New section for English-reading visitors

Hi, my name is Arturo Busleiman, but most people in the community call me Buanzo. I am and old-school gnu+linux user that enjoys programming (mostly C and PHP), writing (technical and literature) and guitar playing. I've had the pleasure of meeting Richard Stallman, Maddog Hall, Roger Dingledine (of the TOR project) and Vinton Cerf (Who, after getting to know what I've done said 'you are the perfect example of why I wanted to create all this' (IPv4 -> internet) - This last comment made me quite proud.

I have a 3+ year son, called Damian Ezequiel Busleiman Negri, who was nicknamed Debian by the Argentinian FOSS community. You can check one nice picture HERE or a quite-old (pre 1y) gallery HERE.

Among the stuff I've done for the FOSS movement are contributions to Nmap, Audacity, Samba-vscan, and MPRL, which has recently been included in SourceMage GNU/Linux.

To tell you the truth, what I enjoy the most is Security: I've contributed to SANS' TOP-20 2004 and 2005, took part in the forming of OISSG, and my rootkits article has been featured all over the Internet (I still don't know why!), and as I work for no company, the only security event I've been invited to was Bolivia's International Hacker Convention, where I gave a speech regarding Covert Channels.

Oh, well, one more thing: I'm working on a multiplatform frontend for Gentoo GNU/Linux's package-management system (Portage). You can check out the page at

I will be updating this page, so keep coming.

Multi-Protocol Remote Login 0.3.0

MPRL is, let's say, a 'login' utility, as it is configured through mingetty's --login parameter , or similar. MPRL gets and analyzes what the user types at the login: prompt, then it performs a remote or local login request. It syntax follows the [protocol:]user[@host][:port] fashion. These are valid 'logins':

  • buanzo - Normal local login: /bin/login gets called.
  • - SSH protocol by default: /usr/bin/ssh gets called

Feel free to drop by the project's Freshmeat page.

Of course, you can just download the tarball from here.

English-language authors I've known recently

I've been reading Enchantress from the Stars by Sylvia Engdahl. I recommend that you visit her site and check out the FAQ section, as she was an early assembly programmer! Excellent writer, too ;)
