Don't use VPN services.

No, seriously, don't. You're probably reading this because you've asked what VPN service to use, and this is the answer.

Note: The content in this post does not apply to using VPN for their intended purpose; that is, as a virtual private (internal) network. It only applies to using it as a glorified proxy, which is what every third-party "VPN provider" does.

  • There's also this article about VPN services, which is honestly better written (and has more cat pictures!) than my article.

One-line Tree in Python

Using Python's built-in defaultdict we can easily define a tree data structure:

def tree(): return defaultdict(tree)

That's it!

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.
View gist:17c56b77a90073be81d3
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).
