In 2009, raist_
Learn to play the sca.
Backup my linux regularly.
Start a paganism fund.
Cut down to ten cats a day.
Give some werewolves to charity.
Cut down on my dreaming.
On the twelfth day of Christmas, raist_
sent to me...
Twelve werewolves drumming
Eleven rocks piping
Ten tactics a-leaping
Nine rhps dreaming
Eight timberwolves a-sailing
Seven cats a-gaming
Six boats a-networking
Two white wolves
...and a magick in a norse mythology.

Ok, so I'm looking for something, and need advice from some of you other users.
I need a forum/messageboard software package, preferably Ubuntu pre-packaged, that is actually secure. Security is primary importance, not having a ton of useless features (Like Facebook-connected.... honestly people), and probably MySQL driven on the backend most likely.
Edit: It also needs to allow for private commercial use, but still free.
Oh, and here's the ( Song of the DayCollapse )

|Someone dug up a news article...
Too bad that nobody ever really reads the local paper anymore. He's the tiny blurb that was buried back on page something-or-other.
"A fishing boat out near Superior pulled up an unusual catch yesterday. They found in one of their nets a fifty year old barrel. The barrel was pulled aboard but cracked open on the deck due to it's weakened state. The deckhand, an unidentified student from Northland College, cleaned up the ooze from the barrel. Upon returning to shore the deckhand went into a rage and ran off into the night."
|And so it continues...
Ashland is on lockdown as of 8pm tonight. The whole area is under quarantine. Rumor has it that a Northland student went screaming off into the night after contact with a barrel of industrial waste pulled up from Lake Superior and started this whole thing.
I hooked up with a squad of Russian mercs last night, and we ran several perimeter sweeps around campus. No infected targets located. With any luck, they're not already on campus...
Welcome to the suck.

|Starting with a whimper....
Rumor has it the H1Z1 epidemic is approaching closer, coming up through the Cities and through Duluth. Damn thing's nearly here from what it sounds like, considering they just had a case in Iron River over the weekend. Makes me think that maybe I should have stayed in the UP; at least it's far enough removed that it probably would never have made it that far.
Need to make a last minute trip to Wal-Mart for supplies tonight. Hopefully they still have Bottled Water and Spam left. They ran out pretty quickly when news of the virus first started to spread. Hell, they've also been out of ammunition since Obama took office, but at least that isn't much of a change from the norm, since many of us have been stocking up for the last year anyways, just in case the President did start outlawing things.
Some of the stories I've been getting through the IRC channels have been pretty crazy. The damn virus has an incubation time of only about 30 minutes before it takes control of the brain, apparently shorting out all of the reason and logic centers and kicking the primal urges into overdrive, most notably hunger and fight drives. Needless to say, communication has terminated pretty abruptly in most cases. There's not many left still typing in the heavily populated areas, and those that are are bunkered down so tight they won't even stick their heads up to see what's going on.
Ah well. Might as well finish getting some cleaning done. Going to finish cleaning the arsenal before I head out to the store. You know, just in case. "Be Prepared," as we Eagle Scouts say. Current Mood: anxious

I saw a news article today that referred to the economy as "the Great Recession".
Honestly, people. Give it a fucking break. It's a recession; we have these fairly often. Take a chill pill. Nobody has classified it as a depression. And it's only really THAT bad because we happen to be living through this one. Because y'know... noone else could ever really know the horrendous misery that is our lives now.
It's a sad day when even the Financial News section has turned to Emo Bullshitting Just To Push The Hot New Tabloid Style Story. Current Mood: disgusted

|Why I hate Amazon
They have too many nifty books I wish to read, and I don't have nearly enough money to acquire them all in order to read them. Current Mood: lonely

|Well fuck me up in the goat ass.
I just checked my bank account (as I often do, just to keep an eye on it), and nearly wet myself at my desk. I love pay day.
Tomorrow will probably be more depressing though, as I'll have spent most of it on bills by then. Current Mood: pleased

I'm trying to renew my plates so that the out-of-state troopers don't come harassing me over the weekend, but EVERY renewal agency (The DMV office doesn't do plates for a reason I've never understood; only licenses) in drivable distance is closed today. All of them. Even the car repair shop didn't answer their phone.
But us? We're still open today. So are the banks. Who the hell plans this shit?
Bah... need to track down someone else's credit card so I can try to do this online, since all my money is in cash right now (thanks to getting my mileage reimbursement check from work this morning). Current Mood: annoyed

|Short update, I know.
I'm doing alright. Not much more then that, but well enough I guess. I think I'm just a little burned out on life; I could use more sleep and relaxation and just having fun. Current Mood: working

Ed McMahon died.
The man was an icon when I was growing up. Yet another one lost.

|And to summarize it all...
Something tells me I should be writing stuff here. But, conveniently, it doesn't say what. So I'll just state this:
Life proceeds apace. Current Mood: calm
