  • IPv6 with CenturyLink Fiber

    In case you want to know how to configure IPv6 using CenturyLink’s 6rd tunneling service.

    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.

    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 […]

  • Using SonarQube 5.4, Maven 3.3.9, Jenkins 2.19.1 on systems with both Java 1.7 and 1.8

    Hello folks! My team spent hours and hours beating our head against a Sonar deployment problem on Ubuntu Trusty (14.04 LTS). I thought I might share our findings so that you won’t have to! As you probably know, Trusty only makes Java Development Kit 1.7 available on the stock installation. The current stable version of […]

  • 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 […]
