ot:FCC Official Asks Agency To Investigate Ban On Journalists' Wi-Fi Personal Hotspots At Debate

From: Rod-Lists

Yesterday, it was reported that journalists attending the presidential debate at Hofstra University were banned from using personal hotspots and were told they had to pay $200 to access the event's Wi-Fi. The journalists were reportedly offered the option to either turn off their personal hotspots or leave the debate. Cyrus Farivar via Ars Technica is now reporting that "one of the members of the Federal Communications Commission, Jessica Rosenworcel, has asked the agency to investigate the Monday evening ban." Ars Technica reports:
Earlier, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel tweeted, saying that something was "not right" with what Hofstra did. She cited an August 2015 order from the FCC, forcing a company called SmartCity to no longer engage in Wi-Fi blocking and to pay $750,000.
Ars has since updated their report with a statement from Karla Schuster, a spokeswoman for Hofstra University:
The Commission on Presidential Debates sets the criteria for services and requires that a completely separate network from the University's network be built to support the media and journalists. This is necessary due to the volume of Wi-Fi activity and the need to avoid interference. The Rate Card fee of $200 for Wi-Fi access is to help defray the costs and the charge for the service does not cover the cost of the buildout. For Wi-Fi to perform optimally the system must be tuned with each access point and antenna. When other Wi-Fi access points are placed within the environment the result is poorer service for all. To avoid unauthorized access points that could interfere, anyone who has a device that emits RF frequency must register the device. Whenever a RF-emitting device was located, the technician notified the individual to visit the RF desk located in the Hall. The CPD RF engineer would determine if the device could broadcast without interference.


Great little site to help test your email server configuration / headers

From: Lynn Dixon 
I know we have discussed proper email header and formatting before in the
past, so I figured this was relevant.

I found this little tool on the web and thought it was pretty nifty.  You
send an email to a randomly generated inbox and they give you the results.
Granted, I'd use an email account that you don't mind letting the world
have or one that you will toss after the testing is done.

Here's he URL:  https://www.mail-tester.com

And here is what the results looks like from a test:

It helped me realize I didn't have my DMARC setup properly.

Wordpress on Dockr

From: Jonathan Calloway 
Is anyone running WordPress on Dockr?  I'm looking at having a container that runs maybe MariaDB and others that run WP, and maybe some other things, like Drupal, Concrete5, etc.

I've not been formerly been introduced to Dockr yet, so go easy on me!

Anyone ever try Source Mage Linux?

From: Rod-Lists 
It is a fork of Sorcery Linux.
Source based distro. Package management is written in bash.

Apparently Sorcery came out about the same time or just before gentoo. But ran into project management issues and two forks were made, Lunar Linux and Source Mage.
