Worlds Apart

Posted by Simon Welsh | 1 July 2011 | Comments (1)

I am the only one to blame for this
Somehow it all ends up the same
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
I flew too high and like Icarus I collide
With a world I try so hard to leave behind
To rid myself of all but love
to give and die


Connecting to a WiFi network using Terminal in Snow Leopard

Posted by Simon Welsh | 4 June 2011 | Comments (1)

The server that runs the Welshs Books point of sales system decided to pick a sad and failed to finish booting. It's a Mac Mini running Mac OS Server 10.6(.7). After taking it home, setting it up headless and doing some magic I got it to finish booting and could SSH in over an ethernet cable.

Since I'm a nice admin with full root access to a system I don't use, I figured I may as well run softwareupdate while it's sitting on my desk (cause the ADSL it's normally on sucks). Instead of turning on internet sharing, I started finding out how to get the server to join my wifi. Normally this involves clicking on a menu item, pasting my password and hoping I got my password right. Turns out it's a lot harder to do via the command line.


Goodbye teenager-hood

Contrary to popular belief, I am not ≥25, but am only 19. Though that's changing sometime soon. As such, you should all get me "leaving teenager-ness" gifts, or something. I've even made a small list of some of the things I may want and my previous list is probably mostly still accurate, though you could be creative as well. Creativity is occasionally fun, I'm just no good at it :)

Comment moderation

I'm tired of spam coming in when I'm sleeping, so I now need to manually approve every comment.

I'm back, baby!

So, lent is now over. That means I can have my social life back. If I haven't tweeted already, it probably means I'm asleep and will be tweeting again later today! Woohoo!

Given that I didn't miss Facebook at all, it can stay blocked. Cause who cares about it?


You're a turtle!

Thought patterns

I found this on Libra, dated at 2138 on 2010-12-23. I can't be bothered reading it, but I assume it was just whatever I was thinking at the time that I could type fast enough to record. Henjoy.

They're still pushing this? When will governments learn that bowing to the power hungry RIAA just pisses off the populace?



Random pages

Posted by Simon Welsh | 9 April 2011 | Comments (2)

I got bored of only looking at old posts when I noticed bots hitting them in my access logs and I can be bothered having a look. So, I added a random page link. It's just up there, inbetween (or sometimes below) the previous and next page links.

Man, I was even more of a knob back then than I am now.

Who has four awesomes and could spend all day in bed with them if he wanted to?

I attended the ICF (I think) quiz night, and came away with, amongst other things, a new cuddly. He's called Clyde now :)

He's cuddly and stuff too :)


Flat warming!

Posted by Simon Welsh | 18 March 2011 | Comments (3)

For those few of you that don't know, I have left the apparent warmth of Kilbirnie to the frozen wastelands of Karori*. Due to the frozen nature of the suburb (or something like that), I apparently need to have a flat warming. So, let's do this.

My flat warming will be on April the 2th, that's the Saturday a fortnight from tomorrow, starting at say 1300. So I have enough time to wake up and clean up and stuff. If people are still around at dinner time, we can order pizza. Mmm, pizza. I might order some anyway.

The flat's at 38B Verviers Street, Karori.

I should also mention there'll be no alcohol and there may be wifi. If you would like the wifi password, it'll pay to let me know beforehand so I can send it to you (it's 32 random characters. You don't want to have to type it). I make no guarantee that you will be able to get on, or even see the network (my phone can't).
