First R/C Plane Video

Here is a video of my first R/C flights. On my first landing I almost hit the cameraman, but all was good – only bent the landing gear a tiny bit which was easily bent back. The video turned out pretty good, and all was created/rendered using iLife ’06 on Mac OS X 10.4.3 (running on an AMD CPU…hmm…)

How I got my digg.com back…

For a few weeks now, I have been unable to access digg.com through my work’s internet connection. I have been unable to determine where the problem lies, so I decided to access it via an SSH tunnel. Here is the command I used:

sudo ssh -l *_username_* -L:*_localport_*:*_remotehost_*:*_remoteport_* *_tunnelhost_*

With all the blanks filled in, here is my final command:

sudo ssh -l seppler -L:80:digg.com:80 epplersoft.com

Then, I modifyed my /etc/hosts file to and added the following line:

127.0.0.1 digg.com

Now, I can access digg.com from work and home via my SSH tunnel.

…And that’s how I got my digg back.
