.:: Boycott systemd ::.

If you dont like systemd for whatever reason (e.g. you dont like complexity for simple tasks) dont use it!

"systemd is a replacement for the sysvinit daemon used in GNU/Linux and Unix systems, originally authored by Lennart Poettering of Red Hat. It represents a monumental increase in complexity, an abhorrent and violent slap in the face to the Unix philosophy, and its inherent domineering and viral nature turns it into something akin to a "second kernel" that is spreading all across the Linux ecosystem.

This site aims to serve as a rundown and a wake-up call to take a stand against the widespread proliferation of systemd, to detail why it is harmful, and to persuade users to reject its use."

Otherwise your Gentoo, Slackware or Debian Testing. They dont use systemd. Or install openrc where is how to do it on Arch Linux:

yaourt -S openrc openrc-arch-services-git net-tools syslog-ng

rc-update add udev sysinit
rc-update add syslog-ng sysinit
rc-update add cronie default
rc-update add dhcpcd default

edit /etc/default/grub add init=/usr/bin/init-openrc to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX

* You can chat without exposing your identity (or IP address) to anyone
* Nobody can discover who your contacts are or when you talk (metadata-free!)
* There are no servers to compromise or operators to intimidate for your information
* It's cross-platform and easy for non-technical users"

.:: Stellar ::.

"Fast database snapshot and restore tool for development.
Stellar works by storing copies of the database in the RDBMS (named as stellar_xxx_master and stellar_xxxx_slave). When restoring the database, Stellar simply renames the database making it lot faster than the usual SQL dump. However, Stellar uses lots of storage space so you probably don't want to make too many snapshots or you will eventually run out of storage space.

Warning: Please don't use Stellar if you can't afford data loss. It's great for developing but not meant for production."

.:: BDFProxy ::.

"Das Pentesting-Tool BDFProxy arbeitet zumeist wie ein normaler Webproxy und leitet den Datenverkehr einfach durch. Fordert der Client des Nutzers jedoch eine Binärdatei an, zeigt es sich von einer anderen Seite: Es fängt den Transfer und lädt die Datei zunächst komplett herunter. Anschließend versucht es, eine Metasploit-Payload in die Datei zu injizieren und gibt das Ergebnis schließlich an den Client weiter. "
