qmHandle

qmHandle is a pretty nifty queue manager.

qmHandle -l lists both local and remote queues

qmHandle -D kills the queue -- how handy. Make sure to restart qmail-send if you do this tho -- if you tell qmHandle how to look up qmail-send's ip, then it'll kill it for you and if you're running qmail under daemontools, it'll restart itself.

NFS thru a Firewall

RPC port dancing blues got you down?

The trick is the following:

mount -o public server:/directory /mount/point

If the server understands the 'public' keyword, RPC is avoided and all that's needed is a tcp connection on port 2049 to the server. Nifty huh?

A couple of things: First off, you have to edit /etc/dfs/dfstab and add the -o public to your share command. Then you have to unshare / share to activate

Julie London

11/10/02 | by david2 [mail] | Categories: General
I'm listening to her stuff right now -- she's the coolest.

Here's a blurb I snarfed on her:


Julie London emerged as the consummate cocktail siren. Movie star, club performer, recording artist, and occasional television personality, she was also the perfect physical type for conveying aerodynamic glamour in the new age of mass-produced Frididaires and televisions. She was a blend of Dionysian flesh and Detroit steel, streamlined car and cocktail shaker combined. Her cool, sleek supple contours, cobalt blue eyes, and high tech vocals satisfied America's fascination for what Marshall McLuhan called "the assembly line goddess."

...Julie London's music also incited a fresh repertoire of amorous sexual responses, making romance more a matter of environment than emotion. Many of her songs are less about passion than about its accoutrements: the jewels, the satin sheets, the colognes, the after-office dinners, and, best of all, the cocktail interlude when many pecuniary deals are forged. For the cover of her 1961 album, Whatever Julie Wants, Julie had to have special armed security men stand guard as she posed beside almost $750,000 worth of furs, jewels, and piles of paper money...(excerpts from "The Cocktail: The influence of spirits on the American psyche" by Joseph Lanza.)

Adding a Qmail Server

11/04/02 | by david2 [mail] | Categories: Geek
In order to add a server to an existing qmail installation -- do the following:

1) add the appropriate line into the /var/qmail/users/assign file
2) run qmail-newu to build the cdb file
3) update /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts (or maybe morercpthosts)
4) update /var/qmail/control/virtualdomains

Of course, your vpopmail UID and GID 's must be the same in both systems
