Syslog is crap - or at least I thought so

I have been playing around with syslog for an hour or two, trying to figure out how to log sshd related messages in a separate file. When I found out that it is impossible to specify a log-file for the ssh daemon only I thought: “What CRAP!”.

… but only for a short while until an intelligent person pointed out the obvious:

debian:~# grep sshd /var/log/auth.log > /tmp/sshd

Going digital - but to what purpose

Yesterday I recieved my Digital certificate from TDC. TDC provides digital certificates for danish citizents. I succesfully installed it in Firefox and Thunderbird but I’m having trouble when sending emails signed with my certificate…. When I recieve them I’m told that the email can have been altered since it was sent - WTF?!?

Dunno if sending emails throug SPAM assassin, virus scan etc. alters the email so the digital signing fails. Well I hope I find some über geek who can help me out :)

My farvorites Debian and GNOME

A new beta of the Sarge Debian-Installer has been released and I must say that I’m impressed :) Soon I will be able to make all my friends try it!

USB CD-ROM drives, USB keys, SATA disks nothing is stopping this new installer! Try it!

The developers are moving closer to the next stable release of Debian (Sarge): Wed Mar 17 08:00:00 UTC 2004

Release-critical bugs in unstable: 502 Release-critical bugs in testing: 201 (and still counting down)

An other great thing is that the 2.6 version of Gnome will be released on 25. march… I can’t wait!

I played it for about an hour and I’m impressed! Allready from start it is alot more variated than the first game. I seems alot more like Ratchet & Clank which I think is good.

Why oh why is Internet Explorer NOT a friend of mine?

Every time I make a homepage I try to use tableless design and css and every time Internet Explorer craps my homepage totally up! Microsoft can bundle their browser as much they want but with their market share they should a least show some responsibility and provide the masses with a standard compilant browser.

Just needed to get needed to get my anger out :) Sorry!

UPDATE: The thing I was fiddeling with was a proposal for a new frontpage for

BTW. try download Mozilla FireFox, which is a great browser. You can find it in Debians testing and unstable repository with the package name mozilla-firefox.
