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.

A few days ago I got umurmur up and running on OpenBSD. I sent the build patches in to the project developer and they were committed with minor edits. I've continued working on umurmur and I am closing in on submitting a port to OpenBSD.

I submitted three additional patches today to the umurmur project dev. The patches were to remove linker warnings (no, not all ports do that, but I will =) and now I've moved on to the finicky topic of security auditing. The baseline that I'm...

uMurmur on OpenBSD

I run a ventrilo server at home. My wife is an avid gamer (as am I, to a lesser extent), so ventrilo really helps with coordinating group gaming and in-game tactics.

There's just one problem...non-paid Ventrilo installs limit you to 8 people on the server at a time, and I'm too cheap to actually pay for a hosted unlimited vent server. On top of that, there is no native vent client for Linux or any of the BSD's, and most of the team we game with don't want to convert to TeamSpeak due...

Aesthetics of Change is a book written by Bradford Keeney in 1983. Taken at face value, it covers Family Systems Therapy. Upon digging deeper, though, a whole new world emerges from Keeney's work. Some random thoughts:

It amazes me how different people can observe the same event and walk away with completely different observations about the event. Example: a man and a child are walking on the opposite side of the road from two observers. The man raises his hand. Observer 1...

Today during our usual weekly roundup meeting, my boss announced that we're about to put in place a new VM server "cluster". It's a relatively nice setup: 3 servers, each with 2 quad-core Xeons and 48 GB of RAM. Each is connected to an iSCSI backend with TB's of storage...

So my boss asks us to estimate the CPU/RAM/disk space usage for our most critical servers that should be migrated over to the VM's. My most critical one is my OpenBSD server that I use to monitor all...

Yup, it's that time again. Time to renew our hatred of closed-source, "idiot-proof" software. Time to break out the pitchforks.

Well, it's that time for me, at least...you see, late yesterday afternoon I got a call from one of our customers. This customer was a bit of a tricky one that I hadn't dealt with much in the past, but going by the decisions they made in configuration and setup of their website (our code, their machines), I started putting two and two together...some...
