.htaccess password generator

Use this tool at Dynamic Drive to automatically generate all the code needed to protect a directory on your site. Below are the 2 files generated by the tool. .htaccess goes into the folder that you want to protect and .htpasswd should be in a folder not accessible from the web. I normally put my .htpasswd file in my apache’s base folder.

.htaccess file
AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /home/mydir/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
require valid-user

.htpasswd file

Hello world! The new begining, again!!

Yup, Hello world again. This time it is final.

I decided to move “TheDaneshProject Tech Blog” up a level to just “TheDaneshProject”. It’s easier to remember and seems to be stronger brand name I think. Don’t you  agree?

I am concentrating more on Linux related reads, general tech and also my passion for tattoos and piercings. This time I am going to try publishing as much information as I can get my hands on from the local scene here in Malaysia. Tattoos and piercings in Malaysia will also be my major direction.

Currently I am working on moving over my old articles from “TheDaneshProject Tech Blog” to this blog. Having some issues with the images and comments but I think I’ll have it completed by the weekend.

Stay tuned guys…..

“TheDaneshProject”, “share your mind”.

Vista not working with DHCP

my-vista-20070203.jpgJust had my Dell Latitude D610 upgraded to Vista Enterprise. Smooth graphics, good speed, good security (small box pops up each time you do something like install apps or change settings, just like Linux) and the side bar’s pretty sweet too.

Even with all the above I still prefer my openSUSE 10.2 with XGL and Beryl, It makes Vista look like a kitten. What did they put into all the source code?

Personally I feel that Vista ain’t as user friendly as I expected it to be or as they claimed it to be. It’s hard to find what you need when you need it.

Hit my first bug when I got back. My Intel pro 2200 BG wireless connection was not getting DHCP lease from my IPCOP server. The weird thing was that my LAN card was fine and my wireless connection worked fine if I used a static IP.

Spent a whole night trying to feagure out the problem.Good news is I manged to fix it with some help from MS knowledgebase and a few registry tweaks. It seems to be a problem with the BROADCAST flag in DHCP discovery packets. In XP it’s off and in Vista it’s on. Non Microsoft DHCP servers don’t like this.

See the fix on the next page; read more

Mr. Dell back in as the CEO

Michael Dell is back in as the CEO for DELL on request of his board members. Mr. Dell will be replacing Kevin Rollins who was the previous CEO and still a close friend of Mr. Dell.
Read the original announcement here.

My thoughts;

Personally I don’t know what to look forward to in the coming days bit for sure Michael will be moving the company in a forward motion with some good ideas up his sleeve.
