Help me pick a domain name

I think I'm going to register a domain name with no-ip.com. I don't have to have a static IP address and it's only $30 a year. But I have to choose a name:

Dave Barry heals the nation

Herald.com | 12/12/2004 | Can't we all just get along?

The nation suffered a wound during the recent presidential election as a result of the rift between the red states -- defined as 'states where `foreign cuisine' pretty much means Pizza Hut'' -- and the blue states, defined as ``states that believe they are smarter than the red states, despite the fact that it takes the average blue-state resident 15 minutes to order a single cup of coffee.

wiki wiki

Now I have some actual content on my wiki. I put up a page that describes all of the websites I've made or helped with: Links - PrsnmnWiki. I also wrote a brief introduction to creating a wiki page in the help section. I'd love to see some people make pages and link to them from the wiki's main page. Have fun.

My new webserver, Media Wiki

I'm getting some things added to my new webserver, including a gallery and an installation of Media Wiki. If anyone wants to use this stuff, feel free. I don't have a purpose in mind for the wiki other than testing right now. If you have a bit of web software you want to try, or if you want a Movable Type blog that you can use to test things on, let me know and I can set something up for you. I can also create user account for my friends so they can store things and have their own web space like this: prsnmn.hopto.org/~dan. Since you can telnet in and have a Linux command line interface, it could be a good way to learn a bit about Linux. Let me know if you're interested.

So I'm having fun with Linux and I'm also having a great time at my job. One of our point-to-point T1 connections to a branch bank went down this week. Today I was on the phone with Cisco and I made a loopback cable by cutting an ethernet cable in half, stripping some wires and twisting them together. We were testing the router using hyperterminal to send commands from my laptop. I felt like I was in way over my head, but I'm learning a lot.

Test from Blogtk

If you're reading this, then I got BloGTK to work on my Linux computer. It's like w.bloggar, but more Linuxy. Earlier tonight I tried installing w.bloggar and Starcraft on my Ubuntu box using WINE, but I failed.

TiVo = Steroids

This device makes TiVo look like a dime-store trinket. But it's $2000 pricetag makes me want to apologize to my TiVo for saying that. 1200+ GB of storage, ethernet, DVD burner, drool.

Optical Illusion

Check it out. The picture's not moving but it sure looks like it is.

No static IPs

I called SBC this morning to see if I could get a static IP address for my DSL. I figured it would be worth an extra $10-15 a month if it would let me get a domain name and start hosting some real sites on my linux box. I talked to 5 different people and finally got someone who could give me a straight answer. The slowest DSL package with static IPs costs $54 / month. That's almost $30 more than I'm paying now, and the connection would be slower than what I have now. He also said that these prices are not negotiable. I guess I'll keep working with what I've got.

Comments are back

Brendan and I worked on the website for a while this morning and comments are back. We renamed the commenting script and changed some things so it should be a little harder for spammers to find. So comment away. I think we're going to put up some Christmas decorations now.

Blog is fixed (sort of)

Sorry about the blog being down for a while. It's fixed now, but comments won't work. Sorry. We've been getting so much comment spam that our webhost suspended our account. We had to remove the script that controls comments, so if you have something to say, use the forums.
