iTunes' Windows Problem

MrJones Re:Thank you Slashdot (332 comments)

You get the point, no more news for nerds here. And Jean-Louis Gassée should name at least 3 problem that can not be solved with 1 iTunes app scenario. This is a non issue.

MrJones War Propaganda (667 comments)

I wonder what is the position of Slashdot Editors towards war, or towards a war against Iran.

Has this post anything to do about "news for nerds"?

RIP Richie and many thanks for C, the language that enabled UNIX to come to life!

Richard Stallman's Dissenting View of Steve Jobs

MrJones FSF should fire him (1452 comments)

He can work in the FSF as VP of travel and evangelization. The President should be a new person. Someone fresh and young, with vision.
Using the hate as a way to force people to think like you is not good.

Also, a person with fresh memory will too. RMS forgot that the most used browser in mobile is webkit, an Apple product.

NIC.py hacked, google.com.py redirected

MrJones MrJones writes  |  about 6 months ago

MrJones (4691) writes "Last February 20th, hackers supposedly from Iran accessed and modified the www.NIC.py database, redirecting www.google.com.py to another site.
The hackers posted the whole NIC.py database containing full names, national ID numbers, street addresses, phone numbers and more. This is not the 1st time that NIC.py, managed by the 2 most respectful Computer Science(CS) Universities of Paraguay, was hacked.
Since the whole BD was released, local white hats could calculate how much money NIC.py was making annually by charging 44 US$ per .py domain.
The local CS community are urging the NIC.py administrators to do all whats possible to protect the .py domain names since the hack was done thanks to a simple RCE vulnerability.
If they can modify google.com.py, just imagine what they can do to banks and financial institutions. Maybe Google can helps us."

tinymailto, get my e-mail if you are a person

MrJones MrJones writes  |  about 8 years ago

Just released my newest experiment/web-toy called tinymailto. Well, I don't have any experiments/web-toys, so its my first ;)
The idea is like a tinyurl for e-mail, but, you need to pass a captcha test before getting my e-mail.
I will use mainly for my signature at forums and newgroups.
Now my email looks like this: tinymailto.com/oliver
