Ready to Go (Windows 10) Pro?

When Windows 10 was released in the middle of 2015, it came out with three versions – Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, and Windows Pro 10 for Workstations. Like previous Windows release, the public was quick to conclude that the Home version is, as its name implies, best for household use by the family. Individual contributors and office workers will benefit from the Pro release, and large working groups is the obvious target for the Pro 10 for Workstations.

But then, people that have been using the Pro version have been singing it praises, this despite the constant bugs to updates. So now, people who want more than what the Windows 10 Home provides and even those who still have Windows 7 (which has been de-supported in the middle of January 2020), ask, “Is updating to the Windows 10 Pro worth it?” and “What would the differences be between Windows 10 Home and pro?

 

Remote Desktop

Take note that all versions of Windows 10 can remotely connect to another Windows 10 PC. However, if you’re looking for remote access, only Windows 10 Pro has that. Staying with Windows 10 Home edition will not let you find settings to enable remote desktop connection, although you can connect to another PC, if that PC runs on Windows 10 Pro.

The Remote Desktop or RDP feature is disabled by default so you will need to enable it in the settings.

Bitlocker

For those who prioritize their security and keep their data safe from possible intruders, it’s time to consider switching to Windows 10 Pro even with its extra cost. Also, for those who have gotten used to Filevault of MacOS’, the Bitlocker found in Windows 10 Pro is the most similar to that service you’re looking for.

BitLocker is the name given to the full disk encryption software that’s built into Windows. First introduced with Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, BitLocker is now available with the Pro editions of Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Trusted and Secured Boot

Working in tandem Secure Boot and Trusted Boot aids in keeping your system away from malware and rootkits, allowing you full control of it. Trusted and Secured Boot, as their names suggest, works by checking each component of the startup process before it is loaded.

By working with Windows 10 device manufacturers, Microsoft hopes to make firmware security compromises, those that happen before Windows itself boots, a thing of the past.

Hyper-V

Virtual machine fans, rejoice! Hyper-V on Windows 10 Pro allows you to run virtual machines on CPUs that support virtualization.

There are many reasons to use a virtual machine. In most cases, they are used to run software that does not work on your OS. Whether you’re using a Windows, Mac or Linux OS, a VM will remove its limitations. For example, if you have a Windows machine and want to install an application that is only available for Mac, you can run a macOS instance on your Windows laptop to install it.

Pyro Fighters Review

Players will be able to fight fire with fire with argagonky’s new platformer Pyro Fighters. With infinite firepower and incredible mobility at your disposal, should players hit the skies and take down its alien menace?

Pyro Fighters Review

The good news in this title is that the citizens of Earth have created advanced fire-based weaponry. However, this good news does not last for long, as mysterious alien forces have come to attack. Armed with the prototype Pyro Buster, players take off to hit these evil forces where it hurts.

The simple story meets its simple 8-bit aesthetics, but the true star of the show is its gameplay. A platformer at its core, players will traverse a constantly scrolling stage, taking out countless enemies, avoiding deadly traps and bottomless pits, and eventually reaching a larger-than-life boss that is out for blood. Those weaned on the Nintendo Entertainment System games of old will know this song and dance all too well.

However, there is a hook, and that is the pyro blaster. Your greatest ally in this fight, players can use it to attack enemies and destroy projectiles. However, it serves another purpose – it can propel players into the air. Much like Quote’s weapon in Cave Story, players will be propelling themselves every which way to get through each of its six stages. Some parts of the game require absolute mastery of this mechanic, with pillars, spikes, fire, and other threats standing in your way. Power-ups that extend the flame’s reach are available, as are power-ups that can split the flame into three and make little green bombs.

Just be warned that the game pulls no punches. Some may relish the challenge, but those going solo will have the game eat through lives like candy. While it’s great that the game tosses players an additional five lives upon each game over and it takes three hits before dying, this often feels like a crutch. There are also a number of cheap shots that feel downright unfair – losing to a creature that cannot be fired at is more frustrating than fun. It often feels like these extra lives are a necessity, and that beating it with a paltry five lives is a pipe dream. In many cases, it’s best to bring a friend or three along for some four player action.

We also encountered some bugs along the way through our playthrough of Pyro Fighters. There were times where we were transported to an invisible part at the top of the screen on more than one occasion, with the game mindlessly scrolling without any player input. There are also times where we clipped through the environment on more than one occasion, leading to a quick death through no fault of our own.

Those that complete their first run can do a second loop of the game at a higher difficulty level. We were able to finish a run in around 45 minutes after sacrificing countless lives, though your mileage may vary based on how many lives you have stocked up.

Pyro Fighters channels the spirit of the 8-bit platformers that took the Nintendo Entertainment System by storm, but the brutal difficulty and rampant bugs makes the challenge more frustrating than fair.…

How to Manage Linux Log Files Using Logrotate

In a Linux system and pretty much all systems – log files are crucial when it comes to examining and troubleshooting errors. They provide important clues as to what could have gone wrong with various system services prior to failure.

Any service installed on your Linux systems such as Apache web server or MySQL database server generates log files that are usually stored in the /var/log directory. If you check the contents of this directory, you will see contents similar to what we have below:

Over time, as additional information gets logged, the log files increase in size and take up more space on your hard drive. Before you even know it, the log files will have ballooned in size, gobbling up much of your hard drive space, and if you are not careful, you can easily run out of disk space.

With that in mind, it becomes prudent to keep the log files to a manageable size and delete old log entries that hog precious disk space. And this is where the log rotation comes in.

What is log rotation ?

Log rotation is a process that creates new log files and archives & removes old ones to save on disk space. The process renames a current log file. For example, apport.log becomes apport.log.1 and a new apport.log log file is created to log new log entries. Older log files are usually compressed and appear as  apport.log.2.gz, apport.log.3.gz, apport.log.4.gz, and so on.

The log rotation process is facilitated using a utility called logrotate. This is a tool that facilitates the rotation of log files and archival & removal of old ones to free up disk space. In summary, logrotate accomplishes the following:

  • Creation of new log files after rotating old ones.
  • Archival of old log files.
  • Purging of older log files that have been rotated to save on space.

Log rotation is usually activated when the size of log files grows and exceeds a certain limit.

How logrotate utility works

Before we examine the workings of the logrotate utility, ensure that logrotate is installed on your system. To do that, issue the command:

For Debian / Ubuntu System:

$ sudo apt-get install logrotate -y

For CentOS / RHEL / Fedora System:

$ sudo yum install logrotate -y
or 
$ sudo dnf  install logrotate -y

Run below command to check logrotate version,

[email protected]:~$ logrotate --version
logrotate 3.14.0
    Default mail command:       /usr/bin/mail
    Default compress command:   /bin/gzip
    Default uncompress command: /bin/gunzip
    Default compress extension: .gz
    Default state file path:    /var/lib/logrotate/status
    ACL support:                yes
    SELinux support:            yes
[email protected]:~$

From the output, we can clearly see that we have logrotate version 3.14.0. By default, logrotate comes preinstalled in modern Linux distributions and hence no need to install it.

Logrotate configuration files

Logrotate runs daily as a cron job, going through various log files, rotating them, and purging older log files as defined in the configuration file. There are two main configuration sources that you need to pay close attention to:

/etc/logrotate.conf – This is the main configuration file for the logrotate tool. It contains default settings and facilitates log rotation for non-system package logs. More notably, it uses an ‘include‘ directive for pulling configurations located in the ‘…
