God loves us and loves to see us happy
I have updated the my wine list. New to the list are a couple of Cabernet Sauvignons and a wonderful Bordeaux.

From What Dreams May Come
Harpers online has a well written, and thought provoking, article entitled “The Ecstasy of Influence.” It is about plagiarism and the role of influence on creative work. Besides, rare is the author that can reference both The Simpsons and Heidegger in the same article.

And the truth…
I have been glued to Cato-at-liberty for the last couple days. Cato-at-liberty is the official blog for The Cato Institute, the definitive classical conservative think-tank. I have become so sick of both parties (Democons and Repulicrates), and their constant hypocrisy that I haven’t even been able to blog about them. Reading the posts on Cato-at-liberty has been like a breath of fresh air for me. While I may still catch the occational literary trash; I have basically given up on intelligent political discussion, from the any mainstream media source.

Mail Server on OpenSuse
Quick link to a mail server install that I have been working on for a client. These are simply some notes on getting SMMP, cyrus-sasl, Postfix, and POP3 working with SSL. The information also includes creating public key certificates and signing them. The intended platform is OpenSuse 10.2
The notes are based on a HowToForge.net article titled The Perfect Setup: OpenSuSE 10.2.

I have been converting some of my old cvs repositories to subversion with cvs2svn. It is a pretty handy little tool (even if it is fairly limited.) Here are a couple hints I had to figure out via trail and error.
Public and Private… Parts.
I constantly forget how to setup a shared key environment for OpenSSH. It is pretty easy to find a tutorial on The Linux Documentation Project or How-To Forge but why do that when I can just have one here for me to find. This is a quick-and-dirty example of generating public and private keys, using shared-key authentication, and configuring an SSH agent. Eventually I will write a kde-agent so you don’t have to use the gnome one… but that is for another post.
