I agree with the above post: you're a moron, an overconfident bitch with very little knowledge.. Good luck.

This website is bizarre. It's not often I see so much hatred towards others. :sigh:

I have noticed that you quite often write 'PHP/LAMP' and would wish to let it be known that the 'P' in LAMP refers to PHP.

Or course, other technologies (Perl & Python) like to think they also have 'usage' for the 'P', but as your article clearly demonstrates: there are many who just follow fads and want to be included, most often for the wrong reasons.

Either write 'LAMP' or if you insist on writing redundant notation, use: 'Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP/LAMP'.

Nevertheless, your article was a good read, simply because it does burst the 'I love node.js' bubble. I would suggest using softer words in the future, however.

PS: It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to set up a secure/hardened LAMP server from scratch. This includes downloading the latest OS of choice. I am not particularly linux savvy and it really shouldn't take you a whole day :P

"Experience is no longer valued. Buzzword compliance beats common sense."

...all too true. There are simply too many know-it-nots running around shouting buzz words.

Thanks for posting.

I had never set up a full LAMP before, and I'd never been root before. I also had to look up all the proper security rules, such as disabling ssh for root and setting up an ssh tunnel for the mysql gui client.

If setting up Linux servers was my full-time job, I could do it quickly.

Also, I've seen the "P" in LAMP as Python.

The standard argument is “I risked my life protecting your freedom! I deserve this disability check!”

Please PROVE your statement.....yet I believe it to be rant from a coward. It lemmings, such as yourself, that didn't have the courage to serve. So is your site of rant a way of "getting back" at those bullies in grade school? Vets don't fuck with people who don't deserve it, so lay off asshole.

I already gave the reasoning. Most of the things the military does is a waste or harmful. If you risk your life for a lie and get injured, you don't deserve any sympathy.

It isn't heroic to blindly obey orders and do bad things.

Some policemen do helpful things, like catching murderers or robbers. Most of the things that police do is a waste.

how do you unzip those patches once you have moved in to your main folder... i have downloaded 7zip, but the file is name "RETAIL..." and 7zip says it cant open the file when i try to extract them...

I do concede that our government is corrupt due to it being purchased by special interests. But if taxes are theft, then how do we build an infrastructure that can sustain the free market? And please don't reference how we got along so well before we even had an income tax. Because I agree that we spend too much on the federal level. But where do we get money to fund a defense program?

Why is a huge defense program needed?

You have it backwards. Government doesn't support the free market. The (partially) free market supports all the waste and theft and fraud of government.

  1. Wow, you are getting a lot of hate mail and people arguing against you because you are stating simple facts plainly. Hang in there. Your logic is sound and your articles reasonable.

    • A lot of it is for old posts, especially the node.js one.

      I’m looking at job ads. When I see requirements for things like Design Patterns, Agile, or Scrum, I know the employer is clueless. Unfortunately, the large volume of clueless people have driven the competent people out of the market.
