Safri Duo plays fantastic music, good drum and percussion skills, mixed with strong electronic dance beats.
I started to hear their music last year. Frankly, I have not heard any music as enjoyable as those played by Safri Duo. If I have to rate, I must say Safri Duo is the best drum and percussion player in the world.
Here are the best songs I love :

With that amount of new web content, there must be some blog search engines tailored design to search the blogopshere. Fortunately, I find technorati and Bloogz that serve my need.
Do you believe it ?
Sun microsystems has released the Ultra 20 workstation using a single-core 64-bit Opteron processor and the price is just US$895.
This is an unprecedented price for 64-bit workstation even it is an entry-level workstation.
Ha ha ha …. Shall I buy one for playing around with Solaris 10 ?
The blocking capability of spamcop RBL is astonishing. Within the first day, the RBL successfully rejected over 100 junk email from suspected spam sites. The amount of spam delivered to my mail server is reduced by over 60 %.
I note that major ISPs and big companies are also using the Spamcop RBL. Wooo... Spamcop has done a great work to the Internet world.
Mozilla Firefox Browser continues to win several distinguished awards in the IT industry.
Forbes Best of the Web awarded in May 2005
PC Magazine Editor’s Choice Award, May 2005
“...Firefox is a great little browser. It's a quick download, occupies very little disk space, and has a clean, no-nonsense interface.”
Dr. Paul Mockapetris, the Father of DNS, was granted the ACM Sigcomm lifetime award in May 2005.
In 1983, he foresaw the problem in the early Internet (then ARPAnet) of holding name to address translations in a single table on a single host, and instead proposed a distributed and dynamic DNS database: essentially DNS as we have it today.
When we want to check if an IP address 22.214.171.124 belongs to which ISP or owner, we will try whois search of one of the Network Information Centers (NIC). There are five NICs in this world handling the global IP address allocation, namely APNIC for Asia Pacific Region, ARIN (America Registry for Internet Number) for USA and Canada, RIPE for Europe, LACNIC for Latin America NIC and finally AFRINIC for African region. The IP address 126.96.36.199 belongs to a UK company, and if we try to use whois search in APNIC page, it will say hey this is not handled by me, goto RIPE. We will then goto RIPE and re-enter IP address in whois search box again and then get the registration information. This is quite inconvenient as we may need to access two NICs in order to find the registration.
At present, there is no one single NIC that stores up all the IP address allocation/registration of the whole world. Recently, I notice a site http://www.whois.sc which perform a single search for all IP address registration. I think this site will try a NIC at random, say APNIC, if APNIC says the IP should be interrogated at RIPE, it will goto there. This seems to be a great help to those who need to find IP address registration frequently.
How could CardSystems Solutions lose control of 40 million accounts?
A spokeman said thieves on the inside could have helped hackers to get inside, dumping viruses, or more likely, they exploited well-known vulnerabilities in the company’s computer system, using access codes that can be found on the Internet.
Apparently, CardSystems is not operating highly secure systems that meet the security levels of processing credit cards. In case of lawsuit, will the company go into bankruptcy ?
When the SMTP protocol was created, the Internet was quite a friendly place. VRFY and EXPN were convenient method of verifying email addresses. With the inceasing spam activities, people are taking the view that the two commands could be used by spammers to hunt email addresses. By all means, such information should not be given out as a matter of security and as a coordinated effort to combat spam.
The biggest IT news in this week is the release of Fedora Core 4 by Redhat. I tried to download this latest package from Redhat but there were too many connections out there. Wow…, will use the whole Saturday and Sunday to download the 2.4 Gbytes iso files.
The package that attracts most people's attention in FC4 is Xen 2.0. Xen is a virtual machine monitor (VMM) for x86-compatible computers. Xen can securely execute multiple virtual machines, each running its own OS, on a single physical system with close-to-native performance.
In IPv6, a dedicated address range has been reserved for this function. Link-local addresses always begin with FE80. With the 64-bit interface identifier, the prefix for link-local addresses is always FE80::/64. An IPv6 router never forwards link-local traffic beyond the link.
So at last, Microsoft fights back against Google in the desktop search war. Microsoft has recently released MSN Search Tool Bar which is similar in function with Google Desktop Search. MSN Search tool bar is integrated with IE browsers. After installing the toolbar, some extra functions are added, such as tab-browsing and pop-up blocking.
The most powerful feature compared with the Google counterpart is that MSN search tool can locate keywords in pdf files. Woooo. very cool and fantastic tool for every desktop user.
Equally, crackers can use nmap to scan ports, services and what OS version in a hosts or a network. That's why nmap is regarded as a threat by some network adninistrators. The reality is that if there is a host hooked up with the Internet, people can find out what ports and services it is running, even if the port numbers are changed to peculiar ones.
"define: noise" will give a list of definitions related to noise.
"fy noise" will give the Chinese meaning of noise.
Question : How does Google know that my OS is Chinese and then return a Chinese meaning ? In fact, Google does not know the language of my OS. The trick lies in "fy" which pronounce as "fan yi" in Putonghua, meaning to translate from English to Chinese.
So, finally, open source software gets the attention of European leaders.
When it comes to browser security, there is no doubt that Opera 8 will win. But it is not free. You need to pay US$39.
Think it this way. If you are tired of spyware, adware and pop-up nuisances, it might be worth to pay US$39 to use a security-enhanced browser such as Opera.
