    History Repeating: Red!

    Hello all: In other news, one of my favorite video game rock bands (if such a thing exists), The Megas, released a new album to finish off their Megaman 3 saga.  It's quite, quite awesome, and the lyrics point a lot to the Protoman story arc.   Anyways, check it out if you need some more...

    No Shave November?

    @xnopasaranx It is all about efficiency and optimization. Just imagine how much time I save! Though the same attitude drives me mad on crowded sidewalks. Optimal pathing is hard.

    No Shave November?

    I haven't shaved in about five years.  Nobody doubts my Unix skills anymore.

    Selling my Classic Pandora

    Hello all: First, you guys rock.  I occasionally swing back by the boards and you guys just keep doing your thing, which is awesome. Second, I'm selling my classic Pandora.  Though I love it and have many fond memories with it, I just don't use it anymore, so I figured I'd sell it here.  It's...

    Release truecrypt port

    Ah, okay. I'll have to try it sometime (though I rarely take my Pandora out of my apartment). I'll give it a go sometime. :D

    Release truecrypt port

    Though I'm late to the party, I'm happy to see this: http://repo.openpandora.org/?page=detail&app=TrueCrypt-hmc. Has anyone done any performance metrics against this? Encryption makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. :)

    Mini-review: My first impressions (after 4 days)

    Eh, it's my poor netbook. Tweaking the blocksize gives better results, too.

    Mini-review: My first impressions (after 4 days)

    Ha, okay. Regardless of what an ISP could give you, I couldn't imagine anything handling such a transfer well (even dd-ing from /dev/zero to /dev/null tops out at 240MB/second on my laptop).

    My wireless is good, too, but is 500MB/sec a typo?

    Painful deaths(games) youd like to see for hated game characters

    The demon knights in the original Dragon Warrior always scared the piss out of me as a kid.

    [SOLVED] Broken Root? .bashrc not loading

    Try catting your /etc/passwd file. Home directory information should be stored there for all the users.

    [SOLVED] Broken Root? .bashrc not loading

    Generally (and I'd assume for the Pandora) the root environment is stored in /root/.bashrc, not /home/root/.bashrc. I think the old timey reason behind it is that often on systems you have separate / and /home partitions, so if /home gets borked, you can still do root stuff. Also, you can...

    any official news?

    He would have more time to get things done if we slowed down the rotation of the earth.

    any official news?

    The scary thing is that he doesn't spend all that much time sleeping at the moment. I, on the other hand, got probably 8 hours of sleep last night.
