Regarding the recent streak of news around spies in Germany and the puzzled looks on the faces of politicians you really have to wonder whether they, in general, really believe they were excepted from American intelligence interests. Is it good or sad that the publicly visible figures are so incompetent? And who the fuck cares about those mobile phones anyway. Given those news I can see how they’d stop using IT altogether in some parts of government.
Everyone knows the Anime “Serial Experiments Lain” has a famous scene with Conway’s Game of Life, the next code snippet shown is less famous for some reason and uses parts of http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/lang/lisp/code/codewalk/walk/new_walk.cl, a portable code walker for Common Lisp programs, written in Common Lisp. Since being meta is part of the series, I’d say it’s at least semi-relevant.
Xpra is ‘screen for X’, and more: it allows you to run X programs, usually on a remote host and direct their display to your local machine. It also allows you to display existing desktop sessions remotely.
Xpra is “rootless” or “seamless”, and sessions can be accessed over SSH, or password protected and encrypted over plain TCP sockets.
Just tested this. It actually works very well considering how many layers are needed for this. Latency is obviously an issue for a connection where you’d even get lag on a text-only SSH connection and the fonts don’t look so well, e.g. with Emacs.
The difference between xpra and a native (though SSH-tunneled) X11 connection is very noticable; however, if you really need to reattach to a GUI client this is nice.
