You're Amelia!
You're late!
Amelia Pond! You're the little girl!
I'm Amelia, and you're late.

Ars Munuvica

Just browsing Ars Technica, as is my wont of a Saturday evening, when I find....  This:
One such Taliban propaganda site billed itself as the official voice of the "Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan," and regularly provided enthusiastic (if highly dubious) reports of successful attacks on coalition troops in the region. It was pulled offline last week after conservative blog The Jawa Report urged readers to complain to companies "unknowingly and unwittingly giving the Taliban some of the necessary tools they need to prolong the war." (The blogger also provided Taliban officials' contact emails, and suggested signing them up for sheep porn.)

Yeah Baby

Mythbusters is back for a new season.

Three words: Radio-controlled bus.

You know you're on something big when your small scale involves dropping cars from a crane.

I Think You Just Authored A Web Browser

Wrote a search engine over the weekend (when I wasn't building new super servers that don't work).

It pulls data out of a SQL database and creates full-text indexes for it, then provides a web server (no Apache needed!) and query engine with output as template-driven HTML or JSON.

4K of code.

CherryPy and Xapian, an awesome combination.

Support Above And Beyond

I mentioned on SoftLayer's forums that OpenVZ wasn't working with the new Nehalem server.  SoftLayer don't support OpenVZ; it's a custom kernel that I downloaded and installed myself.  If you need virtualisation and support, they offer Citrix XenServer, Virtuozzo, and Microsoft's Hyper-V.

Which is fine.  I  was hoping to do it myself with OpenVZ.  I couldn't get it to work because OpenVZ doesn't support the new network controllers and needed support.  SoftLayer don't support OpenVZ, so I asked them to sell me Virtuozzo.

What they did was deploy a test server with the same configuration as mine and assign an engineer to getting OpenVZ running.  For free.  That's awesome.
