Bill Bryson (A Short History of Almost Everything) knows how to write rich and engaging history books (he's a remarkable storyteller). One Summer is a spectacular book for understanding America in the mad 1920s (and all the craziness around Charles Lindbergh, including early aviation history). A must read.
I've recently found this when I was trying to fix a nameserver config issue with resolvconf on Ubuntu. When resolvconf populates /etc/resolv.conf, it will read what we have configured in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d (head, base, tail, etc) and also any dns-server declared in /etc/network/interfaces.

I am in the process of moving everything from marques.cx to my new domain, which will cease to exist in a few months.

Decidi arranjar mais tempo para ficar offline e consegui acabar de ler o The Big Bang do Simon Singh e O Desertor do Daniel Silva. O livro que se segue: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (Michael Chabon) e em audiobook tenho o The Lazarus Volt, do Tom Harper.
Acabadinho de ver, The Way Back, o último do Peter Weir. Recomendo. Faz-me lembrar o Rescue Dawn, do mestre Herzog. Se houver tempo, há crítica para breve.
Just found out that my Time Machine SparseBundle is corrupt. I thought that it would be cool to save some money and hack Time Machine to enable backups to a Network Share on my home NAS instead of buying Time Capsule. It worked perfectly for a month or so, but I've done some changes on … Continue reading Time Machine and NAS Hacks
