AIM TOS is wacked

Filed under: — elana @ 03:05 IST

Thank you Slashdot, for letting me know that AOL changed the TOS for AIM. And that they can read and use anything from your conversations. I need to change, methinks. At least I’m not using fully AIM software, which seems to change it. Adium is my poison. But are any of our friends interested in changing to Jabber with me?

Interesting. A nice way to get schools things that they need, in a way. Teachers list what they would like/need for the classroom, and you can donate to them.

More on Wil

Filed under: — elana @ 19:25 IST

Finally he’s getting the props he deserves. Good on ya Wil. Can’t wait to download this episode. I might even watch it before the Hurley episode of Lost…

Seriously, Wil’s really blossomed as a writer. His two books are wonderful (Just A Geekcontained many read-out-loud-to-the-person-you’re-sitting-next-to moments) and he seems to have come into his own skin. Which is nice to say about someone. And I’m lucky enough to have had him friend me at Orkut :-). He apparently WILL do anything for some Guinness :-).

AIM/MSN/Yahoo inside a firewall

Filed under: — brendan @ 15:16 IST

Say you want to talk to your wife or remote co-worker on AIM, but you’re on a system inside a firewall. All is not lost if the firewall is really picky about what ports it’ll allow you to use—and you have no ability to change the firewall’s settings. If the SSH port (22) is open on the firewall, you’ve got a workaround as long as you can SSH to a remote host that’s able to be configured for you or by you.

In the description of what I came up with (derived from the suggestions of others via google), both the home system and laptop I describe are running version 9.2 of the SuSE Linux distribution. In theory, however, this should work with any client using a recent copy of OpenSSH. Please feel free to correct me if this isn’t true. πŸ™‚

Originally, I suggested that you need to install dante and dante-server on the remote server you’ll be using to do the work of the connection. However, it turns out OpenSSH has the DynamicForward option which does the work for you, making the OpenSSH server and client use the SOCKS5 protocol to handle the connection. Many thanks to Justin Mason for pointing it out.

On the laptop that’s roaming from place to place, install just the GAIM instant messaging package. (In theory, if we had to use dante-server then you’d also install the dante client on the laptop so KDE can use the SOCKS for its own IM client kopete. However, we’re using GAIM because I’ve been unable to make KDE+kopete work for me in this. And since OpenSSH is doing the work, we don’t need to install the extra package on the laptop.)

From inside the firewall, log into the remote system with the command “ssh home“. The ~/.ssh/config file (or wherever your SSH client keeps its configuration) should have

   Host home
     HostName 1.2.3.4  # server external IP address
     # If we were using dante and dante-server, we'd need:
     #LocalForward 1080 127.0.0.1:1080
     # However, we can just use this:
     DynamicForward 1080

On the laptop, run GAIM and go into Preferences, selecting Network. Under ProxyServer choose Proxy type SOCKS5, and set Host to 127.0.0.1 and Port to 1080. Click on Close.

To connect, click “Sign On” in the GAIM window. (You’ll need to make sure that each account in GAIM has “Auto-login” selected so more than just AIM are used.)

In theory, the SSH tunnel letting you use SOCKS should now make any/all of your AIM, MSN, and YahooMessenger IDs be online successfully. I’ll be interested to hear of any problems others might have trying to get this to work.

Wil on CSI

Filed under: — elana @ 11:40 IST

If you are as much of a dork for CSI as I am (tho I want to know who writes some of those lines…groaners), and if you like ST:TNG, tonight (in the States) is the episode where Wil Wheaton guest stars. Once it airs, he’ll talk more about it in his blog. He’s a great writer, and I really enjoy his style. Can’t wait til someone uploads it, so we can see it :-).

TV-free household

Filed under: — brendan @ 04:32 IST

No NTL cable today, and the next time they can come to try to fix it? Monday morning. Nearly 5 days. If we want credit for the service being out, it’s up to us to call the billing department once it’s working again.

Harrumph.

Update: It turned out our entire street was out, which accelerated the fix and got it back up by late afternoon.

We’ve got a picture of the access card that’s inside the box and put it up here—half of it looks like it’s been over a candle, slowly slowly melting away:

Horoscopes

Filed under: — elana @ 17:09 IST

The online horoscope asked for a first name. So we gave ’em one. You guess what name we chose.

Right now you might need to develop some more trust in others, dickhead. You could be a little frustrated because you want to do things your own way. But you could be encountering some restrictions. Your dreams might require more time, money, and energy before they can come into reality. Try to have faith today. Realize that you have survived worse challenges in the past and have ended up triumphant. Don’t worry – you can make it through!

Then, cause I was going to say that we were looking at this cause our friend John pointed us to it, I went looking for a webpage that referred to him at all. Which is difficult, since his name is John Rambo. No, really. And then we found this, which made us cry with laughter even more than the horoscope.

Cube boot commands

Filed under: — brendan @ 12:03 IST

Hacking on a Cube a little bit, I came up with this list of things you can do when it’s booting. What’s missing? Is there a definitive list anywhere?

    At the prompt, type

  • boot enet:0,yaboot — boot over the network requesting yaboot, the package I was using to do a network boot of the Cube
  • boot cdrom
  • boot cdrom:0
  • boot hd:0
  • load
  • bye
  • mac-boot
  • eject cd
  • dir hd:\
  • reset-nvram
  • reset-all
    While booting, hold down:

  • Opt-Apple-O-F — boot from firmware
  • c — boot from cdrom
  • t — don’t remember
  • x — don’t remember
  • n — boot from network

Two Unrelated Movies

Filed under: — Sven @ 11:04 IST

Two movie reviews today:

The first is Garden State, a feel good romantic comedy about about a twenty-something who returnes home for the first time in years to attend his mother’s funeral. He forgets his behavior altering drugs he has been taking since childhood and learns who he really is. On Netflix I rated this one β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†, but δ½™θ‰Ύθ•Ύ pumped it up to β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜….

Natalie Portman stole the show as the quirkily deep female side of the romantic relation. Her and Zach Braff’s character end up taking a mental and physical trip around much of New Jersey. While δ½™θ‰Ύθ•Ύ questions the title of the movie, and wonders why it needs to be in New Jersey, having grown up along the keystone/garden state’s border I think I see where Mr. Braff is comming from. I think the title is also a pun on the state of mind Mr. Braff’s character was in when the drugs finally wore off.

δ½™θ‰Ύθ•Ύ also loved the music, and already has the sound track.

The second movie is The Manchurian Candidate with Frank Sinatra and Angela Lansbury. The two most surprising things in this 1962 thriller is that Mr. Sinatra can act, and that Ms. Lansbury is a great villain. I didn’t think about a singing tea kettle the entire film!

The main problem with this movie is that it made me think some other films are worse, I now realize how unoriginal they are. At the Oscars, when a film I’ve seen gets nominated for best editing I rarely understand why, this film’s editing was brilliant. The specials on the DVD said that Mr. Sinatra was offered any character he wanted to be on this film, he made the correct choice as Laurence Harvey pulled off being “brain dry-cleaned” better then I think Mr. Sinatra could. Both δ½™θ‰Ύθ•Ύ and I gave this β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜….
