Re: Q. Is a Raspberry Pi a good computer for internet banking / shopping?

Thank you ejolson, very informative. Linux security is not something I know much about and can do a little system management, will definitely read up on this.

Re: Q. Is a Raspberry Pi a good computer for internet banking / shopping?

Thank you to everyone who has replied so far. Really pragmatic advise. So what if the bank / shop had their JS compromised by a third party update, like was on the news that month? Would legally they be the problem even if your device for whatever reason was subseptable to the Meltdown / Spectre iss...

Re: Q. Is a Raspberry Pi a good computer for internet banking / shopping?

Thank you for your reply DarkPlatinum. Ok, given that the pi's password is changed and that the ARM CPU is not affected by Spetre / Meltdown, then therefore Raspbian as a distribution of Linux just as secure as any other distribution and as always with risk 'as good as it can be'?

Q. Is a Raspberry Pi a good computer for internet banking / shopping?

Hello, Given what Eben has written here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/why-raspberry-pi-isnt-vulnerable-to-spectre-or-meltdown/ and then doing a search on these forums for 'Meltdown' and finding https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=201453 - I was wondering if the Pi is a be...

Java RMI without RMIC on the Raspberry Pi

Hello,

I've made a screen cast which demonstrates using RMI without RMIC on the Raspberry Pi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bf8h-u3HHCc - which I thought you might enjoy.

The code is GPLv3 so feel free to download and use. Links underneath the screen cast.

Cheers,

Gareth

Re: Use a sealed case

What if one of the surfaces was metal but you used sealant? Perhaps even a heat pipe to the metal surface from heat sinks on the chips?

Re: Comparing Maven, Gradle and Ant.

Hi Clicky,

Ooooh, now I'm intrigued by:
I have a list of reasons why it is really bad idea
As I do think that Ant + Ivy is good for J2SE but not J2EE, so would love to read your list :).

Re: Comparing Maven, Gradle and Ant.

Oh, by 'proper' I meant program construction, not really the automated build process. Its just tools like Ant help to speed up the building process itself. I would not want to dare teach dependency injection to KS4 or less. It might be a topic of conversation for level 3 and actually taught at level...

Re: Comparing Maven, Gradle and Ant.

Ah ha! But I'm thinking of the educational context where you have a whole class of students working on the Pi's. And you want to teach the ability to automate the build process and compilation of more than one file. You don't have to create a Jar file but you do want to teach the need to break a pro...

Comparing Maven, Gradle and Ant.

Hello, When creating JAR files by hand I've become frustrated by the process, so looked into Maven but found it slow on the Pi, then looked at Gradle and also found that slow. Then I remembered 'Ant' from ages ago, so I've created a screen cast - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gdISDOuSn4 - that co...

Hi, I want to use 'Jed' for creating a series of screen casts on programming with Java on the Pi as I think it's a good editor for beginners to use but...

Re: Java on Raspbian

Hi, I noticed that the file 'libjli.so' does come with the tarball, in the '/lib/arm/jli' folder, so a quick Google saw posts relating to the 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable. So I tried that with an 'export' command but still did not work. I was assuming that a path to the 'lib' folder would ...
