Proxy Patch for tuxtime

Some of the systems that I run tuxtime on are behind firewalls that
block port 4242. To work around that I've patched tuxtime-0.2.2 so
you can specify a new host:port that isn't block. Using an ssh port
forwarding tunnel is the simplest thing.

The patch lets you set in /etc/tuxtime.conf

proxyserver = localhost
proxyport = 4242

and then from a console setup an ssh tunnel like this:

ssh -f -C -L sleep 36

Open Source Web Design (OSWD)

I stumbled across the Open Source Web
site where the encourage you to use their HTML design.
Isn't the shameless borrowing of HTML code the way most people learn
how to design their sites? Their browsing interface is a little slow
going, but if you have some time you can find some nice templates.

I like clean designs like href="
I've adapted the design to href="">blosxom's new
templating style. Try it out.

Blosxom 0+5i

Rael released a new version of
blosxom. While he
didn't take my suggestion of adding a way to tag entries with icons,
he did rework blosxom to walk down through directories looking for
entries. At least I can keep entries organized a bit more.

Currently my categories are:

   |-- blosxom/
   |-- eye-candy/
   |-- family/
   |   |-- kids/A>
   |   ·--


   |-- geocaching/
   |-- linux/
   |   |-- apps/>
   |   |--

   |   |-- debian

   |   ·-- t

   ·-- us/
       ·-- civil-liberties/

A tip of the hat to the Linux command href="">tree which generated
the initial HTML for the above.
