Pythons

Ever thought about studying a bit of programming? Thought it was a too daunting task?

I’ve just gone through the second lesson on learnstreet and it’s quite fun! It doesn’t take long to go through the first two lessons, so if you don’t have much time you can spend a few minutes each day going to the next exercise or lesson.

Only other language I’ve studied is C++ back in high school – it did not sit so well with me back then.

Since then I’ve made acquaintance with Ruby, Python and Perl, but never made it too far away from bash.

Why start with Python then? I’ve seen announcements of vulnerabilities for Ruby lately, Perl isn’t on learnstreet and Python is used in some scripts at work.

IPv6

Do you have IPv6 connectivity? Perhaps a server and a domain name already set up?

Some things you get to play with:

  • check if you can view the page in IPv6
  • send an e-mail over IPv6
  • rDNS over IPv6

Quite fun way of learning about IPv6
