Walther P22 = Not Legal in California 0

Walther P22 = Not Legal in California

Now I’ve been hearing random notes around the internet that my Walther P22 isn’t legal in CA. While that interests me since I go visit my mother in CA – It doesn’t really matter because if you so much as look the wrong way in CA w/ a gun they’ll shoot you on site. I did a little net diving and came up with the following. If you read Cali...

Gunshow

Went to the gun show at the Reno/Sparks convention center today. It wasn’t terribly large (the “good” show is comming up in two weeks – so I am told), but it was intresting.

Apache + mod_deflate

So I finally got apache running on one of our production servers for internal backup usage. I’ve found that it there is almost nothing GNU/GPL out there that does compression on the fly. So on the server side is apache with mod_deflate on a “random” port w/ a virtual directory of the database backups I want. Client side is a small perl script, curl, and zlib. So downloading 5.5 gigs...
