the conspiracy has you
You're a slave to the conspiracy, and I can prove it. There isn't a conspiracy you can prove, but you can point to all the circumstantial evidence, even that which has nothing to do with the situation at hand, and gleefully announce: Conspiracy! It's the l...

pfSense Minimum TTL Adjustment / Fix
For dealing with situations where your pfSense firewall receives a TTL of 1, you can mangle this in the filtering code on the server.  The key file, for version 2.2.5 and similar, is /etc/inc/filter.inc : filter.inc:            $scrubrules .= "scrub on \${$...

The 2016 Election... a Bit of Reflection
I was upset when I found out Trump won.  I was even more so after reading the details of his 100 day plan.  His inexperience, arrogance, and foulness alone were enough to turn me off to him.  But enough people wanted a change that they took what we might co...

Bind9 and the Mysterious PTR resolution failure
I run a sort-of cagey DNS setup.  I have a hidden primary that isn't exactly hidden, but is certainly not well-advertised.  Couple this with the fact that I run both internal and external views (so that my internal clients can resolve the same names the ext...

Bicycle

knowledge that wouldn't know how to make it through the rest of your

Thoughts on Tolerance
I'm trying to understand "tolerance," the Conservative Right, the Liberal Left, the Progressives, the Alt-Rights...  It's not an easy task, but it occurred to me today that many people on both sides are really fundamentally the same: they are fixed in their...

Acceptance
Acceptance: it isn't about accepting what will be, but more to the point what is and has come to pass, what cannot now be undone. This is a facet of my daily life, and unconsciously is of all people in some form or another. You accept that your coffee was...
