Aethedor The public key... (174 comments)

... consists of 64 hex characters. This gives a 256 bit public key. Not very strong or am I missing something?

PHP 5.6.0 Released

Aethedor Re: It's not the knife... (118 comments)

Choosing a programming language that best suites the needs of your company it totally different from pointless bashing a programming language you don't even use. In that case, those opinions are irrelevant to everybody.

PHP 5.6.0 Released

Aethedor Re:It's not the knife... (118 comments)

That's good for you, but it's still an opinion. I don't think that PHP works against the programmer. Talking about Django, I don't like it. I've takens a look at it, but I think it's too much hustle to get a simple website running. I've created my own framework, the Banshee PHP framework. It's fast, secure and easy to use. The websites you can make with Banshee are just as good as the one you can make with Django.

PHP 5.6.0 Released

Aethedor Re: It's not the knife... (118 comments)

You're missing my point. I'm only saying: if you don't like it, don't use it. But don't bug other people with oppinion, because it's irrelevant to the .

PHP 5.6.0 Released

Aethedor Re:It's not the knife... (118 comments)

It's not a bad knife. It's just that *you* think that it's a bad knife. I think it's a fine knife. I'm not saying perfect, but no knife is. I know its good sides, I know its bad sides, which allows me to handle it well. The things I create with it are really up any challenge.

But tell me, how's your cooking?

PHP 5.6.0 Released

Aethedor Re:It's not the knife... (118 comments)

Thank you for proving my point.

If you don't like PHP, that's fine. But please, stop wasting other people's time with your whining about it. Really, nobody cares!

PHP 5.6.0 Released

Aethedor It's not the knife... (118 comments)

it's the cook that prepares the food. It's not the camera, it's the photographer that shoots the picture. It's not the racing car, it's the driver that wins the race. It's not the programming language, it's the programmer that creates the application.

All you whiners can bash PHP like you want. But a PHP website will still beat your Perl website if the PHP programmer is better than you. So, unless your coding skills are 100% perfect, you better start looking at your own flaws instead of wasting time at whining about a programming language that simply isn't your pick of choice. Please, it's time to grow up.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

Aethedor Re:Wrong priority! (503 comments)

You expect and want the US to stick it's nose into every corner of the world?

It already has been doing that for the last decades.

Don't we have a UN? Can't Europe look after itself?

I'm not say that *only* the US president should be doing something. EVERY world leader should be doing something. If you think that this is only a local incident, you don't understand the situation there and what just has happend.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

Aethedor Wrong priority! (503 comments)

... the priority is investigating whether U.S. citizens were involved.

Seriously, is that really what matters now? What an arrogant *****. What really matters is who did it and why. What's the risk for other planes. If it were the rebels, how did they get their hands on such advanced weaponry. 298 people died. Who they were is something to find out by the airliner company. A president, and specially one from the USA, should really have other things to worry about.

Ask Slashdot: Choosing a Web Language That's Long-Lived, and Not Too Buzzy?

Aethedor Re:PHP with Banshee framework (536 comments)

Don't focus on a language only. Also look at a good framework. My advice is the Banshee PHP framework. It mainly focuses on security, which is the only important thing these days. I know this will be seen as spam, but do yourself a favor and just take a look at it for 15 minutes.

Perl Is Undead

Aethedor It should be dead (283 comments)

Whatever it is now, it should be dead. For the simple reason that Perl allows this kind of code:

$_='while(read+STDIN,$_,2048){$a=29;$b=73;$c=142;$t=255;@t=map{$_%16or$t^=$c^=( $m=(11,10,116,100,11,122,20,100)[$_/16%8])$t^=(72,@z=(64,72,$a^=12*($_%16 -2?0:$m&17)),$b^=$_%64?12:0,@z)[$_%8]}(16..271);if((@a=unx"C*",$_)[20]&48){$h =5;$_=unxb24,join"",@b=map{xB8,unxb8,chr($_^$a[--$h+84])}@ARGV;s/...$/1$&/;$ d=unxV,xb25,$_;$e=256|(ord$b[4])

PHK: HTTP 2.0 Should Be Scrapped

Aethedor Re:Tunnelling (220 comments)

Yeah, tell that to the firewall administrator who thinks that opening an extra port is far more insecure than to tunnel that extra connection via HTTP. The IT world is defined by a mass amount of incompetent administrators and developers.

PHK: HTTP 2.0 Should Be Scrapped

Aethedor SPDY doesn't solve the real issues (220 comments)

The biggest problem with SPDY is that it's a protocol by Google, for Google. Unless you are doing the same as Google, you won't benefit from it. In my free time, I'm writing an open source webserver and by doing so, I've encountered several bad things in the HTTP and CGI standard. Things can be made really more easy and thus faster if we, for example, agree to let go of this rediculous pathinfo, agree that requests within the same connection are always for the same host and make the CGI headers work better with HTTP.

You want things to be faster? Start by making things more simple. Just take a look at all the modules for Apache. The amount of crap many web developers want to put into their website can't be fixed by a new HTTP protocol.

We don't need HTTP/2.0. HTTP/1.3 with some things removed, fixed or at least have some vague things be specified more clearly, would be more than enough for 95% of all the websites.

Emory University SCCM Server Accidentally Reformats All Computers Campus-wide

Aethedor Re: Sounds like IT incompetence (564 comments)

Your story isn't about you messing up. It's about your boss failing hard at proper risk management. He's the one who should be fired for allowing a process in the company in which one person could do so much damage. Unfortunately, this happens still too often. Companies in which the mistake of one single person, the error of one single machine or the failure of one single process starts a chain reaction which causes heavy damage. Just take a look a look at the company you work for. I'm sure everybody can point out a machine or a person that will cause serious problems if that machine or person is not available for a certain amount of time.
