I hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving. Who can’t love a holiday that revolves around food, family and football?
I’ve been spending a bit of time lately attempting to make Postfix and SASL work to send email through another email server since SBC blocks port 25. Long story short, I was getting nowhere. So, I go to SBC’s website to see if perhaps, they have instructions on how to do it (they don’t). I found something even better though, they will, upon request, remove the port 25 block.
Coming soon: email from my webserver.
I ran across a story about Google implementing a program where they pay money to people who refer others to Firefox downloads with the Google Toolbar installed.
There’s also a nifty project called Internet Explorer Destroyer that displays a nice little page recommending you switch when you visit this page. For those of you using IE, I’m sure you’ve already seen it.
Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve updates, school has kept me far too busy for my own liking. I’ve managed to sneak in a bit of fun though.
On the 22nd of October, Sarah (a friend from my freshman year that I’ve started hanging out with again) and I headed out to the Lake Superior Pro Rally for some fun. I didn’t take any pictures this time, but I ran into a site with really great ones. I really should start saving up for a very nice digital SLR. I’m looking at a couple thousand dollars for that though, so I know it won’t happen anytime soon.
The next weekend, on the 28th, was the Linux Users Group Install-a-thon that we put on every semester for the students at Michigan Tech. The turnout wasn’t as great as it has been in past semesters, but it wasn’t on the greatest of days. Some pictures from the event can be found here.
And this past week has been pretty lengthy. I had an oral presentation on Wednesday, and an exam on both Thursday and Friday. I think they turned out well, but school is starting to wear me down quite a bit. I went to see Wedding Crashers with Sarah last night… absolutely hilarious movie.
Time to shower and gear up for the outdoors though, I’m getting some airsoft in today.
