All ERATE P2 funding will be denied for FY 1-2013
Friday, February 28, 2014, 08:58 AMFor those of you that may not have seen this latest USAC announcement, it appears all P2 funding will be denied for FY 1-2013! Certainly NOT the news some of us wanted to hear.
2/27/2014 – Update on Priority 2 Commitments for FY2013
On February 7, 2014, the USAC Schools & Libraries Committee approved a resolution that authorized USAC to deny all FY2013 Priority 2 (Internal Connections and Basic Maintenance) requests at the 90 percent discount level upon FCC approval. On February 24, the FCC authorized USAC to proceed. These denials will start with FY2013 Wave 41, dated March 5, 2014.
Previously USAC had been authorized to deny all Priority 2 applications at the 89 percent discount level and below. As a result, USAC will fund no Priority 2 applications for FY2013.

Poulan Fuel Line Replacement (snarged)
Tuesday, February 25, 2014, 03:21 PMPoulan 2175 chainsaw Wild Thing fuel line replacement. I searched the entire internet to find good directions for replacing the fuel lines and was unsatisfied. However, now that I have done it I hope to provide good directions here. First if your lines have not crumbled into unrecognizable pieces then take note of everything. For this job you will need a phillips head screw driver a star head driver, pliers or socket set, scissors and a pair of forceps. Plus you should buy 2 feet of 1/8th inch tubing, 2 feet of 3/32 inch tubing, a new fuel filter and possibly a new Poulan purge/primer bulb. Take off two outer covers, the air filter and the carburetor you will have to detach the carburetor from the throttle wire (take note of how it connects). You will have to unseat both the blue choke and red on/off plastic switches. Turn the saw so the blade is off to your left. Now when you look into the cavity you should two holes going into the fuel tank. The big far one is the return. The little close one is the pickup. Take your bigger tubing and make a tapering cut about two inches long on one end. This gradual taper is the only way to feed the hose into the tight hole. push in the 2 inches of tapered cut and then reach into the tank with the forceps and grab the tubing. Slowly pull the tubing in to the tank and out the cap opening. This may mean you have to grab with the forceps and only pull an inch then regrab. Once you have enough out cut off the taper and put on a very small part that has a washer and a little tapered rubber end. The fuel will reenter the tank through here but the tapered end closes to keep it from reversing. Pull excess tubing back up until about an inch reamins in the tank. Next repeat with the smaller hose and smaller hole. Put the fuel filter on this and leave enough slack in the tank to have the filter move from side to side. Now reinstall the carburetor and connect the little hose to the black plastic upper fitting on the carburetor. Take the remaining small tubing and connect it to the brass carburetor fitting. Run both the small and large tubings under the carburetor toward the purge valve (toward you). The purge value has markings on it and the big fitting says tank and the little fitting says carb. Cut the tubing to a length about an inch longer than it will need. Put the big tube on the big fitting and the little tube on the little fitting. Put everything back together. The tricks in this advice are: the little tubing runs from the tank to the carburetor ( this doesn't seem logical to me) and that the primer is after the carb in the fuel flow ( another illogical thing). Hope this helps. 1/8 inch = 0.125 inches = 3.175 mm; 3/32 inch = 0.09375 inch = 2.38mm

Using DD to make a Fedora bootable USB
Wednesday, January 29, 2014, 10:29 AMThe Fedora Project recommends using livecd-tools rather than dd for creating USB media whenever possible.
Plug in your USB flash drive.
Find the flash drive's device name. If the media has a volume name, use it to look up the device name in /dev/disk/by-label, or use the findfs command:
If the media does not have a volume name or you do not know it, you can also use the dmesg command shortly after connecting the media to your computer. After running the command, the device name (such as sdb or sdc) should appear in several lines towards the end of the output.
Use the dd command to transfer the boot ISO image to the USB device:
su -c 'dd if=path/image_name.iso of=/dev/device bs=block size'
where path/image_name.iso is the boot ISO image file that you downloaded and device is the device name for the USB flash drive. Ensure you specify the device name (such as sdc), not the partition name (such as sdc1). The bs option specifies the block size; it can be omitted, but specifying it will speed up the process. For example:
su -c 'dd if=~/Downloads/Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-20-1.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=512k'

to me, leif021
Dear Google Apps Administrator,
Important: We discovered an issue that resulted in some of your Google Apps paisd.net users’ messages being incorrectly placed in their Trash, Spam, or other folders. The issue affected users’ actions only in Gmail for iOS, Gmail in a mobile browser, and Gmail Offline.
The issue is now fixed. However, users must take action to re-file these messages in Gmail by February 14, 2014.
Between January 15 and January 21, 2014, an issue in Gmail caused some actions, such as deleting, reporting spam, starring, archiving, or moving to a folder, to be incorrectly applied to a different message than the message the user was viewing. As a result, some messages may be unintentionally located in your users’ Trash or Spam, or other folders.
At the end of this message, you will find the list of your users whose messages may have been misfiled in their Trash or Spam folders.
We recommend that you advise these users to check their Trash and Spam folders for any items that they did not intend to delete or mark as spam. Users can restore any misfiled messages by moving them back to their inbox. These messages should be moved from the Trash and Spam folders by February 14, 2014 (messages are permanently deleted 30 days after they’re placed in the Trash).
Also, users may find messages in their inbox that they originally intended for Trash, Spam, or other folders, and will need to move these messages.
About the issue
The cause of the issue was a bug in a software update to Gmail on January 15. Once the issue was reported to the Gmail engineering team, they identified the root cause and issued a fix on January 21, and identified the users whose messages may have been incorrectly placed in Trash or Spam folders. The Gmail engineering team performed an internal review and is implementing a series of measures to address the source of the issue, improve early detection of these types of problems, and help prevent recurrence.
We sincerely apologize for the disruption to your organization. Google is committed to continually and quickly improving our technology and operations to ensure secure access and avoid service disruptions.
If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact us through Google Support.
The Google Apps Team
Following is a template communication for your users:
Google has notified us that you may have been affected by a recent issue in Gmail that caused some actions you took (e.g. deleting a message, marking it as spam, or moving it to a folder) while viewing a message to be inadvertently applied to a different message. The issue occurred between January 15 and January 21.
It affected only actions you took in Gmail for iOS, Gmail in a mobile browser, and Gmail Offline, and not Gmail in a web browser or Gmail for Android.
The issue is now fixed. However, you must take action to re-file these messages in Gmail by February 14, 2014.
What to do now
We recommend that you check your Trash and Spam folders for any items that you didn’t intend to delete or mark as spam. You can restore any misfiled messages by moving them back to your Inbox or intended folder.
IMPORTANT: Please move these messages from the Trash and Spam folders by February 14 (messages are permanently deleted 30 days after they’re placed in the Trash).
Also, you may find messages in your inbox that you originally intended for Trash, Spam or other folders, and will need to move these messages.

Mikrotik Block Open DNS - Firewall
Friday, January 17, 2014, 02:32 PMBlocking DNS requests that are not explicitly allowed is a good practice. It will keep your router's DNS cache from filling up with unexpected queries and it will preserve your bandwidth for your customers instead of public entities.
Assuming your concentrator sits fully between your customers and the internet...
To block all external access to your concentrator DNS relay coming from ether1 add the following to the firewall (adjust ether1 as appropriate to your upstream ether port):
/ip firewall filter
add chain=input in-interface=ether1 protocol=udp dst-port=53 action=drop
add chain=input in-interface=ether1 protocol=tcp dst-port=53 action=drop

Friday, January 10, 2014, 10:34 AMI have explained the importance to all staff of keeping our wireless devices segmented by "student" and "faculty" VLANs. Yet, records now show nearly 100 wireless devices on the faculty segment of the LAN. Either someomr has misconfigured the devices or shared faculty passwords to students.
This forces network administration to apply heavy filtering to both network segments to assure meeting CIPA standards. This also demonstrates a further need for a device such as Barracuda (#BYF610a List Price: $8,999.00) to manage segmented filtering.

Picasso's Still Life under the Lamp
Monday, January 6, 2014, 10:45 AM
With its fabulously vibrant colours – fiery red, citron yellow and zingy apple green – appears in almost every book there is on the artist, so it was with particular pleasure that the British Museum announced on Monday that it had acquired a unique set of proofs showing how he arrived at the final image.
The museum said it had managed to buy two important sets of Picasso linocuts after a successful £500,000 fundraising campaign.

ffmpeg screen recording X11
Tuesday, December 3, 2013, 09:15 AMSo, after much looking around, testing, compiling and upgrading,
I finally found an excellent solution that seems to work better than
any other: ffmpeg. The latest version (2.1) has support for x11grab,
and hence can record directly from the X11 screen. Needless to say,
it produces excellent quality video without frameloss or compression,
and supports virtually any format I could ever need. The best part is
that audio is properly recorded alongside with the video and multiplexed
with the video on the fly for perfect synchronization for my voice-over
needs. Oh, and ffmpeg is multithreaded in case a single core is not
fast enough. Here is an example commandline that works just fine:
ffmpeg -video_size 800x600 -framerate 25 -f x11grab -i :0.0 -f alsa -ac 2 -i hw:0,0 output.mkv
The KDE 4 plasma desktop supports a mouse cursor for magnification in
the vicinity of the mouse cursor, this way I can scale the video down
and the important part is still perfectly readable.
All set now to make my instructional videos :-)
