  1. damn numbers

    The only three numbers in computer science that matter: 0, 1, and infinity. As far as my life goes, I can't do everything, so I need to choose what one thing I'm going to devote my time to, or I'll end up with nothing.

  2. wireless rocks

    I've been playing with a bunch of wireless stuff recently, and I've found out it rocks. I have a Lucent Orinoco (WaveLan) card that works beautifully under both Win2k and Linux; and I have a Raylink card on the way as well. I've set up an 802.11b network in …

  4. linux mail clients

    Well, I can never seem to find a mail client I like. I'm currently trying out Mozilla Mail again - but I needed GPG support. Hopefully Enigmail will do the job for me. Evolution is just to big and slow. Sigh.

  6. wireless

    so wireless nics in linux isn't as easy as it seems. Win2k was a snap - stick the card in and voila! it works. Linux is being a little more difficult. I'm following the guide at O'Reilly, and I'm waiting for my server to reboot right now. I hope it finishes …

  7. phpAIM (AIM is (tm) AOL)

    This is what I wrote to my SourceForge account about the development of phpAIM (AIM is (tm) AOL).

    Unfortunately, development has stalled before it really started. I was originally going to design a PHP script that modeled the Perl Net::AOLIM module, but I think I'd rather write an extension …

  9. ahh - sleep!

    I feel much better today. Went running around with Dennis today, and got a compact flash reader and 350va APC Back-UPS for $30 each! Not a bad deal, I though. Of course, I'm staying up way to late tonight, and It's gonna ruin my whole week, so I best get …

  13. Stupid Mountains

    Despite having renewed hope in wireless networking between [Brady]'s, [Dennis]'s, and my houses after finding pretty cheap 2.4GHz Antennas, [Brady] and I were spoiled once again by distance and LoS (Line of Sight) factors. If we could just see each other's houses...

  14. PHP scripting

    You know, I really think PHP could be a really good scripting language, but there are definitely some things holding it back.

    For one, there is no support for SIGnals from the OS. Things like SIGKILL and SIGHUP. These would be really useful. I love PHP's native database support and …

    You know, I was wondering if html worked in these messages.
