We create open-source because we love it, and we share our finding so everyone else can benefit as well.

The $170 MacBook Pro

It wasn’t until recently that I was finally given the chance to really start learning React-Native, and use it to create some apps for a client. When wanting to do such, that means that a Mac is a necessity. The reason being that OSX is needed to compile iOS apps, which require Xcode, which requires …

Parallels 5 build 9130 Issues

So, I upgraded my Parallels Desktop for Mac to build 9130 of 5.x, and it completely destroyed my Parallel Tools on XP, which was on a Boot Camp Partition. Uninstalling, and trying a different guest (Linking to same Boot Camp Partition), system did nothing good for the issue. No matter what I did, my original …

FreeBSD 7.0 and PostGreSQL 8.3 in Jails

Since the release of FreeBSD 7.0 many things have been changed to allow PostGres to run better than any other database under FreeBSD. To take advantage of this, I’ll show how to setup PostGreSQL in FreeBSD jails. Of course, the same method is used to install on your main system as well.

OpenBSD’s ALTQ

Ever since I took in a roommate, and then started using a VoIP service, I have learned that even having a decent home broadband solution wasn’t enough for my network. Many nights I would spend trying to talk to someone and realize they couldn’t hear me, or I couldn’t hear them. Other nights I would …

FreeBSD Jails in 7.0 (Revised)

Finally, with the release of FreeBSD 7.0, here’s the updated version of the usual jail tutorial tailored to FreeBSD 7.0. Enjoy!

Boot Camp and Windows

Like any other gamer, after switching all my computers to Apples, I had an itch to play some of games in my free time. With that in mind, I instantly setup Boot Camp on my iMac with my Leopard discs in hand, ready to install drivers. While it wasn’t that complicated, there were a few …

OS X Changing Terminal.app ANSI Colors

Since Apple released their latest release of MacOS X, changing the Terminal application’s colors have once again become a pain. Even with the previous release, you could drag and drop colors from the color swatch to the color you wanted to change. This feature has thus been removed in Leopard. Thanks to Ciarán Walsh, of …

TrustedBSD : Mandatory Access Control (Part 3) – Policy: MAC BIBA

For our 3rd part of the tutorial, we are going to cover one of the MAC policies. The first one is MAC BIBA. This policy controls the upward flow of information. In otherwords, it can restrict a subject (a user or process), from various abilities (We will explain this in more detail later).

TrustedBSD : Mandatory Access Control (Part 2) – Processes

As we continue on looking at the MAC modules, we will cover two more minor modules that will prove crucial to our learning of some of the more advanced modules that deal with policies. These two modules are mac_seeotheruids, and mac_partition. While they are very simple, they are still good modules to keep in mind …

Mandatory Access Control (MAC) Part 1 – BSD Extended Tutorial

While I was planning to do a simple tutorial covering all types of MAC security, I decided that one tutorial for all would really depreciate the tutorial as a whole. Instead, I’ll be doing a single tutorial on each feature, and later one to integrate them all together to better suit your needs. This was …
