The new bacon and cheese sandwich that uses fried chicken in place of bread…

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Tomorrow, I am going to eat this:

It’s from KFC. Who not too long ago reduced their name to a mere three letters in a coy attempt to appear somewhat less devastating to the human digestive system. Apparently they have dispensed with such nonsense.

If I survive, I will report back.

And then I will go on a fast.

Update: So apparently the sandwich is only available in Nebraska and Rhode Island right now.  I guess corn wranglers and mafioso are the target demographic.

Gentoo’s sshd sometimes won’t restart after upgrade…

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

It can be a little alarming to see “!!” in response to attempts to restart sshd.  This has been a problem on Gentoo for some time and seems to occur whenever sshd is upgraded.

To make sshd happy again, killall and restart:

# killall sshd && /etc/init.d/sshd zap start

Don’t forget to chain these commands, otherwise good luck getting back in.
