Make your *nix server alert you with email or sms messages on invalid login attempts

If you run a private server or just one that not many people should log into this is a very useful hack to your linux or *nix server. The idea is to be alerted when there is a breakin attempt on your server. Its actually not much work but took me a bit of research to find the answer so now that I have got it working on my server I thought I'de share this friendly little hack. This will allow me to know when people are trying to login to my server, mine happens to be a provate server so If Im not logging in then its someone else.

Java: Problems with containsIgnoreCase

This project came about because I wanted to use the containsIgnoreCase() function in Java. well it doesn't work!

Java can use equalsIgnoreCase however containsIgnoreCase doesnt work so this discribes a workaround

example: with equalsIgnoreCase() here we are checking to see if the string EQUALS the value we pass in this case "java"

String myString = ("Java is a great programming language");

if (myString.equalsIgnoreCase("java"))

BotScout Module for Drupal

I run a few Drupal sites and always have trouble with bots so I have created a module to get rid of Bots once and for all!! BotScout is a third party software that checks a database of known bots and returns a response code. This module will check if a person is a bot when they register to your site if they are they wont be able to create an account. At this time the module is NOT a drupal supported module it is a third party module created by me but I plan on making it a fully supported drupal module in the future.

fixing the e100 module in linux

Ok I have two machines I recently installed linux on one is a Compaq Armada E500 and the other is a Toshiba Portege 3500. The Armada is running Suse 6.0 and the Portege is running BackTrack R2. Both machines came up with the same error message for my network adapters they both happen to be Intel NIC's.

Toshiba Portege 3500 screen

This project started because of a problem i was having with my Toshiba Portege 3500. The computer is a tablet pc that i got with no OS installed ( well it was corrupted so I needed a fresh install ) After reinstalling windows I tried many many drivers trying to get the tablet pen to work on the screen. Each time people reported these drivers worked but they just wouldnt for me. This was irratating and I couldnt seem to figure out what I was doing wrong, damn it.
