When you wonder why your known_hosts file has changed or you don't find your hosts:
|1|AEf8B/QCP+1wRKA761Cq/woad4s=|HVEWXKDdRpZmO3GeQ5T37xCFwgE= ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1
Then your ssh server software is a new version which hashes the known hosts file entries. To remove entries from there because the host key differs (you installed the host completely from scratch), just type:
ssh-keygen -R hostname
ssh-keygen -R ipadress
If you have a new ssh package, you may hash yourself your known_hosts file by typing:
May many of your wishes may become true in 2012.
In case you've forgotten your Express Service Code to enter when calling Dell support service:
It's the same as the Service Tag. Dell claims it to be a "mathematical conversion", in fact it's just another representation.
Dell's Service Tag uses the digits 0-9 and the letters A to Z. So each digit of the Service Tag can be from 0 to Z. 0 represents zero, A is 10, B is 11, ..., F is 15, G is 16, H is 17, ..., Z is 35 (10 numerical digits, 26 letter digits). The service tag is a "number" in a base-36-system.
B78FWQ8 (this is a random example!)
B: 11, 7: 7, 8: 8, F: 15, W: 33, Q: 26, 8: 8
So at the end the "Express Service Code" for Service Tag B78FWQ8 is:
11 * 36^6 + 7 * 36^5 + 8 * 36^4 + 15 * 36^3 + 33 * 36^2 + 26 * 36^1 + 8 * 36^0
equals 24382049408. This is the express service code.
This blog will move to a newer hardware. The IP networks will remain the same.
To all my dear readers:
I hope you will pass well to the new year 2010 and that your expectations, projects and lucky feelings will succeed in the new year!
In Germany, we begin to celebrate Christmas at the evening of Dec 24th, as opposed to many other countries (celebrating Christmas due to Christianity).
On 24th, children get their presents which are put under a christmas tree, which is decorated with glass balls and (mostly electric) candles.
Dec 25th and 26th are national holidays.
What's that? From time to time I see this referrer in my log statistics. Which application is causing this? I found nothing on the net to solve this puzzle.
