Can you believe this!? two... TWO years without any entry in this diary!

So what's up?

I don't live in canada anymore :(, I've moved back home.

I have a new job, as an "IT Manager". (I don't know how to translate accurately my job title from my native langage to english.)

Anyway, may be I should start writing some few ideas or rants in that diary. Even though my english, have never been so bad!

Oh my ..!!! Today will be a tough day, It's 7:56 am and I didn't sleep... I've coded all night long. Why the hell did I do that ?

Ok, playing with python was cool. Even though in this little exercise I didn't used all the python features I already like the OOP flavour that python gave to my code. I mean I like that python give me the inclination to use OOP. I like the error handling scheme and a lot of other stuffs (some interesting datatypes).

By the way, I don't think I'll switch from perl to python. I am in a relationship with perl ;)

Anyway, It's hard to work today because I'm sick! Took me three hours to make some basic stuffs I usually do in half an hour!! Fever and headache ruin my productivity! I think it's time for caffeine...

I've decided to take a break in 'motion' coding this week-end, and to give a look at python langage. I am coding a small ident server (rfc1413) python module just to get used to python syntax.

Beer! Ok, today was a good day.

I've done some real work on 'motion' (Yet another PHP+MySQL e-commerce engine). The name is not fixed. I call it 'motion' for some obscure reasons I don't even remember myself...

AFAIK, the buzz around ISN predictability is justified. They might have found a more accurate way to predict ISNs due to a not truly random generation of this ISN by the ip stack. Well I'd prefered a new attack scenario involving this old and well known TCP weakness.

Geez, my english is so broken !!! ...
