1 day downtime

Just got online after 1-day downtime.
It's all because of me.
About a week ago my router(PI 200mhz PC) started making a noise, I got it open to see what's causing it. It was old 4x4 fan. I "fixed" it(in fact stroke it several times) and forgot about it. I was wrong. I needed to buy a new fan once it happened.

SourceForge "removes" ban set at 25.01.2010

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:

Hacking SSH: un-forward local ports

Posted 02-04-2010 at 09:36 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Yesterday I was trying to implement a feature allowing me to unforward the ports while connected.
Here is current development progress(which is stopped atm) but the beta-version of solution has been released.
p.s. I also posted that to OpenSSH developers.

Yet another portion of philosophy. If you are not interested, don't read or comment this entry.

Duplicated here.

Most of us wondering "what is Life? How to deal with it?" I will try to give you an answer on this topic.
