Oh well.

Updated my Dell GX1 PII server to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. One or two of the old web apps are foobarred and need to be fixed. The apps I wrote still work though. The Firefly itunes sort of compatible streaming server still works. You can not live without music.

Updated my Wordpress blog (computothought.wordpress.com) with entries from an older blog. You spend any amount of time on a blog and it becomes a real body of work before you know it.

PostgreSQL and Indexes: a formula for...disaster?

I've noticed a ton of complaining about PostgreSQL's apparent lack of sanity when it comes to index usage, so I'd like to throw a few things out that explain the "idiotic" way PostgreSQL handles indexes.

First things first. If the table fits in a single page, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO SEE INDEX ACTIVITY. That gets more people than any other issue. If the table has 17 rows, don't expect PostgreSQL to bother with indexes. Using an index on a table that fits in a single page...

They do not come because they do not care

Linux captured 2% of the desktop and is not moving anywhere despite all the Ubuntu efforts. It took me long time before I could formulate my understanding of the WHY.

Re: 2%. Some say it is 1% and the other say it is biased. Yet the other say it should be estimated at 5% based on indirect data. My impression is that whenever I run over something that looks both measured and unbiased in the Net, it is 2%. So, let it be 2%. The number does not matter much, what matters is that it is...

Red Router

Posted 01-26-2011 at 10:46 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I've just obtained a new router from my ISP after the older one started to have problems. The new one is bigger and uglier, but shares the same webUI.

On the previous router a portscan revealed port 23 for telnet was available, but the router just refused my connection when I tried to connect to it. The newer router only reports two open ports, and they are both for net traffic:
