ISA Server can block cross site scripting by inspecting the HTTP requests and identifying commands and tags that are common in server responses but are not common in client requests. For example, you can expect a server to run a command in response to a client request. However, that same command in a client request may be suspect, and could be the result of the client unintentionally running code that is hidden in a Web page. By blocking requests containing those commands and tags, the attack can be stopped.Continuing the example of using in a posting, would be a valid tag for a server response, but not for client requests. By adding a signature to detect in the requests passing through ISA Server, the attack will be blocked. Read more here
Well, i called my ISP and shortly after 30 min being on hold i got to talk to a worker. The conversation went as follows:(O-me, TS-TechSup)
TS:: Uhm….what’s the number of the error?
O:: You see, there are different errors on different pages, when i check the error console, it gives many various errors.
TS:: Ah, ok, please open your Internet Explorer….
O:: I don’t use IE i use Firefox
TS:: Ohhh…hold on a second then…..
(waiting on the phone for 10 min)
TS:: Hey, are you there?
TS:: Ok, the problem is solved, you just have to install JAVA tm!!!
TS:: Can you give me a link to see the number of the error you are getting?
O:: Nope, i can’t give you the link of the sites i’m currently working on….
TS:: Ahhh, you’re a web designer
O:: That’s right (duhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!)
TS:: Well, i think it’s a problem with your computer, you should check it.
O:: Nope, there’s no problem with my computer, since i have other computers in the house and when i connect via other computers i get same problems. There’s no way that each pc i have is configured in a wrong way.
TS:: Well, i can give you a phone # of the local hardware company so that they can check it.
O:: ????? I don’t need a hardware company, my problem is not hardware.
TS:: Uhm….hold on a sec
(another 10 min go by)
TS:: You there?
TS:: You see, you’re the only person that contacted us about this problem, so we can’t really help you
O:: Ok, can you check Yahoo for example and see if it will work ok on your computer at least?
TS:: We don’t have that kind of thing.
O:: ????????????? What kind of thing – Yahoo?
TS:: Yes madam.
O:: Do you know what Yahoo is?
TS:: Yes but we don’t get any popups with errors from it.
TS:: I can give you the number so that you can check your hardware.
O:: No, thanks i guess we’re done here……good bye.
I guess if i redirected them to the link about .js blocking mentioned above, it would be too challenging….
I got adsense recently. Sometimes it comes up with funny stuff which is not related at all to your site, everyone knows that. But, thanks to adsense, i saw this link and had lots of fun. Here are some quotes from the new christian bestseller:
The Prophesied End-Time will challenge readers as they consider catastrophic end-time events that are prophesied to begin very soon. Although many will not take seriously what is written here, they will gradually experience disbelief as the events covered in this book begin to unfold.
dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb ….
Unlike The Da Vinci Code or the Left Behind series, which are fiction, 2008-God’s Final Witness is true and reveals hidden secrets that man has not been able to uncover for thousands of years. Of the three major religions of the world who claim belief in the God of Abraham (Islam, Judaism and Christianity), no one has ever known the prophecies that are revealed in this book, which are beginning to unfold even now.
Poor dude took The Da Vinci Code as a prophecy, so sad…someone said that a man is a symbolic creature – unfortunately some of us don’t realize that. I guess The Da Vinci Code was a big revelation of heresy to the dude, the one he’s never heard of before. Sad.
I’m not going to go on about this matter, since it’s nothing new, i will just say that Idiocracy was a good (and much more prophetic) movie , and no wonder Ronald Weinland doesn’t have a comments-enabled sites.
I know it’s old but it’s still very funny. We’ve been re-watching Da Ali G show for the last couple of weeks and i just couldn’t resist posting this part.

"Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. Suffering follows an evil thought as the wheels of a cart follow the oxen that draws it. Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves." - The Buddha
