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.

BeagleBSD?

Posted 04-29-2014 at 11:55 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I picked up a BeagleBone Black a few days ago and a microSD card.

I have been playing around with Angstrom (the default Linux install that comes with the BeagleBone) while waiting for my serial cable to arrive so I can install OpenBSD. I've decided that this gadget is going to go in my car. I have a few ideas for what I'd like to do with it, but primarily I think I'm going to attempt to wire up a cellular network + wifi to create a secure mobile hotspot.

Unfortunately...

A (sad) tale of ISPs in the USA

I moved recently to the Seattle area for a job with Amazon.

I'd had Time Warner Cable in San Antonio, which was woefully under-saavy for some of the stuff I was wanting to do (mostly revolving around IPv6), so I was excited to see what opportunities there were with new ISPs in Seattle. My wife didn't want to live *in* Seattle, so we got a nice rental setup out near Renton, a little ways south of Seattle.

One of our next door neighbors is a Comcast employee, as evidenced...

Starting a new chapter

Posted 03-06-2014 at 08:40 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

The time has come for me to bid farewell to San Antonio. I accepted a position at Amazon's Seattle office so I could get my wife closer to her aging Dad (who we haven't seen since our wedding over a decade ago).

It's a real bittersweet time for me. My team at Rackspace is (and will likely be for a very long time) the coolest group of people I've ever had the pleasure of working with...and on top of that, I had the best customers a Linux tech could ask for. Sure, the occasional...

home network vlan fun!

I recently posted about carving out /30 vlans for the Windows machines on my network at home. It's been working well, so I decided to carve up the remaining network to provide some layer of separation between devices.

My wife picked up a Buffalo N600 dual-band wireless access point for me recently. I have dd-wrt running on my old AP (because open-wrt won't run on it), so I figured I'd flash the Buffalo with openwrt and roll with it. I configured both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands with...

iptables revisited

Posted 12-05-2013 at 04:05 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I spent a bit of time revamping my iptables rules on a public torrent/voip server of mine, so I figured I would dump them here (sanitized) for future reference:

Code:
root@dfw:~# iptables -nvL
Chain INPUT (policy DROP 0 packets, 0 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         
   47  1896 LOG-DROP   all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0            ctstate INVALID /* SCANS AND SUCH? */
