2600 Hz - not Mhz.

Puppet Labs' Razor provisioning project is about to be completely redone.

"This knowledge has brought us to the conclusion that Razor's community and future development are best served by a rewrite of the current code base. The rewrite will carry the important and unique features of Razor forward, such as node discovery via a Microkernel, provisioning based off tagging nodes and policy, and flexibility in controlling the provisioning process. It will also change the code base in a way that we feel makes Razor more supportable and maintainable."
The road forward for Razor, Daniel Pittman, 7/12/13 1:55 PM, Dear all, During it's fairly short lifespan so far, Razor has shown that there is considerable demand for a policy-driven provisioning tool based on discovery of nodes. The thriving, and growing, community, and the fact that other ...

We've won eight R&D 100 awards (a.k.a. Oscars of Innovation)!! Among them are a virus-based electricity generator and a material that will boost power storage in batteries by 30 percent. Which one is your favorite? http://t.co/KFfgpwQVPB

Google Keep Keyboard Shortcuts

Google Keep has quite a few Keyboard Shortcuts in the Google Drive Web Application, that can be used. Nice to have J/K around and C for create is also working as in GMail and the slash / for searching and the pound sign # for deleting notes. And last but not least, there is Ctrl-g to switch between Grid and List view.
After having some hickups last night, while rolling out, it seems to work now, quite well. At the moment I am missing the formatting options, as in G+ and drag and draw of images, but the feature of taking voice notes is very good.

Do you use #IPMI to manage your servers? Then read this security notice from @USCERT_gov& the linked articles (some of which are quite entertaining). Some nasty problems, including one trivial way to bypass IPMI authentication using #cipherzero

http://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA13-207A
Attackers can easily identify and access systems that run IPMI and are connected to the Internet. It is important to restrict IPMI access to specific management IP addresses within an organization and preferably separated into a separate LAN segment.

#FreeBSD # & #Fortran, together at last.

-----

There is a new mailing list : FreeBSD-Fortran.

The list is for discussion of Fortran related ports on FreeBSD: compilers, libraries, scientific and engineering applications from laptops to HPC clusters.

Topics for discussion might include:
- better integration of fortran ports, i.e. compilers libraries and end user applications
- maintenance of unmaintained fortran related ports
- user experiences of FreeBSD Fortran environment
- porting new fortran libraries

More ideas for FreeBSD Fortran are here: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-doc/2013-June/022145.html

You can subscribe to this list at: https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-fortran Anton

Question on #serverfault "What file transfer protocols can be used for PXE booting besides TFTP?" (I do know about using #ipxe to load data over HTTP, but I'm curious about the default PXE roms on most NICs).

You know you're in trouble when you Google for a solution to your technical problem and the only results are your own unanswered questions posted on various sites.

#firefox on #android users: have you noticed that latest FF update includes 8MB of fonts that cannot be moved to the sdcard? 8MB is larger then the typical Android app. Come vote for http://bugzil.la/878674 , and thanks to the Firefox developers for listening. #armv6

I got food poisoning here from a chicken sandwich, as did my 3 year old daughter. Stay away.

We've been here a couple times, and have always had a fine time. The prices are reasonable. We prefer this to Berkeley Sauna on Acton and The Hot Tubs The Sauna is an old (est. 1934) Finish-style spa, with open-air, wooden hot-tubs and strong jets. The tubs have a special jet which sprays down from the ceiling-- this provides a spectacular massage. Not to hard, not too soft. The facilities are a little run down, but still quite enjoyable. The staff aren't spectacular, but they are friendly. Unlike the other reviewers, we've never had a bad incident with the staff.

Ikea is a mixed bag. The stores can be overwhelming, and customer service is almost non-existent. But they provide many decent products at affordable prices. We keep coming back for more-- we just try to avoid the bad stuff. We recently remodeled our laundry room using Ikea cabinets, countertop & sink. This was all pretty easy. Ikea provides many tools to plan out cabinets for a room, and it's much more convenient then anything provided by Home Depot. Some tips: - Shopping at Ikea requires practice. This might sound odd, but once you understand the Ikea mindset you'll be fine. We try go in, find the products we need, and avoid the rest of the store. - There are few customer service people available, so you're mostly on your own. It's almost a Do-it-yourself store. - If you try to take in the whole store at one go, you'll be exhausted by the end. Avoid the rooms you don't need. - There are several play areas for the kids. They also have diaper changing tables, a quiet & private breastfeeding room, etc. - Use the shortcuts and avoid parts of the store you don't need. Good luck finding the shortcuts. They are poorly marked. - Take a break. There is a restaurant on the second floor. Food is fine, they have coffee, prices are cheap, kids food is extra-cheap-- they even provide jars of baby food. We often eat a family dinner here for about $15. - Ikea provide maps of the store, notepads, pencils & catalogs, and most products are available for hands-on inspection. Phone customer service is almost nonexistant. The Ikea website is bad--- there are missing products, wrong information for some products, etc. For example, they only just removed the 2005 Kitchen Planner after I complained, because it was 3 years out of date.

This restaurant would be fun for a small group of adults who don't mind a slow relaxed dinner. It's not a good place for kids, and probably not a good place to take a large group. The Basque Cultural Center is a bit like a convention hall. There's a little display of Basque-American sheep herders, a display of a cute sheepherder wagon out front, two large halls, a Jai alai game court, and a restaurant. My group was large (A wedding party with two kids). We had reserved a banquet room, but they kicked us out and and put us in the main dining room, in an awkward spot in the middle of the room. Those of us at the end of the table kept having to shuffle around to let people walk through. We arrived before 7:00, only to discover that they actually reserved the table for 7:30. At least they allowed us to sit down early at 7:15. We sat down around 7:15. The wine finally arrived 30 minutes later. We sustained ourselves on bread and butter until the soup arrived at 8:00. Salad at 8:30. The main entree arrived at after 9:00PM, more then 90 minutes after we sat down. Desert arrived after 9:30. I was hungry, and was watching the other tables who also waited 90 minutes for their entree. Food was served in courses--- soup, salad, entree then dessert. We ordered some grilled-chicken. The sauce was delicious, but the chicken was dry. All other food was average--- nothing spectacular.

This place would probably be fine if you only need a basic countertop in a standard size with no cutting. Here's what happened to us. We came in, and found a cheap, basic white marble countertop (8' x 25") for $50. "Great!", we thought. The price quickly inflated to $700. Here's what they quoted us: - $250 for larger basic plane white counter top: 8' x 36" - $300 to cut the countertop to a custom size: 37" x 30" - $90 to drill holes for faucets. - $50 for marble backsplash (This charge seems acceptable) They won't cut for a top-mount sink. They only do undermount sinks. But they still have top-mount sinks on display. They offer free sample chunks of marble in some sample bins. We took the sample chunk to the front desk. The CS rep looked at the sample, and insisted that they no longer sold that kind of marble-- even though it was clearly displayed there right on the wall. Another CS rep had to correct her.
