  • Told you I could make it work.

  • NIST::NVD::Store::SQLite3

    I published an SQLite3 storage back-end to NIST::NVD on the CPAN. It’s pretty quick. About as fast as the DB_File one, but without the down side of being tied to DB_File. It shouldn’t be too difficult to re-factor this code to any DBI-based database. MariaDB anyone? I know it works on Debian. The nightly CPAN […]

  • SELinux on Wheezy

    So, Collier Technologies LLC needs to pass annual audits to operate a certification authority recognized by the SoS. To this end, I’m working with the fine group of developers who maintain SELinux. It seems that the configuration of Xorg that I’m using while typing this here blog post does not have a policy set up […]

  • SOPA response from Representative Rick Larsen, WA 2nd District

    Below is an email I received from Representative Rick Larsen‘s office. I don’t recall ever having identifying myself as PVT Adams-Collier in any communications with his office, though I could have done so at some point. Maybe. I also don’t recall contacting his office directly concerning SOPA. I blogged a few things and mentioned him […]

    There’s a script down there vvvvv and up there ^^^

  • Perl interface to processing / querying NIST’s NVD feed

    For a work project, I wrote a library in perl that can be used to query the NVD feed that NIST publishes here: http://nvd.nist.gov/download.cfm Here’s a snippit from the perldoc: use NIST::NVD::Query; # use convert_nvdcve to generate these files from the XML dumps at # http://nvd.nist.gov/download.cfm my( $path_to_db, $path_to_idx_cpe ) = @ARGV; my $q = […]

  • Bitcoin WoT using PGP/SKS

    There was recently a post to the sks list prompting discussion regarding the use of PGP and SKS as a distributed web of trust for an alternative currency system called “Bitcoin.” This reminds me of a project I worked on in the early ’00s with the late Jeff Fairhall and Thomas Greco. Anyhow, I mumbled […]

  • SJCARS blog

    The San Juan County Amateur Radio Society (SJCARS) has created a blog. I’m excited. http://sjcars.wordpress.com/

  • Rokey-Tobu

    This maneuver consisted of holding someone’s hand and patting it while assuring them that someone who has experience responding to emergencies would be there soon.

  • RCW 26.04

    I would prefer that Chapter 26.04 RCW considered anything conforming to the definition of “Domestic Partnership” in SB 5688 qualified as a “Marriage”, but the fact that SB 5688 exists is enough to for Hannah and I to complete a “Marriage License” and formalize our arrangement with the state. We should throw a party or […]
