Ubuntu Qmail HOWTO

Ubuntu used to have the qmail-src package available in the multiverse collection, however due to the lack of attention by whomever monitors the build reports, breezy doesn't have the package availble to it. However, since the debian package is an all-platform package, one can simply use it to get where you need to go. The process is easy (once you've figured it the hell out).

  1. download the Debian stable .debs for qmail-src and ucspi-tcp to your ubuntu system

  2. use dpkg to install them manually

  3. run build-ucspi-tcp

  4. run build-qmail

  5. (optional) apply patches

Turning the other Cheek

The congregation of the Church of the Nazarene finally tired of the 'turn the other cheek' attitude promoted by Jesus and took matters into their own hands. The whole TTOC method was simply allowing repeated burgularies of their church and so they decided to bring forth their Bats of Blessing and show Ralph Thomas the way of the Lord.

I leave you with Mathew 24:43:

Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into.


Special Signal for Stupid Drivers

For those who are too stupid to understand how right-of-way works with a green light and a left turn, the US Department of Transportation has issued an interim approval of a new "Flashing Yellow Arrow", or FYA to indicate when your left turn is permitted, but without the right-of-way.

Just another example of having to provide special rules for people who are too stupid to learn how to drive.

Darknet Mashup

darknet video screen shotA good discussion of darknets, copyright, drm and the MPAA went on at the SXSW conference. One thing that is a must-see is the video which was put together by J.D. Lasica. I highly recommend that you watch the video, download the clips from the discussion and read the commentary put up by Derek Powazek.
