How To Set Up A USB-Over-IP Server And Client With OpenSUSE 11.2

Filed under
SUSE
HowTos

This tutorial shows how to set up a USB-over-IP server with OpenSUSE 11.2 as well as a USB-over-IP client (also running OpenSUSE 11.2). The USB/IP Project aims to develop a general USB device sharing system over IP network. To share USB devices between computers with their full functionality, USB/IP encapsulates "USB I/O messages" into TCP/IP payloads and transmits them between computers. USB-over-IP can be useful for virtual machines, for example, that don't have access to the host system's hardware - USB-over-IP allows virtual machines to use remote USB devices.

How big are your icons?

Filed under
Web
Humor

dedoimedo.com: What I want to talk to you about are icons linking to various social networks and sharing services, like Digg, Stumbleupon, Twitter, Facebook, and others. Sometimes, you come across sites where the icons are simple huge. Not just big. Humongous. My personal experience shows that quality of website articles is inversely proportional to the area of the icons multiplied by their number.

Review: Mod-Security 2.5 by Magnus Mischel

Filed under
Reviews

linuxsecurity.com: One of my favorite things about mod_security is that (amongst other things), it provides logging where none was provided. In fact, there is a whole chapter dedicated to it (chapter 4 on audit logging). And thus the first chapter I went to (just for fun). So I started flipping back and forth between chapters 2 (writing rules) and 4 (audit logging) to create my ruleset.
