2015-12-29 Difftree(dt) v0.5.8 has been released
I just finished updating difftree to play nicely with ATIME and to report on changes. This come in handy
when you need to see when a file was accessed across a series of time periods. Run difftree every day and
it is simple to see what has happened in a directory tree over time.
2015-08-23 Log Templater (tmpltr) has moved from SourceForge to GitHub
After being forced to use GitHub to help port passivedns to OpenBSD, it is clear that GitHub is far better
The machine includes an Atom D525, 4Gb Ram, 4xUSB, 4x1Gb Ethernet, RS232 and room for one 2.5" HDD:
I added a 2TB HDD for $110 and an extra external heat-sink for $8. Out the door for $440.
2013-04-03 Geeking out with Marcus Ranum - Take 2
My last session
with Marcus in February may have lacked "Marcus", but there was enough participation and positive feedback that he
asked me to come back and have a more detailed discussion. This time, we had a chance to dig much deeper into the topic and
came up with a couple of interesting ideas that we are now percolating on. Perhaps this will lead to a new tool in our kit.
2013-02-19 Geeking out with Marcus Ranum
I was looking forward to spending some quality
time with Marcus today talking about logging
and log analysis. Unfortunately, Marcus fell victim to the Webcast gremlins at a hotel in Germany and
was not able to join me. I still had a good time talking with Allan
about all things "logging" but I am looking forward to geeking our with Marcus some other time.
