    cool, but are t-shirts shipped worldwide or just inside USA?

  7. r1ngo: Cartman is not in the US. Maybe he hasn’t taken a look at international shipping prices, or is ready for it β€” not sure, let’s ask him πŸ™‚

    Kiva is interesting, sounds like a good idea.

    Hey guys, I’m looking forward to see your articles. Everyone who has a keyboard and half an hour of spare time can write about their experience, don’t think you are not writers or something. We need more Vyatta related content.

  9. My Vyatta Story

    On my implementation of a project, I was tasked to put up a router to connect 3 sites to the internet. Since we are on a tight budget, I google for a few open source router, my first option was “IPCop”, 2nd was “Vyatta”. Actually I’ve installed IPCop for a few sites way back few years. But when I tried Vyatta, the first time I struggled since I am new to it. But the answer was the forum for the open source router’s. After a few suggestions from forum moderator’s I was able to overcome it. Then comes the time to share your ideas on the forum the give and take thing as IT enthusiast. Me myself as a CCNA grad exposure to vyatta was enormous. There was a time when we have to move to a new IP, there was this guy who bragged about my config (CCNA Certified) he said simple he will just cut and paste the IP address, and so there it goes. To cut the story short blocking websites would not work because of the “cut n paste” mentality he have . Cannot even interpret blocking commands on squidguard. Vyatta is a combination of analysis of Linux Command. Savings wise comparison we did not spend a single cent on these 3 sites. I just migrated from Winblows to Vyatta. I have squid running to these 3 sites to block unwanted sites. I am a follower of “first-priority” and “stig” I only know them in the forum but there post we’re great !!! Kudos to Vyatta …..
