I couldn’t log in, but then I checked the log in the app. It needs access to xmlrpc.php.
And here’s a cat picture. It’s cold today, so they all piled up in the bed.
You get this error every so often with pianobar.

So, I was playing around with cPanel’s new SSL cert thing at WHM -> Home -> SSL/TLS -> Manage Auto SSL in v58
Want the details?
I don’t have time to be fooling with SSL certs. Or cPanel. I know I need to figure this out. But in the MEANTIME…
The domain anna.org is being squatted on. I did a whois, found the contact info, and asked about it. Here’s what happened.
So, it turned out my workaround of putting SSH on the non-SSL IMAP port 143 wasn’t a great idea and I figured out something much more simple.
Of course, a cPanel update broke that workaround, so rather than futz with IMAP settings again, I disabled POP3. That freed up 995 and 110. So, I put SSH on 995 and cPanel doesn’t freak out with that.
Much easier, no need to muck with config files other than sshd_config, and it works just fine at the hospital with sshuttle.
So, I’m piddling around, cleaning up old kernels on my crappy Ubuntu server. I thought I’d make a note for future reference, I always have to Google whenever it occurs to me to do this.
Find the running kernel (so I know what not to delete):
root@schoolserver:~# uname -r 3.19.0-47-generic
Here’s what I’ve got installed:
root@schoolserver:~# dpkg --list | grep linux-image | grep -v module ii linux-image-3.19.0-43-generic 3.19.0-43.49~14.04.1 i386 Linux kernel image for version 3.19.0 on 32 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-3.19.0-47-generic 3.19.0-47.53~14.04.1 i386 Linux kernel image for version 3.19.0 on 32 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-generic-lts-vivid 22.214.171.124.32 i386 Generic Linux kernel image
Lemme remove the old, unused one:
root@schoolserver:~# apt-get purge linux-image-3.19.0-43-generic Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: linux-headers-3.19.0-42 linux-headers-3.19.0-42-generic Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. The following packages will be REMOVED: linux-image-3.19.0-43-generic* linux-image-extra-3.19.0-43-generic* 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded. After this operation, 155 MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
There’s no power button on this weird machine, it boots when you plug it in. My workaround for powering it off is that I’ve set the grub timeout to 3 minutes. Reboot, then unplug it at the grub menu.
Way back in 2010, I set up Southside XO Techs on Blogspot (or Blogger or whatever Google’s Blogging service is called now). That’s where I made notes on XO and XS stuff.
Anyway, now that I’ve got this WordPress thing, I went ahead and migrated the content from there. That’s why you’re seeing posts in the archive here starting from 2010 even though I set this up for work practice in March of 2015.
I guess I’ll leave that blog up over there, though I haven’t posted to it in years. Exporting and importing the xml file with all the posts was really easy. Though it kept the image links the same, pointed at Blogspot, so I had to manually fix the images to be hosted here.
I’ve been meaning to move this WordPress installation to its own cPanel account and subdomain. While I was at it, I updated WordPress and switched to the 2016 theme.
This is still a crappy site with barely any content, cause I basically just use it for practice for work, but hopefully it’s more secure now. Oh, and I got a free SSL cert from our favorite CA – Startcom.
