Motion detection threshold is very important for moving motion, which indicates how many pixels it needs to change in order to start the photo, in other words, to save the image. The default value is 1500 pixels if you want to have a more sensitive photopast, lower the value of the variable. For our use, however, the value of 1500 pixels is quite sufficient, because we do not want the photopast to trigger any fly that flies in front of the camera.

Another important variable is output_normal. This determines how the capture will take place when you run a photo. The default value is on, which means that the images will be captured throughout the motion at the speed set by the framerate variable described above. The default setting is suitable for us if you do not want to stream the whole video if you run a photo, in which case it would be more accurate to talk about video tracks. Other options are the first, best and center values that limit the number of images stored. If you plan to stream or save a video file, set the value to off.

Finally, the target_dir variable determines to which folder the captured images will be saved. The value is logically the path to the destination folder. It's reasonable to synchronize somewhere automatically (if you're using Dropbox) if someone gets you while you're away, it's likely to steal your photopast, and if you have images stored on your local disk, it does not make sense.

Start the Motion program with the sudo motion command. If everything is set up correctly, snapshots will start appearing in the folder specified by the target_dir variable.

Cloud connection

As mentioned above, pictures taken with Motion can be stored in the cloud with Dropbox. Another option is to save images to your own FTP server via the wput program, which you can specify by entering the command

sudo apt-get install wput

In the Motion program configuration file, set the value on_picture_save to

wput ftp://user@password@server %f

Where user, password, and server are the values to connect to your FTP server.

Send notifications by email or by SMS

And we get to the final, key part of our entire security system, sending notice if Motion detects some movement. To do this, sendemail will be served by:

sudo apt-get install sendemail

In the Motion configuration file, insert the following lines where you will of course change bold highlighted text to specific values.

on_event_start sendEmail -f YOUR_OUTGOING_ADDRESS@EMAIL -t Q YOUR_INCOMING_ADDRESS@EMAIL -u "SUBJECT" -m "Movement detected!% d% m% Y% H:% M-s smtp.gmail.com:25 -xu YOUR_OUTGOING_ADDRESS@EMAIL - xp EMAIL_PASSWORD

To send a cell phone alert, we will use the e-mail as an SMS. This is a simple trick when using the on_event_start value as the incoming email address of the mail sms gateway (see below), of course, instead of the phone number, we will write your actual phone number, including the international prefix. Bran has a plethora of quantity, always look for the operator's gateway in the country whose network your phone will use. Here is an example of several such gates.

  • AT & T: phone_number@txt.att.net
  • T-Mobile: phone_number@tmomail.net
  • Virgin Mobile: phone_number@vmobl.com
  • Sprint: phone_number@messaging.sprintpcs.comVerizon: phone_number@vtext.com
  • Nextel: phone_number@messaging.nextel.com
  • US Cellular: phone_number@mms.uscc.net
  • Alltel: phone_number@message.alltel.com

Banners for PPC campaigns practically

Every online marketer or PPC specialist has ever met with the need to create banners in their campaigns. In that case, it is not enough just to say "I need banners for PPC remarketing campaigns". You should not forget the correct interpretation of the purpose of the banners and the passing of the basic requirements to the graphic designer - it will make it easier for you to save time and ultimately: finance.

Several times I met with the fact that the graphic designer sent me banners where the assignment was misunderstood, the text was unreadable, missing the call to action element (CTA), the corporate identity and other mistakes that we still get. There was no link between the banner and the web, or the company. Why was that so? I could not explain exactly what I needed from the graphic designer, and what the banners should be.

You do not need to be creative when you enter banners. Just logic and think carefully about the goal. Creativity and layout is a work of art. Banners are never (or should not be) just a shout in the dark. You as a PPC specialist and banner sponsor are the ones that give the entire PPC strategy meaning, concept and logic.

You are responsible for the fact that the assignment of the graphic will have a clear structure and will include the target group so that the graphic artist can feel better (unlike you, it does not have a couple of what the text on the banner should be or what the words on the target).

TIP: Banner texting is not a work of graphics or copywriter, but PPC specialists!

Do not forget the 4 most important parts of the banner

Before we go into the practical part, it is necessary to understand the individual elements that the assignment should contain.

1.Functions of banners

Targets determine the purpose for which banners are to serve. It is important to mention what PPC specialist want to achieve by banner. Here are examples of how you can enter your goals:

  • Engage in a unique event (free shipping, discount discount with a gift, time limited offer, limited edition)
  • Brand awareness and brand awareness, business, or service, for example, on news sites
  • Promotion of a brand on sites with a target group of women who are responsible for pregnancy, childbirth and maternity
  • We want to reach the users who were here two months ago, not bought and we want to remind them with news on the web, promotional offer or week of free transport
  • Address our existing customers with a new autumn collection of children's clothing

Otherwise, we will approach the users who know us, and otherwise those who have not heard about us in life, and this should also be reflected in communication through banners. That's why the graphic artist should know who we're talking about.

2. Emotions

The goals and purpose of the banner should be based on emotions. Emotions should create the customer's taste or need to click on the banner. There are a lot of pictures, so if you have an idea and an idea, you can outline the graphic designer and what you would imagine on the banner.

Emotions should always be subordinated to the product. Because mums who buy consumer goods for children will respond to other elements - such as children's faces, action badges. While young girls whose main sense of life is makeup, fashion, and trendy things, they will respond to the visual as such.

TIP: If you are not sure whether the banner is clear, ask your friends in your neighborhood. The condition, however, is to show them the banner for 5 seconds and then ask them if they know what the image was promoting. As soon as they are over the banner for more than 5 seconds, there is something wrong.

But beware of the bad emotions that can cause the user of the Internet completely different feelings than we want.

3. Texts on the banner

The text is based on two things, namely - the purpose of the banner and what the texting works in PPC campaigns. When a brand new campaign is created, it comes from the people and goals that the e-shop or service wants to reach. The text should be clear, precise and accurate. You do not have to think of anything to go wrong. Even plain text can give the artist a life by highlighting an important part of the sentence you need to emphasize.

If that part of the text exists, write it to the graphic designer!

TIP: Do not forget that the banner is not a place for novels, but just for clear information.

4.Call to action / Call to action / Button

It does not apply that call-to-action buttons should always be green. Nor does it matter that these buttons are a must. Often, you will not see them for example in brand banners. If you want to place a banner on the banner, it should ideally be in the conversion color that is on the site. If the color does not match the banner, it should be based on site colors. But try to keep conversion colors because there is a clear visual path to complete the conversion.

Button is not a direct condition. Challenges to action can also be processed in other forms.

Buttons and call-to-action buttons do not always have to be a button, they can be handled only as underlined text, for example: Discover the collection. Why? Because users are accustomed to what is underlined, this is a link.

TIP: After clicking the banner, the user should know that they are in the right place, so take advantage of the colors of the web and corporate identity.

Practically how to present banners for graphics

I would like to draw attention to the important five basic things I write in each assignment for graphics. These are the elements that should not be forgotten in the banner:

  • the same font style as the web or e-shop
  • Click-through colors on the web
  • company logo or mascot
  • Call to action element - CTA (for branding banners not required), if the CTA button is, it should be visually similar to what's on the web in the conversion path
  • The CTA should be located at the bottom of the banner

TIP: Always add the required size, maximum size and possible sizes to the entry. You can create a .GIF element on the banner along with the graphic artist.

TIP: Make things easier for each other. PPC specialist should provide the most accurate description of banners, including textings, calls to action and banner goals. The graphic designer should deliver complete sets of banners named after what they contain. Not just Set_01, Set_02, Set_03.

TIP: Always create a banner that you agree with and then create the rest of the graphics. Both parties will save a lot of time.

The same procedure as in the examples above is now repeated every time I enter the banner of the graphic artist. It's an instant guideline on how to forget about anything and give it to the graphic artist.

A few important information at the end - always think that:

  • The look and function of the banner also determines the appearance of the site on which the ad was displayed. That's why it's a good idea to access sites exclusion individually to see where the ad positions are and how the site works.
  • fewer is more
  • Readability of the banner at first glance is important. It is necessary for the user to know what you are selling for goods or services.
  • There should not be more elements on the banner that are similar to the CTA button such as the pink buttons below, the CTA must always be unambiguous.
  • For what goes into PPC campaigns, PPC specialist is responsible and never a graphic designer!
