In France, since 2007, big network operators are installing optical fiber in big cities. This new technology allow a very high speed Internet access, and new services
Since the beginning of the fiber deployment, Orange and Free, the 2 biggest French operators, are using two different technologies to provide us with fiber-based Internet access. What are those technologies ? What are each technology pro & cons ?
Let’s explain this, with some drawings too ! ...

Finally, since coucouf, aka Aurélien, sent me the source code of its tetris, I decided to produce a last video summing-up all what we coded for Arduino and LolShield from Jimmie P Rodgers during 26C3 in Berlin...
Starting with the graphic library of Alex Wenger, we created some programs and other liibraries : an enhanced version of the Charlieplexing library from Alex, a figure drawing library (Figure.cpp) and text drawing one (Text.cpp), with a minimal font.

In July 2004, Patrick Le Lay, who where at this time CEO of TF1 (the first privately owned television in France), was sentenced to a mediatic death because he says a plain thing, which was, at this time, taken out of its context, but which made him notoriously famous :
"What we sell to Coca-Cola, it’s available human brain time. " (cf wikipedia)
Today, I have a far better inappropriate expression to tell you about, an expression that has been totally unnoticed, but that really deserves your attention.

During that second day at the 26th Chaos Communication Congres at Berlin, I choose to make it a manual and active day : Jimmi P Rodgers, a friend of Mitch (the inventor of the TVBGone) brought an electronic kit called "LOL Shield for Arduino". It’s a 14x9 led panel, either green or red, driven by an Arduino, a microcontroller board with an Atmel 328, and a USB/Serial converter, which make it very easily programmable.
Let’s go for a small demo, source and video ...

This morning, the web site was down, certainly due to a ram issue. However, it is now back online.
After the reboot, postgrey, an anti-spam daemon using an automagically filled whitelist database refused to start with the following error in syslog:
ERROR: can’t create DB environment: No such file or directory
I found that the greylisting database in /var/lib/postgrey was corrupted. When I strace postgrey start script with strace -f /etc/init.d/postgrey start I saw misc error messages such (...)
