John Adams on moving into the White House....

I pray Heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house and on all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.

John Adams, Second President of the United States. Letter to Abigail, November 2, 1800 on moving into the White House

Dear Chinese (bot-) friends...

Checking the log pages on this Webpage from time to time reveals some interesting intrusion attempts. Somewhere in Nanjing a bot or human is systematically trying to find entry points to this blog:

Chinese Crackers

1) Lesson number one: Check your logs.
2) Lesson number two: keep your systems up to date. ALWAYS.
3) Lesson number three: keep installed CMS, Blog-Engines, etc. to a minimum. Note the attempts to loing to Tiki, Wordpress, YABB in the screenshot. None of these systems have been installed here before.
4) Lesson number four: block all traffic from the address range with China Telecom, Nanjing. Bye, bye.
