SLAMPP Showcase

It always feels good when someone comes to you and says that he actually finds your work useful and likes it. It’s not because you ask them for the appreciation but it’s more like that you realize that what you do has contributed something valuable to others. That is what I am going to share with you right now, a SLAMPP showcase written by a SLAMPP user. Of course through this entry I would encourage other users to share their own stories on what they have done with SLAMPP and what they think about it. I will publish your stories here.

This showcase was actually written and submitted to me last year by Brian Papile from Texas. Although he already gave me the permission, unfortunately, I was not able to publish it in a timely manner. My apologies for that. FYI, Brian used SLAMPP as training material for his web application security class. I was absolutely amazed that he could master and customize SLAMPP within a short period of time and then finally shared the work to his class. Well done!

Please read his full story by downloading this PDF file. I hope it could inspire other users to do the same.

As last note, if you are interested to get a copy of his work, please contact me.

Thanks all for your contribution to SLAMPP. Much appreciated.

Now, I will focus on the next release which has been delayed for a while. 🙂

Interesting Links

In the last few months I’ve gathered some links that may trigger your interest. Most of them are IT and FOSS related and only one is from Oil and Gas sector. Yes, it is sometimes hard to share Oil and Gas resources because of the closed and competitive nature of the business and copyrights/trademarks or other Intellectual Property Rights issues. And I don’t want to get in trouble by doing that for sure. 🙂 I hope you will get some benefits from the following links.

Running Your Own Random Quotation

Perhaps you ever tried the Random Hadith Quotation, the free service I provide through this website, and you are kind of interested to run it by yourself so that you can have full control on the content. Since I started it in October 2004, I received so many e-mails asking whether the scripts is available for public or the content can be edited or changing the way it looks, etc. Hopefully all the questions will be answered through this entry. Now, I would like to share with you the base script I use for that service.

Basically I am using the existing the script available on the net and customize it in the way I want. You can, of course, make your own script if you want to. But, I assume, you all will agree with me. Why reinventing the wheel, if the solution is already there, ready to use. What really matters me (and us) is the idea behind the service. It is certainly priceless and worth more than just a script. Right? In case you think that nobody would pay intention to what you do with the script. Believe me! I started the Random Hadith Quotation service with single user which is me. No expectation at all at that time. As time goes by, the service began to gain its popularity, published in many forums or websites and now has many active users. As long as you provide something which may be useful for someone else, soon or late, it is going to be successful project.

OK, without further due, please download the base script here, provided by Starsol Scripts. After downloading it, read and follow the installation instructions and your random quotation is set up. The usage is beyond the sky. Do whatever you want and please share it to others.
