Email Notification Blues

Greymatter sends an email notification when someone posts a comment to my site. This new server I'm using is running Postfix rather than the older less secure Sendmail. I haven't been able to get that feature working yet, but now I know why. Postfix provides a Sendmail compliant stub program but you need the proper permissions to run it. Since the web server is running with a minimum of permissions it's not able to utilize that email feature. I'll figure it out, just maybe not today. Always a trade-off between security and comfort. Hack this ma-facko.


Ground Zero

Tonight, in the parking lot of my local supermarket, a woman called to me from her SUV: "hey! you speak english?". I approached her window expecting to provide directions. As I stepped closer I noticed a look of desperation, and realized that she has something else in mind. She said: "I don't want your money, I'm trying to feed my kids, if I could get you to have sex with me..." Surprised, I glance at the faces of the three children inside before quickly walking away.


Designer Email To The Rescue

Used a tool called Reptile to create all the new backgrounds. It's terrific --these guys make good software. Unfortunately it only runs on Windows so I installed it on my DJ box. The installer makes you go through some registration key request nonsense (I guess nothing's free eh?) You have to enter your email and then the installer accesses their server which emails a key to the address you provide. Sounds like a recipe for spam to me. I managed to get the key without compromising my email address by creating another email address on the fly. Since I've got my own mail server (expressly for this purpose...) I created an email account like so: sausage.com@mydomain.com that forwards to my real email address. If I get spam addressed to that email address I will know that I got screwed (by a sausage?) and can shut off the account. Kind of a first line of defense. Life can be so complicated...


Web Server Re-install

Just finished switching the Linux distribution that my web server runs on from Mandrake to Trustix. Mandrake is a good starter kit/intro to Linux but it's more of a desktop distro. Just got done bringing my site back up. No GUI on the server now, everything is command line only. Had to edit the path information in a bunch of cgi files using VI. I feel rugged, like I just roped a cow or something...
