The Ratrap has been running with its updated list of "ban me" URLs and now has over 330 IP addresses banned. It is working too as my error log file is far less polluted than before. Now I see actual errors—links I made incorrectly, missing robots.txt files, and requests for CSS images I overlooked. Since the change over traffic has remained about the same. The initial drop in traffic recovered quickly and probably wasn't anything unusual—a normal lull and not part of the changes I made. April is looking to be on track for hitting the 9,000 to 10,000 visits for the month. I am pleased with that number because even of 1% find something useful each month that is still 100 people every month who found what they are looking for.

I added some running statistics from the Blue-Dragon on it's about page. This links the Blue-Dragon, and in particular the networks for Elmwood Park and the Micro-Dragon. While there isn't yet a grand plan for this, it does return the network to a state it has not been since it was setup in the Dragon's Den at Park Place.

I see art, what do you see?

I see art, what do you see?

Star Trek the Motion Picture is my favorite of all the Star Trek movies. Most Star Trek fans I know are not big fans of this movie, preferring the Wrath of Khan or The Voyage Home. While I don't deny these are both good movies, I still think the original motion picture was the best. There are a couple of reasons I feel this way. First, Captain Kirk nether beats anyone up or is involved in any romantic subplots which is kind of his M.O. It is also one of the few times Kirk is shown making mistakes, and his drive to get back command of his ship at all costs is a character flaw that turns him from the überman of the original show to a much more realistic person. Spock has evolved too and much more mysticism has been introduced to his character. While his logical side makes him very cold at the beginning of the movie, he is a lot less blinded by his logical side than in the show.

What I really like about the first motion picture is the machine V'Ger (also spelled Vejur). The machine V'Ger is a life-form that found purpose from a Voyager space probe. I will say the machine V'Ger because V'Ger was what the machine V'Ger called the Voyager spacecraft. It's implied the V'Ger developed consciousness as a result of fulfilling Voyager's mission of collecting data about the universe, and as a result sought to find The Creator. The machine V'Ger is a computer, robot, and spacecraft, and (what I really like) the machine V'Ger isn't evil. Overwhelmingly powerful capable of devastating destruction, but not malevolent. The machine V'Ger is naïve but learns. It doesn't believe people to be true lifeforms and finds they infest what it considers to be a true life-form—the starship USS Enterprise. It is ignorant to the concept that the ship serves the people. At the end of the movie the machine V'Ger comes to understand that humans created the Voyager space probe and therefor are The Creator. There can be many interpretations of what this means, but the fact is that the machine V'Ger has learned. Afterward the Enterprise and Earth are left alone. The machine V'Ger is the most interesting character of the movie mainly because of it's power and mystory.

Perhaps what Trek fans don't like about the movie is the lack of action. The motion picture is much more mystery/suspense with a strong reliance on the science fiction element. If you don't like the V'Ger philosophical story, there isn't much else to the movie. The special effects are late 1970s and there is a lot of time spent journeying though special effects scenes. Most of the characters rather undeveloped and seem dull. However the sound track is amazing. Most people know the main title song, and the Klingon Battle music is also classic. Yet the sound track is probably not enough to carry the movie if you don't like the machine V'Ger.

The finial bias I have is the fact that the Star Trek motion picture is one of the first movies I remember as a child. I loved the long special effect fly-throughs, especially the tour around the Enterprise at the beginning of the movie. While I didn't understand the philosophical side of the story, I nonetheless loved the movie.

Over the years, I think Star Trek:  The Motion Picture caught a lot of flak in the years since it's release, some of it unfair.  It had the misfortune of being released in 1979, which was deep in the midst of the era of the original Star Wars trilogy, so that very fact there tended to take away some of Star Trek's luster.  Another big thing that tended to turn off many other viewers was the incredibly slow pacing of the film.  I admit, I'm not exactly found of the film's pacing either and while I did think the Enterprise visual tour and the fly-through of V'Ger were cool sequences, I do think they may have been drawn out a little too long, but that's just me.  Other than that, I did think it was a good movie.

Two points in the movie I really liked where the fact that Kirk actually didn't fight and/or fuck his way through tough situations and at times was almost diplomatic and thoughtful with his approach; he was actually kind of more like Jean-Luc Picard in this movie, rather than the raging sack of testosterone with the halting speech that we were more familiar with.  I also found Spock's subplot interesting too; here, we see that Spock, despite all his practice in dealing with other species and the inherent difficulties in dealing with his own dual heritage, he still has not fully supressed his human side despite his best efforts.  We see that he failed his final shedding of all emotions as he is emotionally touched by V'Ger; also, his human emotions are plainly evident after he mind-melds with V'Ger (at one point, he actually smiles while recollecting his experiences).

   I've been working on setting up system monitoring on the Blue-Dragon.  I use to have a program that logged the hardware monitor data for the Red-Dragon and would include these stats on the about page.  So I decided to look into doing something like this again, but with the Blue-Dragon.  My graphing turned out to be a lot more work than I had hoped, but I wasn't paying a lot of attention while coding.

Reflections on my Religious Upbringing

I just finished reading an excellent article title An Officer's Deconversion Story: Brandon Frederick. It is a very personal story of someone who was deeply religious from a strongly religious family becoming an atheist. The article has me thinking about my own background, and how completely different my experiences were. I never had the guilt or shame Brandon describes.  In this article I thought I would share some of my own religious background.

I've been actively involved in the atheist community for 3 years now. I wasn't brought up religious, and I wasn't brought up areligious. One of my parents was an open Christian, the other agnostic who just didn't talk about it. I do recall going to several different Christian churches as a kid, and I knew some basics. There was a creator God who knew all, angels who watched over us, a guy named Jesus who was born on Christmas in a manger and died on Easter on a cross, Noah and his ark full of animals, and a book called the Bible. Why people went to church, prayed, or anything else was all a mystery. It made as much sense as why I had to eat food I didn't like: it's good for you. I didn't care enough to bother asking more questions. Church was to be endured for an hour before you could go and do something else just like going to school. Prayer before dinner was just an other ritual like brushing your teeth before bed. But there was no reason attached to any of it.

The first time I asked what it was I did believe was in early middle school when we were covering various world religions in a social studies class. I found the Hindu and Buddhist religions interesting (although in hindsight the descriptions were not terribly accurate) and they seemed no more or less believable than anything I had learned about Christianity. Then there was a new term: atheist—someone who didn't believe in any god or gods. It was like “wait... that's an option?” Presented with this evidence I found I could make a choice. I fancied Buddhism because I liked the idea of reincarnation, and the search for enlightenment I perceived as the philosophical quest for understanding. The Buddha also wasn't a God. I was some kind of agnostic with Buddhist aspirations. As a dyslexic with few friends and a restricted home life there was not much in the way of information. The best I could do was reason my way through the topic, and I did spend a fair bit of time thinking about it. I developed a philosophy I believed incorporated Buddhist ideas. It was vague, but there was definitely no personal God or deities at all. There might have been Spinoza's God or some unconscious universal order but my first thoughts on the topic put me in the atheist category. At some point it became clear I wasn't/couldn't be a Buddhist because I didn't really know anything about Buddhism, and I started using the title of atheist and agnostic. Which title depended on who I was talking to. At the time I understood atheist to mean was someone who was sure there were no gods, and agnostic someone who were pretty sure.

My views continued to be reinforced the more I learned about religions in general. The ritual in church seemed to explain little, and when I asked questions about what actual Christian believes were they just didn't make sense or seem believable. Jesus rose from the dead after dying on the cross. Sure, and Santa Clause delivers presents on Christmas Eve. I wanted more proof than a story, and no one was able to offer it. To be fair, I never encountered a learned Christian during this time.

Moving to the south made me a vocal atheist. While there were probably a lot of open-minded intelligent people in the south, I didn't meet them. What I did meet were zealous bigots. Racism and religiosity were rampant. When ever anyone says “I am not racist but...” I know I am about to hear a racist comment. In the south there was no preface—racist comments just came out. When you would point out the comment was racist, they would defend themselves and explain why they weren't racist. There was no connection for them between making a racist remark and being a racist, and I could never make that clear. Arguing about religion was equally as fruitless, but I did it all the same. After being condemned to hellfire for openly being an atheist, someone told the person damning me to stop talking to me. They replied “but I'm trying to save this boy!” For them you just didn't ask questions. You were told there was a God, and you had to believe or else. They believed—just like they believed they were not being a racist when making racist comments. No one had thought about the subject, what any of it meant, or if it might not be entirely accurate.

After moving out of the south, I again took the title of agnostic. I couldn't prove there were no gods, and I couldn't eliminate the possibility. I generally told people I was an atheist-agnostic-apatheist: I didn't believe in gods, but didn't know for sure, but didn't care. I wasn't terribly vocal about arguing against the existence of god as I had been in the south probably because I wasn't assailed by religion as much. I began to see religion as convenient. Not to me, but to others. It was better that some people believe because they would not be a good person without that belief—they needed the rules to keep them in line. Flawed as this philosophy was I still very much had an “us and them” mentality, but it was at least a live and let live policy.

Once the Internet came into widespread use I was able to read more about religion and religious philosophy. I started to know more Christians and understand their thought process better. I found what they did believe varied. Most never looked deeply into their religion's origins or read much about what other religions believed. Almost none had considered or practiced an other religion outside of Christianity. My reading found topics such as creationism, faith healing and the refusal of medical treatment, anti-contraception, and anti-stem cell research. People were not just blindly adhering to their faith, they were making decisions that were effecting people's lives. The idea that religion wasn't always individual belief started to change my mind about keeping quite on the topic. Initially I only read, and talked about the topic in coffee shops. Now I try to participate more.

I've learned a good deal from the atheist community, especially from former believers. Having never been seriously religious I didn't have a difficult deconversion process (if there was one at all). I've also never kept my atheism a secret. The idea there are closet atheists was new to me. So learning about the hardships of deconversion, and the difficulties faced by those who have not come out about their change in religious belief has been very interesting.

This is s struggle I am familiar with as well.  While baptized and less than half-heartedly raised as a Lutheran, I never felt completely comfortable attending any church services growing up; I always felt like something wasn't quite right, like I didn't belong there.  At this current moment in time, I have actually attended some church services at St. Paul Lutheran church in Beloit on occasion, but only for two reasons:  one, because Jenna does consider herself a believer and wants to attend church; I go with pretty much to appease her as she nags constantly about it.  Two:  the church I mentioned is one that members of my family attended in the past/still attend, and going to services gives me an opportunity to see them and visit with them.  Despite this however, I don't consider myself a practicing Christian, nor do I have any particular interest in becoming one, mainly for a lot of the same reasons you outlined in this article.  I generally tend to fall into the same Atheist/agnostic/apatheist catagory you were once in.

There are some belief systems I do have some interest in, namely Hinduism and Zen Buddhism.  My interest in Hinduism stems from how many Hindu texts tend to tie in some of their stated beliefs with actual scientifically documented workings in the universe and physical world, and have actually been doing this since LONG before Christianity even existed.  From what I've been able to read up on Zen Buddhism so far is that it is more of a contemplative and introspective belief system with particular emphasis on meditation and mental clarity.  One thing I would like to do sometime is to visit the Hindu and Buddhist temples in and around the Madison area as a learning experience for other cultures and beliefs aside from "Yay Jesus!"

Another belief system that I have particularly become interested in lately is the indigenous religion of Japan:  Shinto.  In reading up on Shinto, I was fascinated to learn that Shinto isn't so much an actual religion as it is a conglomeration of ancient rituals and traditions which also predates Christianity be several centuries, if not millenia.  While some aspects of Shinto do express beliefs in deities, spirits, and higher beings, a huge core of Shinto beliefs and traditions centers around a deep reverence for the natural world, something I can definitely jive with.  There is an actual Shinto shrine here in Wisconsin; it is called the Sacred Cedar Shrine, and it is located in River Falls, I believe which is within 50 miles or so of the Twin Cities area.  It is located in an area once heavily forested with White Cedar trees, which over time was gradually deforested and repurposed as farmland due to stupid human intervention.  The shrine is located at a small grove of White Cedars that was spared reclamation due to the presence of an underground spring and also due to the surrounding land being to rocky for tilling.  I very much want to visit this shrine and making a visit there is on my to-do list.

Generally though, I don't subscribe to any particular belief system and I don't particularly care about whether some higher entity is judging me for my life actions.  I basically live my life according to what I feel is right and proper, and I don't take too kindly to those who would judge me for it.  I generally consider myself to be a good person who tries to be respectful of others; but, i don't particularly believe or worry that there's a mysterious boogeyman in the sky who will cast me into hellfire and brimstone if I don't kowtow and kiss His/Her/Its ass.

Apache 2.4 and PHP 5.5 Test Server, and Another Monitor

The Console, April 2014

The Console, April 2014

Yesterday I tried getting Apache 2.4 and PHP 5.5 using the package manager. I didn't get it to work. Today I decided to compile it from source like I always have. That did work. I copied most of my old configuration file to the new setup and have only run into a couple of places that need to be changed. There are still some issues I need to work out with the older Perl script sites, but a port on the main server should be doable soon.

I have again been watching my server logs. I started running a duel monitor setup in April of 2005 and had used one monitor to display all my server stats. As I began to make more and more use of my screen real estate and became less interested in watching logs, I stopped doing this. Now that I'm far more involved with getting the website back to being robust I've again started watching log file. The Blue-Dragon (my current console) has four monitors, although I usually only had 3 running at a time. With 5440x1600 pixels of screen space you would think I had room for everything. But gone are the days when applications didn't waste pixels, and I have become very use to having 3 screens to work on. So when I wanted to display my log files, there was the question of where to put them.

The 4th monitor on the Blue-Dragon was a CRT, but it wasn't in a great location. Xiphos had given me an old LCD he wasn't using, and for awhile I used it for a work computer. It has been sitting idle. I decided I would fly the monitor and place it above one of my secondary screens. Initially I was going to do this using a shelve I planned to put behind the secondary monitor. But as I was setting this up I changed my mind. The new LCD to add into the collection had a large base that made it difficult to put the monitor where I wanted it. After removing the base to see if I couldn't construct something else, I found mounting screws on the back of the LCD. I decided to see if I couldn't mount the monitor to a wood bracket. It turned out to work better than I had expected. I was able to mount a 2x4” board to the back of the monitor, and screwed that to a second 2x4” board that connected to a shelve.

The results are pictured, and I am pleased with them. While low resolution, it can hold all my logs so they are at an easy glance, and don't interfere with my work space.

Fighting with Apache

Biscuit

Biscuit

I started with a lot of success today. To being, I mirrored several of the sites from DrQue.net with my home setup. This was done using the sub domains and sub-sub domains. For example, kingsquest.home.drque.net routes to the Blue-Dragon and a virtual host for the King's Quest site. This allows me a live sandbox to test with. I setup the mirrors with a password (hence why they are not linked) mainly to keep search engines from digging around. These are mirror sites, and I don't want the mirror ending up in an index over the actual site.

Since I could not get Apache 2.4 running on the Micro-Dragon I decided to look at getting the Ubuntu package running. Ubuntu currently has support for Apache 2.2, but not 2.4. Not a huge problem, but I know my config file has issues in 2.4 and I kind of wanted to have 2.4 running to work these issues out. There is a repository for Apache 2.4, and I got it to install. However, it did not work with PHP. Here I ran into a problem with the repo. There is a repository that has both Apache 2.4 and PHP 5.5. However they are dependency problems inside the repo I can't get around. The repo page noted that the build from the previous night failed for AMD, and maybe that is the problem. So no luck with Apache 2.4.

I've been eating more biscuits and have been working on a simple biscuit recipe.  This set has a little cornmeal, and with some 100% strawberry jam is pretty tasty.

Which version of Ubuntu are you using for this project, the latest or one of the older versions?  Not sure what you opinion is of the more recent versions of Ubuntu, but I am definitely NOT a fan of what they've done with the GNOME interface recently; looks like they're trying to copy Windows 8 and it's whole "Metro" GUI scheme or whatever the hell they call it.  I'm curious how Micro-Dragon would run under Linux Mint, or perhaps even Arch Linux?  Not sure if Arch Linux has Apache 2.4 support like what you're looking for, but I would think Mint might, since it's based off Ubuntu, but without the shitty GUI.

I run Ubuntu server 12.04 (the current long-term stable release) on the Micro-Dragon.  The server has no GUI as it doesn't need one.  On my other machines I run Linux Mint, and mainly for the reason you stated: Unity is ugly, hard to use, and a step backward.

Apache 2.4 will come as a Ubuntu package, but I didn't want to wait.

Ahhh, how silly of me; I had forgotten there was a strictly server version of Ubuntu.  The goodness of Ubuntu, but without the Microsuck wannabe-GUI.  Mint is excellent; I would really like to play around with it some more, probably after the semester's over at school when I'll actually have some free time again!  I think Mint is one of Nick French's favorite Linux distros as well; we almost always were playing around with Mint whenever we actually were able to have meetings during our repeated attempts to establish a functioning Linux Club at U-Rock.

Battlantis

Last Snow

Last Snow

Although it has been 10 years since I started and I still haven't finished, I've decided to release the Battlantis game site. This was game was one of the first arcade games I was really around when I was younger. While I never played myself (I never had money for such things) I use to watch others play and once even saw someone beat the game. There was a thrill to see a new level that no one else had been to before. One of the things I liked most about the game was the music, and after finding MAME back in the late 1990s I was very pleased to be able to listen to music from the game.

I have had some more time to analyze my log files. I have several virtual hosts and each has it's own log file, and now all have been setup for analysis. The log system has a comparison chart for all sites. Turns out the root of DrQue.net gets about 50% more traffic than the King's Quest site. The root of the site gets the most traffic (the photoblog), followed by the image gallery, and then by my Polynomial Regression class, and Gauss-Newton class. I had not separated the last two projects from the main site until recently. There was a high amount of traffic to a profile editing page (now non-existent with the new site layout) that must have been a target by bots.

What this actually means I can't be sure. It is likely that the King's Quest site is still the single most popular page. But the photoblog, Polynomial Regression class, and Gauss-Newton class are also fairly popular. Now that the bots are being filtered, and the logs are split up I will be able to get a more definitive answer. In a couple of months I should know for sure the traffic delineation between the sites.

My bot management seems to be working. The error log has had only a few entries over the past 12 hours, mainly for missing “favicon.ico” and other such things. Before banning known malicious requests most of the error log entries were messages for the bots attempts. Currently 90 IP addresses have been blocked by the Ratrap, and a total of 140 have ventured into the trap.

Pictures is probably the last snow of the season. I will miss you winter.

Yes!!!  I fondly remember playing this game, even back in the olden days at that loathesome shit-hole they called Marshall Middle School!  This is definitely one of my most-played games in my MAME collection.  I was perusing through your Battlantis page with a smile in my face and fond memories playing in my head.  I'm trying to remember all the names we came up with for the bosses and enemies in that game.  The only I can remember offhand is the Stage 4 boss, the one that we dubbed "Noriega!"

If I remember correctly, the boss of stage three was the Toilet Monster who was upset after being awoken from his latrine.  And the stage 7 boss we named after the vice principle as it was a giant frog.

Ahhh, yes!  The Toilet Monster!  Yeah, now I remember that boss's name.  Every time someone playing Battlantis at school got to him, everyone was making comments about how badly he had to shit because he was shaking so much from holding it in (when the shaking was actually the indicator of battle damage dealt him).  I remember Ben Miller always (loudly) going on about that during those battles, and him finally shouting out "He farts!!" when the boss finally explodes.  Then you had Noriega hurling his explosive drug pills at you.  And yes, I also do remember Fish the Frog, after Mr. Fish!  Hahahaha!!!  Remember how we always used to give him lines of dialogue in his Kermit-voice whenever he appeared?  "Now Andrew, you've been a very bad boy.  You will report to detention or I will lash you with my giant tongue.  That will teach you to stick peas to the cafeteria ceiling!"  Now that I also think of it, didn't we name one of the bosses after Mr. Lundgren, because it looked like he was jerking off as he moved around the screen?

Getting the Ratrap Back to Business

Push the Button Machine

Push the Button Machine

   Around July of 2006 I wrote a script called the Ratrap.  It's honeypot designed to attract malicious bots and ban them from my server.  The Ratrap is a script that works by looking like a directory.  It generates random pages full of text, links, e-mail addresses and images.  The links all link to itself, and everything is random.  Once a spider goes into the Ratrap, it could stay there indefinitely.  However, after a said number of requests, the script uses iptables to deny the requesting IP address from accessing the server any further.  This can blacklist bad bots.
   At some point the Ratrap stopped working on my server.  But with all the malicious traffic I've been seeing on the site I thought it was a good time to get it working again.  It looks like what broke was SQLite.  I used this in the script to keep track of traffic in the Ratrap.  I ported my implementation so that it used the PDO SQLite interface and things are again functional. 
   Now that I have the Ratrap working again, it was time to have it assist in blocking some of the traffic from the inept bot I wrote about yesterday.  There are two pages the bots love: one from my King's Quest walkthrough, and the other from an old guestbook.  Now both of these request will instantly ban the requesting IP address.  In just a few hours over a dozen IP addresses have been banned, and I am seeing a lot less "File does not exist" in my error logs.
   This picture of a man plugging away at a slot machine in Las Vegas reminds me of the inept bots trying to SPAM my site.  Without thinking the man pushes buttons thinking he is going to somehow beat the machine, but the odds are overwhelmingly in the machine's favor.  He could win, but he probably won't.

Inept SPAM bots.

Rocket Engine of a Titan Missile

Rocket Engine of a Titan Missile

   Since updating the King's Quest site, my traffic has dropped significantly.  Traffic went from around 200 visits a day to 30.  It may be I messed up the site's rank by retooling it, but I have an other hypothesis.  I believe this is due to a SPAM bot that is now finding a non-existent page.  Because I can't spell I had named a page incorrectly.  For whatever reason this page became a favorite of some kind of bot that hits it hundreds of times a day.  I renamed the page when I corrected the spelling error, and now the page has a redirect.  The bot seems to have trouble with the redirect and request a second URL that doesn't exist at all.  The hits come from all kinds of locations, and most are listed on Honey Pot pages as bots.  Time will tell if my traffic returns, or if I was misled into thinking my site received more traffic that I thought.  Still, 30 visits a day is 900 visits a month, and that (to me) is significant for an 11 year old game site.
   Just as strange as the as the actions is the fact this bot has never accomplished anything.  Despite having hundreds of requests a day made from hundreds of different locations the post attempt has never posted a single thing.  I can't be sure what all it attempts to post, but the page they all target has no postings at all.  There is never a request for the Captcha, so there is clearly never an attempt to solve it.  While the bots intent is probably malicious it is also inept.
   My new comment system should cut down on the bot traffic.  The new comment system does not have a form included on the page, and that form isn't loaded until the requested by Javascript.  Bots searching for forms to fill in have found my website a number of times.  Only once have they been ever successful.  This new comment system should complicate things enough so the bots don't bother me.  We shall see.

The King's Quest series was a lot of fun to play.  To this day I still enjoy those old "Quest" game series from Sierra On-Line.  Such classics!  I also particularly enjoyed the Space Quest series, the Leisure Suit Larry series, and let's not forget one of your old fave's Hero's Quest!  (which after legal bullshit, they had to start calling "Quest for Glory.")  I miss Sierra, they really made some awesome games, but sadly went defunct around 2008, I believe.  Their last release before going under is one of my favorite games; it's called "World in Conflict," and it's a real-time strategy game set in an alternate 1989, where the Soviet Union, instead of somewhat quietly declining and dying off as they did in our history, decides on a course of war to revitalize themselves.  After launching an attack on NATO forces in West Berlin and Europe, they launch a surprise invasion of the US West Coast!  It's essentially "Red Dawn:  The Game!"
