    Parody of Diffie-Hellman

    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 //...

    Exchange rates

    So I've coded the VPS resources on ...'s order form to update in sync with the movement of various currency exchange rates. I pay for services in CAD and GBP and sell in USD, so my expenses are constantly shifting. Since 'exchange rate' data is publicly available, it was relatively easy to...

    So you Start - Sentient?

    I've read some horror stories about So you Start's support. Blah blah long response times for hardware replacement and so on. On the other hand, I have some servers with OVH and have never had a problem with them, so I ended up giving SyS a try a few days ago. So far it seems to have been...
