SourceForge "removes" ban set at 25.01.2010

Posted 02-08-2010 at 01:59 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

It seems like yesterday SF.net decided to give up with forced ban(more: SF blog, my post) of Syria, Iran, Sudan, North Korea and Cuba, and now they provide users with option "Export Control", allowing to opt in or opt out for ban.
By default, all projects have that ban enabled.
Read this @ sf.net blog.
But you know, the way it's done... The way it was done initially can only point me to "Prepare for unforeseen consequences" (C) G-Man, Half-Life 2 Episode...

USA, GoDaddy and stupid supporters

Posted 02-08-2010 at 11:04 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Yesterday I've started to think about securing my services with trusted SSL certs, so I've googled for "Multiple Hostname X509" and found several good articles on generating those and link to godaddy.com, as they can sign those.
I've looked through their site, found no really good explanation for most of things, and decided to poke their support.
Here is what I sent:

nginx 'autoindex' module bug: patch committed

Posted 02-07-2010 at 05:17 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags bug, nginx, patch

Two or three days ago I was cleaning up my webserver hosts, and adding some stuff.
Occasionally, I've created a file with name containing '?'(question sign) in it. This directory had autoindex enabled, served by nginx.
I've tried to view the directory listing in my browser(just to see how it is shown) and found a bug: autoindex module wasn't URL-encoding the question sign. So it resulted in request to /somedir/filename instead of /somedir/filename%3f as it should have been.
