20 June 2017, 18:49 UTCSo, in 2017, Grub2 still can't boot md raid 1.2 with on lvm top of it?

In order to simplify a new build, I thought I would try to see if Grub would boot to layered md raid with lvm.
Seems no, I still need a /boot if going with metadata version 1.2.
I can't even see it in grub rescue with the module loaded.


6 June 2017, 20:14 UTCWhere does that module live in the Python install?

inspect module to the rescue:

import inspect
import datetime

for name, data in inspect.getmembers(datetime):
    print name, data

Wait for output...
__doc__ Fast implementation of the datetime type.
__file__ /usr/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/
__name__ datetime
__package__ None
date <type ''>
datetime <type 'datetime.datetime'>
datetime_CAPI <capsule object "datetime.datetime_CAPI" at 0x7f39d93a7960>
time <type 'datetime.time'>
timedelta <type 'datetime.timedelta'>
tzinfo <type 'datetime.tzinfo'>

Crud. Not exactly helpful.
But source is available :-)

After hammering at the WSUS server (as it seemed to be server side from all the errors I found)...
Turns out to be something on the client side.
Give this batch - (how quaint) - a shot:


It might be good to disable some crapware as well:
Good article on clean boot here from Logitech:


30 May 2017, 13:34 UTCGoogle, where is your head? Not Secure. Is that the best wording you could come up with?

So you want to tell users when they are on a non-encrypted connection to a website.
Not so sure on the wording. Overdoing the https everywhere much?


30 May 2017, 4:48 UTCO.K. Google, where are you getting your TZ data?

I am with you on point one. Canada is totally like... a different country :-)
Not so sure on the change in time zone though...

19 April 2017, 14:48 UTCSegfault error codes:

So I don't have to look in the comments of fault.c anymore:

   * Page fault error code bits:
   *   bit 0 ==    0: no page found       1: protection fault
   *   bit 1 ==    0: read access         1: write access
   *   bit 2 ==    0: kernel-mode access  1: user-mode access
   *   bit 3 ==                           1: use of reserved bit detected
   *   bit 4 ==                           1: fault was an instruction fetch

P.S. Thanks, your crawlers are allowing me to learn new things.

O.K. update time. Looks like you won round 1.

I think it is cheating to use 16 bots at a time on one website.
And you should not be so predictable - every 6 hours seems to be your crawler interval.
