Simple correct vector icons

with one comment

The promt in the terminal icon in Gnome looked so odd, that I wanted to replace
it with something more close to reality i.e a real Solaris user shell prompt.

The tool sodipodi is quite good for drawing simple
vector graphics. I have been using the terminal icon (without the $) as the icon
for a host machine in my presentations. Since then I have made quite more icons, based on the
same principles: (a)simplicity (b)outer thick lines, inner thin lines (c) no 3D effects
as far as possible. There is so little that you can draw in a 48×48 space, you have to focus
on the big object and forget the details. Here are some previews: (originals are in svg format)





There are more of these.. will try to make a Gnome svg icon theme out of them.

Update: see OpenWorld icon theme

enumerating security risks

leave a comment »

It is important to enumerate trivial security risks associated with software.
Take twiki access control for example, though it lets you give access
control to a list of twiki users, twiki admin or root can still read the pages
if the twiki does not use encryption to store documents. Although it is quite
obvious (and possibly documented) non technical users may not get the idea.
They will be very surprised and alarmed when they come to know that twiki-admin
could have read all the documents they thought were very secured.
