Less IT admin things, more general IT for me.

Findings:

The Department of Homeland Security’s United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT)” (wow!) has surprisingly good suggestions and tips of all things IT for all types of users. Lovely, well written articles. Even came upon this old news – Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Vulnerable to Brute-Force Attack. Remember to turn off WPS or update to latest firmware.

I keep discarding and archiving bookmarks that I just don’t have time to read, but still want to. >1 Mb archive

Perfect IT interview (Russian) which never happens in real life.

Gartner report for PaaS.

IEEE Ethernet 802.3. (Russian) A note on the standards.

Old news (“With Android 4.1 (aka Jelly Bean) the full system log is only visible if you have root.”), but still annoying. Translating into – you can’t have central log files for tracking system events (a common case might be – a phone randomly reboots). No way you’re finding out why. There’s no event viewer or crash dumps.

One of the most amazing articles about virtualization solution appliance I’ve read recently (Russian). The level of technical detail is amazing. Custom solution on XenServer for streamlining testing, a lot of scripting and observations.

How does one become the CEO of a Fortune 500 company? Curious.
