September 2009

We met at OmniTI again this month. Thank you, OmniTI!

I gave a talk [slides] about my recent migration for my mail/web server from i386 to amd64. I also discussed how I installed a ral(4) card in my Soekris to make it a wireless access point. Unfortunately, I think the card overheated my Soekris and crashed my firewall more than once. I have since removed the card.

  • 10 cm pigtails (card to antenna) times 3
  • Triple external antenna

After the meeting, we adjourned to Victoria Gastro Pub for dinner and libations.
