Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Time to start using the site…

Now that I’ve got a working mobile posting system, and have started seriously on the pastimes, I may be able (and willing) to add posts a bit more often! If the wind is willing to play fair, I should be able to get some photos, videos and GPS logs from the kite buggy soon. I […]

Just a quick update

Just making a quick update to test 2 new toys:

1) WordMobi on the N96 – so far it seems to work well, although I need to verify the image scaling abilities. 2) A nice little Bluetooth keyboard (from Tesco of all places!) It’s a PS3 keypad, but once I installed the Nokia keyboard app, […]

Server move

If you can see this post, the new server is now running properly! :)

The new server is running Lenny, and is actually running on identical hardware (but with more RAM). The move to Lenny was a clean install, and resulted in some minor pain:

While migrating user mail there were some changes in UID/GID […]

CCTV @ Sainsbury’s filling station

I just want to commit to pixels exactly how disgusted I am at the state of so-called security at the local Sainsbury’s filling station. On the 7th of March 2007 at 21:00 I went to the filling station at the Kirkcaldy Sainsbury’s store, to buy some milk. This is now likely to be the most […]

Testing some new stuff

Just discovered a couple of useful things, that I’m trying out right now. First off is the Performancing for Firefox (PFF) extension. This seems to be a rather nice addition, and if it works well enough, I may just add it to my Portable Firefox kit. At the same time, I’m trying to persuade my […]

SPF Finally implemented

Finally got round to implementing SPF (Sender Policy Framework for the uninitiated) on the mail server. This should hopefully cut down on the recent bursts of “backscatter” from spam. I am also planning on adding SPF records for the main Demon account, as that was badly hit with backscatter from MyDoom.A way back, and may […]

Exim alias lookups

After much pulling of hair, gnashing of teeth, searching on Google, etc… I have finally got the /etc/aliases file under control :) As some background, all mail historically went to the one mailbox, and was separated out by the client, and all was good with the world. Then I set up a proper mail server, […]

New server

Finally got round to setting up the new server for my home network (also hosting this site) after far too many hand-crafted changes to the original E-Smith SME Server that was in use.

Settled on a proper distro this time (Debian), and planned it carefully to allow smooth migration from one server to the other. […]
