Using Debian Businesscard install and smxi to make the perfect Debian testing/kde/smxi enhanced distro

Posted 09-09-2008 at 10:21 PM by GoinEasy9

I really wanted an easy way to install Debian based Linux on my computer(s), and I wanted a KDE desktop (rather than the gnome default Debian uses). I also wanted my install to be clean and free from the bloat that installing desktop manager software usually creates. I think I've found a great way of doing both.

There are a number of ways to install Debian. I found the business card version of their installer to fit my needs perfectly. To download the businesscard iso go to...

Can MicroHoo topple Google?

Posted 07-31-2009 at 10:38 AM by pereb

Look out, Google; MicroHoo is coming to get you. Wednesday, the deal between Microsoft and Yahoo (“MicroHoo”) was finally signed, after months of speculation and discussion. The number two and number three search engines in the U.S. have joined forces and become one. They simply couldn’t stand to sit back and watch Google corner the market anymore. It was time to topple the giant.

Google is the undisputed heavyweight of search engines; it holds 65% of the search market in the U.S.,...

Preplogic and CCNP preparation:

Posted 09-16-2009 at 01:44 PM by CiscoJim
Updated 09-16-2009 at 01:47 PM by CiscoJim

I'm going to share the experiences I've with Preplogic while preparing for my CCNP exams. I've had my CCNA for nearly 6 years now. This time around instead of just re-certifying I'm looking to take a step up. My job actually gives me an automatic raise if I obtain my CCNP so it just makes sense for me to do so.

While searching for training I asked some co-workers and the overwhelming majority stated that Preplogic offers the only high quality training product that won't cost...

Google docs, love them or only kinda like them

Posted 09-25-2009 at 04:59 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

I remember the days when free online email was a novelty. The storage space was small and the features even smaller. But the I discovered that the benefits of gettin my email on any computer outweighted the costs of fewer features. And remember these were the days when Eudora ruled the consumer desktop email market.

But soon the features caught up and now in the last 5 years not only can I get my email on any computer or laptop out there I can also get it on my iPhone or blackberry....

Logwatch, webserver logs, PHP malarky

Posted 10-03-2009 at 04:52 AM by unSpawn
Updated 04-01-2012 at 04:18 PM by unSpawn (//Enhanced logwatch/scripts/services/http diff, added Snort ET SID 2010920 rule and fail2ban regex example, fixed commas (thanks leslie_jones).)
Tags logwatch, patch, php

As I'm seeing more questions about (badly coded) web applications spawning rogue processes I wonder why people don't read their logs. Attacks require reconnaissance so keeping an eye on anything that looks like a prelude enables you to take measures. And please spend time updating when updates are released, installing apps properly (like not leaving the installation files around when docs remind you not to), hardening (any IDS, mod_security, Gotroot rulesets, mod_evasive or equivalent, PHPIDS, Suhosin,...
