JQuery Additions to Site

JQuery is now being used to provide some site features.

One of the first things I added was a floating block tab box, using both the rounded corner plugin and the tab plugin.

The tab box reads the h2.title from the enabled block, and transfers that title to the tab. The usual title of the block is hidden using CSS so it is still readable as a DOM element.

Features:

  • Tabs disappear if block is not enabled
  • 3 tabs, more than 1 block allowed in each tab
  • content is hidden until block is fully assembled, then fades in, pushing content aside

DeCSS Truth?

Some common unknown truth about DeCSS


So, you heard about Jon Johansen, the Creator of DeCSS? A brave soul,
which only intent was to help the linux community playing DVDs? And
you know, that the sole reason why he released only a windows version
of DeCSS was that Linux didn't supported DVD (or UDF) at that time?

Disk Wiper

Darik's Boot and Nuke Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot floppy that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

Virtualized Workspaces

I have jumped headfirst into virtualization, running both VMWare and OpenVZ as my platforms. I have virtualized my mail server, and can redeploy it in about 2 minutes all told, from nothing to a full blown fetchmail/mailscanner/postfix/courier-imap server.
