New Blog

I'm going to try out a blog on my own for a while, see if I can get it customized at all, and whether I like it better than lj. My guess is I'll be mirroring most of the content between the two for a while anyway.

I'm still in the process of moving blog posts over, and recreating all the old content on the new site, but I've decided to put it live anyway.

xrayspx's picture is retarded

[music | Gabby La La - Be Careful What You Wish For...]

I guess it's determined by its users, but any page that lists Gaby Lala as being similar in the slightest to Veruca Salt, Sheryl Crow, or Joan Osbourne has serious flaws.

Secondly, why do I live on the wrong side of the continent to see any of the artists I've listened to tonight?

Web-Designer "Defined"

[music | Bjork - Storm]

Why do companies constantly classify programmer/DBA/admins as "Web Designers"?

I listen to entirely too much music. You may browse my collection or visit my profile to get an idea of what I like.

Cisco CSS Toy

[music | Bauhaus - Dark Entries (Live)]

This is the first of a few tools I have to release in the coming couple of weeks, mainly involving Cisco's CSS product. The purpose of me writing them is that Cisco's web interface to the CSS is both a terrible user experience and has shown itself to be vulnerable to trivial attacks in the past (in a security sense). I don't want to run the web gui on my CSS's, and most of our admins were terrified of the command line. So I wrote a bunch of tools to help do their jobs, without the possibility of screwing up the load balancers.

Come on Apache...

[music | Sleater-Kinney]

Today's been fun. Yesterday a site run by one of my friends ( was shut down by its ISP because they got a large influx of traffic, and the ISP panicked.

New Toy

[music | Throwing Muses - Fall Down]

Can you guys knock something around for me? Some of you have seen it before, but check out Collection Browser. So it's a collection of my CDs, with extra Amazon-Link goodness. I hope that works, I have little idea how that works, but it searches for them anyway, so as far as a user is concerned, it works fine.

[music | Killing Joke - Mass (Campaign Collection Mix)]

I have to fly to Romania, or possibly Russia, but probably Romania. I need to find the guy who wrecked my holiday weekend.

Silly Phishers/Spammers. The bummer is he probably has a nicer car than mine. Your Benz might be faster than my Toyota, but your fast-flux DNS will never be faster than my ability to pick out one "wrong looking" TCP connection out of a pool of 50,000 legitimate ones.

Who wants to come, boots required.
