Windows virus cleanup

Well, the one thing I love about being an independant consultant is that I get to do lots of different things, not just work on Mandriva stuff. One of the things I hate doing is Windows maintenance and it seems like there is a lot of that going around. Inevitably …

Plague of snow

I think if the Egyptians had a plague of snow first instead of water turning into blood, those Israelites would have been let go right away.

We've had about two feet of snow since midnight last night (might have been later but that's when I went to bed and there …

Migration complete... I hope

Well, only had to go down to the colo twice for this migration... =) Phoned the wife to check on it, reported all connections were good, so happily put stuff back, cleaned up the closet, etc. only to find when I got back home that I couldn't connect anymore. I think …

SunFire x2100

This is a sweet little machine... 1U opteron 146 (2GHz). Only comes with 512MB stock, but I'm putting 2GB of RAM in it, and two 300GB SATA II drives (acting as a RAID1 mirror). Comes with two gigabit ethernet cards (forcedeth and tg3) and uses sata_nv.

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 …

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 …

Windows innovations and the idiots that believe it

I find the computer industry, as pertaining to Microsoft "innovation" quite laughable. But the thing I find most amusing is that people buy this whole "we're Microsoft and we innovate". I don't think Redmond has come out with an original idea in, well, years. But people don't see this. It's …

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 …
