The Naughty Step of Social Networking

I was given the naughty step on a Social Networking Site (SNS) after someone complained about a comment of mine in a thread.  The individual(s) was a member of a discussion group but was repeatedly hijacking a thread and the admin dropped the individual from the group after repeated attempts at derailing the group.   The individual was hurling insults, resorting to name calling and practically slagging everyone in the group.    Clearly, sour grapes where on the menu for the complainer and SNS  deleted an 'offending comment' I had made in the thread because it violated their T&Cs, but did not explain specifically what violated their T&Cs.  That's their right, but it would have been helpful for me to know.

This is nothing major as far as I'm concerned, but I am curious what exactly the following comment violated?

The SNS account shows as which seems to be a very unfinished account just a new one of 's I guess. Anyway, I had to go to my e-mail archives to fill in the blanks above. I'm reading the same troll-like, tone, intellect and playground name calling as The Plectrum from Outer Space ... are they in cahoots now?

I've been through the SNS's community standards and let me tell you, I am stretching to figure it out.

Was it that I mentioned a link to a SNS user, who was participating in a thread on SNS?

Was it that I mentioned their given name -the same one they use in their SNS account?

Was it that I expressed my opinion on the comments left by the individual?

I guess I'll never know...

Poor Mans' Splunk

There are many commercial products for scanning log files and reporting but I just needed something simple and low cost.    This is a very basic script that periodically scans a log file and e-mails an alert when a particular pattern is found.  I run this every 15 minutes on my syslog server.

#--------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
#
# Poor man's Splunk - grep syslog for patterns and send e-mail alert
#

# number of seconds to wait between alerts
WAIT=3600
ALERT=0
CURTIME=0
LASTALERT=0

# Set the path to a file where we'll keep track of the last time we alerted
LASTALERTFILE=/path/LogMonLast.txt

LOGFILE=/var/log/syslog
GREP=/bin/egrep
#
# Add strings to search for
#

STRING[0]="Source: CiscoUnity_UMR|ID: 137"

STRING[1]="VLAN mismatch discovered"
STRING[2]="Duplicate address"
STRING[3]="Failover"

element_count=${#STRING[@]}

index=0

if [ -f "$LASTALERTFILE" ]
        then echo "Alert file found"
        else
        echo 0 > $LASTALERTFILE
fi


while [ "$index" -lt "$element_count" ]
do
        echo ${STRING[$index]}

        grepResult=`$GREP "${STRING[$index]}" $LOGFILE`
        if [ $? -eq 1 ];
                then echo "No match for ${STRING[$index]} in current $LOGFILE"
        else
                LASTALERT=`cat $LASTALERTFILE`
                CURTIME=`date +%s`
                TIMEDIF=`expr $CURTIME - $LASTALERT`
                if [ $TIMEDIF -lt $WAIT ]
                        then echo "Warning suppressed - not enough time elapsed since last warning"
                else

                        date +%s >$LASTALERTFILE
                        mail -s "LogMon: ${STRING[$index]}" -t your.email@address.ok << EOF
The search string

${STRING[$index]}

was found in $LOGFILE

the search result was

$grepResult

EOF
                fi
        fi

        ((index++))
done

exit

Audiofumes Podcast Dec 20, 2012

I've finally put together Episode 9 of the LIVE Audiofumes podcast to be streamed live at 8PM EST on Thursday, December 20, 2012.    I know, it's supposedly the day before the end of it all and some people will be busy with end of the world preparations but even if it where going to happen (which it isn't) what better way then to listen to these creative rhythms and frequencies all packaged up in a nice binary streaming waveform  much like the energy of the universe itself.

This show, as with the other shows, this will be a multi-genre (you know, Metal, R&B, Electronic, Crash, HipHop, Rock, Pop, and more) show featuring independent artists from all over the globe.    Many of these artists are from the Pangaea's People collective and I've even got some new artists from independent labels as well as some local bands from Sault Ste. Marie, CANADA and vicinity.   Plus a few listener requests.

I'm not giving away the play list yet but no matter what your musical tastes are I guarantee you will be amazed with at least one of these artists.  The line up for the show will include Fritz, 44 Fires, Que Anderson, Dennis Mullins, Railroad Steele, Kofi, Jane Silence, Boyce, Mike Olson, Rumour Den, 1:00AM Project tp name a few.....


So please, if your not busy panicking about the fact that the Mayan's have come to the end of a calendar, tune in and join me as I play music from these amazing artists.  For that matter treat it like the type of New Year's Eve event that it is and have a little party.

Date: Thursday, December 20, 2012
Time: 8:00 PM EST
