PI
The Raspberry Pi microcomputer, which costs as little as $25/$35 and has helped fledge many a DIY hardware project, has racked up worldwide sales of 1.75 million, its U.K.-based creator, The Raspberry Pi Foundation, said today. The first Pis went on sale in March 2012, with its U.K. makers imagining they might sell a thousand in the first year (in the event they sold circa one million — and are now well on their way to two million).  (more…)

Projects
As promised, published an update to the IPBlock.sh bash script located in our Projects heading under the Blacklist Scripts section.  Added a bit more functionality to the script and cleaned up an error I found in it that was allowing some duplicate entries to creep in.  Added an additional output that I have found useful, a DenyHosts.ip file.  It’s prepped and ready to cut and paste into a .htaccess file.  Useful for blocking unwanted folks at the Webserver level.  You can modify it to say what you need for your own uses.

This script along with blockingscript.sh also listed in Blacklist Scripts, do a pretty decent job keeping UNWANTED trolls from the site.  Both rely in IPTables and .htaccess file to do so.
