I’m using Debian Linux as a second operating system. Previously I was using it only for my servers, but now I’ve decided to start doing some software development on it. As I love bash environment, the choice of text editor was pretty obvious, Vim, the greatest editor ever made. But problem was that I like my syntax to be colored, it’s easier to write program code then. No problem, I thought, quick searching via Google gave me the “:syntax on” command which should enable what I’ve wanted.
I’ve found set of old Budweiser advertising posters and among them was this one: If you don’t know who was Kosciusko ask WikipediaWell, it’s a little shame that Polish hero was used for advertising such beer as Bud.

Good news to all people for whom being private in Internet counts. Some Netherlands based company started to provide free, that’s right completely free, VPN service. It’s enough to register and you can enjoy 128-bit encryption over your Internet connection which would gain you some privacy. You don’t have to install any software, just configure VPN connection in your system. Of course as it’s new and it’s free be careful, because all your Internet traffic would go through their servers first.
