Urnas com Linux terão biometria este ano

Eu fico tão feliz ao ler reportagens como a reportagem abaixo:

Mais feliz ainda com frases como:

"Uma delas é a economia", segundo ele, já que o órgão de governo não terá mais de comprar licenças dos antigos sistemas proprietários.

Outra vantagem da escolha do Linux, segundo Janino, "é a transparência do processo". Segundo ele, com os antigos sistemas proprietários, o TSE tinha dificuldade em abrir os códigos de programação das urnas a entidades como Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil (OAB) e mesmo aos partidos políticos.

A terceira vantagem, de acordo com o secretário, é a segurança. "O software (Linux) é robusto e reconhecidamente seguro", afirmou Janino.

Realmente o Linux é o futuro junto com muitos outros programas de código aberto desenvolvidos pelo mundo inteiro.

Essa história de biometria também é algo que veio pra ficar, eu mesmo comprei um computador portátil onde eu faço login colocando meu dedo, assim fica mais difícil de alguém entrar sem minha autorização pois ele precisa do meu dedo.

IMEI and ICCID. Why should I know it?

Hello everybody,

That's me again. Today let's talk about two names IMEI and ICCID.

But you are probably asking yourself: Why do I need to know it?

Simple!!! You probably have a cell phone and it is probably GSM, so If someone stole your mobile phone call your operator and give them your IMEI number and they will ban this equipament, so the people will have to put this mobile in the trash.

IMEI is a unique serial number, it identify  your GSM mobile phone, just you have this number in the whole planet.

ICCID ( Integrated Circuit Card ID) or SIM Card is the number of your SIM Card. 

See what wikepedia tell us:

The Subscriber Identity Module Serial Number (SSN), or Integrated Circuit Card ID (ICC-ID), is a 19 or 20 digit unique number that identifies an individual SIM card used in GSM and 3G phones. The number is printed onto the SIM card.

The exact format of the SSN differs according to the mobile operator, however the following is constant:

  • The first 3 digits represents the Mobile Country Code (MCC).
  • The next 2 digits represent the Mobile Network Code (MNC, i.e. the mobile operator).
  • The next 12 digits is the number, from which some operators use the two left most to indicate the Home Location Register.
  • The 20th digit then is a checksum.

    Software Libre vs Software Proprietario

    Hola amigos,

    Entonces he deseado añadirlo en mi blog para que vosotros puedan mirar.

    En este vídeo tenemos el Prof. Miguel Ángel Manso Callejo de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid hablando sobre ese tema tan importante.
