A brand new shiny yum repository!

Yes, that’s right, I have decided to start hosting a yum repository. I decided this because some packages just need to be packaged and won’t make it into big repos in some cases.

Here’s how to get YOUR rpm package into MY yum repo:

  1. If your package is compiled, compile it for as many architectures and distributions as possible.
  2. Send a link to all your compiled RPMs, and source code to spamtrap AT oks DOT verymad DOT net
  3. I’ll email you back if your package was accepted.

Here’s a link to the .repo file you will need to use the repository:

simply put that file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ as oks-yum.repo and you’re good to go!

New Star Trek movie

Don’t know if any of you saw this movie but it was the best Sci-Fi film yet. It contained a lot of action, character development, and of course humour. I like the first scene on the USS Enterprise when Kirk and McCoy walk out of the shuttle and they see Spock on the other end of the hall, and McCoy comments:

                  “Oh look, it’s the pointy-eared bastard.”

This film was awesome, even Star Trek fans would like it. It made over 350 million world gross. Terminator Salvation has failed with no reputation to speak of. I wonder what Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will turn up. Anywho Star Trek is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carbon Counting

If you’re curious about how much Carbon Dioxide is in our atmosphere RIGHT THIS SECOND, then there is now an online counter that was unveiled in New York today. It will provide you with a live counter of the approximate metric tons of CO2 in the atmosphere right now.

The link is:

The website wasn’t unveiled just today, but in New York, everyone gathered around a billboard that will update itself.

Hmmm… I’m trying it out and it doesn’t seem to be working. When I try to load a post, it refuses to load. I just have to try publishing a new post.

16:30 – ScribeFire can now post (I sent a test post), but can’t edit. Looks like Mr. VanBuren will have to work this out.
