POC: OpenVPN + Internet + MS Exchange Active Directory + Windows/Linux Mobile Client

January 18, 2008 |

I have this idea, ok? What I noticed while migrating some of the users from the Admissions Department at the University for which I work, was that it was tough to explain to them sufficiently that:

  • Their passwords are going to have to change at some point, due to security policy.
  • When they change it on their desktop, it’s not automatically done on their laptop.
  • After changing the desktop password, they need to connect the laptop to the network and then login with that new password for it to be cached.

Now, it’s easy to write out, and easy for a tech to understand the scenario – but it’s not that easy for a 45yr old Hispanic guy who hates his laptop anyway to grasp. But what if they didn’t have to grasp anything? What if no matter where you were, the login process and the features available were as seamless in Wisconsin as if you were sitting at your desk in Texas?

How To: Setup a UT3 Internet Server

January 13, 2008 | | 42 Comments

Update 2: It has come to my attention, while trying to play UT3 myself after many years, that the GameSpy aspects of the game no longer function due to the incompetence of IGN and the concept of DRM’d games.

This means no logging into the GameSpy account for you or your server, so no online authentication, leaving only offline play.

Update 1: I have updated the links that were broken, and some formatting & informational changes.

Surprisingly there are no complete blog postings or forum topics that tell you how to set up a UT3 Internet Server from start to finish…so here we go (this guide¬†will primarily focus on a Windows install, but I will include as much info as I can for Linux):

Project: tsnXchat

March 1, 2006 | | 2 Comments

After using a flooble chatterbox from www.flooble.com, and trying to (unsuccessfully) hack it to get rid of the ads at the bottom, I have resolved to putting my newly developed AJAX skills to the test, to create an open-source version, with no ads. I’ll explain how you can make one too in this entry.
