Found 2 set WordPress plugins recently and have them in use on all the sites I manage / setup!
WP SlimStat – A powerful real-time web analytics plugin for WordPress.
Better WP Security – Better WP Security takes the best WordPress security features and techniques and combines them in a single plugin thereby ensuring that as many security holes as possible are patched without having to worry about conflicting features or the possibility of missing anything on your site. (WARNING: Some settings can and will break the site! If you don’t understand it, then do NOT enable it!)
Another great find in the world of WordPress is the new DMS by PageLines! I haven’t got to use it yet, but makes total sense for someone that doesn’t like to edit CSS files directly. I set it up on a customers new site so they can learn it and setup there site.
I have hunted for a long time and surfed through a LOT of posts without luck. This issue is hit and miss and will disappear or be there forever on an OS. Today was my lucky day and I found the following information from http://shoemakerbrian.wordpress.com/tag/windows-xp-sp3-svchost-exe-100-cpu-usage/. I just used this on a freshly reloaded Windows XP SP3 machine that had this issue and the problem went away allowing me to finish patching the machine.
Reset the Automatic Updates System – Windows XP SP3
Open a command prompt: Start | Run | cmd /Enter
net stop “Automatic Updates” – ENTER
del /f /s /q %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\*.* – ENTER
net start “Automatic Updates” – ENTER
wuauclt.exe /detectnow – ENTER
What this does is: Stops the Automatic Update service then flushes the content of the folder “SoftwareDistrubution”; it then starts the Automatic Update service and then forces an update cycle to start.
Reasons to run this is: The svchost.exe file running at 100% CPU usage or slightly less but crippling the computer system never the less.
Diagnoses: Open command prompt type: “tasklist /svc” this will list all running tasks. Open Task Manager and view which PID/svchost.exe is running at 100% or slightly less.
If you do not see PID in Task Manager window: open the View menu inside Task Manager and select “Select Columns…” option and place a check mark in the “PID (Process Identifier)”
Mostly tossing this up here for my own use in referring back. Below is what needs done to ensure afacli can be ran correctly from script after a reboot. The issue is the PERC 3/Di card software for CentOS/Fedora Linux doesn’t rebuild the /dev/ files correctly and so when we run an internal raid check script it errors out with the following output:
/usr/sbin/afacli: line 13: /dev/MAKEDEV.afa: No such file or directory
The solution to this is to first run
which will give you the Device ID for the “aac” (PERC 3/Di). Example:
Next you want to add the following line(s) into /etc/rc.local (as many times as needed, so in my case with 7 errors I need to have afa0-afa6):
/bin/mknod /dev/afa0 c DEVICE_ID 0
Last year, CISPA (then H.R. 3261 aka SOPA) sought to create powerful new protections for companies who wanted to sidestep privacy law in order to share sensitive user information with the government without judicial oversight. CISPA may also result in more sharing to the National Security Agency, which the Libertarian Party and civil liberties groups like the ACLU and EFF oppose.
Please see the following links and take time to contact your
Representative in the HouseSenators about why we must stand together and vote AGAINST H.R. 624(CISPA – Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act).
Below are a few links that provide some more information on this bill:

Together with Ben Backus I am working to form the Western Nebraska Libertarian Party. See below:
“The Western Nebraska Libertarian Party (WNLP) was created to give Libertarians in the panhandle of Nebraska a way to connect and organize. Currently WNLP serves as a way for people from the individual counties to pool their resources until they have enough members to create Libertarian Party organizations within their own counties. If you would like to become a member of WNLP or better yet start your own county party, check out the “about us” and “contact us” information above. Live and let live!”
