Once again congratulations on creating a Keybase account. You have joined a growing number of people worldwide who have taken their privacy and security to the next level.
Keybase offers a lot of features, there is end-to-end encrypted Chat, a free 250 GB File storage, a signed hosting, and the ability to easily sign any text, images, and the usual document files. However, there is one feature usually ignored and this feature was one of the hottest when Keybase first sent invites to testers. That is what I will guide you through today.
Freedom, anonymity, privacy, & security, are the most important part of our lives, and this is especially true today as we move faster into the digital world. We need to secure our online communications to prevent anyone from listening. We need to prove the identity of the other person we are working with. We need an easy way to use encryption to keep private data from being seen by unauthorised individuals.
There are various software, apps, services, available which offers one, two, or maybe three features mentioned. However, there is one which is largely ignored, that is Keybase.
Here is a short guide on how to activate and use Baybayin-Buhid, Baybayin-Hanunoó, Baybayin-Tagalog, and Baybayin-Tagbanwa, using Google’s Gboard app.
Since I got my first ever smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Y (S5360), (and Android too) I was having some problems with calibrating phone’s compass. The compass applications I found in the Android Market instructs users to do a figure-8 wave. I did all kinds of figure-8 wave and well, nothing.
Google, the largest search engine today (and the “Microsoft” of the cyberworld), is slowly deploying IPv6 across their sites. But even if you are already connected to IPv6, you will still not get an IPv6 Google.
Why? Their current IPv6 implementation is currently in its testing phase. All IPv6 access must come from a reliable network that they have to pre-approve, this is the Google over IPv6 project.
IPv6 or Internet Protocol version 6 is the answer to our IPv4 problem. What problem? By 2011 or 2012 (according to estimates), there will be no more IPv4 addresses left. This means that, anyone with a need to have a static IP address will not be able to get any for their project or service.
When this day comes, someone must start finding IP address owners who does not really need a static address and give it to someone who needs it seriously. We may even see owners starting to sell their extra IPs at a price far more expensive that what it is worth today.
In my previous post I talked about “Baybayin - the Forgotten Pre-Hispanic Writing of the Filipino”. It was added in version 5.0 of the Unicode Standard together with Buhid, Hanunoo, and Tagbanwa under the “Philippine Scripts” group. But how should we properly write or mark our content written in another language and script?
For this post, I will talk about how to correctly declare the language of your content, this way you are being friendly with translation software and helper applications, and other technologies that rely on this often taken-for-granted HTML attribute. As is shown in our image, everyone can see the writing script used, but in the digital world there are people who do not have the fonts you are using. There are also people who do not use the same browser as you and me use - it could be a text-only browser, a speech browser, or a Braille browser.
It is then only appropriate that we properly and correctly tag our content with the language and script we are using. Get ready to use the LANG attribute a lot.
The YOOki (柳紀 ・ 유 기) Chronicles is ᜌᜓᜃᜒ (Yuki ・ 雪亮)’s return into casual and personal blogging. The name “YOOki” is a mash-up of the acronym of YourOnly.One and my nickname ᜌᜓᜃᜒ (Yuki ・ 雪亮).
according to Chinese legend, 「柳」 (YOO) is an ancient Chinese surname. The ancestors of the surname were closely linked with the ancient sage-king named Yu Shun. In Korea, the 「유」 (YOO) lineage traces to the Xia, Han, and Joseon dynasties. Holders of the surname Yu or Yoo had a reputation for charity and diligence.1
It is also the word for “willow” or the “willow tree” which means graceful or slender; and a tree growing near a body of water which provide continuous nourishment and resources for everyone. It can also mean to exist, an oil (anointment(?)), and simply as “U” (you).
The hanzi 「紀」 (ki) character means to record, be disciplined, provide order. While the hangul equivalent, 「기」 (ki; gi), means energy, spirit, a banner, and a period of time; and is also a suffix used to make a gerund or an infinitive.
Can you guess what I mean by 「柳紀」 and 「유 기」 as the Chinese and Korean for “YOOki”?
