Massive Bug in Intel, AMD, ARM and other Processors in Handling VM Memory

In the last few days, we started hearing about a massive bug in the implementation of the VM memory handling.

Intel has been frantically working on fixing host machines kernels in order to prevent one VM from accessing the memory of other VMs that run on the same machine.

Of course, most users are not going to attempt to read someone else memory so in that sense, most of us are relatively safe. But all of those who are not so lucky and have uninvited guests on their systems are running at very high risk. The information available from Intel says the memory is accessible only in Read mode. ...

Another reason to like SeaMonkey!

As I mentioned before, I like to use SeaMonkey. In general, browsing wise, it is very much like Firefox so that's good for those people who like Firefox, they can switch without losing much else than the location where the toolbar buttons are (Quite a few are in different places).

The thing I discovered today, though, is really cool. I put a path to an email saved on my disk to see whether the HTML in that email was valid or not and it loaded at once. Just before hitting Enter I though, wait... I probably should remove the email header. Nope. No need. It actually recognized the data and ...

Simplemenu Settings

Menu Settings

Menu

Select the menu to be displayed as the Simplemenu. By default, we display the Navigation Menu which makes the most sense for administrator (as the Simplemenu was primarily created for administrators wanting to quickly go to all administration pages.)

Theme

Select a theme to display your Simplemenu items and dropdowns. The default is called original.

The themes reside in the module sub-folder named themes. Each theme is defined in a specific directory named after the theme. That name is what appears in the dropdown in the settings.

It is possible to add new themes as

Simplemenu Upgrade Path

Version 7.x

Version 7.x-1.x-dev is a starting point... It is not complete, although it shows you a functional Management menu as a dropdown. More to come as time allows... See issue [#791664] for more info.

Version 6.x

Version 6.x-1.13 fixes the vertical menu problem which had to do with CSS caching getting lost.

Version 6.x-1.10 to 6.x-1.12 fixes the non-called theme() function versus the other sub-modules that have callbacks through the theme() calls. However, we really need to have callbacks instead. Added horizontal and vertical themes. Attempts to fix to the vertical menu problem

MobileKey addition to ThemeKey

The main idea of MobileKey is to give you the capability to switch your website theme to a mobile specific theme when the user access your site from one's mobile phone. A mobile theme will make it easier to access your website on a mobile device.

For go to the ThemeKey settings page:

Administer » Site configuration » ThemeKey

The MobileKey adds one selection to the list of attributes to match. The new selection is called:

mobile:device

This works everywhere on your website (it is a global option, not specific to any kind of pages.) The system checks different parameters to

MobileKey (The module —)

Introduction to the MobileKey module

The MobileKey module is an extension of the ThemeKey module that gives you a way to switch theme based on whether the user is viewing your website with mobile phone.

The installation is very simple. Follow the default Drupal 6.x installation steps (extract the tarball under your sites/all/modules/ folder.)

The module currently supports two features, a switch to force a mobile specific theme and a global redirect for your website front page.

To Do List Known Issues

Cannot Assign User to To Do List item

When you first install the module, I wouldn't be surprised if you'd want to create a To Do List item right away and then assign the task to one or more users.

It won't work.

Before users can be assigned a To Do List item, you must give them permission to be assigned to such an item. This is done in the usual permission place: Administer » User management » Permissions. You may also want to create a new role of people who deal with To Do List items.

Actually, the To Do List module comes with many permissions so you may want to ...

To Do Block

Installation

Go to Administer » Site building » Modules and click on To Do Block to install the Block extension for the To Do module.

Upgrading from version 1.0/1.1 to 1.2 or newer (or -dev) for Drupal 6.x users

I changed the name of the module back to InsertNode (although I did not want to, I did not want to jeopardize the Drupal 5 version... which would probably have been fine, but well...)

So, the newer version of the D6 module is again called InsertNode.

To upgrade you will want to keep the other version running until you get the new version as the replacement (although you can manage your site the way you'd like this procedure let you switch from the previous version to the new version without having to turn off your site for a little while.)

  1. Extract the new version, it adds InsertNode ...
