One thing a few of you may notice about this site is the photography! I’m not the worlds greatest photographer by any means, but it is a hobby that I enjoy. Most technical writing is fairly boring so I’m going to use my crazy photos to lighten things up a bit I hope you like this!
And so without further ado I thought I’d include a few recent shots!
Well a few people – not many but a few – will have noticed that the blog has been updated! Nice funky WordPress implementation and https! And it works on Mobile!!!!. I also have about 10 years worth of old blog articles that are still available hear. https://gingercatsoftware.com/Blog.php In addition to all of this I will also be reviewing all of those articles (over time) and re issuing / updating them via this WordPress format, as well of course as adding lots of new articles.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the new look and feel. Hear are a couple of additional articles I wrote at the end of last year.
So I notice the ethernet light on my wee server popping away… I check out the logs and notice something attacking my server. Ah a rather stupid brut force hack attempt. Some automated piece of (Sh!T) digital pollution – Grrrrrrr!
There is nothing quite as satisfying as watching a log go quite after executing something like.
sudo iptables -A INPUT -s NASTYIPASSRESSHEAR -j DROP
