  • Configuring voice service on a Cisco 2801 Integrated Services Router via Asterisk

    So I’ve configured voice service a number of times, but never using Cisco equipment. There’s a business starting up here on Orcas Island and they need a number of lines voice and fax service. I had a spare 2801 router laying around and heard that it’s possible to provision voice service using these machines. So […]

  • I just realized how old these name servers are

    I guess I’ve had them around for a while… Maybe I should clean these up… cjac@ns1:~$ ls /lib/modules/ 2.6.18-4-xen-amd64colliertech.fw+0 2.6.32-5-amd64 2.6.24-19-xen 3.2.0-4-amd64 cjac@ns2:~$ ls /lib/modules/ 2.6.18-4-xen-amd64colliertech.fw+0 2.6.24-19-xen 2.6.32-5-amd64 cjac@ns2:~$ sudo rsync -aue ssh ns1:/lib/modules/`uname -r` /lib/modules I remember editing the .config file for that kernel and building it on my first ever 64-bit system back […]

  • Debian on PowerPC successful

    The NVidia card being unable to drive two monitors is a little annoying, and the lack of support for skype and chrome is a bother, but I think I can build chrome… There’ll probably be no flash, I imagine.

  • In case you were curious

    It doesn’t look like the Debian PowerPC bootloader, yaboot can deal with the root filesystem on an lvm on a raid. *sigh* There goes six hours of my life.

  • 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 […]

  • I think perhaps they mean “could join x86 in the server room”

    As much as I love PowerPC, and as great as it is that they’re doing this OpenPower thing, I don’t think that the first step should be to eliminate the competition. Perhaps they should put some effort in to taking back a large part of the market. Didn’t these guys read The Art of War? […]

  • 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 […]

  • Wheezy 7.5 is out

    And my ISO archive is out of date again. *sigh* Luckily, apt-mirror has reduced the time required to upgrade all of my machines significantly ;-) cjac@foxtrot:~$ date ; sudo lsb_release -a Mon Apr 28 13:56:16 PDT 2014 [sudo] password for cjac: No LSB modules are available.

  • 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. […]
