roto-router is at 104 days uptime. Its good having that kind of reminder about how much of a badass I am… Its been operating with no maintenance since june, and I haven’t had a single complaint.

And before you get all cutesy and say “but if its not even in the same county as you, of course no one will complain… its obviously not being used!” let me just point out that it is a dns and mail server, and an internet gateway, and it does get used biatch!

So, I’m in talking to my dad and I notice roto-router is making some noise… so I check my logs and I see a stream of packet deny messages from a cnm addy. I hop into #ugf for the first time since the battle with james and gilli, to see who’s on that ip… I glance down the list and I whois didi, gilli, dalbert, and what’s this?! gn0me is on… heh, sure enough!

So I ask gn0me if he’s having fun portscanning me… he says no, not yet… I told him he was getting blocked and that I figured he got about as much info as he was going to get and he cut the scan off. I cat’ed the messages file, greped it for that ip, and output to a file… over 250k! damn, man!

So, I told him the ports that I have open, and the ports that he’d be able to hit through gte’s filters… he had to run, though.

That was somewhat entertaining… some nice clean fun.
