fail2ban postfix-sasl bad ips list

I finally got around to enforcing some fail2ban work on all the sasl attack attempts. It was out of control. After a couple of weeks of running fail2ban with a postfix-sasl jail, attack traffic has really calmed-down after systematically only blocking around 230 IP addresses. No list is ever complete, but putting these out there now so when others search these, they get an additional nod that they are up to bad stuff. You can also just grab this list at throw it at your firewall to block outright. After seeing the activity from these IPs, you really don’t want them connecting anyway. 

Here’s my block list as of 2017-10-29:

Monkeybrains Gigabit To The Home Status Map

Monkeybrains is now maintaining a map for those that bought into the first phase of the Gigabit To Home effort at the end of 2014 via their IndieGoGo campaign. It has to be so all of us will stop bugging them on how the rollout is going and when we get ours. But, I’m happy to see this is really happening and we can’t wait to help spread the speed and an alternative ISP option for San Francisco residents.

SPAM BOT

Found this commenet in my Worldpress spam comments area. Like me, everyone running a blog or comments section gets a ton of bots trying to post and send links back, but this one is notable because they didn’t generate the code properly or something and you see all the permutations of the wording. Enjoy.

Evernote Web Clipper On iPad and iPhone via Safari On iOS 7

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 3.08.36 PM

 

Update 2015-02-27: It’s been reported this no longer works on iOS 7.x for some reason. I’m unsure what Apple and or Evernote have done to disallow this, but a commenter wanted to add the disclaimer here. 

I posted the original bookmarklet to bookmark hack a few years ago and have continued to maintain it. Apple changed their iOS GUI pretty dramatically with the release of iOS 7, so I thought it would make sense to update the quick guide specifically to show iOS 7 users how to clip webpages to their Evernote accounts with the javascript to bookmark hack.

[OPTIONAL] If you don’t like a bookmark bar on your browser, you can skip this. If you do want a button always around to quickly clip a page, go into Settings > Safari and flip the switch to “Show Favorites Bar” to have a persistent bar across the top of Safari. You will see the guide with this option enabled.

20140308-135327.jpg

1. In Safari on iOS 7.x, go to http://www.evernote.com and add the page to your favorites with the arrow box before the location field. Click the “Bookmark” box. You can do this on another tab in Safari if you want.

20140308-135422.jpg

2. Change the name of the new bookmark from the site title to “Evernote Clipper” or whatever name you prefer. I will refer to the bookmark as this title for this guide. Save it after you rename it.

20140308-135515.jpg

3. Now select the entire text below. I have it posted as code or you can click the link to the text file and Safari will open it and show the pure text. You need to click this link to open the code in a new text page to easily select all and copy to your iOS clipboard to paste in a later step.

Example of the copy text you will need to perform

4. Go to the favorities icon in Safari to the right of the url location field and open your favorities and edit the Evernote Clipper one.

20140308-135527.jpg

5. You are going to clear the address the bookmark you just made.

20140308-135602.jpgand paste the entire code you copied from step 3 into the address field. Save the changed bookmark. This is your clipper now.

20140308-135536.jpg

6.  With the clipper code now in the bookmark, you can to Evernote. Go to a different website now in Safari. The example below is Google. When the site is up, click the Evernote Clipper button on the bookmark bar, or use the favorites button to the right of the location bar to select the Evernote Clipper bookmark. Either method will work.

20140308-135621.jpg If all goes well, you will be prompted for the initial login to Evernote. Enter your Evernote username/password.

7. The Evernote dialogue will open and you will be able to add more details to the page you are clipping before you save.

20140308-135635.jpg

8. After you save the quicknote from the clipper, you will see it in your regular Evernote account on your devices.

Killing Waze Ads On Mobile

Waze is a wonderful tool for commuters to help and alert each other to hazards and road conditions. But, the recent inclusion of ads when you stop are annoying.

I have a rooted Android device, so I decided to do something about it. Waze pulls the ads from:

venues.waze.com

So, I snagged a hosts editor from Google Play and added the host with a dead-end to 127.0.0.1

After adding that, anytime Waze ads are called, it will just kick an error screen and go away.

Better than a Jack In The Box ad IMHO.

When will Congress work like us… Online?

theinternetaseriesoftubes

Much has been made of the decision by President Obama to include Congress on the decision whether or not to attack Syria after their use of chemical weapons on their own people. No matter what side you come down on around these events and choices, the one aspect for me that stood out in all the dialogue was that the House and Senate needed to travel back to Washington D.C. to get anything done. In a country that prides itself on innovation and technology, it is really sad that we don’t have a legislative body that can get things accomplished like we do because their are unable or unwilling to transact their business online.

I understand the need for face-to-face meetings and the rules of the House and Senate. I realize the tradition and protocols are there for a reason. But, in the business world around the USA and the rest of the world, so much of what we do need to do requires online technology or it would be prohibitive or impossible to actually accomplish. We often don’t have the luxury to delay for a more optimal setting or location. Because of this need, there are many services now that cater to the needs of online collaboration, communication and synchronous decision-making across large groups of teams and organizations.

If I was a VP or Marketing over at WebEx or GoToMeeting, I would be dishing-out the free accounts. Or, at the minimum, running some better commercials around the fact that your business should be collaborating better the Congress can. I would love to see legislation over at GitHub. I would love to see Congress have the ability, in a non-emergency but yet critical time-frame, to be able to do a web conference or teleconference and do up and do votes for critical legislation like companies do everyday to meet our deadlines and stay competitive.

The requirement that a physical presence is still required to get things done is no longer reality. The Internet is not just a series of tubes. What will it take to get the Congress to innovate and use effective tools to work together and deliver for those that are already collaborating in new and innovative ways? It’s time to step it up.

The Free Web Kübler-Ross Model

denial-anger-acceptance

1. Denial

In this phase, you think nothing is wrong. All is well. You might think the free web service is lucky and thankful to have you. These are bumps in the road and it’s still pretty cool. You see more and more ads in your Facebook profile or the page loads slowdown because of ad networks. Perhaps, you wonder how these guys are making money, but you figure someone is paying something or they will figure it out later. Heck, the founders think they will figure it out someday.

2. Anger

The website or service you have been using for free has done something stupid and it has affected you. They mess with your privacy settings. You are getting sick of bots sending you garbage tweets back. They decide they can start using your content for their ads. You can either jump back into denial or move ahead to bargaining. Is there another free service I can bolt to? Screw them.

3. Bargaining

You install Adblock to try and make a dent into the junk. You are getting more and more junk/spam tweets from bots, trending topics are nothing you are really interested in.  Perhaps, if you just got a better Twitter client that could hide the mess and maybe you should take a different approach or something. Maybe, just maybe, you can gleam some value from your effort. You can stay here for quite a while. There are a bunch of free services that will come in here to try and help you cope with the mess of the free web. You can get more browser extensions to nuke flash ads, you can install and setup all the Do Not Track stuff (except that won’t work either.)

4. Depression

The realization that you have put a considerable amount of time into this over the last many months and possibly years but it is not working-out as you might have hoped. They have messed with you, your information and content, and your friends and you see these free services are not really there just for you. How are you going to get your stuff off their site? You are sad. It is at this point, you can go back into a state of denial or move ahead to acceptance and decide to change.

5. Acceptance

If you can get to this step, you eventually realize this is all part of the game. Those services you used for free made you the product. You gave them value because you and others are looking at your own stuff. They just provided the space and are taking advantage of you and wasting your time and others. Hopefully, this is the point you realize there are really no freebies without consequences.

Apple Internet Recovery Mode

When I was restarting and going to zap the PRAM, I got this message. I had no idea what it was. I must have been only holding down Command-R.

20121213-162949.jpg

Little did I know it was something added when I had previously upgraded to OSX 10.7 then 10.8 before nuking it all and going Linux. The MacBook Pro is running Ubuntu now, so it is not on my hard drive. I suppose because I don’t have a recovery/utility partition, it wants to go directly to the net. If you continue on, you can just on wifi and I guess do a full system recovery.

Here is the Apple page on OS X Internet Recovery >> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718

Had no idea.
