Linux Advocacy
Today the server arived. A nice 3 GHZ Xeon /1GByte and a large giga sized mega-raid.Installation went fine.

I helped the sys admin to install linux (FC2 with KDE). He was verry
possetive and thought that is was really similar to windows.
(In the possitive way I think). The server is used as a database server (with Postgres).
Firefox
Donated 30$ for the ad campaign.
I read about a article about crashing browser because of mallformet html pages.
I wrote a little C program wich produce a file with random text and tags. It is 100% invalid html code, and I hoped (grinn) to crash firefox and mozilla.
But that didn't happen, instead it produced sometimes nice looking html pages. At the end it proves that a random generator can produce a better web site than Yahoo.

You can try, the source is available here

compile: gcc chk.c -o chk

run: ./chk <filename>

eg ./chk o.htm
