    Today I was given the opportunity to speak to a roomful of about a hundred 8th through 12th graders that were interested in learning more about IT career possibilities, and get some hands-on experience with a real-world implementation of various technologies in a lab setting at the Kirkwood High Tech Guys Day.

  • Chrome's Unsafe Ports

    So apparently Chrome maintains a list of "unsafe" ports (or maybe a list of safe ones). I did not know this... and got a minor headache from it.

    I was trying to setup a new printer remotely on one of my workstations that currently is configured to allow access to CUPS only locally on port 631 (default setup). That's easy enough, I'll just use SSH's port forwarding to allow my connection to appear local to cups:
