It's been a while since a new release of the Rad SFTP applet was made. Yesterday we put that right by making version 2.02 available for download.There isn't a large difference between the old and the new version - it's only a minor bug fix.

Whatever said and done, Dialog 3g (or rather 3.5g) is much faster than SLT ADSL even when the 3.5 connection is limited by the bottleneck at the bluetooth connection between the mobile and the computer. ...

One more look at SPF.

Our mail servers were being spammed and joe jobbed to death and I decided to apply the qmail SPF patch.

In the middle of the night there was a power failure and the Asterisk server I had configured was shut down. When it restarted the Nokia E51 wouldn't connect to it (it's set to automatic connect).

May 6, 2008, 7:04 p.m. security

When it comes to java code signing it seems we have to choose between the devil and the deep blue sea (Thawte and Verisign). Unfortunately they are two sides of the same coin.

Nokia Crashes Fedora

The last time my desktop running Fedora Core 6 crashed was when I plugged in my old Nokia 6151 using the DKU 2 cable. That phone is now dead. I wondered what might happen if I plugged in my new E51.The E51 does not come with a DKU cable. It has a mini USB cable. The kind that you normally see on Dig ...

Asterisk and Nokia E51

I hadn't previously configured it with a hard phone or on linux.Setting up the hardphone, the Nokia E51 was reall ...

Good Reciept To

May 1, 2008, 12:15 a.m. anti spam , qmail

Having managed to reduce the load on the qmail server (if not the number of spams in the mailboxes) by using several patches yesterday, it was time to see whether there is room for more improvement.My earlier adventure included messing with doublebouncetrim, SPF and tarpitting patches. These were ac ...
