Bullets for My Blog - Sometime
leashed un 2017-04-25 23:34:39

Since I spend too much time editing, instead of publishing, and I edit too much in the mind, instead of on the page (whether paper, web, or virtual), the risk runs real of simply losing ideas to those natural shocks that make cowards of us all - just witness the day-score since my last post! - I'll thus publish at the very least this crumb collection:

  1. Power and Pseudonymity
  2. Value and Mutability
  3. The Sound of Thought
  4. Those Ills We Have
  5. The Name of Action
  6. The Dream of Time
  7. The Point of Aim
  8. The Game of Life
  9. Cultivating Man
though order lies within the list above
you'll find it came not from the voice within
the eye adjusted till its needs were met
and fingers catered to its every whim

then lacking substance in so short a post
the poster went in search of rhyming words
no reason for each sentence to begin
no season for the fleeting life of birds

when writing sonnets, some will follow form
they rhyme in alternation, of a muse
others from God inspiration take
such clever, much despicable - a ruse!

yet here is found Umberto's key to fame
I speak of her, yet do not say her name
"Hello" - world

Less than twelve hours into this site's public availability, this entire server got visited by the lazy, skiddy sister of the pentest fairy. Though I don't presume to fathom the murky art of flooding webservers with garbage in the hope that some magic phrase will trigger their undressing and enlistment in your servitude, perhaps some bored entomologist might:

[EDIT: Due to Coleslaw choking when trying to compile a mere two megabyte preformatted block from markdown into HTML, the full log has been removed from this post. If you're still itching to read it, ask for a copy directly.]

My guess is that Hunchentoot is immune to tricks that seem better suited to PHP, and I also suppose that successful intrusion would be followed by purging of evidence; yet the most devious invader might leave only the evidence of failed attempts, cultivating a sense of false security in the gullible admin. Perhaps someday, I may be so flattered as to have this level of attention on my case, but my gut tells me this script wouldn't even know what to do with a REPL if it managed to squeeze one out.

A cursory study of the above material reveals that Hunchentoot, as currently configured, leaks whether a user exists in the system. Doing anything with this information beyond noting it in a blog post is left as an exercise, as is the configuration and deployment of better ramparts.

Should yous and company wish to achieve constructive interference in joint action, one will likely count aloud so all beg in sync. Counting down in Hebrew runs the risk of whispers or stress amplifying the already likely false positives from confusing the unvoiced fricatives closing "shesh", "hamesh", and "shalosh" with the natural element that concludes the count: "esh", the igneous; the others do just fine.

This is the blog of one Adlai, a mere conduit hinting ideas to the future. Should you find what's worthy of your attention, or better: curiosity! - please do let me know.
