I've been playing around with setting up my own Certificate Authority for my local LAN (for things like WPA2 Enterprise, Certificate-based VPN tunnels, etc...) and I figured I'd make this "pilot" as cheap as possible. For testing purposes, I'll set it up on a USB jump drive. Encrypted, of course.

But then I got to thinking...a CA is something I'll use very often at first, but then once all of the certificates are in place, I likely won't touch it for another year. That's...

Spring is near!

Posted 03-08-2015 at 11:24 AM by onebuck


Two weeks from today and it's officially spring!

In like lion and out like a lamb. So it seems we are going out as a lamb. Chance of the sixties next week. Starting to thaw here, mucky mess everywhere. On the farm this time of year was a lot of work getting fences mended and husbandry for the animals was a must in the spring. Shots for the horses along with worming. Hopefully the hay stack was high enough for the next 8 weeks. Since first cut wasn't until mid May....

AndEX (Android) x86 5.0.2 Lollipop Live CD with kernel 3.10.58-exton-android-x86

Updated 04-02-2015 at 10:59 AM by exton (No longer a free download...)

I have compiled an Android x86 system (Lollipop 5.0.2), which can run live (from CD) or be installed on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops. The Android system is distributed in the form of an ISO file as the rest of my Linux distributions. I.e. you must (as usual) burn the ISO file to a CD if you want to run the system live on your computer or install it to hard drive. Read...

Atypical Friday

Ok, so it wasn't like vmccord's Friday, more like a "light my hair on fire and run around like a madman" kind of Friday.

Started off like any other, then I got pulled in to a new candidate interview loop. First one, shadowing a guy who is much more experienced in interviewing (at Amazon, at least). So far so good. Interview, even though it was short notice, went ok. Not that I have much to compare to (except for my interview process, perhaps), but it happened, and it...

Vonets mini 300 wifi bridge/repeater

Posted 03-04-2015 at 03:57 PM by WestCoastSunset

I recently purchased one of these for my magic jack. I won't bore you with alot of unnecessary details. First, this is a small device, smaller than a credit card.

I initially had some trouble with it and thought it was defective, until I figured out, that YOU MUST USE INTERNET EXPLORER FOR CONFIGURATION. Any attempt to use another browser will lead you to believe it is configured properly, but it will not work, thus making you believe the unit is defective when it is not.
