I had a productive day. I finished off the working face of the thing. The other guy finished off the working skeleton. We stitched that thing together and the monster started walking. Now we just need to polish it a wee but and start working on the guts. Our beast is alive :D

First time in a while a plan has actually paid off and two separate phases of development merged seamlessly and were checked into the trunk. It made me happy!

Nah a scientific toolset written in python. Tis the day job. My own projects are still pretty much simple web apps because I don't get time for anything else. I haven't touched flash in years.

But its good when you steam right through something you thought would take longer. Not only dose that take the pressure off when it comes to deadlines and timelines etc but we also have something to show for it! And we've got something re-useable.

Good day all round to be honest!

I finished college, bought a new laptop and then stubbed my toe while making a barbecue.
Overall a productive month XD

Just got back from a summer DCI (if anyone knows what that is), which means no programming for an entire summer. I think I have forgotten how to live now. No programming = no life.

Anyway, anyone know of a good host? My website expired while I was gone

Have you used them before? Like all of us I'm just trying to make sure they're reliable before getting my feet wet again.

The last shared hosting service I used was Apis Networks and they were excellent.
My only complaint was that the path to your root directory is very long. Not a huge deal though.

I've used their other services and it was fine. Furthermore, currently I am working on a ste for this spa company, and I decided I'll host it there.

I decided I'll go with the deluxe edition, which costs 6.75$/month, whereas diki's choice Apis don't even have a unlimited traffic plan (or at least I can't see it)

unlimited traffic is a complete waste of time even thinking about. If you ever come close to even using 100GB of bandwidth you're going to start reaching the limits of a shared hosting environments resources. It's much better to have hard limits because then at least you know what you can and can't do and you can easily understand if you're in a position where you may need to upgrade.

personally I think shared hosting is fine for a small blog or static website, but once you're getting into the realms of e-commerce, web applications and the like, it's not worth the risk and restrictions to save a few $. You can get excellent quality virtual and dedicated hosting very cheap now, the only issue is sys admin work and that's very easy. If you have a few hours to dedicate a month to your hosting I'd highly recommended skipping dealing with the bs associated with shared hosting and if you don't have a few hours a month then you must be making really good money and if that's the case you can hire someone to do it for you.

http://linode.com are my favourite, I have uh... 11 VMs with them, I think, 10 or 11. Linode are so great they'll open a ticket with me about downtime before I even notice a server is down. Also I use s3 for cdn, hosting images on a web server is dumb, although s3 is pretty pricey. I think I spend about $500 on hosting in an average month.

July s3 figures:

$0.125 per GB - first 1 TB / month of storage used 2.896 GB-Mo 0.36
$0.01 per 1,000 PUT, COPY, POST, or LIST requests 30,960 Requests 0.31
$0.01 per 10,000 GET and all other requests 19,751,069 Requests 19.75

$0.000 per GB - data transfer in per month 3.177 GB 0.00
$0.000 per GB - first 1 GB of data transferred out per month 1.000 GB 0.00
$0.120 per GB - up to 10 TB / month data transfer out 798.220 GB 95.79

actually newgrounds relevant linode experience:

they have a pretty great product called "Nodebalancers" (it's basically just a loadbalancer backed by their large server farm), anyway for the Newgrounds downtime page I put together the Facebook counter and it was pushing over 600 requests a second to my servers, I had 3 small web servers (512mb ram each, running nginx) and the Nodebalance up front and it handled ~600 requests a second with ease, didn't have a single problem. This all cost me about $10 (Linode bill you monthly but per day; if you pay up front for one month and then cancel they refund the remaining days), something that would have cost hundreds a few years back.

(I can't find a screenshot of the peak, but here's the second day it was running: http://i.imgur.com/yjAi9.png)

There's no such thing as unlimited bandwidth/disk space; that's impossible.
And most companies that offer that will put limits on your account (such as your transfer rate) if you use up too much bandwidth and/or disk space.

Did you know that R3 came out? You probably already have the update, it's just an "apt-get dist-upgrade".
It's funny, I actually learned linux on BT5. It's brutally unforgiving, so I learned very quickly.

Nowadays I consider myself a good enough linux user to be able to work my way around the OS via command line or the GUI equally as efficiently.
I have yet to compile a program (make, make-install) - haven't had the need to yet.
I have yet to make a full program with a GTK interface and an installer. If I do make an installer, i'll just tarball the damn thing.
I also have yet to actually use all of BT's tools. Most are preference, anyway.

I use BT to pentest my website and any servers I own (once a month or so. I wish I could do more, but I actually have a life)
Usually i'll just throw armitage at it, but every now and then i'll do something that actually has a chance of working.

Occasionally i'll get a pentest request. I'm actually very proficient at getting into routers and grabbing passwords and other goodies from home/office computers.

What do you use it for?


Programming stuffs (tutorials and extras)
PM me (instead of MintPaw) if you're confuzzled.
thank Skaren for the sig :P
