Running Snorby on Debian (lenny) with Snort, Barnyard2 and Apache2

I recently setup a Snort sensor on a dedicated box and initially had it all running and happy. Then I stumbled across Snorby, and thought “that looks pretty mint, I might try that out” as BASE just wasn’t doing it for me on its own. In this article I’ll try and piece together a little about what the initial set-up was and how I managed to get Snorby up and running (and how I managed to get stuck several times along the way).

Inane halarity…

The other day I was going through some old files looking for something and came across a s**tload of pics and stuff that I’d collected over the years and used to be on one of my old websites. So, instead of uploading things in gallery fashion as they were I thought I’d post a few every now and then as I felt motivated.

But anyway, it got me in a good mood, which according to a couple of people is a change to how I’ve been over the last few days. Now the story behind that is too long, tragic and boring to bother typing out, but … meh.

Drop the Rate Mate – What’s it all about?

Ok, so some of you may have seen my 5 seconds (if you combine the various recordings) of fame, and plenty of you are having fun giving me grief about it. For those who missed it, TV3’s piece is here and TV1’s piece is here. So, what gets me into a suit and onto national TV you ask? Well it’s a new campaign called “Drop the Rate Mate”, and basically it’s a movement lending its support and allowing the public to better support the current draft recommendation issued by the Commerce Commission on Mobile Termination Rates. The campaign was launched on the 11th of August 2009 and initially there are …

Cafe lunches.

It has 2 b said, some cafes do good lunches! Im currently blogging from my phone from The Olive Tree cafe in Havelock North, having a flat white and some very nice spicy thai pumpkin soup (and as a lover of spicy food i can say it isnt a lie!). Good food, good coffee, and i have 2 admit im rather partial to the view too. =P There are certainly worse ways 2 spend your lunch break! =]
