  • IPv6 with CenturyLink Fiber

    In case you want to know how to configure IPv6 using CenturyLink’s 6rd tunneling service. There are four files to update with my script: /etc/radvd.conf.header /etc/default/centurylink-6rd /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/centurylink-6rd /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/centurylink-6rd There are a couple of environment variables in /etc/default/centurylink-6rd that you will want to set.

  • State of the racks, 20221231

    Hi friends! I haven’t written in a while. I’ve been caught up in work. But between working, I’ve put together some new equipment in a couple of new racks. I bought an audio dampened 15U rack a couple of years ago or so, and into it I’ve placed the RAID array and an HP desktop […]

  • Rack coming together

    I now have four six-port Qotom systems and one four-port Qotom system in my rack. I have successfully verified that the newest of these is capable of pulling about 745Mbit/s of 1500-byte frames through the switch from six other hosts.

  • Recovering videos from DV tapes with Canon ZR80

    I am recovering some tapes from back in the day that some of you may enjoy. Here is a log of the process so that maybe you can recover some of your own DV tapes. Seems to work well in modern Debian. To attach to the camcorder, I used a PCI-e card that has an […]

  • The woes of 520-byte sectors

    A couple years ago, I bought a 12G/s SAS disk to see if I could get it to work with the RAID controller with external SFF-8088 ports which came with the system I got while I was working at The Linux Foundation. I got an enclosure to go with it because I was enthusiastic and […]

  • Some work on a VyOS image with Let’s Encrypt certs

    I put some packages together this weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve debuilt anything officially. libffi-platypus-perl libalien-base-perl libalien-ffi-perl libffi-checklib-perl libshell-config-generate-perl libshell-guess-perl The plan is to build a binding to the libgnutls.so.30 API. The certtool CSR (REQ) generation interface does not allow me to create a CRL with “not critical” attributes set on purposes. Maybe […]

  • Regarding fdupes

    Dear readers, There is a very useful tool for finding and merging shared permanent storage, and its name is fdupes. There was a terrible occurrence in the software after version 1.51, however. They removed the -L argument because too many people were complaining about lost data. It sounds like user error to me, and so […]
