Palm Treo 650

Last week when I had my little hard drive fiasco, and about 15 minutes after writing my blog entry, I realized I had lost my phone... a motorola v710. Figuring that it was either at the colo or at the one convenience store I had stopped at on my home …

Annvix-mobile is back!

Funny the timing of these things. When I got my ANNVIX license plate it was within a day (if I remember correctly) of 1.1-RELEASE going out. Looks like it's the same this time. Picked up the Annvix-mobile this afternoon after about 2.5 months of being in the shop …

How I love thee RAID1

Well, having a RAID1 setup on this server has saved my a$$ in a huge way. Yesterday I started getting notifications of a smart failure on one of the drives (I have two configured as a RAID1 across a few partitions). So I went down to the colo to swap …

Level 40... finally

Well, I've been playing WoW for a while now... since the summer of last year. I finally managed to get my druid up to level 40. Yeah, you young guys with nothing but homework are laughing at me now since it's taken me so long to hit, but whatever... considering …

Linux security... ad nauseum

You know, it really irritates me that almost every single day there is a new "report" or article out about Linux security... and more often than not it's compared to Windows security. Not only has this topic been beaten to death, stomped on, kicked, buried, dug up, and beaten some …

Theo in disguise?

It's come to my attention that some folks seem to think I'm Theo de Raadt in disguise... that I'm somewhat volatile in email. Nope... I'm not Theo. But I do get irritated fairly easily... maybe I've got a hidden God-complex somewhere that I'm not aware of, or maybe I'm fed …

Modified svn2cl

I had made the transition to subversion a while ago for handling not only Annvix, but my own personal stuff as well (web work, scripts I use, etc.). The one thing that I really liked about using CVS tho was the cvs2cl script, which makes a nice little Changelog file …
