FISA

July 9, 2008

If you follow politics in the U.S. you that Congress is set to give our President the power to illegally wiretap American citizens.  Breaking the 4th amendment is unacceptable and Senators voting to approve this is unacceptable.  Wikipedia has a good article.  I whipped up a quick comic to express how the whole idea comes across.

I also find articles such as this deplorable. My favoriteleast favorite line is “Currently, FBI agents need specific reasons — like evidence or allegations that a law probably has been violated — to investigate U.S. citizens and legal residents”.

I can’t wait to vote.

disk image

June 6, 2008

Dear lazy web.

I am going to install a new system (Debian and some embedded timesys Linux) and I would like to back it up in a smart, quick way.  Ideally, I would like to do a disk image or something like that.  A network backup (rsync) wouldn’t be bad but I’m looking for a fast, easy and reliable way of backing up.  I would be willing to sacrifice fast, but it needs to be easy and reliable…anyways, whats the best bet?
