It is said that you define a person by what they know. If you follow that through to its logical conclusion; a person is the sum of their experiences. Therefore, if you want to know who I am, I could just give you access to everything I have seen and done and everyone I have met. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to put everything I have ever experienced on the net. At least not yet.

comment How do I disable or modify pam's password requirements?
Yeah, it confuses me too... the documentation doesn't talk about it and the source code even has a long comment explaining how they're trying to be all things for everyone...very annoying.

This doesn't work. The next run of authconfig (e.g. authconfig --updateall) will delete your file and symlink it back to the -ac file.

I'm almost tempted to throw one together in ruby. On Linux I'd use gnome-open and listen only on the virbr0 interface. On windows, I'd probably still use ruby to send the message.

Sure, the Guest Additions could add a URL handler. The Guest Additions already has out-of-band communication with the VirtualBox and the Host.

I don't agree it would have to be a security hole. I filed a bug to add a URL handler to Guest Additions. If you are trying to host Malware in a VM, then you wouldn't install Guest Additions to begin with (it gives access to video, etc.).

comment Limit Time Machine restore point age?
The script worked for backing up, but I was never able to use "Enter Time Machine" to restore. I would have to dig around in the mounted sparseimage manually. Which sucked.
