Home network upgrade

Today I’ve completed the second stage (out of three) in upgrading my home server. First one was upgrading Red Hat Linux 7.3 to Red Hat Linux 9.0. Today, I’ve upgraded the hardware. Now it runs on the Intel Celeron 1.2GHz processor with 256MB of RAM. Upgrade was as simple as moving a bit of hardware around. No reconfiguration needed at all. Red Hat detected all hardware changes just fine.

During the next stage I will move most of the hard disks out of this machine and in to the old hardware, which will be my home file server. That will allow me to upgrade hard disk space easily in the future.

Anyway, enjoy new speeds. Next downtime is in a week or so.

The Hunted

The HuntedI went to see “The Hunted” with Tommy Lee Jones who played Agent K in “Men in Black” and Benicio Del Toro who is also known as Franky Four Fingers in “Snatch.“.

Overall the movies was not bad. Actually, I would even say that it was a good one. Two things did a little spoil on it though. First one was a break for coke and chips at the worst possible moment (when Aaron Hallam was cought and was talking about 6 million chicken dieing each year). And another one was closer to the end of the movie, when both Aaron and L.T.Bonham were making knives of stone and of metal. That was too much. On the other hand, considering that both were highly trained pro’s and that they could have used something else for the weapon, the audience would probably not understand anything (like you and this very long sentance).

Anyway. The whole movie was nice. It reminded me of “First Blood” (aka Rambo) sometimes. Knive fights were excellent. Especially the last one – fast, quiet, bloody, and to the point. The jungle/forest setup was nice too. Kind of miss proper forest being in this country…

Joe Rogan’s website

Spent most of the day browsing through Joe Rogan’s web site. He is the guy you see every time in Fear Factor. Apparently, he is a moderately-known comedian in USA. He also seems to have an opinion on everything…and most of the times it’s not what you expect to hear. There are few MP3s on his site with interviews and comedy bits (the staff on independent films, princess Di, cloning Jesus, and Bush vs Al Gore is really funny). He also does some music, which can be probed from his site. And to finish this holy picture – he plays Quake3! The site is an interesting mixture of opionions on random staff, pictures of his nude friend, links to pornography, music reviews and just about anything else. Check it out.

Watching “Fear Factor” episode with twins on TV in the evening. One of those plesent moments when good guys win.
