Pebble Watch

EMAIL AND ALERTS

I’m not a big fan of watches but I may have to pick one of these guys up. Connecting via Bluetooth to your iPhone it gets all kinds of nifty information from your phone and the internet depending on the apps you install to the device.

Pebble can receive simple alerts and notifications from if this then that (ifttt.com) More adventurous developers can use the Pebble SDK, with its Arduino-like abstractions and simple C structure, to gain full control of the watch.

Watchfaces

I should have taken advantage when the Pebble was on Kickstarter they were hoping to raise $100,000 for production and ended up with over $10 Million. By backing them with $99 you essentially preordered a Jet Black watch. If you’d like to pre-order one now you can do so on http://getpebble.com/ but it’s going to cost you $150

The watch allows you to view Incoming Caller ID information, emails, calendar alerts, Facebook messages, Twitter notifications and more.

Nagios check_http

Just a quick and dirty post regarding the Nagios check_http plugin. found a little quirk that kept me scratching my head for some time. I added a new site to my monitoring system and ended up getting a result of

HTTP OK – HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily – 0.174 second response time |time=0.17

turned out the web hosting provider was redirecting you to the actual content but the check_http plugin does not follow the redirect by default. I corrected the issue by adding “-f follow” switch to the command. This tells the check_http plugin to follow any redirects it encounters.

HTTP OK HTTP/1.1 200 OK – 1.010 second response time |time=1.009625s;;;0.000000 size=12304B;;;0

so your entire command should look like the following:

define service{
use remote-service
host_name [hostname]
service_description HTTP
check_command check_http!-H [domanname] -f follow -s “[String to look for]”
}

The final -s switch is optional but it will help notify you of any unauthorized changes made to the site your monitoring (eg. Hacking attempt).

WordPress XSS Vulnerability

If you’re a WordPress blogger be sure to update to the latest 3.0.4 build as soon as possible, While no new features have been fixed a major security hole has been patched.
Basicly 3.0.3 allows users to insert comments with malicious code, the 3.0.3 WordPress only sanitizes lowercase HTML allowing a malicious user to pass bad code to obtain cookies of a logged in user.

For now if your still running 3.0.3 check all pending and new comments for base 64 code or JavaScript links and if you see some delete the comment right away.

See http://wordpress.org/ for the complete announcement from the wordpress team.

limera1n verified on 4.1

Verified limera1n Jailbreak works with iOS 4.1 today, I’ve been running 4.0.1 for some time, and I decided tonight to upgrade to 4.1 to get HDR Photographs and GameCenter on my device.  I was a tad worried about trying the upgrade but fairly confident I could revert to 4.0.1 since I took the time to store my SHSH keys with Cydia (http://www.saurik.com/).

So if your currently running 4.1 on your iPhone and want to jailbreak it for any reason at all feel free to use limera1n (http://limera1n.com/). Its extreamly easy to use simply run the application plug in your phone and click the “Make it rain” button. then follow the instructions on the app until it tells you its finished.

After the app tells you its done, your iPhone will be off. Turn it back on, and run the limera1n app, you can then install Cydia and uninstall limera1n from your iPhone. Happy Iphone hacking =)

Hide WordPress Stats Smilie

If you use the WordPress Stats plugin, you may have noticed the smilie added at the bottom of the page. The plugin itself offers no way to remove the smilie, and is actually required for the plugin to function properly. I myself use the service to keep tabs on traffic to my site.

However not all users myself included like seeing the little graphic in the bottom corner of the page, but just because its needed doesn’t mean you have to see it. Using a little CSS trickery we can hide the graphic from the user. Simply toss the following line in the bottom of your stylesheet and while the image will still be loaded it will be hidden from view, keeping the plugin functioning as it should.
