  • Should I use the same AddThis tag on multiple sites?

    - by ripper234
    I have an AddThis for one site: <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ripper234"> </script> Now I logged into AddThis and wanted to get my tag again, I saw it changed: <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ripper234"> </script> Should I use the same tag I got before, or the new tag? What's the difference? Is 250/300 the internal version number?

  • mod_usertrack with X-Forwarded-For (proxy) IPs, apache 2.2

    - by ripper234
    I'm using apache 2.2 with mod_usertrack, behind a reverse proxy (load balancer). Now, the proxy disguises the client's real IP addresses (keeps them in the X-Forwarded-For header), and forwards the request along. mod_usertrack uses the clients' IP (along with some noise) to generate a GUID for each client. However, because of the proxy, it only sees a single IP and the generated GUIDs for each client are very similar (even with some possible collisions). I would like to upgrade apache to version 2.4, but it seems to be somewhat of a project. I did manage to compile it using this post and a few others, only to discover the folder structure does not resemble the one I had before (default ubuntu). I'm weary of tweaking it myself ... and I will be making my life miserable if I want to upgrade the server later on. So ... what are my options? Is there a good unofficial repository that packages apache 2.4 for Oneiric? (please provide a short 'how to', I'm not great in installing packages) Is there an alternative route to solve this? (Upgrading just the user_track module? Another module that works with apache 2.2?)

  • Interview question: How would you implement Google Search?

    - by ripper234
    Supposed you were asked in an interview "How would you implement Google Search?" How would you answer such a question? There might be resources out there that explain how some pieces in Google are implemented (BigTable, MapReduce, PageRank, ...), but that doesn't exactly fit in an interview. What overall architecture would you use, and how would you explain this in a 15-30 minute time span? I would start with explaining how to build a search engine that handles ~ 100k documents, then expand this via sharding to around 50M docs, then perhaps another architectural/technical leap. This is the 20,000 feet view. What I'd like is the details - how you would actually answer that in an interview. Which data structures would you use. What services/machines is your architecture composed of. What would a typical query latency be? What about failover / split brain issues? Etc...

  • Switch from back-end to front-end programming: I'm out of my comfort zone, should I switch back?

    - by ripper234
    I've been a backend developer for a long time, and I really swim in that field. C++/C#/Java, databases, NoSql, caching - I feel very much at ease around these platforms/concepts. In the past few years, I started to taste end-to-end web programming, and recently I decided to take a job offer in a front end team developing a large, complex product. I wanted to break out of my comfort zone and become more of an "all around developer". Problem is, I'm getting more and more convinced I don't like it. Things I like about backend programming, and missing in frontend stuff: More interesting problems - When I compare designing a server that handle massive data, to adding another form to a page or changing the validation logic, I find the former a lot more interesting. Refactoring refactoring refactoring - I am addicted to Visual Studio with Resharper, or IntelliJ. I feel very comfortable writing code as it goes without investing too much thought, because I know that with a few clicks I can refactor it into beautiful code. To my knowledge, this doesn't exist at all in javascript. Intellisense and navigation - I hate looking at a bunch of JS code without instantly being able to know what it does. In VS/IntelliJ I can summon the documentation, navigate to the code, climb up inheritance hiererchies ... life is sweet. Auto-completion - Just hit Ctrl-Space on an object to see what you can do with it. Easier to test - With almost any backend feature, I can use TDD to capture the requirements, see a bunch of failing tests, then implement, knowing that if the tests pass I did my job well. With frontend, while tests can help a bit, I find that most of the testing is still manual - fire up that browser and verify the site didn't break. I miss that feeling of "A green CI means everything is well with the world." Now, I've only seriously practiced frontend development for about two months now, so this might seem premature ... but I'm getting a nagging feeling that I should abandon this quest and return to my comfort zone, because, well, it's so comfy and fun. Another point worth mentioning in this context is that while I am learning some frontend tools, a lot of what I'm learning is our company's specific infrastructure, which I'm not sure will be very useful later on in my career. Any suggestions or tips? Do you think I should give frontend programming "a proper chance" of at least six to twelve months before calling it quits? Could all my pains be growing pains, and will they magically disappear as I get more experienced? Or is gaining this perspective is valuable enough, even if plan to do more "backend stuff" later on, that it's worth grinding my teeth and continuing with my learning?

  • Any advantage to the script version of Google Adwords' conversion tracking code?

    - by ripper234
    Google Adword has an HTML snippet to track conversions: <script type="text/javascript"> /* <![CDATA[ */ var google_conversion_id = 12345; var google_conversion_language = "en"; var google_conversion_format = "3"; var google_conversion_color = "ffffff"; var google_conversion_label = "someopaqueid"; var google_conversion_value = 0; /* ]]> */ </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion.js"> </script> <noscript> <div style="display:inline;"> <img height="1" width="1" style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion/12345/?label=opaque&amp;guid=ON&amp;script=0"/> </div> </noscript> It is composed of two parts: For clients supporting javascript, an inline script that sets variables, plus loading a reporting script. For other clients, an image tag. As far as I can see, the image tag has some advantages: It works on all browsers. It is asynchronous. It's shorter to have only this version, compared to both this and the js version. Any reason not to drop the <noscript> tag and just use the image conversion snippet directly?

  • Clean up infected computer from viruses

    - by ripper234
    I have a computer which had AVG Free installed from day one. After several months of operation, it starts detecting viruses and trojans all the time. Besides running a full scan, what should I do to clean the computer? Should I install another anti-virus or anti-malware tool (can it help?), or once viruses infect a system the only real solution is a clean format? (Lately I've heard of viruses that burn themselves in the BIOS, so a clean format might not always work ... how common is this technique? Should I burn a fresh BIOS as well?)

  • Execute a remote command on a Mac from Windows

    - by ripper234
    What's the easiest way to execute a single command on a Mac from a remote Windows machine, via batch? I'd like minimal pre-configuration (like SSH credentials) to exist on either machines, as I need to apply this on several Win/Mac pairs. The macs all have a common user/password (in fact, they are on the same domain), and I want to automate this as painlessly as possible.

  • Alt-Shift won't switch language in Microsoft Word

    - by ripper234
    I have Windows 7 RTM, Office 2007 SP1, and a computer with English and Hebrew languages installed. In most programs (e.g. notepad), left ALT-SHIFT switches from Hebrew to English and vice versa. In word, it also usually works, but sometimes pressing left ALT-SHIFT just won't do anything. Is this a bug in Windows ? Word?

  • No mysql password under linux?

    - by ripper234
    I was told that mysql user, similar to root user, by default "has no password". Not an empty password, but rather "no password". I wasn't aware this situation was possible - I thought every user on a linux had to have a password. Am I wrong? Can you point me to a link that explain this?

    - by ripper234
    In 'Messages' (inbox) view in Outlook 2007, there is a list of all messages (one liners) with several field. The rightmost field is the 'Flag Status' field. I'm trying to move this icon to the left. All other columns are movable (via several methods), but this status icon is not. How can I move it to the left of the headers line?

  • A compression program that handles files with unusual extensions

    - by ripper234
    WAR files are simply ZIP files with a renamed extension. I'd like to configure a compression program to handle these (on double-clicking the file), but jZip doesn't recognize them unless I rename them to .ZIP. I have setup Windows file associations, but jZip just wants to 'add them to archive' instead of opening them. Which compression program would you recommend?

  • Measuring internet performance

    - by ripper234
    Is there a program that measures the performance (bandwidth, latency) of my internet connection over time? I'm interested in trends, statistics, etc... I suspect that I'm not getting all that I'm paying for from my ISP.

  • How can I unlock a folder locked by ‘System’ process on Windows Server 2008?

    - by ripper234
    I'm on Windows Server 2008 64-bit. LockHunter identifies that a folder is locked by the "System" process. I'm not sure why this happens, but my bigger concern is how to unlock it. I'm looking for a solution that can be run from the command line. LockHunter itself is unable to unlock it. Also, Sysinternals' Process Explorer doesn't find the locked folder's handle. Rebooting is not an option either.

  • Why does mod_security require an ACCEPT HTTP header field?

    - by ripper234
    After some debugging, I found that the core ruleset of mod_security blocks requests that don't have the (optional!) ACCEPT header field. This is what I find in the logs: ModSecurity: Warning. Match of "rx ^OPTIONS$" against "REQUEST_METHOD" required. [file "/etc/apache2/conf.d/modsecurity/modsecurity_crs_21_protocol_anomalies.conf"] [line "41"] [id "960015"] [msg "Request Missing an Accept Header"] [severity "CRITICAL"] [tag "PROTOCOL_VIOLATION/MISSING_HEADER"] [hostname "example.com"] [uri "/"] [unique_id "[email protected]"] ModSecurity: Access denied with code 400 (phase 2). Match of "rx ^OPTIONS$" against "REQUEST_METHOD" required. [file "/etc/apache2/conf.d/modsecurity/optional_rules/modsecurity_crs_21_protocol_anomalies.conf"] [line "41"] [id "960015"] [msg "Request Missing an Accept Header"] [severity "CRITICAL"] [tag "PROTOCOL_VIOLATION/MISSING_HEADER"] [hostname "example.com"] [uri "/"] [unique_id "[email protected]"] Why is this header required? I understand that "most" clients send these, but why is their absence considered a security threat?

  • How to exclude a specific URL from basic authentication in Apache?

    - by ripper234
    Two scenarios: Directory I want my entire server to be password-protected, so I included this directory config in my sites-enabled/000-default: <Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Files" AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/passwords Require user someuser </Directory> The question is how can I exclude a specific URL from this? Proxy I found that the above password protection doesn't apply to mod_proxy, so I added this to my proxy.conf: <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Files" AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/passwords Require user someuser </Proxy> How do I exclude a specific proxied URL from the password protection? I tried adding a new segment: <Proxy http://myspecific.url/> AuthType None </Proxy> but that didn't quite do the trick.

  • Empty rewrite.log on Windows, RewriteLogLevel is in httpd.conf

    - by ripper234
    I am using mod_rewrite on Apache 2.2, Windows 7, and it is working ... except I don't see any logging information. I added these lines to the end of my httpd.conf: RewriteLog "c:\wamp\logs\rewrite.log" RewriteLogLevel 9 The log file is created when Apache starts (so it's not a permission problem), but it remains empty. I thought there might be a conflicting RewriteLogLevel statement somewhere, but I checked and there isn't. What else could cause this? Could this be caused by Apache not flushing the log file? (I closed it by hitting CTRL-C on the httpd.exe command ... this caused the access logs to be flushed to disk, but still nothing in rewrite.log) My (partial) httpd-vhosts.conf: <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin [email protected] ServerName my.domain.com DocumentRoot c:\wamp\www\folder <Directory c:\wamp\www\folder> Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny allow from all <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule . everything-redirects-to-this.php [L] </IfModule> </Directory> </VirtualHost>

  • What process is resurrecting mysqld?
