bitrot Someone contacted me on IRC and informed me that he was having trouble getting blowssi to run.

The key exchange perl module in blowssi, Crypt::ircDH1080 depends on Crypt::Random, which in turn depends on Math::Pari

- The problem: Pari does not seem to compile with recent versions of gcc, and the upstream source seems to have gone dead. Got to love bitrot. To resolve this problem, I have patched Crypt::ircDH1080 to remove the Math::Random dependency. It now uses /dev/urandom directly. This has some implications for portability and possibly the quality of the key randomness, so only use this patched module if you are having trouble with the original ircDH1080 module. Download for the patched module is on the blowssi download page.

scrot Added links to scrot/giblib repositories as I'm helping to maintain it now. Added live ebuilds to the repo for gentoo. Scrot is now also in the opencsw repositories for Solaris. (Also compiles and run great on Irix, will work on a tardist later).

rclockd A recent freelance project was to write a unix daemon for a radio clock. No driver for GNU/Linux was available, only the original windows Dephi source. The client agreed to license this project under the GNU GPL license,- in case any one else out there has a radio clock like this, they can now easily use it with alternative operating systems. rclockd.

nagios I constantly write scripts for my server admin work. Most of the time these are not very re-usable. Recently I've been writing some Nagios plugins, and I figured I would share these.
