Got this error in Flex?

In an interesting little mathematical exercise, Zach Pace from the team implementing the new picture sign-in for Windows 8 says that on a phone with a 4-digit pin, 4 unique digits is the most secure against a smudge attack. I contend that he is wrong, and that 3 unique digits would be more secure.

Update: Please checkout my new and improved (incidentally how can something be new and improved? Either it's new, or it's improved, in which case it's not new) article Install Redis as Service on Centos 6, which is a better guide.

The documentation on printing in Flex is pretty sparse. There are some unrealistically simple examples and no treatment of real printing situations, apart from an interesting article (in the Flex 4.5 doco in this case) called using a print-specific output format. It would be great to see more comprehensive examples along this line involving other objects. For example, what about printing charts?

I encountered a few obstacles getting it going on my new Jenkins installation.

What is a Distributed Denial of Service Attack (DDoS)? Imagine you work in the shoe section of a department store called “Harold’s”. People come to you to ask advice about shoes and try them on, and if they like them they go off to the cash register and buy them. In an IT sense you’re a “server” that might normally “serve” web pages to people surfing the internet.

I'm helping some people out with their horse floats business in Australia. The site is based on the webs.com platform which allows a novice user to create a relatively nice site, but presents its set of challenges.
