dd-wrt NAT with several subnets behind

If you have a complex lab at home and you would like to setup dd-wrt routing do not forget to enable nat for all subnets, as by default dd-wrt will only take care of the one directly connected.
Here is example of my script that adds subnet to the internet nat, script also contains openvpn related commands:
iptables -I INPUT 1 -p udp --dport 1194 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD 1 --source -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -o tun0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -i tun0 -o br0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o `get_wanface` --source -j SNAT --to `nvram get wan_ipaddr`

eDiscovery in SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 is capable to perform eDiscovery on sources limited to file shares, Exchange and SharePoint. The data can be hold in-place or exported out. If you have other types of data sources, like SAP, Documentum, etc., you may want to compare with other solutions.

SharePoint 2013 apps authentication with OAuth

SharePoint 2013 provides a new method for application authentication. Despite the term authentication, it is based on OAuth 2.0 (Open Authorization). The idea is that an app can access other parts of SharePoint without asking users credentials, but using user's permissions in a frame of selected authorization that user accepts during initial app installation. The apps access requirements are build in apps manifest by the developer. Refer to technet article and this video.
