This is not a post of original content, I'm simply linking to interesting things I've read recently.
- Israel: Linux-IL mailing list is inspecting some weird phenomenon. Looks like 012 ISP is blocking SSH packets which are sent abroad.
- Hebrew: this feature is too hidden.. Diego explains that how to enable left/right alignment switching by ctrl+shift. (Useful for RTL languages). The "trick" works for QT, KDE (3+4) apps.

I was surprised to read about the "spam revolution" that's about to happen on November 2008.
In short, sending spam without recipient permissions would:
- Be illegal, with a 60,000-200,000 NIS fine.
- Each recipient will be able to sue the spammer and get up to 1000 NIS, without the need to proof that any damage was made.
More about it (Hebrew):
Sounds great, eh?
