Linux ClearOS. RedHat / CentOS
John Willemse    

Badkey goes: Linux ClearOS. Linux build on on CentOS. http://www.clearfoundation.com

ClearOS, Distribution Timeline and Software.
We are old friends to open source.  At ClearFoundation, our team has been together for nearly 10 years with over 118,000 registered systems in the field. ClearOS is based upon RedHat / CentOS Linux and has been developed over time by diligent developers with tons of customer feedback.

In 2005, we incorporated several elements of CentOS to the benefit of the solution.  We are excited about what the future will bring with new resources, developers, and partners in the future!

Badkey runs with SPF (Sender Policy Framework) record
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 1:05p   John Willemse
I know old information but just a reminder we are running this already as of Saturday 1st, July 2006. SPF (Sender Policy Framework) is an e-mail protocol that fights return-path address forgery and makes it easier for ISPs to identify spoofed addresses. For this reason, e-mail newsletter publishers who have published an SPF record stand a better chance of their e-mail being delivered. Is it a cure-all for spam? By no means, but it is an important step in the attack on spam. E-mail publishers [read] Keywords: blogSphere community linkedin smtp wiki

Wat zijn de voordelen van IPVanish ?

Eén van de bekendste (en oudste) openbare VPN-diensten is IPVanish (https://www.ipvanish.com). IPVanish laat meerdere gebruikers tegelijkertijd via hetzelfde IP-adres met internet verbinden. Hierdoor is het ook voor overheidsdiensten niet meer te achterhalen wie wat gedaan heeft op internet. De kosten voor deze dienst bedragen 10 dollar per maand of 78 dollar per jaar (ongeveer 60 euro). Betalen voor deze dienst is naast vele andere mogelijkheden ook met iDEAL mogelijk. En momenteel gr [read] Keywords: blogSphere linkedin server
