OpenSSL Heartbleed bug
Many of you may have heard about a newly discovered bug in OpenSSL. We are already running a patched OpenSSL/libssl that is no longer vulnerable but it advises to change any ssh keys or certificate based auth just to be on the safe side.
Owncloud available for all users.
We've set up an owncloud server for all our shell users. You can use your normal username and password to log in. You can find a permanent link to the owncloud server in the menu on the left.
Since this is a new service we're offering please do contact us if you find any problems with it.
Released php template
We just released our php template tokenizer!
The code was written as part of the upcoming project board for our shell users but has now been moved in to its own project. This project will serve as the basis for all of our upcoming php web projects including the public release of the TOR search engine, the next version of this website and of course the project board for which it was written.
The code can be found on our git server and a live demo of the example page here.
TOR search engine
Work has started on the next version of nanobot. This will once again be a full rewrite in order to be able to comply with some of the feature requests.
Update: Because of issues with Perl (most notibly a threading memory leak), the rewrite will be done in Ruby instead.
Update: Beta release of the bot + core & help plugins are ready.
Update: Beta releases for several other plugins added.
The files (still under development) are here.

You can also check out the SVN repository by using the following command:
svn checkout --username guest --password guest https://www.insomnia247.nl/svn/nanobot
Linux VM for schools
We've launched a pilot project today (Nov. 29th 2011).
Teachers will be able to use this virtual server for a limited time under their full control in order to provide a live teaching environment, and have access to an interface to easily add student accounts.
This project will allow schools and organizations worldwide to offer real experience with a Linux system in their classes, when they don't have the resources to set up their own environments.
