Excerpt: At least not necessarily … Anyone with a shred of intellectual honesty would notice the following highlighted copyright headers in the widely circulated "embarrassment" that everyone (even those who can't write a lick of C/C++ or ASM) criticized. Unfortunately, too many people blame Microsoft without actually thinking. Freescale may have actually been caught red-handed and with its pants down. Notably, the bug did not affect the Zune models above 30GB. So Freescale knew about the bug, corrected it in a new driver for a new chipset, and then Microsoft may have not been notified. News agencies were quick to say…

Excerpt: You thought cheap webhosting was a bargain. Maybe … but bad webhosting isn't just a bummer — it can get you delisted, added to badware lists, etc. And it doesn't have to be your fault (directly, anyway). Use IX Web Hosting | ixwebhosting.com web hosting at your own risk. One day you might just get hacked and/or defaced. Even worse, you might be — courtesy of some Turkish hacker — installing malware on users' computers by proxy. The hackers seem to be pretty good, if a little mean. Fix it, and then it just might happen the…

Excerpt: PHP doesn't come with native support for making SSH connections via the libssh2 libraries. You must use the PECL SSH2 extensions. Installing them can be tricky, but Kevin van Zonneveld does a great job explaining how to install them over here. So I won't go there. The new version, 0.11.0, also seems to be compiling more reliably for everyone. Unfortunately, the library is sparsely documented, and still buggy in some places. And most of the comments posted on http://www.php.net/ssh2 are just plain wrong! Kudos to Mike Sullivan for fixing some of the issues with non-blocking…

Excerpt: You like SEO and intuitive pagination controls? Well, we decided to release our SEO Pager control that we've been using for awhile over here anyway. So here's the scoop — This Wordpress plugin implements a multi-page customizable pager to replace the standard, boring WordPress "Earlier Posts" and "Newer Posts" links. This improves SEO as well as usability. In addition to this it presents some related SEO options. Its features include — * Set SEO-Pager to either a plain or boxed style. * No need to edit a stylesheet either! Just enter hex color value or name for border, background, text, and…

Excerpt: WordPress is great. So are most other free and/or open-source applications. The only problem with these applications is that no matter how secure the other parts of your web site are, using such a popular application makes you an easy target for their widely circulated exploit scripts. There are lots of prying eyes on, say, WordPress. And exploiting popular open-source applications is interesting, because you get more bang for your buck. Upgrading helps, and of course we do it. But it still won't help for 0-day exploits, and it's not easy when you're managing…

Excerpt: … or how to avoid needing this shirt.Your boss sucks, and so does this economy. I try to be a good boss, but realistically I probably suck too. Since I'm that guy … and I'm the guy who decides things, let me tell you 5 ways — at least in my mind — that will help you keep your job at a smaller IT firm. 0. Learn to be useful in another IT capacity If you stink at HTML, learn it better. Developers frequently won't know all of the pains of cutting HTML pixel-perfect or dealing with Photoshop; but…

Excerpt: "Warning: (1) This Device May Not Cause Harmful Interference" Except for that ridiculously sloppy (and funny!) typo, and the missing Apple glyph, the counterfeit my father received from eBay is really authentic-looking. The counterfeiters … 1. Deceptively make the power supply look like the original (minus the Apple logo). 2. Use the same model number (A1172) to further mislead and allow sellers to mislead consumers. 3. Even more frighteningly, it does not put out the proper voltage according to my trusty multi-meter — at least not the same voltage as the OEM Apple part! Other differences include the fact that it's slightly thicker, the circular ring…

Excerpt: Sure, it might get you the wrong type of attention, or people might suspect you wear a tin foil hat to receive better reception, but this is one of the most artful pieces of link bait I've seen: "The 'socialist' label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots." "J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality." Come on, now? That's a bit of…
