Windows advances, Cutting out the middle-man

So I have a nice weekend of real-world non-technical activities ahead of me. A welcome end to a week of insanely busy school work, and a welcome break before the threat of exams 2 weeks away becomes real. I’ve been working on a few projects - centralized logging and analysis ...

Short Commentary

Just a short note today - it’s an insanely busy week. I’ve been finishing up the web GUI for my print accounting system (previously mentioned) and had to dive into CUPS/IPP to pull out information on whether or not a print job is printed in duplex. I’ve ...

Blacklists, Network Performance, New Project, XKCD
