[x86] Announcements / Server finally died :D
« on: August 22, 2015, 11:57:55 PM »
I couldn't get MySQL to turn on this morning. I knew it was coming - it's been having harddrive problems for awhile.

So, I moved everything to Linode, and it seems to be good! Let me know if you run into any problems, something always goes wrong when I move the server.

FWIW, my last backup was a week old, so earlier today there were a couple posts missing. I just went back and copied the original files (not backups, but the files themselves) off my old server and loaded them here, and it seems to be working. :)

[x86] Announcements / Move / disband the forum/site?
« on: December 29, 2014, 12:13:22 PM »
Hey everybody,

x86labs.org is coming up for renewal in February, and the SSL cert is up for renewal like tomorrow (and it's gonna be a pain in the butt to renew the cert).

I'm wondering if I should bother? Here's my proposal (which makes my life easier):
- Move the forum to a subdomain of skullsecurity.org (since I have a wildcard SSL cert and will maintain that domain till I'm cold and dead)
- Make the forum read-only (so we can keep it as a monument, since nobody really posts anymore anyways)
- Declare a new 'official' space for us (whether it's the current Facebook group or we make a Google Group or whatever, I don't care)

Thoughts?

[x86] Announcements / TEN FUCKING YEARS!
« on: October 11, 2014, 01:08:16 PM »
Holy fucking crap, ten years ago today me and James´╗┐ got the forum online, which I'm counting as our official start. Congrats for remaining such cool people! We definitely did something right. :)

6 of us have managed to gather in San Francisco, it seems. Join us for a virtual drink tonight at 7pm PDT / 8pm MDT / 9pm CDT / 10pm EDT! Here's a link:

(Hopefully that link works! It works for me, but I created it - if there are problems, I'll create a fresh Hangout and post it here)

Note: hanging out with us requires a G+ account ;)

Hey everybody,

I mentioned this on FB, but for those of you who aren't there or didn't see it...

October 11, 2014 - a Saturday - is our 10 year anniversary as a group. To celebrate, I want to have get together in San Francisco. Details to be determined, but who can make it out!? If people need a place to stay, let me know.

All members/friends are welcome :D

General Discussion / Online advertising

Living in the Bay, working at the Google.

Wow, I'm surprised!  I didn't think you would leave Canada, or work at a huge monopoly corporation. It's probably a nice place to work though.

Yeah, I didn't think I'd leave Canada either, but here I am!

I wouldn't call it a 'monopoly'. On one hand, I feel bad that 99.9% of my salary comes from ad revenue; on the other hand, they're constantly changing the world for the better, and they have really good policies regading privacy (privacy is SUPER important to them, because people will jump on anything) and lock-in (it's important that every app lets you view, manage, and export all your data). So that's a plus, at least. :)

[x86] Announcements / OMG SSL!
« on: December 30, 2013, 08:05:17 PM »
I just bought a SSL cert for "forum.x86labs.org". You'll now be able to enjoy the privacy and security of SSL while we talk about all our shenanigans! :)

I'm also forcing everybody on SSL, cuz why not?

Let me know if you get any cert errors or have other issues!

[x86] Announcements / New server + update
« on: October 10, 2013, 12:30:07 PM »
Hey all,

I just updated the forum to the latest version of SMF, and also moved it to a new server. The ip address is currently the same, but it's being proxied through this address to 206.220.196.59. This will be a little slower, but it's only a temporary measure.

Let me know if you have any issues!

[x86] Announcements / Moving!
« on: September 27, 2013, 05:10:09 PM »
I'm moving to the Bay Area. :-o

I'll figure out how to keep this server running when I go. Hopefully that'll go well. :)

Hey folks,

I just physically moved the server to a house I bought. Hopefully you'll notice a speed improvement, as my connection speed has significantly improved: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/2831255559

Have fun!

[x86] Announcements / 2013 meetup!?
« on: June 03, 2013, 03:55:28 PM »
Hey guys! I'm gonna be in the Bay Area from June 13 - July 2!

How's everybody's schedules looking for another get-together? I'm thinking on Friday June 28th, perhaps? Or maybe Saturday the 29th? I'm certainly open to other days, and will start a Doodle if this gets complicated.

Who's in!?

[x86] Announcements / Apache update
« on: October 30, 2012, 12:17:26 PM »
I did a major version update on Apache last night (2.2 -> 2.4) and broke a bunch of stuff. I think it's all fixed now, but if you notice anything odd let me know!

General Discussion / Quick infrastructure note...

You may have noticed some downtime this morning. It was brief and planned - I installed a UPS. So hopefully from now on, there will be less downtimes. :)

Ender's Book Club / Snowcrash [spoilers!]
« on: August 04, 2012, 06:17:41 PM »
I just read Snowcrash, and wanted to give my opinion (and hear others').

First of all, it's an enjoyable read. The narrative is fun, the comparisons are great, the action scenes are better written than most action scenes I've read, and I really didn't want to put it down. It's also really cool that he invented a lot of concepts, and frequently got things right. It also brings up some interesting questions about how we think - how we're born without language, but it becomes hardcoded.

On the downside, I thought the entire concept was kinda lame. I mean, he tied in a lot of history (I'm not even sure where the real history ends and the fiction begins), and that was cool. And the way he revealed it, I have mixed feelings about - basically, entire chapters of him learning about it through exposition (talking to the 'Librarian' program) seemed like kind of the lazy way to explain the plot. The part I didn't like was that it didn't really seem to make sense, he tried to explain away a lot of things - like how hackers are vulnerable to something that others aren't - that I didn't really buy.

Additionally, the motivation of the 'bad guys' wasn't there. Why were they doing what they were doing? I didn't buy it. Especially Raven. Even the motivation of the good guys. I understand Juanita - she wanted knowledge - but I didn't really see Hiro's motivation, or why Uncle Enzo was so willing to help Y.T. And the romance thing between Y.T. and Raven - wtf?

The ending was pretty shitty, too. The way that Raven was possibly killed, while neat (shattering all the knife weapons using a tool that was planted earlier) and the way that Uncle Enzo may or may not have been killed, I didn't get.

They also forgot to give it an ending. What happened to Hiro? Y.T.? Uncle Enzo? The people on the Raft? Y.T.'s mom? The president? It seems like they left a lot that never got explained. And why was the President even introduced? He didn't do a thing!

All that said, this was one of his first books, and it was definitely an enjoyable read.

Anybody else have opinions on it?
