  • Man, that sucks

    I’ve dropped from a google pagerank of 7 to 5. I need to be more interesting, it seems. So, things… Unit testing with Perl is fun. You should all take a look at petdance‘s WWW::Mechanize and Test::WWW::Mechanize. If one were to want to make a bot to grab all of one’s financial data from one’s […]

  • Bind configuration cleaned up

    Okay. That wasn’t so bad. Now I need to find out whether people are querying colliertech.org or ns1.colliertech.org and ns2.colliertech.org. If colliertech.org is still getting the brunt of the requests, I need to find out how I misconfigured bind and then fix it. If the requests have started flowing to ns1.colliertech.org (66.152.65.10) and ns2.colliertech.org (66.152.65.11) […]

  • DNS changes

    I’m working on the family’s servers over vacation. I’m moving a bunch of the bandwidth-consuming bits off of the server on the T1. One of the services I’m moving to its own VM is bind9. I figure it should live on its own box that does only DNS-ish stuff. That way I can make sure […]

  • Network outage

    Hey all, Email is broken for the day. It looks like it might be an offline weekend as far as email and the wiki goes. My backup MX servers will qeue the messages, though, so I’ll likely get any undelivered mail re-delivered in the next 5 days. Sorry for the inconvenience, Vaughn, Chris, Mom, Eric, […]

  • I’m at OSCON

    I’m making videos. https://colliertech.com/oscon2006/ I need to learn how to compress some of these iMovies snippets into something consumable by the general public via “podcasting” software. Who knows what formats *everybody* can watch / listen to on *all* platforms? What does VLC support? I’ll target VLC as the media player and I plan to set […]

    C.J. Blathers about recent major changes in his life. https://colliertech.com/~cjcollier/confidential/sateOfTheCJ20060625.ogg https://colliertech.com/~cjcollier/confidential/sateOfTheCJ20060625.mp3 Mail me for credentials.

  • Network Neutrality in a nutshell

    Network Neutrality is a term used to encompas the need for a balanced playing field on the Internet. Proponents for neutrality claim that having a tiered infrastructure will create a hierarchy of “haves” and “have nots.” The perceived problems would be similar to U.S. politics’ main problem: everyone has an equal vote; but those with […]

  • Moved blog, took long weekend

    For those of you who want to hear me read this instead of having to do so yourself (no hyperlinks), click here for .ogg and here for .mp3. I migrated the blogs’ database and code from moonunit to avenger, both of which run Debian Sarge. Y’all should now notice a vast improvement in throughput. The […]
