📌 It's hard to like Android. - jerakeen.org

“[Android is] Linux vs Windows/MacOS, all over again. You gain Freedom by using an open platform, making life worse for yourself in a thousand tiny ways, any one of which can easily be dismissed, so they are. But it’s still worse.” Unfortunately, this perfectly mirrors my experiences with Android, too. I’m trying really hard to like my G1, but all it does is make me realize how much better my iPhone is. #

📌 Python Projects in Users’ Home Directories with wsgi | Code Spatter

Nice technique for lightweight WSGI apps without needing to touch your Apache conf after the initial setup. I’d like to do something like this for my personal site so that it’s easier to deploy quick & dirty apps. #

📌 mikas blog » Blog Archive » Maintain /etc with mercurial on Debian

I’ve done this with svn in the past, but it’s a major pain (svn’s lack addremove means you’ve got to do it by hand). This looks like a *much* better way. #

📌 blog gnist org - Holliday cracking

Really interesting analysis of a cracked Linux box. We’re lucky that these script kiddies always seem to make some stupid mistakes (in this case not cleaning up .bash_history); a good cracker probably wouldn’t be detected for months. #
