I set up git on my FreeBSD box so that I can commit my code to GitHub. Today I tried to scp some stuff over and I was met with this rather unhelpful message: [email protected] ~/Projects/code $ scp -r [email protected]:~/code/agnostic . Password: ps: Process environment requires procfs(5) Initializing new SSH agent… [email protected] ~/Projects/code $ I…
Flu shot and bizarre network issues
This last weekend I had drill and the medics gave us the seasonal-flu mist-vaccine. It’s the one where they squirt gooey, inactive virus up your nose. I’ve had the vaccine before without any adverse side-effects. Yeah, not this time. I got the shot on Saturday and I was fine on Sunday. Not so on Monday….
Qwest charges a “setup fee” for static IP’s
Two weeks ago, I finally got my DSL upgrade from a measly 3Mbps to a whopping (for me) 12Mbps. I have been on 3Mbps since 2004, and the difference is amazing. I’m able to stream HD quality stuff from Netflix all the time! Qwest set me up with an Actiontec Q1000 router/modem, which as far…
I added another wallpaper of Shakira. I have no life. It is official. I hope I get that job I applied for… It’s Web Development with PHP and MySQL… along with working on UNIX machines and network stuff. Fun stuff…
Sharity-Lite stopped working… No, wait… Actually it might have been my Windows machine. Ever since I installed that piece-of-crap Xilix ISE and ModelSim software my computer has been acting weird.

Got CUPS working. I really should document my work… smb://[email protected]/HPDeskjet812C… Anyways, all I have left to do is set up the colour scheme and stuff like that… of KDE… and install Mozilla again… Fun… Fun…
Got samba working on my FreeBSD machine. Now I can access NFS shares from my XP box.
Fixed Sharity Light Problem
Fixed the problem. I had (wrongly) set the hostname for my XP box as 10.0.0.1. D’OH! It should have been 10.0.0.2. Works perfectly now!
How hard can installing a new OS get? Pretty damn hard. It took three hard disks and two other OS’es to get it right. Huh what? Yeah you heard me… I wanted switch from Windows XP Home to Windows XP Professional. So I pull out a pre-activated copy (muhaha) that my buddy gave me a…
It works!! It works!! The machine wasn’t able to resolve IP addresses. So I added the IP of the nameserver (that I got from my WinXP box my using nslookup) to /etc/resolv.conf and now it works. =D I’m sooo happy!!
