It's finally happened.. after years of construction... The L train

has gone automatic.

I thought aside from signalling, the problem was being able to supply power to a lot of trains in a small area.

Dunno about 'old' vi, but vim has both wrap and nowrap modes
available.

A HA! So you ADMIT! you don't use vi. :-)

The problem was getting rid of the engineers without getting killed by the transit workers union. In the end they came up with the lovely solution of keeping the engineers on the trains, but they won't actually be *operating* the trains.

This is another example of "progress."

maybe we'll find another app to plug onto citadel files..

This is the gamer's form of 'agree' where you're also suggesting it's okay to 'aggro' the mobs.

Jesus people. Use dyndns.org to VNC from work, serve out your porn collection, web interface to download stuff from newsgroups while you're out, setup a game server for the weekend, as a dev server - you don't use DDNS for enterprise solutions. If you want that, then pay the enterprise prices and buck up for the service to your house or pay for some rackspace. Otherwise, expect your shit to go down/break/be blocked.

Blocks on port 80 can be overcome with port redirection. More and more mail servers are using port 587 for mail these days anyway; there is also tunneling you could do from a proxy, etc. Again, if you want a static IP, go pay for one.

I wasn't aware eclipse was available for the terminal.

It Is Actually That Amazing.

How can blocks on port 80 be overcome with port redirection?
I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just always trying to add to my arsenal of ways of getting around firewalls?
At work I can't web out to anything except port 80, and at home I can't listen on port 80 so it's impossible for me to hit my webserver from work. You know a way around this?

I'm sure there are other ways. My ISP doesn't block 80, so I've only heard second hand.

Wouldn't it be easier to serve you web on another port (open, but non-standard) and proxy a VPS or something to that port?
You can get a VPS for $7 a month from here: http://www.rapidxen.net/
I have 2 or 3 of the $10 ones. Uptime is ~96%, but the value is great. Beats trying to damn the man just to hit your web sites from work.

Also, can't you just SSH tunnel on port 80? Then you can do whatever you want.

Ditto that. I have a web server, WebCit, and Citadel running at home. I don't really like the idea of using something kind of hackish like DynDNS.org to keep my URLs working, so I pay the extra money for a static IP.

This said, I would *really* love to start getting into IPv6. I wish we'd just leap into that.

Paying extra for static IPs is not something your average joe blow consumer is going to do - that usually something an ENTERPRISE or BUSINESS would do. Using dyndns was suggested to serve out porn, game servers on the weekends, etc - not to run servers you expect to have 100% uptime. Which part of that was confusing?

I dunno... I'm not either an ENTERPRISE or BUSINESS, but then, I accept that I'm not the usual case.

However, I could kind of imagine a statistically-important number of users in my position... technicians, geeks, or just folks who work from home who want a static IP for the technical reasons that I have for wanting one.

Of course, IPv6 would do much to solve this kind of problem.

The other disadvantage to using dyndns is speed.  My upload speed is everly restricted.  To access my server at home from work is effectivly uploading from my home computer to work.  doesn't work out so well for file transfer and the like.  Pity, I would like to be able to access my music collection from anywhere.  Right now I have most options turned off on my citadel to limit bandwidth usage.  Besides, technically Comcast could cut me off for even running a server from my home.

 

BTW, my cit is:  http://yggdrasill.servebbs.net

 

Try not to break anything if you visit.

Comcast was harrassing me a few weeks ago so I set up iptables white list. Now packets, specifically port scans, get dropped from comcast. As far as they can tell, I'm not running anything, but from select IPs I've got all sorts of shit going.
Granted the upstream is only 2Mbit, but if I need something, I can get to it. I've also got various VPS servers across the net, but I don't like my data sitting on other people's servers.
I'd like comcast to define exactly what a "server" is. A server is a service or program; for instace, the web interface on your router is a server, or (like on my Cisco router) the SSH is a 'server'. Everything is a server. XP file & print sharing is a server. Every customer who runs XP or uses a router is in violation of that policy.
So, I guess, if you're skilled enough to run a server, you should be skilled enough to block comcast from scanning for them. At least that's what works for me.

The funny thing is that I *have* a static ip ... and lately I've been struggling with the question of whether to let it go and switch to a provider that's cheaper and faster. About a year and a half ago I moved all of my server stuff into a proper data center.

I'm not serving for everyone. It's mostly for me when I'm remote so I can have access to my stuff. Nothing is mission critical.
I have a couple of VPS and a few clients, so I have an FTP setup on my linksys slug that I use to back up my stuff off site. It's actually on RAID 5 and gets backed up at the datacenter, but I'm anal when it comes to stuff like that I guess.

Are you thinking of Erythro (Jani)? He was from Finland.

You can probably find him on the 'net; when he went back to Finland he changed his screen name to Guru Gnosis Sahib.
