Motorola's Sholes Bootloader Unlocked

Nuno Sa Sorry, but no (283 comments)

Even with the cracked bootloader, the company's attitude is not good, so I won't buy a phone from them.

London Stock Exchange Price Errors 'Emerged At Linux Launch'

Nuno Sa Re:Linux fails... AGAIN (168 comments)

Those *are* facts. The new system is better in every metric. The old system failed several times. Once it crashed and stayed down for the better part of the day.

The cause of the error in unknown... As always.

Anyway, there's no need for the "root cause". It failed. It was slow. Somebody had to eat a frog and scrap the whole system. And in the 90s they said nobody ever got fired for buying MS. Good old days. Too bad for some it's 2011!!

And you don't have to be bitter, MS' stock may hold a few months more with the Nokia buyout. :-)

Ask Slashdot

Nuno Sa Easy (1 comments)

The email headers (like To, Cc, Subject) play no part in deciding to whom the message goes.
The message goes only to the recipient pointed in the SMTP conversation, the "RCPT TO:" header.

This example smtp conversation will appear to be addressed to one@example.com but will only be delivered to two@example.com, and not one@example.com
Everything after the "DATA" is useless regarding the final destination of the message:
--- Cut here ---
HELO server
MAIL FROM: linus@linux.com
RCPT TO: two@example.com
DATA
TO: one@example.com
Subject: Got you!

Hello
.
--- Cut here ---

The similar email address is just some creative/random domain substitution ;-)

London Stock Exchange Price Errors 'Emerged At Linux Launch'

Nuno Sa Re:Linux fails... AGAIN (168 comments)

Btw, they are _upgrading_ to Linux, because the previous system (Windows and .net) failed several times, required MW of energy and was slow.

This new _upgraded_ system is many orders of magnitude faster.

Unfortunately, it appears, it wasn't properly tested... WTH? I'd expect for the system to run only 100x faster, instead of 1000x faster, during the first few weeks. Or maybe that some API from 1990 stopped working. Wrong data is just too much. Maybe the story isn't telling all the facts? ...Hmmm... Maybe the affected clients are running Windows?!!!!!!

Italian Police Seize Blog Over 'Kill Berlusconi' Satire

Nuno Sa Well, well (214 comments)

The man is no doubt a wizard in the arts of illusion, but what I'm more concerned about is the global Police State we're living in.

Open (geeks)phone, but not OpenMoko

Nuno Sa Re:This phone sounds awesome... (3 comments)

I could live with that screen and CPU... But 256MB RAM? A geek phone should be able to compile everything it needs and run at the same time.

Hey Marcan!
Good job with the AsbestOS :-)

Maybe now it's possible to remove the hypervisor and run Linux in the bare hardware?

Kudos to you.

Apache webserver vulnerable to "slow get", too

Nuno Sa Re:Takes no talent (5 comments)

Something like nginx or varnish will stand thousands of parallel active TCP connections with minimal overhead.

Also you can use iptable's connlimit target to limit connections... Say, 100 per host?

That will give you protection against 200 or 300 hosts trying to bring you down. Want to double that number? Buy another frontend.

Of course a small site can't resist a botnet 1.000.000 strong, all with dynamic IP addresses, changing every hour. If you try to firewall them you'll block the whole internet.

The solution is easy, though: just buy 1M servers, distributed by most of our planet... Just like the big sites :-)

Anyway, the reverse proxy solution is good enough for most sites. Add connlimit (or a similar feature in the edge firewall) and you have 99.9999% covered.

Apache webserver vulnerable to "slow get", too

Nuno Sa Re:Takes no talent (5 comments)

Ehehehe correct :-)

But you may also add that several options do exist to protect against this, like putting a reverse proxy in front of the web server (like most big sites do).

The submitter may want to google for squid, nginx, varnish (slashdot uses varnish, no?)...

Old news, next.....

Facebook Disabled Wikileaks Whistle Blower Account

Nuno Sa Nuno Sa writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Nuno Sa (1095047) writes "Facebook disabled access to Bradley Manning's Support Network facebook page. After many protests access was restored. Private First Class Bradley Manning, an intelligence analyst with the US Army in Baghdad, was arrested in May 2010, suspected of providing the Collateral Murder video to WikiLeaks. Manning is currently imprisoned in the brig at US Marine Corps Base Quantico in Quantico, Virginia, awaiting trial.
Another coincidence in this Wikileaks saga or just "business as usual" for Person of the Year's site Facebook? You can read the original article here."
