Someone is trying to brute force login to my blog admin page. My logs show over 700 (and growing) unique IP addresses hitting my login page over the last 10 hours. Coming out to about 400 attempts an hour. LoL, At that rate I will be dead by the time it breaks my password! Maybe I should add a delay to the login page to tie up more of the abusers resources.

I just fired up 300 c1.xlarge EC2 instances for a total of 2400 virtual cpu's and 2 TB of ram. No need to wait months to convert/manipulate a billion multi-page TIF's it will be done today. I love this stuff! :-)

I love that Google is tracking flu trends. Looks like there are no safe cities in the US right now http://goo.gl/2HxY
We've found that certain search terms are good indicators of flu activity. Google Flu Trends uses aggregated Google search data to estimate flu activity.

Working on transferring 50TB of files (over 1 billion files) to Amazon S3. This will need to be a multi-threaded or multi-process application to optimize throughput since S3 caps a single transfer at roughly 25mb/s. There is no cap on the number of connections that can get 25mb/s though. This project will be fun!

I need to find 1 file that contains specific text that is inside of a zip file. There are 30,000 zip files that might contain this file with specific text. I'm so glad zipgrep + find exists. :-)

I found that the following option was faster than zipgrep:  unzip -p file.zip filename | /bin/grep -Pzo "pattern"

Just updated my wordpress blog from a very old version to the latest. I also set it up with a Thesis to make future updates easier. Last, I added some new plugins and removed some old ones. My blog feels cleaner! Now to write something. It's funny how writing code is more fun for me than writing articles.

Finished connecting 23 hard drives to three 10 port USB hubs. Now we are ready to test the drives, copy data and ship to clients. I like dealing with large amounts of data.
