Putty Connection Manager

I’m recently looking for tabbed Putty connection instances, as it is becoming cumbersome for me to work with a lot of putty screens on my desktop moving from one connection instance to the next. Fortunately I found one and It is called Putty Connection Manager. The market for ssh clients seems to be split from Putty (Free) and Secure CRT (Which is not Free), but for me as long as it does the job well and I can work with it then why go for a commercial version. There are pros and cons of course but for the mean time Putty CM will suffice for my work style.

* Tabs and dockable windows for PuTTY instances.
* Fully compatible with PuTTY configuration (using registry).
* Easily customizable to optimize workspace (fullscreen, minimze to tray, add/remove toolbar, etc…).
* Automatic login feature regardless to protocol restrictions (user keyboard simulation).
* Post-login commands (execute any shell command when logged).
* Connection Manager : Manage a large number of connections with specific configuration (auto-login, specific PuTTY Session, post-command, etc…).
* Quick connect toolbar to quickly launch a PuTTY connection.

Tunnelier SSH2 Port Forwarding Client

If you are using SSH to control your server one of the best software to use is Tunnelier. Tunnelier is a friendly and flexible SSH client for Windows which includes state of the art terminal emulation, graphical as well as command-line SFTP support, an FTP-to-SFTP bridge, powerful tunneling features including dynamic port forwarding through integrated proxy, and also remote administration for our SSH server.

* Port forwarding settings can be saved to and loaded from a profile. One can maintain multiple complex tunneling configurations without having to manually enter parameters before each session.
* Tunnelier minimizes its presence by displaying only a system tray icon when running in the background. If an error is encountered while the program is minimized, the icon reflects that.
* Command-line parameters are supported. Using command-line automation, a port forwarding session can be started from a link in the Startup menu without requiring any user interaction whatsoever.

Windows Server 2003: Not enough server storage is available to process this command.

I recently encountered this error while updating my Windows Server 2003 to service pack 3. My box use to work normally while I’m using service pack 2, after some research the probable cause might be the antivirus software i’m using.

This error is documented in Microsoft website as kb177078.

The resolution from the said error are the following:

To resolve this behavior, increase the IRPStackSize value in the registry:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type regedit, and then click OK.
3. Navigate to the following key:
4. In the right pane, double-click the IRPStackSize value.

NOTE: If the IRPStackSize value does not already exist, use the following procedure to create it:
a. In the Parameters folder of the registry, right-click the right pane.
b. Point to New, and then click DWord Value.
c. Type IRPStackSize.

IMPORTANT: Type “IRPStackSize” exactly as it is displayed because the value name is case-sensitive.
5. Change the Base to decimal.
6. In the Value Data box, type a value that is larger than the value that is listed.

If you created the IRPStackSize value using the procedure described in step 4, the default value is 15. It is recommended that you increase the value by 3. Therefore, if the previous value was 11, type 14, and then click OK.

Tie A Yellow Ribbon (The Story Behind)

Did you ever wonder where the Yellow Ribbon Tradition came from? Most Music Historians trace the Custom to a 19th Century Civil War Song. Reportedly the Custom comes from a Civil War story about a prisoner’s homecoming returning from Andersonville Prison. In 1973 Tony Orlando and Dawn cut their number one song of that year and their all-time classic: “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree.”

Folklore has it that the inspiration for the 1973 song came from a true incident that occurred on a bus bound for Miami, Florida. It seems that one of the passengers had just been released from prison and he was bound for home. He had written his wife and let her know he still loved her and wanted to be with her. He asked her to tie a yellow ribbon around the lone oak tree in the Town Square of White Oak, Georgia, if she still had feelings for him and wanted him to be with her. Everyone in the bus asked the Driver to slow down as they approached, there it was!

The Driver pulled over and phoned the wire services to share the story. It quickly spread throughout the country. Songwriters Irwin Levine and L. Russell Brown wrote the ballad from the news story.

I recently encountered this error two days ago when I try to change my feedburner feeds to enable podcasting feeds. After adding additional wordpress plugins there it goes my feeds suddenly doesn’t seem to work. Code error creeps in our site and it has been a headache for a while. So the trouble shooting begins: First I try to resolve the error from my RSS feeds by going to www.feedvalidator.org the site give me the following solution so I followed the steps faithfully.

* PHP also uses a similar notation: . Note that the final php ?> should be omitted from all PHP code files—modules, includes, etc. The closing delimiter is optional in PHP (but not in XML), and removing it helps prevent unwanted white space at the end of files which can cause problems with your feeds.
* Check your wp-rss2.php and wp-atom.php files for blank lines outside of bracketed sections.
* Check your wp-config.php file for blank lines outside of bracketed sections.
* Check your theme’s functions.php file for blank lines outside of bracketed sections.
* One by one, disable plugins and revalidate until you isolate the one causing the problem.

So the final solution is to disable the plugins we’re using which is quite painful especially if you’re site’s layout are dependent on the plugins that you are using. So you’re solution would be either to ignore your RSS; error or do it painfully and start troubleshooting. Of course the reward would be excellent. See now my feeds are working.

DVD Shrink

DVDShrink is software to backup DVD discs. You can use this software in conjunction with DVD burning software of your choice, to make a backup copy of any DVD video disc.

DVDShrink will also burn your backup DVD, if you have installed the latest version of Nero. You can also download a demo version of Nero. If you already possess alternative burning software and prefer to stick with it, then you can still use DVD Shrink. The output from DVDShrink can be saved as files on your hard drive, which you can then burn with software of your choice.

Most DVDs are designed to prevent you from making copies.The first preventative measure is encryption. Commercial DVD titles are often encrypted, which prevents you from either copying them to your hard drive, or if you manage to do so, being able to play the resulting files. DVDShrink overcomes this problem with built-in decryption algorithms.

30 Years of “SPAM”

Last May 3, 2008 marked the 30th years for spam. No not the popular canned staple food but those unsolicited email in our inboxes. Thirty years ago, the phenomenon that was to grow exponentially and become known as spam was born. But despite three decades to learn our lessons, it seems many people still get fooled in to buying products sent to their email inboxes without request.

According to Yahoo News, on May 3rd 1978, a marketer for DEC, a now defunct U.S.computer company, sent out a message to 400 email addresses. The spam, though it wasn’t known as spam then.

The industry which has grown up around the practice has changed somewhat since the 1970s, when the Internet was still the US government-run Arpanet. Which the sender in 1978 had to input each of those 400 email address individually and by hand, whereas now, the whole operation is handled remotely via bot nets.

The practice became known as spam in the 1980s, after the famous Monty Python sketch where a cafe sells Spam meat with everything. This leads a group of invading Vikings to sing the Spam song, which includes the repeating of the word Spam over and over again.
