Well today I present you a little game that caught my attention: Ingress.
Powered by Niantic Googlee Labs brings a science fiction scenario in augmented reality environment and geo.
To some this will sound like Chinese, augmented reality?? Geo??. To give you an idea quick and somewhat crude, basically the game uses the real world and the GPS of your mobile as a base for the game, for example, you are going to enfocais town square and the statue of the founder and what is that? A portal!.
Logically the game is more complex than this hehe but like geocaching is a good excuse for walking the mobile out there and do some exercise especially for those who like I spent half the day glued to the screen lol.
I have still not very clear the history, so far there are two sides to the rebels and the enlightened, and to my knowledge there comes lol.
If you got an invitation doi will give you more information and a more detailed report
So suddenly I leave the trailer

Today I am inspired so we go with another post about computing.
Surely privacy paranoids known as GPG and its possibilities, for those who do not know will make a very basic explanation.
Each user has two keys for your email, one public and one private, the public key can be up to a key server so that others can download it or just send it to people you trust. When you send an email you have several options, send it as normal, send it signed, or send signed and encrypted. The difference between these two is that one simply anger signing with your private key and so people will be sure it was you who sent it, and the other signed addition will also encrypted which only the person to whom it send may read. For the latter two you will have to have the public keys of the other as they are required to encrypt and decrypt messages. Encrypted messages are signed with your private key and public key of the recipient to which only the recipient with your public key and private key can decrypt and read it.
Well, I was not very good at explaining these things but San Google you can help define the system much better than me, you I'm better with my hands dirty which is So we have:
Get the necessary software == ==
OS According === ===
Linux ==== ====
If your operating system is Linux then you probably already have installed gnupg on. In case you do not have it we can download different packages of its official website: Downloads GnuPG .
Windows ==== ====
In the case of using Windows you must download the necessary software gpg4win page: Downloads gpg4win . This package contains the base system (gnupg) and some other programs which include Kleopatra, to help us manage the keys, and Claws Mail, a mail client.
According to Mail Client === ===
Thunderbird ==== ====
For the email client Thunderbird extension that we have a much easier work when configuring gpg in this email client. The name is Enigmail extension and can be downloaded here .
Microsoft Outlook ==== ====
Gpg4win package already contains everything needed for integration with Microsoft Outlook (on state testing in 2003 and 2007 versions, and no tests in 2010).
Creating == GPG key pairs ==
Linux === ===
Using this in a terminal we execute the wizard to create your keypair:
gpg: directory `/ home / user / .gnupg 'created
gpg: new configuration file `/ home / user / .gnupg / gpg.conf 'created
gpg: WARNING: options in `/ home / user / .gnupg / gpg.conf 'are not yet active During this run
gpg: keyring `/ home / user / .gnupg / secring.gpg 'created
gpg: keyring `/ home / user / .gnupg / pubring.gpg 'created
Please select what kind of key you want:
(1) DSA and Elgamal (default)
(2) DSA (sign only)
(5) RSA (sign only)
Your selection? "Press [Enter]"
DSA keypair will have 1024 bits.
ELG-E keys May be Between 1024 and 4096 bits long.
What keysize do you want? (2048) Press [Enter]
Requested keysize is 2048 bits
Please specify how long the key Should be valid.
0 = key does not expire
= Key expires in n days
w = key expires in n weeks
m = key expires in n months
y = key expires in n years
Key is valid for? (0) "Press [Enter]"
Key does not expire at all
Is this correct? (Y / N) and
You need a user ID to identify identity your key, the software constructs the user ID
from the Real Name, Comment and Email Address In this form:
Real name: Name Surname
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Comment: "Press [Enter]"
You selected this User-ID:
Change (N) ame, (C) omment, (E) mail or (O) kay / (Q) uit? O
You need a Passphrase to protect your secret key.
Enter passphrase: [Enter your password twice]
We need to generate a lot of random bytes. It is a good thought to perform
some other action (type on the keyboard, move the mouse, use the
disks) During the first generation, this Gives the random number
generator a better chance to gain enough entropy.
gpg: / home / user / .gnupg / trustdb.gpg: trustdb created

In this article in English can learn more about the information returned by gpg.
Windows === ===
In Windows there are two ways to create key pairs: for console or using Kleopatra.
Console ==== ====
In this case we open a DOS console and go to the directory where you have installed GnuPG (usually "C: \ Program Files \ GNU \ GnuPG").
And write the command:
With this we get the same wizard in Linux.
Kleopatra ==== ====
In Chapter 7 of the Compendium included with gpg4win (also available online here ) have steps to follow, in English, to create your keypair.

GPG Cheat Sheet (In English)
Quite some time since I wrote anything on the blog so following the thread of my last post today I will quickly explain how to mount your own Asterisk PBX (when you have time and play a bit more with it I will put some configuration files example).
So here we go:
Basic Installation Asterisk === ===
We will use the version of the Debian repositories:
Web GUI installation === ===
Asterisk does not bring a GUI for configuration so we will use the created for Digium.
We get the sources via SVN GUI Digium using the following command:
Proceed to compile the sources:
The last command will check that we have properly configured Asterisk to use the GUI, not having changed the necessary files will fail and we will explain the files we need change and the subsequent form of access to the GUI.
Files to be modified are:
/ Etc / asterisk / http.conf
/ Etc / asterisk / manager.conf
Asterisk default search page files in / usr / share / asterisk / but the fonts installed in / var / lib / asterisk with which we execute the following commands:
We have the Asterisk PBX with mounted and running GUI \ (^ o ^) /

Update 26/09/2011 ****** *****
After upgrading the Blade with Cyanogen 7 with gingerbread rom seems that now it is much easier to share the connection and the phone itself brings the option to share both USB and configured as an access point. I have not tried to use it on Windows so if you do not need the software indicated that before. In linux is simply connecting, sharing via USB and do "ifconfig usb0 up && sudo dhclient usb0" and ready.
After updating the Blade with Cyanogen 7's rom with gingerbread looks like now is Easier to share our conection Because now the phone itself Have the option to share it by USB or configuring itself as an access point. I did not test it in Windows using the USB yet, so I do not know if you still need the software I Provide earlier. In linux is as easy as to plug it, share it using USB and the do "sudo dhclient usb0 ifconfig usb0 &&"
Today I will explain quickly (I can not winded as it is quite simple) Since my dear P5Q Deluxe brings drivers not use this option in Windows 7.
For those who do not know which is the teaming, this involves using two or more network cards as one, in my case two network cards to giga that happen to be 2 ip's different 1Giga each IP to be one ip 2 gigs of speed (remember that you must use as many switch ports as cards do them in teaming, not worth connecting a single card!)
1 º We will http://www.marvell.com/support.html and we downloaded the version for your operating system (Windows 7 in this case.
2nd Run the installer and warn us (in English) that we have closed all windows network configuration (come on, the typical shows he number of packets sent / received, etc..) Or other management tools of Windows as the task manager. The installer is not anything special, typical of Windows, all following and yes (or yes in this case).
3 The installer will install a new driver to the miniport. Now we go to Network and Sharing Center and right open shared network devices and see all we have network connections.
4 º Now right click on one of our Marvell Yukon and we in property and within the same Configuration. Now we'll see a new tab appear with him Marvell logo.
5 In the Team tab we click on Create Team and configured as basic (do not know why in dynamic mode always gives cable disconnected and does not work so this is the safest option). We hope to finish the process and click on OK. Network connection disappears and appears a new one with the name of the Team.
6th Now we go to the other Marvell Yukon and back to right click, properties, settings, Team tab and click on add Team. Select the Team we created earlier and click on OK. Network connection disappears.
Now we have our network cards working on teaming (^ o ^), remember that if you had set certain ports or dmz host specific network card will have to reconfigure the router and now only have one!! (A 2 gig connection yes xD).
It seems that there are some programs with jumbo packet size so no modifiquéis this parameter and if by chance you disconnected cable out and the status tab of the Team we leave the two cards with a yellow dot, this was the problem I solve it myself and putting the basic type Team.
A greeting and I hope you serve something
Looking some technology news I've heard that the Galician Government has promoted the creation of a "complete open source operating system compatible with any computer in the Galician language" that regrettably traduciéndoselo to ordinary people is being "is one translated into Galician Linux will surely have a very cuca interface but despite our efforts will surely have a slight problem with some drivers for your graphics card does not have such drivers for Linux "...
Okay, after this little sarcasm when I have to admit that I do not dislike the idea, but not exactly innovative, galinux there at least since two years ago and has nothing to do whatsoever with this new version, and it also exists Trisquel distribution created by our friends at the University of Vigo, both in Galician, Debian itself (which I guess distribution have been based) contains packages in Galician have it fully translated but are not as you can guess.
On the assertion made that improve the performance of your computer if you install it on your hard disk ..... It is clear that this announcement was being made to people who think that Linux is a new mini ice cream. Have you ever tried to install something on Linux? is very nice to say that contains all commonly used applications, okay, office, itunes, nero and emulate right?
I may be being somewhat harsh criticism, may this mistaking me and make it a revolution, something like a new Windows without blue screen (I know that miracles do not exist), but if you really want to promote the use of a powerful system, not to sell a tricycle by a motorcycle, I'm glad that are worked on the translation into Galician Linux but Linux is much more than that and you can not advertise in the same way that a new Windows ....
After all this stuff I just finished lowering the ISO, I'll ride the VmWare and I'll see how it works and how it works and I commented on a generic PC and for those of you interested in the topic of Linux in your native language, either Galician or any other, to know the different pages of distributions such as Debian (can you tell which is my favorite?) can collaborate directly translating the English. In short, new news is innovative but has rather little, I'll be aware of how software developers and especially in what direction will guide the software to be included in a distribution of 660 mb.
For those interested in the bar on the right you will see that is the link to the page Galinux.
