Quozl's Open Source - NetworkingQuozl works in outback Australia as a firmware and test engineer for a non-profit in Miami that makes laptops for children, and for a telescope as a night assistant and operations technician. When he's not doing that, he writes programs and makes electronic devices, and a few other things.
This site is where he publishes the stuff. Each item is given colour-coded categories of interest that may help you to find related items. It was never intended to be a blog, though it may look like one. It also has an RSS feed:

Now it makes a sound where the pitch is related to the time it takes for an ICMP Echo Request packet (ping) to be returned as an Echo Reply. By default, the pings are at about 20 times per second, set by the length of the sound samples. Such rapid feedback makes it easier to learn where wireless coverage is good, or bad.
It can also be used for reporting the health of an internet connection, using the --noflood option, but the output may be irregular because the PCM device is not being fed at the speed it desires.

Security update for tcpxd, version 1.4 fixes a vulnerability to crafted reverse DNS names.
Quozl had checked out netcat and numerous other TCP/IP relays, but none had all the features he needed, so he rolled his own. This one is optimised for minimal process count and maximum performance for X connections.
