Speedy NMAP scans
Nmap (http://www.insecure.org/nmap) is the most popular network scanner widely used and misused. Most people tend to ignore the various “switches (options)” and only use the default parameters. It is possible to prioritize SPEED or STEALTH in nmap scans but i’ll mainly be talking about maximizing SPEED.

Zope in Nepali Market

Linux and NetBSD
The two operating systems are generally very similar, but they have some important differences:
Linux behaves more like System V UNIX, while NetBSD is more similar to the Berkeley flavors of UNIX. From an end user perspective, Linux tends to support more and newer hardware, and tends to have a larger share of users. NetBSD tends to support less new hardware, but its support for existing hardware is always very solid. Linux comes in several
distributions from different groups such as RedHat, Debian, Caldera, and Slackware, whereas NetBSD has only one distribution. Continue reading Linux and NetBSD
