Checking out posting
Haven't posted in a couple of years, heard a rumor that they're going to be cleaning out unused accounts. I mostly use this one to comment on other people's posts, does that count?

Seven Songs Meme
Got this from Tim H -- my first meme ever. This might be a little weird.

Handlebars - Flobots
I Will Possess Your Heart - Death Cab for Cutie
You Can't Stop the Beat - Hairspray
Walking on Sunshine - Katrina and the Waves
I Feel Fantastic - Jonathan Coulton
Clocks (and a bunch of other stuff) - Coldplay
Confessions Part III - Weird Al Yankovic

That is a somewhat atypical list for me, the Coldplay thing is because of their 30 days of Coldplay on XM and at least a couple of those songs are there because my kids make me hear them (and one was on TV).

Shaw Cable deal
We got a good deal on our cable package -- it's like 40% off, Shaw Extreme internet and a bunch of channels (but not the movie channel). We heard about it on Red Flag Deals web page. You have to be a student, though, but I get free tuition (which is also a good deal, but I didn't get that one from RFD.) I like this deal 'cuz it just keeps on, every month...

Back at work
Wow, I was working at another library, then off for a couple of months with the baby, and I just noticed I haven't posted since, like, 2005. Scary.

Day of the Ninja!
But you know, I don't feel particularly Ninja today. And isn't announcing your Ninjaness kind of anti-ninja?

Fudge Factor
Last week I got an article published...my first. It's in Fudge Factor, and my article is here.

Linux is working
Yeah, got some new (to us) hardware and put some stuff together, so I now have a reasonably smokin' Linux box that I can access from wherever.

Also, in other news, I pretty much never up date my LiveJournal.

Truth and Justice
Been really getting into Truth and Justice lately. A supers game that captures most of what I like about comics and movies. Still no luck on the Linux front, but I won a Pocket PC at the end of June. and we had a new baby

And now the Linux box is dead!
Or maybe just dying...gettin' all kinds of DMA errors all of a sudden, and this after a few weeks of happy VNC connections from all over the place.

Finally fixed my SSH
Was probably a port thing, or maybe my router's settings. Anyway, updating my router's firmware (thus clearing all my old tangled spaghetti settings) + routing an external port to 22 on my Linux box (thus defeating my ISP's block of port 22) did the trick.

Mostly, except that one of the machines I SSH in from doesn't do reverse lookup properly -- auth.log lists it as a possible breakin attempt and I just get "No further authentication methods available" when I try to connect. :-( If there's anyway I can fix that, someone let me know...

Anyone know how to use sshd?
I've been trying to ssh in to my Debian box -- I thought it might be my router giving me trouble, but I unhooked that and still couldn't. Anyone who can fix it will get a free link to their page.

Here's the description: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=248641

Wow, it's still here.
I thought LiveJournals could atrophy...I wonder why this one hasn't yet.

Another good reason for LJ
I just realized that now I can post comments to other people's LJs. Well, there you go!

Why did I get a LiveJournal?
I got one because people were talking about it on the Fudge mailing list. Fudge is cool, and it sounded like everyone else had one, so of course I had to get one too! (I'm sure glad they didn't all jump off a bridge...I hate when that happens.)
