Transmeta launches new Crusoe processor

  View Printable Version 
Transmeta, which designs energy-efficient chips for laptops, on Monday announced a new Crusoe chip that it said uses one-third the space on a notebook's motherboard than its current processors do.

Santa Clara, Calif.-based Transmeta said that because the Crusoe 6000 takes up less space than current versions of its chip, it is ideal for use in a growing number of smaller, thinner and lighter notebooks and handheld PCs.

Transmeta, which has suffered from dismal notebook sales in Japan, its principal market, said the Crusoe 6000 will be available in the second half of 2002 at speeds running at 1GHz.

  View Printable Version 
SecurityFrom The Register:
SirCam, the bandwidth-munching privacy invading mass mailing virus, is due to attempt to wipe infected users' Windows PCs next Tuesday.

Manual Keying IPSec on OpenBSD 2.9

  View Printable Version 
OpenBSD/NetBSDThis is basically an explanation of doing manual keyed IPSec between two OpenBSD 2.9 servers. Due to errors I have found in all IPsec documentation, not to mention much confusion reading them, I have compiled together what worked for me from all of the man pages. This doesn't cover using ISAKMPD -- that will be documented later on.

This isn't the most easy way or flexible way of setting up IPSec, but it is a clearer way and a more controlled way. I went this route when I was having problems with ISAKMPD.
