Citylink's official Debian mirror (ftp.nz.debian.org) is apparently
again broken (not even listening on port 80 from where I'm sitting).
Would anyone be seriously interested in donating rack space, national
transit, or hardware to the cause of another official Debian mirror for
Having reliable and cheap access to free software projects like Debian
is critically important, and having a second official mirror seems like
a no-brainer to me.
I am very happy to donate my time to admin and monitor any equipment
provided for this, and to liase with the Debian project as required.
Perhaps Citylink could give us some insight in to the traffic levels
their existing mirrors see?
Does anyone here look after, or know who looks after, the 026 400 1283
modem interface to spark paging ?
It's currently answering calls, but not giving a modem handshake.
(Please don't respond with messages about paging being end-of-life'd,
the fire service is paying for it to kept alive on life-support.)
We have a 42U rack in Riccarton exchange available for free. It's in
very good condition.
Size is H 2m x W 0.6m x D 1.01m, black colour. Mesh doors, side panels
and some shelves. Pick up only from the exchange so you need PTN
If anyone is interested please contact me off list.

Talking to a firie contact, they're under the impression that the

I was just wondering if it’s possible to set an egress rule on a mikrotik to strip any vlan tag without specifying the VLAN, and if so, what this configuration would look like? (i.e – vlan=any)
It seems that you can do this for specific VLANS but if the inbound VLAN tag is random there doesn’t seem to be any ready examples on how to do this.
Is it even possible? Or am I just trying to do things incorrectly?
We are proud to announce the second Christchurch Hacker Conference (CHCon), to be held at the UCSA Events Centre, 90 Ilam Rd, Riccarton, on Friday 27 and Saturday 28th October, 2017. That’s right, we’re aiming for a two day conference - with an additional training day before the main event. The call for presenters, trainers, and sponsors is open. We will open registration for general attendees in the coming weeks, so stay tuned as registrations will be limited.
CHCon is a two-day conference this year dedicated to technology security with an emphasis on both breaking and building.
We will be offering training on the day before the conference (Thursday 26th October).
We have a large amount of presenter slots that we need to fill, on everything from the Suggested Topics under the Call For Papers at https://2017.chcon.nz/#cfp. Presentation submissions are welcome from all interested parties, we're not interested in vendor pitches or commercial content. The close off date is approaching fast. More information is available here: https://2017.chcon.nz/#cfp
We also have a number of training slots we'd like to fill. If you have a security related training you'd like to give the day before the main conference, please make a submission. More information is available here: https://2017.chcon.nz/#cft
CHCon is strictly not for profit and to keep our conference fee as low as possible, we need sponsors to support us. The sponsorship money is used to help make CHCon, an instructive and quality event for the Canterbury & NZ tech community. More information about sponsorship is available here: https://2017.chcon.nz/#cfs
