(12/20/12) Larry Correia on the current wave of Gun Control hysteria. A must-read.

(11/14/08) My revision of Pastor Martin Niemöller's First they came poem: The lament of the AHSA supporter
Gun owners cannot afford to fall for the divide-and-conquer strategies of those who would disarm the People.

(04/20/08) In response to the utter idiocy of the Eastern Tennessee State University administration, which thinks stickers will deter someone intent on murder:
Large decals have been placed on the doors of every building to warn students of six years imprisonment and a maximum fine of $3,000 if a firearm is brought onto school premises. The decal also states that those who have the appropriate concealed handgun license are not excluded from those penalties. Although these are viewed as helpful and useful changes ...
I've updated my Gun-Free Zone signs... Stickers are available on Zazzle.

(4/18/08) Ten inches of snow in one afternoon is not a big deal during winter most places, though in the puget sound we only get snow like that every few years. It is a big deal when the afternoon is in mid-April... 7:30 PM 04/18/08
(2/16/08) Okay, enough gloom. We get beautiful sunrises here sometimes...
Sorry about the bamboo obscuring the heart of the sunrise, the shot was kinda rushed.

(04/26/07 - updated 2/16/08) My take on the VT tragedy, the shootings in the Westboro Mall, and other similar tragedies. The solution to violent gun crime is not victim disarmament.

(01/20/07) In response to Microsoft proposing their "Open" XML document file format as an ISO standard, I have written a letter of protest to the members of ANSI responsible for representing the USA to the ISO. See Groklaw and Andy Updegrove's blog at the ConsortiumInfo.org standards consortia website for more information about this blatant bid to corrupt the international standards process to protect Microsoft's virtual monopoly on office software.

(01/07/07) Yet more cat pix (from the archives): Kali Miao approves of the laser printer.

(12/15/06) I've updated my Scanner Tarpit HOWTO to reflect the work I've been doing with LaBrea to tarpit spambots and other spammers.

(07/31/06) More accolades for my wife's skills in paper-hole-punching-at-a-distance... A Good Day at the Range #3

(07/22/06) I took my sweet time writing these up...
A Good Day at the Range #1 and A Good Day at the Range #2
...wherein I brag about my wife's marksmanship.

(07/09/06) Per a request thrown to the winds on a.s.r: the OADS patch (visit the Anvil Chorus page for more images)   OADS patch   ...and the patch on a mug, perfect for drinking coffee while negotiating with vendors or answering another annoying support request: OADS mug

(06/30/03) Yet more cat pix: Ziba in her summer 'do

(05/27/02) Yet more cat pix: Cassiopeia being a ditz (yes, she really did look like that...)

(04/07/02) the Scanner Tarpit HOWTO

(01/01/02) Yet more cat pix:

(The Cat Vortex is what your cat is watching when she's staring intently at a blank spot on the wall. Cats find it fascinating, but humans can't understand what all the fuss is about.)

(12/15/01) Here's my letter to the DOJ about the proposed Microsoft settlement.

Security resources

the Email Sanitizer

Do you administer an email server? If so, you need a way to protect your users against worms, buffer-overflow attacks on their mailers, and social-engineering attacks on their trust. The Email Sanitizer installs on your Procmail-capable mail gateway and lets you detect and block these attacks. Don't rely only on the end user's virus protection, which is reactive (virus updates appear after the virus is already spreading) and may be out-of-date (or nonexistent).

Visit the Enhancing E-Mail Security With Procmail page. [ HTTP Mirror 1 (US: WA) | HTTP Mirror 2 (EU: NO) | HTTP Mirror 3 (EU: NL) | HTTP Mirror 4 (AU) ]

Linux Firewall and Masquerade resources

Linux 2.2 VPN Masquerade

[ HTTP Mirror 1 (US: WA) | HTTP Mirror 2 (EU: NO) | HTTP Mirror 3 (EU: NL) ]

Linux 2.2 kernel support for masquerading IPsec and PPTP Virtual Private Network traffic. Now you can securely work from home or from across the country via the Internet, while still allowing simultaneous Internet access for the rest of your local net.

The ipfwadm Dotfile Module

[ FTP Mirror 1 ]

A GUI front end for managing a Linux 2.0.x firewall for your home or small business network. Improve the security of your Internet access with minimal hassle.

Access the Internet from several computers at the same time through only one IP address and telephone line or ISDN/DSL/Cable Modem. Great for homes where two (or more) people want to surf at the same time, or if you want to telecommute while the kids play! You should also take a look at the Linux IP Masquerade Resource page.

I used to produce the JMS CIS Digest.

My résumé in standard single-page format.

Other things I do:

Here's a (rather old now) picture of me, a picture of me and my kite (which is for sale, contact me if you're interested), and a link to my wife's jewelry and art business page if you're interested...

Here's my wish list if you feel the urge to send me a gift... :)
