eBay and banks need to implement SPF and Domain Keys

eBay and banks really need implement SPF, Sender Policy Framework and DomainKeys. There I said it. I see quite a few Phishing attacks every day. And just about all of them aren’t caught by SpamAssassin. Technically they aren’t spam, so that does make sense. But what bothers me is that this is easy mitigate for […]

Yahoo hosting PHP

Found this rather interesting: It’s been known for a while Yahoo is a PHP user, but it’s interesting to see them giving back. Very cool.

Gbrowser Redux

An interesting post on an allegedly new Googlebot. I’ve got no clue about the truth or accuracy of it, but the article thinks Googlebot is no longer a lynx like browser, but based on Mozilla. It would make sense, so Google can take better advantage of things like CSS, JavaScript. Perhaps it’s using <canvas/> to […]

Norton AntiVirus doesn’t like Windows Defender

I upgraded from MS AntiSpyware to Windows Defender. Seems Norton AntiVirus doesn’t exactly like it. In Norton’s Log Viewer are a ton of the following: Event Details: Time: 2/22/2006 8:02:17 PM Actor: C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MsMpEng.exe (PID=464) Target: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccLgView.exe Action: Unauthorized access Reaction: Unauthorized access stopped www.symantec.com Not nearly as bad as Kaspersky […]

Really Busy

I’ve been really busy lately, hence posting is a bit light. I plan to pickup soon. I’ve been working on many things. On a side note, switching programming languages (Visual Basic .NET, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, PHP, Perl) all in one day can be very confusing at times. I’ve been finding myself mixing up syntax quite […]

Google Widget Licensing?

Google’s Personal Homepages allow for some really neat widgets. Interestingly, there are quite a few by Google Inc, that even provide source code, so you can see exactly how they were made (super cool!). There is something that concerns me though. No mention on licensing, or how it would even work. Say, someone wanted to […]

True Hackers

I’ve been saying for quite a while that true hackers, aren’t the stereotyped computer nerds. They are just observant people who know what to look for. That article is a little disturbing, but nothing strange. I remember a year or two ago when someone had a “Google Hack” to find those Axis cameras, many not […]

Cheney’s Got A Gun

Best Aerosmith Parody ever: Cheney’s Got A Gun Absolutely brilliant. You seriously have to question if the guy was suicidal to go out into the woods with Dick Cheney holding a gun. It’s like walking into a tiger pit with fillet mignon in your pockets. [Hat tip: Digg]

Intel Mac UserAgent

To continue with my last post, I did some digging to see what the useragent on the new Intel Mac’s were. A while back, I was wondering what they would change it to. I now have the answer: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/417.9 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/417.8 For Firefox, it’s not […]

Apple is still using 64-bit Processors

Several months ago I asked if Apple would continue to use widely advertised 64-bit processors after moving to Intel. Apple spent a lot of time/money telling people 64-bit was the future, and the G5 was perfect. Even upon release of the first Intel Mac’s, it wasn’t clear if they were 64-bit or 32-bit. Supposedly they […]
