Computer Role Playing Games

Great blog entries on why RPG on cmoputers is not all that much fun:

http://www.eternal-silence.net/blog/?p=50 - Dan' Blog - I don’t like RPGs

I totally agree - and I would add my main reason RPG isn't fun - they've taken out all the role-playing and the group action (in the same room) that I recall being the best parts of pen+paper role-playing games.

Zabbix + ssh tunnel with AutoSSH

I've spent a fair amount of time setting up a Zabbix system monitoring system to monitor the functioning of the LAN computers - Gentoo and Windows. Other than Zabbix 1.1.7 being a little tedious to set up, including the various add-on scanners I've configured, its fairly easy.

However, monitoring computers outside the LAN has been tricky, as I want to do it securely. Zabbix sends its info (at least in this version) through clear text, and I'd like to have in encrypted.

After several attempts at configuring AutoSSH (over several months :roll: ) I made some progress - first this article had some handy steps for testing:

Eighth wonder of the world?

from the article:

Nestling in the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy, 30 miles from the ancient city of Turin, lies the valley of Valchiusella. Peppered with medieval villages, the hillside scenery is certainly picturesque.

But it is deep underground, buried into the ancient rock, that the region's greatest wonders are concealed.

Here, 100ft down and hidden from public view, lies an astonishing secret - one that has drawn comparisons with the fabled city of Atlantis and has been dubbed 'the Eighth Wonder of the World' by the Italian government.

For weaving their way underneath the hillside are nine ornate temples, on five levels, whose scale and opulence take the breath away.

Constructed like a three-dimensional book, narrating the history of humanity, they are linked by hundreds of metres of richly decorated tunnels and occupy almost 300,000 cubic feet - Big Ben is 15,000 cubic feet.

- from the article:

Scott Maxwell must have one of the best IT jobs in the solar system ... Would you describe your job as a "dream tech-job"?

Yes. Oh, my, yes. I've often said that I have the best job on two planets, and you can believe it.
