Shellshocked: Some Bash #Vuln Useful Links

Last week, I was “literally” fooling around with the bash bug by reposting 9gag images about it 🙂

and mashing it up with old movie flicks:

but by the end of the week things are getting a little bit serious as my colleagues found some live malicious files in the wild

As part of the usual sharing of good tech info to my blog readers and friend and as part of public service of a responsible netizen, here are some cool links about this vulnerability:

New Look: Hello Gamepress! Thank you Easel!

Its been ages since I updated the WordPress theme of my blog. So I tinkered around and liked this new theme from WebTuts called Gamepress. I love the gaming and techie feel of this theme so I am trying it out for the next couple of days.

 

hello-gamepress

I’m not yet 100% decided but as of today I am comfortable with the theme.

For now my dear friends and readers, feel free to let me know if you like the new menardconnect.com-look too or you like the old theme, and give the reason why. You can leave comments at the end of this post or ping me via twitter or leave a via my contact page.

If you find something missing or some old feature broken please feel free contact me too and I will try my best to look into it.

Lastly, my thanks to Philip M. Hofer  of Frumph.net for the wonderful Easel Theme.

Hearthstone Deck Cheats: Free Shaman Deck

My Hearthstone Hunter Deck and Hearthstone Paladin Deck is getting some traction so I am sharing another of my favorite Hearthstone Deck here in menardconnect.com.

Like my previous posts on Hearthstone Deck Hunter and Hearthstone Deck Paladin, thisHearthstone Deck for Shaman is a free Hearthstone deck as all the cards used are all basic cards. This free Hearthstone Deck is ideal for starting players who like playing Hearthstone Shammys and does not have any Hearthstone Golds to boot.

hearthstone-all-basic-shammy

2 x [0]Ancestral Healing
2 x [1] Rockbiter Weapon
2 x [1]Voodoo Doctor
2 x [2]Acidic Swamp Ooze
2 x [2]Flametongue Totem
2 x [3]Hex
2 x [3]Razorfen Hunter
2 x [3]Shattered Sun Cleric
2 x [4]Chillwind Yeti
2 x [4]Sen’jin Shieldmasta
2 x [4]Windspeaker
2 x [5]Bloodlust
2 x [5] Frostwolf Warlord
2 x [6]Fire Elemental
2 x [7]Stormwind Champion

Note: the number inside [x] is the mana cost (I find this notation useful when looking for the cards in the players collection)

This Shaman Hearthstone Deck mana curve will look like this:

This Hearthstone shaman deck is a mix of minions and shaman skills.
The gameplay for this deck is to survive the early game and do massive damage mid or end game. Strategy is to try putting down many minions (low cost) and buffing them with totems. Keeping the minions alive for a long time will be the key move and when the player have many minions on the board, drop the killer shaman trademark move, Bloodlust.

This Shaman Hearthstone deck gave me good numbers wins in play mode and ranked mode without having me spending any Hearthstone gold. Cool huh! Hope you like my Free Hearthstone Deck for Shaman post.

Twitter Analytics Online

Twitter launched some cool features last week.

Going to analytics.twitter.com will give you great metrics about your tweets and your followers.
For followers stats, it shows data about your followers interests (Top Interests and Most Unique Interests), location, gender and list tweeps your followers also follow.

menardconnect-twitter-analytics

For the tweets metrics, it highlights your tweets impressions and engagement data. Good visualization given the data is free.

menardconnect-twitter-analytics-tweets-

For the followers stats, I believe it’s already there as you check it out, but for the tweets metrics, you need to somewhat enable it (or login once into the analytics page) to start the population of data.

We might argue that these are geeky data points, but my personal take here is that in this interconnected world of social media this is good and interesting data (and quite possibly profitable too *hint* *hint*) .

No security issues so far but I will try to update this post (and my soon to be re-launched tech blog) if I find something new.
