Chitchat

———-

While trying to spatchcock a chicken, almost cut off a finger. It is beginning to heal. Thank god, no stitches required.

Messed up a boot on a hard drive while trying to upgrade the arch install on the Pogoplug. At least I can get data from the hard drive. The Pogoplug is bricked for the time being, Until I have a chance to redo the usb stick. Something went foobar during the install.

Keeping that old machine may mean you will not have to do dual boots.

Women hate to hear men say “Trust me.” women hate to hear “Trusty Tahr.”

Someone asked me the difference between closed source and open source software. For a layman, I thought the best way might be to use pictures. Closed source might be like a tv dinner where everything is almost precooked. Until you get the meal out of the box and into the microwave or oven (if the meal supports an oven), there is little you can do to change or alter the meal. But you have the advantage of no recipes to follow and it is easy per se to prepare. One shortcoming though is you do not know where the ingredients came from or how it was prepared.

Actually this tv dinner was cheaper than expected and quite good to eat. I was surprised. The portions were exacting though. Added some butter for the mashed potatoes and the corn. With open source things are a bit different. You have to go out buy all the groceries to prepare and cook the meal. There is an advantage here is that you can inspect the ingredients to make sure you have what you want. You can also either use prepared recipes, modify the prepared recipes to your likes, or you can even make up your own recipes for preparing the meal. I am no cook by any shape or means, but sometimes I like to do something different you generally will not find in a tv dinner. For example, I like to make my own buttermilk biscuits from scratch, pasta from scratch, or many other choices.

In the picture above, I made banana bread from scratch, Cooked porkchops to my liking, made homemade gravy, hand cut salad, and vegetables. A meal fit for a king. I can also choose the portion size of my preference, I did cheat a bit by using store bought bread. Oh well, that is part of the choices you get to make when preparing your own dinner. Mixing and matching makes dinner more fun. Hope that helps defing the difference between closed source and open source.

There are times when you just need a quick connection at home or in a small office and setting up wireless can be a real hassle not to mention potential security issues. Instead you might consider ethernet over power aka eop. Advantages are that it is all plug and play, you can even use use house wiring as your medium. You will need at least two modules (on for each side of the connection,) i have seen a set of modules for under thirty dollars. That is not much more than the price of a good Nic.

Give it a try.

More and more people are wanting to separate their private network from the internet but still want to access both for a system or two. No problem. You can set up multihomed nics faily easily and all things being equal, no packets should go between the two.

If you have 2 NIC (network Lan card) each connected to different networks:

=> eth0: 192.168.1.0/24
=> eth1: 192.168.2.0/24

Consider above setup. Now if you want to route traffic to connected network only (eth0 and eth1) w/o setting Linux server as a router. This is generally called multi homing setup. You don’t have to setup Linux box as a router to use multi homing :). Just assign as IP address to each NIC and you are done.

How do I configure Linux multi homing?

Just assign each interface IP address using ifconfig or use DHCP and multi homing will be turned on:

# ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.254 up
# ifconfig eth1 192.168.2.254 up

Commonly, most admin confuse the idea of multi-homing with the concept of routing or IP forwarding. Once two IP address assigned your system follows the default. No special configuration needed. Your multi-homing is up and running :).

You can get all kinds of gadgets for your desktop that usually sit on the top panel. One of them that can be very important is the weather.  The unit is called a barometer, which was allegedly invented in 1643 by Evangelista Torricelli.  You may need to elect to display the barometric pressure on your panel outtake.

Normally during clear weather, the measure is above 30. Where you may live it may vary. In our case, the pressure is dropping. This can mean that rain is coming. And rain is in the forecast for the next day or so, Gives you a chance to outsmart the weatherman. So higher pressure is good weather for the most part.

Not only can you predict the weather, you might predict when the fish might bite! Fish are much more comfortable when there’s stable high pressure, and tend to feed actively most anywhere within the water column.So do not expect good fishing if it is going to get cold or bad weather is coming.

You can build your own non-precise barometer with materials around the house. A jar, balloon, tape, a straw, and a chart are pretty much what you need to build it. The main thing you want to look at are the trends. Is the straw going down, up, or just sitting still.

Have fun!

How do I configure Linux multi homing?

Just assign each interface IP address using ifconfig or use DHCP and multi homing will be turned on:

# ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.254 up
# ifconfig eth1 192.168.2.254 up

Commonly, most admin confuse the idea of multi-homing with the concept of routing or IP forwarding. Once two IP address assigned your system follows the default. No special configuration needed. Your multi-homing is up and running :).

Additional routing

You can turn on additional routing feature, with multi-homing. Just enable forwarding:

# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forwarding

If you reboot system you will lost additional routing setup. Add following line to your /etc/sysctl.conf file:

# vi /etc/sysctl.conf Add following line:net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

Save and type command:# sysctl -p

But, what is the difference between routing and multi homing setup?

=> Multi homing route traffic to each connected network but no frames are forwarded between two networks.
=> Routing forward frames between two networks. See these (setup Linux as a router for DSL, T1 line etc) previous articles (setup vmware host router) on how to setup Linux as a router.
