I've got much the same problem in reverse trying to help a local school admin block YouTube on their network. I really think these "Social" Networks pull this kind of shit intentionally just to make filtering it more (and completely unnecessarily) difficult - Can U say 'Scattered to the four winds"?:

Speaking as a Floridian since 1967... ^That is NOT an exaggeration.

103  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best program for filtering access to website by IP address on: February 28, 2015, 11:49:05 AM
Um...

Tghis is a small website that is only up for the people who work here to use.

So now we go from singular...

That seems like kind of an odd thing to need for a web server ... How much unwanted traffic are you getting??

Chances are if it's that high, there is a reason for it that needs to be solved...not filtered.

not so much but it is annoying to see malwarebytes blocking a single ip as Malicious when it hits the sites over and over.
there are 100 sites total on one server

...To incredibly not singular.

Which compels me to re-stress the initial question ... What problem are we trying to solve??

I can't fathom that you have 100 sites for employee use only. So I'm guessing that you have a single site on a shared host for the staff to use. And under the as described circumstances...that's very (very...) bad...for your companies domain name.

Here's why: Some Email black lists - most actually - work off the IP address given in the MX records only. However others - and by that I mean just enough to really screw you royally - work off of the IP address of the root domain name. So, if MBAM - a strictly client side filter - is flagging your employee site domain name, then Your Mail Server IS Black Listed by those filters that block based on the reputation of the root domain name.

I'm currently going through this with one of our clients. Their Email - which is hosted by MS Exchange Online (e.g. Microsoft itself) - has a completely flawless reputation. Yet they consistently get blacklist rejections from certain domains that use the root domain based filtering, because their website is currently hosted on a shared host that has a hacked website that got the IP address they are all behind blacklisted. You don't need an IP filter...you need a new host.

In our normal base 10, we have a protocol for SPEAKING large numbers, so 154 is "one hundred and fifty four".

IIRC you aren't supposed to say and when speaking numbers...did that change?
105  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pick a number between 1 and 10 on: February 27, 2015, 12:09:34 PM
A key part of the bit is that you're only allowed to ask one question.
106  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pick a number between 1 and 10 on: February 27, 2015, 06:49:53 AM
IIRC who you ask is irrelevant, you ask one guard what the other would say and then do the opposite. Because the liar would give the wrong answer (by nature), and the truth teller would give the liars lie.

A hardware jumper to enable any firmware flashing seems like a great idea for all devices.

hey!  I like that!

I did too initially, but I don't think it will scale well for data centers that have (SAN) racks full of drives that would then need to be physically touched.

On behalf of all of us who use it, thank you for your work on it Two_toNe!!!!  Kiss Kiss Kiss

A big +1 to that! Two_toNe's work on T-Clock helped me immensely in getting it past the x64 hurdle.

But just to keep the record straight, White Tiger is the T-Clock's current curator, as I bowed out due to time constraints about a year ago.

There are 100 or so certificates (including 27 "Untrusted certificates") installed on my system - and I think that my anti-malware should tell me if they're OK or not.

Why? SSL Certs only serve to verify the identity of the entity on the other end of a connection ... Not the purity of their intentions..

This might (be fun to play with) work for the remote wakeup part.
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: remote control of pc via android phone on: February 19, 2015, 04:00:08 PM
Microsoft RDP is also the only thing that's ever shown me exactly the same thing as I see on the computers monitor unlike various forms of VNC I've tried.

Same here, I've been sold on TS/RDP since the NT4 days ... I just never thought of trying it with/from a phone. But... I guess I'll have to give it a shot (eek!).


Do I understand it correctly that it only works with pro/ultimate and server versions of Windows?

Yes, but there is a hack/patch available to enable it in/for Home Premium (I've never tried it).
117  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: remote control of pc via android phone on: February 19, 2015, 06:38:30 AM
Microsoft Remote Desktop - Remote PC access (works better than any other Android remote app I've tried).

Really?! I've always been a bit to skeptical (to try it) about the screen size making it impossible to do effectively ...(yes I am playing the tiny text/old guy card here)... But you're saying it is actually a viable option?
118  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Long essay on the business of starting (feminist) collaborative publications on: February 18, 2015, 10:34:00 PM
What exactly is "feminist tech"? What makes technology either feminist or MRA? Machines have no gender. Nor does the machine care about the users gender.

Valid and interesting question. The company I work for is owned by a woman - a fact that is completely irrelevant to day to day operations. To me, making these distinctions only server to create and exacerbate a situation that would have otherwise never existed.

No.

(and as an aside, sometimes, humor is the only medicine for such truths)

Yeah...humor, whistling in the dark, and substance 'abuse' are pretty much the top 3 coping mechanisms available. cheesy

Create a blank text file, type "anything" in it, save it as anything.html, then open it and check the DOM again. You'll see that the DOM is there, even though you only typed "anything". Now, do a view source and you'll see "anything", but no head or body or html tags

Behavior was the same as the external 'Boo!' page...the head/body tags were there.


O_o Okay, Digging in a level.. I fired up my copy of the Fiddler Web Debugger (really cool freeware), and let it run while requesting the page so it would record (and display) the entire exchange.

...and it shows nothing really exciting happening; basic request; basic response; no cookies; total replied content=boo!

Given the pitch, I was expecting it to tell me what I had for breakfast yesterday morning ... But no matter how I view the source, it just says boo!


What's funky here is that view source shows nothing, but the document says, "Boo!" Which, is kind of spooky as the site hosts security material, and that's the home page.

Looks more to me like the site's home page is actually at http://www.tombom.co.uk/blog and the (url masking/) root level redirector is broken. They're specialty is after all hardware hacking it appears, and as we all know (sh)IT Happens. cheesy

Back when we were having an argument ... discussion of alternative methods of contact cleaning  smiley

See, I told you I was old - That was only 6 years ago...and I forgot already. cheesy

125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Win7 update loop on: February 14, 2015, 10:02:27 AM
However, automatic updates are not enabled and there is at least 1 pending update which hasn't been installed, once again suggesting my son wasn't responsible. He wouldn't have any reason to pick just 1 to install.

Hm... same here, is yours KB3021917 from 2/10/15 also?
