Well it's a nice day for a light sweater
It's a nice day for a caaardigaaaaaan!
The Morris Worm was 30 years ago today.
I was working as the network admin at EuroPARC, the European satellite lab of Xerox PARC. We were getting hints that Something Was Wrong, stuff running slowly, sites dropping off the net, when I got a frantic call from my counterpart at PARC, telling me to power everything down, don't waste time gracefully shutting things down, just pull plugs and hit power switches.
Infosec was born that day. :)
I always thought of myself as a quite unemotional person, without the ability
to get the concept of faith or religion. All the bigger my surprise, when I
found myself in the Greenwich Observatory in front of all those clocks,
calendars, and scientific stellar diaries. I think my feelings there must have
been quite similar to faith. In mankind.
Oh, and it gives you room for Super- and Hyper-keys in case you code with #emacs

After 7 years i'm finally dismantling my Synology DS211j after final cleaning up.
The HDDs should be fine, but as the DS211j is weak and old and there seems no easy way of alternate firmware (who needs DSM?) i'm looking for something which can host 2 SATA HDDs and has 1Gbe. USB nice to have.
Plan is to boot once weekly, rsync data from another server and go back to sleep...
