Gibson Island (I want to go to there)


I turned away at the unmanned Gibson Island gate today. Gibson Island is a scenic 2.5mi x 1.25 mi island owned by its ~600 residents, and admittance is not granted to the public. It sounds like you may be able to demand brief access past the gates to mail a letter at their federal post office, but you might be better off devoting time to your own finances so that you can get proper access to the island one day :).

Dropbear SSH Keys (on gumstix and beyond)

In order to get rid of ssh passwords for dropbear, you need to set up ssh rsa public/private keys. Google ssh-keygen, its pretty straightforward.

The trick is that SSH is very picky about permissions. On the dropbear box, make sure to chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file, chmod 700 ~/.ssh and (this is the weird part) chmod 700 ~ as well!

If your problems persist try starting dropbear with -E, that will spit the debug output to stderr (which is probably your console by default).

I wasn’t able to find this solution anywhere else on the net.

I think I whomped my managerial accounting mid-term. Only about 20 more midterms to go and I’ll be a master of business. And then… watch out

Edit: Bill H sent this video to me. Please all forward all well-wishes and props to him.

Brewer’s Art Resurrection is powerful and delicious but it can dilapidate your Sunday. On the upshot, hangovers beget site updates.

Check out the photo stream thing on the right. I set it up so I can take pictures with my cellphone and they will pop-up over there. Metal.

Also, this.

Vampire Weekend

“The most notable previous project of the band is L’Homme Run, a rap group that Ezra Koenig formed during his time at university. The group was meant to be funny, but not actually a joke, a distinction which Ezra says ultimately doomed the project.”

Randy Savage on crack. I’m not using that phrase as a cliche. It’s either crack or regular cocaine he’s on.

Are you laughing because that is ridiculous… or because you’re psyched?
