I am shutting down the blog section. Eventually will move the content to the main site. Close all post for commenting to avoid spam. Will keep the post for references
First of all Happy new Year 🙂 This year started with the release of WordPress 2.0. WordPress is going better and better. The 2.0 version is slick and you get a WYSIWYG editor among the changes. To be honest for some reason i got the latest.tar.gz containing WordPress 2.0 on Dec 27. The timestamp for […]
Some times Microsoft does good work on hardware. That is keyboards and mouse. The problem is that they do it in their own way => Friendly for the user. Or as they think that is friendly 🙂 On the office keyboards the Function keys has been replaced by functions eg Help,Undo,Redo,New etc. But i don’t […]
Today i received a strange email in my gmail account: Subject: Gouranga Call out Gouranga be happy!!! Gouranga Gouranga Gouranga …. That which brings the highest happiness!! With a little search on google i came across on references on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gouranga and the following blog. http://www.juju.org/archives/2003/04/06/call-out-gouranga-be-happy It appears that is know also as the “Hare […]
And the music stops playing….”Cause i have listened to over 600 songs this months. For the rest of the month, your free service will be reduced” 🙂 Yes it is allways open 🙂
My yahoo mail account has just been upgraded to 1 GB. Yahoo has started to follow Gmail. Even gmail is in 2 GB and counting yahoo has started to follow the competition. Let’s see if hotmail will follow also, cause my hotmail account is still in the 250MB limit
Starting from today i am a proud owner of a DM7000 🙂 It was on the whishlist for a long time. The box came with a 80GB hardisk installed=plenty of room to store recordings. First thoughts: The box is more than perfect. Channel Switching is really fast. I cannot compare it with my old skystar […]
Yesterday sveasoft released their new firmware. A lot of changes if you compare it with Alchemy, and a really nice interface The only problem is that pppoe doesn’t work. I cannot get an IP from the DHCP server. Probably they will fix it in a day or two. I will keep you posted.
I found some time today to test the openwrt (again) in my WRT54GS. I desided to drop the sveasoft firmware. The main reason is that every change in the firewall or QoS requires a reboot of the WRT54GS. Building the openwrt firmware and all the packages talk about 2 hours. I provide all the packages […]
I see a lot of people trying to find out if i have awstats installed on my web site in order to use the configdir exploit. Logged attempts include: /cgi-bin/awstats/awstats.pl /cgi-bin/awstats.pl /cgi/awstats.pl /cp/awstats.pl /awstats/awstats.pl /stat-cgi/awstats.pl /awstats/perl/awstats.pl /cgi/awstats.pl I don’t have awstats guys 🙂 🙂
I week ago i debrick a WRT54G ([url]http://blog.billy.gr/archives/2005/02/12/debrick-a-wrt54g/[/url]) unfortunately it died again. This time it wasn’t so easy. The main problem was that the CFE.BIN was corrupted = NO TFTP to put a new firmware. The solution was to find a CFE.BIN and write it again on the WRT. After finally founding an image, i […]
Slashdot has a REALLY interesting article about SHA-1. It appears that SHA-1 is broken as Bruce Schneier says in his weblog [url]http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2005/02/sha1_broken.html[/url] I work in the PKI market for about 5 years. As you can understand if SHA-1 is broken means a lot to me, you and the world.
In the 1.5 version of wordpress we have a really nice feature: “static pages” Now i am thinking to use wordpress as a cms. One of my problems with my site ([url]www.billy.gr[/url]) is that i don’t have a CMS in order to change content as often as i want. I must create a style in […]
The upgrade of wordpress from 1.2.2 to 1.5 took less that 10 minutes. And it rocks 🙂 I am missing my plugins but i will install them when the developpers update them for 1.5
Yes, the long waiting version of wordpress 1.5 it’s released. Time for upgrade 🙂 🙂 Thank you guys
I friend came a couple of hours ago with a bricked WRT54G. It isn’t so bad as it sounds. I was able to recover it in less that 15 minutes. There is a nice howto in the openwrt site ([url]http://www.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/Troubleshooting[/url]), look at the JTAG-adaptor Method. I build the adapter with one minor change. The ground […]
Hotmail service appears to be down for the last 3-4 hours. Even the check service page is giving errors….
I just login into my hotmail account to see that it is upgraded to 250MB 🙂 It looks like the trick ([url]http://blog.billy.gr/archives/2005/01/05/hotmail-account-upgraded/[/url]) work and it took less that 10 days. Nice 🙂
I had an interesting phone call today buy I guy know as my mentor since his teached me everything i know on Unix and show me the way 🙂 . I have lost his traces on the net. He was busy writing a book and learning new stuff as allways. We will arrange a coffe […]
I spend the days 6-9 on thesalloniki. I had a really really nice time, and a lot of photos too. More on that soon. Today is the first day in the office after about 10 days…. A lot of stuff to take care off…
