Subject:You'll never believe this...
Security:Public

I just bought a G4 PowerMac and I LOVE IT!!! This thing is a dual-866 running OS/X and it rocks. I haven't spent a lot of time digging around yet but it's definitely the perfect unix -- a real OS underneath a great UI. If this doesn't bring back apple nothing will... in any case you can consider me a "switcher".

Adios, Bill!

Subject:7.3
Security:Public

well, that wasn't too bad. I'm back up on 7.3 and the only problem I had was that it didn't like having 2 nics in the box... no matter.

Security:Public

Get it from here:

ftp://ftp.fokus.gmd.de/pub/unix/cdrecord/alpha/win32/

Unzip to a directory

Do this to find device number for CDR drive:

cdrecord -scanbus

Then do this to record:

cdrecord dev=1,0,0 -v -eject filename.iso

Subject:Java on Linux 7.1
Security:Public

If you use RedHat Linux 7 Server, you must manually install compat-libstdc++-6.21-2.9.0.0.i386.rpm to prevent "error while loading shared libraries" when using the Java HotSpot VMs. This file is located
in the /RedHat/RPMS directory on the RedHat Linux 7 CD-ROM. You may also obtain a copy of this file from http://rpmfind.net. To install the file, use this command:

rpm --install compat-libstdc++-6.21-2.9.0.0.i386.rpm

It is not necessary to manually install compat-libstdc++-6.21-2.9.0.0.i386.rpm if you are using RedHat Linux 7 Workstation.

Subject:First run at a custom style
Security:Public

I like the Punquin style, but was really getting annoyed with having the sidebar on the left and all of that whitespace below it. I created a new style which is pretty much the same, but moved the sidebar to the right and added some handy links to it. There's so much room in there, I may go back and add all of the links from the livejournal home page. I'd also like to come up with some other useful stuff (quote of the day, joke of the day, things like that) to add in there. Guess I should find a picture, too.

Anyway, it wasn't too difficult and seems to work fine. More stuff to play with...

A fairly productive day today... got most of the remaining production stuff off of ultra1... kind of had to because I'm expecting to come in any day and find it a pile of smoking ruins. Just have to get the t&c stuff and the sla report off of there, and we can finally retire the thing.

Did a webec upgrade today for the first time in a while... that's really getting painful, and will only get worse when we ad mpls into the mix. The timing couldn't be better to get the automated install thing in place.

Tomorrow is going to suck... have to go pull out the docks at the lake (two this year!) and there's a chance it's going to snow tonight!! I don't expect to feel any sensations below the waist for the next couple of days.

To allow a perl script to impersonate another user:

The account that the script runs as (for a web server, typically IUSR_MACHINE) needs these privs:
- Act as part of the operating system
- Bypass traverse checking
- Replace a process level token

The account that the script will log in as (below) needs this priv:
- Log on Locally, or Log on as a Service (depends on how the function is called)

Then:

Win32::AdminMisc::LogonAsUser($domain, $user, $password [, $logon_type ] );

all parameters are strings.

You have to re-login after granting privs (or restart the web server if that's how the script is called).

well... this site is slow tonight. guess he's not kidding about needing a new server!

starting a new book... a fantasy novel by Greg Bear (can't remember the name right now). Should be interesting... I have high hopes since I like his sci-fi so much.

I think I got all of the sales demo junk wrapped up at work. Speaking of sales, thank GOD we finally have a real marketing department now. If they can really sell the message they presented this morning INSIDE the company, I don't think they'll have any trouble selling it outside. And if they can do that, then we might be able to stop running in 100 directions at once and get some balls and actually charge customers for all this custom crap (or maybe even say NO once in a while!)

I've seen marketing done wrong plenty of times, but this is one of the few times I feel like it's being done right, and it definitely can make a difference. Besides, you gotta love a marketing vp who says "Everything I learned about marketing came in a 25-page booklet." HA!

there was something I was going to say... oh, yeah... it'd be great if there was a way to download your entire journal (in plain text, html or some other format) so you could read through it. doesn't make much sense to have to browse through it on line all the time.

anyway... tomorrow should be interesting. I really need to go to bed. l8r.

ok... this is really strange. the error message below only comes from the linux version of netscape... not the windows version!!

okay... this new imap server is just spiffy except that it won't let netscape authenticate. keeps giving this:

imaplogin: malloc: No child processes

what's up with that?!?!?!

it works fine with pine via unix, and with OE via windows.

Subject:A Better Imap
Security:Public
Mood:accomplished

Since UW-Imapd (the default imapd that comes with linux) doesn't really seem to work very well, I went out and found/installed a better one. Though it's not obvious at first, the best way to do this is to:

1) remove sendmail and replace it with qmail
2) do the following to configure qmail for "maildir" rather than "mailbox" storage:


as the user:

% maildirmake $HOME/Maildir
% echo ./Maildir/ > ~/.qmail

as root:

Create a maildir in the new-user template directory and (probably don't need to do this, but I'm keeping it logged here anyway) replace ./Mailbox with ./Maildir/ in /var/qmail/rc.


3) fire up qmail
4) install Courier-IMAP as the imap server.

both packages are available from Freshmeat, and so far seem to work much better than the defaults from redhat. Courier-IMAP mentions the need for "maildrop", but you don't need it as long as you setup Maildir support with Qmail.

This, of course, breaks mail readers like elm, but gives a better imap tool. Pine can read imap, and there's a tool in the qmail package that can convert maildirs so they can be read by elm, etc.
