NFTables To Replace iptables In the Linux Kernel

rmadmin Re:again? (235 comments) You also forgot some biggies, like Netflix, oh and Apache themselves. Sampling an OS's usage numbers off of how many public facing web servers are out there will give you very biased results. I have two FreeBSD servers running OpenBGPd and OpenOSPFd, and two that are NFS servers, there is absolutely no web server on them. They are ROCKS of stability. This is just FreeBSD, a partner ISP I work with runs OpenBSD route reflectors.

New "Spear Phishing" Attacks Target IT Admins

rmadmin Re:Try "fishing for noobs", not admins. (134 comments)

First thing I'd do is go "OH! IPs!" and hit arin. Then I'd go "RIPE? I don't f-ing think so!" Then again, I'm goofy about looking up IPs all the time. :D

YouTube To Kill IE6 Support On March 13

rmadmin Re:One has to wonder (282 comments)

No one in their right mind, except all the clueless users out there that haven't been forced into upgrades. I find customers running ie6 all the time, and I promptly run updates.

DHCP Management Across a Diversified Network?

rmadmin Re:I have the solution you need... (100 comments)

I concur.. I have over 2000 hosts covered with my DHCP server, 24 hour lease, the server never breaks 0.00 loads. We also use DHCP-Relay in about 5 places across the network. Its tasty :)

Disney Strikes Against Net Neutrality

rmadmin Re:Well, the cable industry should know. (442 comments)

You're saying you can't entertain three screaming kids without Disney? That's pretty sad. I've entertained more than three children on many occasions.

Teen Diagnoses Her Own Disease In Science Class

rmadmin Strange... (582 comments)

Not really my area of expertise... but where/how did she get this tissue? Extracting intestinal samples doesn't sound like something we did in high school...

US Switch To DTV Countdown Begins

rmadmin Re:Curious side-effect of the DTV switchover (293 comments)

In my jetta, I can pick up the audio from our local channel 6 station in the 80's. Think 87.7ish. :) RF can bleed a tad when you crank up the transmit power.

Murder Victim's Claim Denied for 'Pre-Existing Condition'

rmadmin Re:The pre-existing condition is a claim of fraud. (16 comments)

He couldn't afford a test but he could afford the insurance? Why is everyone assuming that he doesn't have money if he's a junkie.. I've known a few junkies with some serious cash.

Disclaimer: I really don't know what I'm talking about, just hit some weird red flags. :)

Build Your Own SATA Hard Drive Switch

rmadmin This is hardly extreme. (131 comments)

This is a power switch. Nothing more. Certainly not a sata switch. As much as I love soldering.. I'll stick with grub for this one. Then I can at least share my media across OSes.

Slumdog Millionaire Takes Home 8 Oscars

rmadmin Re:Not news for nerds. (317 comments)

I concur. The terms geek and nerd have gone too mainstream. I used to get made fun of because I was a nerd, now everyone calls themselves a geek or a nerd. "Look i got a new [TV|ipod|cellphone], I don't know how to hook it up and can barely use it, but I'm such a geek for getting it!" The hell with that, screw all you posers. Go back to being wiggers or something.

Utah Mulls a Database of Bar Customers

I disagree. They obviously don't have time to commit crimes when they have 20 wives nagging at them.

Torvalds Rejects One-Size-Fits-All Linux

rmadmin Re:Both! (791 comments)

YEAH! WOOO!!! Ok.. how do I install these RPMs? You know.. for the handful of things that I run that ONLY come in RPM format?

Trust me.. we still need those niche dists. Maybe not all of them, but many of them.

Now don't get me wrong. I use ubuntu in a few places, but as long as Cpanel is RPM based, I will continue to run RH/Cent boxen too.

rmadmin writes ""A federal judge in Detroit on Thursday struck down the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance program, calling it unconstitutional and an illegal abuse of presidential power. The ruling marked the first court rejection of the controversial monitoring program and amounted to a rebuke of the Bush administration's tactics in the war on terrorism." I for one am glad to see some checks and balances finaly being applied. I think its high time we had more."
