SSH Password Gropers Are Now Trying High Ports

urbieta yep, I do vpn (349 comments)

thanks for the compliment lol! #no public ssh :P iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -i $INTERNET --dport 22 -j DROP PLUS I still use ssh keys, just in case. My fingers thank me because I no longer have to type the same thing all over again all day. My brain thanks me because I am no longer trying to remember a long password anymore (dont remember how long has it been since I no longer used passwords on public ports). YES, this is a lazy passphrase free key, so what! I am a cool kid and I can do what I want to haha

Ask Slashdot: Really Short Time Wasters?

urbieta walk arround, or move to small town (279 comments)

a body standing still all day is just plain wrong, ask any doctor how to fix that I recently moved to a small town because there is a lot of competition in the big city for the business I am investing in. I am currently writing this in my pajamas 8:30 am, this used to be the time AFTER I was rushing to work in the big city, I enjoy walking around more here, people smile and say good morning/afternoon/evening and the chicks love geeks who understand their smartphones need I say more? naaaa

Are Microsoft bribed government tie-ins illegal?

urbieta urbieta writes  |  more than 5 years ago

urbieta writes "I work in IT for a local mexican private university, we have been sending student information to our government officials in old BDF format for years with the software they provide us, but the new version requires a "Microsoft SQL SERVER" to operate! and a license of course just to install the government`s software on our pc. I just found out, so my first thought is corruption, bribes, or complete incompetence from our government officials (yeah right!), so how do you suggest I start fending off this B.S.?"

Mexican local state strikes public access pornography! weee!

urbieta urbieta writes  |  more than 12 years ago

Acording to Mural local newpaper, Mexicos' Jalisco state plans on
censoring public acces computers to deny kids access to pornography and playing music (the music part appears on the printed newspaper only), the rest is about requiring IDs to professionals working with computers and the internet like photographers and so on with direct access to the public. I think its back to tv for them kids, I say you go Gov! ;) BTW, any offender will be closed down!
