Keeping Your License Key Safe

When you buy a new computer, unless it has a free operating system such as Linux, there is usually a Windows license key sticker attached. For most desktop computers, the sticker is located on the outside of the case. However on laptops, the sticker is usually on the bottom. This can cause a problem if the computer is used as a "lap top" computer. The friction on the bottom of the laptop can rub off the information on the license key sticker.

Asterisk Fun with Linux Kernel Update

I love open source software. There are sometimes though when it will drive me crazy.

One of those crazy days was today! While doing what seemed to be an innocent aptitude update on an Ubuntu server running Asterisk, upon reboot I realized that the linux kernel was updated (which usually isn't too big of a deal). However when Asterisk started, I noticed Dahdi was not loading, and that's bad! The Asterisk server can run without it but there are some parts that break without Dahdi, such as MeetMe conferences, hardware TDM cards, etc.
