Armed with Sharpies, erasers and righteous indignation, two apostles of the apostrophe make it their crusade to rid the world of bad signs.

Sounds like a cool job… article link via Habbie on Facebook 🙂

More lenny upgrade

If you get the following error in your linux-vserver guest after upgrading it to lenny:

Feb 21 14:03:22 ftp sshd[18392]: error writing /proc/self/oom_adj: Permission denied
 

Adjust /etc/default/ssh ‘s SSHD_OOM_ADJUST=-17 into SSHD_OOM_ADJUST= then restart ssh to get rid of it.

For people running into this and not knowing how to easily fix:

Feb 20 09:15:19 tequila sshd[18110]: pam_env(sshd:setcred): Unable to open env file: /etc/default/locale: No such file or directory

tequila:~# ls /etc/default/locale
ls: cannot access /etc/default/locale: No such file or directory
tequila:~# update-locale
tequila:~# ls /etc/default/locale

Or just fill it yourself:

tequila:~# cat /etc/default/locale
#  File generated by update-locale

Kenwood radio not playing MP3
Date: February 7th, 2009 by SiD3WiNDR

After I accidentally drained my car battery (oopsie, doh – thank $DEITY for battery chargers) my Kenwood KDC-WV6027 didn’t want to play MP3 anymore – it just saw one big long "track 01" without sound. After some looking around the internet, the solution was found on the cdfreaks forums : just press the reset button on your head unit. Hopefully people with this problem can find it a little easier through here, too..
