ex machina

in case you haven't heard - rob flickenger of nocat and "building communiy wireless networks" fame was recently hospitalized for serious injuries inflicted from a fall from a roof while installing an antenna. i really, truly wish rob a speedy recovery.

speaking of rob, i ran across sputnik recently and wondered if they were using nocat as a foundation. well, it turns out - they are and it sounds like they've made some nice enhancements:

"Yep, our new company, Sputnik, has created an all-in-one Smart AP (uses the HostAP drivers for Linux), router, dynamic firewall (iptables-based) with bandwidth shaping, and a modified NoCatAuth captive portal that authenticates with our backend authentication, settlement and billing systems. It doesn't currently authenticate against RADIUS, Active Directory, or NDS just yet, these are some additional features that we're building into the backend as we speak."

"Oh, and by the way, all of the gateway code is open source, including the changes and improvements we made to NoCatAuth (well _duh_, it's GPL'd code)."

nice sounding stuff. dave sifry and other linuxcare co-founders are behind the recently launched company.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
