  • OS X Password Reset

  • Downtime

    Sorry about the downtime everyone.  Yesterday was the last day of school, and today I moved back home.  My webpage is running on my Ubuntu server running in VMWare Fusion on my MacPro.  Soon as I get enough money I’ll move it to it’s own little Mac Mini that won’t travel with me. 

  • Mac OS X’s Magical Undecillion

    I was curios how well OS X can say number magnitudes, and while doing so found out something very interesting. If you go to the terminal and type “say 1000000000000000000000000000000000000” (which is one undecillion), you get a buss error.

  • Ubuntu 8.04

    Looks like it is that time of year again!  Another great update from our friends at Ubuntu.  Version 8.04 is going to be out very soon, and since Ubuntu has been doing such a great job of running my website (and for free i might add!) I thought I’d take the opportunity to give it […]

  • Fun With Google

    Google often provides us with a little touch of entertainment in our lives. Although this works with web browsers, the simplified response on cell phones makes it a little more enjoyable. 1. On your cell phone, create a new text message. The number for the message is 466-453. For the body of the message do […]

  • Lessons Learned…

    While setting up my linux server running Ubuntu in VMWare Fusion to perform automated backups, I found no matter what I could not get it to log onto my macs side with key-based SSH authentication.  So after an archive and install and a few hours on the phone / over iChat with Jesse, we found the problem […]

  • Outage

    Sorry for the site being down for a few days.  I went home for the weekend (to work and for General Conference) and while I was gone Rexburg received a lot of snow.  The power went out a few times and my computer did not seem to come up properly.  My room mates both went […]
