1 Time(s): device lo entered promiscuous mode

Huh, huh, huh. It said "promiscuous mode".

I really do love my patio. I've been spending hours out there, just sitting and reading. The mosquitos are starting to get bad, but I might try to find a citronella candle to keep them away. I never expected the patio to be one of my favorite places....

I made pulled pork last night in the crockpot. I threw a pork roast, half a finely chopped onion, and lots of garlic in the crockpot, and turned it on before bed. I woke up this morning to a house that smells of fresh BBQ. It's great - I didn't touch it with a knife - it just all fell apart with a fork. It'll be lunch.

So what happens when your loopback device goes into promiscious mode? You can read your own traffic?

Yes. It reads all traffic, even that not destined for itself. It's used when you want to run a TCP monitor - I turned it on in an attempt to figure out why talkd wouldn't respond to a request.

I know that's what happens when you put your ethernet device into promiscious mode. But "lo" is the loopback device, not the network. Or am I confusing Linux and Solaris again?

'lo' is the loopback device. 'ethN' is the Ethernet interface on Linux (unlike the BSDs and Solaris, Linux calls all Ethernet devices 'ethN' instead of by the driver name).

I think lo being in promiscuous mode is a tautology.

I did it for Etherial (sp?).

Pork roast

Do you literally just dump a pork roast, onion and garlic in a slow cooker and just let it sit for hours? Any specific kind of pork roast?

Anyway, I'm going to have a go at baking bagels next. No one makes bagels in the island, and the only ones in the shop are imported from England and aren't the greatest (they will be at least a day old by the time you get them to start with). If you have any hints...

Well, that and a jar of BBQ sauce, but yes. I won't use that recipe again, though - the meat was perfect, but the sauce tasted way overcooked (not burnt, just overcooked) and ruined the meat. It was edible, but would have been better without the BBQ sauce. I'm going to try onions, garlic, random spices, and a container of vegetable stock next time instead, then add the sauce afterwards. Something more like this instead. I'll let you know how it comes out.

Bagels: I'll look at home, but I don't think I have a readily-accessible bagel recipe. I've made them a few times. The only trick is this: There are recipes out there that tell you you don't have to boil them. They are wrong. If you do not boil it, it is not a bagel. This looks like a good recipe - and this explains everything you knead to know about kneading them. :)

Re: Pork roast

Oh, yeah. I just picked what was on sale, which happened to be a butt roast. A shoulder would have been better, but they were out of them.
