Hmm I see, you are right. If pterminal, which after all is no different than any other java application in Android, can give you a shell that lets you run telnetd as root, then any application can do it. I don't think Android runs java applications as root, so that means they did something funky with the telnetd (well, obviously, since you don't need a username or password, it is some funky embedded systems debugging telnetd, not the normal one) like making it suid root. So that is obviously something they need to change.

Is there a good android phone out there yet?  I need to upgrade rather badly.  I refuse to get an iPhone out of sheer stubborness.

There's only one Android phone at the moment, which is the G1 (HTC) sold through T-Mobile. Sprint is threatening to offer a CDMA phone with Android but not until early 2009. Lenovo is making a phone for Android but that is just for China at the moment. Motorola is making a major comittment to Android but they just started getting serious about it and don't expect to be selling anything until late 2009. Asus is also allegedly working on an Android phone but who knows when that will be out... So, for now basically it comes down to the G1. Or wait to see what Sprint comes up with, if anything. Or wait for Android to be ported to various hardware platforms. I am sure there will be Android on the iPhone soon enough...

Or you can get rid of that rule that you have to be root to listen on ports under 1024

Is it me or does Verizon always wait until the tech is no longer cutting edge before jumping on the bandwagon?  They have great coverage, but it's rather frustrating sometimes.....

well, how about that.
the problem of course is, the company was shut down, and quite possibly they weren't do anything illegal.
Doesn't sound terribly fair even if it helps the greater good.

The government wasn't involved in taking them offline, I think. It was handled by ISPs simply denying them access anymore.

So, 'legal' doesn't have anything to do with taking them offline in this case.

Still, it'll be interesting to see what happens when the lawsuits start flying (if any).

As for 'fair', well, if you're responsible for *that* much mal-traffic, even if it was out of negligence, you don't really deserve to be running an ISP.

although, they're a business, if they're bad at it, but they make money from the spammers... it's still a business even if an unethical one.

Well, they aren't going to be making money out of it now, are they?

Anybody else having this problem: firefox is rapidly turning to a big piece of shit.
It's gotten to the point where it's only a few hours before it's eating over a gig of memory and spikes the cpu for 3-4 seconds every minute or so. Insanely annoying.

I found a good page on diagnosing the problem, but it's just so frustrating when it decays to unusability.
I guess whining never really fixed anything.

How odd. On my ubuntu hardy install, i'm typically running 2 instances (2 separate processes) of firefox, both with many tabs open..  All together they usally eat about 550meg of ram... This is with firefox3, one profile with only adblock plus, the other with adblock plus, firebug, and one of the RSS reader extensions.  Hows your firefox setup like?

I just found out that you can use the wheel to scroll the tabs in firefox, much much faster than clicking on the silly arrows.

hrm.. I draw a blank, thinking on that info.  I'm going to assume you're on ffox 3.  Does the windows ffox3 use gtk, or MFC?  It's so much harder to diagnose memory leaks there.

Windows Firefox does *not* use MFC.  I feel fairly confident in saying this.  I am fairly certain, once you find the lowest-layer of their own graphics objects, they're using straight Win32 system calls to handle the controls, if not outright rendering everything themselves.

 

It uses Gecko.  And its own peculiar COM-like thing.  It has this amazing abstract layer for handling GUI elements in a cross-platform fashion.
