Math::Giac is a go. Released that recently and am happy with it. Need to begin writing some RPN stuff now. Want to be able to use algebra in a RPN like fashion like with some late model HPs.

The module below allows executing giac lines from within perl. For any one not familiar, giac i a CAS, Computer Algebra System.

So 300 HAMR is now a SAAMI spec...

I really don't understand the appeal. It is meant to duplicate .30-30 Win, but 7.62x39mm already does that perfectly well. The only real upside is a .308 bullet instead of .311. But that is only relevant if you reload and already do something that takes a .308 and even then sourcing .311 is trivial.

I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

Todo list for the weekend 3 nights from now...

1: Look into porting csdr to FreeBSD.

2: Bench mark rtl_fm, csdr, and GNU Radio for analog demodulation.

Sadly looks like the end result will be going with GNU Radio as something that supports piping, does analog demodulation, and is a command line tool is not really something that exists in any real notable or useful manner.

The only real one I've found is csdr, which appears to have some issues from the initial look.

Wrote this recently. This allows one to run a command on a host in a cluster with the lowest load or RAM usage. Useful for if you have a small cluster you are are using for what ever and want to automatically kick off a job on the one with most resources.

I am now the proud owner of a Unimat SL DB200. :3 Can't wait for it to arrive.

Blarg. I hate to say it, but I am putting learning my python on my todo list as that drek language is sadly in vogue when it comes to devops, even though perl + rex is much nicer.

Device::RAID::Poller 0.0.0 published.

Polls FreeBSD GEOM mirror, Linux mdadm, and ZFS so far. Plan to next add support for MegaCLI.

Also has JSON or nagios/icinga reporting as well. :3

Been running Poudriere for package building now for a few months and I've absolutely been loving it. Makes pushing out packages with custom build options to everything very trivial.

Developing a colorized and enhanced netstat has been going nicely. It can search based on CIDR, port, and more. :3

Just replaced sysutils/fsc with sysutils/monit and so far am loving it. Got tired of fscd occasionally freaking out and going in crazy loops when it comes to restarting stuff over and over.

An oldie, but a goldie. Yes, there are different qualities of random.

yeah! icu strikes again

Honestly icu is a package I really hate upgrading. It seems like anytime I upgrade it, there is always something that did not get properly bumped or is not properly marked as a depend or something.

Spent like 30 minutes trying to figure out what has happening with dovecot and PHP and why webmail was starting to be funny.

So apparently bits of php fail silently if it wants icu can get it. In this case it resulted in the IMAP module reporting issues connecting to the IMAP server.
