Mac 上 Firefox 掉字問題

剛剛做完 MacOSX 的 Security Update 後發現 選單掉字問題不見了:

所以這個 Security Update 裡面包含了什麼神祕的東西...?

BitComet 0.63

Release Notes 裡可以看到 v0.63 2006.3.7 的變動:

  • GUI Improved: fix the bug that somtimes torrent file can't be open properly after downloaded in BitComet embedded browser
  • Core Improved: Remove the old protocol header encryption, add new protocol encryption compatible with Azureus and uTorrent

最讓人驚訝的是 Protocol Header Encryption 全面改用與 / 相同的協定。

WordPress 2.0.2

[wp-testers] 2.0.2 on Tuesday 這篇裡宣佈將在星期二發佈 2.0.2,看起來是因為一個未公開的安全性問題:

We need to release 2.0.2 to address a security bug. No, not the security bug that caused all of the commotion recently, another one.

We'll get a package out shortly. In the meantimes, pull the latest from the 2.0 branch.


This contains fixes for both security issues as well as a handful of non-security bugs. Here's the list of bugs, sans the security issues.


Look over the bug list and target your testing on the effected areas. I'll add the security issues to the list when we release.

Tuesday is just a target. If we can't make it we can delay a bit, but we need to get this out soon.


Skype 的 Ten-only-on-Intel 限制

雖然最近沒時間看 所有的文章 (尤其是國外的新聞,像是 這兩個量又超多),不過看到 寫的「Skype 在 AMD 上的十方通話」之後,趕緊看一下是誰 crack 的。

因為在前陣子 合作,使得 只有在 平台上才能十方通話之後,我和某個同學就已經知道一定會被 crack 掉,問題是,會是哪位有名的大長輩 crack 的 XD

我是猜 這位對 DRM 感冒的長輩,而強者我同學則是猜前陣子惡搞 Intel-based MacOSX 的 ,太準了 XD

Norton 的誤判

Symantec Users, Start Your Keyloggers 看到的,當你在 irc channel 上輸入 "startkeylogger" 或 "stopkeylogger" 時,使用 Norton Internet Security 或 Norton Personal Firewall 的人就會自動離線 XD

原始的報導在 Malware-Speak Spooks Symantec 這裡:

Turns out that if someone types "startkeylogger" or "stopkeylogger" in an IRC channel, anyone on the channel using the affected Norton products will be immediately kicked off without warning.


是一套多人修改自 的軟體,以提供多人使用。WordPress and Lyceum 這篇提到關於 對於資料庫的設計:

From my examination of the code, it seems it’s exactly what is except they’ve modified every SQL statement (what a pain!) to use a monolithic table structure. We tested this approach for MU, but found it was too expensive to scale past a certain point. With monolithic structures you hit a wall based on your hardware.

In MU users are divided and can be partitioned easily, for example on we have the users partitioned between 4096 databases, which allows you to scale very cheaply and efficiently to hundreds of thousands and even millions of users and extremely high levels of traffic.

結果 對於 Database 的作法都一樣... (默)

FreeBSD ports 的 libtool 大變動

在 rafan 板上看到 移除,然後把 搞定,結果因為 pkg-plist 會跟著改變,整個 ports tree (~14000 ports) 裡面有 ~2000 ports 需要 recompile:

  Conversion to a single libtool environment.

完整的 cvs log 在這 (注意:網頁很大!):cvs commit by Ade Lovett,看起來是故意在 RELEASE 前 (5.5-RELEASE 及 6.1-RELEASE) 弄出來,讓新的系統就直接是新的環境。
