G'nite and TZAF to all
On the Upside
I learned a lot about OwnCloud, Cozy Cloud, vagrant, etc by under taking this effort. I'll keep an eye on both projects.
I'm happy with abook and remind/wyrd via ssh but wife would like a more full fledged caldav/cardcav type experinece

Glad I use a good old fashion percolator.

Woke up only to find out my router had borked minutes after I want to bed. If I didn't have servers I wouldn't care so much. Happily things like e-mail are very fault tolerant. Still I clearly need to write a scrpit on the Server that will audio alert when there is no connection out to the rest of the world. Perhaps that is what I can use the arduino i got for Christmas for.. Have it act as a server controlled power switch so the server can powercycle the router when it fucks up.

Time for this Techie to turn in.
Trying Impeller Again

I so want Impeller to be the client for my tablet. In the past various issues have made me prefer others. Today I noticed that F-Droid was behind the curve 0.7.x instead of 0.8.x so went for the direct download. Looks nice.. If I use it or not Impeller is on my to Flattr list for next month.

Aaahhh.. Skiddies, A PHP directory traversal attack against a system without PHP or any other scripting.. your lack of understanding is showing
220.127.116.11 - - [20/Feb/2014:19:14:55 -0400] “GET /index.php?option=com_myblog&Itemid=12&task=../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../..//proc/self/environ00 HTTP/1.1” 400 349 “-” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6”
Really!? Why waste my bandwidth. At least be interesting (like the borong.gif people the other day). Don't just fire a script at a site cause it has the word “blog” in it and you are hoping it is some vulnerable version of Wordpress.. Look at the site first.. does it look like a Wordpress site? Is it a site your script has any chance of working against? I'm not going to tell you to desist that would be a waste of time.. But have some pride in your craft. Put a little effort into it. At least give me interesting entries to look at…

Good News for those using Hover for their Domains. They just introduced two factor authentication see:

OK so here's a question.
As some of you know I run my own servers, email, web, xmpp, etc.
Yesterday our landlines got cut. (On DSL). So no Internet, so no server. Just got fixed 24 hours later.
So question is inexpensive options for backup bandwidth. Don't want to do VPS colo, etc. Whole point of my own server is I control the hardware and thus the data.
Was thinking of that possibility. I'll have to investigate. Data plans here in Canada are expensive for what you get. Plus I'll have to be sure they are server friendly or at least aren't blocking inbound ports like 25.
Hopefully I can find something pay-as-you-go with enough data to cover a day or two of traffic (not that much by today's standards).
Thanks for the suggestion definitely an option I'll look into.

Hmmmmm… new evilness in my webservers logs:
“GET /images/stories/borong.gif HTTP/1.1” 400 349 “-”
“GET /Sheets/E-mail_Webmail.pdf/images/stories/borong.gif HTTP/1.1” 400 349 “-” “Mozilla/5.0
Interesting that they are getting a 400 not a 404.
Clearly not a very inteligent script. But I've not seen reference to borong.gif before. Any ideas what these miscreants are after. I'm assuming it if some type of fingerprinting which if successful would invite further attention.
I'm not worried… just curious.. I'm not using a LAMP stack so no M,P or other scripting to attack.
Mostly moved over (you know except for those glitchy little things that one always seems to forget.) to my new XMPP server.
People wishing to IM me can now reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
yeah, I know now my firstname.lastname@example.org email is gonna get spam dinged.. I've got good filters.. let'em try

Back to Puma on my tablet. Sadly AndStatus had issues.
2014-02-16T22:13:46Z via AndStatus To: PublicSeems AndStatus might be slightly allergic to my normal network set-up on android. (firewalled with traffic funneled through a ssh tunnel)
2014-02-16T20:31:05Z via AndStatus To: Publicdamn what is it about AndStatus that makes me hit enter instead of backspace (thus sending malformed posts) Grrrrr.
2014-02-16T20:30:52Z via AndStatus To: PublicYeah!! Ta
