Further to the previous post regarding Amazon, there is chatter from inside Amazon indicating that it was aglitch”. Someone in their French staff miscategorised contentanythingsexualhad itsadultbit switched on.

This would explain why social text books on sexuality and books for the disabled were affected. They’re also stating that there is in fact, no newadult” 政策. PR screwed up royally by not having a straight answer. Was it a glitch? Was it a policy change? Are you going to change your mind tomorrow?

They’re fixing (or have probably fixed) the missing rankings. This still begs for further recourse. I think its funny how they can blame a French staffer. Maybe its a language barrier thingI can’t be sure. On a serious note, I also think its odd that there exists in the first place a feature for censorship which they have no policy for.

What say ye?

They’re still paying dearly. There are already new definitions online for Amazon rank. hehehe.

你们有些人可能已经知道,我建了一个家庭服务器不久前. 我记录了一些非常重要的组成部分是如何建,虽然我上一次全部释放所有的文件规划. 我使用Arch Linux的,我还没有接近尾声了一切, 特别是文档. 例如, 它应该是一个媒体服务器. 经过一番洗牌盘, 它应该结束具有 RAID1 为引导和 RAIð 10 对于其余的 (媒体部分).

这没有成功可言.

我得到尽可能有一个有效的 (和 良好防火墙) 路由网关服务器. 我终于确信定制本地路由*正确工作,我相信我的测试与 DHCP meant I could disable the DHCP service on the flimsy ADSL router and have all my flatmates start using the server as the Internet 网关. 代替: I was logged in to the server from the office, I’d just installed Apache2**, and I was about to consult with a colleague regarding getting nice graphs put together so the flatmates could all see who was using up the bandwidth***when I noticed a little message indicating that the root filesystem had been remounted read-only due to some or other disk failure.

And then I lost my connection to the server.

And then I gained a foul mood.

🙁

When I arrived home, I found that, as I had guessed from the descriptive message given at the office, 该 (很) old 80GB IDE disk that I was using for the root filesystem had failed. Unfortunately, 服务器永远不会再启动,并有撬事事休到另一个磁盘上的机会不大,继续在那里我会离开.

我买一个替代 (SATA) 刚发工资的日子后,HDD这下周末 – 我已经改变了我的主意,我的文档进度… 和备份我的配置:

早释. 常发布.

* 在南非的ISP收费较低 (易价 对照) 为 “仅本地” (南非之内) 在ADSL但前提是你使用了无法访问南非以外的Web服务的ADSL账号交通. 这意味着,如果你想采取的降低成本的优势,但仍然能够在大访问互联网, 你需要设置一些偷偷摸摸的路由.

** 一个命令安装: 〜$酸奶-S阿帕奇

*** 在SA互联网接入是昂贵 – 你得到收取约R70 ($7 / £4.9 / €5.46) 每GB使用ADSL时, 或约每R2 MB如果使用GPRS / 3G.

To fail at failing. I recently came across a discussion where a user was advised to run a fail command. The result was, luckily, as follows:

[user@user-desktop ~]$ cd ~/.Trash; sudo rm -rfv *
揍: 光盘: /home/user/.Trash: No such file or directory
bash: 南: command not found
[user@user-desktop ~]$

The command 光盘 ~/.Trash Çhanges the directory (或 present working directory) to the /home/user/.Trash folder. 在这种情况下, this folder doesn’t exist and so the pwd stays as /home/user/, the folder where 所有 the user’s files and settings are saved.

The command rm -rfv * Řmoves all files in the pwd. “ “vpart indicates that it must show verbose output indicating what is being done during this removal process. The prefixed command (substitute user ) has the command run as . 从而, had the command been functional, user would have deleted every document he had ever saved in his home folder.

Word of advice from a backup admin: backup often. 😉
