I’ve gotten vehicles stuck before (986 w/2 wagons cutting across a soft spot, Dakota hung up on snow, ATV high centered on the frame, ATC in a creek bottom), but nothing like this or this.
Yes, it’s 6:15am CST. And yes, I’m awake, time to go deal with the power outage.
Yum, deep fried sandwich. According to my wife, I exhibit similar buying habits. I’m not sure if my Dad is to blame or not though.
And I guess I should note that, in general, this holiday seasons’ buying experience isn’t any better than last years. Also apropos to that post, this year I get the joyous gift of a 2 day power outage for the building that has our primary server room. Yay!
The student sites are now NT4 free! I reinstalled the last NT4 BDC with Windows 2003 Server today. I also moved the FSMO roles off the upgraded DC to a clean install server, so next up is to demote the upgraded DC and then reformat and reinstall it.
After that is the upgrade for the admin domain, but that involves an Exchange 5.5 server, so much more testing will be needed before we even start thinking about actually doing that.
Tired of reading iptables looking for bad packets? Wish all that confusing mumbo-jumbo was just a table in a database? Well, today folks, you are in luck, twice over!
If you just want to read the syslog output with a “tail –follow” (and deal with the cpu overhead), then the IPTables Log Analyzer is for you. The php web interface is quite nice and the database structure isn’t bad, but reading the log continuously might not scale well if you have lots of bad packets to log.
The more whiz-bang, bells and whistles loaded method is to use the ULOG target in iptables rules and ulogd and it’s associated plugins to log to MySQL. The lacking part here is a nice web interface. Maybe I can adapt the other interface to use this database layout.
This has applications in both jobs. One has a public side firewall that cries out for better log analysis, the other has boxes running portsentry as an early warning system for infected machines scanning hosts, primarily Windows ports.
Update: I’m reinventing the wheel for no reason, see Webfwlog
Looks like retiring congressman Billy Tauzin got a job with the industry he used to regulate. What an odd occurance. I bet nobody else does this.
I think these photos show pretty clearly why $5 powerstrips are best left at the store. Please, for the safety of your house, buy a brand name. (I prefer APC.)
I wonder if my balljoints were made “at a plant in Indiana“.
Campus Poker Club, and a nice letter from UI Legal shooting down their tourney.
