Shoe-tying and other old articles...

From my referrer logs, apparently my old articles on shoe-tying and other inanities were actually a bit of a hit on Google. Anyway, I was able to recover the archives from the crashed hard drive on the old site, and will be posting what I can. I only had a dozen articles or so, but I have had a LOT of people hitting the shoe-tying page! Go figure.

Postfix, Sender Address Verification, and Spammers

EDIT: This blog entry is quite old, in the world of Postfix. It's easy to find RPMs for 2.0 experimental releases now, and the word "experimental" (as of August 2003) is starting to sound a little funny for what is becoming the mainstream release people are using day-to-day.

Now, some important information before you get excited about Sender Address Verification:

Trying drupal CVS

I'm going to be checking out Drupal CVS over the next few days. I'm really anti-excited about the whole "being online to blog" thing. Yeah, I know, I can vi a file or something and paste it, but I'd really prefer to be able to use mozblog or something so that I don't have to be online, and that I can really tweak the heck out of links in my post before putting it up there. Wish me luck.

Indiana Jones

So much for my plans of hacking; I've spent all day so far working on my in-law's computer. Not only did they have the usual Gator, Comet Cursor, and other spyware/adware programs installed, they also were infected by three different virusses. I F-PROT'd their computer, but I still...

Heading to Idaho, musings on priorities

So I'm heading to Idaho to hang out with my in-laws in a few hours. Now I have a power inverter and can hack while Christy drives, though :)
(Note: Dangit, just noticed time on this system is an hour ahead of mine, in Central time. Gotta fix that, my weblogs are showing up an hour off!)

Progress and problems creating Bugzilla's annotated documentation system. Not much progress, mostly butting my head against the wall. Read more for details. I'm going to bed.
