Set up a link so Lucinda’s computer can access the Web. Set up a Squid 2.5 proxy server on Moe. Gave the dc1 interface an IP address of 192.168.2.1 and gave her computer 192.168.2.2. Made a long crossover cable to connect them.
To make a directory into an ISO filesystem image:
mkisofs -L -a -R -o output.raw /path/to/directory
To mount an ISO image file as a device:
bort# cd /modules bort# ls -al *vn* -r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 71386 Dec 24 10:36 vn.ko bort# kldload vn.ko bort# vnconfig -c /dev/vn0c smoothwall-1.0.iso bort# mount -t cd9660 /dev/vn0c /mnt
To burn a CD with the image file:
cdrecord -v speed=1 dev/dev/cd0d:6,0 output.raw
People sometimes ask me why I hate Microsoft. Well, just look at the graph below. The big green lump in the middle is all the Swen viruses that infected machines sent us. I had to spend several hours configuring the mail server here to reject them. It was incredibly annoying.
Today we had two adventures. First, we went on a short hike in Rubio Canyon. We got to see some of the remains of the old Mt. Lowe Railway. We didn’t get far enough up the trail to see the big landslide that covered the waterfalls, though.
After this, we went to Griffith Park to see the L.A. Live Steamers, but when we got there, the sign said that they were closed today. So we went next door to Travel Town to see the trains there. Lucinda had fun climbing on the trains.
After all this, we had lunch at Chevy’s in Glendale.
Mandy gave me a digital camera to experiment with. I got it to mount on FreeBSD with:
camcontrol rescan all mount -t msdos /dev/da0s1 /mnt cd /mnt/dcim/100_fuji/
Last Saturday, we found a large praying mantis in the back yard. We put it in a little cage and brought it in for Lucinda to see. She took it to school yesterday to show everyone. Last night, we went out to the garage and caught a large spider and put that in the cage with the mantis. This morning, all that was left was a small pile of legs in the corner of the cage.
