I write about maximum politeness
One of the things about having more than one child is that you have the chance to get a better feel for the rhythms and patterns of childhood the second time around. It takes, for example, a few times through the growth spurt cycle 1 to realise what's going on; the first time it happens with ...

I wrote too many words about why I didn't really enjoy Snuff.
Snuff was the annual Pratchett novel last year; I enjoy most of Pratchett's voluminous body of work, and after some wobbles with Thud I had been feeling like he was back in fine form with The Truth, Going Postal, and Making Money 1. I really enjoyed Unseen Academicals despite it enjoying only an ...

I wrote up some simple systemd examples.
Per my earlier post I've been learning and using systemd more and more last year. I presented a couple of examples in my talk, but I thought I'd throw up some more; one rich source of writing-my-own-service-files has been Debian 7 boxes I've moved over to systemd.

I wrote about childrens' books.
As Ada has gotten older, I've had more reason to think about how childrens' books are written and organised. Kids' fiction is a big market, after all: as well as the newly socially acceptable crossover market, where it's no longer particularly a stigma to read the likes of Harry Potter or the ...

That's awesome. It changes the tone of the album covers completely. I bet that Eddie is not amused, though... :)

I wrote about eSATA.  And in favour of USB.
Over the last year I have come to a simple conclusion: friends don't let friends use eSATA. First, a bit of background: my disk needs aren't that excessive, but I generally want at least 3 main types of partition for a SOHO server build: a system partition (mirrored with LVM), an encrypted data ...

I had a very similar experience trying to use esata about 4 years ago to do a cheap storage expansion. Once bitten, twice shy - I've been using USB or SAS  ever since, depending on what I'm expanding...
