Another Pointless Endeavour

Posted 08-06-2015 at 04:10 AM by Randicus Draco Albus

(Arch users might want to skip to the end and start yelling at me without reading my rant.)

While searching for something BSD-related recently, I accidentally stumbled upon Arch BSD. I knew doing a little research was a bad idea, but curiosity got the better of me. Their website, especially the forum, was very illuminating.

What is the mindset behind this project?

Taken out by Duct Tape!

Posted 07-30-2015 at 05:31 PM by Habitual

Every Week for the last half-year, we have had some kind of issue with ping/icmp-related zabbix checks. We couldn't nail it down.
Finally, in the end, I disabled ping checks via zabbix and (not-so-)silently declared icmp checks in zabbix as 'fluff'. Useless.

This has been ok up until this week. We hit our cap Hard and Fast on Wednesday morning.
