  • 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    And my ISO archive is out of date again.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. Distributor ID: Debian Description: Debian GNU/Linux 7.4 (wheezy) Release: […]

  • Windows is *still* loading files

    I’m moving the active directory server off of hardware on to the hypervisor. I think if I boot the drive as USB I can install the virtio disk drivers on the system. Fingers crossed! Only thing is that this first boot off of a USB device takes *sooooo* long!

  • When was the last time you upgraded from squeeze to wheezy?

    Wow. 3G delta. I haven’t booted this laptop for a while… I think I’m finally ready to make the move from gnome2 to gnome3. There are bits that still annoy me, but I think it’s off to a good start. Upgrading perl from 5.10 to 5.14. cjac@calcifer:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Reading package lists… Done Building […]

  • OpenVPN configs with inline data

    I’ve been issuing a lot of x.509 certs and OpenVPN user configurations lately, and I came across something that has reduced the complexity quite a bit. It seems that OpenVPN configuration files can now include data inline. So rather than generating and distributing the following for each user: a configuration file a chain of CA […]

  • I’m back on the internet 6 it seems.

    cjac@foxtrot:/usr/src/deb/strongswan-5.1.0$ ping6 -c 5 google.com | tail -3 — google.com ping statistics — 5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 4004ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 65.235/74.957/103.039/14.122 ms go go gadget ipsec

  • 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 […]

  • Gotta’ get ’em all.

    And now I have them all. Maybe I can reduce the load on my wan pipe by setting up a mirror for the island.

  • Vacation Tasks

    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 […]

  • Ohai! It looks like I’m back online!

    I’m working on my disk array today. The plan is to take the data off of a 6-disk RAID-6 and put it onto three 4-disk RAID-4s.
