Pinned toot

? But I never did ...

I'm a weird guy who decided to base his profile on the movie Sneakers. I love technology, probably more than is healthy. My interests tend to revolve in a cycle but in the spirit of I try to keep it to infosec and general internet nerdery.

I live with a migraine 24/7 so don't be surprised to see the occasional related toot.

Fun STA Fact #4 (collect them all!): A Canadian goose once attempted to carjack me.

I really haven't the slightest what I'm doing when it comes to Blender, so I'm rather pleased with this. It only took an entire day.

Just discovered that Dreamstate Logic has a bunch of tracks available for download:

The Etherpad, and other services should be back up. , Joeys, and anyone else ought to be able to access it just as soon as the DNS propagates.

Took me a while to physically locate the RasPi running my internal DNS. I had SSH'd in and shut it down when the power went out, but apparently the UPS in that room never got shut off. Couldn't figure out where it was to sort out why it wasn't coming back up. I guess a network diagram should go on the to do list.

Power's back on. Ahead of schedule even. I'm a little concerned that the whole sky flashed when it came on. Glitch in the matrix I guess.

I'm going to wait a bit and make sure it stays on before I go through the trouble of firing up all the UPSes and the server.

New ETA is 0330 UTC.

So glad the window fan I built is USB powered. Hooked it up to a portable battery pack for some minor summer relief.

Internet outage in Setec land. Possibly related to nearby power outage with service return ETA of 0200 UTC. Or it could be a coincidence in which case it's not likely to get sorted until tomorrow.

Aaaand there goes my power. Fun. Gonna be a toasty night.

This means the etherpad is down, among other things. Sorry and Joeys. Tis the season. :_storm:

Me talking to dad recently: they must have done something to the cable modem because I haven't been able to get to the web interface in months.

Me trying to troubleshoot it today:


**checks subnet mask**


"This vehicle observes speed limits"

Hey Frank, did you see that speed limit?

Sure did, Bob. It didn't seem to be doing much though.

"Per building manager: please do not flush anything other than toilet tissue."

**Carefully puts poo in trash**

Trying to sort out some stuff on my system, I see an SSH session for my user `username@notty`. Wait. I've got no boxen named `notty`

*PANIC MODE* Hackers! Must be hackers! SLAG THE SERVER!

Wait. No. "No TTY"

That's me logged into the local console.


Carry on. The sky is not falling.
