NitroHQ been vandalised?

(John Carter) #1

I went looking for the Nitro homepage to give it a mention to our local Linux user group and I found it has been vandalised.

That's just sad.

Really sad.

It looks like somebody, "Anonymous at (68.125.174.11)" has wiped the NitroHQ wiki homepage.

Indeed, very sad. It's too bad that people feel the need to target wikis like that.

I'm glad the page was recoverable, at any rate.

Perhaps put email confirmations on editing. Once confirmed perhaps the
IP address could be stored as valid for future use. Or something to
that effect.

FYI Ruby Garden Wiki is being hit hard once again. Seems they figured
out the defenses.

Hi,

Yes. But as it's a Wiki, it should be easy to revert to a previous
version. I had a look at that, but I was unable to figure out how to do
that. I was able to see a diff, but there's no easy way to say: "take
this version as the newest". This is an important featur for a Wiki,
IMHO.

Regards,

Dominik.

Thanks for reporting, I have rolled-back the earlier version. I 'll
have to add some antispam measures when I come back from vacations.

No. (At least not that I'm aware of.) That's kind of an inside joke
for anyone who was lucky enough to attend why's presentation at
(F)OSCON. :wink:

No. Check out "The Least Surprised - Time dot now.avi" or "The Least Surprised - Time.now Is_a MagicTime.mov" from http://whytheluckystiff.net/starry/.

"Synth" as in synthesizer obviously, but also a play on
the word "absinthe."

Damn! I was hoping to get through this thread without anyone pointing
out the fact that _I_ had misspelled absinthe. :slight_smile:
