in reply to McCarthyism, Open Source & PM

Bleh. Especially the part where the company is keeping track of your online activity.
I'm still annoyed at one company that I had worked for. This company used a lot of open source, but since it was modified, they didn't release anything back. Rather than rant over what I went through, I can only offer you a bit of advice. Run like hell. If the company is steadfastly refusing the benefits of Open Source, and this makes you unhappy, it's not a good enviroment for you. Stress is bad. And if the company has identified you as an Open Source advocate, there will be people who will increase your stress.

    [choroba]: In the end, I was able to upgrade Perl from 5.8.3 to 5.22 and install Net::SFTP::Foreign , at least for the task involved
    [james28909]: what would be the best way to capture that stream with perl? ffmpeg args -rtp rtp://127.0.0.1?
    [LanX]: if I was forced to talk about all security risks I encountered oO
    [james28909]: if i did that with ffmpeg, i could then listen on the port with perl right?
    [LanX]: one of my clients filtered a menu linking to Web pages according to user rights. .. but he didn't secure the access to those unlisted pages
