Clamav rocks

Being a defender of clamav since the beginning, I am very glad to see that this free antivirus defies most commercial antivirus and beat the majority of them !

According to this study, one can thus see that clamav detected the more viruses than many others: the study's result

I always advice Windows users to use the windows version of that engine on their very vulnerable "operating system" : clamwin

I use clamav in the majority of mailrelays and fileservers I install.

Thus go! the clamav team continue like that!

This news was also reported on DLFP.

To Digg or not to digg… ?

That is the question !

Since M$ replaces Google has advertisement exclusive provider for Digg, I wonder if I will keep "digging" some articles there...

But if I start like that, it means that I'm becoming an OpenSource extremist.... So ok, I give up my first idea and I still will "digg"... but of course no without having learned to my adds and banner blocker :-)

I just hope that the really interesting articles about OpenSource won't disappear.

Another dream comes true

Since long time I was wishing to have a full ssh access through the Web. I did some research long time ago and sodg pointed me to java applet (shell-in-a-box) but I didn't really like it but it was better than nothing.

Finally I took some time (5mins) to search for a new solution and I found what makes me so happy : ajaxterm !!

Ajaxterm is a python script running on a remote server where you can configure optionally an apache (or using a reverse proxy) to access it. I definitely advise to use an SSL layer and to use a web authentication. If you run ajaxterm from root the login command will be started but you can always specify another one.

As you can see I'll be able to follow my irc chats everywhere ;)

This is the future !

and the future is Open Source !!

Today I installed eyeOS for the first time, just because I was curious about this project and my first impression (that's still there now) is : THIS IS AMAZING and this is the future !

Of course some improvements should be done on the applications parts, writing some more in fact like an ssh client (I know I'm a geek), a jabber client, an irc client... but the current work is already very nice !

And all this into a tgz of 746K !

There is already a nice community around this project it seems : http://www.eyeos.org/community

I hope to find some time to test writing some applications for this web based os.

SambaXP Episode 3

This morning we saw very cool stuff like printer migrations and still more management (like shares) from the Windows Remote Management Tools ! We also pointed the M$-DFS.

The new port feature added in 3.0.23 seems nice too. And we saw that the printers can be "managed" by regedit.

Once again it's a lot of M$ tools but the integration is very impressive... it's time for VT ;-)
