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.

Dear World

I survived another year. I know eventually you'll get the best of me, but until then better luck next go-round...

I've run a tor relay over at Digital Ocean for a while now, and I finally decided to pull the plug on it. Digital Ocean announced up coming BSD support, and I waited with anticipation to see exactly how far they were willing to go with the BSDs...and let down that it was only FreeBSD support. (I've been running the tor node on Debian...not exactly ideal in my opinion, but it's been working well enough...I was really looking forward to switching the tor node over to OpenBSD...).

One of those days (rant)

Posted 10-19-2014 at 08:50 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Ever have one of those days where you want to grab people, shake them within an inch of their lives, and scream in their face "WWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKE UUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPP!!"??

I'm having one of those days. I read a debate earlier where one side was arguing that RMS has saved us from proprietary control and all that jazz.

Really? It's 2014. 2004 wants its punchline back.

I challenge ANY of you to a simple task. I challenge you to fork a GPL project,...
