Sooner is better….

Since always, I believe that the best way of educating people to use and think opensource, this should happen early at school. M$ knows that and since long time now they provide computers for schools, adult users of tomorrow are the children of today. M$ now starts even earlier, look at this ! Bah... I've already a bunch of books with penguins for my daughter ;-)

New blog

Hello as you can see, I'm moving my old websites, I'm "consolidating" my old plain html and my blog in dotclear to drupal. But I don't have a lot of time, the migration would take some time...

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 ;)
