In the last several days, I have done much to try and figure out how to increase the performance of, not only the domain, but the network in general. After plenty of testing, I have been leaning in the direction that the domain is not being slowed down by the available bandwidth, but the firewall’s filtering performance. In the next few days, I will do even more testing to ensure that is the case. If it is, I will modify the networks configuration for a much higher capacity of packet [Continue Reading]
The network modifications are mostly complete. Connectivity to the domain will still be intermittent for the next 36 hours while my new DNS information is sent around the internet. I appreciate all of my readers patience while this transition is taking place.
Traffic is starting to roll into the new IP addressing. I appreciate all of my readers patience while this transition is taking place.
My ISP has completed transferring me over to a different network connection. As a result, connectivity to the domain will be sporadic, at best, for the next 24 – 72 hours while the DNS server information is sent throughout the internet.
My ISP is in the progress of transferring me over to a different network connection. As a result, connectivity to the domain will be sporadic, at best, for the next 72 hours. However, during this transition, I will also take the opportunity to reconfigure my internal network. I am not exactly sure what I am going to do with it, but I have several plans of attack. I will have to wait and see what works best after I get a few more details from my ISP. Maybe even an [Continue Reading]
Originally drafted July 27, 2003, I have refrained from posting this particular web page because of the title I picked: Free Beer! However, I feel this information needs to get out to those people that need it. Now, obviously, I am not offering free beer or ever going to on this web site or any other. However, I have placed this web page here for educational purposes to guide my readers in understanding the various Social Engineering techniques that are out today, and attempt to get you to do something [Continue Reading]
With the recommendation for the Mozilla v1.6 client on these news pages on February 7, 2004, I have learned much since then. For one, just two days later, the Mozilla project released Firefox v0.8. I was not very fond of the Phoenix line of browsers, nor the most resent release of Firebird v0.7. However, the project has matured greatly since that point and I have been using Firefox v0.8 since February 9, 2004 with great success. As another point, people have also mentioned Thunderbird v0.5 as an alternative to the [Continue Reading]

Today, I found in my E-Mail a large number of W32.Netsky.B@mm viruses. Currently, every 3 to 7 seconds, a zombie system across the internet is attempting to infect my network. In order to reduce bandwidth consumption from this attack, I am taking the following actions: The "sending" E-Mail server must declare the size of the E-Mail, in advance (practically all do this, however the zombie spammers/virus ridden systems don’t). Any E-Mail over 20,000 bytes is rejected and the connection is dropped before it starts to be sent across the internet. [Continue Reading]
