Comment why not just limit attempts (Score 1) 330

wouldn't crazy brute for attacks like this be eliminated with simple attempt limitation? It maybe be able to do the bruteforce attacks at a megazillion per second, but if the connection is actively refused after 10 tries, what does it even matter. You could theoretically set the limit to any amount way under the total amount of possibilities and it still wouldn't matter. as for building passwords that are stronger, we need to move away from 8 - 12 char limits with case and special characters and force people to use complex strings that have 25 - 50 chars in them but are simple to remember for example something like "mydogsnameisfluffy" or "whydoineedacrazyasspassword" both of these are much harder to crack than "8&#sref"

Comment i ended up using untangle (Score 1) 338

I didn't have to do nearly the amount of stuff you are asking for. But I did throw in a spare box I had laying around and installed Untangle to manage / monitor the kids playing those damn club penguin virus sites and the like. It did the job and then some. But I do agree with the rest of the posters here .. this is almost impossible to do and way .. way .. unnecessary.

Submission + - A Real Stock Image Manager For Wordpress

vonshavingcream writes: "The powers that be would like us to move to wordpress for our new website. The only issue is that we have over 1,000 "stock" photos that the editors and writers would need to have access to while creating content.

I've been looking for almost a month, Can /. help me? Are there any good image manager plug-ins for wordpress? or any image management solutions that can tie into wordpress?

The main issue will be ease of use. While we don't mind the editors having to do some leg work to get the images into the stories, it would be nice if it just integrated smoothly.
