New BitKey 14.1 release should make Jason Bourne happy

A new version of our Bitcoin side-project BitKey is finally finally out after I found the time to give it some love. Specially designed to make Jason Bourne happy.

BitKey is a self-contained Live CD/USB key with everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. Offline cold storage made (slightly more) practical.

Changes in 14.1:

Introducing BitKey - A secure Bitcoin live USB/CD solution built with TKLDev

I'd like to announce a side project we've been working called BitKey. The idea was to see if we could use the TurnKey development tools to create a self-contained read-only CD/USB stick with everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions.

LXDE review: it zips, it flies! (base for client-side TurnKey appliances?)

At home we canceled our cable subscription a few months ago. We hardly ever used it any more. Instead we were downloading content to a makeshift media server and watching it on our own schedule. Many of the shows I like (e.g., Colbert Report) aren't even available over here.

Upstairs we had a gorgeous big screen HDTV set that was being powered by one of my old computers, a nice P4 machine with 1GB of memory that was running the TurnKey Torrent Server appliance on bare metal.

Then it died. Traced it back to the motherboard being fried by a faulty power unit. Facing an immediate home entertainment emergency, I rummaged through the basement and found an old P3 machine with 256MB of old-style memory (I.e., the kind you can't get any more of these days).
