Ran­dall Stross has a dis­turb­ing ana­lys­is of the text mes­saging pri­cing struc­ture over at the NYT[1]. [1] http://ping.fm/wkUUs While this is a ana­lys­is of the US telco SMS stack, it’s pretty applic­able to the Aus­trali­an gang of four as well. An inter­est­ing (and some­what dis­turb­ing) read.

It’s Monday morn­ing, and I am still recov­er­ing from the Ele­fant Trax 10 year anniversary party. Massive night, awe­some tunes and a wicked vibe throught the area. One of the best Aus­trali­an hip hop nights that I’ve ever been to, so big up to the ET crew. Look­ing for­ward to the next one next dec­ade!

Appar­ently one of my employ­er­’s coloca­tion data cen­ters has nearly all of its employ­ees off today — who would have thought the US elec­tion would be so pop­u­lar in Aus­tralia?

Thanks to Adam’s cus­tom ker­nel grabbed from http://ping.fm/gllx0 I’m now run­ning Xubuntu on my Eee PC. Boom Xfce4! Actu­ally glad that I went for the non sol­id state HDD mod­el too. I’ve kept the machine in a dual OS boot (Windows/Linux) for the moment, mainly to keep the work and ran­dom inter­net­ting modes (a bit) sep­ar­ate.

“The great thing about mod_rewrite is it gives you all the con­fig­ur­ab­il­ity and flex­ib­il­ity of Send­mail. The down­side to mod_rewrite is that it gives you all the con­fig­ur­ab­il­ity and flex­ib­il­ity of Send­mail.” — Bri­an Behlendorf’s quote still rings true, even after 8+ years with heavy use of mod_rewrite.
