calno.com online
There may still have some problems (due to the bad domain provider), but calno.com is fully functional now.

The downtime was:
26, Dec. 2012 10:00 (UTC) (estimated) to
27, Dec. 2012 09:00 (UTC).

About 23 hours, calno.com had no IP and no mail handler.

Now everything is online, and I am receving worldwide mails (and spams).

calno.com recovered
After some efforts I got back control of calno.com.
Once I make sure everything is OK I will announce it with a new post.

Anyway, www . dotster . com is a very bad domain provider. DO NOT USE their service if you are not a victim yet.

My domain was initially registered to a good company, www . addresscreation . com.
addresscreation is good, but after it got acquired by dotster, everything became bad and worse.

Every few months I have to handle those problems dotster made.
I will transfer my domain to other reliable domain provider as soon as possible.

calno.com disappeared
The domain provider of calno.com have some problems.
The expration date of calno.com is Apr. 17, 2015 (which I paid for), but I have no control over it now, and I have no idea who can access it.

I have contacted the domain provider, and hope the problem could be resolved soon.

calno.com have no IP and no mail handler now, so I can not get any mail sent to caleb@calno.com.:-(

The worst condition is I loss the domain till Apr. 17, 2015, and nobody can access it(Uh, maybe some crackers can do it).

DNS of calno.com recovered
DNS of calno.com was hijacked during
01/Nov/2012 20:06:45 (UTC) to
03/Nov/2012 17:19:30 (UTC).

It has been fixed.

Before they fix the problem, please use github [1] to get source of evilvte.
Two-gpg-key-signed SHA1SUMS was provided with the source, it should be safe enough.

[bug] libVTE scrollback buffer written to disk
http://www.climagic.com/bugreports/libvte-scrollback-written-to-disk.html

Summary:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Due to the way the history buffer is saved in terminal emulators
using libVTE after version 0.21.6, data from inside your terminal
window can end up on your local filesystem. This is most likely
unexpected behavior in a terminal emulator and represents a very
significant security issue.

Worse case scenario:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Classified, secret or medical information that was accessed through a
terminal window was thought to be safe because it was on a remote server
and only accessed via SSH, but now its also on the hard drive that is
for sale online or stolen without having been wiped because this
