Dragged kicking and screaming into the century of the fruitbat

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

With apologies to Terry Prachett, I feel like I being dragged (dragging myself?) into the Century of the Fruitbat.  As I mentioned a long time ago, I don’t care for Facebook.  I prefer my blog.  That said, many of my friends and most of my family use Facebook.  So I’m going to start a bit […]

DDoS-ing good policy

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

In computer security, one of the most difficult and annoying problems is the distributed denial of service attack (DDoS).  The idea behind a DDoS attack is straight forward: the attacker tries to prevent legitimate use of the service by using a large number of other computers.  Usually these other computers have been compromised (hacked) and […]

Vint Cerf called . . .

… and he and Tim Berners-Lee want you to stop breaking the Internet. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had several occasions to be invited into someone’s walled garden on the internet.  You know the places.  Lovely little sites that are entirely self-contained and which you can’t access unless you are a member?  In […]

blog your type?

Friday, November 21st, 2008

This is neat.  Typealyzer claims to examine a blog (or presumably any webpage) in order to identify the Myers-Briggs type of the author.  It correctly identifies me as an INTP, but doesn’t seem to get etselec. Adidas neo Thankspring wedding dresses uk deep, hermes bags noisy burberry handbags peach, suns jerseys apricot, louboutins pear, no […]

at home in the (technical) universe

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Some recent (somewhat) technical notes: A while back, I swapped the dead harddrive from my ipod with a compact flash card.  Unfortunately, at the time, the biggest (affordable) compact flash was 16 GB, so I lost about half the capacity from my ipod.  Not a huge problem, but it became more of one as I […]

Computer maps

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

A few years ago, K was taking some GIS (geographic information systems) classes.  That was a lot of fun for me since GIS is something I’ve poked at on and off for quite some time.  Back when I was first playing with GIS, GRASS was probably the best (and may still be) open-source GIS system […]

Annotate Flickr

Saturday, October 4th, 2008

A while back, Luis Villa asked about a script to add creative commons licensing information to an image.  I just wrapped up a first cut at a GreaseMonkey script to do exactly that.  Hopefully someone will find it useful. With the release of Terminator Salvation (aka Terminator With Batman and Transformers!) we’d like to take […]

E-book blogging

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

I’ve had the Sony Reader now for about a week.  In that time, I’ve taken it on a plane trip, read three full books, multiple days worth of the NY Times and I’m in the middle of two books right now.  Observations so far: The electronic paper is very readable.  On my plane trip, I […]
