It took the whole day, but I finally got kexec/kdump all configured and working, and I finally triggered the hard to hit race to crash and create a core dump, that I would look at this morning, only to find out that I never compiled the kernel with DEBUG_INFO set! Grumble.

Actually, I've found lots of bugs using kexec/kdump. It's just that the current box that was triggering this particular bug hasn't been set up for it properly.

I received an email with:

 *Subject: Your Hover password was reset*

And thinking, hmm, I have two web sites through hover. Damn phishing is focusing well on me. Thus, I clicked on the link to see where it would take me, but interesting enough, it took me to my real hover account.

That's funny.

I then opened a private window and went to my hover account manually, and sure enough it too wants me to reset my password. Looks like something happened over at hover.com and they are asking people to reset their passwords.

This wasn't spam nor a phishing technique folks.... (or it's a damn good one and I was just fooled!)

Just got a new desktop for work. Of course it comes with Windows 7, so the first thing I need to do is to shrink the partition so that I can install Linux.

Why keep Windows? Well, I use to just blow it away, but now that the installation disks come as recovery partitions, and the "Windows Tax" has already been paid for, I've decided not to just delete it anymore. Also, this box came with two 1 TB hard drives which I'll run in RAID 1, but I really don't need that much disk space.

Now the trick is to get the Windows system partition to a minimum. All these damn unmovable files makes that a bit pain in the ass. I finally found that I needed to delete Norton Antivirus to rid the files that were preventing Windows from going less that 458GBs. It's now down to 30GBs which is fine for me to waste.

I'll also need to get the latest Fedora PXE boot up on my dhcp/tftp server working.

This should be interesting. I just hope that it doesn't make it harder to do a quick switch when traveling between countries

Apple and Samsung are working with the GSMA to kill off the traditional SIM card.

Ever go to bed thinking about that tough problem trying to come up with an algorithm, then wake up at 4am with a solution?

Screw going back to sleep until that algorithm is written to code :-p

The issue is, my "dream" got me down the path to a possible solution, but implementing it seems to be a game of whack a mole. Something that will not be going out for review till I have a full grasp of the situation :-)

I love it when the email I used for stripconfig.pl (stripconfig@goodmis.org), aka localmodconfig, gets spam....

"Hello stripconfig!!! My name is Evgeniya, to me of 25 years.
 I live in Russia.
I saw your your profile and you interested me very much!
I want to find the man of my dream."

This is a common mistake among kernel developers.

10 years ago I would never have thought to see Microsoft have a booth at a Linux event giving out Microsoft penguins.

Well, I just read this, and now I'm hungry, thinking about pita with hummus. You seem to be an evil magician.

Bah, the encrypted USB jumpdrive I store my gpg private key on just died. Thank God I made a backup on another encrypted drive. Now only if I can figure out what the passphrase I used for that backup!
