Telstra 3g vs. Vodaphone 3g Latency

Posted by cooper on May 26, 2011 in g33k

Ever wondered why 3G from Vodaphone is so crap? I did, so from Central station I did a ping test on each network one after another. Here is the difference between the latency to an AARNET connected host @ ANSTO. The results speak for themselves.

Vodaphone:

— 137.157.8.5 ping statistics —10 packets transmitted, 10 packets received, 0.0% packet lossround-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 97.773/663.878/1901.235/612.384 ms

Telstra:

— 137.157.8.5 ping statistics —10 packets transmitted, 10 packets received, 0.0% packet lossround-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 88.699/96.234/141.846/15.256 ms

I think Telstra is worth the extra money …

Cat5’O Nine Tails

Posted by cooper on May 21, 2011 in g33k, humour

I think the plastic clips would hurt …

Yes, you are looking at a flogger crafted from cat-5 wiring. (Internet cable, in other words.) It sports a D-ring for easy hanging. This will satisfy your inner – or outer! – geek for sure. 🙂 Each tip is firmly wired in place and secured with bonding glue. Packs quite a sting, and will leave such distinct marks! This baby is bound to make your sub /beg.

mplayer2 (and other goodies) on OpenIndiana (possibly Solaris 11)

Posted by cooper on May 11, 2011 in g33k, solaris

Want mplayer2 (the newer fork of mplayer) that uses ffmpeg goodness to play all the latest avi’s with funky codecs and mp4 hidef goodness. Some Openindiana contributors are building a lot of friendly packages in the oi-sfe repo.

sudo pkg set-authority -O http://staticdev.uk.openindiana.org:10002 oi-sfe
sudo pkg refresh --full
sudo pkg install SFEmplayer2 SFEgccruntime

P.S. Need to manually install SFEgccruntime as it was a forgotten dependency – This will be fixed I have been informed.
P.P.S – ALSO I have only tested and is only expect to work on OI_148

ipadm Script for Openindiana / Solaris 11 Ex

Posted by cooper on May 11, 2011 in g33k, solaris

I love ipadm. It rocks. Much needed for Solaris and derivatives. I seem to keep forgetting the dam new ipadm commands tho. So I wrote this script to help me set up new Solaris machines and thought I would share.

#!/usr/bin/bash

INTERFACE=$1
ADDRESS=$2
GATEWAY=$3

V6AUTO=1

errorCheck()
{
        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
                echo "ERROR: $@"
                exit 69
        fi
}

# Handle Args
if [ $# -ne 3 ]; then
        echo "ERROR: Invalid arguments"
        echo "Usage:\n\t$0: INTERFACE ADDRESS/CIDR-MASK GATEWAY/DEFAULTROUTER"
        exit 1
fi

ipadm create-if $INTERFACE
errorCheck "Unable to create-if $INTERFACE"

ipadm create-addr -T static -a local=${ADDRESS} ${INTERFACE}/v4static
errorCheck "Unable to set static v4 on $INTERFACE"

if [ $V6AUTO -ne 0 ]; then
        ipadm create-addr -T addrconf ${INTERFACE}/v6addr
        errorCheck "Unable to set v6 autoconf on $INTERFACE"
fi

if [ $GATEWAY != "" ]; then
        route add default $GATEWAY
        errorCheck "Unable to set default router to $GATEWAY"
else
        echo "!--> Not setting gateway as none was set ..."
fi

echo "--> Finished setting $ADDRESS on $INTERFACE with $GATEWAY default route ..."
