Down Time – WHT Hacked and EveryDNS is Offline

Tags: , Date/Time: March 24, 2009 @ 12:55 am, by LowEndAdmin

Not a good start of the week. First of all, WebHostingTalk was hacked with user data compromised.

A while a go I looked at Bash replacements for interactive shells. Unfortunately for me, I am just getting too used to having Bash on the command line and can’t get myself used to other shells. However, interactive shell is one thing, and scripting shell is another. If your scripts are compatible with the original […]
