Russia Bans US Use of Its Rocket Engines For Military Launches

hugetoon Re:Original ethnics groups ... (522 comments)

Then You might be interested in investigating the history of this region :

My point is: Russian speaking people of east Ukraine have graves of their grand-parents on this land.
Abolishing their language and telling them to leave if they are not happy about that seem a tad excessive so there is no surprise that they decided to fight for their independence from Kiev.

Russia Bans US Use of Its Rocket Engines For Military Launches

Agreed, in order for the analogy to be complete, Ukrainian Russians should further oppress local populations with the military support from their country of origin to the point where locals are can no longer be of any treat to them.

Hm, that's an interesting suggestion.

Then what about people in US move back wherever they came from and leave the continent to the ethnic groups that were cleared out ?

Regex Golf, xkcd, and Peter Norvig

hugetoon Re:FWIW, the Regex Golf game (172 comments)

Yep, lots of fun, thank You.

Got 3912 but I'm really confused by the "Alphabetical" level , I could craft a regex to discriminate both set that scores at 262, however I suppose it is considered cheating since I do not implement any underlying "principle" here because I cant recognize it. Any clues of what was the intent of this level?

Square Debuts New Email Payment System

hugetoon virtual paymend cards not supported (240 comments)

I tried a 1$ transfer using a virtual payment card (I can obtain a one time card number on my bank site limited to a specific amount, this is usefull for online purchases). I could not link this card: "Card not supported".
Too bad, i really wanted to test their service with a spoofed mail after doing first transaction normally.
There is no way I'll be providing them my real card number.

Hint: they do not brag about being PCI DSS certified (not even compliant) that certainly means they are not.
They only say: "You’re safe with us. The privacy and security of your financial information is our top priority." which is not very reassuring to say the least.

Producing FW rules from logs

hugetoon hugetoon writes  |  more than 5 years ago

hugetoon (766694) writes "Greetings Slashdot community,

To avoid reinventing the wheel I'd like have your opinions on how this should be done.

Rules should be in canonical form: Source,Destination,Service,Action.
Source,Destination and Service are groups of respective objects types.
Action should be "allow" or "deny" but I think it would be better to only have "allow" rules if possible.

I need to go beyond a simple " by".
At least some kind of optimization of groups contents is needed to reduce the number of resulting rules while not authorizing anything other than seen in logs.

The main difficulty I see here is to make sensible decisions when multiple group combinations are possibles.

Some A.I. tricks that would make resulting rule-base easier to read would be welcome."
