How Rackspace/Serverbeach and Youtube crossed paths…

Oct 03 2015

Seems like they’re digging up a lot of old stories these days… must be slow on the news front :)

The mega-popular video sharing site YouTube took fire in large part thanks to Rackspace workers pulling all-nighters to get enough servers on line.

Woah – check out this photo from the past in today’s San Antonio Express News… it must be from back in 1999!

So by 1998, when he and business partner Morris Miller sat down at Chester’s Hamburgers to hear three Trinity University students’ business pitch, he could see how server space could be as much of a real estate investment as a well-sited skyscraper.

“Their idea was pretty simple,” he said. “Rent servers to people who needed to run websites.”

Crash your buddy’s iPhone with this carefully crafted text message!

May 27 2015

Just put “رً ॣ ॣ ॣ” in a text and send to your buddy! (no quotes)

Alternatively “effective. Power لُلُصّبُلُلصّبُررً ॣ ॣh ॣ ॣ 冗” works too…

Have fun! 😀

More info about this bug here:

A bug in Apple’s iOS means that anyone can crash an iPhone by simply sending it a certain string of characters in a message.

The bug – discovered by several Reddit users – means that when the message is received it instantly crashes the iPhone and causes it to reboot, as long as the recipient is not viewing their message history at the time.

The attack appears to be caused by a glitch in the way Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, which runs on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, renders Arabic text.
