How do I create multiple large files that consume no extra diskspace?

Create multiple Hardlinks to one or more files.  Change the names of the Hardlinks to suit.

one of the many reasons I dislike allegedly-new newegg

Filed under: category euthanized,Justice,Word Coined by Himself,Xboxen — Sagacious Himself @ 10:22 am

one of the many reasons I dislike allegedly-new newegg

Please kindly note that the order # [a number] was used Egg Saver (DHL); after reviewing your account, we notice that your order has already been shipped out on [a date]  with DHL tracking number [a number]. Please kindly note that the item actually ships with a DHL tracking number and it is then distributed to USPS so that they can then deliver it to you.

In this case, it does ship out with DHL first but it takes 4-5 business days to update the information. Usually, it takes 3 to 7 business days for the package to be delivered to you. If you cannot receive the package after 7 business days, please reply to this email so that we can further assist you. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.

Not only does allegedly-new newegg merely eventually ship the package but they cannot be bothered to surround all surfaces of the enclosed retail box with padding material inside the shipping container as outlined by carriers (UPS, FedEx, et al).  Perhaps they do not understand that I prefer my new retail product to arrive in new condition.  Having seen how UPS handles packages within a UPS facility I shall not accept poorly packaged items.  Fighting over $200 is not worth the time, but as a matter of justice it is.

CDW knows how to treat both packages and customers.  Sure it does help to have ordering power backed by a multibillion dollar multinational company.. that usually wins me free overnight shipping on my personal CDW account.  🙂

California half a billion dollars to sit and think about carpet

Filed under: Gross Politix,sigh — Sagacious Himself @ 10:44 am

Why is california bankrupt?  Perhaps spending $500,000,000, part on “sitting”, studying carpet standards.  How much does sitting pay??


California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard


The department consists of six divisions, 23 operational offices, 4,000 employees and a budget in excess of half a billion dollars. Its diverse functions include e-commerce and telecommunications; sitting, acquisition, development, leasing, disposal and management…

To what end?

The purpose of the California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard is to establish consistent requirements for sustainable carpet products. These requirements are intended to form the basis of conformity assessment programs, such as third-party certification or registration.   Sustainable carpet products that comply with the Draft Standard may be certified or registered to the California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard, if the products also comply with the additional prerequisite credits and requirements defined in this Standard (see Table 3). Following the completion of the ANSI process for the Draft Standard, the State of California will reevaluate its adoption of the California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard to determine if the new ANSI Standard meets the State’s environmentally preferable objectives.

openDNS alternative by easyDNS

Filed under: CIO — Sagacious Himself @ 12:19 pm

easyDNS launches no frills, pure DNS lookups – fully patched

Some of our members have expressed reservations around using any DNS resolver that “alters” the traffic in any way, including typos and non-existent domains. Which is good news for us, because we’ve done this so fast we haven’t had time to build anything like that even if we wanted to. What we did want to do is provide a couple of DNS resolvers for use by our members (or anybody else) who just want to know they’re using a system run by people who are actively following this situation and are proactively keeping their own resolvers and caching nameservers as secure as the protocol allows.

With this in mind we’ve turned up today. No website, no user interface, at the moment it’s just a couple of resolvers with the latest security patches in place and that will continue to do so, open to use by anybody who wants. We have no idea where this will go, and it’s not really an official easyDNS “service” per se. But we wanted to do something to give our members options.

If you want to use, the details are as follows: -> ->

setup modified Mozilla Weave on cPanel web disk with apache 2.0.63

Filed under: CIO,DARPA,firefox,Geeky goodness — Sagacious Himself @ 12:17 am

(1) login  to cPanel 11

(2) web disk (borked webDAV)

(3) username: XXX (in subdomain for me)

(4a) path can be above public_html

(4b) path: /public_html/[subdomaindir]/_isolateuser1/

(4c) optionally enable basic auth, but no for now

(4d) cPanel will report username creation as but you’ll be proving only XXX for sanity to weave extension

(5) in FTP client (FlashFXP) navigate to directory containing selected subdomain and user in (3)

(6a) create an XXX subdirectory — weave will assume it exists

(6b) create:  XXX/crypto, XXX/keys, XXX/meta

(6c) inside XXX/meta create a version file containing only the number 3

(7a) modify the latest weave XPI ( ): append dot zip to filename, open in WinRAR or equivalent,

(7b) in install.rdf change em:name to something like “weave [mywebhostprovider]”,

(7c) in \defaults\preferences\sync.js set extensions.weave.serverURL to — without the cPanel  port one would have great fun with paths

(7d)  in \defaults\preferences\sync.js set extensions.weave.username to XXX

(7e) if creating a modified XPI for multiple profile- or person use skip 7d and enter username on weave use post install

(8) change addon’s file extension back to XPI

(9) drag XPI into firefox, yada yada, restart firefox

(10) BEFORE singing into weave, weave:preferences, data tab: tick only bookmars — to simplify testing for you

(11) if 7e then enter XXX, if not XXX should be already entered … weave:sign in, enter password, tick save, sign in


+ iterate 4b: _isolateuser[N] for each person’s account or name to suit

+ AFTER you can login and PUT files without error then enable basic auth for the directory in 4b

Father Corapi, awesome Catholic priest stoops to implementing DRM on apologetics videos

Filed under: CIO,DARPA,Faith_,Knowledge — Sagacious Himself @ 10:43 pm

Say what?

Spread the gospel, but don’t forget to restrict its use and limit its playback.  That doesn’t sound like it complies with Pope John Paul II reiteration of use of modern media to spread God’s message. [citation pending]

It’s well past time to euthanize those who have a history of voting socialism into our society, bills or people.  Since they don’t value individuality, let alone the sanctity of life I’m sure they won’t mind.
