Facebook Perl source code from 2005. When browsing around thefacebook.com in 2005 the server spit out some server-side source code rather than running it. I believe this was for their old graph feature that let you visualize the graph between all your friends. The filename is `mygraph.svgz` and contains some gems such as a commented out "zuck" d…

Camlistore Encryption on S3

Here's what I found out while setting up Camlistore to sync encrypted blobs to Amazon S3. This works for me, but I'm new to Camlistore so this might not be the best way to do it.

Amazon S3 Config

The encryption handler requires two buckets, one for metadata and one for blobs. In this example, I've created two buckets called my-camlistore-meta and my-camlistore-blob.

It's not just superfish that's the problem.

Superfish uses an SDK from Komodia to do SSL MITM. That's probably known by now.
Superfish isn't the only product to use that sdk. there's others too.
Each product that uses the Komodia SDK to MITM, has its OWN CA cert and private
key pair. Seems a lot of people think they all use the superfish cert. That is
NOT the case.
First thing I checked was komodia's own parental control software,
Keep My Family Secure. (mentioned on komodia's own website).

Dear Phiharmonics,

There are a lot of wireless devices in my home and at my workplace and I believe they sometimes interfere with my research. I have some questions about whether your wi-fi energy dots could help me out in harmonizing my living spaces.

1.) What is the effective range of the harmonizing? Do they ever need to be replaced? If so, does more wifi wear them out faster?

2.) Is the harmonizing compatible with all of the IEEE 802.11 wireless standards or only b/g? And Bluetooth?

3.) They look like they're made of copper but you don't specify what, exactly, they are or what's in them. Do they still work if adhered to a conductive surface? Is it okay if they get wet?

Python script to fetch stock prices for gnucash using http://alphavantage.co/ api. Since Quotes::Finance fetching from Yahoo finance no longer works, it is an alternative.

# INSTALL DEPENDENCIES BEFORE RUNNING: pandas, sqlite3, sqlalchemy, requests
# There is one thing you have to do though: gnucash needs to know the price's currency and it needs a guid (unique identifier)
# for this. This guid is unique for each installation, so you need to find yours and assign it to CURRENCY_GUID.
# OR: you can just leave it, and the script will fetch the currency from the last price added

Traduzione in italiano dell'Hacker Manifesto
View La Coscienza di un Hacker
Questa è una traduzione in italiano del celebre Hacker Manifesto. Tutte quelle
esistenti contengono grossolani errori, perlopiù dovuti ad una carente
comprensione della materia e del periodo, o in ogni caso sono poco fedeli al
contenuto e allo spirito dell'originale. Mi auguro che questa mia traduzione non
soffra degli stessi problemi. Sail strong.
