there is no such thing as magic because the ability to cross the line that blurs the reality and magic together is impossible. to use majic we have to get used to the idea of our minds and using them. noone has so there is no such thing as magic.

Stick around the hacking realm long enough, and your opinion on the subject may change. But in all seriousness, if you were referring to religious or ceremonial magic, then this is probably mis-categorized.

I got a theory. You see, like... I got a theory... about magic. And miracles.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

What a fucking joke, this guy expects us to believe Magic doesn't exist. I'll be riding away on my dragon and enchanted sword shortly, as this thread is bonkers.

Oh yeah, I'm sure we would all agree that prestidigitation is fake. You know, general magic or whatever. As far as religious magic is concerned, it's not really my place to say that isn't real. I would first have to prove that it isn't, which requires far more effort than I care to put into it, especially since I've got absolutely no desire to disprove it. I was instead referring to general "computer wizardry", people blending the lines between what is real and what isn't. I've seen my fair share of magic, in that sense. Maybe more.

Magic? Fucking magnets... 'nuff said.

Speaking of magnets and magic, here's an interesting little trick. You should try configuring lighttpd to use mod_magnet while both the server and the FastCGI backend reside in separate chroot jails. They need to communicate through hard links to named *nix sockets created by spawn_fcgi. And since they're both sitting in a separate chroot jail, there's a matter of file locations, permissions, and ownership, to resolve. Not only does it have to be resolved such that both server, and backend have access to the proper resources, but also in such a way that any intruders won't have access to them unless they can also gain root. It's easy if you place everything inside the same chroot jail, but that won't work if you later need the server on one machine, and the backend on another. Admittedly, that would also require you to switch from named sockets to TCP sockets, which should be an incredibly easy task once all the other issues are solved. But until then, it's a constant uphill battle that's riddled with 500 and 503 errors from a server that's not careful to log as thoroughly as it probably should. Even searching for solutions to the problems I encountered trying to set that up, gave me the impression that google itself was telling me that it's time to switch to NginX. But still, I've seen this type of setup actually functioning, and anybody who can pull that trick off, is magician enough for me. I'll stick with a less difficult implementation.
