      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  1. Evolving situation with the deceased killers in San Bernadino, California. You remember these two gems that shot up their coworkers and killed a bunch of people at a work holiday party. Loons hiding behind the veil of Islam, may I say wrongly. Well Apple is getting a dose of the DOJ in legal wranglings where the DOJ is trying to force Apple to unencrypt / unlock phone(s) belonging to the deceased. Donald Trump got vocal today on Twitter about it, calling for a boycott of Apple. Hey, I disagree, but boycotting Apple is a good idea based on their manufacturing outsourcing and money laundering alone. This now breaking: PHONE BELONGING TO DECEASED HAD PASSWORD CHANGED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF IT BEING IN FEDS CONTROL. Source: http://www.buzzfeed.com/johnpaczkowski/apple-terrorists-appleid-passcode-changed-in-government-cust It's an interesting situation pitting sane and locked devices vs. the insecure backdoored government / corporate free roaming that has been rather common on all handsets to date minus a few privacy hardened limited models. What do you think? Should Apple be complying with Big Brother? Is this just an Apple marketing ploy? Will Apple hacking own device send wrong signal to buyers who go and revolt and jump to competitors?
  2. If you're new to PHP, here is a simple parody of Diffie-Hellman expressivity using for loops to get you started. Conversion to a bash script will not be very difficult and you'll be selling 'strong' encryption in no time! :) <span style='font-family: monospace; font-size: 13px;'> <?php // parody of Diffie-Hellman for ($lines=1; $lines<=86; $lines++) { for ($dhm=1; $dhm<=150; $dhm++) { $dhparam = rand(1, 50); if ($dhparam == "1") { $dhparam = "+"; } else { $dhparam = "."; } if ($lines != "86") { if ($dhm <= "150") { print $dhparam; } } if ($lines == "86") { if ($dhm < "145") { print $dhparam; } else { print "++*++*"; break; } } } print "<br />"; } ?> </span>
  3. I'm going to work on adding SSL to most/all of my websites and I'm curious to know as to what place might be the best place to get them from. I already have a couple of certs, but what other places are there? I know NameCheap, GoDaddy are resellers for Comodo, RapidSSL as well as some others.
