The following pictures were taken with the same lens (f1.8, 50mm Canon) with a polarising filter at different angles. There’s not much more to say about this as the effect is immediately visible.
I made a web thing that will tell you about people looking at your profile. Go look at it.
With the recent dictionary attacks on WordPress, I installed a simple configuration for fail2ban that requires no access to the backend of each site you host. This should protect all the sites on a server from being attacked by the massive botnet that’s doing the rounds.
Add this to
[apache-wp-login] enabled = true port = http,https action = iptables[name=WP, port=http, protocol=tcp] filter = apache-wp-login logpath = /var/www/vhosts/*/statistics/logs/access_log maxretry = 3
The logpath should include every access log on your server, or at least the WordPress ones. Mine is ideal for Plesk installs on Linux.
Add this to
# Fail2Ban configuration file [Definition] failregex = <HOST>.*] "POST /wp-login.php ignoreregex =
Restart fail2ban and you’re set.

So no, you’ve not missed much.
ps. Blame autocorrect for the possessive apostrophe. Oh we’ll.
