Submission + - Keep smiling, waste spammers' time with OpenBSD tools ( writes: When you're in the business of building the networks people need and the services they need to run on them, you may also be running a mail service.

This article is about how to waste spammers' time and have a good time while doing it, using the free tools OpenBSD offers to do your greylisting and greytrapping before any content filtering.

Honeycomb To Require Dual-Core Processor 177

adeelarshad82 writes "According to managing director of Korean consumer electronics firm Enspert, Google's new Android Honeycomb tablet OS will require a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor to run properly. That means that many existing Android tablets will not be upgradeable to Honeycomb, as they lack the processor necessary to meet the spec. Currently, Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform is the only chipset in products on the market to include a Cortex-A9, although other manufacturers have said they're moving to the new processor architecture for 2011 products."

Comment Re:Bye Bye bce0? (Score 1) 176

Because it sucks by having hardware that cant handle memory above 1G, which means either it goes, or your 1+ G machine becomes 1G machine.
(or you start doing the ISA-bus style memory bouncing for all network drivers since any device can DMA to/from the same mbufs that the bce later should handle)

So either a massive rewrite of all other network drivers, OR, kill the driver for the broken hardware that pretends to be useful but isnt.

Then again, some of us dont use the randomized ipv6 addresses but rather get to choose the numbers ourselves (especially for servers which you may need to enter ips for), and in those cases, you can get away with having to remember five "octets" instead of four, like 2001:abc:def:123:: which means it will be possible to learn for you to use when the DNS is unusable.
