Als je verkeerd geparkeerd staat, waarom zet je dan je alarmlichten aan? Mag het dan wel? Jaja, om het andere verkeer te waarschuwen zeker? En die zouden je niet zien staan? Die dingen zijn er om in een noodsituatie te gebruiken, niet omdat je een warm broodje bij de bakker wilt halen of een brief wilt posten.
My sister and I went to a Robbie Williams concert in Lyon October 25th, and during the weekend I made some photos of Lyon.
Titanic sank last week. Well, actually, either one of the hard disks crashed or the secondary harddisk controller thought it would be nice to start generating errors at a progressively alarming rate.
I already had the successor waiting to take over from titanic. I just needed to install a Linux distribution on brittanic and all should be well. Or so I thought. A friend of mine is working on a distribution focussed on security. So I first installed Debian, changed the sources.list file and then updated to Adamantix. This was a bad idea for a first timer on a Debian based distro. At the end I had it so broken, I could'nt log in anymore.
Fortunately it was still routing traffic, so I could download Redhat 9. All is well so far, I just need to install some more stuff like gallery.
One advantage is that I have lots more harddisk space. Titanic had one 250MB harddisk and one 540 MB harddisk, both at least 8 years old. Now I have a 6 and an 8 GB harddisk, plus the current machine has a normal BIOS, although it is also a Compaq machine, but of later vintage.
Lately I have been writing a Windows client for the GNUCoMo project. The client sends events from the Windows event log and some other log files to a server. The server tries to read and comprehend all incoming information and checks if there's a portscan going on, or someone broke in to your server, etc. From what I can see, the US Army could also have used this kind of software in Iraq.
And from today, TrustedDebian is called Adamantix
Apparently Debian is a trademark and the Debian project doesn't want to risk its good name with a measly little project like this ;-)
Anyway, two weeks ago I failed my CCNA exam... Bummer.
So, the Cisco thing blew over. Yes, they included Ethereal, but if you asked them, you'd get a CD with the sources. No problems as far as I can see. A friend of mine who's a journalist has asked around (Cisco, FSF) and all seems to be alright. Anyway, this happened a loooonnnnggg time ago ;-)
Anyway, a lot has happened at the company I work for, some good, some bad.
Last week I've been on a Cisco course (the irony), ICND (Interconnecting Cisco network devices?), to become CCNA. Weee!
According to this post to
the Ethereal developers mailinglist Cisco could have a slight problem. Not everything is clear right now, but
it seems possible that Cisco could be violating the GPL...... Interesting.
This is weird, the "hostname" ramdyne.blogspot.com gives an error message, but I can still enter my account? Oh well, let's see if publishing a new blog item will help
It's been a long time since I updated this page. But now I have ADSL I can update this page a lot more often.
One of the sites I created is at voice2sniff.org Check out the strange statistics starting the second week of this year (click on the link called "wanneer" in the top left corner. Really strange, I can't explain this figure.....
