Can you believe this!? two... TWO years without any entry in this diary!

So what's up?

I don't live in canada anymore :(, I've moved back home.

I have a new job, as an "IT Manager". (I don't know how to translate accurately my job title from my native langage to english.)

Anyway, may be I should start writing some few ideas or rants in that diary. Even though my english, have never been so bad!

Oh my ..!!! Today will be a tough day, It's 7:56 am and I didn't sleep... I've coded all night long. Why the hell did I do that ?

Ok, playing with python was cool. Even though in this little exercise I didn't used all the python features I already like the OOP flavour that python gave to my code. I mean I like that python give me the inclination to use OOP. I like the error handling scheme and a lot of other stuffs (some interesting datatypes).

By the way, I don't think I'll switch from perl to python. I am in a relationship with perl ;)

Anyway, It's hard to work today because I'm sick! Took me three hours to make some basic stuffs I usually do in half an hour!! Fever and headache ruin my productivity! I think it's time for caffeine...

I've decided to take a break in 'motion' coding this week-end, and to give a look at python langage. I am coding a small ident server (rfc1413) python module just to get used to python syntax.

Beer! Ok, today was a good day.

I've done some real work on 'motion' (Yet another PHP+MySQL e-commerce engine). The name is not fixed. I call it 'motion' for some obscure reasons I don't even remember myself...

AFAIK, the buzz around ISN predictability is justified. They might have found a more accurate way to predict ISNs due to a not truly random generation of this ISN by the ip stack. Well I'd prefered a new attack scenario involving this old and well known TCP weakness.

Geez, my english is so broken !!! ...

Bad day. Bad mood. No code.

I really wonder what Guardent's guys have discovered about TCP ISN predictability. They must have found something big, otherwise why all this buzz around something that we know since years?!

Creation of a freeshell account

I have packaged the first release of fetchcam. The script is perfectly working here since one week.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
