So Dennis? (whose name doesn’t appear anywhere on his blog except for in the URL) wrote a cool bash script to create aliases for every host in your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file. I found some bugs/problems so I spiffed it up a bit. As the comments say, you should pipe the output to sort(1). I’ve tried to […]
A few things to wrap up. The Stress on Programmers Slides Man oh man I wish there was a recording of the talk. I looked over the slides and they don’t do the talk justice by themselves as one might expect. Glenn posted some comments that I think have the slides for the XMPP talk […]
A while ago, Glenn and I saw Jose Gonzalez in Atlanta. It was a great show. He played this song then, but didn’t have a name for it. At the show it was much more intense, iirc. I wish I could get a copy of the board recording for that show. I really love the […]
Today’s keynotes didn’t do much for me. The first guy was trying to justify intellectual property as a concept. Epic fail. The rest weren’t really all that noteworthy other than a good message to stop whinging. I’m a bad whinger. Two things I’ve noticed about the conference so far: For supposedly smart people, everyone seems […]
Breakfast was tasty, but the good grub was dwarfed by the conversation at the table. I sat down at a table of four or five guys and no one seemed to know each other. These two guys who were both in their mid 40’s kept trying to out-geek each other. It was really quite unintentionally […]
I gave myself plenty of time to get to the ATL airport and I’m very glad I did. It ended up taking around 3 hours just for the drive. Once I got there, all of the airport parking-lots were full. I eventually found a place to park in Park & Ride, got on the bus […]
Line Rider ‘Transcendental™’ HD by TechDawg from TechDawg on Vimeo. Pretty kickass if you ask me, which I notice you didn’t!
This guy demonstrates the power of Christianity by electrocuting a pickle. Stay tuned next week when he demonstrates the power of prayer by waterboarding a bratwurst!
In my old blog I hinted about a project that I’d been working on and was hoping to release. It’s getting closer to release, so Happy and I spent part of the day looking at “project” software. That’s some crappy nomenclature, but I lack a better term. I’m referring to software like Trac, Redmine, Jira, […]
I finally switched away from my home-grown blog software. It lived for over 5 years, I’m proud to say. Nothing about it was failing, I just got tired of extending it and if you’re not growing you’re dying. My plan is to migrate the old stuff that wasn’t just crap filler over to this blog […]
