According to the mass media - the same that these days are so angered because people has voted for the Brexit or Donald Trump - it seems that the "gender gap in tech" is a very important problem. Forget about unemployment, or stagnating wages for those that are lucky enough to have a job: the low number of women working in the IT industry is the problem.

Fortunately somebody has checked facts, and the result is that no gender bias in job interviews has been found. For some reasons - which remain to be discussed - women perform worse than men in such interviews.

The point is that there is no gender discrimination, something that, on the other hand, I have never witnessed in the years I have spent working in IT.

Comments closed. I have no patience to deal with trolls, prophets of political correctness and the like.

interviewing.io is a platform where people can practice technical interviewing anonymously and, in the process, find jobs based on their interview performance rather than their resumes. Since we st…

Some months ago I had to replace my smartphone, a Xiaomi RedMi 1: it dropped and got broken beyond repair.

Given that my experience with Xiaomi has been bad, my new smartphone is from another manufacturer. What was the problem? Issues with the support provided by the Xiaomi which, in one word, is non-existent.

Here there is my story with Xiaomi, and why the purchase of a Xiaomi smartphone might be a bad idea for anyone who expects getting actual support when there is a problem.

#Xiaomi

Thinking about spending some hundred EUR in a Xiaomi smartphone? Think it twice: Xiaomi looks cool, but such coolness hides a negligible customer support.

The acclaimed (http://goo.gl/k7EI7Q) new #Ubuntu Snap package format seems immature on desktop systems regarding security.

Ubuntu's supposedly secure app package format doesn't do much to improve security on the desktop, according to a well-known Linux kernel developer.

Los creyentes en conspiración fueron validados por Snowden. El tema del momento es que es el FBI y los departamentos de policia que no pueden accesar al los aparatos encriptados.

El gobierno como gobierno, es otra cosa:


Encryption is “a law enforcement issue more than an intelligence issue,” Hayden argued, “because, frankly, intelligence gets to break all sorts of rules, to cheat, to use other paths.”

Jot Down entrevista a Carlos Pumares.

Fotografía: Javier Nadales «Sí, buenas noches, dígame». Así daba entrada Carlos Pumares (Portugalete, 1943) a sus oyentes en el ya mítico Polvo de estrellas, programa de radio pionero y único gracias al cual muchos nos convertimos en insomnes y de paso en verdaderos creyentes del séptimo arte. La erudición enciclopédica de Pumares en aquellos tiempos preinternet resultaba apabullante. Durante muchos años …

Fail2ban is a tool that bans malicious users that repeatedly attempt to break into your server. It works by scanning the log files of the monitored services - SSH, Nginx ... - and looking for patterns suggesting such attempts.

One feature Fail2ban has is sending to the server admin e-mail messages reporting such attempts. Given that such attempts are countless - they are automated -, those e-mail messages might not desired.

Disabling Fail2ban e-mail notifications is not straightforward, I mean, as far as I know there is not a single switch allowing to turn them off.

Fortunately somebody has managed to find a relatively simple way.
This article is a follow up to our previous article Postfix Brute Force Prevention. If you are running Fail2ban on Debian or Ubuntu Server as described in our previous article, then you are aware that you will receive an email every time the Fail2ban service is stopped, started or restarted.

En Galicia (noroeste de España) la dispersión urbana es muy común, ¿pero cuánta hay? En esta entrada del blog 'Terra e Territorio' mostramos que en el caso gallego este fenómeno se empezó a dar ya en Edad Media, y la medimos.

Una de las características distintivas del territorio gallego es su elevada dispersión urbana. En el conjunto de España, Galicia apenas supone el 6% de la superficie y de la población; sin embargo, en ella se localiza el 49% entidades singulares.
