I was talking to avatar earlier this evening. I guess I am finally getting a ssh account to the imaclinux box, so I'll be able to upload images, files, etc. myself. Also, besides the promised sponsership by LinuxPPC, I mentioned earlier, they are also going to be providing us with the ppclinux.org.

I don't know what's going to happen with penguinppc.net, or if we are going to use it. Right now it just points to the iMacLinux.net virtual server, but there is a penguinppc.net setup up there.

As you probably know already, <person>Kevin Puetz</person> has put some debs of XFree86 4.02 on penguinppc.org, which is cool (I've been waiting for a good excuse to play with it for a while).


As you can probably see, I've updated bsa89.org, with some news and stuff. Also, I've added a page that has a script on it, that graps content from this diary, and puts it there (as my diary often has scout stuff in it).


Well, two more days until Friday. I can't wait this week, it seems to be taking forever to over, at least it's a long weekend.

Not much exciting happened today. I didn't have any homework. We didn't do much work in school. Sounds pretty much like a normal day?

I picked up my letter of recommendation for Eagle Scout from the guidence office, today, It's still in Math notebook.

Speaking of math, I keep all of my class assignments, and a calender in my calculator. It's pretty cool, to have all that in my calculator. They look kind of like:

**** Calender ****

* Thursday 1/11/01 (A) Library ? Select Choir, AS Scouts, 7:30

* Friday 1/12/01 (B) Happy Weekend.

I am still not sure if I like the new physics teacher (perm. subsituting for Mrs. Orris). I guess time will tell, although I do have make a decission soon if want to keep going with Physics. I probably will, unless something happens between then and now.


My machine runs really well with 96 MB of RAM, especially using Blackbox (which I really like). This week, I setup a firewall around my machine, and played around with Junkbuster to lie about my browser version user-agent Mozilla/4.7.3 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.4.0 ppc; Milking Cows Edition; Fuck Corporations) and add-header HowtoMilkaCow: Clean the udder off and work the milk out of the teats using you thumb and fore finger. I figure that will probably make some poor system analysis who spends too much of his life under florcent light laugh at it.

I think my firewall is pretty good now, it only allows outgoing connections for the required TCP/IP stuff, ssh, telnet, irc, napster, ftp, and of course http. I don't allow any incoming connections (except for localhost, so I can use it to test stuff.


I've put some items on my anti-censorship page, stuff about a local case in NYS a little bit about de-regulation of stuff.

In The End

Have a good evening.
