Don't solve their problem, rather teach them how to solve their problem, so they can go on to found the next major company.

Into air is deliberate fun. Finding one's skis later, less so.

comment How do we instruct our employees to protect themselves from Heartbleed?
@WayneConrad, I can only speak of what I'm doing. Start by updating software, changing passwords, and redoing keys. Also upgrading my own source code with the latest and best security features, e.g. parametrized SQL, better logging, better error processing, and always code review. Then there is always work to be done keeping up on the latest, e.g. watching the talks at Defcon, to learn as much as I can from those guys who break in for a living, etc. Also cutting off connections between systems that don't need to be connected.

comment How do we instruct our employees to protect themselves from Heartbleed?
In the world of security we want to imagine that something is secure, but it never is 100%, not ever. So the best we can do is take steps towards security. These are good. Can we be absolutely sure this is enough? No. But do take the little steps anyway. my 2c

comment Why is the response on localhost so slow?
Also, why are you using an IP for ServerName? In the docs it talks about "Syntax: ServerName [scheme://]fully-qualified-domain-name[:port]", e.g. ServerName secure.localhost:80, or is it ServerName secure.localhost.:80 (with a right most dot to make it a FQDN? (See: httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/core.html#servername )

comment Network Latency and Timing as shown by Chrome
Without getting under the hood of Chrome, and in your specific environment, (which is practically impossible) the best you can do is to look at it's inputs and outputs for clues. Glad you got to watch these. I found them quite interesting. Was very impressed by this woman. A good example I think of how to approach timing problems in a network connected world. So, have you been able to load wireshark and start to get any traces?

comment powershell script waits for printing output until I press a button
humm? Then there appears to be something strange about query farm /process, like it's stopping and asking for standard input or something, or a batch file, or checking some env variable, or something strange. ??

comment Powershell challenge
I think this challenge it is misleading and furthermore not a fair comparison of linux to PowerShell. If rev were to only sort the last character then it would be fair. Also what might be more fair would be to also ask people to write bash or whatever to only sort the last character, and not simply do: "ls | rev | sort | ls". But honestly, why anyone would want this odd function I'm still scratching my head over, except perhaps to try and convince someone that PowerShell can be as compact as sh, but with a comparison of apples to oranges?

comment powershell script waits for printing output until I press a button
So I had a little time to think about this, and if you get the chance please run the script I wrote above as a test. It will be interesting if it too has the same trouble, because it does not have that trouble here.
