  • 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 […]

  • Some statistics from the router at the cabin

    sip0 is a GRE tunnel between the router and the colo box in Seattle, the payload of which is encapsulated as ipsec traffic before being transmitted over the Ubiquity equipment to the switch that the CenturyLink DSL modem attaches to. I don’t get centurylink easter eggs in my search results when I use this interface. […]

  • Trip Report: UW signing-party

    Dear Debian Users, I met last night with a friend from many years ago and a number of students of cryptography. I was disappointed to see the prevalence of black hat, anti-government hackers at the event. I was hoping that civilized humanity had come to agree that using cryptography for deception, harm to others and […]

  • gcc CLI front- and back-ends in svn

    Look ma! gcc is preparing to play nice with ECMA-335! http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/cli.html I should really read more about it… my computer is compiling the branch right now while I work. The bit I’m most excited about is the potential to call into c++ libraries. Do the libraries all need to be compiled to IL, or can […]

  • Producing relocatable packages with the GNU build system

    I’ve recently found a need to create relocatable versions of some of my favorite libraries (produced, not-so-coincidentally by the GNU build system). You might find yourself asking “What is relocatable software, and why should I care?” Maybe I can help. A piece of software is said to be “relocatable” when it does not rely on […]

  • Invested in CTXS

    I just had my first vesting in work stocks. I sold a few and re-invested some of the proceeds in Citrix, who plans to purchase XenSource, the employer of Keir Fraser, Tim Deegan, James Bulpin and Ian Campbell, the primary contributors to the development branch of the xen source tree for the last month, and […]

  • Edgy

    Edgy’s working well for me now that I stopped attempting to get beryl & xgl working. It’s not production ready yet, folks :)

  • My former CEO answers questions on Slashdot

    It was my pleasure to work with MÃ¥rten Mickos, CEO of MySQL for about a year during 2005 and 2006. I was astounded by how involved he is with the employees and how well he keeps abreast of the goings-on in the company. He seems to be of the rare set who are not only […]

  • Monocast 1.0

    Sorry for the delay in this production. It was mostly my fault. We just about had it one night, but then I forgot my headset at work. I’m such a dork. So. With no further ado, RevFry’s MonoCast Subscribe: MonoCast AAC MonoCast MP3 MonoCast OGG
