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.

umurmur port progress

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...

Bus error (core dumped)

Posted 03-23-2010 at 01:42 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Don't you hate it when ideas flow so rapidly that you can't get them written down fast enough? I find myself in this situation sometimes, and it really is quite annoying. On the plus side, if I ever start up my business that I've been meaning to start, I'll have hundreds of plans to fall back on if something goes wrong...even if 5 out of every 6 ideas didn't make it to paper in time =)

If Intel designed human beings...

The title is a quote from "Structured Computer Organization, Fifth Edition" by Andrew S. Tanenbaum. The full quote:

"If Intel designed human beings, it would have put in a bit that made them revert back to chimpanzee mode (most of the brain disabled, no speech, sleeps in trees, eats mostly bananas, etc.)."

I'm quite often seen around the internet using a "monkey with glasses" avatar (See it on my LQ profile), and on many occasions people...
