I would like to have a fitness software for Ubuntu. I think that I will give PyTrainer a try. It is available on my computer via the Ubuntu Software Center.

Today, I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10. I want to install Tor. I try this tip.
Here is what happens in the terminal of my computer:
liberty@liberty-desktop:~$ sudo sh -c 'echo deb "http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
[sudo] password for liberty:
liberty@liberty-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install tor tor-geoipdb privoxy
I will try later whether Tor works.

I just created an Ekiga account. But I want to look out for another VoIP software because I want to show on my blog whether I am online or not. Or use encryption. I will try Twinkle, and install it via Synaptic.

Maybe I should try to install Tor. I hope that Tor will be included in Ubuntu 9.10.

I just installed Geany. I need a text editor that is capable to display php files with color highlighting. The editor gedit is capable to do that. But gedit can’t scale the font size like e.g. Notepad++ (only available for Win XP). Komodo is another alternative, but I don’t like it.

Currently, I am encrypting an external USB drive with TrueCrypt 6.2 under Ubuntu 9.04. First, the outer volume is beeing formatted:
Later, I will have to create the hidden volume. I will use the hidden volume for backup of my KeePassX database. The database has a size of about 100 KB (a traditional floppy disk has 1.44 MB) – so it is pretty small. Since the database itself is encrypted (password and keyfile are needed to decrypt it), I have very high security. In the outer volume of the external USB hard drive that I am momentarily encrypting, a backup of files from an Win XP computer will be stored. I hope that this will work. I am not totally sure because I don’t know the file format TrueCrypt is encrypting the external hard drive with. It might be possible that Win XP doesn’t recognize ext3 if it is used. I will see.
