thunderbird command error 12

If Thunderbird chowws “…command error 12”

mail.server.default.send_client_info

by default it is TRUE. toggling it to FALSE will stop tbird from sending the “ID command”. The error seems to be happening with some servers that _claim_ to support that command but return an error when it is used.

proxychains via reverse socks proxy

1. Start local socks proxy:
Connect to localhost via SSH and open SOCKS proxy on port 54321.

ssh -f -N -D 54321 localhost

-f runs SSH in the background.

2. connect to server and setup reverse port forwarding
Bind remote port 6666 to local port 54321. This makes your local socks proxy available to the remote site on port 6666.

ssh root@server -R6666:localhost:54321

3. configure the server software to use the forwarded proxy
I found that installing proxychains makes things a lot easier. Its a tool that uses an LD_PRELOAD trick to wrap TCP and DNS requests from arbitrary commands into a proxy.

This is optional – you may also configure yum or whatever to use the socks proxy, when supported. However, proxychains is really cool because it enables any software to use SOCKS proxy, even those without proxy support. (telnet for example)

Setup /etc/proxychains.conf to use the forwarded socks proxy:

[ProxyList]
# SSH reverse proxy
socks5 127.0.0.1 6666

Tunnel arbitrary tools (that use TCP) with proxychains:

$ proxychains telnet google.com 80
$ proxychains yum update
$ proxychains apt-get update

Nike plus sound volume

Here is what I did in order to restore sound volume in Nike+ app:
1) go to the menu->settings->Auto voice feedback
2)pressed “preview voice over” and quickly, during preview sound, pressed volume+ button of the iPhone.

Read-only user in postgres

  1. Connect as admin
  2. create user:
    CREATE USER 'uuu' PASSWORD 'ppp'
  3. switch to necessary db (if not already):
    \connect ddd
  4. add rights:
    GRANT CONNECT ON DATABASE ddd TO uuu;
    GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA public TO uuu;
    GRANT SELECT ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA public TO uuu;

This only affects tables that have already been created. More powerfully, you can automatically have default roles assigned to new objects in future:

ALTER DEFAULT PRIVILEGES IN SCHEMA public GRANT SELECT ON TABLES TO uuu;
