Back On The Bike

I haven't been out riding since our Whistler trip in August after I hurt my wrists and my buddy Sean fubared his knee. Well no more.

UT2004 on linux and fedora 8 on my mac

Ah what a great day. I've got UT2004 working on my desktop running fedora 7 and fedora 8 successfully installed on my mac with the help of Mike Harris! Good stuff. I love my mac! Oh and I switched to KDE, got Amarok set up and can burn mp3s with K3b. A very good day indeed.

Karl and his de-seasoned mug

This is Karl and that is his shiny OCLC mug. After two years of receiving new mugs and threats of a new mug every gift exchange we have in the future, Karl came in with his old mug sans what looked like 20 years of coffee residue. It was a historical moment.

Encrypted USB Key Fob

I found a 1G USB key on the sidewalk today. The plastic case was missing and it was a bit muddy but it works. So, I decided to play around and set it up with an encrypted filesystem on Fedora 8.

If you run gnome then you will be prompted for the password when you insert the thumbdrive.

The Last Unchicken

We ate the last unchicken that's been sitting in our freezer since Now And Zen went out of business. Now that we know how to make them it didn't seem quite so special.

I'm still planning to make several and stuff them in the freezer.

Fedora 7 & 8 dom0 Crashes Due to domU Traffic Shaping

A Fedora 7 dom0 I have crashes with null pointer dereferences in tcp_tso_segment. After upgrading to F8 this is still happening. This seems to stem from traffic shaping in a busy domU fedora mirror server. Poking around it looks like this bug http://lists.openwall.net/netdev/2007/02/09/16 Well, they fixed that by twiddling net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_REJECT.c but I think something in my Xen enviro with a combination of a busy bridge and traffic control rules is still tripping up on net/ipv4/tcp.c line 2241 "skb = skb->next;" from what I can decypher.

Unturkey 2007

Well, the unturkey came out great! Getting it to unroll will take a bit of tweaking. Jill says we won't use that stuffing recipe next time. We used her own gravy recipe too.

Knit Doggie Sweater

I started knitting a doggie sweater last week. You can tell Thor can't wait to
try it on. I'm afraid it may wind up being a little too large and I may have
to force Cheech to wear it.

tofurkey

ive been eating tofurkeys for quite some time now and for some reason this year i just couldnt get into it. it actually made me feel a little sick. i could blame it on my dad, but honestly his vegan culinary skills are pretty good.
i enjoiyed the many side dishes, though.

maybe next year i will try to make my own vegan turkey but for now i think ill stick to the mashed taters, stuffing, green bean casserole, etc.

so long tofurkey, you have been a staple in my thanksgivings for years.
you'll be missed.

Almost "Thanksgiving"

We've been busy getting ready for tomorrow. The unturkey is in the process of being constructed. The most important item for tomorrow is already in the freezer. :)
