From: Mike Robinson ------------------------------------------------------ "Most" programming languages ... Perl, Python, PHP, Ruby, Java.

Prolog, R. Never a shortage in = this world of half-finished stuff that's been left high and dry. Can programming-languages be a hobby? I think so. I'm always poking = around sites learning about new ones. I've even written a few. It's = really interesting to me, to see how programming languages work and to = see them as a power-tool for a particular class of problem. There's a = really challenging Terracache in this area (I think it's still alive) = which at its various puzzle stages included both a very large Sudoku = puzzle and a logic-problem ("The man with the blue tie is not standing = up") with twenty-odd stages. GNU Prolog not only solved both problems = but, geek that I am, showed that one of the clues in the logic problem = was not required to solve the problem.

From: Christopher Rimondi ------------------------------------------------------ A story broke a couple of weeks ago about ISP's voluntarily participating in a copyright alert system. http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/technology/262315-internet-providers-set-to-crack-down-on-illegal-file-sharing Essentially, intellectual property holders will flag an IP address for peer-to-peer sharing and let the ISP know. The ISP will then send alerts to suspected users letting them know they have been flagged. They might also put them in a "walled-garden" where they will force fed "educational material" that they must read before leaving. Two questions for anyone who might know. 1. What is the nature of the alerts? HTTP redirects, DNS redirects, Java script inserted into legitimate pages? I couldn't seem to find anything on this. 2. Why would ISPs voluntarily participate in a program like this? I have a few guesses such as it will save them from future litigation or the content owners are paying them directly. But, does anyone have evidence on why they are doing this? I have heard this referred to as "SOPA-lite". Thanks, Chris -- Chris Rimondi | http://twitter.com/crimondi
From: "Robert A. Kelly III" ------------------------------------------------------ The Convergys corporate intranet is supposed to be available over the internet at my.convergys.com, but it doesn't appear to work on any browser on Linux. Opera and Chrome work only when running on Windows and Firefox never works even when it is running on Windows. When it works, the site prompts for a username and password, but with any browser on Linux or Firefox on Windows it simply gives: HTTP Status 401 - type Status report message description This request requires HTTP authentication (). Sun-Java-System/Application-Server without prompting for a username or password. Can anyone tell why this is happening or if there is a way to login from a Linux machine?

From: Nick Smith ------------------------------------------------------ Im trying to get graylog2 setup to accept logs from rsyslog I keep getting this in the log: FATAL: org.graylog2.Main - Could not start syslog server core thread. Do you have permissions to listen on port 514? Ive googled around and I have apparmour and the firewall disabled on ubuntu 12.04 The graylog user i setup has sudo access, which i guess is needed to bind to a port. rsyslogs.conf: # provides UDP syslog reception $ModLoad imudp $UDPServerRun 514 # provides TCP syslog reception $ModLoad imtcp $InputTCPServerRun 12201 graylog2.conf # On which port (UDP) should we listen for Syslog messages?
