I've finally taken the time to throw up a page for the triwavepicoswash that I built for my bro and myself. The page includes descriptions, pictures, and even some sound clips.

So stop reading this, and check it out already!

Well, for the time being at least, the ilab web server is back on port 80. I guess that means, at least temporarily, that http://ilab.homeip.net will work. Same goes for my other virtual hosts (like this one, or this one, or even this little one). Props to Cox to not filtering these ports, if it was intentional!

When are they going to realize that small personal web sites don't congest their network and simply facilitate easy communication to friends and family...which is what the service is supposed to do in the first place? Let us [continue to] run our measly little sites dammit! :)

Well, my triwavepicoswash is complete. I don't have pictures up yet (it's much too late for that now, I promise to do it later), but it's working amazingly. Perhaps I just have really simple tastes in noise, but I could listen to this thing all night. A big props to the guys at commonsound for the specs.

Well, for the most part it looks like the Cox conversion stuff worked relatively smoothly. I was impatient, so I restarted the interface when I saw the connection drop...and sure enough it came back a little later with a new IP. Unfortunately, I was dumb enough to forget to set permissions on my dynamic DNS update script, so that failed until I ran it manually.

Sweet.

A couple of quick updates. The weblog no longer supports the ascii mode. I hated that thing anyway. It's gone. Buh-bye.

I *should* have all my stuff on dyndns.org ported over from static to dynamic pending the upcoming switchover by cox. I got ddclient installed to hopefully automagically handle the updates. I highly doubt that everything will work on the first DHCP lease renewal (especially since I'm unsure if cox is keeping the cx hostname crapola)...keep your fingers crossed.

My email address has changed. I had to update every possible link on all these pages...what fun. Please use jason.plumb@cox.net as my primary email address for now on. Thanks.

Well, the ilab server now sports a mighty 128Mb RAM stick. Quite an upgrade from the mere 48Mb before. Thanks to my man nappbread for the donation! Hopefully this will help performance...but it's really too early to tell. Unfortunately, the replacement CDROM drives I tried all flaked out, so I'm still stuck with my crappy Creative drive which doesn't like to eject or mount nicely...although I think I've finally figured out the way to make it work.

I'm sure you didn't notice the downtime tonight during the upgrade.

Bah! Apparently the server clock got hosed during the maintenance. Ignore the wrong time on the last [next?] message. You may now return to your regularly scheduled program (at the correct time slot).
