opensuse – How to run my script after SuSE finished booting up? – Unix & Linux Stack Exchange

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/21

For future research: opensuse – How to run my script after SuSE finished booting up? – Unix & Linux Stack Exchange

Reason? Want to show the output of this as the last boot sequence line:

hostname
ip route
echo
ip address | grep -w 'UP\|flags\|inet\|inet6'
echo more detailed info through "ip address" and "ip route"
cat /etc/resolv.conf | grep nameserver

when apple.com != apple.com – Phishing with Unicode Domains – Xudong Zheng

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/21

Vulnerability in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera makes users susceptible to phishing with Unicode domains.

Basically these are not the same sites:

Depending on the font used, you might notice it if you look very careful.

Keywords: Unicode codepoints, visual similarity, codepoint to character mapping in fonts, Punycode

Tested the CastBuddy extension from the Chrome Web Store: nice, but high CPU usage even when no videos

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/21

CastBuddy – Chrome Web Store:

This extension finds videos on the web sites you are browsing and allows you to play them on your Chromecast device.

Works nice if you need it, but uses a lot of CPU (on my Retina MacBook with latest chrome: about 75% of one CPU core) so it drains battery fast.

You can view this high CPU usage in the Chrome Task Manager (which used to be available through chrome://tasks, but this is one of the use full Find Hidden Features On Chrome’s Internal Chrome:// Pages features they removed). Fire up the Chrome Task Manager through the Window menu.

Verdict

Enable only when you need it. Disable after use in chrome://extensions

via: CastBuddy – Chrome Web Store:

When it finds Chromecast comptible videos ( .webm, .mp4, .mkv etc), count of videos is shown over extension’s menubar icon, which you can click to Select a video and extension will send it to your Chromecast device. Once a casting session is established, you can control video playback from Extension’s popup page.

Warning: C64 geek pr0n! A Mind Is Born

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/20

Geek pr0n on the C64:

Making a demo in just 256 bytes would be a formidable challenge regardless of platform. A Mind Is Born is my attempt to do it on the Commodore 64. In the absence of an actual 256-byte compo, it was submitted to the Oldskool 4K Intro compo at [WayBackRevision 2017, where it ended up on 1st place.

use vmrun – via How do I find the IP address of a virtual machine using VMware Fusion? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/20

Note this works only when the VMs have VMware Tools installed (more on that below):

VMWare provides, not surprisingly, a built in tool for this, vmrun. It’s under /Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun although it has moved around in other Fusion releases a bit.

🍺 vmrun list Total running VMs: 1 .docker/machine/machines/myvm.vmx
🍺 vmrun getGuestIPAddress ~/.docker/machine/machines/myvm.vmx 172.16.213.128

via: How do I find the IP address of a virtual machine using VMware Fusion? – Super User [WayBack]

vmrun [WayBack] is barely documented and most of is in PDF of which this is the most recent I could find: www.vmware.com/pdf/vix180_vmrun_command.pdf [WayBack]

Based on the above path, I added this to my ~/.bash_profile file:

alias vmrun='/Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun'
alias vmrun-list-running-VMs='vmrun list | grep vmx'
vmrun-list-ipv4-of-running-VMs()
{
  vmrun-list-running-VMs | while read line ; do echo $line && vmrun getGuestIPAddress $line; done
}

Now I can do this:

$ vmrun-list-ipv4-of-running-VMs
/Users/jeroenp/VM/W81Entx64DelphiRegression.vmwarevm/W81Entx64.vmx
172.16.172.135

/Users/jeroenp/VM/W81Entx64DelphiRegression.vmwarevm/W81Entx64.vmx
172.16.172.142

These are the messages I observed:

Error: The VMware Tools are not running in the virtual machine: /Users/jeroenp/VM/diaspore-opensuse-Tumbleweed-x64.vmwarevm/diaspore-opensuse-Tumbleweed-x64.vmx

The first one means a machine is running but has no VMware Tools installed. For an OpenSuSE machine you can install it with zypper install open-vm-tools, for other Linux systems read VMware Tools auf Ubuntu, Mint, CentOS oder openSUSE installieren | ITrig [WayBack]

Some more examples of vmrun for VMware Fusion are at Control VMware Fusion from the Command Line | James Reuben Knowles [WayBack]
