  • Vacation Tasks

    So, I’m taking vacation this week and next. Here’s a (partial) list of tasks that are left to do: Visit BC for NANOG 55 Work with Threshold Communications to verify interop is working as well as it seems to be Make sure the UTC has acknowledged receipt of our 2012 filing Complete move of storage […]

  • NIST::NVD CWE development – follow along

    I’m in the process of getting the tests passing for the 0.03 release of NIST::NVD::Store::SQLite3 wherein our hero imports the CWE data and cross-indexes it with CVEs and CPEs. Follow along and suggest some patches. I’m developing on Debian Wheezy, but I would very much like input from devs on other platforms. http://git.colliertech.org/?p=NIST-NVD-Store-SQLite3.git;a=summary cjac@foxtrot:/tmp$ time […]

  • SOPA response from Representative Rick Larsen, WA 2nd District

    Below is an email I received from Representative Rick Larsen‘s office. I don’t recall ever having identifying myself as PVT Adams-Collier in any communications with his office, though I could have done so at some point. Maybe. I also don’t recall contacting his office directly concerning SOPA. I blogged a few things and mentioned him […]

  • I was going to write an opinion article….

    But then I thought better of the idea. Anyone who still takes bn seriously after the recent terrorist actions is likely not going to be swayed by facts, proof of their hypocrisy, their total lack of participation in the community and failure to engage with campaigns they claim to support. Rather than taking the time […]

  • Is Boycott Novell interested in fixing the problem?

    Roy, Would you like to work with me to fix the US patent system? I sure would like it if you’d stop saying mean things about the most active and effective Free Software developers I know. If we have to fix the broken patent system in order for you to stop giving F/OSS a black […]

  • boycottnovell.com not interested in solving problems

    But don’t take my word for it. The folks on their IRC channel have put it pretty plainly themselves. They’re not interested in offering solutions to problems, they instead seem interested in bemoaning their lot in life for fun and profit. — Log opened Wed Sep 03 23:06:26 2008 23:06 -!- Irssi: #boycottnovell: Total of […]

  • Back online…

    Sorry for the outage, folks. We’re back up now. This time with a firewall. Ain’t that fun? Someone broke in to the machine in February and was using the un-throttled bandwidth to spam the world. I’ve added a throttle and firewall, much stricter access to the internal network, monitoring tools and an alert infrastructure. Hopefully […]

  • ad blocking

    add “*click*” to your adblock filter list. You’ll be happier. Really. spammers suck.

  • Oh noes! Guitar Hero is trying to get me!

    So. One of my policies has been “don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it.” I made an exception to this rule and privately knocked Guitar Hero. I want to apologize now for this misdeed. Maybe if I apologize, the ads for it will stop. Oh, please. Also, someone play it with me, so I can […]

  • DNS changes

    I’m working on the family’s servers over vacation. I’m moving a bunch of the bandwidth-consuming bits off of the server on the T1. One of the services I’m moving to its own VM is bind9. I figure it should live on its own box that does only DNS-ish stuff. That way I can make sure […]
