(Who?) Barry Smith once drew the incredibly awesome Angst Technologies webcomic. He went on hiatus for a while, but has restarted his artwork. I highly recommend reading through the archives – the current strip is on InkTank.com. He’s thoughtfully linked the older strips into archives. Ya’ll can finally see the origin of the IT Ninjas.Read More
Check it out. My nephew’s band, “The Malone” has set up their myspace page (Warning for us old farts – it will start playing music as soon as you click on that link.) Josh is playing bass, and I can well say he sounds a lot better than I do.
Last night I wanted to sit down and listen to some RadioParadise during gaming. Unfortunately, my efforts to get a streaming ‘terminal’ available in the living room (other than plugging in one of the laptops) hasn’t gone particularly well. I remember listening to RP via my iPhone, and since we had Cat’s Bose Sounddock onRead More

I’ve been having… unpure thoughts lately. While I’m fairly happy with clipper running Ubuntu 8.10 as my working desktop machine, I realize that clipper is getting a little long in the tooth (I have not worn the keycaps off, but there’s a distinct ‘looseness’ in the keyboard).

A few years ago, I posted about reading books on my Treo – an exercise I thought I’d never enjoy, but in the end, enjoyed quite a lot. Ever since I got my iPhone, I’ve been considering setting up an ebook reader, but never got around to it. Recently I found the Classics app, aRead More
Not 64 bit. Originally uploaded by eidolon Gall dang it. ‘ketch’ will be the new application server at our colo facility. I’vebeen slowly piecing it together and installing pieces on it. Tonight I sat down to load Debian etch. Lo, it kept coming up with: Your cpu does not support long mode Turns out theseRead More
About six months ago, it became pretty apparent that boomer‘s newest brother, guardian, wasn’t going to be enough to bring the load off the main server, and that applications needed to be shifted off boomer soon. The paired 80gig SATA drives were getting full – it was time to expand the cluster. Because homeport isRead More
Dear Eclipse Developers… having a bug open for 3+ years, through a myriad number of releases is inexcusable. Pointing fingers at different development groups saying “it’s their fault” and others saying “it’s those peoples fault” is not appropriate. Just fix the damned bug already. (NB – yes, that bug is only 6 months old. ItRead More
Yesterday (Saturday), Zach and I packed up our gear and headed off to Wachusett to ski for as much of the day as we could tolerate. We had some plans for the evening, so the latest we could get home was around 5pm, but as we left the house at 9am, I didn’t think thatRead More
