The moment you feel proud for your technics: my UPS

Posted 01-23-2010 at 10:36 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Currently it's 09:30 AM here(while i write this).
At 3 AM tonight we had a power off. In a large area in center of a city. My router uptime was saved by my UPS =)
I was silently playing HL ( can't I? ) and listening to music, and then WHOOPS... i thought at least the link won't go down but seems like one of critical routers was in this area. Usually we have a power offs less than 1 time per month, with a length of a few seconds or minutes. And usually link stays up since our ISPs router...

I blogged this note, to link to it, so I won't have to write the same things everytime.
If you were linked here, probably you failed to remember the actual meaning of word "hacker" (due to reading newspapers or watching news where stupids telling you a legends of script kiddies as of a legendary warriors) and you used it in a wrong context on LinuxQuestions.Org forums.

So here's your chance to fix that broken file on your heardrive.

Hacker will never...

Logical Fallacy in "The Insecurity of OpenBSD"

First off, the blogpost:

The argument here is NOT whether or not OpenBSD is secure, it's whether or not OpenBSD should implement ACL's. Granted, I'd like to see some more advanced capabilities here, too, but tossing the baby out with the bathwater seems quite silly. A new framework or mindset is needed to understand the problem.

We shall C

I mentioned in my first blog entry that it was programming that spurred my rather late in life interest in computing. Well, how much have I learned, in any language, since then? Next to nothing. I keep getting diverted. There's so much to learn using Linux, as soon as I start on one thing, something else grabs my attention.
Anyway, I'm finally going to put some effort into learning a language. Forcing myself to concentrate on one: C. So I've bought, via Amazon, these three books:
