The Big Bang - that background noise of our existence - the Awesome World of Things

The prevailing theory to how the universe was made began with noise, like common radio static.
While working with the Holmdel antenna in New Jersey, the two astronomers, Robert Wilson and Arno Penzias, discovered a background noise that left them perplexed. After ruling out possible interference from urban areas, nuclear tests, or pigeons living in the antenna, Wilson and Penzias came across an explanation with Robert Dicke's theory that radiation leftover from a universe-forming big bang would now act as background cosmic radiation.
In fact, a short distance from the Holmdel antenna at Princeton University, another team lead by Dicke had been searching for this background radiation. When he heard the news of Wilson and Penzias' discovery, Dicke famously told his research partners, "we've been scooped." Penzias and Wilson would go on to receive the Nobel Prize.

easywall - Web interface for easy use of the IPTables firewall on Linux systems written in Python3.

Firewalls are becoming increasingly important in today’s world. Hackers and automated scripts are constantly trying to invade your system and use it for Bitcoin mining, botnets or other things. To prevent these attacks, you can use a firewall on your system. IPTables is the strongest firewall in Linux because it can filter packets in the kernel before they reach the application. Using IPTables is not very easy for Linux beginners. We have created easywall - the simple IPTables web interface . The focus of the software is on easy installation and use.
