Proxy Patch for tuxtime

Monday, September 30th, 2002

Some of the systems that I run tuxtime on are behind firewalls that
block port 4242. To work around that I’ve patched tuxtime-0.2.2 so
you can specify a new host:port that isn’t block. Using an ssh port
forwarding tunnel is the simplest thing.

The patch lets you set in /etc/tuxtime.conf

        proxyserver = localhost
        proxyport   = 4242

and then from a console setup an ssh tunnel like this:

        ssh -f -C -L 4242:data.tuxtime.dk:4242 you@external-system.com sleep 36
000

Open Source Web Design (OSWD)

Friday, September 27th, 2002

I stumbled across the Open Source Web
Design
site where the encourage you to use their HTML design.
Isn’t the shameless borrowing of HTML code the way most people learn
how to design their sites? Their browsing interface is a little slow
going, but if you have some time you can find some nice templates.

I like clean designs like href="http://www.oswd.org/viewdesign.phtml?id=973&referer=/search.php?type=desc
ription&searchstring=poly">Poly.
I’ve adapted the design to href="http://www.raelity.org/apps/blosxom/">blosxom‘s new
templating style. Try it out.

Blosxom 0+5i

Thursday, September 19th, 2002

Rael released a new version of
blosxom. While he
didn’t take my suggestion of adding a way to tag entries with icons,
he did rework blosxom to walk down through directories looking for
entries. At least I can keep entries organized a bit more.

Currently my categories are:

top
   |-- blosxom/
   |-- eye-candy/
   |-- family/
   |   |-- kids/
   |   ·-- 
marc/
   |-- geocaching/
   |-- linux/
   |   |-- apps/
   |   |-- config
/
   |   |-- debian
/
   |   ·-- t
ips/
   ·-- us/
       ·-- civil-liberties/

A tip of the hat to the Linux command href="ftp://mama.indstate.edu/linux/tree/">tree which generated
the initial HTML for the above.

One for the folks at work is buying a new house out in the country and
pointed everyone to his site to take a look. He set a redirect to href="http://www.MyTrailerPark.com">MyTrailerPark.com
