namebench

Posted 09-24-2011 at 03:19 PM by rich_c

I've been playing around with namebench since reading a post about it on the Mepis community forums. A nifty tool! One thing I discovered that annoyed me slightly though, is that my home router (BT Home Hub) will not allow me to change it's default DNS servers. So, if I want to use the faster servers namebench identified I've got to configure on a per machine basis for everything on my home network... :-/ Oh well.

Tags awkward, rant, weird

Blargh. Yet another rant. I swear, the "rant" tag in my tag cloud is gonna get so big as to totally obscure the other ones eventually…

Anyways:

I know I probably spend way too much time on and/or put way too much stock into Wikipedia, but I just got done reading the article on "Medicalization", and I must say, that seems to be the way things are going (at least here in the US): basically a pill for everything that "cures what ails...

The key here was understanding that the iMon device is now supported in the kernel using the new infrastructure. What this did is make the iMon device send normal input events. (I think this is mostly because it does the IR decoding directly in hardware). What...
