    So, I’m taking vacation this week and next. Here’s a (partial) list of tasks that are left to do: Visit BC for NANOG 55 Work with Threshold Communications to verify interop is working as well as it seems to be Make sure the UTC has acknowledged receipt of our 2012 filing Complete move of storage […]

  • 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 […]

  • Dear fellows of the SJCARS

    I’ve got a project I could use some help with.  If you’ve got some tuits to spare, I’d love to talk with you about the plan.  Perhaps I’ll post something to the blog… [edit 20120212T2025] blogged. http://sjcars.org/blog/2012/02/12/hardware-what-wants-deploying [Edit 20120213T0026]

  • 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.

  • Power blip in Tukwila – everything’s okay.

    There’s been a lot of weather here in Seattle this week. It looks like the Tukwila DC’s power blipped this morning. It gave me an excuse to update some configs on a few of the OpenVPN endpoints, re-configure some of the shorewall6 stuff, and enter a bunch of hosts and IPs into the BIG-IP’s node […]

  • Replaced hypervisor

    The system which was hosting this blog had a tendency to go down every few days. I swapped it out for a spare yesterday. Let’s see if it stays up. The hypervisor hosts this web server, a mysql server and an SKS pool member, all of which are built on top of Squeeze.

  • 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 […]
