Windows Supports Linux!

It was about time this happened, and honestly, I’m going to personally write a letter of recommendation to everyone that wants to use Windows this way. The procedure is simple, I can offer free trainings on it, I will even come to your place, almost for free… 

Below you have a basic example, but the various situations you can take advantage of this situation are basically limitless…

How to write a paper in college/university

Damn damn damn, all this below sounds exactly like I used to do things back in the day… funny as hell tho…

[Via Alex N]

1. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a well lit place in front of your computer.

2. Log onto Gmail and ICQ (be sure to go on away!). Check your email.

3. Read over the assignment carefully, to make certain you understand it.

4. Walk down to the vending machines and buy some chocolate to help you concentrate.

5. Check your email.

6. Call up a friend and ask if he/she wants to go to grab a coffee.  Just to get settled down and ready to work.

7. When you get back to your room, sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well lit place.

8. Read over the assignment again to make absolutely certain you understand it.

9. Check your email.

10. You know, you haven’t written to that kid you met at camp since fourth grade. You’d better write that letter now and get it out of the way so you can concentrate.

11. Look at your teeth in the bathroom mirror.

12. Grab some mp3z off of kazaa.

13. Check your email. ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR YET?!

14. MSN chat with one of your friends about the future. (ie summer plans).

15. Check your email.

16. Listen to your new mp3z and download some more.

17. Phone your friend on the other floor and ask if she’s started writing yet. Exchange derogatory emarks about your prof, the
course, the college, the world at large.

18. Walk to the store and buy a pack of gum. You’ve probably run out.

19. While you’ve got the gum you may as well buy a magazine and read it.

20. Check your email.

21. Check the newspaper listings to make sure you aren’t missing something truly worthwhile on TV.

22. Play some solitare (or age of legends!).

23. Check out

24. Wash your hands.

25. Call up a friend to see how much they have done, probably haven’t started either.

26. Look through your housemate’s book of pictures from home. Ask who everyone is.

27. Sit down and do some serious thinking about your plans for the future.

28. Check to see if has been updated yet.

29. Check your email and listen to your new mp3z.

30. You should be rebooting by now, assuming that windows is crashing on schedule.

31. Read over the assignment one more time, just for heck of it.

32. Scoot your chair across the room to the window and watch the sunrise.

33. Lie face down on the floor and moan.

34. Punch the wall and break something.

35. Check your email.

36. Mumble obscenities.

37. 5am – start hacking on the paper without stopping. 6am -paper is finished.

38. Complain to everyone that you didn’t get any sleep because you had to write that stupid paper.

39. Go to class, hand in paper, and leave right away so you can take a nap.

Inca un spam / phishing scam – QUINIGOL

Hai sa facem un mic exercitiu practic de gandire LOGICA:

Ce se intampla in momentul in care primesti un mail care iti spune ca ai castigat ceva? 10.000 de EURO!!! Mai mult?! Avem sa zicem 2 variante, grosso modo:

a) Esti omul care e destul de obisnuit cu “online-ul”

b) iti verifici mailurile o data pe saptamana, si astepti vesti de la rude din strainatate, sau astepti mesaje de la prieteni doar, nu folosesti internetul zilnic, si nu reprezinta o parte importanta a cunostintelor/experientelor tale. Esti un incepator in ale internetului, ai nevoie de ajutor sa ti se reinstaleze windowsul…

Rezultatele acelui mail despre care vorbeam in al foilea paragraf, e simplu:

a) fuck it, e spam. Delete, trash, bla bla.

b) WOW! Am castigat! Dar cum se poate? nici nu am jucat!Repede sa vedem despre ce e vorba…

Evident varianta a) nu ne intereseaza, dar ce face persoana de la Varianta b) ? Citeste atasamentul, da click pe link, si pana la urma din 500 de oameni 450 ajung sa isi dea datele, care vor fi vandute mai departe pe bani buni. Mergand mai departe, in unele cazuri din cei 450, probabil 10 – 20 o sa continue “discutia” cu persoanele care au trimis mesajul initial, o sa ajunga sa depuna bani la banca intr-un anume cont sau sa ii trimita prin Western Union, MoneyBookers sau alta agentie similara spre acel expeditor initial, pentru ca acesta sa poata rezolva cateva probleme “aparute” pe parcurs, nu se pot scoate banii din banca din cauza unor comisioane, trebuie platit avocatul, trilili lalala si asa mai departe… Esti sigur ca nu vrei sa fii unul din cei 450? Atunci, daca totul pare OK cu un mesaj pe care l-ai primit, inainte sa iti trimiti datele, incearca sa intrebi un prieten, sau un vecin, sau pe oricine care are un pic mai multa experienta decat tine in ale calculatoarelor. Nu fii mare si tare! Nu ai nimic de pierdut daca intrebi pe cineva!

Acel cineva, 99,99% din cazuri iti va spune ca e doar SPAM, o alta metoda de “phishing

Tine totusi minte: Persoana care iti va spune ca e SPAM Nu are nimic de castigat spunandu-ti tie asta!

Un exemplu concret, a fost un mail pe care l-am primit azi:

[click pe poza pentru versiunea originala]

[click pe poza pentru versiunea originala]

Hai sa facem o lista cu chestiile care au dat de gol acest mesaj ca fiind phishing pentru mine:

  1. Trimiterea lui spre o lista invizibila dedestinatari.
  2. Adresa de la care a pornit mesajul – o adresa pe un domeniu care ofera mail gratuit gen Yahoo sau Gmail.
  3. Modul in care este scris, de la fonturi pana la greselile din text.
  4. Adresa unde am fost trimis sa verific daca sunt castigator.
  5. Fisierul PDF atasat.

De dragul articolului prezent, am salvat fisierul PDF, pe care il puteti downloada de AICI. In totala siguranta, nu e nici un bau bau acolo, nici un virus sau troian, doar niste text.

Bun, hai sa ne uitam la fisierul PDF, si de ce ar putea fi acesta SPAM:

  1. Adresa de mail de contact de Yahoo si a loteriei, si a bancii, in conditiile in care o loterie de stat isi permite un domeniu si are nevoie de o anumita securitate a informatiilor transmise prin acest mediu, si o banca mai mult decat atat. [Exista si un site oficial al bancii care nu seamana cu domeniul ala de Yahoo.]
  2. Greselile din text. [De ce au tradus textul in Romana daca e un text ]
  3. Faptul ca trebuie sa tin secret faptul ca am castigat. [Nu e voie dom’le sa spui! ca poate iti zice cineva cat de prost esti si ca e SPAM]
  4. Lipsa de informatii despre “Loteria Quinigol” de pe internet.
  5. Bucata aia de text subliniat care zice ca beneficiarul trebuie sa suporte toate taxele aferente transmiterii banilor spre el [acolo intra cei 10 – 20 care o sa trimita bani]
  6. Textul cu “Uniunea Europeana” din stanga primei pagini.
  7. Stampila loteriei.
  8. Stampila UE
  9. Poza aia cu mainile care dau noroc si un BlackBerry

Trebuie sa mai continui?!

PS: Daca imi gasiti si mie greseli in text, imi cer scuze, si accept critici


Google Chrome

Great hype around the new Google Browser, Chrome, on the web these days, and I have to admit It got me started on so many levels! After reading the pre-launch comic book teaser I have to say I was extremely impressed by everything they said there, and I was looking forward to it, with my fingers crossed. I am sure the final product, or at least the first release out of beta will be great, bt right now, I’m not so excited anymore, nor disappointed, but all in all it’s lacking some stuff at the moment.

I loved the fact that it imported all my settings/bookmarks/browsing history/account usernames and passwords from Firefox, I love the fact that it’s slick, clean, gives back to the user a huge space to load pages compared to Firefox or Internet explorer, the tabs are great, the way it handles every tab like a standalone application rules!

But, there are some things it can’t do properly yet… like loading asp pages. Yes, I have a mail account on an Exchange server, I use Outlook Web Access for that and it does not work on Chrome as of yet. I uploaded some 50 pictures on Photo Bucket and when I realized they were the wrong pictures I tried to delete them, but that  managed to crash Chrome. Carmen, my laptop, has a fresh Windows XP install, and that might or might not have something to do with stuff not working properly, but if a few hours ago I was ready to click the “Use Chrome as your default browser” right now I’m not so sure I’ll press it just yet…

Great job Google! But I want at least what Firefox can give me…

Later Edit: Apparently the ASP problem is just on my side, I’m trying to figure out what’s happening on my system and why it does not work, but it still crashed *completely* not just the one abusing tab like they said it would.

On a more soothing note, this is a memory consumption report between Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, with the same number of tabs opened, and the same content in the tabs!

Windows blows killing several…

Windows blows killing several win32 only programs in its path…

Din motive mai mult sau mai putin obiective, in ultima vreme, a se citi ultima jumatate de an, am folosit ca si sistem primar de operare pe laptop Windows XP Pro. Motivele obiective, tin de faptul ca am inceput sa il folosesc la birou cand lucram niste ore imposibile, in timpul serviciului nu puteam reinstala linuxul care era cam obosit, si windowsul mi-a oferit destula stabilitate o vreme, cu 2 GB de RAM si customizat la maxim. Cu timpul, m-am trezit ca incet incet windowsul magar mare cum e el de obicei, a inceput sa se miste tot mai fecal, si mai penibil, dar problema era alta… miliarde de setari, parole salvate prin diferite keychainuri, VPN´uri, chestii care s-au adunat si faceau tot mai greoaie trecerea de la wingoz inapoi la linux.

Pana azi…

…cand m-am trezit ca orice browser as folosi, paginile o iau razna, si dureaza o vesnicie pana reusesc sa fac ceva. Nu se poate asa, am nevoie de viteza, am nevoie sa lucrez cu browserul, nu imi ajunge consola si IM´ul. Nu mi se pare normal sa incarc pagina de la Google, da da, aia cu o singura imagine si ceva text in 4 – 5 minute de parca sunt iar pe vremea US Roboticsurilor puse pe linii inchiriate de la romtelecom acum 10 ani.

Am schimbat antivirusul de la avast la kaspersky, implicit scanat crap, si totul era OK, am upgradat toate pogramelele care le tineam rezidente in memorie la ultima versiune, verificat servicii, si apoi am chemat un specialist… Bogdan, care pana la urma, e Windows Admin din ala cu mcse´uri si chestii. Nimic. Problema continua.

Drept urmare, Carmen 2 se muta pe Ubuntu 8.04, pana apuc sa fac un backup la datele din windows si sa reinstalez. Dar, daca versiunea 8.04 nu o sa imi faca probleme cu revenirea din stand-by ca si cea precedenta, o sa revin si eu la Linux ca si sistem de operare primar. O sa reinstalez windowsul pentru chestiute mai delicate cum ar fi un CS (Counter Strike) din cand in cand, dar cam atat.

Go Ubuntu! Tweaking time!

Ah, daca apucati careva sa cititi asta in timp util, si v-ati batut de problema asta, va rog dati un semn… Sunt curios ce mama dracu ar putea sa aiba…

Nici prea prea nici foarte foarte

Daca phishingului de la “Orange” ii lipsea cu desavarsire un corector de text, Alina Floroiu de la Rinf ICT Solutions a folosit unul mult prea exhaustiv…

Nu pot sa inteleg cum apar persoane de genul asta, in pozitii cheie din companii mici/medii/mari. Aici ajung cei cu diploma de licenta luata pe pile, zmEURO sau cumparata din alta parte? Am intalnit HR’isti buni, si HR’isti mai putin buni, dar unele chestii nu ar trebui trecute cu vederea, si in ziua de azi, limba engleza e unul dintre ele. Te poate opri din citit documentatie la un moment dat, te poate opri din a duce un dialog cu un client/furnizor/partener strain, pe scurt, poate sa coste firma mult.

Eu, ca tech support ce sunt in momentul asta, nu as aplica pe un asemenea job, decat daca eventual consecinta ar fi sa dorm intr-o cutie in gara. Dar sa nu va mai tin in suspans [click pentru a mari imaginile] si urmariti traducerile din engleza in romana.
