Ask Slashdot: FTP Server Honeypots?

Chris Hiner Re:rate limit incoming connections based on IP (298 comments)

For mysql I just use the skip-networking option to only allow connections locally using the named pipe interface. Or just block port 3306 and only allow connections from IPs that I want to connect.

Chris Hiner Re:Whiny bastards (186 comments)

So if I make a bomb, and put "This is not a bomb" on it, then no-one will think it's a bomb?

New York to Implement an 'Amazon Tax'

Chris Hiner Re:they can pass it all they want... (411 comments)

County, City and other regional taxes make it very complex. And some states, such as California specifically tell you that zip code isn't enough to identify which taxes apply to an address. See http://www.boe.ca.gov/pdf/pub71.pdf

If you are in doubt about the correct rate, check with your customer, call our toll-free number (800) 400-7115, or call the local Board of Equalization office near you for assistance.

Yes, that's REALLY easy to automate....
