Fengg – A More Secure Internet Connection for Your Home

photo_small The internet has ushered in a new era, and in too many ways to count, it has made our lives smoother, easier, and more modern.

While we go on using all of our smart devices – our phones, our tablets, our laptops, our smart appliances – they remain open to bad actors. Some standard routers are so ineff []

For e.g. the unicorn web worker a memory-killer script exists which should prevent running into Madland. So I thought I take an example and do a similar thing for the sidekiq workers. If you give them time and send a graceful kill signal there shouldn't be any data-loss either. #!/bin/bash # check if script is []
