The Internet

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 18:45:50 +0000

This was on my home page a LOT of time ago, found it again today among old stuff Q: But what *IS* the internet? A: It’s the largest equivalence class in the reflexive transitive symmetric closure of the relationship “can be reached by an IP packet from”. –Seth Breidbart [From Craig Simon on the IETF … Continue reading "The Internet"

No news is good news :)

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 18:59:48 +0000

Ok, it’s been five years from the last post. Five. Years. It’s not I gave up having fun building/breaking stuff, but there’s not much of what I’ve been doing lately that may interest my geek friends. :\ Changed city, changed employer (still red though), always in the quest to do something fun and interesting.

Wed, 07 Mar 2012 21:11:05 +0000

We’re so used to the restrictions applied to passengers of flights, that we almost think of them as routine, while we should … Continue reading "Northwest Flight 253 and the “security” of it all"

Intel’s Activex

Thu, 03 Dec 2009 19:38:34 +0000

So, who am I supposed to trust? (it turns out that Husdawg LLC is a perfectly “legal” ActiveX provider, but Intel does not mention them anywhere — just hoping people will click through?)

Snow Leopard Trash, again

Thu, 12 Nov 2009 22:58:11 +0000

At first I did not notice, but emptying the trash took ages, even “not securely”. Well, being the geek I am I did a quick dtruss on the Locum process, which spit out a huge list of write_nocancel syscalls. So, it seems it was actually writing stuff over the files I asked him to delete, … Continue reading "Snow Leopard Trash, again"
