A recent survey showed that 6 out of 7 dwarfs are not happy.


Alive, still.

Just another boring update.

Mom passed away Sept 25th. Which of course has been devastating. Thrown myself back into work. I don't have much to say. Meh.


No blog updates in a billion years. I'm alive. :P

Lots of stuff going on, nothing blog worthy. :)

Consider the site in maintenance mode for now.

New Server For Personal Website

Just moved heliosj.net and my other playground toys over to a new VPS.

RamNode | High Performance SSD VPS

So far so good. Very reasonably priced -- and some nice futures.

* Data Center Located In The Netherlands, But Accepts USD
* Default/Native IPv6
* Full control over the reverse DNS (PTR) without having to submit a ticket, or otherwise.
* Dozens of install images to choose from (Centos, Fedora, Ubuntu, and other niche distributions)


EL 6.5

RedHat has updated openssl which now allows for TLS 1.2 in Apache and other SSL capable daemons. Woohoo (and it's about time). Most browsers had mitigated the BEAST issue, but this helps.
