The “classic” editors like Emacs and VIM may seem a far surpased thing when
nowadays IDEs like NetBeans or Eclipse can detect errors on the code without
having to wait to manually compile it to find them (even though this happens
mostly with Java, for some strange reason...), nevertheless the modularity
of these editors allows to do this fairly simply.
Emacs includes by defaun a “minor-mode”
named flymake which allows to do this
but some configurations may be needed depending on the language, the Emacs wiki
describes how to do i
for a number of languages.
But, what if the language is not supported, like Flex or assembler? The solution …continue.
Sometimes may be useful to detect a text language, *NIX systems usually have a
directory containing the mostly used words of various languages, simply
comparing the numbers yielded from checking which words of the text appear
there seem to give a significative number regarding which language the text
is written in.
Some time ago I wrote a script to colorize the tcpdump output
and convert that character mess into something easier to read …continue.
Minted provides syntax highligh for LaTeX,
I had to install it a couple times, so I better keep the notes of how to do it:
I had the intention to add some glow with gaussian blur or some of the sort, but it was stopped some time and the rest works ok.

It's something like this: …continue.
The DNS protocol has some time,
the RFC which define it, 1034 (concepts and facilities)
and 1035 (implementation and specification)
are from 1987 and like in all the protocols of that time, security in the
comunication wasn't a priority, anyone sniffing the network can see which
domains visit everyone, let alone the providers of the DNS service, but it
has little solution in the short run, Internet depends on this name sistem
and there isn't another better with the required infrastructure, right?
Well, it seems that the Tor SOCKS proxy interface
offers a non standard option (point 2)
which allows to use this network to resolve names, this functionality can …continue.
Based on the GtkSourceView one, just add it to the configuration and call (cobalt-theme).
Ever wondered how a vulnerability scan is seen from the server?
Well, not very quiet :P
In real time, if every ball represents a petition, the ones who bounce are the one answered succesfully and the other ones do not:

Some weeks ago I knew about Twisted, a asynchronous networking library... something
like to node.js for python.
Among a lot of protocols (including SSH, client
it suports, of course, HTTP,
which allows us to get a dinamic web server running without configuring any apache, nginx or something like that, just doing
pip install twisted
And what web application can be built fast on a web server?
a Bittorrent tracker!
After using the perl WebService::Dropbox library for some time to manage (because of external factors)
this service without having to resort to privative software, I guess someone may find it usefull, so here it is:
