Posted 01-11-2006 at 09:02 PM by unSpawn

If you've read the SANS Top 20 of 2005 (http://www.sans.org/top20/)) there is a clear message with respect to deploying PHP-driven applications: be paranoid or be cracked. A short tour of a few vulnerability reporting sites show that with programmers who can't be arsed to follow the most basic principles of programming, who force users to run their app with all essential security features off and with undereducated users running apps without questioning this will be another wonderful year for your...

HP Omnibook 550 USB Wireless

Posted 01-11-2006 at 04:40 AM by geirh

Hi,

Posted 01-09-2006 at 12:15 AM by microsoft/linux

Ok, so I got a 30 GB iPod for christmas, and I have some decent sucess with linux. Below is how I've gotten it working with debian etch.

This guy apparently is a debian developer, and has made a patch for gtkpod to allow transfer of video. This is extremely useful. I use handbrake for video conversion.

Code:
# mkdir /mnt/ipod

Code:
/dev/sda2       /mnt/ipod
