Pirate Bay Retrial Denied, Judge Declared Unbiased

AndyFewt Unbiased? (331 comments)

Of course they'll say he was unbiased. If he was biased in this case they'll have to review ALL the previous cases to make sure that he wasn't influenced for those.It was the only call they could make.

Now I might not agree with their decision but I expect they also know it has a good chance of going forward at appeal and so therefore do not need to address this now.

The Chinese (Web Servers) Are Coming

AndyFewt Apache can do this (231 comments)

I've seen many sites change the headers/version replies for various reasons. Hell, anyone using mod security for Apache will default to a different version if they use the community ruleset.One website I know will respond with:
Server: Apache/2.2.0 - However, I know for a fact it is running 2.2.11

That can easily be changed in the mod security ruleset to be anything. Like this: Server: Myfakehttpdtakesovertheworld/1.9

I'd bet it is just apache.

Handling Caller ID Spoofing?

AndyFewt Solution (556 comments)

If she refuses to change the number, put an automated answering service on the number which instructs people about the fraud or if they really want to talk to the little old lady to press 1. That way the angry people will get told its all being spoofed and wont make the threats. You can do this fairly easily with Asterisk too. Cost wise, Asterisk is free, the pc is the main cost if there isn't an existing one and you can get the required Asterisk hardware (pstn -> pci card) from Digium.

If the govt won't help then this is the best solution without changing the number.

Red Hat HPC Linux Cometh

AndyFewt Re:The question is (34 comments)

I expect Centos will get it if Fedora don't. After all, Centos are just wholesale copies of RedHat Enterprise with the Redhat name removed (per RH's requirements)
