"Lax" Crossdomain Policy Puts Yahoo Mail At Risk

CBravo Re:Again I ask... (49 comments)

Well new tech is also lagging. Do you have your own server with email, all services (like monitoring, backup, security, ...) and pretty good spam filtering? For not-so-much money?

Ask Slashdot: Are Any Certifications Worth Going For?

CBravo Re:There is a reason for this! (317 comments)

We are a service provider and therefore create our own traffic and it is not extremely timing sensitive. We do monitor download times and they are always in acceptable limits (i.e. fast). The ports of our data centres are also monitored and spew out exactly our traffic numbers.

The load on our routers and the memory use is extremely low. They have been tested to see what happens under certain conditions. Vyatta takes a little memory per connection and we have seen a DDoS killing us because there was no more memory (when we had a low end machine do the work: Dell 1850, 2GB) and we upgraded the machine at that point to rediculous standards. But I will say that there certainly is a place for specialized equipment.

French Publishers Prepare Lawsuit Against Adblock Plus

CBravo Page neutrality (683 comments)

I think they are fighting for page neutrality. Why would one image not be loaded and the other one will be? Who is the author and holds the copyright? Who is the receiver to modify such works? I think they have a point (when net neutrality would be law; oh wait it isn't)[/evil grin]

Ask Slashdot: Paying For Linux Support vs. Rolling Your Own?

CBravo Re:Ask yourself: What is our business model? (118 comments)

The question should be: What are the risks and how do we keep them in balance (by maintaining control).

Ask Slashdot: Paying For Linux Support vs. Rolling Your Own?

CBravo Re:In my experience (118 comments)

That should teach you to not buy HP (or Dell) anymore. Buy normal motherboards that are not created by companies with non-standard ideas on creating hardware.

We no longer buy brand computers but have them assembled by our specs. We do not buy support, nor do we have SLAs. We do have enough people who understand and can solve operational issues (i.e. 5). We do tend to replace more stuff that fails to work when updated or has operational issues (like network cards that freeze when under full load, that is you Dell). And we have more hot-spare machines in a second location (good for maintenance, availability on HW failure, contingency plans, ...).

In the NL diesel cars are aboute 2 to 3 times more expensive to own. I pay 115 euro per month in road taxes (instead of 43 for the gas version).

Ask Slashdot: How To Unblock Email From My Comcast-Hosted Server?

CBravo Re:First step is to collect data. (405 comments)

Bounce codes are often a lie. Do not believe them per se. This has to do with anti-spam methods.

Ask Slashdot: How To Unblock Email From My Comcast-Hosted Server?

CBravo Re:First step is to collect data. (405 comments)

Actually: Gmail is quite the odd one out. They have their own opinion on how to filter, and quite succesful at it. Hotmail and Yahoo both offer feedbackloop and, sometimes, you can contact them.

Now the anti-spam organisations sure know each other, and share data. But on a larger scale that you would probably see in blacklists (for a full list of blacklists: http://multirbl.valli.org/). Since you are not blacklisted, I don't think that that is the issue.

About the messages: Hotmail says you should try again later. Do that. But Yahoo says that there are user complaints... That is probably true. You may actually be sending too little email (that looks like a botnet-like signature). They want a lot of legitimate traffic per IP, not droplets of maybe-spam.

But to conclude: Email is not easy anymore, even if it is your profession (it is mine). Forget about getting to know what is behind the curtains of blacklists and large inbox providers (they have their hands full on real crime to worry about a few false positives).

Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

CBravo Re:Desparate Microsoft pulls a "Sun Microsystems" (525 comments)

There are enough arguments against that conclusion. Just think of all the lost opportunities for businesses and wasting dollars on crap software, with previous MS business methods.To describe this differently: The MS way, is a dead end and you need extra effort to get on the highway again.

EU wants to aid evasion of censorship

CBravo CBravo writes  |  more than 6 years ago

CBravo (35450) writes "The Dutch site http://nu.nl/ wrote a story (in Dutch) about the Europarlement that wants to develop software to aid censorship evasion. 'It should punch a hole through the Chinese firewall' the parlement stated. They also want to give fines to companies that help sustain the censorship (like Cisco, Google and Yahoo).

Maybe the people in Australia need this to avoid their upcoming censorship."
