It was posted a few days ago, but this article on incron was interesting. Rather than run a script every so often to check for new files to be processed, this hooks into the kernel and triggers a script when a file handle event occurs. Even my Mum mentioned the “Me-Tube” [sic] incident. Renesys blog […]

Not sure why but I searched for my name in Google. Fairly common name so it wasn’t till about page 7 that this showed up. So I poked around a bit on the SFS site and found some more photos of us. Kuro5hin article barracking for more modularisation and sharing between software projects. Apple stops […]

Corner cases make me a sad panda

At $work[0] we’ve had issues with a server that has a Nvidia SATA controller. The errors look a little something like: ata2.00: cmd 60/08:78:3f:8f:3b/00:00:00:00:00/40 tag 15 cdb 0x0 data 4096 in res 40/00:00:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/00 Emask 0x4 (timeout) ata2.00: cmd 61/00:80:66:32:77/01:00:00:00:00/40 tag 16 cdb 0x0 data 131072 out res 40/00:00:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/00 Emask 0x4 (timeout) ata2: soft resetting port […]

I’m a Sony Ericcsson fanboi. Despite wanting a “smart phone” the P1 was totally underwhelming, so I upgraded to a k850i. Just in time for them to release the g900. Sigh. “It’s a doggone chart buster – a song audible only to dogs has topped New Zealand record charts, and is looking to go global.” […]

Internet “news” and those cable cuts.

I’ve followed with interest the cable cuts in the Med and Middle East that have seen rumour layered upon rumour and every armchair commentator lathered in to a frenzy with conspiracy theories. There has been excellent coverage at the Renesys blog (Parts 1, 2, 3, quash Iran rumours, 4, summary) and Data Centre Knowledge has […]

Data Centre Knowledge reports on Speed Cabling and links to another story and the official site. Crimping tools at 20 paces. What will they think of next?!? Stilgherrian links to a story at El Reg on the cable cut rumours. Speaking of the cable cuts, the Beebs has a nice article covering all the basics […]

CPU lines multiplying like rabbits?!?

So, I admit it’s been a while since I really looked into x86 hardware, but I remember a time when Intel and AMD (and any other CPU manufacturer…) had 2-3 lines at most. There was the one aimed at servers pitched at a speed/feature set, the one aimed at desktops pitched at a price point […]

Many to one SNAT on Cisco IOS

So, at $work[0] we needed to do a “many to one” SNAT on Cisco IOS. I’d only ever previously done this by SNAT’ing to an interface, however this required specifying the IP. My Google-fu failed me, I could turn up how to do the “SNAT to interface” and “SNAT one to one from a network […]
