I will stop using email@example.com shortly. If you want to stay in contact via jabber please use firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rumor has it that cisco is the most common password on Cisco devices not because it’s the default password on the device (normally there isn’t any password and you have to use the serial console for the initial configuration) but it’s the default example password in the documentation and training materials. People like to follow step-by-step documentation and will most likely enter anything without thinking.
There are also rumors that some company’s use the IP subnet from a completely different company because someone used this network to write the documentation. So please:
some month ago I started playing Command and Conquer Tiberium Alliance. I think it’s a lot of fun.
If you want to join in use the following URL so I get some extra resoureces (I’m playing on World 53, World 72, World 67 and Welt 28 (German)).
Some time ago I moved my blog, mail and jabber server to a new server (or to be more precises to a virtual servers on a new physical server). I still have to move some
Apache vhosts which will happen during the week, most probably May 1st.
When working as a freelancer you often have to deal with strange people. I already mentioned iOS vs IOS earlier.
Here are some examples:
“I’ll just send you an email about a very interesting project” – “Just” meaning phone call first then hitting send.
Or (two weeks ago): “We need someone for an IPv6 workshop in two weeks” – As I just had two days left and the customer was on the route between two other customers. I answered but got no reply. Then last week (different company offering the project, same text): “We need someone for an IPv6 workshop this week. Or next week!”
And another favorite: “Opportunité de mission pour un ingénieur checkpoint”. Whats wrong with that? I don’t speak French and I’m not working with Check Point firewalls.
Haven’t posted for quite some time, but I’ll (again) promise to write more often.
and you have local access to the server and are using Debian: Try using the credentials from /etc/mysql/debian.cnf.
I stopped using my jabber account jenslink
I was asked to check some Linux servers / services:
Linux -> Firefox -> SSL VPN -> Remote Desktop -> Fail
Linux -> Windows 7 VM -> Firefox -> SSL VPN -> Remote Desktop -> Windows 2003 Terminalserver -> Putty -> Server
I guess I should recommend more complexity.
And by the way: Why is nobody using ssh-keys in a corporate environment.
I was offered a new project recently. From the mail: “Lea 2 / Lea 3 Know How”.
I guess they meant Layer.
