New Page on Web Site

Added a new page on my web site pertaining to using external
mailto links in Firefox with older text email programs like
mutt and pine. You can read it at:

Firefox and External Mailto Links

Only a couple of weeks until OpenBSD 4.3 is released! Yay! Time to do the upgrade dance. Only thing I hate doing is messing with
nut on my one box. Took me a long time to figure it out. Even
after I thought I had it right, turned out I didn't and I had to do
some more reading and work on it. I've put off upgrading from
4.1 to 4.2, partly because of the libexpat issue, but mostly from
laziness and taking advantage of of the OpenBSD development
team's kindness in providing security patches back 2 release
versions. I'd say that last reason probably makes up 90% of my
reason for being an upgrade laggard. :-)

I've had good success in getting pf and ssh working well with
my windows box and also with pure-ftpd. I especially love
the bruteforce rule capabilities!

That's it for now. Stay safe, stay secure. Use OpenBSD. That'll
take care of most of your security right there!

Denny,

You have a really great site going. I recently switched from Linux to OpenBSD on my home desktop and your tips and tricks here and on your polarwave.openbsd101.com site have really helped. Please, keep up the great work!!

Cheers!

I'm always glad to hear the stuff I put
up is helping someone. It's been a hard
road learning this stuff. It's probably
not that way for everyone, but, like I
always say, I ain't the sharpest tack
in the box! :-)

Cheers
