Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

I've been using mutt for the longest time now. I love mutt.

Unfortunately, sometimes I still have to use my company's Outlook webmail for whatever reason. I've used it on my wife's Windows 7 machine to fire off a quick response email (I really hate typing on my iphone's keyboard) to a critical update (or whatever), so imagine my surprise when I fired up Outlook webmail on my OpenBSD machine and was given a choice between using the "Light" (i.e. complete crap unusable)...

Die, Ad, die?

I hate ads. I took it upon myself to start filtering ads via unbound recently, but then my wife (an avid Google Chrome user) started complaining about the incredibly painful eyesore that is Chrome's way of saying "jeez...this piece of the page rejected my connection attempt".

There must be an easier way, right?

Yup. There is.

On an old sparc box, I put nginx. I configured it to serve 404.gif (a transparent gif) on all 404 errors. Oh, did...
