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 had a goofy x86 pizza box for over a decade, some early PIII with 256 MB RAM. It has a couple of odd features, namely it boots off of CF and has dual on-board NICs, that made it a nice firewall machine. I got it when the ISP next door to the company I was working at went out of business, and the network guys didn't feel like hauling all the gear off.
Only problem is, it is the only 32 bit machine in my inventory, and I've been putting off upgrading it. Luck has it, fate chose...

OpenBSD maintained a fork of apache httpd 1.3 for some time, but as the fork started to show its age, they dropped it in favor of nginx. A year later, a home-grown secure web server, called simply "httpd" was birthed from the relayd codebase. I just started messing with httpd recently, and I managed to get smokeping running beautifully in it. After a bit, I decided to start gathering latency stats on ipv6, so I added most of that today. I'm pretty happy with the results.

If there is one thing I have never fully understood, it is bird people. They have tons of birds loose in their house, feathers and bird crap on everything...just, not a good way to go, right? Last time I visited a friend who is a bird person, I had some feathery jerk land on my head and crap on my glasses.
I'm more of a fish and reptile person. I tolerate cats and dogs (well, moreso cats than dogs). So when my wife suggested we get two parakeets to keep as pets, I wasn't thrilled....

Still waiting on parts, but I've gotten the rails toggle switch and standby/power LEDs soldered in, and I have the load resistor in as well. Binding posts are holding up the entire show. Should be delivered today, I hope. After desoldering half of the dead electronics in the house, it felt good to put something together (even if I'm still not done).
In other news, my ATmega328P board is coming along nicely (not that I've actually *tested* it, as I'm waiting for the *ahem* bench...
