  • Lofland bLOG » Hurricane Katrina
    we came back to a pile of sticks insurance would replace all of our stuff and build a new house for us What everyone who grows up in the area knows is that evacuation in the face of a hurricane is a very personal thing Many people who have spent decades there get hardened to them and don t evacuate They are always interviewing them on television I d rather die in my house than run from a storm I m sure their sentiments are different on the way up to a helicopter in a basket Seriously though in the past there was an evacuation in Louisiana where the evacuees were trapped on the highway by rising waters and then killed by poisonous snakes while they stood on top of their cars Due to that incident evacuations were never again made mandatory in Louisiana Instead the Police drive down the street telling everyone to leave from their bullhorns In true Louisiana style though everyone listens to this and makes their own decision Some flee some stay and those who stay often suffer the consequences of thumbing their nose at nature Hurricanes aren t like earthquakes or tornadoes They used to be but with modern technology we know they are coming for days We really can run from them What is really sad is that while it is true that many of those who did not evacuate suffer the fate they brought on themselves most of the ones we see on the news now didn t stay by choice Especially in New Orleans Large cities always have large segments of poor In a large city cars are not a necessity and can even be a liability having to find parking at home and at work for it and keeping it safe While a poor person in a small community may be able to have an old junk car in a big city it is a luxury that just isn t possible Most of the people left in New Orleans are very poor people who had no personal transportation It is a great shame that we made no formal effort to evacuate them New Orleans is a death trap in such storms and everyone knows it There has always been the fear that some day a hurricane would come right into Lake Pontchartrain and displace the entire lake into New Orleans leaving the city under fifteen feet of water Actually New Orleans got off easy this time The levee broke after the storm surge was mostly over The Lake wasn t actually pushed into the city but rather the levees just broke It could have been worse Unfortunately the contempt that comes with familiarity is part of the nature of hurricanes They always come Some people run and some stay The damage is rarely catastrophic in certain areas and so we get used to them Yes they tell us on the news that this one is really big and that it may

  • Lofland bLOG » Running Scared
    bLOG Running Scared Filed under Personal on Tuesday November 23rd 2004 9 42pm by Christen I have recently witnessed yet another family who spent most of their years of existence running from evil suddenly caught by it They avoided all modern media nearly all movies all forms of rock music youth groups in churches and just about anything else that could possibly be considered anything short of perfect This running from evil was part of what they ate what they wore their education and everything Then all in one day they discover that despite and maybe even because of their constant running from anything with the slightest hint of anything evil evil found them In fact evil had caught their familiy in ways that few families are caught Things that the most liberal soul outraged Seems I heard someone say recently something to the effect of You can t run from it it will hunt you down and catch you like a dog I know the word he used was sorrow but it seemed to really be a good synonym for evil in both that scenario and the ones I speak of now If you haven t seen The Village do If you don t get it either A You are in a BAD way or B You are lucky enough to have not experienced what I m talking about I really start to wonder if God ever intended for us to run from evil in the way that these people have We don t all hide in a village but many hide behind high standards that keep them from living in our world I m not advocating that we all start indulging in pornography eating pepperoni pizza three meals a day listen to music full of foul language or

  • Lofland bLOG » Patching SUN: (single patch)
    by Christen patchadd p will list the installed patches from console patchadd PATCHNAME this is done in multi user mode If it asks you go to single user mode The patch may actually tell you that it is better to go to single user mode To drop to single user mode on SUN init s SUN requires the root password when you go to single user mode You can t backdoor SUN machines from single user mode If you don t know the root password you have to boot from CD and mount the root file system and change the root password that way kind of like Windows NT Again now in single user mode the command is the same patchadd PATCHNAME to get out of single user mode exit It will ask you what runlevel to go to and you want 3 NOTE This is Solaris specific There is a huge difference between patchadd and pkgadd as pertaining to the d option Short story is you should NEVER use the d option with patchadd Unlike pkgadd where the d specifies the device location for the package the d in patchadd tells it not to backup the files being patched
