AT&T DSL with IPv6

I started my IPv6 journey via Hurricane Electric's service.  It was an amazing journey they delegated me a /64 and /48 and provided instructions to get it setup on every operating system.  Then the Chicago router filled and I didn't want to hop off my ISP's network to get to the tunnel so I started prodding my ISPs. 

VPS.NET IPv6 Name Server

I became interested in VPS.NET when they sponsored DrupalCon Chicago last March.  It was nice to know they were adding a node so geographically close to me, and fun to watch how many exhibits they could get the VPS.NET robot into. I have had mine on my desk(unless the office cats knock it off) as a reminder to check back for deals and remind me if the need arose. 


I've started writing a bot that attaches to my Mythbackend. I'm calling it mythbot. It allows me to check on my recording status through commands like tuners, upcoming, jobs, info. It's written in php and uses xmpphp. XMPPHP does have performance problems. It needs a one liner to fix performance problems.
Update: The code is now hosted on GitHub at

Power went out in the neighborhood and I'm finally getting to use my generator for the first time this year.  Its great seeing an investment put to use.

Switch to Drupal

I have decided to switch my website to use drupal.  I decided this so that I could use a very stable and well supported CMS to maintain my web site.  Also I am starting to develop some drupal modules and this gives me a place to production test some of them.
