Comment Denial of Service? (Score 1) 11

Are you able to read the site at all or is the problem just at the login? It's possible that there is a denial of service attack somewhere in between and your IP is in a block that has been blacked out from the server or servers that permit logins. One thing you can try with your laptop - move to a different network and see if it follows you. Also, you could try going through a proxy.


Comment Playing Dirty (Score 1) 5

Some time ago, the police in a city where I used to live had a bright red classic Ford Mustang. They had a habit of pulling up to other cars at stop lights on one of the busiest roads in the area, and when the other drivers would take off in an attempt to race, the police would pull them over and ticket them. To me that's borderline dirty.

Comment You've missed very little (Score 1) 10

It's more or less a ghost town around here anymore. I still read the front page, but few people post anything of interest. The only thing keeping me here is an extreme case of apathy.

All is well with you?

Well done...

Thanks. I have been cramming for weeks.

I couldn't, any more. My RH days are back in 2001...

Red Hat's definitely a different animal now, though the core should be familiar. The parts that make the exam hard are the parts that Red Hat in particular cares about but are generally not emphasized in other distros. And those parts are definitely post-2001.

I took the RHCSA exam this morning, and managed to pass it on the first try.

And the villagers rejoiced.

If every day goes like this, how do we survive?
We're working late on the night shift to get peace of mind.

I can relate to this one all too well, especially of late...

Comment Not completely dead, but close (Score 1) 15

I have to agree with some of the other comments I see sprinkled here and there - it has become much more of a PITA to post here, and there are fewer and fewer people posting. There's enough happening to keep me somewhat interested, though.

Thanks. I still am here, and I still read most of your frequent posts (though sometimes I don't quite understand what you post). I have been meaning to ask you: how in the world do you find the stuff you post (in particular the links)? Sometimes you post things that really startle me and I can't figure out if you're on some mailing list or if you just know where to find stuff...

Still baking?

I don't have the time anymore because of the work I do. I have reached a point, though, where I need to consider doing something else (or for someone else) so I have my time with my family again.

Journal Journal: [misc] Still here 4

It has been close to a year since I have bothered to post anything on here. I still read almost daily, and once in a great while I find something on here that entices me to comment though it's rare. Anymore the room is quiet, with the occasional political post or the intermittent technical post.
