UEFI Drove Me Home... to Puppy

Posted 12-07-2013 at 03:14 PM by zaivala

OK, you read my last blog.

I tried everything. LinuxMint Olivia 64 wrote its entire self to my hard drive. But it would not boot. Still got Windoze, only used my D: (sda4) partition. Thought I'd try the latest Ubuntu.

I got about 4 steps into Ubuntu, NOT including saying "Install", and tried to back out as it did not have good options to select. Then I noticed I no longer had ANY WINDOWS. Contacted ASUS techs, and got no help. Was running Mint off a livedisk...

iptables revisited

Posted 12-05-2013 at 03:05 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I spent a bit of time revamping my iptables rules on a public torrent/voip server of mine, so I figured I would dump them here (sanitized) for future reference:

Code:
root@dfw:~# iptables -nvL
Chain INPUT (policy DROP 0 packets, 0 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         
   47  1896 LOG-DROP   all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0            ctstate INVALID /* SCANS AND SUCH? */

That's a good read and I highly recommend everyone read it. It tells you about mitigating brute force attacks by modifying iterations of hashes. It even has a little button that computes 1 seconds worth of hashes automatically so that it takes one second...
