  • 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 […]

  • I’m running an ethereum node

  • 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 […]

  • Bringing the VMs back online

    okay. New hypervisor hardware. Switching from xen to KVM. I took a snapshot of the xen partitions and moved them to a holding location during migration. I am now imaging these partitions to the LVM block devices: calcifer:/home/cjac# for guest in `ls /usr/src/moonunit-guests/ | grep -v -e etc | awk -F- ‘{print $1}’` ; do […]

  • This is getting serious.

    I might have to visit the HP on which I recently upgraded the iLO firmware… Maybe it would be good if the family visited Seattle. cjac@foxtrot:~$ ps auwx | grep ‘ping ad0.colliertech.o’ cjac 8411 0.0 0.0 10692 920 pts/8 S+ Apr25 0:32 ping ad0.colliertech.org cjac@foxtrot:~$ ping ad0.colliertech.org PING ad0.colliertech.org (208.115.126.68) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 […]

  • Relatively high sustained rates detected along I-405

    $ scp moonunit.colliertech.org:/mnt/downloads/sh1-disk-20140420T070034.xz . cjac@moonunit.colliertech.org’s password: sh1-disk-20140420T070034.xz 76% 534MB 11.1MB/s 00:14 ETA Come on little internet! You can do it! You can push 100Mbit! I remember when this was the fastest I could send data across my LAN. Not bad for a 20 mile shot up I-405. Sorry if I caused any congestion there, folks. […]

  • Windows is *still* loading files

    I’m moving the active directory server off of hardware on to the hypervisor. I think if I boot the drive as USB I can install the virtio disk drivers on the system. Fingers crossed! Only thing is that this first boot off of a USB device takes *sooooo* long!

  • software bridge loops suck, too

    I didn’t realize that I had two of my machines attached to openvpn from the same l2 segment. It caused a network outage for about 24 hours. Sorry for the downtime folks. I believe that if I turn on stp for all nodes which have two legs in to the same l2, I can avoid […]
