Grub, a Network Admin’s Greatest Nightmare

Yikes, just got a chance to try out Grub, a distributed web crawling project… aka cheap bandwidth… This thing is scary. If I were a Network Admin, I would be working on ways to block this right now. This thing is bad news.

MacVillage.net 4.0 Commencement

I’ve started work on MacVillage.net 4.0. Can’t say much… but the new design is in the works. It will include the capacity for more features to be implemented, without so much work. And better navigation abilities. Will be good. No idea when it will be done… I’m in real early stages.

SAproxy for OS X

Well, it’s going to happen. I decided that Mac OS X could use a good Spam Filter, and SpamAssassin is the way to go. I have it running on my system now. I hope to have it packaged for easy installation sometime soon. Perhaps shortly after finals end. Perhaps after get a little Coca UI […]

SpamAssassin and OS X

Well, I’ve been working on getting SpamAssassin working with Mac OS X, and have gotten it working pretty good. Either just to filter spam for the computer, or for an entire network.

Real Spam

Well, I have been spending some time (don’t laugh) reading spam. I’m actually analyzing spam for generating some new rules for the SpamAssassin Project. It’s seriously good software, check it out. This is some real spam about my favorite science, Penis Enlargement. It is slightly suggestive, so don’t read on unless you are ok with […]

Saddam Falls

Baghdad has fallen. Saddam may be dead. Damn this war is going fast. In a matter of weeks, we are already at the capitol. Granted the war is far from done, the Center of Gravity (Clausewitz) is already occupied by the US. You got to to love the picture to the right. Is that Flag […]

Fan Site starting to look better?

Well, maybe it’s just me, but I think the site is starting to look a bit better….. The other day I added the What’s Playing to the side of my blog… It will show what songs are currently/have been playing on my computer. Other additions include fixing some layout bugs from hacks of the other […]

MacVillage.net News and such

Well, macvillage.net is starting to come back to life again. After a week of server chaos. The backend is starting to look OK, less database errors due to mySQL timeouts, mail seems to be slightly more reliable (admin mail), and such. The NewsEngine 3.0 Project is nearing completion, after 2 days of work. Most of […]

Mozilla… did I know what was coming or what?

Well… I figured it out (or ironically ended up on Mozillazine during the brief moment the story was prematurely published). I think Mozilla splitting up into multiple apps is a good thing. Read on to see my hopes for the new Mozilla, and check out Asa’s Blog for some more info.

Ever have that lazy feeling

Ugh… Just not in the mood to do much this week. It’s classes, the necessary classwork… and nothing else. It’s getting pathetic. Every afternoon I find myself watching reruns of “Home Improvement”, “Friends”, “Seinfeld”… all of which I have seen every episode. And I still watch. Tonight on the other hand is new Southpark and […]
