New gnumonks.org mail server online
Recently I pointed out that I'm about to move my personal mail away from KNF.
The new server ganesha.gnumonks.org is now co-located at noris.net, where netfilter.org is hosted, too.
The netfilter and gnumonks machines are within a private VLAN, with a dedicated
firewall in front of them.
Putting that machine in place turned out to be come much more difficult than
expected. It seems that Intel recently decided to give their e100/e1000 chips
new PCI device ID's, which in turn means that old (e.g. Debian woody install
kernels ) Linux drivers don't recognize them. So in the end I had to install
SuSE into a swap partition and debootstrap the system from there. *sigh*.
Thanks to the noris.net crew for their assistance, I know they spent way too
much time with me considering I bought their smallest entry-level housing
Tiramisu - Why is it so hard to get?
Another dinner at the local Italian food place. Again I asked for Tiramisu
(which is on their regular menu), and they didn't have it. This would make it
a total 12% availability of Tiramisu over the last year. Every time I go to
this place (which is quite frequent), I ask for Tiramisu - and still they don't
bother regularly preparing one.
And it's not even only at that place. It's almost the same with all Italian
restaurants, judging by my past experience. Why don't they get it? They won't
sell anything by just putting it on the menu - they actually need to have it
Added a new 'licensing' section on the netfilter homepage
Since recently more and more vendors seem to disobey the terms of the GNU GPL,
I decided to put some more detailed information on how to comply with this
license online. It was written for the netfilter/iptables project, but should
apply to any other GPL licensed free software project. You can find the section here.
