Re: Drive partitioning and performance

I just ran a disk benchmark and my read rates on outer portions of my disk are nearly twice (70MB/s) those on inner portions (35MB/s). So logically, creating a music partition on this inner portion should be my best bet for performance... right?

Drive partitioning and performance

I currently dual-boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu, and my hard disk is partitioned into 3 partitions (one for each OS, and a central partition for data). I am thinking of creating another partition where I will store only music (60gb+) as this is data I don't really need to access quickly. Q: Is there a si...

SQL Server Stored Procedures: Vulnerabilities?

I just started learning about server stored procedures, and I am curious to know what sort of injection attacks they are vulnerable to. For instance, say I have a website: http://www.myurl.com/param1.param2.param3.html and the following code is executed on the server: exec sp_MyFunction param1, para...

Re: Looking for educational resources

Actually, that reference was right on the mark - thanks! Funny author too... Well, first a question, are you looking to be a developer? Yep, although not necessarily sockets. As you said, the OSI model is pretty theoretical, and I was looking for guides (like beej's) with more practicality. As far a...

Looking for educational resources

Hey folks, I just finished reading an older Prentice Hall book on networking which gave a great overview on the various levels of the OSI model. The book covered everything from the physical layer up to applications and basic network security. I've got a pretty good grasp on the theory of it all, bu...

Re: Question on Squid

Bingo - just what I was looking for. Selective forwarding for known computers to the proxy (which will eventually serve as a caching proxy as well, although not practical if its remote!), some different action for unknown computers, and bypass the proxy for gaming consoles, etc. Thanks for the help ...

Re: Question on Squid

Yeah I realize this not the most practical thing to do... I just want to see if it can be done. Eventually I plan to have a permanent proxy, but until then I want something to work with. So setting up the remote proxy will work... next question is how to send traffic this direction. I want to contin...

Question on Squid

First post! I am looking to set-up a transparent proxy on a home network used between myself and a few roommates... the internet seems to suggest 'squid' is a solution. The problem is, I do not have a permanent machine to install squid on and use as the proxy server. Can I install squid on a linux-b...
