  • Maxine is now running on mariadb

    So back when I was working for MySQL AB as support manager for MaxDB, I created an IRC bot to help manage the #maxdb channel on Freenode. We didn’t get a lot of traffic, and Daniel De Graaf mentioned that he could use a bot to help manage some iptables factoids over on #netfilter. So […]

  • GSoC 2010

    Earlier this month, I applied to the Mono Project (and the University of Washington, and Ubuntu, and Debian, and The Perl Foundation) requesting a mentor to get Perl6 hosted on the DLR. Last Tuesday, Miguel contacted me and asked that I chat with Michael Hutchinson about possibly taking up a different project. It seems that […]

  • Importing darcs into a git branch

    Maybe this will make it more google-able… Looks like you can export your darcs repo with darcs-fast-export and then import it with git-fast-import 18:15 < wakko666> I have kind of an odd question that google doesn’t seem to know. I’m converting a darcs repo to a git repo. i’ve already got the tool to export […]

  • IronRuby on OS X

To my knowledge, this is the first package in Debian with direct and active upstream support from Microsoft. Kudos for this release go to Jo […]

  • Locale configuration post-Intrepid

    I was reminded this morning after a bit of chatter on #debian-cli that my previous write-up on setting one’s locale on Ubuntu is out-of-date. Instead of running dpkg-reconfigure locales and selecting your locale, the new incantation is as follows: Magic $ sudo locale-gen en_US.UTF-8 Environment Variables You’ll also want to set some environment variables. Put […]

  • Connecting to MySQL with ODBC on Mono

    We had a visitor on #mono today who needed help with his homework. It seems that Reggie is happy to have forgotten everything about using ODBC to connect to MySQL. I was curious and feeling helpful, so I figured it out. Install the MySQL ODBC driver $ sudo apt-get install libmyodbc You can also grab […]

  • AoE root for KVM guests

    Intro So. I’m trying to get familiar with libvirt and friends. To this end, I’ve set up a Lucid virtual machine booting from PXE into an initrd environment which does a pivot_root to an AoE block device. The #virt channel on irc.oftc.net told me that in order to have libvirt provide PXE capability, I would […]
