IP & Pictures

I updated the getIp script I used to update my remote IP information with the ifconfig type resolve and thats about it for today 🙂

Now, as for the pictures..
I just discovered the bluetooth in Ubuntu Ibex is broken (again) :/ crap! (They re on my cell) Anywho, this is my temporary server room in the basement. They will get their special final place under the basement stairs in about a month. Right now there s the Soekris router (temporarilly with switch on top but that one ll go once I find the time to finalise the full NIC config. There s 8 ports, that should do ;)), connected to the power management sispm block over USB and in the back, the old fileserver, Kabouter.. a prehistoric machine that still chugs along & does its dues as a fileserver 😉 (Its processor speed doesnt even break the ol’ gigahertz barrier..)

Admittedly, it doesnt look like much, but I dont have to stand the noise anymore, I can power the fileserver up & down as I see fit without leaving my computer; I can reset the telemodem without going to the basement, hell I can even cut myself off from the network completely by disabling the switch (yeah, thats usefull *rolleyes*) So – Hooray!

& finally.. The linux in exile guy makes a decent point in his latest post, that resolves about the following Great computer wisdom..

Broken gets fixed
Shoddy lasts forever

& now I’m REALLY calling it a day
