Finally, an article about SSL "VPN"s

August 2003 - Tunnel Visions ... How do SSL VPNs match up with their older IPSec cousins?

Good grief. I suspected as much, but this article finally confirms it. SSL "VPN"s, are in fact, not VPNs at all. Instead, they are targeted towards encrypting/protecting applications at a time. Obviously "intranet" sites (including webmail) are ideally suited for this (because it become a glorified proxy), but apparently, they can also give you access to Terminal Services (or Citrix, or whatever) sessions, etc. via an applet.

It just doesn't seem like it's so much a "solution" as a bunch of thrown together whatnot.

Still, for allowing remote users to get to intranet sites, or their shared or user drives on the fileserver, it's not really that bad.

Hmm, sleep only 3 hours a day? || Uberman's sleep schedule

The Uberman sleep schedule is a method of organizing your sleeping time to maximize your REM sleep and minimize your non-REM sleep. The goal of the sleep cycle is that you are actively in REM sleep within a couple of minutes of falling asleep and remain in that state until you awaken. I originally read about the schedule on everything2.

The Register

Al Gore never said he invented the Internet. He "took the initiative in creating the internet". This is corroborated by Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn, who actually invented TCP/IP.

Open Source software load balancer


And, it does sessions.

Pound has the ability to keep track of sessions between a client browser and a back-end server. Unfortunately, HTTP is defined as a stateless protocol, which complicates matters: many schemes have been invented to allow keeping track of sessions, none of which works perfectly. Even worse, sessions are critical in order to allow web-based applications to function correctly - it is vital that once a session is established all subsequent requests from the same browser be directed to the same back-end server.

He seems to rebuild his machine quite often (I'm still going on 3 years on mine, even tho I install/uninstall tons of software). Imaging the drive to another drive, say, would totally be worth the $80 that another drive costs.

So, you basically run this program, and it attaches to your VNC server like any other client. But it's recording the screen and mouse to an swf file.

Perhaps this software can be adapted to my purposes.


pop2blog was created specifically out of a desire to take the jpeg images which the Danger Hiptop (aka T-Mobile Sidekick) is able to capture and email and post them as entries in a MovableType weblog. It can be seen in use on this site's main blog page. Because it makes use of MovableType's XML-RPC, it should be easy to adapt this script to work with any weblog backend that uses the Blogger API.
