Thousands of terrorism suspects “disappearing” into thin air should be cause for alarm for Johnston County natives. The Guantánamo Detention Camp opened its doors under the Bush Administration on January 11, 2002 and the politically charged atmosphere of our world has never been the same.
Over the course of ten long years, thousands of terrorism suspects have been unlawfully detained, while others have simply “disappeared”, secretly taken on the American administration’s orders to be interrogated and sometimes tortured the world over. Although some suspects were likely guilty of heinous acts, many were not. All were treated without regard for due process, human rights or morals in the sake of fighting a “War on Terror”. The United States’ victims of “extraordinary rendition” are largely forgotten as we prepare to bring in yet another new year. Continue reading
Reading the lay of the light and being able to freeze a precise image from a
moment in time is simply a magical thing to me… especially if it conveys emotion and/or tells the viewer a story.

Do you have a Dynamic IP address for your server? Need a way to keep track of the address when it changes?
I ran into this problem while using a DYN-DNS service. When I forgot to renew the address, the server would become unreachable using the URL.
When you factor in an IP address that refreshes with each reboot of the modem, it can quickly turn into a nightmare trying to SSH in and check on things from an off-site location (which is 98% of my time) when DNS goes south.

Shot with a Nikon D80, stock flash, white 8.5″x11″ paper and 120mm AF Nikkor Macro lens. Can’t remember the shot specs off top.

Here’s a script that I run as a daily cron, to “send an email to myself”, which in turn comes directly to my iPhone. What this does is quite simple, as you can see on the commented lines. Continue reading
This is a rather lengthy topic and I’ll focus simply on the two scripts I rely on most for backing up my systems.
One of the most important, if not THE most important aspects of running a web server is backups and redundancy. Continue reading
Time churns like a river,
Emptying into the abyss…
From which it will never return.
There is no shore.
There is no haven.
Alright, guys. What we have here isn’t a portfolio or gallery of a collection of the best photographs I’ve so far taken.
This is actually just a compilation of some of the photos I’ve shot over the last couple years that each stand out to me as “interesting” or just a shot that I learned something from. Some of them, I flat-out had a blast taking! Continue reading
