Book review homework

“Pride and prejudice” is an impressive classical English literature that tells a story about the relationship around the dutiful Jane, the quick-witted Elizabeth, the rich gentleman Darcy, and his friend Bingley.

The book tells a story about Darcy, who is the one that split Jane and Bingley because of his worries about their marriage, falls in love with Elizabeth, but is refused by her because of his pride attitude. Mr. Darcy then leaves a letter for Elizabeth in order to explain himself. After some incidents, Elizabeth forgave Mr. Darcy’s pride, and her prejudice disappeared. She accepts Mr. Darcy’s marriage proposal, and they live happily ever after.

It’s a book full of charm in which the author has picturized the capitalist society of England during the seventeenth century, in which people’s life was controlled tightly by the money and status. But the author selected a unique view, which showed people that below the cold surface of a man, there could be a warm heart. The story is awesome and full of surprises. And though it, we can find the power of true love can never be stopped by pride, prejudice, or any other thing. It will always surpass those emotions and finish their purpose.

DoS defense

Now, this site is free from small DoS attack. I use iptables, evasive, and some other techs to protect this site. Iptables will kill most DoS links after it reached some condition. I think any DoS attacker with only one IP can’t flood my site now. Cheers!

New server for new app

Well, a new Linode server with LUKS has been build to support this website and a branch of new applications. Build a LUKS encrypted system on a VPS is an exciting experience. However, sometimes, it seems stupid to do so. Since an admin who records every keystroke will easily record the password for LUKS. But my password is not for Linode, but for its hardware maintainer. I do not think Linode will record custom’s keystroke in their Lish console, at least not publicly. If they record it privately, it will only be available to a little part of their organization. So that if a disgraceful programmer wanted to record every file created in all Linode systems, he/she would not get my password to do it, though I’m not sure.

Of course, everyone who wants to get the LUKS key can do it by analyzing the memory. But it needs time and attention. So, hopefully, if people can put very sensitive like customers’ credit card numbers on Linode server without any encrypt, perhaps I can put my diary on it too.
