    Good way to log failed password attempts with Bitvise SSH Server?

    So, I've had a ton of login attempts tonight: IP resolves to Moscow. Probably a botnet, but I've had very few attempts since changing the port from standard. I'd like to log the attempts used by such bots or skiddies. My system is set up to only accept certificates, generated and transported...

    Forum on windows phone 7

    When browsing this forum on my new phone, I noticed that the replies to a topic were tiny, but anything inside a quote box is huge. Is there any plan to look at this platform for visual compatibility? It would be nice, since my laptop is currently in for rma work

    Decided to get back in

    Been a long time, but I added one box for folding. With winter coming I figured I could save on heating and use my computer by giving [H] more D :). I'm only two cores and a GPU, but hey, every bit counts, right? Maybe tomorrow I'll check IT's policy regarding running such apps on my extra...

    C# - Getting free drive letters

    I can't believe there's nothing simple to do this, or I'm completely missing it... How can I get a list of unused drive letters, similar to the way Disk Management does when you choose "change drive letter or path"? Is there a way to do this easily in C#? Or will I have to roll some sort of...

    AD GPO Administrative Templates Empty

    I'm trying to set up a GPO for the domain to assign all computers within a specific OU to use the local WSUS server. I run GPMC, right click on the OU I want the policy on, then choose "create and link a Group Policy Object here". I name it, and then edit it. When I go to edit it, though...

    C++ parsing float from string weird "reverse rounding" error

    I thought this method was working, and the only reason I caught this error was because I was debugging another method and stepped through it. float ParseFile::parseFloat(string line) { float val = 0.0; cout << line << endl; size_t start = line.find_first_of("0123456789."); size_t...

    Converting from UBB to vBulletin - PMs, SQL, ruby, PHP, and me... and an SQL question

    The vBulletin importer script did not properly handle or import the PMs from our UBB Classic 6.5 board. Finding no definitive answers online, I decided to "roll my own" solution in Ruby, giving me something to figure out in a language I haven't used much (beyond a bit of rails). Being new...

    Compact flash boot speed versus laptop hard disk - should the CF be faster?

    First, some background: I'm developing an XP embedded image, using the enhanced write filter to minimize writes to the system disk. Windows prefetching, NTFS last access timestamps, system restore, et cetera, are all turned off per the Microsoft EWF Performance recommendations. The CF card...

    Explorer.exe behavior change in Win2k upon CD Eject

    I've been googling and searching for this problem for the last couple days to no avail. For this issue, we have two systems in the field, one using Windows 2000 SP3, the other using Windows 2000 SP4. Due to the nature of these machines, once the base configuration is locked nothing is changed...

    Logitech MX518 autoscroll over animation causes reverse

    A couple weeks ago I purchased an MX518 to replace my double clicking Explorer 3.0a. I absolutely love the mouse, but any time I autoscroll on a page (the [H] frontpage is a good example) and the mouse cursor goes over an animation (flash, animated gif), the page begins to scroll upwards. If I'm...

    ANSI C - multiple instances of a stack during recursion

    Please bear with me, this might get ugly... I wrote together a quick stack class (please ignore that it has no sanity checks) #include "stack.h" #define MAXSIZE 50 struct stack { char **data; int TOS; }; struct stack *newStack() { stack s = (struct stack *)...

    How long have the Antec TruePower 430s been around?

    Just over a year ago (day before christmas eve, 2003) I purchased a TruePower 430 at Worst Buy (my previous power supply bit the dust). The 12V rail has always run slightly low on that, but it was no problem on my last system (athlon 1800+ on MSI KT3 Ultra blah blah blah). However, upon...

    Angry about Steam and not getting what you paid for?

    Want to make a real difference? Fill out a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission You paid for a piece of software. Can you play it? You own it, but it's still encrypted because of steam? I'm quite sure the FTC will not look happily upon a sudden influx of complaints because we paid for...

    Netgear WG311v2 stupidity and issues

    first of all: Notice that channel 1 AP has over twice the signal of channel 11. Notice the netgear drivers decided to connect to channel 11 instead. Note that no matter how many times I tell it to connect to channel 1, it only stays on 1 for a few seconds before going back to 11. Any...
