La Gran Estafa por John Grisham


Este libro lo vi en el facebook de la librería y me llamo mucho la atención, pensé por un momento que trataba de estafas de casino, o robos de bóvedas o algo a lo que Hollywood nos tiene acostumbrado (Ocean 11 o The Italian Job). Estaba equivocado, no tiene nada que ver con esto. Narra la historia de 4 companeros de la universidad: Mark, Todd, Zola y Gordy, como estan estudiando derecho en una universidad de bajo renombre, y se están dando cuenta que van a concluir sus estudios y no se sienten preparados. Entre los cuatros tienen casi 1 millón de dolares americanos en deuda. Provocando que uno de ellos decida saber como se dejo tentar por ese mundo perfecto de obtener un préstamo y después iba a tener un excelente trabajo. Es cuando descubre que a pesar de no ser ilegal, es un engaño total, ya que estaban en una fabrica de hacer titulos universitarios y no garantizan, absolutamente nada. Solo que tenían que pagar la deuda. 

Se los recomiendo, mas si desean una recomendación para volver a leer un libro.

Find which devices are connected to our network

Sometimes, we want to know how many devices are connected to our network. With any Unix OS you get easily know this. For this small tutorial we´re going to use Lubuntu 16.04. We will use nmap. Nmap (Network Mapper) is a security scanner. It is used to discover hosts and services on a computer network. For installing it, we first do sudo apt-get install nmap If we just need to identify the host names  sudo nmap -sL 192.168.0.1/24  The result of this command will be Starting Nmap 7.01 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2016-10-02 12:39 CST Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.0 Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.1 Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.2 Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.3 Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.4 Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.5 If we need to know the OS of the devices we have connected we do a: sudo nmap -O 192.168.0.1/24 The address 192.188.0.1 depends of your network, you should do a ifconfig for knowing yours. The result of this command will be something like this:

How I miss you Synaptic!

Several years  have passed since we saw the Synaptic included in Ubuntu. You can found reasons here  . So in a clear english the reason was to have a better add/remove program for users. A friendly application. The explanation sounds good, I didn't complain about that, until right now. Ubuntu has change a lot, it's really a friendly user OS. I have use CLI when necessary, but today I couldn't believe it. I'm a Google Chrome user, I know you will tell me it's not open source or I should use Chromium or FF. But no. I'm a user of Google Chrome, and many people also prefer Chrome over Chromium, so why it should be quite complex remove it? If Ubuntu wants to be more friendly user why you should use the terminal for removing one of the most popular web browsers? I could understand if is a browser few people use, a good reason. But not a popular browser, Chrome is one of the most popular browsers on the world! A screen shot of the Ubuntu Software Center, trying t

Access to AWS Postgres instance in private subnet

I have been working with AWS in the last days and encounter some issues when using RDS.  Generally when you're working in development environment you have setup your database as Publicly accessible and this isn't an issue. But when you're working in Production. So we place the Amazon RDS database into a private subnet. What we need to do for connecting to the database using PgAdmin or other tool? We're going to use one of the most common methods for doing this. You will need to launch an Amazon EC2 instance in the public subnet and then use it as jumping box. So after you have your EC2, you will need to run the following command. See explantion below After this, you will need to configure your PgAdmin. The host name will be your localhost, the port is the same you define in the above command. Maintenance database will be your DB name and the username you have for connecting. Hope this helps you connect to your databases.
