Apple / Mac question:

my brother is a mac guy... and he has a second computer... an intel / ibm clone.
With a normal 3com home-connect ethernet hub, can he share resources between
the MAC (it's an iMac) and the ibm?
Share the printer connected to the MAC?
Share the filesystems?

I use something like "wingate" to share an internet connection between two intel machines but can you (without a hardware router) share a net connection between the Mac and the PC?

morn'en lj

Oh god did we ever wake up late this morning... the last thing I remember about going to bed was Z messing with the alarm clock (setting it too early!). So we cracked lids at 8:09. Not a good thing on a thursday... Z works thursdays and fridays... and the kids have to be shuffled off to my folks house. I didn't get here (work) till 9:30. go me.

~ freak'en shorts...
~ well, black ftls as well
~ v-neck p-z shirt...
~ actual work ... well, no. not billable work but work none the less!
~ dinner at my folks house...
~ to troll hard core for a solution to a sendmail problem, (still getting "may be forged IP" on my sendmail servers effort to relay from my moms house... she's using a Linksys router and "block wan requests" is disabled!!!)
~ that there is a vast amount of no-big-deal across the USA today as they celebrate their independence day.

"Private property is a crime"... this is a graffiti emblazoned on a wall at this house (in Ottawa) that was taken over by a group of G8 protesters... self described anarchists. The house was (is) privately owned but was not inhabited. The cops finally pepper-sprayed them to hell and back but their message still grates on my nerves. "private property is a crime"??? Nothing is more despicable then a bunch of privileged white kids with half an education and a stick rammed up their collective asses bitching about their own shitty upbringing and blaming society at large.


There is something strangly satisfying about driving a car and noticing your rear-view mirror vibrating to the music.

... birthday time!!

Happy Birthday luker

When the empire was facing it's greatest threats... to stability, and to peace... there came a young man from a desolate, unforgiving planet. He chose to follow the way of the jedi.

As a young jedi he was entitled to certain tools ... some call them toys... his maxima light saber, and his red-hat jedi cape.

And with his toys he will seek to save the empire.

I have known this Jedi for a very long time... I don't actually know how long but I suspect it has been about 6 years? and in that time I have had opportunity to get to know him ... to maybe get to know him very well.

He's a feisty little bugger sometimes but these next few comments I know to be the part of the BIG TRUE;
~ he is a devoted and loving partner, (just ask reens
~ he has a strong sense of social virtue and ethics,
~ he is remarkably smart... that's experience playing well with intelligence,
~ he has the spark of fun and care living in his eyes that tells me he has daddy written on his soul,
~ and he is a friend.

Today is his birthday and I hope with all sincerity that he has a wonderful day and I know in my heart that this will be the most memorable year of his life (he'll be a daddy soon). Cheers buddy! Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday dear Luke-i-am-your-father, Happy Birthday to you!


time to drive... driving = good.

you know theres a great deal of smelly garbage on the streets of Toronto.

that's sad.

homeward bound... I hope you're enjoying your day... :)


I got home from my folks house tonight to a whole box of love'en on my front steps... Mandy Sugar (mandelion) you are all that!! Thank you...
