A Christmas Market Fiesta.

I followed the trail of the delicious aura of Czech food that wafted across the streets of Bohemia and landed straight at its heartland, the Old Town Square of Prague. To me it was the Mecca of Street food. The sweet smell of ginger bread and roasting sausages drifted along with the crowd through the cold air. Warm apple cider, cold holiday beer and warm spiced wine delighted the senses as one revels in the enchantment of the season.

Movie of a lifetime - INTERSTELLAR!!!


1_zps9e65af83Before I even begin writing my review for INTERSTELLAR, let me take this opportunity to say that most of the viewers, perhaps many of them will not UNDERSTAND the film fully, I mean watching INTERSTELLAR and claiming it’s title in your ‘watched movie’ list is one thing, and understanding this epic is another, an entirely different ballgame, really, since this film is practically layered with emotions so deep that in quite a few moments I happened to realize that I was holding my breath for so long that my chest cavity ached, and it’s not because of only a few, but very effective stunning visual effects (which is a regular feature in Christopher  Nolan’s movies), it’s because the subtle yet, very powerful emotions and moments of this film ‘hits simply below the belt…’ and where it really hurts!

1. Home Internet Gateway

Verizon FiOS has long provided a standard DHCP-enabled RJ45 female connector as their service end-point in the basement of our house. The first thing that I have connected to the FiOS endpoint is the ETH1 ethernet port of a old Pentium-4 tower happily and adequately running the Zentyal 3.5 open-source Small Office Server with 2GB of RAM. The other NIC of this server, ETH0, is connected to the rest of my home LAN (which I will document in a future note for my own sanity while debugging network problems). Zentyal 3.5 integrates Squid running in Transparent Proxy mode with Dansguardian content filter and Ad-Zapper ad blocker, ClamAV anti-virus, Suricata intrusion detection system (IDS) / intrusion prevention system (IPS) and more goodies. Along with the built in firewall, this out-of-the-box configuration immediately filters out most of the unwanted and harmful stuff with little configuration needed, thanks to Zentyal 3.5's awesome browser-based UI and beautiful design and implementation.
