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.

My brain is a Jelly Doughnut

Ok, so that's not *precisely* what he said.

Today it occurred to me that it's scary how easy BGP and ESP are to configure...on OpenBSD...and by proxy, pfSense.

There exist other network vendors (I dare not mention in name, lest they haunt my sleep tonight), for whom configuring ESP is the equivalent of stapling your tenders to a ceiling fan and then turning it on high.

TL;DR: Ouch.

That's enough for today.

OpenBSD AWS BGP VPN

In an earlier blogpost, I covered configuring a static AWS VPN setup with OpenBSD. I promised I'd revisit it to include the BGP (dynamically routed) version if I ever got it working.

Hi, I got it working.

**sorta** working (major emphasis on "sorta").

Let me explain...OpenBSD is a policy-based IPSEC engine. AWS operates on a route-based IPSEC engine. The major difference, in laymen's terms, is that with route-based IPSEC you can configure...

Cat meme IRL?

Posted 04-07-2015 at 05:25 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

A few days ago my daughter called me at work. I could hear the panic in her voice as she said "Dad, it's not my fault!".

There are *many* things that run through a parent's mind in this situation. None of them are pleasant.

Found someone, you have, I would say, hmmm?

I was looking for a manager to handle a particular issue earlier, and I reached out to him on internal chat to get assistance. He wasn't available. In frustration, I mumbled "That manager is our only hope."

I love this place.
