$199 for an iPhone?!

3G, 8 GB of storage, multi-touch screen, Apple, thin, Safari, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm audio jack.


with about same price I got 1 GB of storage and keypad. Thank god it’s thin too (and perhaps still thinner than iPhone).


LOL Mission-E

I just realized that there’s this animu titled “Mission-E” that’s going to be broadcasted this summer.

Sounds familiar, I checked on wikipedia and found that it really is what I thought o_O

Yea, it’s a sequel to Code-E (lol obvious).

I think I need to finish watching the first season after all…


Chinami Ebihara is a highschool student who emits electromagnetic waves when her emotions run wild. The waves affects electronics such as cell phones, televisions, and computers. Her ability forces her family to move from one location to another. In the year 2017, the Ebihara family moves yet again. At school, a boy named Kotaro Kannagi notices her ability and asks if he can study her. Sonomi Kujo, the daughter of a wealthy family who has loved Kotaro since they were very young reacts with jealousy to his interest, while Yuma Saihashi, a miko with powers of her own tries to guide and warn her. Soon, two foreigners arrive to spy on her.

FreeBSD: 0, NetBSD: 1, OpenBSD: 1

Sil3112 (SiliconImage SATALink RAID PCI Card) is not properly supported by FreeBSD. The installer halted successfully on all my three attempt at installing it. (First one even stopped when formatting – said that it can’t find the hard disk drive LOL).

OTOH, NetBSD and OpenBSD can use that piece of hardware just fine albeit the claim of the card as “crappy” on certain mailing lists.


WTF. Pure-FTPd uses WAY TOO HIGH processor cycles. <_<

The server’s CPU usage gone like 90% just for pure-ftpd processes. So I decided to uninstall it and replace with vsftpd… and the CPU usage is now topped at 20% on vsftpd.

Conclusion: Pure-FTPd sucks (or perhaps it’s my system’s configuration. Whatever, lol).

PS: <3 Chihiro.

nginx/php 404 proper handler

If you find “No file specified” error message disturbing (as I did), here’s the configuration to remove it!

location ~ .php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME    $request_filename;

Don’t use `if (-f $request_filename)` – it won’t work and if is evil. Also the `try_files` will ensure that the file actually exists – effectively disabling possible vulnerability with public file upload on certain conditions.
