Things I love this week, edition 2

LeisureTown. This superb comic closing was a dark, dark day. It’s back now, years later, in its original super-saracam-dripping format. Huzzah!

X-Cygwin. I don’t normally use Windows. This is nearly making it tolerable for me on the laptop. It’s cheaper than eXceed (it’s free, of course), and I can run GnuCash while I’m sitting on my butt in front of the tv.

cdb. I never really think about it, and that’s why I like it. Patched some qmail servers late last night with a valid rcpt to: whitelist hack, which reads it’s whitelist from a cdb. No more bounces to invalid addresses, queues are quiet and small, customer quotas aren’t filling up with quarantined spam, and we’re checking about 70-100 rcpts a second without blinking. So beautiful, it nearly makes me cry.

Lbdb. God, I love synced data. Palm .pdb plug in? ++ to that.

Asterisk. Yeah, if you’re reading this, I’ve probably already told you how rad it is. Setting up a development phonepost gateway here at home and integrating it into my existing, personal Asterisk server sounded difficult before I did it. Jeez, that was easy. I love you, Asterisk.

Eggrolls. My god these are delicious “high-quality, reasonably-priced frozen Asian products.” I need to go ride a bike, and soon. I can’t stop eating them. Damn you, Costco, and your 18 pack.

  • girl girl girl girl girl

    I'm on a posting spree. Some new kiddo ultrasounds. It's a girl. I'm officially screwed. :D

  • Ion is yum

    I just upgraded to the development version of Ion, and I've fallen in love with it all over again. Gnome certainly is nice, but so…
