  1. Yesterday
  2. That is a nice Digium backpack.
  3. I have br0 set up that is used as the network interface for all of my VMs as well as management for the host itself. All of the other VMs I run (mix of CentOS and Debian) can sustain ~50 MB/sec transfer rates over the network, so it's weird. Only one network interface is currently assigned to the bridge interface.
  4. Huh, interesting. I run a similar setup on most of my hypervisors (Slackware though, not CentOS). I'm getting better than 12 MB/sec sustained on a big DB dump, but not gigabit speed. Are you also using a standard Linux layer 2 bridge for what the virtio device is connected to?
  5. A friend of mine brought back Scanaday:
  6. Last week
  7. When I used to call radio stations there was a small burst of static before the DJ answered. Why is/was that the case?
  8. Anyone here have experience with OpenBSD 6.3 as a guest under libvirt? I've spun up a couple instances on my CentOS 7 KVM/libvirt host and I cannot seem to get more than roughly 100Mbps network performance from them. Using the virtio NIC I can sustain transfer rates of roughly 12 MB/sec. I tried switching to the e1000 NIC and performance was worse ( ~8 MB/sec sustained transfer rates with it) even though the virtual NIC indicated it had a 1000baseT full-duplex link. I did not try the rtl8139. Any ideas?
  9. Earlier
  10. So far so good! I have yet to have media suddenly disappear on me in the middle of a call.
  11. For my inaugural post, here's the (semi) interesting results from a low range scan of a 5ESS, minus the unimportant numbers 814-696 ----00XX---- 0008: Fax 0022: Line in CO (Joe apparently) 0023: Ringout 0024: Ringout 0025: like 22 0026: like 22 0037: Some sort of high tone (around 2200 Hz), then reorder if you stay on 0051: 440 Hz tone, sit on line and get reorder. Doesn't seem to react to DP or DTMF, need to try MFs 0074: SIT CBCAD 0075: SIT Call did not go through 0077: Ringout 0080: Reorder 0081: Ringout 0082: Busy 0086: SIT We're sorry, you must first dial a 1 when calling this number. Will you please hang up and try your call again 0087: The call you have made requires a coin deposit. Please hang up, check the instructions on the payphone for the appropriate rate, and dial your call again 0088: Ringout 0089: CBCAD from phone you are using, please read the instruction card and dial again 0090: Reorder 0091: SIT CBCAD 0092: Ringout 0095: SIT We're sorry, your call can not be completed as dialed. Please check the number and try again or call your attendant to help you. Thank you. 0096: SIT We're sorry, due to telephone company facility troubles, your call can not be completed at this time. Will you try your call again later, thank you 0097: SIT We're sorry, all circuits are busy now, will you please try your call again later thank you 0098: We're sorry a CAC is required for the number you have dialed, please dial your call using an access code 0099: Ringout If anyone has any insight into what 0037 or 0051 are, I would certainly enjoy knowing
  12. Excellent to have another "convert" Interestingly, trmg found the likely solution to a problem I've been having for years: whenever I dial certain numbers from one of my Asterisk servers to the old NPA-NXX for Albany, NY cell phones, audio will drop at exactly 15m30s every time. If I say off-hook long enough, Asterisk will eventually terminate the call. This is only when I originate, and only to that NPA-NXX. I'd assumed it was an issue with my SIP provider, and since it affects one person I call every now and then I hadn't looked into it any further. But, trmg was running into the same issue! I'll let him confirm but I believe it was this line of his pf.conf that got it straightened out: match out on egress inet proto udp from $pbx to any nat-to (egress:0) static-port Where $pbx is an alias for the internal IPv4 address of his PBX.
  13. Ooooooh once my office is put back together I'm so contributing to this.
  14. I've been debating on which direction to go with regards to my perimeter firewall on my home network. In talking to systems_glitch in IRC he suggested that I give OpenBSD a go (he probably regrets this as I've been bugging this crap out of him about it). I was a little gun shy about it at first since it would be my first experience with pf, and even OpenBSD itself, but the *NIX nerd in me decided to dive in head first. Although it's only been a couple of days, I am very happy with the setup! I used an old Dell OptiPlex 755 inherited from the ewaste pile at $dayjob. It's got an Intel Core2 Duo E650 2.33 GHz CPU, 8 GB RAM, a 128 GB SSD, gigabit NIC onboard. I happened to have an Intel PRO/1000 quad PCIe NIC in my stash which other than needing a half-height bracket (ordered and en-route from good ol' China) works beautifully. Until the bracket arrives I'll just run it with the cover off. The machine could use a nice does of compressed air, too. Performance wise I am very impressed. I was leary of a box like this being able to handle gigabit throughput between firewall zones, but this box handles it like a champ. CPU usage when doing scp between two hosts on separate zones is maybe 30% peak. I have enabled some additional logging since this testing so I suspect CPU usage will be higher...I plan to test this soon. Right now I'm using the onboard NIC as the "WAN" interface and a single interface on the PRO/1000 card for an inside zone. Eventually I'm going to put all 4 of the PRO/1000 interfaces in a LACP bond and set up multiple zones using VLANs, but that is dependent on another network project of mine that is still in progress. Before this I was using a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter PoE. I can tell you hands down I prefer pf & OpenBSD wayyyy more over EdgeOS/VyOS. If anyone has any tips/tricks on configuring pf security/performance wise, I am all eyes. My config for reference (it's fairly basic right now): And, the obligatory pics!
  15. Hi all, just a quick update I went a bit crazy and I bought the one from item for a big price. at least I have the original to work with. it does work as expected, but also the little IBQ 102. in short the secret seems to use the correct antenna, needs to be metal and not plastic covered. the big proof was I was having same frequency on both hands. sign of good health according to the Item manual. then recently I went ill and my hands does show a big difference with the IBQ I have 70 on left and 30 on right with item I have 160 / 320. experiment on water, using some neuroacusti sound the water does jump from 600 to 700 mhz for some hours. I haven't managed to do other experiments but I would suggest you that these are 'preliminary' tests, I need to be more strict on these tests so to avoid other influences. but being ill I wasn't very into these experiments. I'll keep you updated, I plan to take another antenna for the IBQ 102, since it seems more portable and can save frequencies, it is what I need for outside tests everyday.... it is all about harmonics.... very cool.... for years I was searching something like that to measure something scientifically about subtle energies, water, etc... IBQ 102 with a good metal antenna, not plastic covered, should be less than 100$ if someone wanna try and I disabled the 1st filters between antenna and amplifier, dunno if a good step.... I wonder with all the talking in recent years on the web, about subtle energies, why only a couple of youtube videos about this technology... strange...
  16. New IRC server is officially in place, we changed the CNAME on to point to the new server at Thanks to everyone that helped get this done in a quick and timely fashion!
  17. Just goes straight to reorder for me.
  18. The dialtone on 0028 must be coming from your switch. When I call it, I get dropped to an "if you'd like to make a call...." recording on my switch.
  19. We started a local 2600 meeting around the beginning of the year, we meet in Lexington: Anyone else know of other get-togethers in central VA? Loosely defined as "too far from Charlottesville and Blacksburg"
  20. 2018 JUL 20-22 Anyone else planning on going? I'll be there, may be helping with the NOC crew.
  21. We're working on getting a new BinRev IRC server up, to cut over from the current server hosted by SoldierX. The new server is currently in testing, you can connect, register your nick, and join at: There's no hostname/IP cloak, so if you want that you need to set up a vhost with HostServ. We're running on IPv4 and IPv6, allowing both cleartext and TLS encrypted connections. LetsEncrypt cert, no self-signed nonsense. We are currently allowing tor on the main IPs, that will likely change in the future.

  23. link: That's from a friend's blog, he was on Raptor's preorder list for the project. The machine costs over $7000 but it's a true deskside workstation. It uses IBM's open POWER9 architecture, and supposedly every bit of firmware on the machine is open source. Doesn't look like he's gotten past the "it powers on" point yet
  24. Sure enough, 101-9017-1-405-959-0000 from a switch in Oklahoma City gets you some sort of weird test number from the tandem switch. Other stuff probably isn't far behind.
  25. I just wanted to say, its April 24th 2018. I'm now 38 years old. I was listening to a Philip DeFranco youtube video. He talked about his dude who is popular with young teens Jake Paul. Apparently this you fellow literally installed a roof trampoline on his home. This made me reminisce about the default radio episode where decoders riffs on roof trampolines (2004). Thats why I'm here now. If anyone sees this, hi dudes! I think fondly of the days in the early 2000s with binrev =)
  26. Thanks Oliver! let me know if you find something interesting about this water test...
  27. I didn't come here to be verbally abused by some knowitall to someone whose not as smart as you. Please treat others with respect and not bash people like on your last 'graph. Have a good life.
  28. There's several numbers nearby, like 752-8055, that go to an ANAC.
