Clueless and Postfix

Clueless is on netflix, so I watched it tonight. Quite a few jokes went over my head when I was 13, but that didn’t stop me from watching it over and over again. I’d seen it too many times to actually sit and watch it, so I started setting up Postfix using this tutorial from Linux Bade.

Installed postfix, and attempted to send a message to my gmail. Postfix send me an NDR with error code 550-5.7.1. Looks like one of the reasons is I don’t have an IP6 PTR record… which is weird. I don’t know why google would assign an IP4, and not an IP6. Oh well, I’m sick of screwing with it for today.

I’m typing this from my Dell XPS 13 ultrabook. Ron Swanson knocked a glass of water on it a few weeks ago, and I finally got around to completely dismantling it to find the damage. After removing the wee little mother board by the pen, I found some corrosion on the underside. I has able to use a damp paper towel to clean some of it off. Then I used my phone as a magnify glass, and a scrapper to get in between the leads on the IC. Followed it up with a brush from a sneaker cleaning kit I had laying around. And to my surprise it powered back on, and booted to Widows without issue, I thought for sure I was writing off a $1200 dollar laptop.
