  • Title: waider dot i e
    Descriptive info: .. waider.. dot i e.. livejournal.. pix.. workshop.. text.. lyrics.. Reading.. Overcoming Peace of Mind: Essays and Errata: Brett Palomar: 9781452867755: Amazon.. com.. Once Upon a Hide: Pat Ingoldsby: Amazon.. Chickenhawk: Robert Mason: Amazon.. com: Kindle Store.. Watching.. Chronicle (2012).. Snapping.. Web.. Here.. Being The Geekly Diary of Waider.. (may contain traces of drinking, movies, and sport).. October 12.. I liked the idea behind.. Chronicle.. , but I'm not really a fan of the home video style of film making, so that kind of dimished this movie for me.. If you're ok with that sort of thing, though, this is a pretty good watch.. October 07.. Morning crankiness: why am I in receipt of physical phone books, and more to the point, why can't I opt out of receiving them?.. Hmm.. I missed this:.. Workgroup Manager.. This may be the user management tool I was looking for during previous crankiness.. Looking at setting up SPF records for myself also due to recent mishaps.. October 06.. Watched about half an hour of.. The Rocker.. before it degraded from mildly amusing to unwatchable dreck , after which we switched to.. Farewell, My Lovely.. which proved to be a much better choice.. Nicely done, and from recollection a pretty straightforward lift from the Chandler story.. October 04.. Right, server access restored.. September 30.. Continued broken: wifi sync appears to be failing intermittently, my laptop is having trouble holding open a remote desktop connection to the Mac Mini, webserver still can't be logged into due to busted ssh (if we were less diligent about keeping it patched, we might have a back door to exploit.. )..  ...   hasn't happened so far and the laptop's just sitting here waiting for me to tidy up.. September 24.. So last week I discovered that the server that handles my email wound up on a blacklist for reasons that are unclear.. I had a brief look over the weekend and then noticed that it was no longer blacklisted, possibly because it auto-expired or possibly because someone clicked things.. Then I started getting email about a PHP process that wouldn't start due to a missing shared library, and now the ssh server isn't letting anyone in (which means, incidentally, that if you can read this either the problem has been solved or I've moved servers).. Oh, and my ISP appears to have decided that today's a good day to refuse outbound email that doesn't come with a.. From:.. header for their own customer email domain.. t.. Oh, and it's raining.. September 23.. A bunch of logfile analysis leads me to conclude that a whole bunch of popular email software (exim, dovecot, mailman to name but three) whines a lot about things that don't really matter.. Attempting to install some updates on Mrs.. Waider's computer, and it tells me it's successfully installed them even though it hasn't, and the "Fix It" tool won't actually run.. Quite awesome user experience, this.. September 18.. Got a sizeable chunk of Finance::Bank::IE refactoring sorted out, after a couple of days of missing a very obvious failure to check a return code.. Some would say it serves me right for coding in.. Perl.. Now I need to figure out why my.. git push.. isn't working.. the diary proper.. /.. RSS feed..

  • Title: Which part of ([a-z]\s+[0-9][0-9]|[a-z][a-z]) didn't you understand?
    Descriptive info: Which part of ([a-z]\s+[0-9][0-9]|[a-z][a-z]) didn't you understand?.. So one day,.. Joe.. came to me and said, Waider, someone got mail about posting X to alt.. random.. newsgroup, and he says he didn't post it.. The post definitely came from here.. Any chance you could find out who forged the post?.. Sure, I'll give it a go.. So I looked at the message and checked when it was posted, and figured, okay, all I need to do is see what machine was using the news gateway at that time.. See, back then we ran the.. TIS.. firewall.. toolkit to allow assorted net access.. It's a pretty decent kit, but it logs stuff like this:.. May 8 16:27:55  ...   hosts to different directions.. So I thought:.. A little perl should fix this.. Uh-huh.. It did.. The part that does most of the exciting stuff looks like this:.. if (/^(\w+\s+[0-9]+\s+[0-9][0-9]:[0-9][0-9]:[0-9][0-9])\s+\w+\s+(plug|tn|ftp)-gw\[([0-9]+)\]: ((dis)?(connect|exit))(ed)? host=([^\/]+)\/([0-9.. ]+)( dest[^=]*=([^\s]+))?/) {.. which matches all the lines I wanted to know about, and made Joe's head explode as a side effect.. No, I didn't come up with it off the top of my head, nor can I recall how long it took to.. evolve.. But hey.. It does the job, as I expected it would.. Oh yeah.. We found out whose machine had done the posting, but we couldn't pin down who had been using it at the time.. So much for logging..

    Descriptive info: Again with the partying at.. , although this is the quietest I've seen it in the last couple of years.. Our prime activity for the night was to make a Red Bull bottle float.. We made a big bunch of balloons.. No, a BIG bunch.. Then the engineering started.. More balloons were required.. Am I holding the bottle UP  ...   didn't quite make it fly..
