China domain name land grab about to start

Paul Woodhouse

easy enough using pinyin, would be a much steeper learning curve if it was zhuyin, the wife's from taiwan so I have to set her keyboard up for zhuyin input, I learned Chinese on the mainland though, so I use pinyin... doesn't half cause amusement..

Sysadmins: Your best tale of woe wins a PRIZE

Paul Woodhouse

one word...

Exchange...

had a particularly crap spec 2K3 SBS server running exchange, average size of mailbox prob. around 10GB, naturally it would frequently die, the HDD died in a slow strange fashion at one point, still working to the point where it corrupted my backups as well... spent a full weekend getting that lot back, (mainly by hacking peoples OST files into PST ones) one of the directors woke me up at the desk I had finally passed out at on Monday morning and the first thing he said was do you know email isn't working?

It's ba-ack. Exploit revives slain browser history bug

Paul Woodhouse

hmm...

Doesn't this mean that you have to tell it what websites you want it to check for?... rather than just ask your computer which websites you've been to... if a NAT'd computer is behind a caching proxy, isn't it likely that you'll get the same results for every computer in that network as well...

neat though...

Mystery over bogus Facebook login data dump

Paul Woodhouse

This sentance contains so much FAIL

Create a complex password using upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters such as $%&!. Devise a way to differentiate your password for each site you use, for example putting the first and last letters of the web site name at the beginning and end of your initial complex password, making it unique yet easy to remember

Back to the Future DeLorean to go under the hammer

Paul Woodhouse

heh, I've had a hankering for a DeLorean for ages...

The main thing that puts me off is I'd end up on an assault charge for twatting the 50th person who asked me where the flux capacitor is...

but that Volvo/Renault engine can be upgraded to the one from an Alpine Turbo very easily... mmmmm
