Voice over IP Telephone Calls (VoIP)

Web Server for Sale

I just upgraded my web server and selling my old one. This computer was in perfect working order when I took it offline on 02-12-2003. Its 14 months old – homemade by me – and was serving 1.5 million hits a day (Running Linux) when it needed to be upgraded. Like selling an old friend. […]

Novell should GPL Unix

I think Novell – who claims to have a copyright on Unix – should set Unix free and GPL it’s copyright. Novell is currently perceived as the “good guys” in the battle aghainst SCO’s copyright claims against Linux. They now own SUSE and they appear to have a focus on Linux in their future. But […]

AT&T Cell Phone Service in San Fran Sucks

I used to really like AT&T but in the last several months their service has really gone to hell. The audio is very choppy even with good signal strength and the calls drop all the time. Knowing what I know about electronics the type of distortion souns like digital packet loss – in short – […]

Apache 2.0 a lot faster than Apache 1.3

I just upgraded my web server last week to the new Redhat Fedora Linux from Redhat 7.3. It was a very interesting upgrade. I had at first devised a way to do the upgrade without shutting the server down and it almost worked. If not for Python and PHP getting screwed up it would have […]
