Simple log file processing in Python - The other day I found myself in the unfortunate position of needing to scan through raw server logs to try and gather some information around a rare issue. Opening these log files in a text editor and doing a quick text search wasn't a great option: the log files had millions of log lines, were 500MB+ in size, and the text editors just gave up trying to search, multi-select, and extract the lines I needed.

Hacker Finds Hidden 'God Mode' on Old x86 CPUs -,37582.html Some x86 CPUs have hidden backdoors that let you seize root by sending a command to an undocumented RISC core that manages the main CPU, security researcher Christopher Domas told the Black Hat conference.

Manually Throttle the Bandwidth of a Linux Network Interface - In complex service oriented application stacks, some bugs only manifest themselves on congested or slow networking interfaces. Consider a web-service running on a generic Linux box with a single networking interface, eth0. If eth0 is busy enough to completely saturate its networking link, a web-service running on the host behind that link may experience odd behavior when things “slowdown”. -

Hotkey Commander - Ultimate Hotkey Managing and Overriding Utility - Hotkey Commander (Abbreviation HC) is a powerful hotkey managing and overriding tool for Windows®. If you are a frequent hotkey user, you may found that while hotkeys bring much convenience and advantages, they act rudely and annoyingly sometimes. Hotkeys are usually defined or registered by individual applications. Some moral applications would allow users to redefine their hotkey combination so that they don't conflict with other hotkeys. Some "evil" applications won't at all. No matter what more and more hotkeys may become chaos and make you confused at last. Even if you don't use hotkeys at all, you may want to disable or override hotkeys occasionally so as not to be interrputed by their default actions. Imagine when you are shooting bullets with your enemies in some game and unfortunately hit the <Win> key accidently and then being forced to the Windows desktop. Well, by Hotkey Commander you can easily explore and manage all the hotkeys in your system. With a lot of great features including:

New Mail Notification for an Additional Mailbox - This morning I responded to a tweet from Tom Blackman (@itimlalake) asking how to set up a new mail notification for an additional mailbox in Outlook 2007. An additional mailbox in this context is a second mailbox on an Exchange server. Unfortunately, until 2010 Outlook did not support multiple mailboxes. While you could open and view additional mailboxes Outlook did not treat them as it does the primary mailbox. As a result things like new message notification and rules aren’t available for the additional mailboxes. Fortunately, there is a workaround.

Out of memory while mounting windows CIFS in linux - Prior to Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 we had to keep a large page file on the system drive (typically drive C:) in order to properly capture system memory dumps for troubleshooting. This presented problems as systems with very large amounts of RAM became more common, resulting in requirements for very large amounts of free space on the C: drive, or requiring that system visible memory be artificially limited for troubleshooting purposes. This is no longer a requirement thanks to the Dedicated Dump File feature, which is available for use in Windows Vista and later operating systems."
