A short while ago, I wrote about Linux: getting the correct license file for AntiVir.
Too bad that I recently read about the Discontinuation of Antivirus solutions for Linux systems on June 30th 2016.
This means the hbedv.key cannot be downloaded any more.

I’ve succesfully woken up these machines:
- HP XW6600 running ESXi 5.1
- ThinkPad W701U running Windows 7
I still need to try to wake up a Mac Mini Server running OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
MacBook Air on 10.7 (Lion) and Retina on 10.8 (Mountain Lion) won’t work as they are WiFi only, and WOL does not work over WiFi.
On 10.7 and up it might not work on a Mac Mini Server either, as Apple Introduced Dark Wake.
I used these tools to send WOL packets: Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks to Using inotify-wait to check filesystem events I got pointed to How to use inotify-tools to trigger scripts on filesystem events which is now on my research list.
Note that Kristian later on commented this:
The solution shown in the article has race conditions and should not be used.
It is based on
inotifywait $options && run-backup
and that means that while the backup runs, the directory in question is unmonitored. When the backup finishes, new changes may have been accumulating during backup run, but without being picked up by the backup.
A proper solution would do something like
inotifywait -m $options | while read line
The important thing is that “inotifywait -m” does not terminate and hence no changes will be lost. It is wrong to run the backup once in full for each change, though.

Any web developer should know how to capture and trace HTTP traffic.
I’ve written about Fiddler before, but that’s a Windows specific tool.
Time to have a small list of posts and links to tools that work on various platforms.
I’ve left out Java based tools as there have been too many security issues with Java over the last couple of years.
