Biferno is a new generation, Cross Platform Web Scripting Language that allows developers the rapid implementation of dynamic Web applications and of Web sites that offer a high degree of user interactivity.
Biferno is an Open Source Project distributed under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE, its current version is 1.2.0.
So what's wrong with PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby (on Rails)? Why develop yet another (web) scripting language, especially one which looks like an exact PHP clone? Can anyone enlighten me why they're doing it and what they see as advantages over other languages?
I have updated my iptables scripts again.
This time fw_laptop got support for limiting logging in case of flooding, blocking of known-bad IP addresses (e.g. from DShield.org), optional blocking of certain outbound ports (e.g. X11 server, VNC, NFS etc.), and a few minor tweaks...
Thanks to Ryan Giobbi for several hints and comments. Further comments and suggestions are welcome!
I have updated my iptables scripts today, mostly minor improvements and documentation updates in fw_laptop. I also added a new script called fw_blockall, which literally blocks everything (incoming, outgoing, and forwarded packets, packet from/to localhost, pings). This might be useful sometimes.
Any comments and suggestions for improvements are highly welcome!
