Current Topic: Computer Networking - Making the Internet a more interesting place since 2008
Topic: Computer Networking 10:11 am EST, Dec 15, 2008

Not only a network that lets you browse the Internet anonymously, Tor contains anonymously published webpages identified by a '.onion' URL. Tor2web enables regular Internet users to access pages anonymously published within Tor.

What tor2web does for you

1. Tells the world that you can put all of your unruly, spicy content online with impunity by hosting on a Tor hidden service. It's free too!
2. Allows the world to read and spread your disruptive content as easily as browsing the web. No installation required.

(It also lets you surf-around for interesting stuff in .onion)

WARNING: tor2web does NOT protect readers, only publishers. Readers using tor2web do not have the level of anonymity, confidentiality, and authentication that they have when using a Tor client. Tor2web trades security for convenience. If you're a reader and want the extra security, install Tor.

Virgil Griffith strikes again!

Virgil's mission to conquer the keyword virgil on Google have not yet been successful. Will his latest bomb dropped on the internet bring him up from 4th place? Time will tell...

So... Anyone want to take bets on how many kiddie porn sites will this expose? - Making the Internet a more interesting place since 2008

ScreenOS 6.1.0r1 blows

So much for my five nines...

If you manage any Juniper SSG's, don't go anywhere near 6.1.0r1.

Mozy Online Backup: Simple, Automatic, Secure
Topic: Computer Networking 6:09 pm EDT, Sep 18, 2007

We believe:

* You shouldn't have to think about backup. Backup should be set up once, and then work automatically.

* Your files should be encrypted. Your backup files should be encrypted and stored in a secure, remote location that's only accessible to you — from anywhere.

* Your backups should be smart. Your backup system should be smart enough to only back up data that's not already been backed up, only back up parts of a file that have changed, and be able to back up open and locked files.

I'm trying out this service. It's free up to 2G, and only $4.95 a month for unlimited. Sounds too good to be true. I'll be sure to post my experiences with it.

North Korea to take control of .kp tld
Topic: Computer Networking 7:45 pm EDT, Aug 16, 2007

North Korea will gradually open its door to embrace the Internet when tension on the Korean Peninsula eases after the South-North summit, an expert said Thursday.

The historical moment may come in November when the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is expected to approve North Korea's Internet country domain as ``.kp.'' It is certain that North Korea will apply for the domain suffix during ICANN's regular meeting in Los Angeles between October 29 and November 2, the organization's Korean representative was quoted as saying by The Korea Business Daily.

I guess they got enough spare diesel fuel to run a nameserver..

GroundWork - Open Source IT Management
Topic: Computer Networking 8:02 am EDT, Jun 21, 2006

Integrating powerful open source software such as Nagios, RRDTool and MySQL with our own open source projects, GroundWork Monitor Professional is the first comprehensive IT infrastructure monitoring and management solution to achieve the difficult balance between functionality and affordability.

Has anyone here had any experience deploying GroundWork in an enterprise environment, using either the Professional or Open Source versions? I'm doing some research on using it in combination with Mon to weave together a NMS strategy. If anyone has any feedback, I'd love to hear it..

BBC | Net growth slowing down
Topic: Computer Networking 10:41 pm EDT, Aug 26, 2005

In a little over a year the amount of traffic flowing across Linx has risen from approximately 30 gigabits per second to more than 67 Gbit/s. In 2000 it was barely hitting 5 Gbit/s, the equivalent of a DVD film every 10 seconds.

MemeStreams user flynn23 pointed out in his post that this is in line with the net traffic growth estimates those of us in the ISP industry were making in the late 90's. The engineers were not the ones smoking crack.

It would be interesting to compare the statistics they are seeing at Linx with some of the other major exchanges. I'm sure its not that different. They mention in this article that there isn't much information about cross border traffic. That's the data I'd like to see. In my experience with asia-pac ISPs, the domestic versus international traffic statistics were interesting. Korea was almost entirely domestic (95/5), Taiwan was mostly domestic (80/20), Hong Kong was about half and half. I wonder what the situation in Europe is like.

Gangsta Gadgets - Scarface Special Edition Router
Topic: Computer Networking 9:12 am EDT, Jul  1, 2005

Were Tony Montana alive today, you know he would have used this as his DHCP server. Ideal for managing the IP addresses of up to 253 street soldiers, this box moves at cocaine-fueled speeds. As they say in Miami's underground tech support circles, "You @#$% with this router, you @#$%ing with the best!"

I would not fuck with that gateway if I were you..
