Depending on the perspective either good news or bad news…..

I guess I need to make another list as Slabbed turns 8 years old. First on my list and already checked off was a crash course on 17 USC 512(f). Many other items remain unchecked including the Singing River Disaster and a couple or two or three ongoing federal criminal investigations here in Mississippi. Meanwhile how about a trip down memory lane?

As we rush to the holidays and close out 2015, the Chinese Year of the Goat, I wish to thank you for being in that number.

Slabbed is looking for a Linux consultant familiar with creating HA Clusters

Slabbed is looking for a Linux consultant familiar with using Heartbeat and Pacemaker to accomplish the task of clustering three single role file servers into a three node HA cluster that will host Slabbed as we continue to become hip to the Kernel. Anyone with this skill looking to make a buck should contact me here. Thank you.

I am immediately notified every time there is a failed attempt to login to the Slabbed New Media website and these events, complete with external IP addresses are cataloged and saved.

The Slabbed website has been under cyber attack for the past three weeks, nothing serious, my guess being some loser with lots of spare time on his hands that systematically enters the same user name hundreds of times with different password combos with each bad try locked out then rerouting using The Onion Router (TOR) moving on to the next user name/password combo try. This method is very clumsy and time consuming thus the “loser with lots of spare time” hypothesis.

But TOR has its limitations including sometimes routing via exit nodes that are unencrypted and if those exit nodes happen to be in the US, then there is a remedy.
