Here I find myself once again two days away from a deadline and sick as a horse. Not fun! Must have eaten something off……..
So in between coding on Bezerker, my Web Server in C, and signing up for classes, i get some solace from the wise words of some random blogger:
“We need to slow down, think about our priorities, and ask ourselves what the point is of an expensive kitchen remodel when we don’t take the time to cook, and why we work so hard that we never have time to see the people we love,” she said. “Maybe if we traded some of our discretionary income for discretionary time, that would be the true luxury.”
I still find this one of the most descriptive songs I know:
Jet Life, by Plush:
Jet Life i’m living live like a rockstar how i really want to go far from here
cool cats riding the town like they own it that is something i will never get oh, i will never get that
and i do believe i do believe no-one feels this pain inside of me
dead tired, dead tired im dead tired of all of this dead tired, dead tired im dead tired of all of this dead tired, dead tired dead tired of all of this
jet life, slow life picking up the broken pieces of my life tentative hesitant a bit God it all looks so positive
its a shame about the world though lost dreams and no tomorrows its a shame its such a stuff-up you know it wouldn’t be if we weren’t all so stuck up
cause we know nothing at all if we didn’t realize that we’re so small one shake of the earth one spin of the sea we’re squashed up bugs beneath God’s feet
all i am is a believer, all i am is a believer are you a believer? we’re all just dreamers
dead tired, dead tired im dead tired of all of this dead tired, dead tired im dead tired of all of this dead tired, dead tired im dead tired of all of this dead tired, dead tired im dead tired of all of this
while the rest of the world is fighting in a war that no-one survives in young men are sift before they’ve even lived well that doesn’t seem fair to me
and daddy’s at home, he’s angry cause he’s Son’s no longer his property well man you had the wrong perceptions cause he was never your possession
and women walk around with mace in their bags just a piece of meat waiting to be tagged
well i can’t believe this happens in my land i can’t believe the value of the Rand
oh jet life, everybody’s striving for a good life and nothing’s gonna happen if you sti around and waste time you’ve gotta move you’ve gotta prove you’ve gotta stay humble or this world will surely crumble
I’ve been working on 2draw.net for a while now with Marcello, and one of our issues in managing packages on a CentOS installation. YUM seems to have become almost a standard in the RPM distribution world, so we followed suite and unpacked this little python app of magic.
I’ve been battling to get the latest MySQL version up and running, so i thought i’d post up the first few steps to update MySQL through YUM.
I’m using the CentOS repository for YUM. To get the latest MySQL, you first need to enable the CentOS PLUS repository. <br />Find your yum repository directory:<br />cd /etc/yum.repos.d<br />emacs CentOS-Base.repo<br />Find the [centosplus] section<br />Make sure the following flags are set:<br /><br />enables=1<br />gpgcheck=1<br />
Once this is done, you can go ahead and install mysql:
I’ve been playing around with an ubuntu linux server connecting our two apartments together, and the aim of this port is to explain how i’m going about routing between two subnets, each with their own default internet router. I’m using the power of DHCP3 on my ubuntu box to set routing tables on all clients connecting to the network to properly route through the correct gateways.
The network topography looks like this:
Internet <--> [router a] <--> LAN 0 <--> [Linux Server] <-> LAN 1 <--> [router b] <--> Internet
So, hosts in LAN 0 must use router a to get to the internet, and hosts in LAN 1 must use router b to get to the internet, but hosts on both LANs must use the linux server to get to each other. Thus, the server must do IP forwarding / IP routing, and the clients needs the proper routing tables. To get around the dumbness of the DLink router a and b, i’m running DHCP3 on the server to hand out routing and IP information to clients on both networks.
The resources i’ve found useful in setting up this config is:
