Miscelleny

Posted in Life on December 20th, 2004

Well, one of two things has ocurred since the last entry: either I have not had a single attempt to spam my comments (unlikely) or I have managed to defeat the spammers for the moment. The latter, I think, is the more likely.

The job search continues, with some interesting leads in the fire – one is with a telco company that another former US OnLine employee works at, so I may have an ‘in’ as it were. We’ll see how that goes, but hope for another thaat sounds really promising – one of the tech support outsourcers in town is setting up a new office and needs to staff it. I picked a good time to cal lthem out of the blue.

For those of you looking for a really good boot disc to use in triaging broken Windoze installations, Knoppix is up to version 3.7 on the mirrors. Booting from a Knoppix cd gets you into a complete Linux system with access to the entire hard drive and the peripherals. This lets you delete, replace or repair infected files or access the cd burner to recover data before doing a nuke-n-pave.

Mmmm…nuke-n-pave…

Okay, that’s enough for right now. Maybe you’ll get real content tomorrow.
